Default Valentine's Day Weight Loss Goals

The sad fact is that I am nowhere near accomplishing any of my New Year's goals, in fact I have gained a few pounds over the holidays. I need to change a lot about the way that I eat.

I'm going to skip right over the New Year's challenge and start fresh with some new goals for Valentine's day. From today (Dec 27th) that is exactly 7 weeks. I want to put my weight under 200, I'm not exactly sure how much that is since I've been too chicken to weigh myself. It has too be 20 lbs at least. I think that is a goal that I can accomplish if I work on my eating habits, drink lots of water and keep up with my exercise. I know that it sounds like a lot but I really think I can do it. I'm going to try really really hard!!!!

Who is with me??

Jen....20 lbs in 7 weeks means losing
3lbs per week, which is a lot to expect
when you still have to get through the
holidays and the aftermath. I really
think you should set a goal of 15 lbs
which is 2lbs per week to lose. Anything above that is pure gold.
We must be careful not to set up too
high goals which might be too difficult
to attain, and then lead to "failure"
which is really not a failure, cause any
weight loss is a success story in itself.
But having attained "the goal" makes
it all the more sweeter to savor. But ,
if you really think you can lose
the 20 lbs in 7 weeks, I sincerely wish
you all the best of luck and success.
But 1st of all, before you start this 'challenge'...you must get on the scale
and determine exactly what it is you must lose..is it 20lbs or maybe just 18lbs. ..or maybe only 16lbs. Being honest with yourself is the first step to
realizing your strengths and your weaknesses and knowing how to deal
with your food issues. And just because you gained a few lbs over the
holidays does not mean you failed.
This is just a resting stop on your journey. When you drive a car, you make turns, backup, go forward, etc.
Well consider the holidays as backing
up, and now you're ready to go forward again

Great idea - will give us something to aim for after a tough time food-wise!

I'm going to aim for 165 - that's an 11 pound loss by Feb 14th. It doesn't seem a lot, but at this stage, I've really slowed down, and I think it's realistic, but a goal which will take some work to reach.


Good luck everyone... we can do this!!

I am in. I am going to focus on only 1 lb a week. so that is 7 lbs, but that is from my lower weight of 170.

This way i will not be pushing for goals that are unobtainable, but the focus will be on the workouts and the eating the right foods without detours.

I love these challenge things!

I am 4 #'s away from my new year' s goal of 229#. For Valentines Day I would like to be 219#. That's a weight loss goal of 10+ #'s. That would be pretty cool!

Default My Goals

I was nowhere near my New Year's goal, but hey I'm still here and still at least trying to stay OP so that's something.
My goal for Valentine's is the same as what I set for New Year's-->250. If I make it to that it will be the least I've weighed in 5 years.
Good luck to all.

Default What is OP?

I have seen a few people use OP. What does that stand for?

Amata...
OP means "on program" or "on plan"

Sherry:
Please dont tell us that you plan to starve yourself all day without eating.
That is not the way to lose weight and
KEEP it off. We are all struggling here
to reduce our weight in a HEALTHY way.
You have to learn to eat proper portions
and eat a well-balanced food intake.
Some of us are following low calorie,
some low protien, some low carb, low
sugar, the zone diet, whatever....
but the important thing to remember that
this is the beginning of a new way to
LIVE. And to live, you must eat...not starve. denying yourself of food all day and then enduring hunger cravings at night is not proper nutrition. Please reevaluate your diet program and be healthy. Good luck.

Susan, I appreciate your concern and your comments about my setting a high weight loss goal in a relatively short time period. I am well aware of how difficult it may be to lose 3.5 lbs a week but sometimes you have to set the bar high in order to motivate yourself. This gain over the past month has been a wake up call for me. I've been talking the talk but not walking the walk if you know what I mean. I've said all the same things you have said in your posts on this thread and frankly it has gotten me nowhere. Right now I need a serious kick in the rear to get myself going and I think setting a tough goal will do it. I know what I am capable of and I know I am capable of this if I really work at it.

Angry Valentine's Goal

hello!
My new years goal was 40 pounds which when I last weighed was five pounds away! I have been sick so maybe I should weigh in tommorow. I wonder if that weight will stay away when you lose it being sick?? Will report more tommorow and think about my new goal.
