The Goal List

My measurements will be coming this evening...I'll try to do pics too.

Today I didn't do too bad on my diet...I'll go into more detail later about exactly what kind of eating programme I'm following. I didn't really follow it so much today because I'm really anal about starting things on Sundays. LOL I had two slices of toast with margarine and coffee for breakfast (coffee with fat free coffee cream and Splenda); I skipped lunch because I was getting my hair done but I bought a coffee at Dunkin Donuts on my way home (Coffee Mate and Splenda); and made an omelet for dinner with three egg whites, one yolk, low-fat shredded cheddar cheese, onions, hot sauce and Canadian Bacon. I'm not sure what I will have for a snack but we have some really good grapes in the fridge, and I will probably have a cuppa this evening, too.

Here's my list of rewards - I'm not going to do it by least not yet, since I'm not weighing myself. I know approximately what I weigh and I don't need a scale to tell me I weigh more than some professional football players. I'm going to do it by sizes. The most recent pair of dress pants I bought (last weekend at JCPenney) are a size 22 WP. So, using that pair of dress pants as a guide, here is my list:

Drop one size (20WP) -
two new FIRM DVD's
Drop two sizes (18 WP) - a professional manicure

*At this point I will weigh myself. This will be my "ground zero" so to speak*

20 pounds - new workout shoes
35 pounds -
real pearl earrings (6-7 MM pearls)
50 pounds - A day at a spa
65 pounds - three new FIRM DVD's (there are enough that I don't have!!)
80 pounds - new workout clothes + 2 new FIRM DVD's
95 pounds - a genuine gemstone pendant necklace or ring
GOAL WEIGHT (or GOAL SIZE, whichever comes first) -

1. A swimsuit (depending on time of year I reach my goal, this one may have to wait a few months)
2. A pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes
3. A Kate Spade handbag (over $250)
4. A weekend in Chicago

I know that last one is going to be an expensive one, and I may not be able to do all of it at once, but I figure since I'm looking at losing 100+ pounds, I DESERVE IT!!!

More later...

Great start Nancy!!The only negative that I can see is that you skipped lunch- tisk tisk. I know that you were running around, but you should try to eat something for every meal. Have you been hungry so far today in between at all?
Like your goals- the last one is a big one! It will be mega expensive, but oh so worth it! What a celebration THAT will be!!
Remeber, this is the first day of the rest of your life! I know it is corny, but true. Good luck!

I HATE that phrase - "today is the first day of the rest of your life." UGH UGH UGH!!! Blech!

Ayway, I rarely eat lunch on weekends, just because of when I get up and get going...I'm usually eating breakfast around 11 AM. LOL

As for the last goal, HELL YEAH it will be a celebration!!! After losing that much weight, I think I will deserve a celebration!
