    My friends wedding in June. Am down 24lbs thanks to a well known diet "company", but this is no longer working so I'm back to MFP. Want to lose another 14lbs by then. 2lbs off in my first week despite not losing any on the "diet" plan since Xmas!

    I'm taking this a step at a time. I started at 265 a year ago and I am down to 215. First goal is to be back to under 199 by the end of May. 16 lbs to go! Second goal is to lose another 20 before my wedding anniversary in September. Third goal is another 10 by New Year's. Then will see if I can keep it off. :p

    Going to a Florida wedding this August and seeing a lot of people I haven't seen in years. I also recently started seeing someone and want to be a lot more comfortable and confident in myself for him

    My current goal for July 29th (Friend's wedding): Fit into this really cute dress I bought 2 summers ago - it's 1 size to small. Seems attainable

    I'm always looking at the next event. Now it's Easter, then Memorial Day, a NYC trip in June, engagement pictures, Ozarks trip in August, and getting married in Jamaica in December! I'm where I want to be, so thinking about these times I'll be indulging helps me stay on track and plan better now.

    The end of the semester! Once summer break hits I'm planning on going a lot harder on cardio and strength training (and by harder i mean, actually doing it) but right now I'm just focusing on eating healthier.

    My 10 year high school reunion is in October. I had the gastric sleeve 3/14/17. Ultimately my goal is to be healthy but I want to look good for that day since I have some time to get there. I haven't seen some of my classmates since graduation. I've always been plus size, so I'm excited to loose this weight and be healthy.

    Perhaps a little threading to get rid of the kitty cat whiskers too and foundation to even out the coloring. My sisters report on her high school reunion: no wonder I didn't hang out with these people. I have nothing in common with them. And they guy that she had been in love with? Came out as gay. The guy I was in love with? Got a job in Atlantic city casinos and dated show girls.

    I go on an annual heavy metal music cruise in early Feb. My pictures from this last one were awful. I had 3 chins. Next time, I'll be looking much better. I have plenty of time.

    Also, I turned 40 in Jan. this year. I want to use this year to whip myself back into better shape. I want to hit 41 in much better shape than when I hit 40, and i'm already on track to do that.

    I also want my cholesterol to be lower next time I get it checked. Lots of reason that this year is the year! I have til Dec 31 to crush my goals! Plenty of time. 9 lbs down, 40 to go. I'm 20% there already (the positive side I tell myself when I think of how much I have yet to lose)!

    My band just got signed to a record label - we have a photo shoot in a month and a half - trying to get close to my normal weight ( which is 10 pounds lighter) by then....
    I live in the city so - alot of walking. I walk a minimum of 3 miles everyday just to get back and forth to work...been increasing it to at least 4 miles and watching calories intensly... Im 4 days in...lost 1 pound. Fingers crossup i can keep it up....

    May I suggest that you consider eating for strength, including a variety of different colored veggies like white, green, yellow, orange, red, purple and brown? Your SKIN is probably going to show the most on any covers and you want that to look MAHVELOUS. And congratulations!

    I'm taking a learn-to-row class in June, and I have this fear of tipping the boat because I'm too big. I think I can get to a healthy body fat percentage by then. Just 15 lbs to go.

    After I started losing weight, I realized that next year is my 30th high school reunion. Talk about motivation to keep the weight off!

    Several events:
    June: I want to have lost 15lbs for my neice's graduation
    July: 20lbs for Fourth of July festivities.
    August: 25 for back to school ( I teach)
    September: 30 for my birthday
    December 50 for our mountain trip.
    Year from now at least 75.
    I need to loose at least a hundred total and hope to be there next May when my daughter graduates.
    Lots of hard work but working on one goal at the time.
