All time high in '07: 248 lbs

Low: 212 lbs

01/02/08: 228 lbs

I've Posted some of my Big Picture Goals elsewhere - being better to myself & to work on my "all or nothing" attitude - not just about low carb wol - but on many things - good & bad. I'm also determined to focus on my tendency to be a procrastinator.

Wanted to Post my Lil Pic/SPECIFIC Goals for '08 here @ LC:

*Gonna check in here @ the Goal Thread once a month to see where I'm at on these Goals to keep FOCUSSED!

*Will post measurements here at the end of every 3 months.

*Determined to get to my Goal Weight this year - that's 89 lbs away - a little over 7 lbs a month? Very doable!

*Mindful eating daily.

*Some form of purposeful exercise daily - even if its just some floor exercises.

*Eat seafood at LEAST 3 times a week.

*Eat salad/cruciferous veggies at least 5 times a week.

*Continue with the water!

Oh you gotta love the goals! We had to do these for my business last week too. And it was neat to see what everyone wanted to do this year other that business related stuff.

Here is my list...
Stay on this program!!

Lose at least 25 lbs by the end of March when I have to be in an evening gown for our Convention.

Be more active, starting with treadmill at home, then to gym at least 3 times a week.

Be more patient with my 3 kids. (That one is a daily struggle, can I get an AMEN!)

Get and keep motivation to make the changes my life needs.

Okay that is enough for now!

Good luck to everyone on keeping with their goals.

Countrymom's Goals for 2008!

1. Get closer to God, Read my bible and pray more.

2. Do low carb plan and exercise at least 30 min 3x a week..building up to once a day.

3. Drink my daily intake of water, which is more than 64oz.

4. Not to drink Caffienated tea. It is easy to drink decaf at home..that is all I buy. But, when you go to resturants they don't have decaf tea so I tend to just drink it anyway. But no more....caffiene causes stalls on eating plans as well as cause you to crave sweets.

5. Eat no fruit or bread(starch) in the beginning until I feel that I can move safely to the next stage in low carb eating which adds back in the low carb breads and fruit.

6. Keep a journal of everything I put in my mouth. This will keep me accountable to myself and I am very why wouldn't I do it! I would help a friend that wanted to do it...."I" should want to do this for ME as well!!

7. When I get discouraged....pick up a phone and call a friend!

9. Meet my mini weight loss goals ...something I haven't been able to do yet.

10.Come off all my meds.

11. Lose all of my weight

12. Keeping a good attitude while doing all of the above!!

I am just now deciding I MUST take control and get my weight under control.

I don't have measurements but I do have weight. ugh!

I need to lose 50 lbs.
I think that could be done inside 2008 if I was very firm with myself. I will make every effort to reach as close to the 50 lbs as I possibly can.

I will walk 1 hour or more at least 5 days a week and keep a chart to report it.

Today's weight 195.6
Goal for March 190.6
Goal for 2008 145 lbs.

03-11-2008, 10:37 AM
my goals:

respect my parents.
think thin
love myself
lose 30 pounds
and stop binge eating! :D

My top 5:

1. Lose 46 more pounds and KEEP IT OFF.
2. Continue my fitness program until I can run for an hour again without feeling like I'm going to die.
3. Be the best mom I can be.
4. Be the best wife I can be.
5. Finish writing my book and try to get published.

The order may look selfish...but in order to take care of my family I have to learn to take care of me first. Have learned that the hard way.
