Congrats!

I need to get back to losing weight. I've had a lot of stress and health issues this year creep up on me and gained some weight back. Not sure I will get rid of the stress since I am going to school, but the weight needs to go since part of it has to do with health or should I say it has a lot to do with some of the health issues, cholesterol and now blood pressure!!

I didn't get my bike out this year. Need to do that next Spring and start riding again!!

Halfway to my first goal; to reduce 50 lbs! It has been a challenge but I have more energy than ever and I look forward to my walks and bike rides.

Looking at back at my goals I posted, I started back at the parks doing the raptor and butterfly monitoring. Cheap? Yes, but it still costs me in gas, especially with the costs going up! Geez, can't win.

Still working on the 10 lbs

Still working on the menu

Still working on the debt

As of Jan 1, I have paid off 3 small medical bills and a store credit card, caught up on my utility bills, caught up a little on my mortgage. I still have a long way to go, but I will be really happy to see a few more gone in the next 3-6 months if all works out according to my plan! Of course, I did this by taking out against an IRA. Probably not the smartest thing to do since I will owe taxes and penalties, but I felt I had no choice but to do it to get caught up!!

Now I need to work on the "diet". I feel I am still in holiday mode and still eating. Need to get to the grocery store to buy some decent food!!

Out for a vigorous 1 hour walk yesterday and stopped for a few seconds to observe a spritely golden crowned kinglet. They are a nice bird to spot in the dead of winter.

We're also watching our finances, so that will be one goal. The last two months I have not been burning enough calories. So that is another goal. Get better organize with my teams is another.

To stay on my healthy eating program, get at least an hours worth of activities a day , and to love. Losing 50 pounds would be nice but I ain't pushing it.
I actually lost 62 last year emoticon

My goals for 2011:
~to lose 10 lbs in 10 weeks.

~to get financial stable - start tracking spending on a daily basis and keeping a running total of debt as it disappears!

~start working on weekly menus for myself - learn new recipes, make shopping lists and try to use as many coupons as I can to keep cost down.

~find a inexpensive new hobby that fits in with my time - checking out the park systems again

~continue the job hunt.

~get organized and simplify.

The New Year is almost here and I thought I would post some new thread and revive some old one that we have in this forum.

We have the "Minutes, Miles, and Step Challenge" thread that no one has posted on in a while. Let's get back at it! Move it, Move it, Move it!! We also have the "How Do You "Measure Up" thread. This was posted so that you could take measurements of your body to see what you have lost. Remember you may not have lost in weight, but you may have lost in inches!! If you want to post you loss there, great!!

I think I will post a new thread for losing 10 lbs in 10 weeks. That would take us to the week ending March 12th. 1 lbs a week is a reasonable weight loss goal.

What are your goals for 2011? Start out with small ones to meet your annual goal. It doesn't even have to be health/weight related.
