10% Solution

Lose 10% of my body weight.

Current weight = 138

10% – 13.8

Goal weight = 125

I can do this.

Not to focus so much on numbers…because what really matters is how you feel — but I read an article from Spark People today about the 10% Solution.

It talked about how people who set out to lose weight often have unrealistic goals — and set themselves up for failure — sound familiar?

My most successful periods of weight loss have been when I have set small obtainable goals — 5 pounds here — 5 pounds there.

Unfortunately, lately I have been focusing on how much weight I have gained — but what I should be focusing is on how much weight I have lost.

My heaviest weight = 168 pounds

Current weight = 138 pounds

I have maintained a 30 pound weight loss over the past four years.

That is pretty impressive.

My weight loss goal – lose 10% of my current weight.

Here I go…
