    My 2015 goal is to continue on my weight loss journey towards my goal. I am down 64lbs and have a ways to go so I want to stay focused and committed as I move forward. I would love to try for the prize with the shake and the notebook. I am looking for a great shake for breakfast and would love to start journaling my journey. Love watching you guys and keeping up with y’all! Merry Christmas and God Bless.

  2. Emily Hansen - December 2, 2014

    My GOAL is to lose my last 30 lbs so I will get down to 130 lbs. I was 197 lbs when I started my weight loss journey. My Goal is to continue high carb low carb days from the book you have written with your husband and to EXERCISE an Hour every day. This is for me so that I remember my goals so that I stay focused.

    • Emily Hansen - December 2, 2014

      I knew if I did not lose the extra weight I had that I would eventually keep eating unhealthily and become obese one day. Eating healthy has made such a huge different in my life. As for excerise I love to Zumba. Me and my family are losing together and I am excited to keep seeing results. Thank you Heidi and Chris for changing my life forever. Best thing to ever happen to me.

  3. Kari - December 2, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to focus staying on track with carb cycling and transform my confidence!

  4. Amanda Howell - December 2, 2014

    My goal for 2015 is to make a promise to myself to make myself a priority. My husband and I will be welcoming our first child in March 2015. We both want to get healthy and lose weight. We have suffered two miscarriages along the way and I have ended up putting a lot of weight on after each loss. It is so important for us to get healthy not only for ourselves but for our baby boy. Here’s to 2015 and making dreams come true!!

  5. Angie - December 2, 2014

    I just wan to make a commitment and stick with it. I want to make a change for my health and my children. I want to leave them a legacy, a future, a healthy future. I want to know about healthy habits and get rid off the old habits. I want to be able to go to the gym and complete a WOD without a problem and not to make an excuse why I couldn’t do a workout or why I didn’t go to the gym. I want to be strong and stay strong.

  6. Chelsey B - December 2, 2014

    My 2015 goal is for my husband and I to reach our personal fitness goals of losing the extra weight and toning our bodies, becoming healthy in general together with our kids to set them on the right path for their futures. My own little personal goal is to take better care of myself and take the time for mysel that it requires as I’m always putting myself and my needs last .

  7. Anna - December 2, 2014

    Our first baby just turned one year old. My 2015 goal is to tone back up and to run a marathon post-baby. I love reading your comments and listening to your advice. Your marriage, parenting, and fitness coaching are truly inspirational. Thank you so much for your uplifting personalities!

  8. Kem McClelland - December 2, 2014

    Thank you Heidi and Chris, and thank you to everyone putting their goals out there for all of us to see–all of you inspire me! My 2015 goals are to continue the journey back to health and fitness I started 3 months ago, including eating clean and going to the gym regularly. I will increase the number of days I exercise, increase the time and intensity of my workouts and work to build lean muscle. I know that focusing on fitness and health will have the added bonus of helping me lose inches (and probably weight, though I don’t get on a scale).

  9. Jessica - December 2, 2014

    For 2015, my husband and I are going to REALLY try to get healthy! We have your book, need to read it and get started.

  10. Alicia Sedillo - December 2, 2014

  12. Megan - December 1, 2014

    Hi!! Love you guys! You are truly my inspiration to get healthy and be happier!! I am a mother of 2, and just turned 30. I set a goal to lose 30# by my 30th birthday and I did it! I want to keep going! Being almost 150 pounds over weight is not something I want my kids to think is ok! So my goal for 2015 is to KEEP GOING! Head strong and carryin’ on! I would love to hit my goal and be in “one”derland by this time next year and I know I CAN do it! Thank you guys for always keeping us positive and keeping us inspired! <3

  13. Sally - December 1, 2014

    Hello!
    I am about to start my weight-loss journey next week and I can’t wait. I just finished reading Choose more, lose more – for life and I am psyched! It has been a tough two years for me, I am recovering from a severe broken ankle and my dad went through a kidney transplant this year and it really did a number on me physically, mentally and emotionally. I want to change my life, I have been struggling with my weight since puberty. My goal in 2015 is to change my lifestyle and the way I feel about myself, one challenge at a time. Thank you both for your inspiration and motivation.

  20. Karen Kinnard - December 1, 2014

    Before I turned 50 years old, I was healthy, slim and very happy. With life changes my body began to put on weight. It was awful to go from a size 8-10 to a 14 in 2 months. And as time went by more weight came on and it was harder to even lose 10 lbs. Now 13 years later I have exceed even my wildest dreams of how large I am. I weigh now as much as a large man. My body is putting on more weight every day. This has to stop, I cannot get up off the floor, my knees hurt, my thighs feel like I have a wad of fabric between them, my blood pressure stays elevated, my body hurts all the time and I’m so unhappy this way. So today December 1, 2014, I am making small changes to get my self ready to make the big changes. My goal is to be able to get up off the floor without holding on to something, my goal is to lose fat so I can wear a size 14 pants by next summer, my goal is to make my body feel better, my goal is to heal my 63 year old self so I can enjoy the rest of my life without being so unhappy.

  21. Lauren R - December 1, 2014

    My 2015 fitness goal is to make physical activity a part of my everyday life. I plan on trying and finding activities that I can do and challenge myself with that keep me motivated. I am going to make daily, weekly, monthly and yearly goals for myself in order to stay focused. I want to continue to incorporate healthy meals and snacks into my life and cut out the emotional and boredom snacking.

  22. Katlin V - December 1, 2014

    I spent 2013 and 2014 working on myself and my weight, and after losing nearly 40 pounds on my own, I want to work on being confident and happy…along with tightening and toning. Never had abs before so I think that’ll be my goal for 2015!

  23. Morgan Ward - December 1, 2014

    My 2015 fitness goal is to regain a healthy relationship with the gym an exercise. I have struggled with an eating disorder for years, which involved abusing my body and over exercising and under eating. My goal is to get back in the gym and enjoy the experience rather than feel like its something I have to to do.

  24. Morgan Ward - December 1, 2014

    My fitness goal is to have a healthy relationship with excretes and the gym again without abusing my body. I have suffered from an eating disorder for years and my relationship with the gym has never been healthy.

  25. Natalie - December 1, 2014

  26. Jacqueline - December 1, 2014

    Hi There,

    I just got your book delivered by the mailman. I’m from Holland, so it would take me some time to finish the book. Tried to look for a Dutch version, but there isn’t one….yes…that’s a hint..;-)

    I don’t know if you’re sending the awsome gifts to the Netherlands. If ‘yes’, then i would like to tell you “I’M IN!!!”. If not…well then i’m wishing you a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

  27. Lauren - December 1, 2014

  32. Mary Warburton - November 30, 2014

  33. Jenn - November 30, 2014

    My goal is to keep helping my 14 yr old daughter. She has lost about 40 lbs. She started at 223. She will be 15 on December 14th and she loves you and Chris. We watch your show and she really listened to what you guys say. I’m proud of what she has done so far. But I know it’s getting harder for her. She would be really excited if she got an email from you. Could you possibly send her words of encouragement to keep her on the right track? Thanks so much. You guys rock.

  34. Cassi - November 30, 2014

    My goal is to complete the Disney Glass Slipper Challenge and do the Coast 2 Coast Challenge. I’m down 50 lbs and have 30 to get to my optimal BMI. With my father preparing for his 4th surgery in a year, my health is a major focus in my life.

    My goal is simple eat clean, move more. My ultimate goal would be lose 100lbs, which is a lot on one year. My good friend had a charity event to raise money for t18 babies in August. It is a 103 minute trail loop race, I too participate and get done 7 miles done in that time. I want to start crossfit again and teach my kids too make healthier choices.

