Weight goals

I have gone too long with no weight progress. I think I needed the break, but it is time to get moving again.

I did what I have done dozens of times before -- set up a new Excel spreadsheet with some weight goals and all kinds of formulas. Maybe you have done it too. This time, though, I set a goal for this week. I kept that number in mind as I went through my week. I made decisions based on that weekly goal.  And it worked. I lost more than I had hoped -- my goal was to lose 1.3 pounds, and I lost double that. It's a good start.

My goal for next week is to lose just 1 pound.  I'm going to keep that goal in mind as I go through the next week.  If I can average just a pound a week loss, I can finally make my weight goal this summer.


  1. That's a great strategy! Nice work Jen :)

    1. It seems obvious -- of course you don't just set goals, you actually work toward them. But it hasn't always been obvious for me, I guess!
