Okay...my goals and I will probably add to them throughout as I become inspired by things...

10% of current weight down by Halloween
South Beach Diet for eating and Curves for working out.
My personal goal is to just do just be consistent and stay focused over the next few months. To keep increasing the things that I do that contribute to my health...hypnosis, shiatsu (ouch but good) and other things that make me feel balanced.

I'm here too girls...but, my goal is for October 15th...it's only fair...cause the surgeon will be removing some lbs. that day...so, I'll weigh-in that morning and then on the 31st...well, I should be a tad bit lighter by then but I'll reassess that goal after I see how much comes off in surgery.

So, I'm 176.5 today.
starting weight (at least) 196
ultimate goal 130-145
(I'll know when I get there )
short term goal 169
(about 7.5 pounds, wow...haven't seen the 160's
for seven years and now it feels attainable! )

personal goal: feel like a strong healthy woman when I get admitted to the hospital...be satisfied with the outcome even if I don't look like Madonna after...
or rather, even if my breasts are the only part of my body that looks like Madonna's...

ps, the offer is still out there if any of you need donations...there is plenty to go around...just email me your blood type and if you're a match, the excess adipose tissue is yours for the takin'...tho' I guess if transplanting and relocation were an option none of us would really need 3fc...hmmmm....

fitness goal: get to the gym three to four times per week and practice yoga four times per week...

thanks for being there girls,
Love, Soozie

Hi all! Thanks for the welcome. And I'd be happy to be scarier... this Halloween. Heh heh heh.

I've been back OP for a week... but am doing terribly. My plan is to reduce calories and add exercise, but i can't stay on it for more than a day or two. I'm hoping posting here will keep me accountable.

Hope you all have a great day,
AR
