So, do you set scale goals?
Yes, goals, but not the timeline to acheive the goal.
They are in my signature.

I think I will get a bracelet or a charm or some piece of jewelry then. I think short term goals are important becuz they tell you "good job! keep going!" and I have a long way to go still. For me looking only at the big pic i sometimes overwhelming so the goals help me focus on little pieces of weight loss
Your coach couldn't move
a decimal point?
268 x .1= 26.8
10% is the easy calculation.
Instead, she rounded "up" almost 5 lbs!
Goodness. We really DO need this forum, don't we?!?
Moral: don't rely on coaches! LOL
(I'm a teacher and I'm very embarrassed for the education programs in this country!)
I'm with you, tho. I'll need my coach after P1 BIGTIME!
(and she does mental math WAY better than me!) LOL
