My Goal is?

Some day .. I'd like to get back to my highschool weight 120 ( I can't believe I thought I was fat then!!) I'm up to 152 pound now! On a 5 foot 3 inch body that's pretty darn chubby!

I know ME though. If I make the goal 32 pounds at the beginning I'll quit ! So.. for now I'm making my goal 20 pounds. Even that will make a great big difference about how I feel and look! The good and bad thing about being short is that you can really see every pound you put on and take off.

smiles, Trish

My goal is to firm my body, particularly my stomach. I think my eating habits are fine for me. The way I hope to achieve this is by doing crunches for my abs, and side bends for my obliques. I will also use my stationary bike for aerobics, and will begin lifting weights at home. I just bought a scale yesterday, so I will wait until tomorrow (tuesday to weigh myself). I am 5'3 and my average weight was 130-140 lbs., so we'll see tomorrow how much I weigh. I am not so concerned about losing weight as I am about firming/toning my body. Typically when I worked out, I gained muscle weight, but was very toned. I dont have a tape measure to check how many inches I lose, but maybe it's time to get one huh? :D

So thats my goal, to get toned all over, and especially in my abdomen.

pdswife1, you can do it!

I am 5 ft 2 inches, started watching what I eat and working out last year (mid Jan). My start weight was about 180 and now I'm down to about 140. I used to wear about 12/14 pants, now down to a size 6.

My motto, just nickle and dime the pounds off...little by little. Best way to go. :)

Forums like this is a great way to keep supporting one another.

Long range, I would like to lose 90 pounds. Short range, 20. My husband and I are going to be working on it together.

My goal is to get fit.

Scales make me unhappy, if I lose inches from my waist...I'll be very happy!!!
