Remembering my goals

Are you like me? Do you set goals, get excited and then just plain forget when it comes down to making good choices? A few weeks ago or so I talked up a storm about going to Chicago for Christmas and how excited I was and how I wanted to go shopping and buy some fancy stuff and wear hats and go to a play and all those old timey things that I love. I talked about really wanting to be thin enough to shop at some regular stores and not have to shop at all the plus size section. I really want that this Christmas. That's the gift I want to give to myself. Why then do I seem to forget so easily that that's part of what I'm working for?

Yesterday I had to return a top at the mall and I stopped in at Macy's. They were setting up their X-mas decorations and it hit me that uh...hello, it's right around the corner and this weight isn't going to lose itself! Not only that, but I turn 30 on Nov 29th and I want to feel great for that too. Why do I seem to forget my goals so quickly? I feel like sometimes I just plain forget about the life I deserve to have.

Do you?

  1. are your goals written down somewhere? posted on the fridge? post-it on your monitor - put them somewhere you SEE them every day...remind yourself what you're working towards. I can make all the mental goals I want...but with everything else I ask my brain to remember, it's no wonder my "goal list" gets shuffled to the bottom.

    Good luck!

  3. Yep, I can definitely relate. I am well intentioned when I set my goals but seem to quickly forget them- that is why blogging helps keep me on track- I'm consistantly keeping my goals in front of me.

  5. All of the time. I wanted to be 1XX for my birthday, but then I went on a bit of a bender and used food to comfort me and work as an excuse to not go to the gym. But we have to get back on track and make new charts!
