My first goal was to start Feb. 1 this year to reduce my weight from 191 pounds to 150 pounds by Dec.30,2016. It works out to 21.5%.I would never start out with 10% or less go because I would likely not go any farther, it will not motivate me enough to keep doing it!!
I have past this goal now. emoticon emoticon

My next goal is to lose another 7.4 % to get my weight to 139 pounds which is what I am working on now. After I reach this goal of 139 pounds by the end of this year my final goal will be to lose 2.9% to get my weight to 135 pounds some time next year. When I reach 139 pounds I will set my date for my final weight loss. I always want to start with a large weight loss goal first with a long enough date to reach it and I never set a goal of how much to lose each week. Each week since I started losing I lose less weight each week. It started with 7 pounds a week for the first 2 weeks and is now less then 1 pound a week.

10% is good I have actually set a 5% just to give me a quicker goal to boost my spirits and feel accomplished. I had my first child in July and am ready to get back to healthy habits and get myself back to feeling good.

My goals are set for 2014 and I am ready to get healthy! I just turned 40, I just had a beautiful baby boy and I want to be a great roll model for him.

I am still following the eating plan and exercising too.
Yesterday and today are hard (stressed out).
Weight has been going up and down since I reached the 10%
but I am still below.
Don't think Holidays will be a major problem.
I did get in the habit of smaller meals and snacks all through the day.
Major problem at the moment is my MOOD.

Will the Holidays be a special concern for you?

Thanks ladies. Went overboard last night (over-ate) and gained 0.5 lbs on the scales this morning, but I am back on track.

The 10% Solution - losing 10% of your initial body weight
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivat

n_articles.asp?id=454


First emoticon : as from today I lost 10% of my original body weight.

Dec 25, 2011: 250 lbs
July 24, 2012: 237 lbs
Sept 9, 2012: 224.4 lbs


Before SparkPeople, on my own, trying to develop healthy eating habits:
Dec 25, 2011 to July 22, 2012: 13 lbs lost over 30 weeks = 0.43 lbs average per week

With SparkPeople and the Readers Digest Diet:
July 23 to September 9th, 2012: 12.6 lbs lost over 7 weeks = 1.8 lbs average per week
