    It feels like a monster goal, not a mini one, but my next powerlifting competition is in less than a month. My deadlift goal? 400 lbs. :o

    You can do this!

    My goal is to squat 135 lbs by the end of the year.

    How close are you now? And I know I could dig it up somewhere.

    I'm still shooting for 220 (weight, not lifting or anything). Got close this morning (220.7).

    There is this book I really want to read but I promised myself not to buy it before I am under 85 kg (about 3 kg away now...). I had this goal before and I won't let go until I am there...

    To weigh what I did when I got pregnant. I had lost a bunch of weight before I got pregnant but I still wasn’t at my goal. Pre-pregnancy weight: 150, CW: 164.

    I have an appointment on January 11th for my annual checkup with my general practitioner. Last year, he pretended to be excited that I had lost 8 lbs between January 2015 and December 2015. I weighed 234 at the end of December 2015, and my goal is to get down to 184 by my January 11 2017 appointment. That would be a 50-lb loss and I think he would be excited for real! I'm at 192-193 today, normally losing 1.5 to 2lbs / week so I think 8 lbs in 6 weeks is do-able.

    UPDATE:
    Well, I got down to 185 according to his scale but 182 according to mine. He was still happy that I lost 49 lbs over the year. Then he asked what my goal weight is. I told him 150, possibly down to 140. He told me to try for 135, and that anything over 150 at my height (5 ft 5") is still too much. My bubble of happiness has temporarily burst. He gave me a year to do it, so I'll reset some mini goals after I recover from the gut-punch. So my next goal is to get rid of all my size 16 pants and XXL tops and fit into all size 14 jeans and Large tops. That should happen within 6 weeks, when all the stores start bringing out the cute spring clothes.

    I'm 'replying' to this post SO LATE that actually now it might be relevant again. @LynnBBQ72 I'm guessing you've got another doctor's appointment coming up pretty soon. How's your progress been in the intervening several months? Are you personally satisfied with your efforts and/or results? Do you think your doctor will be pleased this year?

    I'm looking forward to wearing a 2x instead of a 3x.
