My overall goal when I joined Nutrisystem was to lose 100 lbs. I’ll be honest — when I started, I didn’t know if that was even an obtainable goal. Every time I’ve tried to diet in the past, I didn’t do so well.
With Nutrisystem, I was given the tools to succeed, and one of the recommendations we were given was to make minigoals. Yes, that 100 lbs would be great. However, I (and you) need something that is little closer at in grasp. So, I am actually going to reveal my minigoals to you all. For me, that is incredibly hard to do. In my warped brain, if I tell people my minigoal and don’t achieve it, then I’ve failed. Except I know that I haven’t, but my fat brain hasn’t figured that out yet. (And I call my brain the fat brain because even with everyone telling me how much weight it looks like I lost, I don’t see it!).
So with sweaty hands as I type this, here are my minigoals that I set up for myself:
- Lose 25 lbs.
- Lose 50 lbs.
- Lose 75 lbs.
- Get below 200 lbs.
- Get out of Plus Size Clothes
Here’s a little video I made letting you know what goal I beat!
As you can see, I’ve hit my first mini goal. It took me 9 weeks to lose 25 lbs. Now, that 25 lbs was no where near as daunting as 100 lbs or even 50 lbs. That is what this is all about. I can celebrate that I lost 25 lbs. That makes me proud to tell people.
When you lose weight, do you set minigoals? What minigoals do you set for yourself? Any minigoals I should add to my list?
THIS WEEKS WEIGHT LOSS: 1.4
TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS: 25
