    Coming on the forum, I've noticed that I've become obsessed with numbers so I thought it would be interesting to look at what they are for each of us. These are mine:

    I only have 1 life and I want to live it the best I can.
    I have 2 hips I need to protect.
    I have 7 lbs to lose before I become "overweight".
    I have 8 weeks until my weekend in London when I want to have lost a total of 28 lbs.
    I want to lose 10% of my weight.
    I want to fit into a size 16
    I have lost 17 lbs so far.
    I don't want to be fat and 60.
    522 posts on minimins since I last came on so there is always so much to read and help. (God bless minimins)
    1300 cals is my daily allowance.
    2300 cals is my BMR
    There are 3600 cals in a pound of body fat.
    I need to eat 151,200 less cals to reach my target weight.
    The diet industry makes about $100bn a year and I want to stop giving them my money.
    1,000,000 reasons to lose weight and 0 to stay the same.

    Billiant post! Great Idea!

    Mine are...

    1lb is my first goal, just to see something come off! and I'm taking it 1 day at a time.

    3 Children that need me to be fit and healthy!

    23 points (ww) is my daily allowance.

    I'd like to fit into a size 10 even if just once and I maintain a size 12 afterwards.

    4 stone of FAT that I need to shed!

    I'd kill for a 27 inch waist again!

    1 promise to myself that I'm going to do it!

    11 stone 10 is what I weighed this time last year.

    Size 8, 10 and 12 clothes are all packed in 3 large suitcases upstairs waiting to be worn again.

    4 is the number of fabulous months I have the privilage of knowing our baby boy.

    4 is the number of years I have the privilage of knowing my beautiful little girl.
