Your silly weightloss goals

BFF and I were talking about our new "life style changes" and ended up talking about our goals... she was going on about lowering her cholesterol, lowering her blood sugar, lowering her blood pressure... yadda, yadda, yadda, be healthy and fit... I finally had to admit as far as my goals go, my short term goal is to have my ass not act as a dam while sitting in the bath tub.

I feel I am not as serious about my weight loss as she is, but I am less likely to burn out as quick.

So what are your silly weight loss goals??

Silly: I want my collarbones to come out of hiding! I swear they're in there somewhere but they've been lost for too long. I miss them!

Not-So-Silly: Avoid gallbladder removal that my surgeon has recommended. (currently asymptomatic)

To lose the fat apron so that, when naked, I look like a woman and not an androgenous troll doll.

I want my boyfriend to be able to pick me up and carry me around like they do in the movies without me having to worry that he will hurt his back!

I want to sit down with feeling rolls spilling over my waistband.

I want to be able to put my bikini back on and be able to think, "okay...that works" instead of "oh HELL no!"

I want to get a massage without worrying they're judging me.

Oops, that would be: I want to sit down WITHOUT feeling the rolls... I've already accomplished the former ;)

I have a rainbow of sizes of jeans in my closet. I want to get down to the smallest size and then have THEM be too big for me and actually need to get a smaller pair! (and then get rid of the larger sizes once and for all so I'm not tempted to ever "settle" with having to wear them again)

I want to NOT weigh more than my boyfriend

And pretty much every single one of the other above mentioned goals!

There's a radio commercial playing in our area for an airport parking service where two men try to one-up one another about what a good deal they got, or how fast they made to the airport, or what a good seat they got etc. Just as it appears the second man has triumphantly one-upped the first man, and that there are no options left for the first man to one-up further, the first man comes up with "Yeah, well I have a hot wife".

I want to be that hot wife.

i want to feel less self consious when the boys at school are play around during gym and pick me up to spin me around.

i want to be able to just throw clothes on in the morning, without wondering..oh..these jeans need THIS shirt for maximum coverage.

i want people to try and make fun of me for my looks, but it won't matter because i won't think they're right.

ditto, 7:07,7:09 - I want this roll betwee my waist and my bra GONE

This is kinda gross..but you asked. I haven't literaly washed the only jeans that fit me in a month. I only wear them once a week when we can dress down for work. But the reason I haven't washed them is because they are the only ones that fit, but they are really tight and I'm afraid if I wash them, they won't fit. And I refuse to buy bigger, I want smaller. So my silly fitness goal is to lose weight so I can buy a smaller pair of jeans!

8:34 - try washing them and then hanging them to dry, they won't shrink! I did this with my jeans when I was in the same position! And keep going - now I have to dry them on hot so they will fit for at least one day before they start falling down!

ooh, I love this post. Sometimes it seems like the only "valid" reason for weight loss is health. Health is GREAT, but it's not as motivating to me as these goals listed here.

I would love to be able to share clothes with my thin friends again!

I want to be able to buy bras "off the rack" when ever I feel the notion.

I do the hanging my jeans out to dry as well. Not only does the hanging your jeans out to dry keep them from becoming scary tiny but it also prevents them from fading as fast :)

I also want to see my collar bones again.

I want to see my belly button without stretching my stomach

I want to make a very insecure co-worker even more insecure. Sounds mean, but she's made fun of my weight several times, but if anyone says anything about her weight she gets depressed for the whole day.

I want to wear a tank top and skinny jeans next summer.

4:00 - I know exactly what you mean. I took out a pair of cream colored slacks, tried them on, and put them right back in that closet. I'm thinking of getting rid of them.

I second what Valerie Bertinelli said on ET the other night. I want to start a new year for once, without a resolution to lose weight.

I want to be able to wear a mini skirt and thigh high boots around the house, just so everytime my boyfriend see's me he'll want to throw me on the bed :P

I want to be able to go into a changing room and see that all clothes fit me and not have to get six different things only to find one thing fits.

