Goal Tracking Club

This thread is for people who formally want to track either one or two goals and hold themselves accountable to each other.  Research says that people who quantify and track their goals in a way that keeps them accountable lose up to twice as much weight.  :)

These can be any type of fitness/health goals, not just weight loss or the like.  It could be an amount of time spent working out, or drinking a certain amount of water each day, or losing a certain number of inches, for example.

Here's the chart I made, but I don't know why it's showing up so small.  Let me try to fix it....

I weighed in last night - and lost 3.2lbs!
I only worked out once though.

This week's weigh in didn't go so well.  I only lost .8lbs

I am disappointed and I think my body hates me.....since I quit smoking I can't poop anymore and I retain every ounce of water I drink.  It's frustrating, but I'm persistant.  I worked out twice last week though - once more than before...

Last week I did 4 workouts.  This week I am already at four and planning to get in one more class at the gym.

Keep it up all!  Its consistency that counts.

Ugh....what is going on!?!?  I only lost another .8lbs!  I'm so frustrated!
I feel like I've lost 10 lbs, but I'm really only at 5.....I don't understand....
The lady told me that I probably wasn't eating enough...I just don't get that...how does eating more food make any sense?
But I'll give it a shot - it can't get any worse, right?

ok, I want to do this! Here's my goal

My overall goal: To love the way I look and feel in my clothes

My starting point: I'm currently working out 4-5 days for 20-30 intense mins each. I'd like to be workingout everyday for at least 45 intense mins.

My weekly goal: To lose a minimum of 2-3 lbs a week. I'm a new vegan so I have a lot of wieght to lose. :-) Slow and healthy though!

This week I only hit the gym 3 times.  :(  Snow days mess me up an my weight class on Friday was a cardio thing. Boo!

BUT I have noticed more muscle definition in my calves and that my tush is noticeably higher.  Plus someone said they can tell the difference in my face since I started working out in December.  (One of my coworkers whom I go to the gym with sometimes.)  Im so thrilled.  I should go downstairs an lift some weight but I have a house guest.

yay everyone! i've been BAD about checking in here BUT good at the working out!

still going 3-4 times a week (usually 4 unless i have a headache after work that is really bad). lost 5 pounds so far. my "tight 8" jcrew pants are noticeably looser in the butt and thigh. almost to the point where i need a smaller size in the butt (the thigh fits right).

on assisted pull up, i've decreased my assistance by 6 pounds, so i can pull up about 40 pounds of my weight. sweet!

I lost .8lbs - for the third week in a row.....I don't understand what I'm doing wrong....thats only 5.6lbs in one month....ugh, I used to be so good at losing weight

erin, what do you mean 'only'?  5.6lbs in one month is great!  I know you may have been wanting much more, but surely if you lose it too quickly then there's more chance of putting it all back on?
I think you deserve a well done, anyways! <3

Thanks, Shell.  I just get frustrated easily with my body.  But it's been all out of whack since I quit smoking and I think my body is rebelling, even though it should be thanking me....
Slow and steady wins the race, I hope....

I think I'm the only one that uses this anymore.....but I lost 1.6 lbs this week!
I'm happy with that - I was beginning to worry that I'd only lose .8 every week...and that would take forever.....

yayyy erin!!! im still wearing my big pants so i dont know exactly where i'm at, but i can look in the mirror during practice now. before, i avoided them and either stood on front of a wall or watched other people in the mirror. now im comfortable enough with myself to actually see myself. yay!

I'm down a total of 7.2 lbs and all of my jeans are loose and saggy in the butt, but I'm not thin enough to wear my skinny jeans yet.....

you ladies rock! woo!
I was going to do this and then I didn't. But I finally bought a jump rope and did a small workout today. It's hard! I think I really need to lose some weight though, in addition to getting in shape. I've never been so sedentary in my life and it doesn't help that I have all this time to cook yummy foods all day. I want to get rid of the big roll of fat on my tummy.
