BIG GOALS :
1. Lose 160 lbs
2. No pain in knees or headaches
3. Be healthy enough to keep up with my kiddos
4. To be able to do Disney all day/night w/kids
5. Trip to Europe with my honey
6. Thinking about doing a Color Run - sounds like so much fun, but I've never run before (knee & ankle pain just walking)

Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.

I am happy I clicked on this post. I am begining to see my golas like buy stuff at mall store. I am going to be going to zip lining this summer. I can not go anywere with out someone who has know me in the past to comment on my succes so far. Reading this has motived me to keep pushing and relize all my goals. I want to go to the amusement park and ride alll the rides. To sit on a back yard chair and not break it. Go go on the bus and have a strange sit beside me because there is lots of room on the seat.

I absolutely love whales and dolphins. Like crazytown love them.

My ultimate goal/reward is to go see orcas in BC in a sea kayak excursion. Right now, I couldn't even fit in a kayak, never mind have the core strength and upper body strength to move it anywhere. My goal target is December 2013 so I'm hoping I can go in the summer of 2014 (but will depend on whether or not I'm pregnant at the time - that's an even bigger life goal of mine!)

I want to look in the mirror and be proud/happy of the person I've become. To be able to shop ANYWHERE!! Once I've shed all the weight that I want in order to be happy and healthy, I'm getting a tattoo, I've got a spot reserved on my foot for it =)

To finally make it across the pond to Europe. I have so many health issues right now because of my weight, it's just not worth trying to do it now. Plus, there is NO WAY I'll be able to do the kind of walking around I'd like to! One day...and one day soon I know I can do it!

My goal starting tomorrow is to start climbing stairs in my apartment complex. There are 14 floors. I believe I can do 5 now but i am determined that by christmas I will be able to at least do 10 flights along with my other exercising which is walking/ running for 45 minutes 6 times a week. Thanks for all the encouragement I have found on this site. I love to spend my evening pouring over sparkpeople!!!!!! emoticon

It you train, you can achieve.

No, you can't go out and do it tomorrow... but you can do 100 stairs tomorrow... maybe in chunks of 20. And you can build from there.

NO LIMITS.

I just want to be able to run and have been thinking a lot lately about joining a 5k.I would like to climb the stairs to the top of the Empire State Building. They have a stair climbing race there but not sure if I would want to do that. Most people who do that are probably younger than me! I would still like to climb all those stairs though.

My biggest dream is to be able to look in the mirror and be proud of all the hard work I have put in. So many times I will walk by a mirror / window and avoid my reflection. I HATE looking at myself in the mirror and seeing what I have done to myself all these years. My "reward" will be the ultimate new wardrobe.

Mine right now would have to be to go back to school to become a dietitian and or trainer, I have not decided which one i want for sure and am truly thinking both. Then to find my dream job somewhere. And eventually teaching group fitness classes or small group classes. I am so not a public speaker so it would totally be a great accomplishment.

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

I want to take my 5 year old to Disney World. We had the chance to go this winter, but I didn't do it and I feel awful about it. I just knew I wouldn't fit in the rides. I WILL NOT let my weight rob my son of his childhood!!!!!

Soo... it's not the ultimate goal, but it's my big motivation. By next January, I will be slim enough to take my son to Disney World, ride the rides with him, and I won't be too ashamed to show up in the pictures.

Liquid protein + unlimited fruits and veggies.

Goal- Take my son to Disney World.

Mine is a combination of Fantasyfairy1 and G-twins. I will also be 40, next year and I want to look and feel great. For my 40th birthday I would like to run the LA Marathon which is a few weeks before my birthday and I would also like to go to Hawaii with my husband.

I am 39 this year so next year I reach the big 40, I just don't wanna be the BIG 40! A day out with my family to an amusement park with roller coasters and rides, and a picnic! To be able to eat out without feeling as if everyone is looking at the fat person stuffing her face. That's my BIG dream!

Wisdom from an Ivory Soap wrapper: "Enjoy the little things for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things."

If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything, is ready, we shall never begin. -Ivan Turgenev

Dream big and then work to make those dreams come true! We're all stronger than we think we are!
