Two weeks you guys! OMG! Anybody freaking out yet? I have most of my shopping done. What about you guys? How are your goals going?

I'm almost done with shopping. Just need to get my bf his things. But I already know what I'm getting him, so it shouldnt be too hard.

As for my goals, blech!! I haven't been good, but you know me, I'm always trying. I really do have to try harder though. especially after this week. I think there's a "novena" every night until christmas. you gather at someone's house, sing, and eat. phew, that's gonna be a lot of food!

oh my god, I probably at 6000 calories this weekend :( and next weekend is probably only going to be the same.

My shopping.... I dunno, getting there.

As for my goal... uhh.... 5 pounds away I think, I need to change ticker... anyway I don't think its gonna happen :(

I have lots of shopping left to do, I have to wait until my last payday before christmas to shop. I do have some of it done, but I always panic at this time of year. I made it a little easier on my meager budget and told my sisters and mom that all the gifts for the kids will be under $5.00; I will get them thoughtful, but inexpensive gifts. DH has a younger brother and 2 nieces and nephews who are SPOILED ROTTEN so I have yet to convnce him that they too are getting $5.00 gifts, oh well we'll see what happens. I have gotten clothes for my kids, but no toys yet. I am very excited for christmas to be over.

As for my goal?? I would like to be in the 150's by the first of year, but at the rate I am losing I may have to settle for next year :( Okay its my fault, I have been making poor choices, but that changes TODAY!!!!! I am fully emerging myself into my healthy eating/planning/sticking to my plan lifestyle. I loved the way I felt when I said: No I don't eat that anymore. Boy it is so easy to slip back to the old ways.

I don't think my goal is going to happen by Christmas so I am making it a new years goal. This weekend was horrible and the next 2 are going to be just as bad. Heck, I think I will settle for not gaining any.

I'm still pushing for it, I have 5 pounds to go in 2 weeks though, so that will be tough. I stay home most of the time and haven't had to hit any parties so I'm lucky as far as that goes, right? :) I may lose it now but I bet I gain 10 pounds in the 12 days i'm down south over Christmas. Eep. :)

I think I'm going to have to make my Christmas goal my New Year's goal too. TOM started yesterday and he totally screwed me on my WI this morning.

I cannot wait to get myself organized, I feel SO disorganized these days... its bad when you look around your house and your todo list could take up 2 pages! I have thursday off to accomplish some of this though :)

My weight loss seems to be on hold, I am maintaining.. better than gaining!

Courtnie - 50.4 lost? Wowsers lady! Congrats!

All my shopping is done since November... and I am all set... I just have to do my grocery shopping next week! :) Wooohoooo Santa is almost coming! :carrot:

Aimee - thanks! they are pics in the mini goal picture thread.

I got so much done last night it was insane, I spent all night running around the house, felt good to get so much done though. We bought a BEAUTIFUL tree on the weekend and I set that up on Saturday, it is so beautiful! I love it!

I actually got the scale this morning and it was down .4 from the weekend, no idea how that is possible with how much I ate but I hope it keeps dropping like that - then I might make my xmas goal.

I have set my final date, I want to be 130 for my 22nd Birthday (july 23, 06) and I want to be 145 by the end of march (might be pushing that, but im gonna try).

Ive done some shopping. Im going tonight to get my boyfriends present, he is getting a 20 inch widescreen LCD computer monitor haha.

Aimee--------LOVE your new avatar!! :)

Also, this thread was by NO MEANS a challenge thread that would have a "winner" but......Ms. Courtnie I think has been doing the best........ I think we may have to watch out for her because she may just be disappearing before our very eyes...............;)

Courtnie - how much did that monitor cost? I'm trying to find a semi decent wide screen for Josh, the one I had on hold was SOLD and they cannot replace it... mostly because they don't even KNOW which one it was. So annoying, I'm going to check out Staples on Friday to see what I can find.

I have also been done my christmas shopping for a while, altho I do have some last minute stuff to pick up this weekend.. mainly for my bf. We always save eachother for last.

I dunno about that, lol.

Aimee - it was $350 plus tax. Then I added a DVI cable ($50) and 4 year warrenty ($75), it came to just under 600 - $580 or something. It seems like a good one, it is only sold at futureshop, it is LG 20.1" widescreen with a contrast ratio of 2000:1 (apparently really good) - all the rest were 700:1. Just a tip, do 17, 19 or 20 - each one has a higher resolution, but like 22 has the same resolution as 20, so you might as well just get a 20. I was looking at a 22 (with the crapy contrast ratio) and it was 500$... but anyway let me know if you need any more help.

Courtnie - I think I found one as well! There is one at my work, but its got speakers attached to it... so I'm not too impressed. I found one at bestbuy, 19 inch widescreen, acer brand, and it's got some DVI cable. The only unfortunate thing with it is that it's silver, I think Josh would prefer a black one. But with what I'm looking for the only black one thats doable is a step down from that silver one. We'll see, I'm going to go out and see what stores have on Friday. I'm looking MUCH cheaper than you, the 19 inch silver widescreen is only 269.99, and the black one is 229.99.

I cannot believe how sore my body is from just work, I haven't been exercising lately... yesterday morning I woke up and my inner thighs were sore. From standing in one place and a little walking... go figure! Today it's my entire thighs and arms.. SO weird!


12-13-2006, 06:30 PM
okay, I have decided....

If I make 130 by July 23 2007 I am going out on that day and buying myself a beautiful ring - tanzinite and diamond. I think, what better way to remind yourself of the hard work then looking at a nice ring on your finger? ;)

maybe ill get myself another puppy too.... haha

Isn't shopping for Christmas the part where you walk into Wal*Mart and Applebees and buy gift certificates? Ok then...yup, count me in as done. LOL

We're doing good to get moved into our new house and off on vacation by Monday and STILL managed to get Christmas cards mailed out yesterday.

I just may reach my Christmas goal thanks to this little stomach virus I have had this week. I lost 4 lbs. this week and that is after having a really big weekend last week (lots of eating and drinking).
Just 10 more days to go and I have not done any shopping. I think I will give everyone cash.

12-15-2006, 02:29 PM
oh i'd love to join this discussion. I have not hardly started my christmas shopping yet. the only real shopping i've gotten done is my boyfriends because i bought alot of his stuff online or on ebay. I am doing my kids shopping this weekend. I prefer doing mine the week of christmas because i am in such a great christmas spirit then. :)

As for the weight loss....i am really just getting started. I am trying with the holidays to figure out my gym nights. they just seem to keep changing from week to week and day to day. and food....i haven't had time yet to really figure that one out. i'm home half the week and at my boyfriends the other half. but after christmas, i promise myself i am going to start walking at work again on my lunch break (i'm finally going to get a new mp3 player so i can listen to music while i walk) and go 3 if not 4 nights a week to the gym for an hour. i may even splurge in feb. when i get my income taxes and hire a trainer for a month or so. I really want to look good by summer. I am thrilled with the weight i have lost, but i have much more to go. and i definately want my boyfriend to feel he is getting his moneys worth out of the gym membership he is getting me for "ONLY" 6 months. but maybe if i show good results, if i still need it, he'll keep paying for it. we'll see.
