Thank you for all the lovely, supportive comments on my last post! It means a lot to me, especially when I blog just to get things out, that people are there and willing to be so positive. Thank you, thank you!

To be clearer about my rambling...I'm not getting 'bogged down' by the large number anymore. I just needed to get that all out of my head and down on paper. Now that it is, it's not as intimidating, yay! What I found that worked for me in the past was (like you all suggested) to break a big number into smaller numbers and just focus on those. I also find it helpful to list monthly and weekly goals here as well.

Here we go.

7.1 pounds a month breaks down to 1.7 pounds a week. I think I can do that!

I've already written this in my last post but in an effort to have it all in one place, I'm going to cross post my weekly goals here as well. With my monthly goals, I've added my 'reward' for hitting the goal numbers out of 30 (ie 28/30 etc) right next to the goal. I've tried to keep this month's reward under ten bucks, and will be increasing the cost and 'quality' of the reward with the difficulty of the goals).

Goals for March 2014:
Log into Spark. Utilize site. (30/30: At home mini spa night-facial mask, exfoliation, pedicure).
Track all food. No matter what it is. No cheating! (28/30: Start a new knitting pattern, FOR ME)
No soda. (30/30: Try a drop in yoga class at COBRA studios).

March 9-15, 2014

Log into Spark and utilize the site. Every day.
Track everything I eat, no matter what it is.
Bring lunch from home instead of going to the cafeteria-it's too tempting down there!
Limit my *daily* DD iced coffee to 2x week.

If at the end of the week I'm down ANY number of pounds, I'm renting Catching Fire from RedBox and having a movie night. If I'm down 1.7 pounds, I'm going to rent the movie AND buy the next issue of HGTV Magazine. (Total cost: 5.00 not including tax).

    I've learned along this long road not to have a specific weight goal in mind but an life style program to stick to that is healthy, sane, specific and doable in my life.
