    Day 6 and need to set some goals!

    It's day 6 for me today and so far I've managed to be 100%.

    I've got such a long road ahead of me (at least 6 stone, then i'll review). My end goal is my holiday in August and feeling more confident in a swimming costume . As that seems so far away I thought it might be a good idea to set some additional goals along the way as motivation.

    I would welcome any suggestions as to the mini goals?

    Well done for getting to day 6! The hardest bit is over.
    Why not break it into 7lb chunks, or getting into each new stone bracket? Or any other personal weight goals-for me it's getting to the lowest adult weight I can remember x good luck x
    Have just noticed you've got your goals listed in your sig x

    Sounds childish but been thinking about making a sticker chart haha! Use to love getting a star in school ha! Perhaps putting my start weight down and my goal for my planned break then every half stone put a sticker on or prehaps at the end of every week sort of like a count down!
    Then setting up a new one after that hol for my final
    Countdown to august!
    Thing that worries me doing it every 7lbs is this week five and I've had to come off plan unexpectedly due to illness and the tablets I've been given have citric acid in etc so I know that next week I would have put on weight... But then maybe a big red cross through a sticker or two is a reminder of what can happen :/ hmmmm x

    I used mini goals extensively throughout my weight loss journey and found it to be a really rewarding thing to do. Whever I was within a stone of any of my weight loss goals I would update how far away I was each week too - it really helped to keep me motivated. Here are my goals (I still use them for fitness):

    Goals Achieved : off diabetes meds / 1 stone / only obese! / 10% off / wedding ring fits again! / size 22 / 2 stone / weight when I started WW / 25% of the way there / <100lbs to go / 3 stone / size 20 / 50 lbs lost / weigh less than 100kg / weigh less than husband for first time ever! / 4 stone / size 18 / half way there / lightest in adult life (after WW) / 5 stone / weigh < 200 lbs / size 16 / wear knee high boots / 6 stone / only overweight! / size 14 / wear hotel robe / wear knee high boots with jeans tucked in! / 7 stone / 100 lbs lost! / 75% of the way there / In a Karen Millen dress / size 12 / 8 stone / bmi <= 25 / some size 10 / 9 stone / comfortable size 10 / final goal!!! / be able to hold the plank position (feet/elbows) for 30 secs / be able to hold the plank position (feet/elbows) for 45 secs / be able to do a sit up / be able to hold the plank position (feet/elbows) for 1 min / be able to hold the plank position (feet/hands) for 1 min / run at 11 km/hr for 8 intervals of 30 secs each with 30 secs 'rest' / to be able to do a sit up without anyone holding my feet or using weights to help

    Goals to Achieve: run at 11 km/hr for 8 intervals of 1 min each with 1 min 'rest' / run at 11 km/hr for 8 intervals of 1 min each with 30 secs 'rest'

    Hi littlemisscadbury Well done on being so disciplined I wish I had your willpower! I have a lot to lose so I'm just taking it one stone at a time. I break each stone into mini goals. My start weight was 16.3 so my first goal was to get into the 15s (-4lbs) then get to half a stone (-7 lbs) then get down a dress size (-10 lbs) and then my first stone (-14 lbs) It just seems a bit more achievable then. Best of luck with it all xx

    I'm not really a chart person, I like them but don't want to put it up in my bedroom, it'd ruin my colour scheme haha I love updating tickers though! You could create something quite similar in your signature really, 12 black 7s for every half stone that you want to lose, each time you hit one, change it to a different colour, your favourite colour maybe.

    My big goal is the same as yours, a holiday in August. It'll be me and my boyfriend's first 'proper' holiday, other than a 3 day trip to Amsterdam for my birthday last year. So that's my big motivation really and that's what I'm keeping as my end goal. I've not set myself mini goals but each week I'm putting however much I lose into a big pot, along with whatever loose change I have. When I get to goal, I'm going to use the money in there to treat myself to something. Maybe new clothes, maybe things for our holiday, a spa day or maybe a kindle. Currently undecided!

    Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
    Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off of the goal.
    We would accomplish more things if we did not think of them as impossible.
