As per BMI charts, I have to get down to 135 lb. to be in the normal range. That means I have to lose 66 lb. I will take the 5 lb mark as a way to check I am headed in the right direction, and every 10 lb. I will celebrate. No idea on how to celebrate yet. So far it has always been food and that needs to change. I hate shopping so that would not be it... I have 10 lb to make a decision...

Ultimate goal = 130 lbs (I have ALWAYS wanted to weigh 120... but that is no longer my main concern although I would be happy to maintain that weight effortlessly.

Happy Goal= 140

Satisfied= 150.

There you have it, a 20 pound window of satisfaction. I looked good at 150, felt good... but was very stressed during medical school at that time, didn't enjoy it, wanted to be 120. at 130, I wasn't happy even though i LOOKEd VERY THIN! I still wanted to be 120. Gaining weight more than anything, taught me to be satisfied with my body as it is now... because one day this may be exactly what I wish I looked like.

I have about 50 pounds to lose to get to my Ultimate goal. since BDS insists that we start small, My first goal will be to weigh 183. [ I can't believe how much I weigh now! But... I'm going to own it, love it, and FIX it. I'm heading in the right direction, down (in reference to the scale.)]

I will set 5 pound goals and focus ONLY on those. The big picture will come into focus as I reach my smalle goals!

geez, I can repost the same thing I wrote on this thread 2 years ago since I still want to lose 60-70 pounds in a NY minute! But I've starting the program again from the beginning. I have response cards that remind me to be happy with each and every pound lost. And I have set a 5 pound goal. When I get to 215, my reward is a nice pedicure at Bliss.

Well, I think it is pretty obvious from my screen name what my ultimate goal is. However, I agree smaller goals are great - achieving them gives us a sense of accomplishment and empowers us to strive for our next goal. WW also rewards us with each 5 lb loss. As it happens, I am down 20lbs at WW this week - so 5 lbs is my goal. I would love to have achieved 25 lb weight loss before Christmas. So - only 11 more 5 lb goals to go!

I stalled long as I could with this chapter. I am not fun of setting weight loss goals. But my dr gave me a challenge in the past. that was to lose 10 pounds by my next visit with him.............So I WILL ATTEMPT to lose those pounds except I am taking it by week. I am guessing that will be a 1 pound or a half pound by September. It is in place and official. emoticon I posted that I hate to set a goal out there then don't meet it. But I am being more positive and pray my way thur.

This is a tough one, since my mind is telling me I want to lose all 60 pounds in a day and be done with it! :o) So, I made a few response cards and will read them daily to break the cycle of sabotaging thoughts.

Realistically, I've set my goal to losing 5 pounds. I reset my weight loss tracker to reflect my new goal. And when I get there, I'm going to make an appt for a Bobby Brown makeover.

My goal is to lose 5 lbs per month. I'd be thrilled for more, but I want to stay realistic. Plus that gives me the opportunity to set a new goal of 5 lbs every month (regardless of what I lost the previous month). I'm kinda into fresh starts. emoticon

I think I'll buy myself an article of clothing for every 5 lbs loss. It will make me feel good and it will help keep me clothed as I go for the ultimate goal....which is 80 lbs by Apr 2013...seems a long time away, but that's at 5 lbs per month. I'd be super excited if I reach full goal by Dec 2012, but that's bonus! Right now, it is one month at a time. emoticon

Day 10

Set A Realistic Goal

I am currently 252 pounds, my goal is to be 250 in 9 days. That will be Christ-mas Day, I have really backed off the sweets and whites so I am pretty sure I can do this! Then my goal is to lose consistently not yo-yo 10 pounds.

I've started setting small goals. First one was to get down to 205 (from 207/8). I hit 206 this morning! So by next week I'd like to see 204... might be a challenge because my period is due BUT before that little bloating jump we get a week of higher metabolism, so if I can flex that resistance muscle all week through the PMS..... :D

I've already got a goal set, but for now I will concentrate on my Day 10 goal to lose 5 lbs, so 162 is my goal. When I reach it, I will either buy myself a new pair of pants, or a sale-price purse from Susan Nichole Handbags.

