I know many of us like to keep up little goals along the way so let's share what our next one will be.

My next two are very close together. So close but yet so far lol

15% Weight Loss (254)
Under 250 (249.9)

I'm dying to get under 220. That'll be 140 pounds lost for me! More importantly, I've never been under that weight as an adult, and in all honesty it's only the third time I've even been in the 220's since junior high. :dizzy: After that I'd like to be just overweight and not actually obese, but that's still a ways off. ;)

My next mini goal (other than my monthly goals) will be my Hoopnotica April training goal. It's event specific. So I wish to be 248 by the time. It won't make or break it. After that, it would be Playthink Movement Festival: 240, I think.

The next couple of things for me will be moving from the 250s to the 240s and then getting to 245, my Valentine's Day goal. I like working on challenges that go for around 6-8 weeks. I try to pick something realistic and I get very motivated to push myself that little bit harder to try to make sure I hit my goal.

My next mini goal is to get under 193 (hopefully by the end of January) which will mark 50% of the way. I am going to reward myself with a red lipstick after extensive research for the best shade for me!

I just hit my mini goal of no longer being "morbidly" obese THIS MORNING! Super thrilled!

Next up is the V-day goal, which is also my 15% gone mark - 15lbs from now. I'm so PROUD!

My next goal is to return to eating whole foods and counting my calories. I've been letting myself eat whatever since the holidays and I'm bored with that. Time to get back to routine.

SarahFairhope - Congrats! That's such a great feeling, isn't it?

My next goal is to get to 100 lbs lost! Only 6.4 more lbs to go. I can't wait!

Mine are in sets of 10s.

Minigoals of getting to 229
Then 219
Then 209
And so on.

Also clothing sizes as well. Right now I'm in comfortable in size 18s. Then I want to be 16s, 14s, etc.

Well, I think I'm always excited about the decades, so I'm excited to be in the 220's.

Next Decade: 220's

10% (I think this one will be permanently engrained because of Weight Watchers): 218- 13.4 pounds to go. Perhaps I should make this my Valentine's Day Challenge. 218 sounds dreamy right now! LOL

Onward to ONDERLAND. We shall never look back again! Except in order to pull our friends with us.

Since I recently reached ONEderland, my next goal is to move from obesity to just overweight which is about 20 pounds away, then on to GOAL!!

My goals so far are to reach 299 and that one is so close but taking forever to me..
My Valentines day goal is to loose 25 pounds total.

I haven't made any after that. Trying to start slow so I don't overwhelm myself, but I have been OP for 11 days and I'm so proud of myself.

Great job to everyone making goals and sticking to it. That's have the battle!!

epicskyline - 6.4, DANGEROUSLY close!! Wow, 100lbs, incredible. I'd be on the edge of my seat!

I have just reached a couple mini goals, and I have a couple more coming up soon. The first mini-goal was reached last week when I passed my half-way point for weight loss when I was at 93 pounds lost.

My next mini-goal only became a goal very recently. I try not to get fixated on minor milestones (like a 10 pound weight loss), but for some reason -- like many other people -- I get excited when I drop below another "decade". I had a mini-goal of 100 pound weight loss by the new year. However, my weight loss stalled at the end of the year because I was on vacation for a couple weeks. I was happy to maintain the weight given all of the obstacles that were presented trying to stay on plan while I was out of town. But because of this, my weight was hovering at just over 310 pounds for a few weeks. That was starting to bother me, and I had a burning desire to get below 310. Well, this week I decided to make an extra effort to lose and I really restricted the types of food I ate to kick-start my weight loss again. It paid off and I weighed in at 308 this morning. I know that its just a difference of a couple pounds, but for whatever reason the shedding of those two pounds and getting below 310 was like scratching a very bad itch!

My next mini-goal is the 100 pound weight loss, which will put me at about 305 pounds. The next mini-goal after that is getting below 300 lbs and into the 200s. That's actually a big one. For me, that's my "ONEderland" -- since my ultimate goal is 220. Its been a LONG time since I've been there.

Oh, wow to both epicskyline and joefla - how exciting to have both of you just a few lbs away from 100 lb losses. So incredible - looking forward to watching you both achieve that wonderful milestone!!

