Every five pounds is/was a mini goal, with every ten pounds being a bigger one. I didn't reward myself for any of them, but it did mean that I could mark it down on my chart.

I just hit my biggest mini goal, reaching a healthy weight and my original goal!

See my signature. I didn't really focus on having mini-goals at first, but then I actually started making progress. Making progress seems to be enough to keep me going now, but I wanted to put down some rewards to make sure I stay motivated and keep things interesting. I just hope that I actually have the money to reward myself when I make them!

I haven't had a lot of mini-goals thus far, but my next one will be hitting 205 which will be my half-way point. The reward: a new haircut & style. I currently have long layered hair and I'm going to do a long shaggy bob. Although lately it seems I have been sabatoging myself. Hopefully soon I can be there!

After that it will be onederland!!!!

I think then I will go in 10 pound increments. Not sure what the rewards will be yet

My mini goals are in my signature. Basically every 10% with a 15% mini goal to tide me over until 20%. I never had mini goals before and it makes everything more exciting. I like it =)

My mini-goals are in my signature too. I really just have a healthy BMI (155lbs) left!

I do have some non-weight related goals too:

- Do a pull-up
- Deadlift my body weight (on hold for the moment due to an injury)
- 28" waist
- An original goal was to hit a 40" bust and hips, I've done that so now I dropped those to 38"

I don't really have any rewards that I've done. I'Ve boughten clothes as needed and I know I'll need an entire new wardrobe when I get to goal. As is I don't have any "skinny" clothes left, so if I don't buy new clothes as needed I just have to wear clothes that are way too big for me.

I have mini goals every 10-15lbs. Right now I'm 9lbs away from my first (275). Than my second will be 15lbs away (260). I plan on getting new tall winter boots for my first but I need those anyways in newfoundland unless I want to be bambi. But at my second goal I will buy a new wardrobe and makeup wardrobe because at that point I will be down 75lbs and haven't had any new clothes since my biggest weight and they are all tatty and fully of holes. I know you shouldn't buy alot of clothes while you're losing weight but I don't have a choice really, belts can't even save me now. the third goal after that I will get a nose ring (250) and 4th one my ears pierced (240). the others are still up in the air.

Hehe - I have lots and lots of mini-goals. They help me remember that I'm making progress.

SV goals:

- Numbers ending in 0 and 5 (240's coming up next!)
- Significant (to me) fractions of my weight lost
- every 5 and 10 lbs lost
- every 2.5% of my highest weight lost
- every 5 BMI points lost
- meeting BMI benchmarks (no longer morbidly obese, no longer obese, etc.)
- getting to Onederland
- losing more than I have in any previous weight loss attempt
- getting to my lowest adult weight

NSV goals:

- Smaller measurements
- Smaller clothing sizes
- Various social and fitness accomplishments

I do assign rewards to my goals, but they tend to be relatively inexpensive and/or things that I need/really want anyway, and are subject to change without notice. I tend to be one of those people who puts off buying things, so it's a nice chance to get stuff I could really use and provides a tangible reminder of the progress I'm making that I don't always see in myself.

Nope, they don't carry anything remotely close to my size.

However, I have a HUGE list of bra wants when I hit my goal:
T-Shirt Bra
2x Sports Bras
Bikini
One Piece Sports Swim Suit
Strapless, long line bra
Strapless bra
Soft Cup bra
Some general pretty bras

Honestly the last time I went there they annoyed me so much that I'll never set foot in the store again unless my friends drag me there.

It's not a good idea to try to squeeze someone into a bra because "this is the biggest size we have." Way to make someone feel like a freak.

As a 36D/DD regardless of weight, victoria's secret doesn't have much to offer me.

I've been able to shop there even at my highest weight. I guess I have small boobs. But I can't wait to get some underclothes that make me feel sexy. I've never ever felt like that.

I have lots of mini-goals too. Every 10 lbs is a big mini-goal, while every 5 lbs and every time I reach a new decade are littler ones. Which means I get to celebrate 3 times per 10 lb increment Oh, and reaching a normal BMI is a big goal of mine as well. I donít have rewards for any of my goals since losing weight is the biggest reward I could think of, but Iíll be buying some new clothes in the boxing day sales since I donít have much that I fit into anymore

When I get to goal, Iíll get a big shopping spree and will definitely be getting some sexy underthings. Not sure if Iíll go to Victoriaís Secret, but Iíll probably check their stuff out since Iíve never had any problems there (although I was always buying undies, so I never had the bra fit issuesÖ).

My first mini-goal is to be under 190-- can't remember the last time! I'll probably reward myself with shoes too (I love the ones you have picked out! They're fabulous!). Honestly my ultimate goal I have has nothing to do with what I weight-- I just want to be a single-digit size! When that happens I will be rewarding myself with an entirely new wardrobe of GAP jeans and perhaps a nice dress from topshop or modcloth!

Oh man I can't wait to wear a size 36C bra. That will be heavenly. And a size 8 jean. And this guy I'm seeing, I want him to be able to pick me up. Right now I just need to think about ONEderland, and being no longer obese at 195. I can't believe I'm still obese for another 7 pounds. UGGHH

I need to find a reward because it's going to be a big one.
