Just out of curiosity what are everyones weight loss goals. Mine is to be able to fit in size four and wear high waisted pants.

Same- size four. My frame was meant for it, but years of regularly eating junk food has kept me from feeling my best. Not a very complicated reason or goal, but suits me fine.

Mine is a strictly a scale weight goal for now. My goal is 143 pounds which would place me in the middle of the healthy height to weight chart range.

I have no idea at all what size clothing that weight will bring because it has been Fifty (50) years since I last weighed 143 pounds

I am curious as what size pants and shirt I will fit when I reach that.

I have had a lot of goals and tweaked them a lot. I've gotten to the point where I feel very confident and happy with how I look and feel. I want to continue to get stronger but I am pretty happy. I wear a size 12 and weigh about 170. Just shy of losing 100 pounds. I should probebly go ahead and lose 100 pounds. That's a nice round number.

Man I have 190 to lose, I am just starting out. GO TEAM CYN!!! hahaha

I'd like to get to 146, half of my highest known weight, and in the middle of the healthy range for my height. Ideally, I'd like to be about a size 6, but I'm less concerned with the numerical size as opposed to getting fit and firm.

09-05-2011, 10:26 PM
my goal is to first hit 140 lb... then is like to see if I can fit in a size 6. that seems like a nice size to be. :-)

09-05-2011, 10:28 PM
For now? Roughly to eventually get out of the 200's. Maybe see a size 16.

More importantly, whatever I do end up losing, NEVER GAIN IT BACK AGAIN.

Even if I can "only" lose x number of pounds, I'd rather maintain x number of pounds lost while eating better and exercising than to be at 331 pounds not moving, not going out, and eating like crap.

Getting to a healthy BMI (so <155lbs) is definitely my most important goal. I'd also like to get to a 28 inch waist or under and hopefully end up in a size 8 or lower.

An exercise goal of mine is to eventually be able to deadlift my body weight that would be pretty cool! ;)

I also have the family motivation too. I'm finally wearing a size smaller than my MIL, which made me really happy! I'd like to not stick out when it comes to my extended family/friends many of whom are already at a healthy weight.

Oh, and I'm hoping to get pregnant again once I reach my goal and I want to not be fat when I'm pregnant again (I gave birth at 240lbs last time).

ETA: Big agreement with being able to maintain this weight. Obviously I'll gave through another pregnancy but I really want to work on losing it again ASAP after the pregnant and not put it off for years like I did this time.

I have a few goals :)

1st goal- to weigh 205 by my 4 yr anniversary on OCT 28th

2nd goal - to weigh 185 by Christmas Eve

3rd & final goal - to weigh 155 by St Patrick's Day

I can do it!:carrot:

I've changed my goal several times in the last few months as I continue to lose weight. I want to be 128 lbs/size 4.

To finally be able to say I lost 100 lbs. I am only 7 lbs away but these last few are the hardest. Also I am determined to be able to do one arm pushups in the very near future.

To weigh 125 lbs.
To wear something smaller than size 10/XL clothing.
To be able to fit into the types of clothes I want to wear - and look good in them.
To be small enough to do all the things I want to do with comfort and confidence (kayaking, traveling, backpacking, etc.).
To be small enough to be attractive to guys who aren't creeps or knuckledraggers.

Mine's firstly to get a healthy BMI. I've always been overweight/bigger than all of my friends, so I am curious (or more like dying) to see if I sam actually the big frame that I've always thought I am. Once I get to that magic 70kg (154 pounds), I'm going to work how much more I can lose. I think that that'll make me a size 10 Australian, seeing as I am currently 10kgs heavier and am am size 12/ small size 14.
I have a secret desire to be 65kg (143 pounds) or lighter by July next year when I go to a cousins wedding in Seattle.
I don't want to scary skinny, just nice healthy skinny

the biggest one is to be healthier and to be able to keep up with my active 7 year old.

In terms of weight/size, I'd like to be completely out of plus sized clothing, on the top and bottom, Right now, it's 1-2X tops and 16 misses bottoms. I'd like to be a 12-14 top and whatever size bottoms go along with that, since I wear such different sizes right now it's hard to know what that will be.

In terms of weight, 150 is what I remember being a good weight for me. It would, I think, get my chest back to a more manageable size.

I seem to keep sabotaging myself on my way there though, so I might need to go talk to someone to work on my insides, in addition to sticking with WW.

My goals are to lose 100 lbs, build muscle and tone up. I have never worked out the way I do now, so I know when I get closer to my "ideal" goal weight, my body will be different than before (I was 135 before having children).

09-06-2011, 10:40 AM
To be a average weight.
To attract more male attention.
To wear the cute clothes I like.

09-06-2011, 10:53 AM
Just want to be 145 by Christmas... yeah its a pretty aggressive goal but I think I can do it

09-06-2011, 01:39 PM
I want to see myself thin. I've never really been thin, never considered myself thin. I'm curious as to how I'll look. 150 will put me about twenty-five pounds thinner than I've ever been. I might try to get down to 140.

I also want to be able to do things outside without having to think about whether they're going to be too hard.

09-06-2011, 03:03 PM
my main goal is just keep losing... and not gain it back! I weighed myself today and I have lost 10 lbs! It feels great and I can't wait to drop another 10!

09-06-2011, 05:12 PM
I found an old doctors chart that said I was 62kg as a teen. I of course thought I was super fat at the time. I want to be that weight again. Ideally I would want to reach 60kg (132lbs) and then just maintain at 60-62kg (132-136lbs). But they always say.. The last 10 pounds are always hard to get rid off.

09-06-2011, 05:16 PM
To get back to being nice and slim, as I was in my teens and twenties.

09-08-2011, 05:24 PM
Well, my short-term goal is to lose about 12lbs, which would bring me down to 150. I'm at about 162 now, my highest ever. 150 is where I was for a few years, and even if I only achieved that I'd be happy.

Long-term, though, I'd like to be 125-135 like I was about 6 yrs ago. I was a teen, so of course I didn't appreciate how good I looked... I want to get back there and not take it for granted!
