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!
