Thanks to everyone for the love and support :hug: you have shown me the past 3-4 days. I was in a bad place and concentrating to much on making this weight by this date and I have discovered with all your support that I am going about this the wrong way.

I am now going to celebrate each and every ounce I lose and I have changed my signature and my blog to monitor that weight loss. The only goals I have set for myself is 100 pounds by 11/01/2012. I will continue my hard work and dedication and will take this weight of safely and at my bodies pace.

With my new monitoring system in place I have already accomplished 3 milestones and look forward to knocking off the rest of them with all ya'lls love and support!

Positive attitude is the way to go.......but you set a date for your self?! What's going to happen when you reach 99 pound lost on that day? Are you going to call yourself a failure? Don't put a time limit on yourself. Small progress is still progress.

That's so wonderful and a great idea!
I have been thinking a lot about my goals, and was debating the whole date thing myself... on one hand good to keep myself in check, on other I think it would completely derail me when I don't attain one in the timeframe I set... so great to hear another perspective on it as well!
Glad you are feeling better!! :) You have accomplished so much already!

Just remember it is a goal, not a deadline. They are completely adjustable. And ALWAYS attainable.

Yup. Just a loose goal to be a "carrot" to keep you moving along the path. Doesn't have to be NAILED by that date. Not like you will quit, right? Can always readjust the carrot and the next "time block" -- just keep moving it along some more.

Your body is always grateful for ANY EFFORT -- joints, heart, mobility, etc. Improvement is improvement -- it won't care!

100 pounds by 11/01/2012 is the goal I am working toward. If I get there and have lost 99 pounds we will celebrate the 99 pounds :carrot: and adjust our goal, diet, and workout to accomplish the ultimate goal which for me is 100 pounds gone before the end of this year.