  37. Tara - November 30, 2014

  38. Alana911 - November 30, 2014

    I have a first time ever goal for fitness and health this year. I have spent my entire life floating and never looking at me and what was needed for my health. Just 5 months ago I was at 317 pounds and today I’m at 264 pounds. I had to take a long hard look at my life and what needed to be done. After struggle and a little and hard feelings with my family I decided I was putting my health first. I did not wait for a date on the calendar or for some one to help me the day just came were it was the right moment. I cant even say what the date was…… but I woke up and decided today is the day I get my life back. I have fallen more then a few times and given in to TV or temptation but only few times since I started and I even skipped Thanks giving dinner this year just to stick to my commitment. I’m not restricting or taking away anything from myself just choosing another path. My big goal this year is to try and figure out how to pay for a gym membership and how to use the machines with out being embarrassed. I don’t have a weight goal because I know this is going to take some time I have a goal of healthy and happy. I have a goal to a 5K in May in Montana with our close friends no time set just to finish. The big thing I’m looking forward to is going on a long bike ride on the trailed in Washington and being able to go all day to stop and swim have lunch and do this all with my family!!!

  39. Jessica - November 30, 2014

    My fitness goal for 2015 is to get back down to 125 (15 Lbs). And to be more intentional about my workouts.

  40. cindy g. - November 30, 2014

    I would love to lose 10-15 lbs and then maintain. Stay diabetic free and healthy.

  41. Tracy - November 30, 2014

    The first part of my 2015 fitness goal is to exercise and stay healthy during my first pregnancy. The second part will be to lose the baby weight and be a healthy, fit mom/role model for my family.

  42. Francine - November 30, 2014

    My fitness goal is to stop restarting and making excuses and start moving and eating correctly!

  43. Mrs. Bruce - November 30, 2014

    Just bought Choose More…planning to read it on my vacation and get started when we get home! Hubs is ready to lose some lbs and I’m ready to have a fit, healthy pregnancy! Thanks for all you do!

  44. Ronald Alexander - November 30, 2014

    My fitness goals for 2015 is to stay committed to a healthier lifestyle and loose weight. I’ve started and stopped a many times, but know that I’ll never reach my goals. Not having the energy to go to the park with the kids and play catch, is a place I never want to be at again. I’ve set the goals, become more active than I’ve been in years, and now as we head into 2015 the next goal is commitment. So the current 2-3days for 30-45mins I hope will increase and lead to s more active and thinner me.

  45. Jess Lundgren - November 30, 2014

    I’m aiming to loose the last 10 and maintain it.

  46. Lisa - November 30, 2014

    My fitness goal for December 2014 and the new year is to finally get in shape. I managed to lose some weight early this year but was sad and shocked when I traveled last week and was barely able to fit the airplane seat beat around me. (Note* I travelled in April and didn’t have any trouble) I’m so ashamed that I let myself fall back into my old ways. Starting today I have changed and will finally be proud of myself when this new healthy lifestyle will because easy for me.

  47. Heather - November 30, 2014

    My primary goal is to adopt a healthy lifestyle

  48. Heather - November 30, 2014

    My fitness goals are to lose weight but more than that to create and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

  49. LORI - November 30, 2014

    My goal this year is no more excuses. I need to lose about 20 pounds that I gained back after I lost over 70 pounds two years ago. I want to work out 6 days a week and do something for fun on Sunday, Fundays!

  50. Jenna - November 30, 2014

    I was just blessed a few months ago with my 3rd child, Elizabeth Grace! My body is now ready to workout! I was also blessed today with a gym membership! My goal is to workout 4 times a week as I know working out will help me feel good which in return will help me have energy for my 3 children and my hubby! I also have a goal of running a marathon ….or maybe I should start with a half marathon 🙂

  51. kristina g. - November 30, 2014

    2015- I want that 250lb back squat and to get my first muscle up! I just joined a new crossfit box that has awesome programming to get me there! =)

  52. Stephanie - November 30, 2014

    My personal fitness goal for 2015 is to instill in my family the importance of physical exercise and healthy eating, by cooking healthier meals, having healthy snack options available at all times, working out together as a family on a daily basis, and by limiting time spent playing video games and watching TV. I have struggled with my weight and health for the past 12 years, and I know the poor lifestyle choices that have lead me to this struggle. I have a goal to work with my family to make changes to our lifestyle that will promote happiness and good health.

  53. Dannel Mayhall - November 30, 2014

    I wud love the help to make 2015 my most fit!

  54. Nora Kue - November 30, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to jump back on the path of living a clean and fit life. I gave birth to my beautiful daughter in March and have been having a hard time getting into the gym. I am just so drained by the time I get off of work to get to the gym so I’ve been trying to work out in the morning before work (4am!). My husband is not home often because of his job so working full time and being a full time mommy can be exhausting. However, I am committed to do what I can to get healthy again by going to the gym at least 5 days a week as well as eating clean. I would love to win any of these wonderful prizes. Thank you so much!

  55. Sonja Werner - November 30, 2014

    My goal for next year started months ago. I am working to workout more, eat better and reach my 150 lb goal. Over a year ago I weighed 260 lbs and now I am at 194 lbs. I continue to seek people who are healthy and positive role models. Any of these packages would be amazing!
    Blessings!

  56. mary - November 30, 2014

    Just to get back into the gym and lifting.

  57. Sarah - November 30, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to be a healthier me and lose weight.

  58. Sarah - November 30, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to be a healthier me. That includes more exercise and losing weight. Made lots of life changes this last year and now it is time to make a healthy change for myself. I can’t wait!

  59. Kendra - November 30, 2014

    This year I plan on getting back on the healthy eating train. I need to begin with more fruits and veggies. I also need to do a better job of eating a good breakfast.

  60. Kaira - November 30, 2014

    My goals for 2015 are to be more consistent with my workouts, choose healthier options in food and how I spend free time, and I really want to do my first half-marathon next year as well as a Tough Mudder. I love CrossFit and HIIT!!! I have never had an issue with exercise and my weight, but my bad (sugar) habits effect my husband more than me. In previous years I have set goals that I don’t follow through with. For 2014, my goal was to be a better wife, student, friend, daughter, and sibling…along with eating healthy and working out of course. But my main focus was life and happiness while holding myself accountable when I fell short of those goals. If I had to evaluate how I did this year with all the ups and downs that life threw at me in 2014 I would say I met my goals, but still have room for growth in other areas. 2014 was definitely a good year for me…bring it on 2015!!!!!

  61. Rebecca - November 30, 2014

    My goal is to lose that last 15 pounds. I’ve already lost 130 and am so close to my goal! I’m going to continue with my diet an exercise regime and try to kick it up a notch

  62. Nikki Hessel - November 30, 2014

    My goal for 2015 is to lose the 45 pounds that I gained since meeting my husband! Four in a half years ago I meet my husband and I felt so comfortable around him I just did not care anymore and now 45 lbs heavier I am disappointed in myself that I cannot stick with working out and eating healthy. By the time my five year anniversary in May 2015 I want to have lost all the weight I gained. I do not want to just do it for my husband but also for myself so we can start a family, which means the world to me. I just want to be that energetic woman I use to be before I met my husband!

  63. Celina Acosta - November 30, 2014

    I have lost 35lbs and my goal for 2015 is to lose the last 20 and run a mini marathon in April. I do workout but these last 20 are so hard I would love to hear how to lose those last 20.

