Hit another goal...:)

This weekend I hit one of my mini-goals.. got into some white capris I bought two years ago, never wore and soon 'outgrew'... Only took 6 weeks! :0

The mini-goals seem to really be working for me. I will switch things up.

I hope to weigh every day for the rest of my life, per Fly Lady, not to obsess, but to know my body and see trends. So the clothes are a nice mini goal to keep me from obsessing about the pound numbers. Plus it is fun to try the pants on every week and have them be just a smidgeon looser.

My new mini-goal are some brand new jeans that have been sitting folded in my closet very quietly for about 3 years.

Hope I am not boring you all with these goals... it is nice to finally make some progress after literally years of frustration and trying. :0

You look super - I know you'll get into those jeans!!

I have been weighing daily (except when I'm away from home). You're right, it's very nice for starting to see patterns. I didn't know Flylady did it, but I did read some studies that show that maintenance goes better with a daily weigh-in (I know it doesn't work for everyone, but since it seems to work for me I was glad to see the validation).

Sorry about that deleted comment above; I accidentally double-posted.

Daily weigh in make me neurotic !! :-)
I weigh in weekly and adapt my diet/workouts accordingly....

I like it that we each find what works for us....

Just finally making time to check out this great blog! I need some encouragement--I'm struggling with my weight loss/exercise goals--the haagen daaz is calling but I am persevering!
Cindy, you look great--I like setting mini goals, too--I think that will help me out of my slump!

Cindy said...

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Yes, I like the mini goals, too. It is nice to have small rewards and also takes the pressure off of just 'losing weight'. I am trying to get healthier so having the daily goals of working out, eating right, vitamins, water, etc, keep it do able.
