Mission 3: Flick On The Action Switch

Now that we’ve done important work laying the psychological groundwork for success, it’s time to turn to the physical.

We need a goal to aim for, and a way to chart our progress, as we get slimmer.

Having a goal can be empowering and motivating. But when it comes to weight loss, things get complicated.

Many people have negative associations with weight-loss goals – perhaps having lost and re-gained weight in the past, or having failed to reach the number they’d aimed for.

Not only that, but the number on the scale can fluctuate in a way that doesn’t represent either the actions we’re taking or the overall trend in our body shape. It can be demoralizing when we’re taking the right actions and our body shape is improving, but the scales shout ‘failure’!

Because weight – kilograms or pounds on the scale – is such a loaded concept and can be a tricky measure, we’re going to use different ways both to set our goal and measure our progress.

This approach will bypass the tyranny of the scales and put your focus where it brings the best weight-loss returns.

    I’m going to have a “weight” and a “non-weight” goal. 🙂 My non-weight goal is to fit into my blue and orange outfit comfortably. My weight goal is to get to my pre pregnancy weight.

  2. Cyndi Calvert Beveridge says:

    I have had a little black dress hanging in my bathroom for the past year. Unfortunately it hasn’t motivated me, just irritated & depressed me. Today I took a cue from Pam & added a pair of old hiking pants that don’t stretch. I can button them, however I can’t sit &/or breathe while wearing them YET. Belly fat be gone!

  3. Kylie Browne says:

    Like some of you, fitting into my jeans (not squeezing into my jeans) will be my tell-tale sign of action! I’m looking forward to the day I can:
    1. Slip into the jeans easily.
    2. Do the button up.
    3. Feel comfortable sitting down in them!

  4. Cathy Beale says:

    I bought a pair of jeans one size smaller last year while on a weight loss mission of my own, before I could achieve it, I found out I was pregnant just one week after buying them so they have never been worn! Yet…

  5. Kaye Nutman says:

    Drop a dress size and lose the muffin top – no more hiding under baggy clothes; no more going into shops and finding the (Aussie) 14 is too tight and unflattering.

  6. Terry Currie says:

    One person has lost 23 pounds.
    One smokes cigars and is having no health issues.
    One has regained weight as he had to give up smoking cigars due to breathing problems.
    Not using illegal drugs anymore.

    Non-Weight Goal:
    Do not go back to oily, salty food.
    Dress size smaller.
    Eat healthier.
    Eat breakfast every morning and eat a light dinner.

    Small breakfast; a large lunch and no dinner and I lost 23 pounds.

    Per two student nurses:
    Cheese has a lot of cholesterol in them.
    Humus is healthy for you.
    Greek yogurt is thicker and better for you.
    Combine protein and carbs together.
    Unsalted peanuts.
    Organic fruits and vegetables don’t use pesticides.
    Amish Ground Beef and Amish Chicken have no pesticides.
    Fruits with thick rinds: bananas, oranges, etc. pesticides would have a hard time getting through the rinds. These fruits are safe to eat.
    Fruits that don’t have thick skins: strawberries/berries; grapes, etc. pesticides can get into these fruits. Spray the fruits to take off some of the pesticides.
    Protein source: lentils; navy beans.
    Brown rice and lentils.
    If you use canned food drain the juice out and then spray with water to get some of the pesticides out for healthier eating.
    Pesticides: unhealthy eating.
    Cincinnati Burgers are 12 to a pack with 2% Sodium.
    Portion control is the size of your fist.
    Frozen foods with corn are not good for you.
    Sweet potatoes are better for you.

  7. Amy Lee says:

    My “non-weight” goal is to have more energy to run around with my son. We’re both outdoorsy and I want to feel better about going outside and being active. I would also like to fit in my clothes better and just be happy with myself, again.

  8. Gail M Helgeson says:

    Get back in my size 12 jeans comfortably, but more than that: a long bike ride with Steve, a hike with Marilyn, scenic bike rides as we travel this year, and learning to snowshoe.