    • Team Powell - November 30, 2014

  65. Susan Haagenson - November 30, 2014

    Heidi and Chris,
    My 2015 goal is to eat better (less fast food) and exercise more. I need to lose over a hundred pounds, and I watch your show for inspiration. I can’t wait for next season!

  66. Jen - November 30, 2014

    My goal for 2015 is to become healthier in all aspects of my life. I need to lose close to 200 lbs.. So to start on that.. I need to move more instead of just sitting around and eating crap… I love you guys!!! I wish I could be one of your clients.. This would be the next best thing!!! Lots of love to you and your wonderful family!!!

  67. LouAnne Stachowski - November 30, 2014

    My goal for 2015 is to start living with integrity. I try always to be honest with others, and would NEVER break a promise to someone else. But I consistently make promises to myself that I have no problem breaking. In 2013 I made a promise to make exercise a consistent and permanent part of my life, and have been successful. Now it’s time to make a promise about my eating habits and keep that longer than one day. So for 2015 I will work on lifestyle changes that I can stick with for the rest of my life.

  68. Shannon Chase - November 30, 2014

    my goal right now is to hopefully heal from a running injury and get back out there running to keep in shape. I am on crutches for 7 weeks right now with a stress fracture of the hip, torn labrum, degeneration and bone marrow edema so no fun times right now but making the best I can for myself. I started my healthier me in the summer by following the high carb low carb after buying both books and the workout DVD and have done awesome. I had an 80-100lb weight loss goal and have lost almost half of that since July but it has slowed down a bit since being in the crutches. I Do still watch what I eat and get my exercise on my crutches. I have gained some back but I am optimistic and determined to get back on track. My goal is to hopefully get back out there running doing 5ks and doing the dvd workout and training for a 10k. My one ultimate goal is to help my mother loose the weight she wants as well and be an inspiration to her and show her the healthy ways and the rewards that come with it.

  69. Denee - November 30, 2014

    Thanks Heidi and Chris!! You are both such an inspiration.
    My goal for 2015 is to lose 60 – 80 pounds and exercise more consistently.

  70. Amanda - November 30, 2014

    My goal for 2015 is to lose the 15lbs I gained last year. In 2013, I lost 40lbs, then gained some back last year. So my goal is to lose it!

  71. holly - November 30, 2014

    my 2015 fitness goal is to get stronger than ever before. I have 2 kids, and Im fitter now than before I had them when I was in my 20’s.

I try to stay connected to some running groups online to keep me motivated. Heidi is a great motivation too and your show is awesome! I keep telling myself if these people that you work with can do it, so can I. !!!! Would love a gift from you to keep my mojo going to get myself trained for my 2015 marathon!

I lost my mother and my sister in 5 months this year and it was just to much for me to handle. But I know through exercising and eating right I can be back at my healthy weight. I love your gift basket and think it’s really neat that you all want to share. Thanks for your transparency and accountability to yourselves. Your love for people and your family has motivated me to red educate my life to being healthy and strong.

  85. Becky - November 29, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to lose 15 lbs. I had list 25 lbs 4 years ago and had done pretty good in maintaining my new weight. For the first time I my life, I hit healthy. I are right & worked out 6-7 days/week. Then I hurt my back, bulged disc, and gad to have surgery. Since then, I’ve put 15 lbs back on, seem to have forgotten how to eat healthy & have been fearful of hurting myself and have gotten lazy again. I need to correct this before I get back to where u was, and worse, go beyond that. Heart disease & diabetes run in my family. I know better. I just need to figure out how to get back to that place.

At 300+ I have to change something NOW! I love all the tips and motivtion both you and Chris provide. Thank you for making me realize I can do this!!

  101. melina - November 29, 2014

    For the past 10 years I have focused more on being a mother of 2 girls, ages 10 and 5. I had my first daughter at a very young age and focused on just being a mom. I lost the baby weight because I was still in high school and had access to the gym and had to participate in weight training if I wanted to pass the class. In high school we don’t realize we have a personal trainer and take that for granted. Now that’s what I miss about high school. Lol. Then 5 years later I had my second daughter and haven’t been able to lose that baby weight. I became a stay at home mom for 2 years and added to the weight. I was just told by my doctor that I have developed polycystic ovarian syndrome due to my weight gain. I need to lose some weight to be healthy for not only myself but for my girls. I am a mother but I need to remember that I’m also a woman. I need to get healthy to feel good about myself and to be an even better mother.

  102. Kristina Torr - November 29, 2014

    My goal for 2015 is to lose more weight and to get into better shape. I am not sure what 2015 has in store for me. Right now I am in a wheelchair and I am learning how to gain my independence back! I know losing more weight will only help with being in a wheelchair!

  103. Kris May - November 29, 2014

    My goal is to lose 60 lbs and to run a half marathon! You two are such an inspiration! I really want to finish what I started and lose this weight! I have come so far but I still have so far! I want this so bad! Thanks for all you to help each of us to be the best we can be!!!

  104. Shannon - November 29, 2014

  108. Toni - November 29, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight 🙂

  109. Christine - November 29, 2014

    My goal in 2015 is to work on making time for my own health and wellness. I am a student, a full time employee, a wife and a mother. I am busy but I need to make sure that I am taking care of myself. I have had lifelong food issues. I went on my first diet when I was in the third grade and there have been many since. I eventually had weight loss surgery two years ago which has given me a great tool for helping with my lifelong battle. However, I have not necessarily made any more time for myself or dealt with the issues that cause me to eat. Those are the issues I want to continue to work on in 2015 while also trying to get increased activity.

  110. Becky - November 29, 2014

    my 2015 goal is to get into shape so my daughter is proud of me at her wedding. I’ve been struggling to take off 40 pounds, finding it so difficult the older I get. You two inspire me, so I hope I can look to you as I struggle to make my way.

  111. Gina Ullman - November 29, 2014

  112. Megan - November 29, 2014

    My goal is to eat healthy during this entire pregnancy!

  113. Donna Hart - November 29, 2014

    My goal for 2015 is to finally lose this 60 pounds that I gained after I quit smoking. Now I’m fighting high blood pressure and COPD, so losing this weight, should help- not to mention, I turned 60 this year and it seems to really slow down the loss. I still say someone should do a reality show that works with seniors and weight loss. We’re not dead, yet!!!! Thanks, Donna

  114. Jessica - November 29, 2014

    My goal is to be more physically active and to loose a few dress sizes

  115. Adrienne - November 29, 2014

  118. Emma Lawson - November 29, 2014

    My husband is in the military and is gone a lot. Currently, he is on an assignment that is no contact. This is going to extend into next year. Thus, my goals are totally related to him! I started running on 1 OCTOBER every day that he is gone. So far I have run over 200 miles. My 2015 fitness is goal is to continue my running streak every day he is gone. Its when I feel most connected to him. My other goals are more specific and inspired by your Heidi! I want to be able to front squat with better form and more weight. Finally, my goals are to get my sports nutritionist degree, and (hopefully!), get pregnant with our second baby once my hubby is back for good! By running everyday and doing some lifting, my goal is to be super fit going into this pregnancy.

  119. Melissa - November 29, 2014

    My goal is to not focus as much on the number on the scale but how I feel and my stamina/strength. I’ve done a good job at getting at a good number on the scale but now I want to feel strong in my body so I want to focus on weights (kinda scared but I know I can do it) and feeling fit!

  120. Lisa - November 29, 2014

My 2nd goal is to reach 60 lbs lost before I get my mothers dress. Anything to help me reach my goals would be very much appreciated!

  122. Lori - November 29, 2014

    My 2015 fitness goal is to make ME a priority. This past year I have been focused on helping my son and his new family, who are living under my roof. It hasn’t been easy; I’ve been an emotional wreck. I know things will improve if I take care of myself first. Thank you!

