When you have a very big goal (like losing 100+ pounds) break it into smaller goals (like 10 pound increments). It's easier than losing all the weight before you reward yourself, and easier to see progress. Remember, just 2 pounds a month is 24 pounds in a year! 100, 76, 54, 28, 4.
Total 4 yrs, 4 months. One pound a week is 52 pounds lost in a year! Total 1 yr 11 months!
