My half marathon 2nd March 2014. I know they say you should just focus on finishing your first half marathon, but I can't help but think that I've had enough time to train (I signed up 3 months ago) so if I get more than 2:30 time I will be a bit disappointed in myself. In fantasy land I want to be fit and gorgeous for my own wedding (I'm noticing a theme in all these posts!) so no bingo wings, and no back fat

Well, I graduated this year while I was at a high weight. It wasn't great. And my birthday is in a few days so I won't be my goal weight for that one. :b BUT I have one whole year to lose weight for my 24th! So that's the event I'm looking forward to.

Also, these aren't planned events or anything, but I know at least one of my cousins will be getting married in the next year or two. I'd love to be able to buy some cute clothes for once! Indian clothes are not cute in the bigger sizes....or flattering for a bigger girl. So yes, I'll be vain and say I want to look good in a sari and not have my back fat or my stomach hanging out haha.

Overall though I'm not looking forward to any one event. Just being able to fit into cuter clothes and be able to do more physically will be great. And it's always nice to hear compliments from friends and family.

Like most others I want to be fit and beautiful for whenever I get married Also I want to be solidly at goal by the time I move away for grad school in spring 2015, which I think is completely doable since thats over a year away. It will be so neat to meet new people who haven't seen me at a larger size!

I want to be at least close to gaol by my college graduation in May of 2014... I reached my highest weight while I have been at school, and I'd like to reach my lowest "adult" weight and not wear an extra large graduation gown at graduation.

My next actual event will be my graduation from undergrad in May 2014. After that I assume I'd want to find myself a boy and start a family and such. Also traveling, lots of traveling.

My brother's wedding at the end of March 2014...my ENTIRE family will be there. I know I wont be at goal, but I want to look better. I have a good four months to make something happen!

Best part is I am in the wedding, but we don't have to have matching dresses. We all just need full length navy blue gowns (designer, cut, style, etc. is our choice), so there isn't extra stress in terms of fitting into a dress or not having to wear one that isn't flattering. I want to go shopping in early March and get something that looks awesome on me!

I would really really like to be at goal by the time I graduate with my Bachelor's.

I'll likely be leaving state or at least going to a different city to get my Master's and it would be so cool to be at my goal already so that I can focus on making friends, getting my masters and getting ready to start a career for myself. I just would like my weight to be less of an issue for me.

I have two really...

One, I'd like to be at, or nearer to, my ideal weight by the time I graduate from university June 2015.

Two, I'd love to be physically fit before me and my husband starting trying to have kids. I know that it would be so much better if I was and I'd be able to exercise easier while pregnant if I'm fitter before hand. We want to start trying shortly after I graduate from university.

My cousin that is 8 days younger than me is getting married in Oct 2014 and my aunt let it slip that she is going to ask me to be in the wedding so I have just under a year to get fit for that! It made my goal even more important to me!!

Then of course I want to by at goal for my own wedding one day but lord only knows how far away that is!
