These are my goals for 2012...I wanted to get them down on paper so I can look back along the journey and remind myself what I wanted to accomplish for the year.


Item included in layout from


A New Me Collection and Fitness Collection Biggie



When I started my weight loss journey in 2011, the one thing I didn’t do right from the start is

set goals. I was too worried about “sticking with it” this time around. After the first month though

when I lost 20lbs and started feeling better about myself I started setting small goals. First came

the weight loss. I set a goal and celebrated at each 10lb increment. The next goal was exercise.

I kept upping the amount of miles I walked and threw in some other cardio and weight training.


By the end of the year I had reached my original goal of 100lbs, but didn’t reach my adjusted

goal of 140lbs (I ended with 120lbs) I also didn’t reach my goal of finishing the ChaLEAN program

due to an arm/shoulder injury and unexpected surgery. I am though very happy with the mile-

stones I did reach and I’m now ready to set my goals for 2012.


Since I don’t have as much weight to loose this year, my goals will mainly include exercise and

pushing myself to the next level. My goals for 2012 include:


Losing the last 40lbs to make it a total of 160lbs lost. After that anything else that comes off

will be “bonus”. Finish ChaLEAN this time around and build my “boy muscles”. Drink 64oz of

water everyday, with no excuse. And my final goal that I have never said out loud, but

I’m now putting out there for everyone to see is I would love to finish a 5K. I am not a

runner, but I'm using this winter time to build my endurance, and have been

jogging more every day. Hopefully by the end of

2012, I can compete in and finish a 5k.

Amazing, Angie. You have such endurance through the process. It's inspirational. I did a 5K a few years ago. I know you can do it! Thanks for the encouragement to get back to it (injury here as well). Love your collection used here. It's just right.

You are such an amazing woman, Angie! What an inspiration you are - and so encouraging. I almost missed this thread and challenge - thanking Conda for pointing it out. I am glad you are now able to scrap your journey and glad that your idea is allowing me to scrap my journey from the get-go. Thank you for being frank with us and sharing not only your success but your goal for the coming year.

Love your layout - putting it down on paper makes it so real, doesn't it?

Setting goals is difficult especially when there are others to think about. Putting those goals on paper and allowing others to see is very inspiring. You are a great person.