  123. Ruth Vanhoy - November 29, 2014

    My fitness gold is to get back to where I was before 2-28-13. That’s when all my anaphylaxis episodes started some from meds, others from stress. I so enjoy all the advice the both of you have to give. I would love to win one of these prizes. My moto is although I keep getting knocked down, I have to keep getting back up. Even if it means starting from the beginning again!!!!

  124. Stephany Rock - November 29, 2014

My goal is to become healthier and happier this year- I completely changed my mindset in the last year regarding fitness and I love the direction my body (and therefore my heart and mind) are going. I want to discover more things my body can do that I didn’t realize. I’m almost to a regular pull up, and I will get to a handstand pushup. And a two hour half marathon. All while focusing on feeding myself and my children in a healthy, wholesome way. Thank you for all you do for the wellness of the world. You’re amazing, Powell Pack!

  141. Shari - November 29, 2014

    My goal for 2015 is to start enforcing the healthy habits I have wanted to enforce for a while, make that promise to myself to follow through, and lose 35 lbs. I want to achieve these goals before my husband and I start trying to have kids. I also want to achieve this goal soon because I have been studying personal training and my test is at the end of January. Most of all, I want to achieve this goal so that I can love my body again and have the self-esteem I had when I played sports…before the bad boyfriend that tore down my confidence by calling me fat after he helped me gain weight with his lazy and unhealthy habits.

  142. Rhonda - November 29, 2014

    I been trapped in my own body since I was a child. Unable to have children because of my obesity.
    3 years ago I lost 200 pounds just by eating healthy and exercising. Then life made a turn for the worst for me and I gained most of the weight that I had lost back.
    My goal is to claim my body back and make 2015 a successful year where I can feel happy once again.
    I have always felt like a broken butterfly and I know I can gain my wings back if i work hard enough at it.

  144. Kristi - November 29, 2014

    My fitness goal for 2015: In May, I turn 40 & I want to be healthier & be well on my way to dropping my extra pounds. I’m 130 pounds overweight & that is even more evident on my 5 foot 2 inch frame. About 3 weeks ago, I started walking at home with exercise videos & I am doing it every day. At this point, I’m only able to walk about 12 to 15 minutes at a time (at the pace of my videos), but each day I’m stronger & able to do more. I have lost 10 pounds (and nothing I’ve ever done has ever helped me lose more than a few pounds.) I am determined to get healthy & eventually to get down to around 130 pounds.

  145. Leslie - November 29, 2014

    my goal is to finally lose weight. I have never been able to lose weight healthily. I have battled an eating disorder and don’t binge and purge but now just binge and gain weight. I currently weigh 149 and now have a thyroid issue. I want to in 2015 be able to eat right and lose weight. I work out 6 days a week but never lose a pound. So hopefully I will win a prize that will help kick start my weight loss goal of 35-40 pounds

  163. Carolina - November 29, 2014

    I have left a five year relationship this year for better. I made many goals, have a roof for myself and my son, find a job after being laid off (right before I had to leave my home), work on myself (emotionally and physically). I left my old life in May and have not looked back. I have lost 16 pounds since May, it has not been fast but I have continued to lose weight, I have not gained weight. I found an entry job and have since been promoted to a better position. I am paying off bills I have accumulated when I was out of work and from my previous relationship. I am in a much better place than I was just six months ago. I am so excited to see what my future holds.

  164. Danielle - November 29, 2014

  169. Kendall Damewood - November 29, 2014

    my goal isn’t to live in September weight but just to start working out again. I want to work out 5 times a week, I’ve desired it needs to be in the morning because by evening I’m to tired to do anything. I know I’ll lose weight from working out but it’s about being healthy. I also want to eat better and drink plenty of water.

  170. Michelle McNeil - November 29, 2014

  174. Jenifer Johnson - November 29, 2014

  179. Ruth - November 29, 2014

    I am struggling to get on track to fitness. My goal for this time in my life is to get more active, so that I can keep up with my 4 grandchildren ages 6 to 4 months. I retired early to help take care of my parents who are in their 90’s and help my daughter with her 4 children. I need to get myself going so that I have more energy and feel better. You know the old catch 22, I am too tired to exercise but if I exercise I would not be so tired. How to get started is my problem. My schedule now is crazy with traveling over 30 miles to each site, opposite directions, and finding time for myself.
    I have enjoyed watching the TV show where people are helped to get in shape, of course I really do not have a number to meet just overall fitness. If you have suggestions to get me started that would be so appreciated.
    Thank you for your encouragement.
    Ruth

  188. Laura - November 29, 2014

    Hi Heidi! I started carb cycling this year and felt great! After some great success, I did start feeling overwhelmed with the constant food prep and decided to “take a break. ” The extended break has got to end! So, I started preparing to make cycling easier for me….I bought an awesome high performance blender for juicing and smoothies, and have exercise program in mind. I am ready to get started again for 2015!

I had to commute & get up very early but I needed to challenge myself & change my diet. I just had surgery so although I can’t do boot camp right now I’ve learned about making healthier choices. My Dr. Encourages me to walk and to get some exercise. After my recovery & healing I plan on getting back to working out. I would love to win the gift basket because I am all about getting excited about working out & taking care of myself!

My husband and I work out every morning at 5:30am and for inspiration we watch Chris’s TV show Extreme Weight Loss. When we feel we can’t run that extra mile or do that next sit up, we look at how Chris motivates people and we keep going. Normally we start fitness programs in the New Year but this year we will just be continuing what has become a daily routine.

  212. Hadda - November 29, 2014

    I’m still trying to lose the extra 20 lbs I still have. I planned to do the Spartan Race and the NYC Half Marathon.

  213. Lily - November 29, 2014

    I promissed myself I could apply to join the army (my dream) when I’ll be able to run a half marathon in less than 2h and when I’ll be confident enough to walk in the street looking in people eyes and not at my feet . So my fitness goal is to run the half marathon in June. I just started running 3 weeks ago and ran my first 4 miles race today.

  214. Lucy Grubbs - November 29, 2014

    A healthy body and soul.

  218. Jamie Pent - November 29, 2014

    Heidi & Chris,

    Just a few months ago I started eating balanced meals every 3 hours and it is so hard to adjust to! I was doing really well, weight was coming off and I was feeling so positive. I just fell of the wagon with work being more busy & stressful, plus holidays and traveling.

    It helps to hear your tips on what you do when traveling (protein powder + jump ropes on the go). There really is no excuse. I just need to be more disciplined.

    I turn 30, March 2015. I want to make my thirties the healthiest decade so far. I want it to launch me into a healthier, happier me later in life. I want to reach my goals and inspire my family & friends along the way. My goal is to go from 30+% bf to 13%!

    I truly do want this, but there are days when I can’t find within myself the drive that I have on some days. It’s like it magically disappears. It really does help reading your posts & watching your videos. I am grateful for the Powell Pack and all you’re doing to change the shape of America.

    Thank you lovelies & Merry Christmas <3
    -Jamie

  219. Kim Herring - November 29, 2014

    I’m a runner. I’m attempting my first half marathon in May 2015 and recently was told that I have a blood clot in my leg and can’t do any activity at all. This is years of hard work after a knee injury that almost led me to wearing a brace my whole life (I want going to let that happen). I need a healthier me so that i don’t have to go through these medical mishaps that keep me from being me. I’m overweight and I’m not the best athlete, but I don’t want to let anything stand in my way.

After a rotator cuff surgery in one shoulder and torn biceps in the other shoulder, it has been very difficult to get back into the swing of things.

