South Beach Diet - Do you have a goal date? When is your goal date?
10-21-2010, 03:10 PM
My goal date may be a bit ambitious considering, but I hope to reach goal by 7/5. I would have to lose 154lbs by then. As a reward, I'm visiting my Aunt in New York and I want her to be wowwed by my loss. If I don't make it in July, I've set it for September around Labor Day.

I have my weight graph goal in Fitday set for 7/1/11 for a time line-so it knows how much I need to lose to make that amount.
So far my actual is going along well with the forecasted line. But the world will not end(or my diet willnot end)if it is not going as fast as I want.
The important thing is I am taking charge-not letting things slide. Time goes on without my control. I can only control my actions that can produce a positive result. And in 2 weeks I should be under 200 lbs, a number I have not seen in ten years.

I have several dates in my head as goals. A big one is I'd like to be under 200lbs by my anniversary, which is March 13.

I have goal dates in my head as well but to be honest I hardly ever make goal dates lol I dont let that get me down but Id like to be at 180 come June 1 2010 that would be awesome 45lbs I think its doable but I lose so slow :(

My 30th birthday is on May 12/11. I want to give myself the gift of 199 by then. I spent my 20s going up and down and hitting a high of 279.8. I finally feel like this isn't a struggle and that I can reach it.
At that point, I will figure out my ultimate goal. Its been SO LONG since I've been 199, that I can't really tell where my final goal should be until I evaluate where I am once I've lost some of this weight! I am thinking approx 175. I had a body fat test done a few years ago and was surprised to learn that due to high lean muscle mass, my ideal weight is 168-185 based on body fat, so mid to high 170's would have me right in the ideal 18-25% BF range for women. That I'd like to reach by Dec 31/2011 as that will be my 5 year wedding anniversary. These dates may be not as ambitious as I could be, but I don't want to set myself up to fail by not accounting for potential plateaus etc.

I'm aiming somewhat ambitiously- but I would like to be 140 on my 5 year wedding anniversary June 24th, 2011
167 by New Year's, 115 by mid July

For the first time in a very long time my New Year's Resolution won't be to "Loose some weight". :carrot:

Heidi, I was thinking that very same thing!
um...I'm kind of stalling this month, but I think that was due to my cycle being kind of screwy due to my IUD...I think that is resolving itself, so hopefully I'll return back to regularly scheduled losing here pretty soon :)
That being said, I would like to be 170-ish by my 5-year anniversary on Dec. 20, 2010. That is 14 lbs. That might be kind of optimistic with the holidays coming up, but a girl can dream.

Ditto Heidi and Zeff....although my resolution will be to continue to lose weight :)
I have no idea what my goal date is. I do want to lose 16 by the end of the year, that way I'll be 175...I can do it!! I already lost part of that so...I guess I only have 13.8 lbs to go...yippee!! Now...focus, focus, focus!

I have finally set a mini goal of 135 by Christmas. After that I will decided the next one.

My first small goal is 220 by New Year's. My major goal is to reach 170 (or hopefully lower, but 170 is the main goal) by July 2011. My friends want to take me to Comic-Con next year and if I can lose some weight and get some biceps, I plan to dress up like Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica. Because I'm a giant geek.
ChubbyBunny -you and I are in about the same weight ballpark and age and 199 is going to be a BIG deal for me too. I haven't been 199 since...I don't even know, probably junior high. Even 220 is a big deal to me.
