I like mini goals, they are very helpful to me.

It's always nice to shrink, but I don't have any clothes or events to motivate me (yet).

Mini-goal #1:
116 Kilograms

This weight will move me from the "morbidly obese" classification into "obese" classification

Mini-goal #2:
99 kilos

The metric equivalent of the imperial 'one-derland' and I will have lost 100lbs!

Mini-goal #3:
86 kilograms

From "obese" to merely "overweight"!

Conversion is a pain, but I'm an American living in Europe, so imperial/metric conversion has had to become second nature.

I have been thinking of mini goals for a little bit.

One is to fit in my size 18 cloths.

Another would be to be down to 220 which is how much I weighted after my 2nd daughter was born. So 19 more pounds to go. Maybe I could do this by the end of September.

Then underland would be so awesome. That would be 49 more pounds to go.

I want to be able to fit into my formal clothes for the Melbourne Cup party in November. I've got about 6 weeks to lose a dress size.

my mini-goal is to get to 170, out of obese to just overweight.

my mini-mini goal is to get below 180, I like to shoot for the next lower mark in increments of 5, 190, 185, etc.

best to all

I have a dufflebag full of clothes that fit me at 230- I want to get back in them again! Most are just a little too tight for me now.

I wanted to lose 10 pounds by 10/2/12, before I go to San Diego. I set that goal in July. I have one pound to go! It's been a struggle.

My next goal after that is to be a normal BMI by Thanksgiving (149).

My first mini goal is to be in the 230's by Thanksgiving. Past that, I can't even fathom right now!

Hmmmm...let's see. To loose at least 25 lbs. by Christmas/NewYears. More would be awesome. That is my first real goal.
Goal #2: To loose at least 50 lbs. by my 24th wedding anniversary, April 1st.

I need to loose 100 lbs. Once I reach it, I'm not sure what I'm going to do to celebrate. I know that my hubby would love to go back to Disneyland. We shall see! :-)
