    Not finishing the little bit of food my kids leave on their plates :#

    I do this too often. I am so glad it is only 1 small plate though.

    every time I need more motivation, I look at my starting photo when I was 62 lbs heavier. It wasn't that long ago either! I remember how i couldn't walk up my house stairs without getting winded with very labored breathing. I remember when I was so sick all the time because of my choices I made! I'm 38 lbs from my ultimate goal and even right now I feel so incredible, and I can't believe I let myself get so unhealthy. I've said this to myself from the 1st time I went walking..."One Step, One Calorie, One Day at a time"

    Hoping to be under 200 by the time I go on a road trip in mid-september. I'm planning to continue tracking calories while I'm out, but *kitten* happens when you're on the road, so it'd be nice to hit a lil (arbitrary) milestone by then. We have a spa treatment planned at a historic mineral water bathhouse, which seems like a nice treat for a changing body.

    to not gain weight while recovering from a sprained ankle. Trying to figure out needed calorie intake with reduced activity is rough when I barely have it figured out with my "normal" activity.

    my mini goal is a number--I want to be below 250 lbs. I'm bouncing between 252 and 254 (probably hydration variation). I figure that's concrete and low enough that the turn-around time to achieve it isn't daunting.

    Since the spirit of this thread isn't to be number-obsessed--I'm having serious problems with the connective tissue in my feet (I'm not diabetic though thank goodness) so can barely walk and need to get the weight off so that I get my mobility back. But I expect I won't start seeing that kind of benefit for the next 50 lbs or so, so I'm looking at smaller goals in the meantime.

    When I've gone for a 'spa' vacation it's usually to Napa, and for some reason up there all the high-end restaurants offer fresh-made donuts (real donuts not those c*ptastic 'krispy creme' things) as a breakfast option.

    It's okay to allow carefully selected indulgences, but you need to know what the regional offerings are so that you can pick wisely. I try to pick things I can't get at home, both because it's a special thing for the place I'm visiting and also so that I can't go binge on it when I get back home.
