My ultimate goal is to get back down to 130 lbs.  But when I set that as my goal, it seemed impossibly far away.  In fact it seemed so far away that I never made any real progress towards getting there.  Answer?  I made the goal more accessible.  My new goal was to lose 8 lbs by March 4, 2010.  I weighed 148.6 lbs when I started this program and after my fist weigh in I am down to to 147.2.  It's so motivating to feel like the goal I've set is actually acheivable  that last night at the cookout I attended (death to any diet plan) I was able to watch my portions and only went 200 calories over.  1600 vs 1400.  I always thought having an ultimate goal was the most important thing but now I realize that I need stepping stones to put that ultimate goal into reasonable perspective.
