Thank you. I like your goals... Make sure you take monthly measurements (upper & lower arms, upper & lower leg, bust, waist, hips) to track overall inches lost. You will not always lose pounds at certain points you will more noticeably see a loss in inches. A weekly or bi-weekly weigh in is best when starting out. I do bi-weekly, it tricks the mind into seeing more weight lost which is better than seeing 3pounds a week, see 6 every two weeks. Haha. It's a mind game you play with your subconscious.
I look forward to seeing weekly & monthly updates from you! Stay encouraged.
"Vague goals will invariably set you up for failure, and that's not what we want here."
This is our team quote of the week. It basically means that in order to seriously be a winner in your fitness goals you need to set parameters. Now I want you all to take some time this week and really evaluate where you are, where you started, and where you are trying to go. Create specific and defined goals for yourself. And I want you to post them. We will hold each other accountable. I can only help if I know you need help. I will start us off with an example and I will post my actual one shortly after.... It should look something like this start two weeks ago @200lbs today @198 goal @170 by feb 14, 2013. Get it? Be specific..... No one is judging you because we are all here for the same reasons!!!! To get healthy and lose weight!
