Default What should my next mini-goal be?

This is getting exciting. I am 15lbs away from my next mini-goal of 225lbs.

So far I have been setting my mini-goals as 2 stone reductions (28lbs).

But what should I set as the one after that?

Too many choices. So I'll let you decide.

Please vote!

I picked onederland too! I am going to party my butt off the day I hit onederland, hopefully all the dancing will take me to 198. The party won't start til I stop crying though, it's an incredible achievement for all of us.

BTW Ian, I love all your threads even if I don't comment on them. You have a great sense of humor and crack me up. And...you are so rocking this weightloss thing, congrats!

Definitely onederland. That's a huge goal around here, might as well celebrate it!

Yup - I agree with onderland. Looking at that scale and seeing a 1 for the first digit will be awesome.

I say go for one-derland. It seems to be a rite of passage here, so might as well make it a thing.

Well, I think we have a winner. By complete consensus my next mini-goal after I hit 225lbs (hopefully in a week or two) will be ONE-DERLAND!

Thanks for voting and keep watching my ticker!

The road to onederland sux, just as a warning.

I feel like I got to the gate and got the hand in the face to stop.

I'm still angry about it today in case you can't tell!!

I am the odd one out; "no longer obese" Why stop at onerland when you can have such a huge step from being obese to mere overweight at your hands!!??

My weighloss journey started when I hit obese category. It was an eye opener for me. I had lied to myself that "I am not that big"... once the BMI registered obese, I stopped kidding myself. -- That is why I voted for no longer obese, it is close to my heart

That's true, sum38, but he can meet that goal probably the same week so he can have a double celebration!! Like Ian needs a reason to have another beer, right?

Thanks guys. Beer is part of my diet and a tool I use for it. So, yes, I will have a celebratory beer on both occassions.

I will also have a beer when there is nothing to celebrate.

Some people do Medifast, some do yoga, some do cardio, some watch their calories.

I drink beer (and do IF and eat portion-controlled salads).

I didn't mean any harm, I promise!! I'm jealous you have beer in your diet, I'd give my right arm for one right now!! But I'm so much better without it. I have no control around certain foods and alcohol is part of those foods.

Thanks Elvis and it is not for everyone.

Beer is special like that

Plus, it means more for me!

I really dislike beer (plus I have celiac disease), but if I could incorporate wine into my diet....
