Weight Loss Goals

1. Lose 10 pounds a month for six months; March through August

  • March- 10 lbs. lost YES!!!! 11.2 pounds lost
  • April- 10 lbs. lost No 😦 Only 8.2 pounds lost! Sad that I didn’t reach my goal, happy that I am now 8.2 pounds lighter! Yay me!
  • May- 10 lbs. lost No, I didn’t make this goal. For the second month in a row I lost 8.2 pounds. This is still a great number and I am still losing at a healthy rate so I am not upset I didn’t reach my goal.
  • June- 10 lbs. lost No, I didn’t reach the goal this month but my total monthly loss increased from the last two so that is a good thing 🙂 Total loss for June; 8.6 lbs
  • July- 10 lbs. lost Again, I didn’t reach the goal this month but I am happy to report my total monthly loss increased again 🙂 Total loss for July 8.8 lbs.
  • August- 10 lbs. lost Yes! I did it! I did it! Woo Hoo! I lost 13 pounnds in August! Sweet!

2. Lose 7 pounds a month for four months; September through December

  • Septmeber- Yes! I lost 10.6 pounds in September!
  • October- Yes! I lost 12.2 pounds in October!
  • November-Yes! I lost 12 pounds in November!
  • December-Yes! I lost 13.6 pounds in December. Take that holidays!

3. WW goal: 5% (14 pounds) weight loss. This is based off my starting WW weight of 280. Target date to 266; May 7th – Did not meet goal by May 7th. On May 7th my weight was 266.4- very, very close. *Reached this goal on May 14th.

4. WW goal: 10% (28 pounds) weight loss. This is based off my starting WW weight of 280. Target date to 252; June 18 – did not meet this goal by June 18th. On June 18th my weight was 255.6, 3.6 pounds from my target weight. *Officially reached this goal at the July 2nd WI! Yay!

***Hit 15% (42 pounds) weight loss when I weighed in at home 8/6. I wasn’t tracking to this goal but it is still a major accomplishment and I wanted to note it here.

5. Under 200 pounds (which is slightly unrealistic, but still something to work towards) by my birthday, January 9th, 2012 the end of 2011. I changed this because I am participating in a WW group trying to lose 50 pounds by the end of the year. When I joined I was just a few ounces below 250 so in order to meet that goal would put me just under 200 by New Years.

* I hit 199.5 on November 8th so I changed this goal to reach 100 pounds lost (weight of 186)  by the end of the year. I achieved this goal too when I hit 186 on December 14th and ended the year at 180.4 for a total loss in 2011 of 105.6 pounds!

6. My biggest goal, only because I truly have to bust my butt to get to this point, is to be able to shop at regular stores- size 12/14- by April 1, 2012

* I bought my first pair of 14s in November, 2011 and my first pair of 12s in December, 2011. I officially can shop at regular stores now. Yay!

7. Reach a healthy weight (anywhere between 120 and 150) in 2012

8. Maintain a healthy weight for the remainder of 2012

    I’m going to be copying this idea! It’s so great to be able to write your goals out and see yourself accomplish it!

      Thanks again! The accountability has definitely helped keep me on track so far. Plus it’s nice to see that I am making progress. At my weight it is hard to notice the pounds coming off because there is so much to lose.