I go to Weight Watchers so I weigh in and set my goals there and keep track of them on my Weight Watchers card. I am starting at 175 and my eventual goal is 137 but Weight Watchers agrees with Beck that we should set smaller goals. The initial goal is to lose 5%. That will be nine pounds for me. So, that is my goal right now and I will set a new goal when that one is reached! YAY!

Be blessed,
Dawn

Two pounds a month: I should be able to do this. When I exercise, I am hungry, but my clothes fit better, and I feel better and get more done in my life as a whole. Still, I gained a few pounds of weight at first---started over-eating on some things that I don't often over-eat on. I seem to have settled-down now, so I might get a pound a week. But I'm not holding out for the weight as much as for the productivity of my life.

As Beck mentions, losing weight slowly means it's off for good. Under a year ago I was almost down to my target weight by eating mostly raw foods and being in the garden a lot.

Then the seasons changed: my garden froze; I cannot eat lettuce when the weather is cold without being cold myslef; I almost quit exercising because of my hips, back, and neck; the bananas at the store started giving me indigestion as they do every winter--and I got the pounds all back to where I am now, within four months or so.

So, I ordered Fitness Magazine, found a SparkPeople advertisement, and here I am!.

I am approaching this Beck Solution with blind faith (a really new thing for me, the control-freak). Because I have always done it my own way, and failed, I have vowed to change my behaviour and my results by following the lead of people that are more successful than I am.

In that spirit, I will set my goal for five pounds and get ready for a celebration when I hit that mark of 185 pounds. (I want balloons!)

Your life is not a dress rehearsal, it is the real thing. Do what makes you happy. Do it now.

I thought I was just going speed through this goal and not take a whole day on it, but it was good to sit with it awhile. On the surface, it's easy to agree with a small goal, but it helps to admit that I do yearn to be back to my goal size.

It also helps for me to remember that the times I have set large weight loss goals, I did achieve them but I also got obsessed and cranky for months at a time. And I also started hovering WAY too close to the bottom edge of my calorie range -- bordering on eating-disordered thinking. No wonder I fell apart when it came to maintenance.

So, this time, in the interest of sanity, I am committing to reaching 145. I even "officially" set it as my SparkPeople goal. When I get there, I can choose to set another goal, but right now, getting there and staying there will be an accomplishment and an improvement. In this way, I'm hoping quick gratification will be a good thing! :)

The goal I'm working on right now is to get under 200, then I think I'll shoot for 185 (which is the top end of the "overweight" BMI range for me) and then baby steps from there, since I have no idea what a good weight is for me.

I go for MINI goals. I am looking to lose between 3 and 5 pounds a month. I can usually hit that, although my weight release program has slowed in the past few months. I am not plateauing, just eating too much.

Anyway, I find that anything beyond a month makes me twitchy, so I don't look all that far ahead.

Be Well.

My first goal ---to be down to 220 by September 1, 2010 that’s 5 pounds in August. BDS doesn’t have me dieting until day 15 and this is day 10 on August 3rd so that gives me about 3 weeks to lose 5 pounds. I think that should be a reasonable goal.

I will set my first goal to lose 5 pounds, as the book suggests. However, my ultimate goal is to attain a healthy body fat percentage of 25%. I am in the upper end of healthy for my height/weight, but I am in the "overfat" category.

My reward for making my first goal is to get a Bodybugg. I love fitness gadgets!

Since I have been doing this for a few weeks, I realize that my goal is not really a number, it is feeling in control, successful, healthy, fit, and at whatever weight I can sustain with a reasonable food plan for the rest of my life. I have never been small in my adult life so smaller would be fun, but it is not very important. Light and Strong is my mantra.

This makes a lot of sense to me. In fact before I began reading my books, I set out goals for 5 pound increments. Yes, my ultimate goal is more than 5 pounds. Just now I would like to get to 145 and if things so well, perhaps lower than that. But what I really want is to learn how to eat without my emotions pushing me to eat; to have tools to deal with the emotions, to like myself completely, to exercise regularly to be strong, and to be light to be healthy. Light and Strong is a new mantra for me.

