In addition to keeping off the weight, I need to find ways to reduce my mid-section. I'm getting very square shaped.
I like keeping it off. I'm not sure what I expect when I reach my goal weight. I guess I have never really believed I could reach it. I would love to do more hiking and just be more active without all my fat bouncing around with me.
1.5 freggies a day
2. exercise 10 min 6x a week
3. do 1 strength training aweek
4. organize something 5x a week
5 Bible time everyday
6.eat nothing after 8pm
Keeping it off and buying a more attractive wardrobe to show off the new figure.
Keeping it off!

I was a runner for quite sometime before having my daughter (and the emergency csection under general anestia that brought her into this world ...) but when I try now I feel like Im going to die! Ill get there soon .... Hoping to do a 5K in March .... and work up from there :)

As shallow as it may sound, my goal after weight loss is the bikini. I would love to feel confident, toned, and sexy in a bikini next summer...and I will. :)

Of course I want to feel and look healthier -- who doesn't?
But my vain side wants to be able to wear pretty clothes again and to be "noticed" once in a while. I would love to not feel self-conscious about my weight and appearance.
Well, this is sort of a strange question for me because I never felt like there was anything I could not or should not do, even when I weighed 300 pounds. I always went out, I always wore cute clothes, I always felt fairly self-confident, even when I was very sick. Other than wearing a bikini...I will probably never do that, though because I am covered in scars--no matter how thin I get, my belly will always look bad.
I've lost weight slowly over a couple of years and have been keeping it off along the way, so there haven't been any drastic transitions for me.
I guess I just want to be healthy and to feel strong. I have some horrible health problems that are totally beyond my control and I want to feel like I am in charge of the things that I can control. Also, I have been pre-diabetic for 20 years and am currently taking a very necessary medication which pushes a lot of people into diabetes. At the moment, my A1C and glucose are great and I would like to keep it that way.

I just want to wear cute, funky clothes again. My style is a bit loud and for years I've been wearing hubby's old tshirts or plain clothes I find on clearance. I've already started buying clothes in a smaller size so I have cute things to shrink into. Some I can already get on but it doesn't look very good. LOL It'll be fun to see that change.
I'd love to wear an awesome swimsuit to the beach next summer. When we went this past summer I was so self-conscious that it affected how much I enjoyed it. I don't want that to happen again.
Goals (start date 10/25/12):
10 pounds lost - 12/10/12
20 pounds lost - 01/21/13
30 pounds lost - 03/11/13
40 pounds lost -
50 pounds lost -
Final goal -
When I finally reach my goal, I'm going to buy an entire new wardrobe. I haven't worn a dress or skirt in YEARS!! I'm going to buy LOTS of them. I think it'll be a whole lot easier to wear pantyhose & a slip at my goal weight.

What is 1 or 2 goals you have when you reach your goal weight?
For some people, it will be fitting in their smaller size clothes, for some people it will be to look great on a special occasion like wedding or high school reunion, some people it's to get off of medications....
Whatever your ultimate goal is, write it down, daily somewhere, and remember that goal when offered extra sweets and before you take a second plate of food. It will help!
By the way, One of my big goals is to be at my goal weight for my wedding in May 2013!
