Goals for a Healthier New Year

Weight loss goal      for my 25th anniversary:

Today, millions will begin to try to shed those holiday pounds.
I managed to “find” almost 5 of the pounds I “lost” before our anniversary.
Since I seem to be more successful when setting short-term goals,
I am going to try to lose 10 pounds by Valentine’s Day.
If you’re on a weight loss program and would like a little added accountability, join me in posting your updates here.
Remember to set safe, realistic goals and to consult a physician before beginning any weight loss/exercise program.
I will weigh-in on Fridays.  Choose the weight-in day that’s best for you!
E-mail or post your goals and weight loss updates in the comment section under any post, or e-mail the info to me at mealplanwithconnie@att.net

These words of the Apostle Paul in Philippians 3:14 provide us with timely encouragement, as we begin our new year and endeavor to become healthier, that we might better serve the Lord’s purposes for our lives:

“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

Best wishes to all who undertake to reach a healthier weight in 2010!


  1. Hi Connie! I hope you had a great holiday! I am going to be trying to lose 30 pounds between now and my birthday which is May 18. I am not on any diet plan--just cutting back on portions, eating healthier foods and exercising. Good luck to you! We can do this!!! :D

  2. Hi Connie. I not only gained back the 3-4 I managed to lose, but also another 5. I am so glad I lost a few first!
    I will aim for 5 by the 14th- I'm just SLOW!
    Y'all should use Sparkpeople to keep track of calories - I've lost a total of about 25 pounds doing that!


  3. Ms Connie,
    Count me in but I want to lose 15 by June 15th. My goal is to do a healthy mix of calorie counting, increased and I am trying my hardest to quit sodas... I'll keep u posted on my weightloss! I think we also should commit to pray for strength and perseverance!
