Default Mini Goal for 9/15/11

I'd like to get to 179lbs. This would put me officially out of the obese BMI range and into the overweight BMI range. I have to start somewhere, right?

I think that's an AWESOME goal!



I will join you on the August 15th goal (though not quite at that weight yet. I would like to be at 192 (currently 197). This is a stretch over my 1-2 lbs a week, but not too much of a stretch!

Excellent! Getting out of the obese BMI range is such a huge deal, you must be so excited being so close!

Personally, I'd like to be under 250 by August 15. Things look so much better from the other side of that number!

Good luck kelly! Losing 4 lbs seems like climbing a mountain, but we can do it!

kelly315 - congratulations on achieving your goal!

eliz - how is your progress going?

I am not making any headway yet...the scale is stuck on 183 and it ain't moving! It's frustrating...but, I still have some more time to make my goal.

I am going to try to stick with drinking only water this weekend instead of diet beverages. Maybe that little change will help move the scale backwards....

Thanks! Two more pounds to go. Can I make it by 8/15? Not sure. These pounds seem welded onto my thighs (and everywhere else!).

guacamole- thanks! It's my first month back OP, so I guess it's expected that it would come off a bit easily. Not that I haven't been working my butt off (literally)!

Go Go Go! I'm cheering you on because I'm at the same point you are! Maybe I can tag along and do it too!

Well...unfortunately I didn't make my goal. Not only that, but I went on vacation and gained 2 lbs instead! Needless to say, I am not feeling good about this development.

I want to make 9/15 my new goal for getting to 179lbs, although I am feeling less optimistic that I will reach it since my first mini-goal failure. Maybe with my kids back at school, no vacations or unusual events coming up, I will be able to reach my goal successfully this time. The summer is so volatile in terms of schedule and routine.

It's OKAY don't beat yourself up, I gained 1lb at my weigh-in last week and I feel terrible, how about making a new mini-goal date??? I'll join you in the challenge =)

Thanks, BadBBW (love the name!). Since my kids don't start school until 9/1, maybe 9/15 is overly optimistic to lose 4-5 lbs. I tend to lose very slowly. Maybe 9/30/11 to get to 179? Just not feeling very confident...
