WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS:
1. emotional eating
2. too much planning, not enough doing
3. mindlessly eating food portions appropriate for my (much bigger) spouse
4. No community
5. No identity as a "healthy - active" person; I've always been the nerd, not the jock.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL:
1. Recent family deaths make me acutely aware of mortality and shortness of life.
2. I'm rewarding myself for every pound.
3. I have (finally!) recognized that I need continuous support/community just like an earlier major challenge in my life (since completed).
4. I am so completely sick of feeling tired and looking frumpy (see #1)
To reach my December 2015 goal of 150 lbs:
Mini-Goal 1: 176; Mini Goal 2: 174; Mini Goal 3: 172;
Mini Goal 4: 170; Mini Goal 5: 168; Mini Goal 6: 166; Mini Goal 7: 164; Mini Goal 8: 162;
Mini Goal 9: 160; Mini Goal 10: get under 160 and then reevaluate.
