What Mini Goal is motivating you right now!
I got my first one... to be under 230 (first time in 4 months) next goal... get under 220! We've got this people... we can do, if we want it bad enough.10

How's it going Pedro? Your goal is to get to 200lbs.. that is one of my major goals. I was there when I retired from the Air Force... but then took a job where I sit behind a desk.... fast forward 16 years (wow, I'm getting old) I just got under 230 last week... and steaming towards getting under 220.4
I went from obese II to obese I a few pounds ago and didn't notice/realize. My mini goal needs to be, finding a way to set and celebrate mini goals that work for me. I really don't have any; I've tried making up a couple but I forget I set them. Maybe I'm not goal-oriented? Will have to think on this one . . .10
Mini Goal: learn to keep track of my rolling average weight instead of whatever bloated situation I happen to be on a given morning. On a more concrete level, my rolling average is now 99,5kg and there’s two weeks before Christmas, so I’d like to see the rolling average start with a 98 and preferably on the lower half, so below 98,5kg.
Didn’t happen, but the main thing is I still lost weight. My rolling average went from 99.5 to 99.2, so just over half a pound lost over the holidays and the weeks leading up. Getting my rolling average below 98.5kg is still my next goal, I even set it up as a milestone on my Happy Scacle app.
DONE! Rolling average today is 98.4kg.
Next mini goals:
- the next Happy Scale milestone at 97.4kg
- increasing my running speed to 8.0kph and stamina to where I can comfortably run on the treadmill for 20 minutes
- Find a new frozen berry product or combination to use in afternoon snacks after my old favourite was discontinued
It took almost 6 months of dealing with work burnout, covid lockdown, working from home and gym closing, but...
I hit that Happy Scale milestone of 97,4kg (more specifically 97,37) today!
I did also find the new frozen berry product, so good on that too. Running stopped pretty much immediately after writing that last post (I got severe food poisoning and didn't get back into my workout habits), but I started running a little again just this week.
I haven't been to this side of the forums in a while, yet today I felt like checking this out and found my old mini goals. Weirdest coincidence in a while.11
charmmeth Posts: 936 MemberI have two electronic scales in this house, and they weigh 0.6-0.8 kg difference which is a bit disconcerting. On the heavier weighing scale I am 84.0 kg as of this morning, which is very pleasing. My next mini goal is 83.5 kg, and then 83.0 kg and then 82.5 kg which will bring me below 13 stone (in UK parlance).7
My son just turned 1 yesterday, he will soon be running around everywhere and I want to be able to catch up to him. My plan is to get back to a keto woe like I was before I was pregnant with my son.10
i have had a lot of stomach surgeries with three c sections and various crohns related stuff they have told me my muscles have had it so im working on chloe ting and my goal is to get some definition and to beat my stomach muscles into submission4
Mini goal 1 : get under 70kg (I was 70.4kg this morning so hopefully this one is in the next week or two)
Mini goal 2 : fit COMFORTABLY into my jeans. It is theoretically possible to get them on and buttoned right now but not if I want to be able to breathe or move.
Mini goal(s) 3: each 2kg down from 70kg until 62kg (I’ll be chubby at 62kg but theoretically l’ll be out of overweight.
1st mini goal achieved. I've been solidly under 70kg for 5 days now (I am never confident until it's been a few days - there's a lot of fluctuations)
2nd goal is pretty close. They are certainly loser than they were but I'm not quite calling it yet.15
#1 lose 5 pounds this by the end of July
#2 4 workouts per week this July (I currently do 2-3 per week)10
To get back to at least my pre-COVID weight by October (gained 10lbs) and stop snacking again.11
My mini goal is to get into the 11st bracket for the first time since 2012 and drop my BMI below 30, 5.5lbs to go11
Mini goal ...putting a stop to the slow gain & to lose the 5lbs I've gained since January in the next 2 weeks10
I don't know if this is such a petty reason, but my friend recently gave me a belly chain as a present, and I would like to wear it with pride instead of belly rolls.10

I'm surprised (but pleasantly so) that I am able to announce today that my 7-day average JUST snuck under my goal.
Next goal: Under 190.0 on the 28-day average. That number is 193.6 today.
It may have taken nearly two months, but I'm pleased to announce that my 28-day average has now dropped below 190.0 lbs (189.4 today).
Next up: Under 185.0 on the 28-day average. Then under 184.0, as that's my BMI cutoff to the top of being class I obese (one class closer to normal).9
Leaving the 220's forever. 1.9lbs to go12
mini goal today if to make it through todays fast day. My self already saying your hungry. I keep telling self.. no you're not it's all in your head.. Then my head says yeah i got a headache from no food. so now im filling up on water and a diet coke.. sorry it a has to for my head. Im trying to get off of them but it is soooo hard. Happy 4th weekend coming up to you all. Hope we all get around eating too much of the good stuff.7
It's scale-goal, but for the past 3 days I've been below 220 lbs for the first time in about 5 years (I keep records), so my immediate goal is just not to slip up and bounce back up above 220 lbs. Ordinarily 4th of July family feasting would challenge that but I live alone and with the pandemic going on I'm planning to virtually 'meet' my parents for BBQ via facetime or zoom and that will give me control of what's on my menu--using a laptop on their table and on mine so it's like a window between us during dinner.10

your headache is more likely due to caffeine withdrawal. Consider adding tea or coffee to your allowed liquids on fast day to avoid this problem.5

Agreed. And I'll add, there's nothing wrong with Diet Coke. Drink it if you like it, @lorrieannoberry!
Artificial sweeteners are vilified, but unless they have a negative affect on you personally, there's nothing wrong with them in moderation.4
