New Goals

My goals have changed as I have lost weight. Now, I find myself setting new goals to stay motivated. I have noticed that it is better for me to set smaller, more practical "benchmark" goals in addition to the "big picture" goal.

  • Old goals
    • Wear a bikini for once in my life (NEVER going to happen without some major surgery)
    • Wear heels on a daily basis (Done- when the streets aren't snow covered!)
      • Wear a size Large (Done)
      • Buy an article of designer clothing, not an accessory (Done)
      • Try kayaking (Done)
      • No longer be classified as obese (Done!)
      • Get down to Goal Weight: -77 lbs from heaviest
        • I'm almost there and realize that I have more to go!

      • New Goals
        • Go indoor rock climbing
        • Rock a pair of skinny jeans
        • Lower my blood pressure
        • Find leather boots that fit over my calves
        • Be able to run/jog a 5K without stopping
        • Get into single digit sizes
        • Lose 100 pounds overall
        • Have the Wii Fit tell me I'm "normal"
