Default 2013 Resolutions: Valentine's Day to April Fools' Day!

Everyone is welcome - you don't need to have been a part of the previous challenge to participate.

Post your 2013 New Year's resolution. If you don't make resolutions and want to make a goal, that's fine too. It doesn't have to be a specific weight or a specific size but it does have to be SPECIFIC (i.e. Don't write "I want to be healthier." If you want to improve your health, how are you going to measure that? Do you want a specific blood pressure range? Do you want to be able to run a mile nonstop? etc).

Next you're going to write what you're going to do from Valentine's Day to April Fools' Day to make that happen! That's approximately 6 weeks. What will you do for the next 6 weeks of 2013? How will you make your resolution happen?

Copy and paste this format. You'll be coming back each week to update your progress (find the entry and click edit). And this thread will be available for us to chat about the challenge, overcome struggles and celebrate successes.


2013 Resolution:

From Valentine's Day to April Fools' Day, my resolution is:

Week one (ends Feb 18):
Week two (ends Feb 25):
Week three (ends March 4):
Week four (ends March 11):
Week five (ends March 18):
Week six (ends March 25):
Week seven (ends APRIL 1st):

With the Valentine's Day challenge drawing to a close, I'm anxious to keep going! Here's to hoping I make my goal of 220 by 2/13 so this challenge can start smoothly. [ETA: YES!]

2013 Resolution: To lose 52 pounds by December 31, 2013! That's obviously one pound per week, and will put me at an unfathomable 175 pounds.

From Valentine's Day to April Fools' Day, my resolution is: To reach an average loss of one pound per week, getting me down to (gasp!) 213.

I've adjusted each date to land on a Wednesday, which is my official weigh-in day at TOPS. Here we go . . .

Starting point (Feb 13th)
Starting weight: 220

Week one (Feb 20th)
Goal weight: 219
...Actual weight: 217
Notes: I'm off to a great start! So, so excited to finally be out of the 220's! I'm at my lowest weight since 8th grade.

Week two (Feb 27th):
Goal weight: 218
...Actual weight: 218
Notes: Gained a little but I'm right at goal and still following the planned trend.

Week three (March 6th):
Goal weight: 217
...Actual weight: 218
Notes: Gained a little again, which is apparently one of those things since I think I've been doing great eating-wise and exercise-wise. Here's to hoping it's reflected in next week's weigh-in.

Week four (March 13th):
Goal weight: 216
...Actual weight: 216
Notes: Back on track, thankfully I got a woosh this week!

Week five (March 20th):
Goal weight: 215
...Actual weight: 215
Notes: Wow, just wow. I'm sticking to my schedule like glue, lol. Two more weeks, two more pounds. I'm extremely proud of myself.

Week six (March 27th):
Goal weight: 214
...Actual weight: 213
Notes: I can't believe I hit my goal already! Now to at least maintain for the next week.

Week seven (APRIL 3rd):
Goal weight: 213
...Actual weight: 213
Notes: I stayed the same as last week! No complaints on my end, I made my goal.

2013 Resolution: To lose 120 pounds by December 31, 2013 - this would put me at 152.

From Valentine's Day to April Fools' Day, my resolution is: to lose 22 pounds

Starting weight: 254.8

Week one (Feb 18th)
Goal weight: 252.8
...Actual weight: 252.4 (-2.4)
Notes:

Week two (Feb 25th):
Goal weight: 248.8
...Actual weight: 251.8 (-0.6)
Notes: Was stuck between 252.4 and 252.8 most of the week - very happy to be under 252! I also had a special mother-daughter date day yesterday that included some (amazing) local restaurant food, and I'm almost positive I went over my usual calorie allowance by 500-800 (It was worth it - I estimated things the best I could - no nutrition facts at a local joint!) so I'm happy to not see a gain this morning. Hoping to see a better overall loss next week!

Week three (March 4th):
Goal weight: 245.8
...Actual weight: 254.0 (+2.2)
Notes: UGH. Huge gain. Hopefully pre-TOM water weight?

...Actual weight: 249.4 (-4.6)
Notes:

Week five (March 18th):
Goal weight: 239.8

Notes: (+2.0)

Week two (ends Feb 25): Logging--check. Calories--check. Walking--check. Weight: 215
Week three (ends March 4): Logging--check. Calories--check. Walking--check. Weight: 216.4 (jumped with Chinese food)

Goal weight: 256 (Will have been on vacation for over a week, hoping to lose but okay with maintaining)
Actual weight: 254.4

I'm ready! I didn't quite make my Valentine's Day goal so I added the extra pounds to this goal.

2013 Resolution: 160 by December 31, 2013

From Valentine's Day to April Fools' Day, my resolution is: I need to lose 20 pounds during this challenge to stay on track for the year. That will put me at 250

Week one (ends Feb 18): 270. This is actually my start date.
Week two (ends Feb 25): 265.5 Absolutely thrilled to be on track!
Week three (ends March 4):
Week four (ends March 11):
Week five (ends March 18):
Week six (ends March 25):
Week seven (ends APRIL 1st):
