a new year is here... we always get an influx of those goals for what we plan to do this year...

if you're looking for an idea check out last years thread HERE

something along the lines of
-Current age:
-Current height:
-Current weight:
-Previous weight (if you've dropped weight but still on the journey):
-Fitness Goals:
-Riding goals:
-Rewards (treat yourself if you meet goals type thing):
-Event goals:

obviously it doesn't have to go just like that but it works :)

and if you are looking for some bragging/accountability post your weight loss as you go in the 2009 BIG BOY Weekly Weigh In thread

I want to be back at 220 by June
I started mountain bikinback in the late 80's and it has been the only hobby that I have continued with througout my life and it is a nice way to get rid of the stress.

Fitness Goals: 190-195lbs
Riding goals: Utilize my new FOES. Ride every day, even if it's a quick one. Find more road and mnt rides. Century on road as well as trail.
Rewards: I think the difference in health as well as fitness is the ultimate reward. The better shape I'm in, the longer and harder the rides I can do.
Event goals: Hit as many road time trials I can this year.

- Age: 28
- Height: 5'8"
- Start Date: March 2, 2009
- Start weight: 240lbs
- Current weight: 224lbs (I reached 220 but got 4 in Dec)
- Goal weight for 2010: 187lbs

-Riding and Fitness Goals:

I want to ride harder and longer, I did 1600 miles on 2009 and I want to triple it this year, of those mi, 1000 were just for commuting. I want to improve my endurance capacity. I'm going to look for an indoor soccer or a table tennis place where I can go back to my college activities, I tried standard soccer, but I never had the skills or resistance for it, I've been postponing this for so long, and if I want to meet my weight loss goal I need and extra sport activity.

Once, I reached pants size 40, I think I was around 265lbs, did I diet on my own (without any exercise) and was able to reach the 187lbs Goal, but once I stop my "Diet" I started to gain weight again. I've found that with constant exercize my weight is more stable and I don't have to be too "Diet minded", although I think I will cut some carbs and soda this year.

Looking to wiegh in at 220 by April 1

Jan 1 was the beginging of "The Battle Of The Cattle 2010" at work.
3 of my co-workers and myself have $ on who can lose the greatest % of weight.
Some of the other guys have side bets on who will win, what % loss will win, and even the superfecta; winner thru 3rd runner up in exact order.

I am proud to say that I am the reigning champ of the "Great Weight Debate of 2009" which ran August to November, but it only involved me and one other, (who is trying again this time) and he is an emotional eater, so I killed him.
