New Goals

Well it is time I make some new weight goals and get back on track. I am about 8.5 weeks away from when I first started my journey a year ago. July 5, 2011 is when I started my weight loss journey and I am down 80 pounds. 

My goals have kept changing along the way. I think my first goal was just to lose 20 pounds. Then I started going for 40 and the goals continued.  When I got to 80 pounds I thought WOW I am so close to 100 I gotta keep going. Well I am going to try my darnest to make the 100 pound weight loss goal by July 5, 2012. 

I am going to toot my own horn for a minute. I have been through a lot in the past year physically and emotionally. I have had 4 miscarriages, lots of stress at work and just every day life. Even through all that I lost 80 pounds.  I have fallen off the wagon numerous times, but I have gotten back on each and every time. It was HARD work, but SOOOO worth it! I honestly can't believe I have accomplished so much in one year. 

One of my goals was to be able to walk into almost any store and buy clothes. I can finally do that! I have had to retrain my brain that I no longer have to go to the plus size clothing. It feels nice to walk into Gap and buy a large shirt or a pair of skinny pants. 

It is time to make some new goals.  Of course with new goals comes rewards! =)

I am going to work on 10 pounds at a time. 

10 pounds = 90 pounds
My reward will be a Victoria Secret Pink Sweatshirt! I have wanted one of those zip up hoodies so bad! Well now I can finally fit into them and I deserve one!!

Next 10 pounds = 100 pounds
My reward is going to be something from Lululemon. I have wanted some work out clothes from there and I decided when I reach my 100 pound mark that is my reward. I can't think of a better reward them work out clothes to keep me working out. lol

If I make my 100 pound goal by July 5 instead of Lululemon I will buy myself the Tony Burch Reva flats I have been googling over for ages! These shoes are pretty penny! I think this might just be the inspiration I need to kick my butt in gear BIG time!  

I want to run a 5K before July 4th. I want to accomplish my goal of running a 5K prior to making the 1 year mark. If I accomplish this goal my reward will be the Gap forever skinny black pants I want so bad. 

I have the carrot dangling in front of the mules eyes! As you can see what inspires me are clothes and shoes. lol

Do you have goals and rewards set for yourself?
