On Monday, I received a "save the date" for a wedding taking place in March, 2013. I'm really excited for the couple, and I must admit that I've been looking forward to this event for quite a long time =)
Soooo, even though I'm a chicken when it comes to goal setting, I'm considering setting a weight loss goal between now and the joyous occasion. The goal will be to lose 40 lbs by the wedding (end of March). Even though I'm not in the wedding, I think the event will be a good way for me to get re-motivated, and give myself something to look forward to.
After doing the math, I will have to lose roughly 10 lbs a month. Definitely a challenge, but I think I can get pretty close if I put forth my best effort.
Has anyone ever set a weight loss goal that was centered around an event? Was it a good form of motivation? Did you keep the weight off?
