OMG - I bought a new scale today & it's saying I weigh some SO different than what my old scale said. I can't even wrap my mind around it right now so I'll figure it out later. I just had to share my horror.

Smile 2009 Goals

My 2009 Goals:

Weight: Currently, I weigh 178ish but would like to get down to 150 or less. I really want to feel healthy so that my hubby and I can start a family.

Pants/Dress Size: size 16 but really want to be able to wear single digits

Organization (home vs work/school): I am going to clean one room a day so that I don’t have to spend hours cleaning during the weekends.

Nutrition: I really need to watch my sweets so I would like to discover healthy alternatives. My diet needs to include more fruits and veggies. Calorie counting is how I plan to keep my portions under control.

Time with family/friends: I would like to plan a date night once a month. I need to email and call my out of town friends more often.

Water intake:
I really dislike water so I am going to start off with only 20oz a day and increase it throughout the year.

Exercise / fitness level:
Plan on going to the gym 4 to 5 times a week workout for ½ and eventually increase to 1 hour per session.

Pampering/relaxation: Oh, I love to get pedicures so I think that will be a reward for every 10 pounds lost. I also want to take better care of my hair with regular trims and maybe a deep conditioning treatment?

Another part of this challenge: editing and defining my goals. I took my measurements in November for another challenge. I took them again this morning. All I can say is the tags worked. I didn't drop a lot of weight. I did make a new "decade" though. But the journal and tags did the trick. Here is what the tale of the tape says

Midrif 40 ~~~ 38 1/4
waist 42 1/2~~ 39
hips 48~~~~~ 47

I will start this challenge with the new set of measurements and work like heck to get my waist at the least 35, smaller if I can, but first mini goal is 35.

Ladies... can I just tell you what kind of emotional roller coaster ride I was on yesterday!?!? I got the new scale & it was telling me that I weighed 10 lbs. more than I thought I weighed. So then the rest of the night I had a pity party. I ate whatever without thinking. Then today I got over it & told myself I needed to knock it off & get those 10 lbs. off. I'd just start new & mean it. SO I worked out for an hour & a half to work on those old tags. After I was all tired and worn out I took a nice long shower. Then I decided I would weigh myself again on both the old & new scale & figure out exactly how much I was off. Now, I've said it before & I will say it again, SCALES ARE EVIL. My old scale said I weight 222 (OK - so I put on 1.5 lbs. over the last week) and the new scale said 224. It's only 2 lbs. off!!! !!!!

Are we supposed to have a goal for each of those categories, or could I do more than one goal for one category and none for some?

The categories are just to give you ideas to have for goals. YOu can pick and choose whatever you want as your goals - it's you that has to reach them!

I would like everyone to post a starting weight and a goal weight for the year though... it helps me in my tracking.

On another note - I got the Jillian Michaels Ultimatum 2009 game with a Wii for Christmas and OMG - SHE'S GOING TO KILL ME!!! - I know I'm completely OUT OF SHAPE (well technically round is a shape)... BUT WOW!!! I did 10 minutes just to test it out and I WAS BEAT!! I'm going to love it!
