Met First Short Term Goal!

Friday, January 11, 2013

I had gained to 211.4 before I became serious in this new year, but today I reached my first short term goal of losing five pounds. Actually, I have lost 6.2 pounds so I exceeded the goal a bit. My next short term goal will be 9 pounds which will take me over the 15 pound mark.

I read where one Sparker had more success using short term goals and so I have decided to try this method. It has definately been an encouragement. I have so far to go but I am going to focus on the short term goal so I won't feel so overwhelmed.

Wishing all of you success in this new year. God Bless all your efforts.

    I think the approach you're using is a good one. After being on this site for over two years and losing over 40lbs. I too have decided to change my ticker this year and give myself a realistic task of losing 15 lbs. this year. I'm doing alright so far. Wishing you all the best.

    Short term goals are extremely important. I'm on one team that focuses on a weekly challenge and it is changed each Sunday. Helps us think about one particular area of our journey for 7 days straight and that is really helping me.

    Congrats on meeting your first STG! They will add up to eventually meeting LTGs!