  252. wendi - November 29, 2014

    HI! My fitness goal is to lose all my baby weight( about 30 #) and fit into my size 2 and 4 jeans again. My 2 boys are almost 3 and 4 1/2 and full of energy! I have a twin sister that does not have kids and she is still a size 4 and I hope to look like identical twins again. I don’t like the way my size 8 pants hug my middle section and since I had gestations diabetes with both boys my tummy was the size of twins both times! The boys were both 8.9# each and I struggle with separated ab muscles and am not sure what exercises work to flatten them. I have tried sit ups and crunches but they both made my abs feel like they were being pulled apart and were extremely painful for almost a week. I am working on cutting out most of the white flour and sugar from my diet and eating more protein to help burn the tummy fat and build muscle. I have also found that apple cider vinegar taken 3+ times a day helps speed up my metabolism. I would appreciate and help eating healthier and working out more and these prizes would be amazing! Thanks!!!

  253. Stacie Vanderver - November 29, 2014

    I have had such a journey in the last 5 years. I had twins and was on bed rest and gained about 100 pounds. After delivering them I went on a strict calorie counting and workout program. I lost all if the weight plus even more from where I started. I got pregnant again just a few months ago and just began eating what I wanted and scared to workout because of my very tough pregnancy with my twins. I jut miscarried and had to have a d and c surgery. Completely devistated I ate more bad food. I just gained like 10 pounds and am disappointed with myself. I am still under my very first pre-pregnancy weight but just feel defeated. My goal is to get pregnant again and continue my clean healthy eating and working out.

  254. Amanda Daniels Schreier - November 29, 2014

    My fitness goals for 2015 are: to regain my strength and flexibility from my younger years, and join the Back Handspring Club! Even in my cheerleading years, that goal was beyond my reach due to fear. It kept me from making the squad and changed the course of my life (I went into the arts instead of pursuing my fitness goals). 2015 is THE year I get my groove back, I can feel it! 😀

  255. Matt - November 29, 2014

    Since I had my son 7 years ago, I have been neglectful of myself and my health and am the heaviest I’ve ever been, at least 75 pounds overweight. This week, my son said to me “Mommy, I get really nervous talking to people. You are the only I can talk to – you are my best friend”. I felt like I got hit it in the head with a cast-iron frying pan. I thought about not being here for my son because of obesity related illnesses. I have to get my act together for the one little person who counts on me so very much. I am on day two of clean eating and promise myself and my son that 2015 will bring the healthiest me I have ever known!

  288. Katrina Simons - November 29, 2014

  289. Amalia - November 29, 2014

    My goal for 2014 is to not to lose weight, but rather to gain fitness. I am in my mid twenties, with the guy of my dreams, and I know I will want to start a family in the near-ish future. I want to be strong not only for myself, but for my family. I want the energy I used to have when I was younger before school and studying trapped me in a chair for hours on end.

  301. LDottore - November 29, 2014

    I’d love to loose about 30 lbs this year. I’ve been up and down a lot the last two years and while I’m working out and getting heather I haven’t rebalanced the food in take.

  302. Liz - November 28, 2014

    My fitness goal for 2015 is to stop hating my body and living in a land of absolutes. I have been fighting an eating disorder (anorexia with bulimic tendencies, and orthorexia) for years and am working towards a balanced approach to health and fitness. Lifting has helped me let go of weighing myself and feel “strong” again, however, this process is long. Every day is a battle and every day there are choices to make. Towards health, or towards sickness.

    My goal: to take one step towards freedom and happiness in health.

  303. Mea Harris - November 28, 2014

Would love to win the iTunes gift card, as I have had some major financial setbacks over the past 3 months so I can’t really justify spending money on music downloads, but I really want to add the song “happy” to my running playlist!!

  308. Robin - November 28, 2014

    I’m planning on reaching my goal in 2015 because my health depends on it. Started over too many times and 6 wks ago started carb cycling with bod-e and this is the best decision in my life.

  310. Tina Francis - November 28, 2014

    Hi Heidi! I just want to say that I absolutely love you and Chris and am so inspired by you both. I check your Facebook page and blog daily for recipes and fitness tips 🙂 My fitness goals for 2015 are: to continue to become stronger (I have a bad back injury), lose about 50lbs to decrease my pain, and be more active with my 2 year old son. My back pain has held me back so much in the past couple of years. I am no longer allowing the back pain to hold me hostage. Every day I either go to the pool or the gym and push through. I’m determined to lose this weight so I can get back to my old self. I’m not giving up on being able to have another child and run a 5 KM. I know these goals aren’t in my near future but I’m setting small realistic goals so I can later accomplish my big goals! 🙂 Again thank you again for being so positive and relatable with all of your Facebook and blog posts. It definitely makes this journey a lot easier having someone to look up to 🙂

I am walking, but not much else because I can not afford a gym membership. I have a 6 year old and want to be able to coach his soccer team next year instead of just sitting on the sidelines. You and Chris are an incredible inspiration daily. I read your blog and posts, and they encourage me daily. I am thankful for you and your family. I want to be confident in my own body. My goal is to be able to ride the El Tour De Tucson. 🙂 <3

    In 2015, I am going to push myself to get lean and fit, something I have never been. I’m 21 and have never had the experience of being proud of what my body looks like. There isn’t exactly a specific weight that I want to be at but I know that it’s lower than where I’m at now. I’ve lost almost 20 pounds in the last couple months and I have hit a rough patch with my motivation. But I just invested in a new pair of running shoes that have me excited to run again! By next summer, I would love to have the first summer I’ve felt comfortable in a bathing suit, and a summer that I don’t feel ashamed of pictures.

  348. Cassie S - November 28, 2014

  351. Amy - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to kick start my good eating and workout habits again. I am a 8 year breast cancer survivor and had lost my way with a healthy lifestyle. I got myself back on track for 2 1/2 years and now I can see myself slipping back into bad habits again. I also just want to say I think the way you help people not only with losing weight but regaining their life back is amazing!

  352. Bertie Rose - November 28, 2014

    2015 – workout 70 minutes 6 days a week, eat 5-6 meals a day with right balance of carbs and protein, and two healthy fats. Gratitude Daily. Lost 38 need another 38!

  355. Autumn Higbee - November 28, 2014

    I have many health problems and I want to start feeling better. I want to be an example for my two daughters who are struggling with health problems. As a family I want to improve our health and outlook on life. I need this change for me.

  356. Nathalie Thibault - November 28, 2014

    My goal for 2015…is taking care of me. In 2014 I took care of my dad who passed away in May and I lost myself in sadness. After a few months, I come back on my feet, bought a rebounder that I love and start to follow a better diet… I’d like to loose 25 lbs and have better blood pressure. Thank you for helping me to do that… you are my inspiration to continue my healthy lifestyle 🙂

  357. Michelle Vincent - November 28, 2014

    My fitness goal is to find a fitness program I can stick with and to eat healthier

  358. Tracey - November 28, 2014

    My goal for 2015 is to not have to have a high tibial osteotomy on my left knee…Apparently if you loose 10 pounds you take 70 pounds of pressure off your knees…I`ve lost 13 since Oct 3rd but have lost inches as well…more inches then weight! Using your shakes and love them..go to aqua-arobics 6 days a week and only because there is none on saturdays. I go to see my surgeon on Dec 16th..so I`m hoping he will give me a few more months to continue with the carb cycling, shakes and exericse to loose more to avoid the surgery! trying to get enough cash together to get Chris`s book so hopefully I`ll be able to in January ! 2015 is going to be hopfully my year to get healthy and get this weight off once and for all!!

