Still no goals! 


So I have been thinking about goals to set myself. I never thought of myself as being a particularly unimaginative person but my failure in this area is forcing me to reconsider. 

The issue is that I want to pick goals that are for me. If I start saying “when I get to x weight Dan and I are going away” then I’m including him in the saga and it’s hardly fair to deny him a holiday because I can’t resist a cupcake. 

I don’t want goals that are financially motivated either. If I start rewarding myself with cash prizes or bags for resisting the cupcakes (I have a real thing for bags!) it’s not so much motivation as it is a bribe!

Obviously I have an ultimate weight loss goal and I have a long term motivator, I just feel like if it’s going to take 2 years I want to break it down into some milestones. Not just weight milestones either – I want a reward along with those weight milestones to look forward to, but what?! 

I shall continue to ponder this. In the mean time, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! 

Much love,

    My goals used to be always linked to food, ie lose 10lb and have chocolate. Then I didn’t lose weight, had the chocolate anyway, got frustrated, ate more and it started again!! The SW people online suggest things like a new lipstick, treating yourself to a manicure etc..I have hung up a pair of trousers that I want to get back into and every few weeks I plan on trying them on. Have you got a favorite outfit you can’t get into but want to as that’s a good goal!

    I like the trouser plan – I think I might have to adapt it though to tops. I’m not so bothered about the trousers as I live in smart black trousers and jeans.

    The joys of office work!
