My Goals for San Francisco

What a beautiful day it has been thus far. The sun is shining, the birds are flitting about and I am getting very excited about our upcoming trip to San Francisco to visit our family. We haven't been since last Easter and I just love going there. I have been thinking a lot about what my weight loss goal would be for then. I am going to set it at 40 lbs down by March 22nd. I am going to wow everyone. I really want to go shopping for some new clothes and I just love going shopping there with my husband. I have not bought anything new in so long and I really want to be able to fit into a size 18 by then. So here it is in big bold writing so I don't forget (as if I I am going to add it to the goal list on my blog. I am going to achieve this by:
1. Exercising 5 times a week for a minimum of 60 minutes
2. Eating protein first
3. Drinking 5 -16oz bottles of water a day
4. Weighing in every Monday and posting the results
5. Focussing on being positive
It's truly amazing what this band can do for us. Not only does it provide us with a sense of control over our eating but it gives us back the sense of hope that one day we will be at our healthy goal weight. It feels so good to be turning dreams into reality one day at a time.

I think this is a great idea. I have very similar goals, I am taking a vacation at that same time, and I want to be in a size 18 as well! Even in a size 18 I feel so much better than what I am now. Good luck!

I was just talking to someone else about how I love when I have a goal set that is coming really helps me stay on track and work it! I am glad you are feeling positive and motivated! Keep holding on to that!

Love your goals - and if you manage to exercise that much for a week - you're my hero. I barely manage a third of that!!

SF sounds wonderful - it's a place I've always wanted to see. Very hilly and picturesque.. sigh..maybe one day. Have a blast seeing your family and shop up a storm with the new you.

Loved your previous post too about the candy hearts. My new slogan "no brain filter" applies to so many people I know. Some people should have their mouths permanently duct-taped.

Me again. Just wanted to say, I read through your postings and what a journey. I see similar scenarios, although I am a few weeks behind. Glad you are doing so well. I forgot about being able to sit cross-legged on the floor. My kids are grown, but there will soon be grandkids so I look forward to doing that simple little thing and then being able to get up afterwards. Keep on blogging!

Thank you Ladies for your comments. I am going to "weigh in" in a few minutes. I will post results today. Nice to hear from you Sandy Lee. I really appreciate everyone who takes the time to read my confessions.
