Everybody needs a goal...

I was noticed! Hooray! My good friend Sara at work today asked me if I was on a diet because she noticed that I was looking thinner. She’s such a sweetheart and totally made my day. I’ve been keeping my weight loss attempt this time to myself for the most part. I’ve only really told my husband and my mom so far. I don’t know why, I guess I was just a little embarrassed to be trying AGAIN to lose the pounds.

Thanks for the encouragement on the last post too. I know I shouldn’t be so hard on myself. Continuous Changes was right, she said “It's harder to build yourself up when you are the first person to tear yourself down!!” So I’m taking this advice to heart. I am going to try not to beat myself up for my mistakes. And I am going to try to reinforce good behavior with a reward system for meeting little goals. This way I have something to look forward to and motivate me along the way.

So here’s the list-

5 pounds gone – New earrings
10 pounds gone- Trip to the Almay make-up counter
15 pounds gone- Manicure
20 pounds gone- Cute new sundress
25 pounds gone- New strappy sandals
30 pounds gone- Shorts (hate wearing b/c my knees are so fat.)
35 pounds gone- Bathing Suit
40 pounds gone- Sexy underwear
45 pounds gone- New jeans
50 pounds gone- Shopping spree!

I’m only a little more than one pound away from those new earrings. I can’t wait to go shopping!


  1. Awesome goals! I tried keeping my weight loss thing to myself but apparently I am a blabber mouth because now everyone knows. Oh well, I think it will keep me accountable this time!

  2. Hi!

    Goals are SO important! They keep us focused! Without a goal, we are, like a boat, rudderless!

    Say, have you read the book "Thin Within?" It's excellent. :) Good luck!!!

  3. I have not read that book! But thanks for the reccomendation...
