MY Vday Goal is to reach the 180's...5 more lbs!
Anyone wanna join me on a mini goal for the next cpl weeks?

A friend and I are starting Phase 1 on Feb 1. My goal is to successfully complete it (and not blow in on V-day :val1: ) and to lose 5 pounds. That is basically the rest of my origianl weight loss goal, I have been stuck at 140 for a while. We'll see what happens.

I set a Valentine's Day Goal of 7 lbs. back in the beginning of January, it's on my ticker below. As of last Saturday 3 lbs. down, 4 to go, but I am also not weighing until 2/14, so I won't know if I made it or not until the day.
So I am in there with you! Good luck with your goals.

I really would love to be in the 220's by Valentine's Day...That means I have to lose at least 7 more lbs by then..I'll set a more firm goal after my weigh in Tuesday. Anything less than what I am now would be fantastic! LOL

I just want to focus on following the food plan the way it was devised each day. I figure that the weight lose will take care of itself.

I have been closely monitoring how much carbs/fruits I can eat and still see a 2 lb weight lose each week. For me, it is 3/3.

I am very pleased that my body seems to be responding to this well. I have decided to continue to eat the way Phase One is structured with the 3 meals and 3 snacks as listed in the book. All I have done is add the carbs during one or two of the meals. The same with the fruits. I have a tendency to prefer to add those in with my breakfast and lunch. I am still eating the protein snacks and having the sugar free Jello or chocolate pudding. I have not had anything with sugar since January 1st. Not even bread. It costs $2.00 more for less of a loaf than I was buying but it is truly sugar-free.

I am not sure if my DH and I will go out to eat on V-Day's since of course the restaurants will be super crowded any way. I haven't bought candy or gotten it as a gift in so long that I doubt this year will be any different. Once hubby married me, that all stopped. LOL. Love him any way. Maybe, he feels I am sweet enough as it is.

I really thought it would be harder to do this than it has been. The most challenging part for me right now is keeping pace with buying the groceries. I am finding that it is costing me about $30 more per week. My DH has been understanding but that has been my biggest concern for now.

Good luck on your weight lose goals, keep us posted.;)

..I removed the scale from my bathroom..gonna try to only weigh on Saturdays *wish me luck*

01-28-2008, 12:32 AM
Missinmysoldier78 , I think i am also gonna gid rid of my scale. Its like a mental torture!! Anyways my goal is to lose about 20 pounds or less by valentines day. I know its sounds like a unrealistic plan.. But since i am on phase 1 and thinking about doing it for another two weeks... Lets c.. I hope i could lose about that much weight!

01-28-2008, 01:07 AM
i wanna lose like 5 pounds...i would prefer like two inches off my waist so i could get into some old jeans lol...but i'll settle for just the five pounds

01-28-2008, 02:01 AM
I am going for 5! So far though P2 is not treating me well... :( But I am going to keep on it and try to not weigh myself until V-day!

Good luck everyone :)

Hmm..If I lose 1 pound a week until Valentines day that would put me at 177.5. I think I'll make my goal to get to 176! So, 4.5 pounds in 3 weeks!

I can do it! =)

I would like to lose 10 pounds by Valentine's Day. It might be obtainable because I am on day 8 of phase 1. I am having some company for the week, the week before, so maybe I should reconsider.Just need to do my best, but St. V's Day is in sight for a time frame.

01-28-2008, 11:36 AM
My valentines goal that I set at the beginning of January is to be at 190 - wish me luck

01-28-2008, 11:41 AM
Good luck everyone!
Just remember to treat these goals as a fun challenge. Any progress we make will be a step in the right direction.

Great attitude schmoodle Thank you!

01-28-2008, 11:48 AM
My Valentine's goal is 219 and to stay off the scales until then. I've become addicted to getting on them every day.

01-28-2008, 12:41 PM
Not sure what to say--my nutritionist has me avoiding the scale and weighing in with him, and he hasn't told me what I weigh, so... :shrug:

I'd say my next mini goal is to fit into a pair of regular size 18 jeans I have. :crossed: I can't say if that'll happen by V-day, but I'd love it if it did!

Pamatga, you might want to post your information in a separate, introductory post so that everyone can welcome you! The post in this thread might be lost and only seen by those who want to participate in this challenge. I'm glad things are going so well for you! I've found that the increase in the grocery bill is more than offset by how much less often we eat out and how little I go to fast food joints anymore. Hopefully it'll be that way for you, too.

My Goal By V-Day is to lose 10 lbs, I am on my 3rd day of Phase 1. I think I can do it!

01-29-2008, 04:58 PM
Great goals everyone we can do it...tomorrow will be 1 month on SBD!! 15lbs gone!

01-29-2008, 06:03 PM
Great job, Missinmysoldier78!

I'm starting P1 tomorrow, and my goal is 10 lbs by Valentine's day. I've been working out for about 5 months now, and my body fat % is better, but I have been eating really badly--tons of sugar--so I haven't really lost much weight.

01-29-2008, 07:05 PM
Hi I am on day 5 of phase 1. I would like to loose about 10 pounds from where I was 5 days ago. So my goal is 10 pounds.

01-29-2008, 07:57 PM
Cutting that sugar really helps. I love sweets but feel soo much better without the sugar and whites.

I am going to say that hopefully I will be able to lose the rest of my Feb goal by V-day. It is 4 pounds that I have left, if I exceed that then wonderful!

02-03-2008, 12:48 PM
I would love to be back below the 150s again. That will be my goal. :)
