New Years Goals, Resolutions, & Dress. :)

Saturday, December 03, 2011

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right. ~Oprah Winfrey

I can't believe how fast the year passed! :)

There's less than a month left of 2011!! I'm excited to see what 2012 has in store for me. Losing weight, like most people, has been one of my New Year's resolutions for years. This year, I'm hoping that this will be the last time I have losing weight as one of them. I'm currently 124.2 so I have about 10-12 pounds left to lose until I reach my goal weight. Since I have a little bit less than a month left in 2011, I would love to reach 120-121 by New Years. :) I'm pretty much love my body, but I would love to tone up my love handles and thighs.

I'm looking forward to 2012 and would love to start the new year off right. I found a cute dress this week that I'm planning to wear for New Years. What do you think?



I'm wearing a size 6 dress. I was wondering if I still will be able to wear it even if I lost 10 pounds (I would be 114 pounds). Wouldn't I be closer to a size 4 since I'm only 5'1?

I hope that it won't be too big for me to wear when I reach my goal weight.

Also, being more confident and not letting small things stress me out are on my New Year's resolution list.

What are your New Year's resolutions?

    Great dress! I'm just a half inch taller than you and worry about the same thing...will losing weight affect how all my favorite clothes fit? But, then I think who cares? I'll be healthier...and also look and feel better! Have a great 2012!

    love the dress. You look soo great! I am sure you will get to your goal and still look amazing in it. But buying a size down is also an amazing confidence booster! emoticon

    If it doesn't cost too much, maybe you could buy both and get gift receipts for them. They might question why you're getting two of the same dress with gift receipts, so you may have to buy them at separate times or enlist the help of someone else. The reason I'm suggesting a gift receipt is because stores are usually more lenient with the amount of time you have before you have to return an item!

    Either way, you look fantastic!

    It's a great dress, and you look great in it!! Maybe you could have it altered if it doesn't fit in 10 lbs?

    You look great in that dress. My hunch is that it would still fit but with a bit looser fit. Part of it depends on how snug it is now too.

    I know what you mean about that niggling resolution. I probably shouldn't admit how many years I've had that resolution ... maybe eight consecutive years of not feeling 100% content with my body? Eight years too many. I want to say, "Done!" (Well given the maintenance beast you're never really "done," but it would be nice to feel content). I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the rest of 2011 and the new year!

    Beautiful! I wish I could get a new years dress. I have to work though :( I agree with the "getting it tailored" comment! I'm currently 132.4 and hope to be 129 by new years. I can't wait to get to where you are "pretty much loving my body". I'm so close and definitely more on track than I've ever felt. My goals for 2012 are to get to 115, and most of all be confident and HAPPY. It sounds so simple but I still have a hard time finding happiness. I will get there. Good luck on your goals!

    First, I am very jealous of how small you are, way to go!

    Second, my new years resolutions are going to be a "dirty dozen for 2012" some include, running a half marathon, starting a blog (www.katielookingforward.wordpress.
    com ) making 12 donations, cooking 12 new recipes. I don't have a "lose x lbs" resolution, because those are the resolutions I always broke. So now I'm looking at making good healthy choices.

    I love the dress, it's so pretty! You're so petite! Maybe you could get it tailored to fit you better if it fits loose?
    I definitely feel your goal of being 120-121 is reachable emoticon
