Mini-Goals - A little disappointed

View Full Version : A little disappointed

02-21-2013, 08:14 AM
I set my first mini goal to loose 10 lbs by Valentines Day, and last week I missed it by .5 lbs. I was so close and feeling good about what I had last. I weighed today, which is my normal day to weigh, and I have lost 2.8 lbs this week! I am beside myself! I only wish I knew how I lost so much this week. So now I have met my first mini goal. 2 more pounds to longer be obese and 4 to get into the 180's. YEAH!!!!!

Good for you! I have always struggled with sticking with the plan if I don't meet a goal or don't seem to lose as fast as I think I should or the sun isn't shining (just about any excuse used to drive me off plan!!! :)) It really shows a lot of commitment to be disappointed and stick with it.

Sometimes it's just water- a little too much salt somewhere... In any case, congratulations!

Our bodies seem to trick us, one week giving us what we want the next not. I think it's a bit of a mystery, we know the basics and with that in mind will eventually reach our goals if we keep at it. I know I have had weeks where I am super strict about food and deligent about exercise and lose nearly nothing then weeks where I indulge more than I should and skip my workouts a couple days and bam I have a loss. Good thing i dont take that as a green light to continue cheating. Anyway congrats on hitting your mini goal! That's awesome

Sounds to me like it was probably just water retention. You made your goal and that's what is important. I bet your DH (Dear Hubby) enjoyed spending Valentine's Day with a new smaller you!!! Congrats on the loss.

Well done on the loss. Don't beat yourself up about achieving your mission a few days later. Celebrate that you stuck to it and won!
