Enough is Enough... I am finally writing my

Sunday, January 30, 2011

While I am in Stage 2 (and almost ready to jump into stage 3- that will be another blog) I still have not set my official long term goal. I really wanted to think about it because I didn't want it to be just about the scale number and inches loss because then that is me working on the outside package only, again!

I write this with full consideration that I can change it at any time... as life changes, goals can too and I have to be flexible- for the present time this is what I want to work towards:

My Scale Goal: emoticon

I want to lose 53.1 pounds- I won't be skinny and still over the government standards but this is a weight I have maintained for a LONG time in the past and able to wear size 10 clothing. I am happy at this weight! And my doctor is too.

My Body Measurement Goal (measured by clothing size): emoticon

I want to wear size 12 clothes- so I can shop in all stores and not just plus size stores or in the fatty section of department stores. This is a HUGE goal as I am a size 18/20 in plus sizes now- I am hopeful I can do this!

My Health Goals: emoticon

To be rid of my sleep machine!!!
To lower my antidepressants (I know I will never be off of them but I would like to lower my current dose as it is high and I take two types)!!
To tone up my body, and lower my body fat to keep my heart from overworking!

My Person Goals: emoticon

To be rid of self defeating thoughts forever.
To forgive myself for things I feel I have done wrong and stop persevering on what I can not change.
To be more patient with my children.
To follow through with better parenting for the one child I have left at home.
To become a better and more attentive lover (life makes me tired- this has to change!).
To be less self absorbed with myself and my life and remember there are others that may need my help- just to be more conscious of others. Actions speak louder then words- try to live by that.
To embrace and spread positivity and light on to others- to be kinder all around.

I will only refer to this once in a while as it is VERY overwhelming and chock full of ambition.... but if I keep working like I have been working I will get there.

If there has to be a time line-- I would like the scale and health goals to be accomplished by the time I am 45 (I am 43.5)... the other goals I will always strive for so those are on going.

    Great blog. I have no doubt you will reach your scale, measurement and health goals. What I loved about this blog was the personal goals you made too. Those very personal things are motivation to do the rest. Having goals that are backed with things like family and conquering negative self talk helps motivate to do the rest. Good for you for writing these things down. Oh, and I know you'll reach those personal goals as well.

    Congratulations on having nailed down your goals. You're on your way!


    (And have you read The Spark? I'm really enjoying it, I think you would too!)

    Happy thoughts for you! You can do this! Be kind to yourself and be a tiny bit selfish with your healthy goals!
