    My realistic, obtainable goals:
    - Earn a promotion at work.
    - Cut back on my passive aggressive behavior and clearly state what I want.
    - Take at least one lunch break a week (instead of working while I eat at my desk)
    - Save money to move out of my Mom's house and into my own.

    My unrealistic goals:
    - Learn a language
    - Unlearn self doubt and find inner peace
    - Follow a mystic on a journey of self discovery

    great goals!!
    I do not think those goals are unrealustic. 1) get an audio cd for language and listenon way to work 2) try mindfulness exercise
    I have a book called the success principles..it's really cool.
    well good luck

    I think you could do it. At first, the weight seems to just fall off-- whether it's water weight or whatever, it's still a number dropping on the scale.

    My goals have changed from the number to an ideal: I just want to start working on my body comp. I used to want my anorexic, pre-baby body back. But, now the idea isn't nearly as appealing. I'd rather just be healthy and feel good naked.

    I would like to lose 100 lbs by next Christmas. My goals in order to accomplish that are: eating more fruit and veggies, exercising more often (I miss running and would like to get back to that) and running at least one 5K before the end of the year.

    On top of that, my personal goals are - getting a house, getting a job in my chosen field and to keep my 4.0 GPA in grad school.. :love:

    Not to make any goals is realistic for me.

    I started my Weightloss journey in august of this year. I weighed in at 450 pounds. I would like to be 270 by my birthday in july of 2014. Which is around 16-18 pounds a month. I work out 6 days a week.

    Run a 5k in the fall.
    Wear something that is not in the 20's!!

    I'm currently 380. So a little over a 100 pounds to go in over 7 months!!
  • I'm going to try to get to my goal weight (finally) and run a half marathon.

    1) Reach goal weight, should be done by September only got 26lbs to go so thats <1lb per week
    2) Deadlift above 120kg currently 92.5kg
    3) If I reach goal weight start bulking over the winter
    4) Depending on when I reach my goal, might re-evaluate and cut further