I want to not have to see cellulite on my thighs

I want to be one of those super confident girls that can joke around and, if the conversations brings it up, be like, look at my tummy! :] with no shame.

I want to be less self consious when boys tickle me, or put their hand on my back.

I want to go shopping and have the peices of my choice fit like a charm.

I want the guy I like to see how hot I am ('cause honestly, I get told I'm gorgeous chubby..imagine if I had a smokin' body?), but it'll be too late, 'cause I don't go for shallow losers.

I want to stop counting calories!

the definition of MLF

to 02-6:51

I'm SO GLAD I didn't have any liquid in my mouth when I read your post because it would have ended up all over my computer monitor! Instead, I coughed and hacked and choked I was ROTFL.

How about this: I'd like to sit at the bow of a speed boat again without bruising my face with my boobs or alternatively, getting them entangled in my brush when I bend over forward to comb my hair.

10-15, glad I could help =] lol

And oh my god, speed boats are horrible, or anything that shakes/moves around a lot. Everything 'jiggles' with it! lol

Plus, that involves sitting in a bathing suit. Which doesn't help hide the rolls XD

I would like to:

get rid of my stomach overhang (even though my boyfriend likes it!)

wear the clothes that I still have from when I was much thinner

be able to wear high heels without wondering if they will take my weight

compare my thighs to any man sitting next to me on the bus or train and not feel huge because my legs are much bigger than his

feel small and girly rather than just a big blob

Silly weight loss goals

I want to NOT have to modify the exercises at the gym because my stomach buldges out too much.
I want to be able to tie my shoes more easily.
I want not to feel friction between my Thunder thighs when I walk.

all i can say is i'm done with dunlap! you know how, no matter if you're standing or sitting the rolls have dunlapped over my bra, my pants, and any other place that they choose to spill out!

silly weight loss goal i've had for hmmm...about 3 years ex works at an icecream shop in a mall about 30 min. away. since i've found out (3 yrs. ago) all i want to do is casually stroll by (like i didn't know he worked there), looking fabulous, with my adorable kid, and show him what he missin out on! i know stupid, right? the worse thing is that i'll continue to avoid that mall like the plague until i finally feel fabulous!

Not a silly thing about that! Heck yeah! Stroll by that storefront as soon as you feel good about it. Don't you know revenge is the best medicine?

And Chalant -- thunderthighs are even worse when you're in Hawaii, staying out of the ocean for too long and you get salty sticky dry thunderthighs that chafe at every step!

Here's something I filmed 2003 with a crappy camera. Note the relief in my voice.

I have to say i don't think any of these goals are the least bit silly. Of course being healthy is a good goal, but the more goals one has the more incentive to stick to it!

So there it is - i want to look good in my skinny pants. I got a kick-@ss pair of designer pants on a great sale with the thought - 'this is what you say you want to wear and here they are at a great price'. I periodically try them on. Now I can fit into them but they're tight and when they look good I'll be done losing weight and ready to maintain. Sure I'm doing things healthfully and I love the benefits that come with a healthy lifestyle, but man - those pants rock! Theoretically i could be done by Christmas, but I'll be ok if it's early next year.

Get rid of muffin top. Get rid of chicken wings. Get rid of funny love handles on my butt, that bounce more than my boobs when I run. Get rid of that funny saggy skin on my thighs. Get rid of the flap. Get rid of it all. And get a collarbone, a round not flat butt, boobs that don't hang, and just tight all over. And weigh less than my husband.

great thread! I want to weigh 50 lbs less than my husband...I was at a holiday party mid December, and a tiny woman, whose husband was handsome but actually also tiny, way too thin, she said, "there should be 50 lbs between husband and wife, I'll do my part but you need to eat more to gain"! I reinterpreted that for my situation, and yes i think it would be cool to be 50lbs less than my husband, at 209 lbs I'm currently 20lbs MORE than him.