  360. Treena - November 28, 2014

I am signing up for a 1/2 marathon in April 2015 and would really like to build up some muscle. Thank you both so much for everything you do and I wish you and your family a happy holiday season.

  361. Katy Hollands - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 fitness goal is to get healthy and stay healthy so that we can have another baby and I will not be miserable the entire pregnancy and then have MORE weight on top of the baby weight after two boys under two years old! 🙂 I have 23 more lbs to go! 🙂

  362. Reenie - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to get into the 100’s and reach a healthy weight and maintain it. I joined the Be Your Best program and am learning so much just through volunteering and giving back to the community along with reading the books. I am ready for this new chapter in my life where I am in control of my weight once and for all.

  363. Leaha - November 28, 2014

    I would love to win!! Love how motivated you and Chris are!!!

  364. Evelyn - November 28, 2014

  365. Jodi Murphy - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to accept the body I live in. Along with that I want to love it and treat it better. I want to accept my age, embrace my strengths and my weaknesses. I want to be healthy and feel better. I plan to walk more, run more, bike more – live more and see it reflected in my physical form.
    Thank you for the encouragement and ideas!
    Jodi.

  366. Ashley Lemke - November 28, 2014

    My goal for 2015 is to actually start working out more often. I have been a bit lazy in the few years that have passed since graduating high school, and the closest I have come to a workout each day is taking trips up and down the stairs at work. My work does involve a bit of lifting here and there, but the max weight I have lifted there is around 20 lbs. I took a fitness class in college, and while I vowed to keep up the workouts, work and other commitments got in the way. I have not been good at finding an equal balance that includes exercise and eating healthy. I was active in sports in high school (Badminton was my most active sport), and I feel like once I graduated, I sort of fell off of the exercising wagon. Any of these prizes would help me to get back on track and to lose the weight I want to lose, and keep it off!

  367. Kerry - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal… Get pregnant with my 2nd child and have an equally healthy pregnancy! Sweatin’ for two, baby!

  368. Sherry Bell - November 28, 2014

    i want to go to the gym instead of merely paying the membership fees

  369. Jenny Baker - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 fitness goal is to participate in a bodybuiding/figure contest. I had a goal of this when I was 18 and my dad put a fast stop to it (he was horrified by the idea of me not only posing in a bikini in front of a crowd, but also having muscles in general). Two kids and two decades later, I want to pick up where I left off (I was in incredible physical shape back then). I’m almost 40 years old so it feels a little unobtainable (and perhaps even silly for someone my age to be doing this NOW), but it’s a dream left undone and gosh darn it, I want to make it happen no matter how old I am!

  370. Alissa - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal will be just like my 2014 goal: I will treat myself well, eat healthfully, exercise regularly and, in the process, lose weight. I’m already down 54 pounds this year, and I still have 1 month left

  371. Brittani Fryman - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to get and stay in the 140’s and do an actual pull-up.

  372. Michelle - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to get healthy for my 2 beautiful kids. I want to be healthy and happy ,to be able to keep up with my energetic 5 year old daughter and 3 year old son would be great. Motivation is key and these two are mine for the rest of the year and beyond!

  373. sherri Berard - November 28, 2014

    My goal for 2015 is to stay healthy, keep working out and train and complete a 5k charity run! I also want to develop my abs to look amazing and of course then feel great! Thank you Heidi and Chris for your inspiration! You have such a beautiful family!

  374. Barb Lopez - November 28, 2014

    Love you two and all you stand for! You are an inspiration! My goal for 2015 is to lose 50 more pounds – already lost 20 on your card cycling program! I want to be able to actually run a full 5k the whole way without stopping to walk some of it!

  375. Brian Tackett - November 28, 2014

    My fitness goal for 2015 is to finally break this 2 year plateau curse ive been struggling with and finally push below 300 pounds. Ive struggled with my weight my entire life. the last 8 years have been hell but the last 3 years ive slowly regained control. After getting up to 590 pounds and being hammered with severely failing health, I gave in and opted to go with gastric bypass. Since then, ive dropped to 380, but im struggling to push lower. I still have all kinds of issues I am trying to work around but I am not giving up. I certainly have my moments of weakness where i feel like giving up, but after letting the emotions and rage go for a bit, i reign it all back in and get back on the horse and try again.

  376. karen - November 28, 2014

    My fitness goals for 2015: run another half marathon, maybe try a full marathon and be active at least 4 days a week.

  377. Michele Kaniarz - November 28, 2014

    My goal is to have my walk increased to a jog, lose 20 lbs in the next 2 months, need my asthma medicine less to not at all, improve my nutritional intake. I am learning more about nutrition on my own. I have 1 child at home, 3 nephews I took in this month when their mom died and a husband disabled. I need to keep myself healthy

  378. louisa - November 28, 2014

    I just want to get healthy to be around for my daughter.

  379. Christina DeBiasi - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to lose 50 pounds to be at a healthy weight … staying active by exercising everyday and watching what I eat. Since May 2014 I have quit smoking and still smoke free and have also lost 25 pounds

  380. Phoebe - November 28, 2014

    2015 goal is to do a push up NOT On MY KNEES!

  381. Attiga Wolfe - November 28, 2014

    My goal for 2015 is to lose 70 lbs . I have been doing crossfit since August and have lost 9% body fat since I started. I now am getting a little better at it and I want to continue getting healthy and strong! My Christmas list has nano 4.0 on it so hopefully I won’t have to buy them myself! Lol

  382. Heather - November 28, 2014

    My goal is to be more accountable. To myself and my family. To follow through on my goals so that I can be there and keep up with my kids.

  383. Alissa - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal will be just like my 2014 goal: I will treat myself well, eat healthfully, exercise regularly and, in the process, lose weight. I’m already down 54 pounds this year, and I still have 1 month left

  384. emily - November 28, 2014

    My fitness goal is to continue on the journey i have started. I have managed to keep a moderate intensity workout despite how i have felt this holiday.

  385. Tamara - November 28, 2014

    My first goal is to run a half marathon in june and participate in my first spartan race in July. Oh and to lose my baby weight after giving birth this past August.

  386. Heidi Carroll - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to just get healthier. I have decided that if I just strive to be healthier and happier, the weight loss will follow right along.

  387. Teresa Sweet - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 fitness goal is to finally take the step into becoming a Personal Trainer. 🙂 I want to be able to help save/change lives as fitness has become such a huge part of my life. I’m a married mom to 3 boys, a full time business owner so my life is super chaotic but hey, what’s one more thing added when it’s something you totally believe in? 😉

  388. Sara - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 fitness goal is to get the body of an athlete. I am tall and have always been bigger than a twig but a weight or a number are no long my goal but a healthy body, a body I can be proud of.

  389. Mandie - November 28, 2014

    2015 goal have my baby boy and get back into a routine with my husband daughter and baby boy. Eatting healthy, training and being the best mommy and example to my children!

  390. Holli N - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 fitness goals are to be able to do 5 strict consecutive pull-ups, 5 consecutive handstand push-ups (strict/Kipping), an independent rope climb and back squat 200 pounds. I want to continue progressing with what I have started this year: working out, promoting wellness to others, eating well and hopefully compete in a crossfit competition. I dedicated this year to becoming healthier all around after my mom died in 2013 from breast cancer. While she was sick I gained weight and loss all sense of healthiness. Now I am down 30 pounds, emotionally feel better, consuming a paleo diet and doing crossfit 3-4 times a week. I want to live long and prevent my chances of cancer in honor of my mother.

