Well, mine is to lose the weight i've been hanging on to for some time now, too. I've never been really thin, but i really haven't suffered overweight in the past either, until about 7 months ago when I think i started gaining weight really fast, I still don't know why. I've always had parts of my body I don't like, my tummy for instance, it kinda "spills" over on my sides, and it's disgusting, but now that I've gained weight you see it even more, and it makes me feel uncomfortable and lowers my self-esteem. I've never liked doing diets or exercise, but now my BMI isn't what it's supposed to be, and it bothers me, so I've finally realized that weight has to go, not only to feel better about myself but mostly for good health. I want to lose at least 10 pounds so I can have a right BMI and so that I can feel better with myself, and I want to change my eating habits but mostly learn to love (or at least like a little bit)exercising. Hey, maybe one day I'll even think it's fun! lol.
My goal is to lose the weight I've been hanging on to for a long time. However, my main goal is to become more healthy. I went into cardiac arrest 2 years ago. My DH did CPR on me and I was paddled twice in the ambulance. I had a single bypass. Since then I've lost 15 lbs but have another 25 to go. My secondary goal is to exercise more. My cholesterol is fine but my good cholesterol needs to be better and that can only be done by more exercise. So, that's what my goals for 08 are. What are yours?
