I have been on this weight loss journey for what seems like a long time, but in reality it's been about 3 1/2 years. I have slipped, I have made mistakes, I have gone up and down. I am still learning and I am still a work in progress. So, sometimes I like to reflect on my goals and what I really want from all of this.
Here are a few of mine:
1. I want to be HEALTHY! This is number one for me. I come from families that have a long history of heart disease and struggle to be healthy. I want to beat that and change it for my family in the future. I don't want to have a heart attack, be on tons of pills to keep me going, or worry that I will leave my family before I am ready. I want to live to be OLD and enjoy it. They say:
2. I want to be able to walk out in my bathing suit/bikini, a dress, shorts, or anything I chose to put on and feel good about the way I look. I don't want to worry about who is staring at me and feel fat. Every woman should feel beautiful, no matter what. :)
3. I want to inspire others to be healthy, workout, and eat food to fuel your body and not just for the "high" that comes from eating something really "good". I want to encourage people to be more active and engage in healthy habits that can really save their life!
4. I want to eat CLEANER. I want to enjoy the fruits, vegetables, proteins, all the good things out there that are great for you. I want to beat my addiction to peanut butter! LOL! It's really a problem. The Advocare cleanse should help that :)
While writing these goals, there was one thing that I noticed. Not one of my goals involved a number. My goals used to be things like: I want to weigh 150, burn at least 500 calories a day, eat no more than 1500-1800 calories a day, etc. I guess the numbers are really not that important to me anymore. Maybe I have found what works for me. Only a few more days and we will see!
What are your goals ladies? How do you see those goals changing your life or someone else's?


  1. My goals are very similar to yours. I want to be healthy, fit into all my clothes, have tons of energy to play with my kids & be active. I want to conquer my unhealthy relationship with food & drinks.

  2. Love these goals!
