Setting a goal

I am sitting here today procrastinating as usual. I even considered trying to take a nap. I never nap but laying in the bed was pretty much awesome. Even though I didn't want to...I got up to get into work mode but decided to put up a recent picture and post before I got to work. One of the components of my weight loss program is setting an ultimate goal. I can see that this is a good idea...especially because if you reach it and maintain it...you get free membership. I have avoided doing an ultimate goal yet because quite honestly, I have a long way to go and I was worried that a goal that is going to take me a couple of years might be discouraging. I have been very happy with my tiny victories. I was thinking yesterday though that I need to come up with a goal just so I know exactly how much I want to weigh. I was looking at what someone my height is supposed to weigh and I am SUPPOSED to weigh 150 pounds at the MOST. This just seems ridiculous to me. I haven't weighed that much in a long time. I come from a family of women who are all very thick and stocky. No, this isn't the typical "I'm big boned" speech but I AM naturally...thick. That's the only way I can really describe it. The last time I lost weight...I was only about 10 pounds away from being at a point where I just wanted to maintain. I wasn't SMALL then. I have never been skinny...ever. So, for me to see myself in a 4 or 6 is just not something I can even comprehend. Also, if I set 150 as my goal...well...at the rate I'm going it may take me 3 years. They say the last little bit is the hardest to lose and I can see myself getting very upset and dismayed trying for months to get down to 150 pounds. Anyway, I haven't decided what my ultimate goal is but I am working on it. I guess I should decide soon. I am very sore today after the torturous game but I should be ready to get up at 5:30 am tomorrow to work out. Should be a blast!
