Setting milestone goals has been a great way for me to stay motivated with weight loss.
My next "milestone" is a little different. I'm setting it for 190 pounds. I know, that's only 9 more pounds, so it isn't much of a long term goal, but it does mark the point where I will have lost 50% of my body weight.
To make it just a little more complicated, I'm going to try to achieve this number in no less than 5 weeks. Longer is okay, but I need to slow my weight loss down a little bit, as my rapid weight loss has come at the cost of some muscle mass, which is something I don't need during triathlon season.
