What are your weight loss goals till then? 66lbs for me! Ambitious yes, impossible no!

Um, well I have a mini goal of 249 by November 1. I'm going on a cruise and seeing my sister who I haven't seen in almost a year. But I would say my new year's goal would be 229. That would have me lighter than I have ever been since I've been with my husband.

Then comes the big goal of 199 by my 30th bday in May!

I want to be under 200 lbs, so that means about 33 lbs and I'm there. I feel like it is attainable. Good luck to you on your goals!

I just started phase 1 today. My first goal is to make it through phase one without cheating. I'd be over the moon if I lost 25lbs by the end of the year!! If I dropped that amount I'd be back in onederland which I haven't seen in six years. Good Luck everyone.

My goal by the New Year is to be 175. I weighed in at 191 this morning...so that's only 16 more lbs. Eek!! That is TOTALLY attainable!! How exciting! That means I need to lose about 1.3 lbs a week for the next 12 weeks. Oh yeah, totally doable! :)

I would like to be at a healthy BMI - 164 lbs. That makes just about 20 lbs. for me. Pretty attainable.

My goal is also to be at a healthy BMI by the start of the new year.
I started a few weeks ago and things are going a little more slowly than I'd hoped but I should still be there by 12/31.

I want to be under 150 lbs, so I'll make a goal of 30 lbs.

Lord, that's a scary number for 12 weeks.

I'll be the third to post that I'd like to break out of the 200's by New Year's... I haven't weighed under 200 since 9th grade, so I'm incredibly excited at the prospect of making it!!!

I would love to weigh 135 by then. Or possibly 133 that way I could say that in 1 year I lost 52 pounds in 52 weeks.

Best of luck to all of y'all.

My DH and I have decided to go the SBD way, and plan to start phase 1 by the end of the week (mainly because I need to plan the menu) I would love to at least be down 15 or 20 by then, and firmly planted in the new lifestyle.

Thanks for the reminder, wheee!! It seems so possible!!

Thanks for the reminder, wheee!! It seems so possible!!

I agree! My goal weight was set at the beginning of the year, so I would love to lose another 9-10 lbs by the end of the year. It's not likely since it took me 9 months to lose 12 lbs, but I'll see what I can accomplish in the right direction.

So that's 3 lbs each month until :newyear:

Thanks for the :kickbutt:

Wow - I'm amazed at the aggressive goals! I hope you all make them!!

I know that my last 20 lb. could take a very long time for me, and I've already experienced a month long plateau during this past summer. After going through that and seeing that my body needed a break to adjust before it was ready to lose again, I'm not so goal-oriented with numbers. With that in mind, I'm thinking I'll be happy if I lose another 5 lb. between now and the new year. Slow and steady for me!

Since I am seeming to have such issues, I would like to just be under 200 by then... thats about 12 little lbs. I know I can do it- but I have lost my umph. Here is some :dust: I am going to bathe in it!!!!!

lazylioness
10-05-2010, 02:18 PM
40lbs total lost is the goal. I am shooting for 10 lbs a month. A bit ambitious but I am getting married in July and I refuse to weigh over 200lbs on that day!

20 lbs :D It would be a big milestone for me to be 125 would make me 100 pounds from highest to lowest

leeshalulu
10-05-2010, 05:06 PM
I have 36 more pounds to lose in order to bust through to onederland! But, I will be happy continuing my 2 pound per week loss! That will put me around 210.:goodluck:

I would LOVE to lose 30 pounds by the new year. :)

I wanna lose 12 more pounds and get down to 127. I'm 139 as of today (first time I've seen the 130s for 2 years!!) 12 pounds, 12 weeks, totally doable. :-)

Natasha1534
10-06-2010, 09:34 PM
My goal for the New Year is to lose another 22 pounds so that I can say that I lost 100 pounds this year. I'm averaging 10 - 12 pounds per month (except last month when I gained 5 pounds and plateaued before FINALLY losing them plus 2 more pounds) so it should be doable. Woot woot...100 pound milestone, here we come!!!

My goal is to make it to or below my current goal weight of 170 by New Year's. That's only about 20 pounds, so if I stay on track and get my butt back in the gym I might just make it.

Heidi58
10-12-2010, 06:22 AM
Scary is right, Ruth! :lol:
I picked a doozy of a time to push for that last 20 pounds, eh?
(This thread is for the 3 month period? Or just October? I guess I'll cover all my bases...)

5 lbs/month for me. 15 by the end of the year.

I'm terrified of Thanksgiving. I'm thinking about signing up for a 5k or something that day just so I don't feel bad about indulging.

Halloween is not a big worry for me. I get sick of candy pretty quickly.

Now Christmas, hrm. We're going up to visit my parents for the holidays and staying for 2+ weeks. I'm trying to line up a visitor pass to a local gym up there because the last time that i went up there and didn't work out is when I fell off the wagon and didn't get back on for 2 years. I can't let that happen this time.

