Goals For My Weight Loss Journey

I've been a member of Weight Watchers since May, 2011. I have had some success in losing weight, but I'm not happy where I am in this stage of the game. I've met some great people at my meetings and I'm thankful for all the support that I have from my family and friends. I've been lax in setting goals and I realize that I haven't had anything specific to reach for. I have eight weeks of weigh-ins until the end of the year and have set five goals to meet by that time.

My Goals to meet by December 31, 2011 are:

1. Every day, I will track what I eat. Our WW leader challenged us last night to track every day. As incentive, we will be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift card at the end of the month.

2. I will meet the recommended Good Health Guidelines by drinking enough liquid, getting my healthy oils in and taking a multivitamin.

3. I will choose to eat Power Foods such as fruits, veggies, whole grains and low-fat dairy.

4. I will participate in a 5K. My WW buddies and I decided that we need to have something to work toward in getting in our activity. Another WW leader shared with us that she always registered for a 5K to help her stay motivated to exercise. We are following her example and looking for a 5K to participate in.

5. I will lose 10% of my body weight by my weigh-in On December 27. That means I have to lose 2 lbs a week.

I believe that as I meet these five goals I will have success and feel better!

Let me hear from you...what goals have you set for yourself?

Enjoying my life...

Excellent goals. They are very specific and reasonable. I've had great success with Weight Watchers in the past ... but my problem is that once I meet my weight loss goal, I backslide and then eventually have to start all over again. I do think the key is to try and make good choices every day, all day. Best of luck with your weight loss journey!
