S/C/G: 237/237/???

Height: 5'8"

Default 3 weeks goal and 3 day mini goal --- 8/31

I need a place to record my goals because the last weeks have shown that I don't do anything to get to my goals if they just stay in my head. I really need some public accountability. I think goals for kinda short times will work better for me that goals that take until Christmas to make, at least right now. So every 3 weeks, I am going to set a goal for myself and every 3 days I will set a minigoal. This thread is for the first 3 weeks.

If this sounds like something that might help you, please feel free to post on here, too. Maybe we can help each other meet our big goals, 3 weeks at a time!

So, my 3 week goal starting 8/31/09 is to lose 5 pounds. That is more than 1 pound a week but less than 2, so it doesn't sound totally impossilbe.

My minigoal for the next 3 days is to eat perfectly on plan. Right now that means eating only foods on my good food list and eating 1800 calories or less. I got that number from the calorie calculator at the daily plate for losing 1.5 pounds a week.

Thanks!

Ok, eating on plan every day has to be a constant goal. But I am going to add a different thing to it ever 3 days. My new 3 day minigoal starting tomorrow will be to make one dish completely new to me every day for dinner. It can be a side dish or the entree.

Sounds like you're doing excellent with the public accountability - that's a big reason I joined 3FC as well. I'll jump in with my own 3 week goal of exercising 5 days a week for the next 3 weeks. Thanks for the motivation!
