Since I started Apr 13, 2013 with 191.5lbs, I will need to get down to 145lbs by Apr 12, 2014 - this is my ultimate goal.
Now if I just wait that to happen, I am sure most like it will not happen at all, so I break it down to smalls goals. I can achieve them along the way and monitor the whole process as well.
Here comes the breakdowns of my ultimate goal:
Q1 Apr - Jun (Start April 13): lose 16lbs -> 175lbs
Q2 Jul - Sep: lose 14lbs -> 162lbs
Q3 Oct - Dec: lose 10lbs -> 152lbs
Q4 Jan - April: lose 6lbs -> 146lbs
And one quarter is still a little long, so I take the 1st quarter to break it down further. Notice I am not going to break goals of other quarters yet, because there is a great chance that I will need to adjust them after the 1st quarter (either I do so very well or very poor)
Alright, Q1 Apr - Jun: lose 16lbs -> 175lbs with further breakdowns:
End of April: Lose 4 pounds -> 187lbs (as I started on 13th)
May: lose 6 pounds -> 181lbs
June: lose 6 pounds -> 175lbs
And now I check my weight every Saturday to assess the status comparing to my goals.
Above is my plan and now I want to listen to your suggestions. Not necessary to be something related to weight loss. If you have any great ideas for setting up goals and plans, would you please share them. Thank you in advance!
I appreciate your precious time to read my post!
