If all goes to plan, I will be finished with my doctorate in September 2015. Per my cardiologist I need to take my weight-loss slowly, so I'm just going to align my weight loss and education goals, and aim for a target weight of 150 by the end of my doctorate program. (The end weight will probably need to be adjusted, since I'm going purely off my BMI. I've never been below 200 lbs., so I don't know what my "right" weight is.)

I've reset my weight goals inside SparkPeople, but here they are in full so that I can't forget:

Weight Goals
End of 2012 – 219.5
End of 2013 – 193.5
End of 2014 – 167.5
Sept. 2015 – 150

If I can stay focused and motivated, this is doable. The "focused and motivated" part worries me a bit, though…

    emoticon take baby steps and focus on doing little and often for exercise. three 10 minutes sessions gives you 30 minutes a day and feels less daunting. Don't forget that housework it all counts.
    As for motivation I too have a problem with that but have a new reason to stay both focused and motivated a Grandchild in June.
    Setting a small goal will help keep you both focused and motivated. emoticon you will get there and we are here to support you emoticon
