  • Nikki Mar 15, 2012, 11:29 am

    Goal: sustainable weight/fat loss over long term.
    Challenges: LOTS! frequent eating out in restaurants and/or at friends’ houses. Laziness/lack of prep leads to eating out at lunchtime as well as dinner. Dislike for boring, repetitive meals and bland food in general leads to quick burnout on diet plans. Stress. Being hungry a lot. Desire/feeling of deserving sweets and/or cocktails after a stressful day.

    • admin Mar 15, 2012, 1:37 pm

      Thanks for the feedback Nikki! These are all common problems … I hope I can help you solve them!

  • DS Mar 15, 2012, 11:30 am

    1. My goal is to be healthy, lose weight and maintain that weight!!! I need to maintain my goal weight when I get there….no more yo yo weight gain!

    2. My obstacle is loving cheese and bread and being stressed out all the time and not really understanding portion sizes. And preparing meals for my family without depriving them of cheese and bread….I have a lot of obstacles. 🙁

    • admin Mar 15, 2012, 1:38 pm

      DS – I agree, weight loss that you can maintain is the key!

      Thanks for the entry

  • Sabrina Mar 15, 2012, 11:32 am

    ■Your #1 fitness goal:
    1. Lose fat/weight, tone
    2. Be CONSISTENT in eating right (almost all the time) and working out, especially cardio, weekly.

    ■Your #1 dietary obstacle/frustration/etc. that’s keeping you from reaching it:

    1. Highly stressful job/emotionally draining job- getting home late in the evenings often and am exhausted, so I just eat everything around me and don’t have the energy to work out. (Not a morning person, so working out in the mornings aren’t so great. Note, my lack of energy Sat morning classes! haha)
    2. Regarding food- Portion control and I especially struggle with night time eating and have big weak spots for carbs (Any kind of potato) and sweets. bad! 😉

    • admin Mar 15, 2012, 1:39 pm

      Thanks for entering Sabrina! I appreciate the feedback – and hope to be of help 🙂

  • Linda Mar 15, 2012, 11:37 am

    #1 Goal: Control portion size and the way I eat.
    #2 Dietary Obstacle: I love to cook and snack/drink wine while cooking. I could do that all day!

    • admin Mar 15, 2012, 1:41 pm

      Thanks Linda. I totally understand … and agree with you that controlling that portion size can be tough!

  • Jim Brown Mar 15, 2012, 11:48 am

    #1 fitness goal is to achieve the correct proportions of fat and muscle for my body type. The fat is currently winning that battle…

    #2 Greatest obstacle is my deep love of wine, which undermines my otherwise very healthy diet

    • admin Mar 15, 2012, 1:42 pm

      Thanks for the feedback and entry Jim!

  • kristine Mar 15, 2012, 11:51 am

    #1 Goal: lose wieght and then maintain the loss
    #2 Obstacle: very stressful job drives a motivation to ‘reward’ myself with treats like wine, cheese, and eating out. I have difficulty maintaining losses because I slip back into old bad habits of snacking and no portion control.

    • admin Mar 15, 2012, 1:43 pm

      Thanks Kristine. I appreciate the feedback and hope to be of help –

  • Alexa Mar 15, 2012, 1:34 pm

    1. My Number One Goal: To lose fat and weight through nutrition.

    2. My Number One Obstacle: Because of tendonitis, I have now been unable to run for two months, which was my primary form of cardio. Running is what helped me lose a lot of fat and see results when I initially became serious about weight loss. In addition, running allowed me to maintain my weight when I reached my goal. I have gained more weight, along with an increased body fat percentage since I became injured and am now faced with the obstacle of fighting off this plateau with very little cardio. At this point I can only do light biking every other day for 20 minutes. I have been giving it my all in boot camp and personal training, but there’s only so much that strength training can do in the fat loss equation. Working in two gyms, I have obtained the general knowledge of what is healthy and what isn’t, but I am now at the point where I need help zoning in and combing through my diet to alter things that can help me see results.

    Thank you Forest 🙂

    • admin Mar 15, 2012, 1:45 pm

      Great feedback Alexa, thank you very much. I sincerely hope I to be of help in reaching your ultimate fat loss goals!

  • Kendra Knauer Mar 15, 2012, 4:31 pm

    1. Goal – to get back in shape after having my baby.
    2. Obstacle – lack of time and sleep make it hard for me to plan meals, which leads to eating out and snacking.

    • Kendra Knauer Mar 15, 2012, 6:06 pm

      And it’s been hard for me to find a diet that caters to the nutritional needs of a nursing mom!

    • admin Mar 16, 2012, 11:19 am

      Thanks Kendra!

      You’re right – there are some special considerations for a nursing mom. Good to know and take into account as you’re trying to get back in shape.

  • Eric Hernandez Mar 15, 2012, 9:51 pm

    #1 fitness goal: Finish Vineman Ironman Triathlon in under 12 hours in July.
    #1 dietary obstacle: establishing a healthy balanced food plan for me and my family (Wife, 3 year old and 6 month old). Foods that keep me in peak shape and that taste good for the family without having to cook separate meals.

    • admin Mar 16, 2012, 11:25 am

      Thanks Eric.

      Good luck in your prep for the Vineman!

  • Ayodele Tushinde Mar 16, 2012, 7:12 am

    My number one fitness goal is to become a personal trainer someday. I have a long way to go to reach that goal, but it’s always on my mind.

    Since I can’t afford a gym or a trainer (or even new tennis shoes) right now, finance is my biggest obstacle. I wish I had someone who knew what they were really doing guiding me in person, but if all I have is me, then that is what I will continue to work with.

      Thanks for entering the contest Ayodele!

  • Lisa White Mar 16, 2012, 8:59 am

    Goal: To become slimmer/leaner through a clean diet and increase muscle tone through strength training

    Obstacle: While I do buy healthy foods from the grocery store, I have a hard time turning down not-so-healthy options that are presented to me at school and other places. Also, the healthy foods I DO consume, I tend to overeat. I’m not much in the self-control department, often times.

    • admin Mar 16, 2012, 11:29 am

      Hey Lisa!

      Good feedback … it’s true, eating clean on an on-going and consistent basis is the #1 thing that’ll help you hit your fitness goals!

  • Beth ashkin Mar 16, 2012, 9:51 am

    goal#1- to educate my two teenage boys and husband Scott on healthy eating and to lose about 70 lbs in the next year, lowering blood sugar as well. Plus I have two teen boys who play football and rugby, need to teach them how to eat during season and off.

    goal#2 – obstacle, old habits die hard, weekends and that evening glass of wine to relax after a long day. Have started heading the gym near our house 5xs a week but the food is getting me & us.

  • Jeanne Skondin Mar 17, 2012, 2:37 pm

    Goal : To change my decades of bad habits into positive habits that benefit my life (health, emotions, longevity and productivity).
    Obstacle: Grabbing the closest food item(s) (even if very unhealthy) instead of taking the time to think through the moment and choose more raw and nutritious food items. Also, remembering that I come first! Stress can take a backseat when my health and weight are in jeopardy. Jeanne

    • admin Mar 18, 2012, 9:53 am

      Hey Jeanne –

      Thanks for the entry. These are some great goals – I totally agree that planning ahead and thinking through your food choices is a critical element of success.
