Default Memorial Day Goals

Hi,

I just started back on plan today (yikes!) Does anyone else want to set up a goal for Memorial Day? When I was here before, people would set short term holiday goals.

I'm setting a ten lb weight loss goal. It's about seven weeks away, so that is realistic.

Sherry

I am with you. I am new with this whole thing, but I was wanting to do a short term goal. I will say 10 lbs. also. Thanks for letting me join.

On another site I am also in a Memorial Day challenge. I set a goal of 12 lbs.

Good luck ladies!

I want to set a goal of 15-20 lbs. Today I am back on salads and I might try to get some type of workout in!

Thanks!

Welcome, Rachel!

Thanks to everyone or joining. I'd love to lose 15 lbs by then, but I need to be realistic.

Great goals! I have set goals for myself by first day of spring, first day of summer, first day of autumn, and then first day of winter. That seems to help me since the holidays themselves aren't always spaced apart enough to give me a chance in-between!

Thumbs up Good Idea

Count me in! I've stayed on track today, which for me means a lot! I sit at a desk all day in front of a computer! And I didn't snack all day long like I used to, just my one banana at a planned time!

So I'll set my Memorial Day goal at 12 pounds!

A couple of weeks ago I set a Memorial Day goal of 15 lbs. The goal was really to get me below 220...back into the 2-teens (as Mrs.Q so delightfully calls them). I'll renew that goal here....I'm 4.5 lbs in.

These mini-goals really do HELP break up the monotony! It makes it feel like real accomplishment that just continues to snowball.

Thanks Sherry!

Tricia,

I like your avatar. My son did really well pitching for little league for the first time this weekend. It was about 33 degrees, and I can't believe they still played. He pitched two innings and struck out four players!

Sherry

Guess you can tell by my new avatar and ticker that I love the color lilac!

The lilacs are blooming where I live--beautiful!

What a great idea! We haven't done one of these in a long time. These last 12 lbs. are getting really ridiculously hard to lose. So I'm going to say that I'd like to lose 3 lbs. by Memorial Day.

Okay...deep breathe here....I'm going for 20 pounds! Yep, I might be crazy, but I'll never know unless I try.
