    Ugh - I've never been one to make goals, let alone rewards. But yes, post and you will see what so many people are striving for, it's very motivational.
    Get ready to go shopping - you WILL need new clothes

    one week leads to 2 weeks then before you know it... your 1st month is behind you and you are putting eating habits on automatic pilot.
    You're doing great.

    Do you have a reward in mind for yourself when you reach your 1st goal?

    Well, I reckon I'll keep it the way it is then. Before this week happened (the results, the support, the success stories here) I wouldn't have even thought the goal I have now would be attainable, much less thinking of reaching more. I'm actually thinking of changing my ultimate goal though. I feel like I may be able to do better than 150... but I'll give it a month or two and see how I feel then. I've only managed to succeed at one week so far.

    I agree 5-6lbs a month is more than reasonable to expect.

    I don't think you need to change your mini goal. If it comes off faster than that just set another goal. If you change your goal and it slows down you may be more disappointed. Good luck and keep up the good work.
    Keep on Keepin' on!

    Default Excited!! wk1-8lbs!! Mini goal advice??

    I am so excited! 8 whole lbs! Phentermine works so much better for me now that I've added healthy eating and working out! <-------DUH!! I never lost this much the first couple times I tried it. I don't care if all 8 lbs was water weight, it ain't on ME no more!

    Now I have to lose 14 lbs. by September 11th to reach my first mini goal. That gives me a whole 12 wks!! I didn't know it was going to come off so quick. Maybe I should change my mini goal?? What do you guys think?? Will it slow down enough to keep my mini goal the same?? Or should I push for something better??
