What Mini Goal is motivating you right now!
To be in the healthy bmi range by my 40th wedding anniversary at the end of August! I thought it was 10lbs to go but have looked at the bmi calculator again and it's 13lbs! If I don't make it I will be darn close!7
Can’t believe I’m even saying this but to get into the 130’s. Haven’t seen that since my mid 20’s and have not even been close since. When I started this journey with MyFitnessPal in January, I just wanted to get down to 150. I’m within 5 pounds of this actually happening.19
A kitchenaid by the time I lost 30 kg's9
I have been losing since November 2017. I made it down to 50 lb lose but was hoping to be 60 less by this time. Anyways my mini goal is happening tomorrow when I will be participating in the spring sprint. While I won't be sprinting I will be walking the 5 km and hoping to do it 40 minutes or less. I am currently at 43 and hoping my competitive nature takes over. Next year I am running it.7
So... yeah. The day before my vacation, I was there... I had the number - I even show it on my ticker, right now... but, 9 days of not logging, drinking my calories and eating any old thing I wanted had a somewhat less than satisfactory effect on the scale. So... same goal, different day... lol. Two pounds to get back to merely "overweight." Hoping I can drop that this week.9
Huh, a “woo” for a personal goal. I wonder why?4
@workinonit1956 I’ve been getting woo’s lately on things that I don’t think are warranted and noticed a few other people are as well like new people joining a weight loss challenge, why woo? I think it’s just a troll, some people just can’t feel good about themselves without trashing others, don’t take it personal, the rest of us are cheering you on!5
Until others explained “woo” as suspect info, I thought it meant “woo hoo.” New folks may be cheering on those who signed up for challenges. Let’s be kind to each other.7
@Lora2380 thanks, I think you’re right plus I was probably being over sensitive. Have a nice weekend:)2

'Woo' as in suspect info is not a thing in the UK (I don't think - I had never heard of it anyway until mfp enlightened me)
I really would like a smily face or fun icon for the many comments that were meant to be amusing - and are - though
I took a haitus from MFP while I was maintaining my initial loss and then during the health issues. When I came back, the emotions at the bottom had been added. I would NEVER have thought a "Woo" was a bad thing. I didn't use it, because shortly after coming back and browsing the forums I caught on that there was something amiss. I mean, Woo! Woo hoo! I use that often in a day. A "what" or "no way" or even maybe not a tiny-almost smiley face to go with the weird woo. >.>
So I guarantee there are people like me out there. Going, "oh hey, there's a woo! here!"
To get back on track. Mini-goal motivating me right now would be... hmmmm... Since I've breached the leather jacket goal (THAT IS A WOO HOO!), the next goal is nebulous. I think I want to try to drop 8lbs by my birthday (end of June). I don't know. I need a new mini-goal, lol!7
OMG ... I woo'd someone. I truly thought it was WOO HOO. Now I can't remember who I woo'd so I can't apologize. Yikes! I'm sticking to Like and Hug from here onward. Mini goal - 10 pounds down by the 3rd week of June. Started six days ago and 3.2 pounds down. Reward: New workout outfit.8
Oops! I thought woo was WooHoo, too. Why would there even be a button for the other? That’s not kind. Please, if I have woo’d you, know that I truly meant WooHoo!!! Won’t go near that one again ...7
Oh, and my mini goal is to add cardio back into the mix. Started lifting followed by cardio and then spent more and more time on lifting without cardio. I’ve done cardio twice this week (in addition to the lifting) and I feel like I have more energy again. Next week I’ll try 3 days of each.3
So happy to here the woo’s were good woo’s! Lol you guys all rock I’ve read there were troubles on some other forums with trolls, this is good to know!
Mini goal this month is to get back to walking at least 4 days a week. Bugs have been terrible and kept me inside but no more.6

That's exactly the same thing I did slowly doing less cardio (which is what boosted my weight loss) and relying more and more on lifting! I did some cardio yesterday and wondered why I stopped it as I used to alternate it other day between lifting.
So I guess my mini goal for June is to do at least 2/3 sessions of cardio a week consistently to assist in losing at least another 7 pounds for the month.8
I am aiming for the day when everything in my wardrobe fits! Am looking forward to the dauy when I can select a pair of jeans and not worrying about whether they are the tight ones or not. Today I got closer when some shorts and some cropped trousers that have been too tight for a couple of years were both wearable. Just one pair of aspirational jeans and one evening skirt to go! Another 10lbs should do it7
I began a journey to the top end of normal BMI shortly before New Year’s of 2016. I was gaining a couple of pounds each month, so I told myself, “Take 2 - 3 years. Even the weeks you maintain are, in effect, a loss compared with now.”
It has taken a little over 29 months to go from 228.3 to 169.8, so my next mini-goal is to get my 10 day moving average weight (currently 169.3) to 168.6 and a BMI of 24.9. NORMAL.
P.S. Then I’ll measure my REAL height (LOL) figure out the weight I need to be at that...for BMI=24.9, and that will be my next mini-goal!!
Kinda can’t believe I’m here!9
I want to be under my delivery weight of 210 (im almost there) so now my goal is to get to pre-pregnancy weight 172. Trying to reward myself after every 5 lbs i lose.6

Some people read "Woo" as like Whoo Hoo! I know, I did, at first.5
