For me, it's all about the mini goals. I even set a mini-mini goal. What I have done is set my main goal of 170lb, or 97 lost, with no timeframe. My mini goal is to be under 230 by August....I'm so close. Then my mini-mini goal, this one is always on hand. The way that it goes is, when I was over 250, I decided that being under 250 would be awesome. Once I hit 249, that goal changed to 239....and so on and so forth. Since I have my goal to reach under 230 by August, I guess there is a time frame for that one. My only real reason for the timeframe is for a wedding, the first week in August. When that is all said and done I will set another mini goal just to keep me on track.
How I celebrate my success??? Definitely shopping of some kind. Since I am a shoe fanatic, and losing weight doesn't affect that size for me, I tend to stick with shoes. But it could be anything. I have to buy a couple of pairs of pants soon though, but I really don't want a lot of clothes in my closet that are just going to be big on me by the time I hit Phase 3.
The big thing that I will be getting August, if I hit goal, is an MP3 player. I have been bugging my hubby for months for one of these. He finally found one to get me, but they were out of stock. So, I figured what I will do is make it a prize. I'm so very close to goal, so I know that I will get it. But I will continue to work for it.
