Mini-Goals - I reached a 10 lb goal in 2 months

07-23-2007, 02:28 PM
I dropped 10 lbs in about 2 months and now I'm revving it up, going to try to lose another 10 in 2 more months. My clothes are fitting better and I feel better.

Goal of cardio daily except maybe one break day, going up to 60 min a day, split between 1 am session of 30 min and same in pm.

Weights 3 times a week as I've been doing from Sculpting Body book that I like. Need to buy 20 lb dumbells as I'm getting stronger!

I feel that my posture has improved from weights, and my belly is starting to shrink - my biggest problem is my mid section - also the worst place for health to gain weight they say.

It's summer - a good time of year for this - but this winter I'm not going to sit around getting FAT again, I gained over 20 lbs in 9 months.

Fat clothes will be boxed and gone for good. (

Yes, another pound down today! In my 160s again... whew. I feel so much better, so much more alive. The biggest part of the blob around my stomach is gone that was so depressing. (

You know...i was doing soooo good on my diet.....going to the gym on my lunch break for 20 min and then going after work and doing cardio for 35-45 min with weights 3 times a week...and abs fiance was also going to "start" with needless to say im still waiting for him to show up.....and i have gotten really discouraged....but just now reading your post of 10 lbs in 2 months has made me inspired to try better! Thank you for making my day!!! YAY!!! lol its amazing how small things can really perk you up!!!!

Yahooooo.... another pound this am! I can't believe this. I really think the key is weight training AND cardio and cutting calories to 1200 or so - but I'll have to admit I moved this week - wasn't doing formal exercise but worked to death in 100 degree weather lifting boxes, etc. But I think the weight training revs up the metabolim - this happened when I lost weight before, once I built some muscle it was easier, I don't know why, maybe it's just me...

Two more pounds down - I'm in my 160s again, although in my younger/thinner years THAT would be nothing to brag about. Thank goodness I got off my butt and started exercising and eating right, I was headed on a road of serious weight gain this past year. Next mini goal - from the current 168 down to 160 and into the 150s again - I was there 1-1/2 years ago and I can do it again. Bye, bye fat clothes.
