Setting Mini Goals

Nope, Not really a challenge.

If I set my goals low, I believe I can achieve them.

I am on the quest to loose 80lbs by July 2009.

But I will only set my goal as 8 lbs a month.

I am failing do to stress, will power and all the other usual excuses I can think of.

So here I am 235, back up from 200.

Can I do it? Yes, I think I can!!!!

    Good for you!
    I am just starting out again and I am determined to do it. I am sure that if you keep logging on regularly and use all the support on here you will do fine! There are so many people who have managed it, and we are no different really!!
    8lb a month sounds like quite a lot to me- good luck!!

    I agree, if you want set goals that can beat then you should go for half that amount. My target is quite aggressive but I know in the next few months I am not travelling too much so I will get more time to go down the gym...plus I have the incentive of a holiday at Christmas to look not so chunky for.

    I even set my ticker initially to a lower amount so that I don't feel so discouraged. My final goal is 110lbs, but I haven't been there in years and it's going to be a long haul... so I totally understand (and am also participating in) the need to set short-term goals.

    Add enough of those 8lbs-loss months together and you'll be there... we both will be.
