Default Goals for the Month of July?

By the end of this month, I'd love to lose 12.4 pounds. While this may seem like a lot, I'm doing a ton of walking now and I think this is attainable. I'm sort of putting this out there publicly so I can work hard to achieve it.

Why 12.4 pounds you ask? (or if you didn't ask, I'll tell you anyway). Well, back in 2003 I got down to 283. I remember that as being the lowest weight I've ever achieved. This month, I have a chance of getting back there again.

So, what are your goals this month?

Wow, Matt. Good for you. I hope you can do it!

I'm scared to death of July. We're supposed to go camping in the Rockies and I have no idea how to deal with the food issues. I do hope to do a LOT of hiking--I can't wait for that--but the food thing--usually tons of starchy carbs--has me a bit freaked. So, all in all, I'll be very happy not to lose any ground. (I'll start a post about it later.)

I like this post. It is great to see your goals.

After a pretty bad June my goals for July are simple:

1-
Stay on my plan that I outlined in the July Points challenge
Food: 1500 calories per day max
Exercise: 7500 steps or 60 minutes of additional exercise
Water: 64 oz

My goal is to get the maximum 4 points per day every day except the 4 days that I am taking care of my mother-in-law. Getting all the exercise in those days is very difficult, so I will cut myself some slack and be happy with however much exercise I can get. Those days are a little scary to me because taking care of DMIL is a big part of what threw June off but 4 days will be much better than 2 weeks.

2- My standard monthly goal of losing at least 5 pounds. That may not sound like much to those of you who can lose 10+ a month but I will stay happy if I can get my 5 pounds. June was the first month that I did not make that goal but I remind myself that most months I lost more than 5 so it all averages out.

3- Lose the label of "morbidly obese". Now that is a huge one to me and you WILL hear from me when that happens!

Well, my dream goal would be 169lbs but realistically I'll say 172.8.
I'm 177.8 today but have just had a huge whoosh, so expect to have to struggle to keep it over the next few days.
