Updated goals: This year 2016, is going to be a great year!!! I have some serious goals to attain, I'm heading towards a big birthday this year and PLAN on accomplishing my weight goal. I realize I must make a lifestyle change with diet and exercise. I may start slow, but will be in full swing by the end of January.

I have a FitBit One and these were my 2015 totals, all of which I plan on breaking!!!

Steps: 3,890,098
Miles: 1,6322.22
Floors: 914
Calories: 832,729

My daily step goal is 11,000 per day, except maybe for Wednesday. I sail every Wednesday and it's difficult to get the extra exercise in.

I KNOW I can do this!!!

We have a near-term goal for August and then the next goal set for September.

I want to lose 30 lbs, and I'm not putting a final date down this time. I have several interim goals.

We will do it!!!!

My Goals:
My total weight loss goal is 35 lbs, by Sept. 2016.

Starting weight: 186.5
Starting date: 1/2/16

Mini goals/dates:
Mar 2nd - 177
May 15th - 170
July 4th - 164
Aug 15th - 159
Sept 17th - 155

The reason for these dates are trips and/or company associated with them.

My Program:
My husband & I are watching our carb intake, trying to stay below 40 grams a day. We started at 20 grams and have slowing worked our way up to 40. On occasion, we will drop down to help with plateauing.

We plan on an occasional "cheat day" to reward us when we've accomplished a goal.

My exercise goal is to burn 400 + calories a day, and to get in at least 30 minutes a day of exercise with one day of rest a week.

I know I can do this and by September of next year (a BIG birthday), I want to be at my goals.

Personal Information:
My name is Carol and I live in Florida. I love to sail, play bass guitar in our band, and cruise.

Other Information:
New Year's resolutions:

1. Reach my goal weight
2. Get off my BP medicine

6. Increase our savings accounts
7. Practice and improve my bass playing
8. Improve my sailing skills
9. Be a better friend

    Hi Carol, Just popping by your page to say "Hello!" I hope all is well! I have been busy for the last two weeks, and have not been able to keep up with my fellow Dragons as I would like. I think things are clearing a bit, and I hope to chat more with everyone very soon!

    Take care,

    The Challenge is on until no later than midnight Oct. 4.

    Monsters and creepy crawlers lurk in the Haunted House. The only way to survive crossing the threshold is to do all they DEMAND!

    I'm about eight feet tall
    And have bolts in my head.
    I have a powerful rage
    Although I am really dead

    A way to find me is to prowl over to the Black Panther Leader's page. I will be waiting with the first DEMAND!

    Boo, Losinglinndy, Panther leader
