my goals

·         Lose 5 pounds.  I weighed in on January 18th, 2011 for a total loss of 5.4 pounds. 
·         Lose 5% of my body weight.  I weighed in on July 19th, 2011 for a total loss of 11.7 pounds. 
·         Lose 10 pounds.  I weighed in on July 19th, 2011 for a total loss of 11.7 pounds. 
·         Lose 15 pounds.  I weighed in on January 31st, 2012 for a total loss of 15.4 pounds. 

·         Lose 10% of my body weight.  I weighed in on April 17th, 2012 for a total loss of 20.0 pounds. 
·         Lose 20 pounds.  I weighed in on April 17th, 2012 for a total loss of 20.0 pounds.   
·         Lose 25 pounds.  
·         Lose 30 pounds.  
·         Lose 35 pounds.  
·         Lose 20% of my body weight.  
·         Lose 40 pounds.  
·         Lose 45 pounds.  
·         Lose 50 pounds.  This will mean that according to BMI charts, I am no longer overweight.  I am in a normal weight range. 
·         Choose a healthy, attainable weight in which to set my lifetime goal at.  BMI charts and the Weight Watchers site suggest that a person of my height weighs more than 120 pounds, but less than 150 pounds.  This is quite a large range, but I’ll have to decide when I get there what my range is going to be during maintenance and beyond. 
·         Buy single digit sizes.  And I’m not talking shoes! 
·         Be a healthy, happy, skinny bride!  No, I am not presently engaged, but when the time comes I’d just really like to feel and look great.  There is that added benefit that when you prepare to wed and actually wed, there are cameras at every stinking event.  You don’t want to be chubby in all of those photos! 
·         Wear a bikini!  In front of people, not in a dressing room or when no one can see me. 
·         Blog about my weight loss journey.   It’s tough doing it (again!) but when the time comes, I’d like to do a little photo show of where I came from and where I ended up.  Unfortunately, I don’t know when to start.  I think when the time is right, it will come to me!  For now, this journal is where I begin. 
·         Do a boudoir photo shoot.  This has got to be the most terrifying thing for me, but at some point I’d love to go au natural for not only my boyfriend, but for me!  You know, I’m going to work really hard to get this body into tip top shape, but after that I imagine it’s going to be downhill.  I may not let myself gain weight as I age, but gravity can be a mean thing to a woman’s body.  


  1. Happy to have found your blog. Looking forward to following you. I am on WW too currently struggling with staying on track.

  2. Kipp! I love it! Keep it up girl! You can totally do it!!


  3. I have been researching fitness/wellness blogs and found yours to be really interesting. I am contacting you to let you know about a new site we just launched, This will be the first site of its kind - a multi-faceted, centralized forum for fitness enthusiasts and professionals. provides a better focus to peruse images, websites, blogs, and fitness tools with a 'Move It' button, similar to pinning with Pinterest. With thoughtful fitness related categories, you can look through favorite fitness attire without searching a general fitness category. If specialized workouts are what you're interested in, preview the board and 'Move It' on to your own desired Move Board for easy accessibility. If you follow your favorite fitness gurus on Facebook and you want to pin or 'Move It' on to your Move Board, allows you to do just that. Boards are invaluable for organizing images for inspiration, tracking details, or envisioning what the future can hold for your fitness goals.

    The next phase of our site will be the adjunct of a variety of tools/applications that will facilitate or improve your fitness journey experience - these applications are currently in development, but will eventually add expanded value to the site.

    I'd like you to share the details about The Fit It on your site - in exchange, we will offer you one year of free advertising on our site.

    Please contact me at if you are interested in the advertising opportunity, or have any questions or comments.