I am not setting a time limit, I am not allowing the scale to determine my mood for any day, I am not trying to restrict calories ridiculously. I am trying to learn to eat healthier and to eat now in a way that will flow into maintenance.

I am going to stay on my plan if I hit a plateau. I will wait 3 months of following my plan without any weight loss before I consider lowering my calories. As long as I do it safely, I will increase exercise to break a plateau.

If I must reduce calories lower than a level I can life with lifelong to continue to lose, then I will accept that I am at my ideal weight—NO MATTER WHAT IT IS.

I am pleased to say that I am already ½ way to completing my first 5 pound goal.

Congratulations to me.

My goal will be to lose five pounds and get down to 220. I also want to stick to my stated exercise program.

My first long term goal will be to get back to a 36" waist. That's where I was when I got out of college. I really have no idea what weight that would be at but I know it's doable for me since I was overweight when I was in college.

My big goal is to get down to 160...but that's almost 80 lbs away. For a short term goal, I'm shooting for 230lbs. That's about 7lbs or so (my weight fluctuates a lot day to day). For me, 230 would be awesome. I'm thinking it would deserve a trip to Borders, or maybe a movie.

What are your goals?
My goal is 5 pounds. And lots of them for the next year or so.

And how did you determine them?
Using Dr. Beck's guideline in her book, It just makes sense. A journey starts with just one step, just keep moving forward and working toward that goal.

While it is true sometimes goals can be unrealistic smaller goals do get you in the neighborhood.

I love to read...buying new books is always a treat for me. I recently read the first True Blood book, and couldn't put it down. Sooooooo, I decided I would tie in my goals to reading the whole series (10 books total). I have set a bunch of mini goals, and the whole series will take me down to my goal weight. I started off with 5lbs, then three 3lb goals (the first few weeks are always the fastest loss), then 2 lb goals thereafter:

Start: 159
5 lbs 154 book 2
8 lbs 151 book 3
11 lbs 148 book 4
14 lbs 145 book 5
16 lbs 143 book 6
18 lbs 141 book 7
20 lbs 139 book 8
22 lbs 137 book 9
24 lbs 135 book 10

I am so focused right now on my mini-goal so I can go get that next book, I could care less about my ultimate goal!! I'll just be working a few pounds at a time, and it actually feels totally do-able! ; )

I am breaking down my goal weight into 5 pound increments. I am so focused on those 5lb, I even made myself a response card with the "Goal weight" on it.
I have to say, reading that number everyday is really helping me stay focused.

It says to set a goal of 5 pounds...but I'd really like my first goal to be 1 lb. So, after 1 lb of weight loss I'm going to get a massage. After 5 lbs I'm going to make my husband take me putt-putt golfing.

I have the Complete Beck Diet for Life, so I'm going to do these in the order of the tasks presented in that book.

This is Task 2-Set a modest weight loss goal.
My goal is to reach my original weight and then continue to a normal BMI. So, first goal is to get back to the 150's. Second goal is to get to 150 and ultimatly 145. I'm to take it slow and see where it takes me.

I'm finally in the 220s (that's a 20-25 pound loss for me) During that time I went by 5-10 pound marks but I'm only weighing in every two weeks now. So my goal is to keep losing weight over the summer. My last low weigh in was 225, then I gained a few over vacation trip. Haven't weighed in since then, and I don't want to focus on a number. But I would love to get into the 210s by the end of the summer, and to be able to wear my 16W dress pants in the fall for work (right now I can just squeeze into them but much too tight to consider wearing in public) When I bought them I weighed 218, but i'm not sure what my measurments were

Am reposting my goals from further down the page:

First goal: 5 lbs down

Second goal: read the cards daily (it's been a fight)

Third goal: 10% weight loss

Fourth goal: fit into the turquoise suit that's been sitting in my closet. I also bought a "goal" suit that's patiently waiting for me in my closet - my goal (it's 3 sizes down from where I am now) is to fit into it for the start of the school year in late August.

