  • Many people begin their quest for a better body after the New Year. Since we were smart enough to start this dieting venture long before that, what resolutions will we be setting for ourselves?

    I participated in the Couch to 5K in 9 weeks running program before I began counting calories. While I was eventually able to run for 30 minutes straight, my speed never increased. Basically, I was walking really fast. While I still walk on the treadmill, I stopped trying to run about the time I started on the diet. Now that the dieting is working, I would like to take up the running again. I am going to register for the Disney 5K which takes place in May 2007. You have to be able to run a 15 minute mile. I have four months to whip my body into shape.

    That's my goal. How about you guys?
  • I think for me I am going to look for more NSV's than the number on the scale. Also, working out more than twice a week and being able to feel comfortable in public.

    I have a pair of jeans I am dying to fit into - my goal is to get into those.
  • My resolution is to get to the fitness center 12 times a month. Well, in order for my health insurance to pay $20 of my membership fee, I have to do this. It used to be eight times but will go to twelve times starting January 2007.

  • To regularly run races and build up to a Marathon, and to stay off the cigarettes.
  • To get out of the plus sizes!
  • Wow, look at all those running-related resolutions. Well, in that case, let me add my own - I want to run in an official 5k and 10k race this year. I've recently completed the C25K program and am running regularly on my own, so I think doing a race is a good next step, and it will keep me motivated to train.
  • to reach onederland by my next docto'rs appointment which is in March. My Endo read me the riot act in september about my weight, danger of getting diabetes, etc.
  • My weight goals:

    _To continue eating a healthy diet and remain in control.
    -To reach be at 199 lbs by March 5, or depending on how the next 2 weeks go, by Valentine's Day.
    -To be at my overall goal, somewhere in the 120's, on or better yet before my 44th birthday, Novemeber 12.
    -To keep on increasing my exercising.

    Wishing us all good luck in attaining our goals.
  • Good goals everyone! Way to keep motivated on your weight-loss journey!

    I was surprised to see so many running goals included. I started running/walking intervals this week and will be starting the C25K program soon. Cheers!
  • My New Year's resolution is to start 2007 at 155 lbs! Bob Harper (the trainer on Biggest Loser) told the audience "Don't wait til January 1st -- you can do it TODAY!" and I loved that. My other resolution is not to buy a lot of "diet" desserts anymore. I have found that those can trigger binges as well as being calories that don't provide any real nutrition. Oh, and PS - they are SO expensive! I'd rather spend the money on fresh fruit or new clothes than donate it to the Weight Watchers & Skinny Cow people
  • 2007 New Year Resolutions

    Learn to eat healthier-eat more veggies (yuck)

    Me and my sisters want to run a marathon summer of 08 so i want to get into shape to be able to do that.-start running every week

    Stop procrastinating!!! (its a bad habit that has been really hurting me this year) and be more dedicated to working hard in school.

    umm... thats all for now.
  • I would like to reach my goal by March ( as long as I don't eat my face off over Christmas, HA HA HA). I only have a few lbs to go. I think I can do it.

    In 2007,
    I will exersice regularily,
    I will eat healthy,
    I will drink plenty of water,
    I will be proud of myself not matter how I do.
  • My goals sound pretty whimpy compared to some, but I have not ran since I was in track in high school. So my goal is to able to run a mile, I know it's not much but that is a biggie for my arthritic body! My other resolution is to obliterate the double chin!!
  • I think my goal for 2007 is just to keep going. I haven't lost weight at the rate some impressive people can achieve, but I also haven't ended any weeks at a higher weight than the week before, so that is a trend I intend to continue!
  • I'm not sure how well my goal is going to sound.

    I would like to be able to take a long walk without getting winded. I would like to reach 199 at least.

    Quit fast food eating, and be happy in life.
