I didn't wait for New Years to start back on my track of losing weight, but have been using MyFitnessPal to track and not really connecting with people. I happened to see The Spark at the library so I grabbed it and actually like it. It's inspiring and at least gets me in the mood to do this with everything I have.
Doing the long-term goals and thinking about my entire life, not just the journey of losing weight has made me realize my need for community that I've slowly noticed over the past couple of years. I've always been so shy and figured that's just how I was, but then realized I've never been happy like that.
My goal is to lose 100 lbs this year too. I've been wanting to for years, so now is the time I'm sticking to it :)
New ticker for me too and my ultimate goal is 100 pounds along with getting the family healthier. My youngest is a bit chunky and my oldest is perfect height and weight but has the potential to be overweight so I figure if I can rein her in now, maybe she won't have my problems. (My middle is a stick and we won't talk about him. lol)
Yca...is our 100 pound bet still on????

Yup, time for a new ticker.....I slipped up big time and looking at it only makes me feel crappy. So FRESH START! My goals are to make good choices but not hate myself when I slip up. I know it's going to happen....I just have to remember that every new choice can be a fresh start when i need it to be. I always start the new year off with great aspirations and by the end of the year they're all shot to hell so this year I'm NOT doing it! I really feel like I want to do better but that this year it's NOT because it's a "new year". It's just because I want to. And need to. My body is giving me some serious signals that I need to do things differently....I think it's time I listen to it.

I am resetting my ticker. I did lose 20 last year. I'm happy about that but you know what - new year and new goals. Well, same goal but I'm calling it a new start so it feels fresher. SO, I weigh-in tomorrow night and I'm calling it the starting line.

Yep, we have a goal to get healthier. Specifically, I want to get to 135 lbs and maintain it. My husband has a weightlifting benchpress goal, and we all are trying to eat at least 1 fruit and 1 veggie a day. It should make for an interesting year!
