I want to lose as much weight as I can until I get pregnant, then maintain a healthy weight/gain a healthy amount during pregnancy to ensure my baby's health.

I will lose 5kg before NYD (no chance of being pregnant before then as I still have Implanon until 28th Dec!)

I want to be another 5kg down by the end of Summer. By my March wedding I'd reeeally like to be 3 more kilos down from that. Then I'd like to maintain that weight. I'd love to lose a bit more but being 5'9 and the food and wine lover that I am I don't think that would be sustainable Tounge1.gif

Just to keep going!!  I'm happy with my weight but if my strength and fitness haven't both improved further by the end of 2013 I will be very cross with myself.

My NYR for 2013 is to reach double digits for the first time in several years.

I am aiming to come 1st or 2nd in my 8week challenge that starts on Jan 2nd (came third in the last one so aiming to beat that).

By the end of summer, I want to be swimming 2.5-3km 4 times a week. Currently am doing 2-2.5km 2-4 times a week.

I also want to be able to walk up the hill to work easily rather then dreading it every day. It is only a few hundred metres but is a decent incline. Getting easier though so well on the way.

My ultimate goal is to be healthy enough to ovulate on my own and get a BFP but I will settle for getting that BFP with the help of clomid if losing weight isn't enough to get rid of my PCOS related annovulation.

I hope to be under 100kg in the next few weeks, a month at the most.

I also intend to start using the free weights section of the gym and not let the muscly men scare me away.

By the end of 2013 I will be at 70 kg which will be a total weight loss of 55 kgs. eexcite.gif

By my 40th birthday in mid April I want to be under 80kg for the first time since high school, and by the end of the year I will be at my goal weight and maintaining it for life!  

This is my year of health and fitness!

Today I bought jeans at Jeans West in size 16, the first time I have walked into a regular (not plus size) clothes shop and walked out with something in forever.  By the end of the year I will be able to confidently shop wherever I please!

PUBLICLY ACCOUNTABLE:
I want to lose at least 3kg per month, giving me a total loss of 36kg for the year which will take me back to close to what I weighed when I met DH.  

To achieve this:

I WILL do 30 min of exercise 4 times a week minimum.
I WILL eat healthily 5 days a week at least.

At the end of each month I WILL have the following rewards when I've achieved this:
Jan: pedicure
Feb: haircut/dye
Mar: massage
Apr: pedicure
May: new shoes
June: new jeans
July: pedicure
Aug: haircut/dye
Sept: dinner out with friends
Oct: pedicure
Nov: new swimmers
Dec: new wardrobe in the boxing day sales

I plan to fund these treats with the $ I save by not eating so much and not buying so much junk! original.gif

In October I completed my first half marathon... to do this, I completed a 20 week training program which saw me lose 7kgs.  Unfortunately, I have put on a couple of those kilos and have had a little break from running.

Today, I began day 1 of a 12 week program to participate in the 2013 Run for the Kids in March (I think this run is about 14km).  I also hope to complete another half marathon in 2013.

lynnemine, rewarding yourself is a great idea!  I too, did this with my half marathon training.

My DW posed a good one to me a couple of days ago.
No McDonalds for a full year!
I don't have any real attraction to McDonalds apart from it being an easy option some nights. We might average it once a month or thereabouts so I think that it isn't a lot to give up but it is good to have the incentive to stay away.

I want to be back to within 2kg of my weight watchers goal weight by the time my 12 week grace period is up and Illl have to start paying to go again, so thats probably about 10kg to lose after the baby is out.

Heading back to weight watchers as soon as this kid is out at the end of Feb original.gif

Bring back the morning walks now I wont be at work anymore, no less than 1 hour a day.

Just keeping on track and trying not to gain tons with  hands.gif pregnancy. Luckily, I think I've developed a latent twitchiness trait. For the last week, I've been completely incapable of sitting still for long so am up being busy most of the day. Good for weight control!

I'm currently 80kg...........about 15-20kg over my normal weight range. This is the biggest I have been and feel pretty low about it. After my third rugrat came along, I stopped the gym, gave into comfort food and upped the wine. As a result, nearly 20kgs have piled on.

I want to loose about 15kg.

I would love to be around 75kg at the next music festival we go to at the beginning of March.

I'd LOVE to be in the 60's (even 69.9 lol) by September, we're going on a camping family holiday and I want to be comfortable in myself original.gif