I want to be 214.8 by my birthday, which is April 1, then after that, I want to be in the overweight catagory, not the obese one, which means 204. Which I hope to hit before Memorial Day!

My next mini goal is to get back to overweight (184).

My mini goal is to lose 25lbs by 15 April. I made a bet with my brother :-) Or rather...at this point only 18 more pounds! 6 lbs a month, which should be doable!

elvislover324
01-11-2013, 04:15 PM
I am hoping to be 214 by 2/14. It is reachable if I stick to my plan of food and exercise, I think I can do it!!:val1::val1::val1:

Ideally I'd like to be to 250 in time for my trip to Puerto Rico in April. That's 46lbs in 11 wks which is high, but not unhealthy. And if I maintain my last 3 week average may be approximately possible. I sure plan to find out either way! It'd be nice to fit into vacation clothes, airplane seats and bathing suits!!

Here's to mini goals! |>---| (sparkling water, of course)

My first mini-goal is to lose the 30 pounds I gained between Thanksgiving and New Years. Yes, you read that correctly, 30 pounds! My second mini-goal is to get down to 344 which is what I weighed when I moved here 7 years ago. That will mean that I will have lost 50 pounds by then. No dates set, just get the weight off.

01-12-2013, 02:02 PM
My next big mini goal is to technically no longer be morbidly obese by April 1st (I'll be 215lbs). I have quite a lot to do until then, but I'm really lookong forward to it.

My next mini goal is to reach 10% which will at the same time get into one-derland, about 25 pounds to go.
I started after the birth of my son in May and got off track again until Labor Day, between Sept and Dec I excersized and continued to eat what I wanted and lost 45 inches over all but not a single pound! I finally gave in and started to eat right and now the weight is slipping off! So I am counting 237 as my starting weight from 1/1/13.

Same here. We're also both from MD and my not so little one was a May baby, too.

My first mini-goal is to lose 10% of my starting weight, which would put me at 244.8 - hoping to do it by valentine's day, but I'll be happy whenever it comes!

My next mini-goal is 127lbs which gets me into a normal category for my height. I don't know what I currently weigh because I'm on a scale break. Last time I was 129lbs.

IAmTheGlue
01-13-2013, 08:13 AM
My next minigoal is to be in the 250's followed by be in the 240's. I am hoping to reach my 250's goal by the end of next week. Right now I weigh less than I have since I had my 8 (almost 9) year old! Yes, nearly a decade of my life spent fat... I'm motivated now & the weight will come off.

My current mini goal is to reach Onederland.....which for me, a year ago, seemed like a far off dream. I was bad for about 5-6 months last year and fell off the diet bandwagon and ended up regaining about 30lbs. Nothing like re-losing the same weight :o But, I'm back on track and at my lowest and 100's here I come :carrot:

angieand2girls
01-13-2013, 01:08 PM
My current mini-goal is to reach 165.00 lbs. It's been 7 years since I was even at the weight I am right now, let alone 165.00 lbs. I want to take things nice and slowly at this point and rejoice with every pound lost. I'm hoping to be able to fit into some size 10's at that weight (which is my next size goal).

Lishar
01-13-2013, 02:00 PM
I am so close to my next mini goal of 215 which will be 50lbs lost for me. Then on to onederland. I have been over 200lbs Since my oldest daughter was born in 2003 so 10 years.

Hi everyone..It sounds like everyone is making great strides in their goals.. Great Job!!

My very first mini goal was to hit 299 and I did it today. Even though it's not a weigh in day I had to record it because I was so excited. My next mini goal is to lose a total of 25 pounds by February 14th. I'm in 2 challenges one on here, and one with my sisters and my Mom. So I hope that will give me enough umph to get it going and stay on track.

Good luck everyone.. Happy losing!!

My next goal is to hit 230, at which point I will have lost 25% of my starting body weight. It'll also be right around halfway to my goal, which is nice.

elvislover324
01-13-2013, 06:40 PM
I want to see 229 real soon...well, I guess all the "9"s, 229 219 209 and then finally 199!!

