Weight Loss Goals

So, I wanted to share a bit more about my weight loss goals. I made (what I think to be) a very reasonable list of my goals. I really just want to be under 200 by the end of the year. Of course I plan to lose more after that, but for now, meeting this goal is what I'm focusing on. To get there, I would have to lose 6.5 pounds per month. Considering most say that a "healthy" weight loss rate is 1-2 pounds per week, I figured this plan would be just about right. When I made this list I weighed 259.2. Anyway, here is the breakdown of my goals:

End of March goal - 253.5

End of April goal - 247.0

End of May goal - 240.5

End of June goal - 234.0

End of July goal - 227.5

End of August goal - 221.0

End of September goal - 214.5

End of October goal - 208.0

End of November goal - 201.5

End of December goal - 195!!!

I'm already a bit ahead, which I am so incredibly excited about!!! Technically, I've already achieved my end of April goal and its only April 5th! I know that I probably won't be ahead of my goals throughout this whole process. I'm aware that weight drops off a lot faster towards the beginning of the diet. However, I will keep trying to meet or surpass my goals every month! I made a weight loss goals page at the end of my Erin Condren life planner to have a visual and bright reminder and I love the way it looks. (photo below) It's a great reminder as well as a motivator. I can't wait for the end of every month so I can fill in my weight loss!! 

By the way, when I purchased my life planner I was able to get $10 off by signing up on their website. I'm pretty sure they still have the same promotion for first time buyers!!

Good luck to everyone on a similar journey!! If you'd like to follow me on

  3. Hello,
    I wanted to tell you how encouraging your weight loss journey is that I was able to get started by using your idea that was posted on pinterest. I am keeping a weight lost journal for the first time and it started with the inside cover that was created with your weight loss goal sheet inspiration. I hope that is okay. You also encouraged me to start a blog as well, which was scary because I have no idea what I am doing ... hahaha.... but since I can talk talk talk... I figured I will get the hang of it soon. God Bless you young lady for this encouragement. You can do it.... WE CAN DO!!!!!

  4. It is only if you know what the main goals of weight loss success, more people will be healthy.