  391. Morgan - November 28, 2014

    my fitness goal in 2015 is to get back into a routine for myself. I really focused on helping others reach their goals in 2014 through Barre classes and supplemental help, but 2015 I will focus on adding variety back into my own workouts. Thanks for the opportunity to share!!

  392. Danielle D. - November 28, 2014

    Over the past four months I made a committment to taking care of myself for the first time in years. As a social worker and overall people pleaser there is very little time that I make me a priority. I was doing really well eating healthy and working out with a trainer with the money I earned picking up weekend shifts at work. And then my world came collapsing down. My grandmom become critically ill and needed emergency surgery resulting in a 21 day hospital stay. During this time I slept at the hospital and spent every waking moment in the hospital with her monitoring her progress, talking to doctors, and making decisions. I missed a lot of work and most of all completely got off track with my healthy routine. I ate most meals in the hospital and my only workout was walks to get coffee. My grandmom is now out of the hospital and while I am her primary caregiver medically at home I am now making me a priority again. My goals for 2015 is to get back with the trainer 3 times a week, regular gym 2-3 times a week, lose 70 pounds, and run my first 5k by April. I have come to realize through all of this that my health is incredibly important and until I am healthy I am limiting my happiness. I need to lose weight to feel confident but I also need to lose weight to take care of my grandmom and to take care of me.

  393. Kim W. - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal is stick with Crossfit. I started June of this year and have been going 3-4 times a week. I haven’t stuck with a workout plan this long before. I have had 3 major foot surgeries, the last one having my ankle fused in 2013, so I kind of gave up on exercise because I couldn’t run and I was so out of shape and weak. Well, discovering that I can lift weights and do WODs, I have found myself again. You both are so inspirational and have helped keep me motivated, especially the handstand pushups Heidi. Wow.

  394. Stacy - November 28, 2014

    I want to clean up my eating and get in to a good routine!

  395. Threasa Nall - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 fitness goal is to start losing again. I need to start logging on myfitnesspal again. And I have a goal for walking twice a week and bumping that up after a reasonable time. I also will have the goal to feel better about myself which will help me want to be fitter.

  396. Tracy - November 28, 2014

    In 2015 I will continue my journey to live a healthy lifestyle, by eating healthy and going to the gym until I’m at a healthy weight.

  397. kim campbell - November 28, 2014

  398. Marissa Rapoza - November 28, 2014

    – Get Chris and Heidi to do a Burpee challenge cause I know I can win! (haha jk)

    Ok so my last goal is the biggest and something I’ve struggled with for a long time. Let go of my past and move forward. I know I can’t change the past or undo the damage done to me but I can move forward and I need to break up with my past.

  399. Jodie Lin - November 28, 2014

    Happy Thanksgiving! I would love to win a prize to help get me back on my feet post surgery. No running or heavy lifting for me for the next 10-12 weeks, no walking for 4. 🙁 I feel like I will be starting from scratch.

  400. Kayla A - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to lose this freshman 15…that turned into 50! I’m 22 years old, and would love to get back to the shape I was in as a cross country runner in high school, and as a fourth degree black belt, I’d like to get back into the dojo! I’d also like to be capable of doing any type of fitness I want including crossfit, dancing, hiking, running half marathons, and everything else!

  401. Jacalyn Anderson - November 28, 2014

  402. Danae - November 28, 2014

    In 2015, we will welcome our second baby and my goal is to be a mom who has energy to play with her kids! I’ve never struggled with weight, but I’m also far from fit. My energy levels are non-existent and my goal is to keep up with my kids and also work out with my husband (who is super into fitness and would die if I won those Reebok shoes!). 🙂

  410. Courtney - November 28, 2014

    Recently my husband and I joined CrossFit together. We absolutley love it! We barley see each other due to our crazy work schedules, but now we get an amazing work out in in under an hour a day, that we get to do together, followed by a trip to Starbucks to catch up for 5min, then off to work we go. My fitness Goal for 2015 is to to keep improving at Crossfit together, getting stronger together, pushing ourselves furthur and running The Disneyland Half Marathon together next September for my 30th birthday. Not only can I not wait to bust out that 13.1 miles in our absolute favorite place in the world, Disney but I get to run it with my prince charming who I may not get to see all that often but who is always encouraging me to be the best I can be and who has been by my side in life and at the gym. I have a whole new respect for Fitness this year because it has given us the opportunity to be closer in a new way.

  414. Stephanie M - November 28, 2014

    My fitness goals for 2015 are to get stronger, leaner and more fit. I’m not looking to “lose weight,” I want to become stronger and more fit and losing weight will be a side effect. I want to complete a 5K and maybe even a 10K and I want to hike every mountain within an hour’s drive from my house! I want to be fit enought to get back into biking and back into swimming. 2015 will be my year!

  415. Joanne - November 28, 2014

  417. Martie - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to get back my diet/nutrition and exercise back on track. In 2004, I lost 50 lbs and kept it off for 6 years. In 2010, I dropped 25 more for a total of 75lbs. I was the smallest I had been since 8th/9th grade. (I’ve always been overweight.) But, in 2012 I started slowly gaining and now I am 40lbs heavier. I have started going to the gym again and started eating healthier and tracking what I eat. I have already lost 6lbs during the month of November. So, my 2015 goal is to eat healthy and addmore activity to my daily routine in order to lose the 40lbs gained and hopefully lose about 15 more to reach my goal weight. I would love to win one of your baskets as motivation and an incentive :).

  418. Teresa - November 28, 2014

    I want to feel like ME again. Happy, healthy, and 30 pounds lighter! I can do it!!

  419. Jimmy Brittain - November 28, 2014

    I went to the gym for two years and lost 80 pounds. My job was off shored and now I am not making as much money. I am going back to school though to better my family. But without the gym for a year I have regained the weight. I am hoping that some plans go through in 2015 so I can go back to the gym and start losing weight again. I am going to lose weight, reduce my medical ailments, and see my kids grow into the awesome adults I know they are! Living on a prayer and hope as I am about to hit rock bottom again!

  420. Amanda Nichols - November 28, 2014

  424. Laura - November 28, 2014

    I have always enjoyed being a fit individual but was a typical treadmill girl and really only focused on running! I was obsessed with burning calories and ran off most of my caloric intake for the day. After a knee injury caused by overuse I’ve had to explore different ways to keep myself fit. I now focus on strength training and am beginning to learn Olympic lifts. I feel so much better than I did when I was strictly running. I am now learning the importance of feeding my muscles so I can perform better and build a stronger healthier body! My goal for this year is to perfect my deadlift form and work hard to get better at cleans!

  425. Angelia - November 28, 2014

I will be 40 next year and for 11 years my husband and I have been trying to have children, I NEED to get in shape so I can finally have my ultimate dream. To become a mom. Time is running out for us, I NEED to do this. Thank you guys. You both are amazing people. 🙂

    I love following your and Chris’s posts. They always encourage me to do more. I have already lost around 30 pounds and have been the lightest weight I have ever been in my life. I have kept it off for about 5 years. Would love to lose 20-30 more pounds, especially since I am a bridesmaid at my best friends wedding next year.

    My goal is to not give up and continue making a life long change towards healthy eating and exercise. I always seem to stop monitoring (trying), to lose weight once I’ve lost about 5 pounds. I am hoping to change my mind set and continue trying to lose instead of stopping the weight loss.

  453. nicky - November 28, 2014

    He doesn’t know it yet but it is truly my goal to introduce my husband to healthy eating and exercise. It will be a tough goal!! We have a son getting married in October and I want us all to look our best. ….him included. Thanks for all your help and guidance! !

