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.

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.
