View Full Version : Time to resurrect the GB Forum for New Years

OK, some of us achieved our goals, others modified them along the way, others said, "What, I never posted that! My roommate hijacked my account!".

I made my goal weight for the year of 267... but that was just the first 30. This next year is going to much tougher, because I'm working on the next 30.

This time next year, I want to be 237. I know I can do it if I discipline myself to do certain things dietarily and physically.

How about you?

I've got to get down to 180. I'm at 201 right now, and it's not a flattering 201.

I get married in a year and 3 days. I want to lose at least 80, hopefully more in that time span.
After I log off here, I'm going straight to the gym to begin a Ripken-esque streak.

210, goal is 195(lost 50 this year), but more important than weight is pant size! 36, want 33 or 34. If I'm still over 200 but wearing 34's, I'll be happy.

OK... Goal under 210. I'm at 250 now. I can do it...

I lost 20 pounds this summer/early fall. I think I have gained most of it back. I want to lose about 65 lbs.

So what will everyone be doing to lose weight?

I will be counting calories and working out. Counting calories means cutting out sweets, fast food, and soda.

Stop eating so many freaking sweets. Already work out too much.

Watch what I eat, specifically with lower-carb stuff. When I did that a couple of years ago, I didn't have a hard time staying on the diet too much and it was very successful.

I know, I know... fad diets, whatever. I'm here to tell you when I did it before, I was under a doctor's care, my blood sugar was better regulated, I lost more weight, my triglycerides were better, my cholesterol was better, my A1C was better... the doctor was just as surprised as me.

damn, how did you get that long before the big day?

most people only get a few months to enjoy their freedom.

lower-carb stuff.

I tried Atkins, and it worked wonders, but it was too expensive for my (then) college income.

I've heard a lot of stories about the weight coming back very quickly.

If you wanna keep it off, Atkins (low-carb in general) has to be a lifetime decision.

although most "diets" should be, but sandwiches, bread, mashed potatoes, rice and all that stuff is too much to give up for life.