And anyone who wants to SparkMail to encourage each other, please feel free to shoot me a message.

On to catching up with my posts!

My big goal is to get to 129, which would take me out of the overweight BMI range. There's a print that I like that I will buy as my reward WHEN I get there.

My next intermediate goal is to get to 132, which will be 15 pounds down since January. I will buy myself a plant for my desk when I get there.

My ultimate goal is 160, which is far awy so I am going with Beck's suggestion of 5 pounds at a time. So my goal is to lose 5 lbs!

I have less than 6 pounds to my goal weight so that's my goal. I set my tracker so I will lose it by June. I'm eating in range nearly every day which is great for me. I'm usually excited if I can manage 5 days a week. The last two weeks, it's been every day. I'm making great progress on that front.

My calorie range went up slightly when I adjust my fitness goals, but the amount I burn per activity went down. I now burn less than 300 calories for an hour of aerobics. Before it was close to 350. For Pilates it fell from 180 a hour to 144. So now, I have to work out much longer to burn the same number of calories according to my fitness tracker and it expects me to burn more calories a day. I love that logic.

I suspect the higher number is realistic since I always burn far more than my minimum for the week. It just seems like a lot 409 a day when an hour aerobics is only 297.



Maintenance range. 127 to 132.

My goal is 5 pounds a month. I'd like more, but totally unrealistic for me at this time.

I have mapped this goal out several times & always shoot for something completely unrealistic. I always plan to lose 2 lbs. a week which just isn't happening right now, so I will have to shoot for at least 1 lb. a week & celebrate 5 lbs. at a time.

My original final goal was 130 or less, but now that I have really thought about it, at this point I will go for my first "Milestone" which will be to get back into "ONEderland" again. My second milestone will be 179 & no longer obese!!! My third milestone is to be at my healthy BMI which would be at 149.

I know this is a long way off, but if calculating 1 lb. a week, I should be at my first milestone by November 10th & I am okay with that, as long as I get there!!!

Well, although I currently weigh over 200 pounds (203.4 at my weigh in this morning), I already feel like I've reached my goal in so many ways. I've dropped a size and 15 pounds this summer. I went shopping today for food and school supplies and I felt DEAD SEXY. No makeup, hair a mess, tennis shoes, jeans, and a t-shirt, but sexy as hell. Now, granted, there are women who would "rather die" than weigh what I weigh, and I still have quite a bit of weight to lose, but the progress I've made so far has really changed my attitude. I can feel my abs and obliques when I move (thanks Turbo Jam!). I have more muscle definition everywhere. I've lost inches, I've increased my fitness level, and I feel awesome! At first it was all about the number on the scale, but more and more I'm able to rely on how I feel mentally, how my body feels, and how my clothes fit as indicators of my progress.

So, my first goal will be to weigh 199.9 or less. Like I said, I'm currently 203.4. I don't really care how long it takes as long as it happens in a reasonable amount of time (like, a month, not a year!). I haven't weighed under 200 in years, so it'll be a big accomplishment. I just might have to go out and buy shoes! From then on my goals will be pant sizes (currently 16).

I know just how you feel. I've decided to start weighing only once a month because if the scale isn't moving fast enough, I start to absentmindedly pick where I shouldn't be! I have no control over the scale -- only my actions; So I'm concentrating on that!

It's always a good idea to revisit your goals and make sure they are working for you!

this is a really hard one for me. there's something about saying "my goal is to lose X pounds" that puts me in the land of "out of control panic" which heads down the road of disbelief and into the suburb of "I can't do it anyway so why try?".

I can set goals to change eating or exercise habits but to lose a certain # of pounds?!?!?!? Weird, eh?

So I listened to this chapter several times and here's a goal that i'm ok with: "I will lose 5#s each month, and on the first of each month, re-evaluate if I choose to lose another 5 pounds or remain at the same weight for that month."

whew! I made it past the exit for "Panic ---"

Day 10 - DONE