I haven't decided on an overall goal weight as I plan to do that when I am prancing around at 199 lol. Yes, I am really going to prance!!

01-14-2013, 02:12 PM
Okay, I have an additional mini goal.....I have a pair of jeans that I try on about every 10lb loss or so. I tried again and they are still way too snug, can barely get them up. So, I am hoping to get into those in the next month or two. I better lose a butt cheek first. :smug:

01-14-2013, 05:22 PM
I have a few...

Next one, first half a stone. I've lost 6lbs so far so hopefully this will fall into place soon! (Done! 21st Jan 2013, 8lbs gone :D)
After that, 1 stone / onederland! That'll be when I get to 198 :) and probably more exciting as I hope to see more of my clothes fitting!
Then, under 14 stone, so that works out at *thinks* 195. Two big milestones in short succession ;)
After that I want to get into my 34w firetrap trousers without looking like I've been squeezed through a sausage machine! (I know... ew). They're stretchy so I can get them ON, but I want to look good in them & be comfortable! I'd say that'd be round about... 180?
Next is 175 (BMI of 30 and my doc will put me back on the pill, no more being in agony for 25% of my life!)
Then 150. Just because it sounds good ;)

I think that's enough to keep me busy for now... 1lb more and I've ditched half a stone! w00t! Thanks for making this thread :D

I have two mini goals coming up - first is to be 186 by valentine's day, which will mean I won't be obese anymore :) I actually won't be obese when I hit 188 but I always aim two pounds lower to allow for day to day fluctuations. By valentine's day, I'll never be obese again!

The second is to be a solid size 14 by the 1st of April, when I go on holiday. I've just started being able to buy some 14's in dresses but definitely not pants yet, so hopefully I can make that happen!

Lindsayanne716
01-14-2013, 09:51 PM
My next goal is onederland and I hope to be there by mid March...15 pounds to go. Next, I am hoping to be 180 by June when i have to do a really tough physical challenge with my husband :S will be much easier being 35 lb lighter!!

01-14-2013, 10:12 PM
So, the only pair of jeans that fit are a size 19 long juniors. They have the fashion stress points, tears etc, dear dear hubs was driving and slid his hand into the one on my left knee....it's now about 6 inches long. There was one right at the pocket on the right butt cheek, I caught it on barbed wire this weekend and now, its about 4 inches long. Not sure if either of them are worth fixing. So, apparently, my next mini goal is to get into the next size down, so I can wear some jeans, since I refuse to buy anymore in 19.

My first mini-goal is to lose the 30 pounds I gained between Thanksgiving and Christmas -- I'm half way there! :)

My second mini-goal is to then lose another 20 to get down to the weight I was when I moved here 7 years ago.

With as much weight as I want to lose, I'll be rewarding myself lots and lots as I meet these mini-goals. :o

01-16-2013, 12:11 PM
right now, it's seeing a .2 drop on the scale to get into the 240s. Then 245 was a random goal I picked for Valentine's Day but I just crunched numbers and I really want it to be 244, which would be 5%. So hopefully by Valentine's Day but whenever, that will be a nice milestone to hit.

ChickieBoom
01-16-2013, 05:09 PM
My next goal is to get to 181. When I first started gaining weight I got up to 212 before I really tried to do something about it. I managed to lose 31 pounds before I gained it all back and kept on gaining. So passing 181 will feel like overcoming a hurdle I didn't accomplish in 2005.

kisskiss
01-16-2013, 05:23 PM
my mini-goal is to get to 179, which would put me in the "overweight" bmi, vs the obese.

so 18 pounds, and I'm hoping to lose them by spring break :)

01-16-2013, 06:08 PM
I'm 244.6 today. My first goal is to get out of the 240's. I hope to do it by the end of the first week in February. My second goal is to get back to 230, which is where I was before I gained back 20 pounds of the 40 I lost. I hope to do it by mid March. My third goal is to lose 35 pounds by the end of The Biggest Loser, which should be in late April. I've already lost 6.4.

01-16-2013, 11:38 PM
My next actual goal is 261, which is a loss of 10% of my starting weight. I am also looking with anticipation towards getting under 40 inches in the waist. I was at 49 when I started... I'm now at 44.
