Today was my weekly weigh in and I am so happy to have reached a personal milestone. I am halfway to my initial goal of losing 30 pounds. I call it my "initial" goal because I didn't really put a lot of thought into it when I was setting it. I was thinking that I needed to lose AT LEAST 30 pounds, so I decided to start with 30 and re-evaluate once I lost it.
I am finding that setting mini goals (lose the first 5 pounds, then the first 10, drop 1 pants size, etc.) is helping me see progress and stay motivated. The end goal can seem so big and/or far away, that some days it is easy to lose sight of it, but breaking it down into smaller steps is helping me get there (one 30 minute walk at a time-LOL!).
I'm so motivated right now, I think I'm going to go for another walk! :)