It worries me how just thinking about this can make me almost physically ill. gaining back this weight is one of the scariest things I have ever encountered.

that being said, this weight is moving like molasses. I would be happy with 5 lbs. a month, but would like to be in the 160's for the Christmas season which is 15 lbs. away.

p.a.
10-12-2010, 11:55 AM
I would really really like to stretch myself to get to 250 by Christmas...its a HUGE loss but Id like to get as close to it as possible.

EmmaD
10-12-2010, 12:13 PM
My goal by the end of the year is to.... <drumroll>... make my end-of-the-year goal, haha.

Which is about 8 lbs away. Hard to tell since my weight bumped up from some off-plan indulgences last night :(

Goal: -8 lbs by 12/31/10 and start 2011 @ MAINTENANCE!

10-12-2010, 02:15 PM
I have a goal for January 7th 2011 which is a dinner dance we go to of 20 pounds

jyoyo78
10-12-2010, 02:29 PM
There actually was a thread started for this....call 3 months until 1/1/2011, where a lot of people had entered their end of the year goals...maybe we could mesh the two threads somehow?

My end of the year goal is to be down 16 lbs. That's a little over a pound a week, so I think it's totally doable!!! Just gotta kick my exercise into gear here....even a low gear would be more than I'm doing now! lol

chubbybunny29
10-12-2010, 02:37 PM
I think its a great idea! I just cooked a Canadian Thanksgiving dinner this weekend (I'm a Canadian living in the US) and after some bread and pie, etc, I know I need all the support I can get to make it through!

I'm worried about a cruise we have in November, and Thanksgiving. Christmas will be fine I think as my mother in law makes steak and spinach salad for Christmas dinner :)

I am hoping for 5 lbs this month and each month after that. Then I would only be 8 lbs away from goal to start the New Year (and 15 lbs lighter!).

10-12-2010, 04:48 PM
My goal for the end of the year is to be under 235. Preferably around 230. YIKES.

rdw1
10-12-2010, 05:17 PM
I just want to be back under 200! UGH! lol, thats only 12lbs for me, but the rate I have been going at it will never happen! and thats only like less than a lb a week! but hey, thats my goal!


I vote a New Years goal.

redautumn
10-13-2010, 01:56 PM
My goal by January is to be down to 130 lbs. That is 12 lbs. That is 1-2lbs a week. Hoping I can get there.

Ruthxxx
11-02-2010, 07:56 AM
Bumping this up for today and will then make it a sticky.
Could we please keep this thread just for stating our goals? No comments needed.

My goal is to finally be in the 180s. Even 189.6 will do!

Kim_Star060404
11-02-2010, 09:29 AM
I'm shooting for a 10-lb. loss between now & January 1. That'll get me down to 191. It's going to be TOUGH because this is our year to travel for the holidays and that means LOTS of food and not a lot of exercise, especially during Christmas. :yikes:

TallandThin
11-02-2010, 01:25 PM
I'm dreaming of a goal of 15 more pounds gone by the end of the year which would put me at 270 and I plan to make that dream come true!

Hoping to reach my overall goal of 140. That is 19 lbs as of yesterday.

BelovedK
11-02-2010, 02:34 PM
I'm going to hover around 140 by new years :carrot: (<---advance carrot) hahah

if not lower ;)

Wow for January hmm?
Is it weird I'm not really working towards a goal right now? I have this vague idea of being skinnier for my trip in March, but I haven't aimed at specific-ness.

So January 1, 2011... that is roughly 7-8 weeks. I would LOVE to be under 200 lbs. That is 32 lbs from now though. It's probably too close for THAT but to be as close as possible!

So let's shoot for 20 lbs down. Let's shake a fist at those holidays and cry, "Fie! Fie I say!" :D

jandaman
11-05-2010, 06:43 AM
would like to be at least 10 lbs lighter...

but secretly harboring the same wish as ladywyyn...just too chicken to say it out loud

11-06-2010, 11:42 PM
I would be absolutely thrilled to lose 15 lbs by yr end (which is halfway to my goal). That would put me at 160 which I haven't seen for about 4 yrs.

Mmckellen
11-08-2010, 06:18 PM
I'm going to just look at getting to 160 and maintaining until after the holidays.

FiberMama
11-11-2010, 05:23 AM
and I would like to loose 20 lbs. by 01 January. Hopefully more, but 20 lbs. is my goal.

22 pounds is nothing to sniff at Okie! Congratulations on your loss! :broc:

I'd hoped to loose 5 lbs a month and be at a normal BMI (140) by tomorrow morning. I'm at 141.5 today though so it's not likely I'll make it.

I am not even close but am lost the December pounds. Two deaths and then Christmas kind of threw me for a loop.
