Long-term goals.... Dare I say Dreams?

Sunday, July 08, 2012

I have really begun to think about what I want in life. I have read blogs about what happens after you lose the weight. Losing the weight doesn’t change your life, it changes your body. So while I am working to lose the weight to increase myself worth, I think it is also important to work toward my other goals. So I have developed a list of my goals:

Physical Goals:
-I want my shirts to sit flat and not have a roll from my stomach. I never remember this being the case and it is possibly my number one goal!
- I want my arms to be toned enough that I feel comfortable wearing a sleeveless shirt.
-I want to feel comfortable with my own body.
-I want to like what I see.

Emotional Goals:
-I want to be comfortable in a group.
-I want to love me.
-I want to make decisions based on my wants not someone else’s.
-I want to have the courage to say no.
-I want to value myself above others.

Personal Goals:
-I want to fall in love.
-I want to get married.
-I want to have children.
-I want to travel the world.
-I want to own my own home.
-I want to feel content.

Professional Goals:
-I want a career that allows me to have nights and weekends off.
- I want a career that allows me to afford the lifestyle I currently live.
-I want to LOVE going to work.
-I want to be challenged in my career.
- I want to learn how to use a comma…. I mean seriously where do you put them? Two bachelor’s degrees and still am missing this basic concept.

I plan to keep updating this list. It is crazy when you sit and realize that the weight is really just one minor thing in your life but I feel as though it controls everything.

    Great goals! What do you do for a living now? I know you are working on your second bachelors, but what do you currently do, and what are you planning to do after you receive your second degree?

    Absolutely correct, weight loss is just a PART of your life. Your goals are amazing and I do hope you continue on with them! Push for them....

    Oh and I have issues with comma's too, I put them in where ever I seem to...'pause'. hahaha I don't know if I'm right or not, but I try. hahaha

    Those are AWESOME goals! I sometimes feel like it's easy to get caught up in just "I want to lose x pounds" and assume that the rest will fall into place after that but that is not the case. By setting such well rounded goals I am sure you will have much success!!

    Commas! My first argument with my business partner, 18 years ago, was over a comma. (To this day I believe I was right, but I don't remember what we went with.) They are funny things, no? :)

    I love your list of goals. You will start to see them fall off the list as DONE....Keep up the good work!

    I've been thinking about my long-term goals a lot lately, too. I think it's super important to do so! I love how you categorized them, too :-) ...perhaps I should do a long-term dream blog!

    Hi! I'm Lauren! Your blog popped up in the team challenge feed, and I just wanted to say it's awesome! I love how you made goals outside of weight loss and broke them down into specific categories! We have a lot of common goals too, so if you need anything feel free to find me!

    hahaha....this is my fave site for comma usage:

    grammar/commas.htm
    I remember my hubby becoming obsessed with the semicolon while he was studying. I like the ellipsis myself...it's the lazy punctuation!

    Anyway, I really like this idea of long-term goals :)
