    Hello All,

    I've started a refreshers class having put it off from last month.

    I am setting myself some SMART goals and wondered if anyone wanted to share their own? Or how they went about coming up with them?

    Also I wondered what you all do to motivate and reward yourselves?

    Does anyone have an item of clothing in the size they want to reach or maybe do you have non-food related treats when you lose a certain amount??

    I've got two prada tops that 'say' they are size 12 but they're more like size 8. I've never been able to fit in them so i've hung them up on my wardrobe door to motivate me into fitting into them one day! =D

    Hmm the goal thing I found tricky, as much as this is about losing weight, for me it is about sorting out the wiring in my head and relating to myself and food differently.

    However I've recently been looking out for things I'd like to wear but haven't been able too, so I've got a copy of the bravissimo calender and been having a look at the wrap dresses, also the vest tops with inbuilt bras.

    I have fitness goals, my plan is to be able to cycle to work and home (about 3 miles each way) by the summer (july/august ish). I'll be starting cycling around easter and am getting a loan of a really good exercise back from weekend to start getting more exercise.

    I do have enormous thighs (message to fat, please vacate my thighs!) so I would love to wear proper trousers...

    I have a few things I am doing.....

    For every half a stone i loose, I am giving myself 3 hours out of the house without the kids!!

    I have bought a really lovely dress (completely different to what I would usually wear) from River Island. It goes on and does up, but it is supposed to be floaty not tight, so it is my incentive dress!!

    also, when I get to target, I am going to get an eternity ring. (i have done it arse about face, i am engaged and getting married next year, but this seems to fit just as well!!) it will be white gold with 10 emeralds set in it to represent each stone i have lost. It will remind me that this weight loss will be for eternity, and not just for xmas ;-)

    Good for you Mel,
    I look a my eternity ring my OH bought me with 12 little diamonds for my stones lost, every day. It's our secret reminder of what I've achieved and helps me keep the weight off.
    I'm sure yours will work like that too.
    Now i'm considering how to mark each year of maintenance.
    I feel a new piece of jewellery coming on!:D

    I've got a jumper I love, its about a 12 and I want to fit in to that.

    I want to go to Camden Lock and buy an item of clothing (I can never fit in to anything I see).

    I will get a tattoo when I reach goal with the number of stones/lbs I've lost. A constant reminder of what I've done.

    I've also been considering getting a tattoo for ages and i was going to have it on the back of my neck (i thought there was no-point having it anywhere else seen as i would never end up showing it) but now i've decided im going to wait until my target and have it on my thigh. Hopefully when im thin i wont mind showing it off! XD
