08-10-2005, 11:42 AM
Even though those "kiss em goodbye" goals are major for me (you know, the 260s, the 250s, etc.) I decided to come up with some more meaningful goals to put in my siggy.
263: Starting point
253: 1st 10 pounds
244: Less than 100 pounds to lose
237: First 10% goal
231: Below where I was when I gave up my last diet/exercise plan
211: 2nd 10% goal
184: 3rd 10% goal
168: Below my last "normal-feeling" weight
158: 4th 10% goal
145: ULTIMATE GOAL!
140: Icing on the cake goal

Maggie I LOVE :love: Mini Goals. I haven't actually thought much about mine since I gave up WW on my own in Jan and tried a couple other plans. HMMMM?! What would my mini goals be? I am gonna count from my current starting weight, but there are a couple that I'd add in from my original starting weight in September.
194:that is my lowest I've seen since I started losing weight in September I want to see it again, which also happens to be 30 pounds from my original starting weight.
191: my 1st 10%
180: 10% as of 191
174: 50 pounds from my original starting weight
150: where I was when I met my husband and he thought I was 130 and will argue with me about it
162: 50 pounds from my current starting weight
140: where I was when I tried my first diet and thought I was so fat it was sickening
135:Ultimate goal. This is the weight I was when I was in Jr. High. It seems a bit too low to me as I was NOT fat in Jr. High, just very muscular. I think I would be happy at 150 if I had the same low percentage of body fat as I did back then.

This is good because they say we need to change our thinking in to that we can do this and achieve our goals! Right now I just am working on getting to my 10% goal. Is anyone else scared because when you reach it everyone at the meeting will know how much you weighed? My meeting has a lot of smaller people. I am one of the biggest even at ww :cry: This can be discouraging. But hey I will never weigh this much again! I pray.

Hey, luflic--some of those "smaller" people may have already lost a lot of weight. You just never know. Plus, at least at my meetings, everyone is so supportive, regardless of size.
Beginning weight = 182
Beginning WW weight = 175.6
my first 10% & BMI within healthy range = 164
WW 10% = 158
Overall goal = 155 (I think)

Oh, Luflic.... "smaller" people OWN the rest of the freakin' world. Our WW meetings is one place where we do not have to feel uncomfortable about our weight.

My mistake in the past was looking at the whole amount of weight I needed to loose, so I'm doing it different this time. I'm going by 10 lb increments. I think for me thats better, cause it seems a whole lot easier to loose 10 lbs 7 times, than 70 lbs.
My short term goals:
Starting Weight - 270
1st 10lb goal - 260 - July 4th - achieved July 10th
2nd 10lb goal - 249 - August 10 - I didn't make it, but I'm almost there!! :)
I don't set my next 10 lb goal until that weigh in day when I've actually gotten there.
My 1st long term goal
200 lbs by Dec 1, 2005.
When I set that goal, I just picked a date, I have a feeling I'll need to readjust that date but my goal is to get to 200 lbs again. I want to see what I look like at a toned 200 lbs and what size I am. Ultimately I just want to be a size 13/14 or so. I don't want to HAVE to shop at LB or the plus size department. I know a 14 isn't that small of a size, but I'm realistic. With my body type, there is no way I'm going to be a size 5, and I'm ok with that. I'm kinda tall, I have large hands, large feet, large breasts, and a large butt. I just would not look normal being that small.
I was 175 - 180 when I graduated high school. The dress I wore to graduation was a size 14. If I can wear that dress and be 200 lbs... lol thats fine with me :) Besides I have a whole wardrobe of size 14 - 16 clothes that I want to wear again, and I have quite a few things that still have the tags on them that I want to wear for the first time.
:lol: I guess I was a little wordy... lol sorry for the long post!
