Goals said out loud

Lately whenever I hear someone talk about goals lately I hear them say "Say it out loud to someone" and one guy even added on to that say "that way if you don't reach your goal you can be embarrassed that you didn't."

So here is one of my many goals for this year, this way I can either accomplish it or be embarrassed the next time I cross one of your paths :)

My number one goal was to loose 60lbs this year. I am more over weight than I have ever been in my life! I know I know everyone keeps saying I just had a baby, but it's been 6 months. I wasn't at my ideal weight to begin with when I got pregnant. So even if I were to only loose 15 pounds every 3 months I would reach this goal. HOPEFULLY I loose more than that every three months, but I'll make it easy on myself. (and be less embarrassed if I don't)

So far this month I have lost 12 lbs. I seem to be stuck though, I did some isagenix to loose some of that, but it's so expensive for this newly married (1 1/2 years) and newly momma'd woman to afford. If only it were cheaper...awww oh well. Drinking lots of water and chewing lots of gum will have to do for now.

So to everyone out there that reads this, this is my goal ... and I will tell it to all of you so that it will push me harder to accomplish it.

Yep, I have a blog too!
Hey I am trying to lose weight too right now. SUCKS! I too have hit that level mark where i have stopped it seems. UGH! Well I believe in you! :)

Well, that is my goal too. Or rather, not to go overboard and gain more weight than I should during my pregnancy. I wanted to lose 20 lbs before I got pregnant, so maybe after I deliver we can work out together to lose that baby weight.

Tube socks are absorbent. They suck fat molecules out.

Hence longer socks = more efficient weight loss.

Not that I’m saying you need to lose weight. I’m just offering my two cents on the absorbent nature of cotton tube sock.

*legal notice: There is no medical evidence that cotton sucks fat molecules out. Despite being typed out on a UC Irvine Medical Center computer, UCIMC does not agree with or endorse any of the statements made by the d-list Internet celebrity known as Kaakun.

60 lbs! WOW that is a great goal! I don't think I could ever do it! I don't think that you even have 60 lbs to spare! one of my goals this year is a mini triathalon. It gives me something to work towards and hopefully my body will be in better shape for it (although those 4 cookies I had today didn't help much!)
