Bluejay suggested mini goals when I first joined the forum and I am one pound away now from meeting mine. Mini-goals work a treat! I hope to have lost two stone (28 pounds) from my starting weight before I go to a dance party on Saturday night. I hope I make it.
Then it's on to another mini-goal. I should have my signature on the same day as the party, so I am going to shoot for another 28lbs of loss.
