I have so many plans for this day that I would be here all night writing them down! Most importantly, I want to look in the mirror and say "Girl, you look hot, hot, hot"!!! And, secretly, I want to run in to that creepy ex and have him just stare in awe at what a fabulous, sexy woman he could've had! Then, be able to say, "sorry, you're too late"! :devil: :s:

In 65lbs I'll be there!

I live near the Grand Canyon, and my goal is to hike to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, then back out again. I probably won't get that done the day I reach goal, but I can seriously plan for it then!

THis is very hard for me. I rarely do anything for myself. Hence the long battle of weight. However I think it is very important. I think of that Jennie craig commercial. WHere the woman said that when she reached her goal she cried. I think that it would be something totally indulgent. A ME Day, A salon treatment. I don't know

Not to rain on anyone's parade here but why wait for the day you reach your goal to do some of these things? There are a lot of things that you can do now, you don't have to be skinny to do them.

Overweight women have manicures, nice clothes, lingerie and a lot of the other things listed here. I think it is a good idea to have something special in mind for that day but don't put your life on hold waiting for the scale to show a certain #. Live for today, who knows what tomorrow will bring.

I have to agree with Jen, I was gonna say about the same thing she did. Don't put off taking good care of yourself like spa days or manicures or buying nice lingerie, etc. if you can afford it!!
No matter your size, you feel sexier wearing cuter underwear and taking care of your nails, makeup, etc...

I like the question though of what you will for yourself though..maybe take a cruise!! (but I am taking one in June if I am at goal or not!!) :)
good luck to us all!!

You know, I started a thread like this once and it died right away because someone said the same things that Jen and Loralei said.

Of course I do agree with you girls, and do things now to reward myself, but I don't want to get too comfortable here at 196 lbs... I might not want to leave!! This is why I make goals for myself when I am 130.

gbo~ I LOVE your shopping fund idea!! :love: I'm thinking of putting in a $5 bill for every 5 I lose (and have lost), that way I will have $90 for sexy lingerie (after I get married) and maybe a dress! :o

Another thing I would like to do is to make a motivational website with before and after pictures in it... and some of the after pictures will be...

Glamour shots!! Or some professional photos taken of me and my fiance!

Hmm... I know I have more... I will come back and post later! Gotta exercise now!!!

By the end of today, I will be one day closer to my goal!!

Well, to plan ahead to create the picture to see it in your mind helps to make it real. The body follows the mind you know! Mine has followed oh so well...the thoughts of food and now it follows the again to joy. My friends I was not supposed to weigh until tomorrow so this is an unoffical thing that I am more shocked at than you can inmagine! I am om Thermo blast from body building .com and purely protein..... I started fully on the eighth so week one ......I have lost a total of 20 lbs. It will slow considerabley I know but what a start , that includes the five lbs I lost four days before I "Offically" started in earnest.
From the eighth I have lost.........15 lbs. I am just amazed!!!!!!!!!!
The marker is just in front of me that has stimied me all along the 315 mark. That 15 has blocked me so many times but it won't this time no matter how long it takes!!!!!!!
I "Offically started (in earnest) aat 333 lbs
I now weigh....................................318
when I first posted it was 338 and that makes 20. Now comes the hard work. I cook for my family but I don't clean up. Before it's cooked no real temtation but once cooked I run!!!!!!
I will not eat fruit and there are pears straight from our tree in my kitchen....oh how good they look! Still........I know that will stop me dead on my weight loss. It's just not worth it. I am off to make a big omelet, something different today and so tasty!

Just a start but to cool to me!

Hi! Great thread! I have made a few "short term goals" I am on the Atkins Plan and have taken off 32 pounds as of today! (Yippeeeee!) Once I reach a 50 pound loss....I am heading to the ice-cream parlor and rewarding myself with a double scoop toasted almond fudge ice cream sugar cone! :devil:

When the scale clicks to under 200......(You will know when it happens as you will DEFINATELY hear me scream from here in Pittsburgh, PA..regardless of where YOU are from! I am going to purchase one small bag each of plain, peanut, and almond M & M's....line them up in a lovely pattern and eat every one of them while NAKED!!!

When I get to goal...(I can not decide on a "number" yet as I am 5'9" and will be happy in a size 14 jeans-anything less than that will be a bonus)......when I do reach my goal......I will cry for one hundred reasons...both happy and sad.....and I will be ME again. Not this woman who has been wearing this fat suit that does not belong to her.

Thank you for sharing..and letting me vent. (Try the dream thread on this site...it is also very nice!) I hope we all get to our goals! I took my name 25 Hopeful because hubby and I will be taking a cruise for our 25th anniversary in September 2003 and I want to be maaaarvelous!

25_HOPEFUL: you said something about being in a "fat suit" that made me think of something...

when all my excess weight is gone, i want to fill up a back pack with 90 pounds of something and carry it around for a little while just to remember what a struggle i have gone through...

i saw this great picture of Oprah at her goal weight pulling a little red wagon with a huge slab of red cow meat and bones.. i'm assuming it weighed what she lost.

Just found this thread..never saw it as I was most likely MIA :devil:

I believe that we all should take care of ourselves and pamper ourselves always, despite what we weigh.

BUT the day I reach goal....I said this a long time ago...I will put on a bikini nomatter what the weather and will run down the street screaming "Kiss my booty cause am skinny!!!!!!!"

heehee I am serious. And then I will drive my car (in my bikini) and go pay a visit to every person that ever hurt me, every woman I despised, and then I will keep the last one special...go visit my ex and show him what he could have had. And hopefully his lil girlfriend is HUGE. (sorry, I tend to have a mean streak at times)

That is what am doing..and then am throwing myself a huge party and inviting everyone I know. A little drastic, maybe, but after the last 2 years of my life...I am gonna need it. Or maybe just a cruise..to some island where every man will drool....over me.


:devil: :devil: :devil: :cool: :s: :s: :s:

I missed this one too.

I have it all planned out. Yes, I will buy the wardrobe I've always dreamed of. The kind of clothes I want to wear don't look nice at my size.

BUT, I have always planned that on the day I reach goal, I am walking into my hair salon and having her take it all off. Short, really short. Halle Berry short. And then I am going platnum blonde. I even keep my hair on the long side now, so that it will be more drastic then. I am constantly saving pictures of short hair cuts!! To have a neck will be my greatest achievement!!