  456. Amanda Rammer - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goals are to lose the remaining 30 pounds of the 80 I set out to lose. It’s been a slow process but I’m not giving up. Any of the gifts would help. Also I’m thinking of doing a half marathon next year.

  458. Dawn - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal was made along with my husband. We are vowing to try and hit the goal that we were not able to make this year due to injuries sustained in a car accident.

    Weight lift three times a week for thirty minutes, enough to maintain some muscle but not so much as to wear me out for running.

    Feel AWESOME in a bathing suit!

    Feel AWESOME altogether!

    Oh, and religously watch Extreme Weight Loss… honest to God, I watch episodes online during long runs on the treadmill… running right alongside your clients, and I whisper, “Yes, you can! I can, too!”

    My goals are to lose the last 60lbs (after 100lb loss) also I want to jog a whole 5K and do a trail or obstacle 5k. I wrote you on Facebook and wasn’t supposed to walk after a motorcycle wreck so jogging is a big deal….the year after a tough mudder!

  481. Danielle Villegas - November 28, 2014

    I’ve already lost about 35 lbs (about 50 to go) the slow and steady way in the last 6 months, and I’m not going to stop! I have some incentive to keep up my pace and not stop as my cousin and I have signed up to do a Color Vibe run in April. No slowing down now! We are both in our upper 40s, so we need to keep plugging along to stay healthy!

  482. Rebecca - November 28, 2014

    My goal for 2015 is to get back on track and continue my goal from this year. I feel off the wagon after losing 30lbs (due to health stuff) and need help getting back on and losing the other 75lbs that I need gone. Please help!

  483. Julie Littlefield - November 28, 2014

    My fitness goal for 2015 is to run a half marathon. It’s something I have talked about but always found an excuse not to do. This is my putting out in the universe to make it happen.

  484. Michelle - November 28, 2014

    Heidi and Chris, I would really love to win your fitness gift! My goal in the coming year is to regain my life. I have lost myself, desperate to make a change! I am almost double my ideal weight and really feeling it in my body now! I watch your show and see all the wonderful success stories. I wish I could be on that show. I feel unable to make the changes on my own. Feeling desperate!

  485. Becky - November 28, 2014

    My health goal this year is to quit drinking all soda, no eating out & go to the gym or do some form of exercise every single day!

  486. Randye Bollinger - November 28, 2014

    For 2015 I will be completing my transformation that I began june 6 2014, 6 months ago. I, completely on my own and with the positive help from my amazing husband encouraging me all along the way, no pills or special gimmicks, have lost 60 pounds so far! I am so excited I can’t add.y believe it. For the year 2015, I already have my surgery date with a cosmetic surgeon to do skin removal, repair all the stomach muscles that have been cut due to multiple abdominal surgeries, and ( don’t judge please,) add ” up top,” this surgery has been a dream for twenty years but I could never lose the weight. I am finally doing it! I would optimally like to lose about 30 more pounds before my surgery day. I exercise for between hour and a half and 2 hours most days, and cook awesome healthy meals, no cutting out any food groups and no prepackaged meals or special shakes. I don’t feel like I am ona diet, it’s a life change. I can’t even explain how, for the first time in my 47 years, am finally proud of myself. I love your show and you and Chris are an inspiration.

  487. Demari - November 28, 2014

    To hit my goal weight of 145 lb – 150 lb in 2015. My husband and I have a deal that when I hit my goal he will take me to Hawaii…really would like to hit that this year.

  488. Leah - November 28, 2014

    my fitness goal in 2015 is to lose 80 pounds !

  489. Becca Jordan - November 28, 2014

    My goal is to lose weight, get healthy and be a role model to my children. Right now I’m approximately 100 lbs overweight, which is terrible in of itself but myself and my 2 children have a condition called x linked hypophosphatemia. This condition does not allow our bodies to absorb vitamin D, calcium or phosphorus as a normal person would which causes our bones to be very soft and bow. I have had 5 straightening operations on my legs as a child and as you can imagine the added weight is extremely painful. I want to change my life and be a positive role model for my children so they never have to face the pain and difficulties that I do.

  490. Kristen Dileonardi - November 28, 2014

    My fitness goal in 2015 is to truly love myself. I eat clean, I train hard, I help others. I’m told I’m an inspiration and a great motivator. When I look in the mirror- every insecurity, every ounce of flaw.. It all just zooms in somehow. I suffered from eating disorders for a long time and I remember being 80 pounds and still grabbing “fat” that i needed to lose. It’s a scary place. When everyone around you swears you radiate beauty and all you see is a mess in the mirror. You hear “don’t worry about how others think of you” well this is one instance where I wish I could believe what I hear from others. So my goal is to love myself for the bad ass mom, wife, trainer, daughter, woman that I am.

  491. Kerri - November 28, 2014

    I want to break the habits of eating horribly and nourish my body with healthy foods and actually give my body what it deserves, not what it craves. I cannot wait to start my journey. God is good all the time.

  492. Tiffany Adkins - November 28, 2014

    My goal is to live healthy. To set an example for my daughter and be the mom she can be proud of… And be the me I can be proud of. It’s time…

  496. Melyssa - November 28, 2014

    In 2015 my goal is to tone, I have lost about 40 lbs and need to tone my arm, legs, and abs. And still work towards losing another 40 lbs.

  497. Stacy Tsoukatos - November 28, 2014

    I need to lose weight for life

  499. Karen - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 fitness goal is to be able to do full push ups.

  500. Sierra Centenari - November 28, 2014

  504. Teresa - November 28, 2014

  506. Jess M - November 28, 2014

    My fitness goal for 2015 is to finally stick to a healthy lifestyle 🙂

  507. Stephanie Robertson - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goals are to lose weight (60 lbs), get healthier, and be a better role model to my son. The older my son gets the more I’ve noticed that my habits are his habits. That has resulted in us both being overweight. I can no longer do this to myself or to him. 2015 is the year of change! We are going to do this together! It’s not easy to do since I work full-time, am a full-time student, and my husband (also my son’s daddy) is in the Air National Guard and travels the majority of the time. I am determined to do this though. With my son being a teenager now (13), he’s wanting to do better – so what better incentive than that! Plus winning one of these prizes wouldn’t hurt either! 🙂

  508. karola - November 28, 2014

    I love to exercise but what i love the most is running . I started running about 6 years ago and when I started I never thought running a marathon. Well so far I have done 3 and the last one was NY city few weeks ago. My time was pretty good 4:08 min. For 2015 I want to would be able to crush my time and do. Sub 4 and why not a Boston Q. next year I sing up to run Paris and Chicago. Hoping to do 3:45. Another goal is do more weight training and get more muscles. Thanks !

  509. alejandra - November 28, 2014

    Hi! I’m going to start a new page in my life soon and would love some things to help me through my new journey. Wishing every one the best of luck in their health journey.

  510. Ashlie Sharp - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal would to be hit my transformation goal before my husband gets back from deployment. Also to live a more healthy and active lifestyle not only to benefit myself but my children also.

  511. Melanie Frohlich - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to finally get back to my pre-baby shape now that my youngest is 1 &1/2. I’ve been helping my older brother lose weight, because he’s always been overweight. Since I’ve been helping him, I’ve been falling behind because he can’t physically do certain exercises that I would like him to. He’s lost 50lbs so far, but has plateaud because he has gone back to some of his old eating habits. So, I would like us to both have a successful year!

  512. Dona - November 28, 2014

    My fitness goals for 2015 are:
    1. Get healthy!
    2. Lose 40# and tone up
    3. Complete my first half-marathon (walking and jogging)
    4. Thoroughly enjoy my second half-century!

    I have spent most of my life overweight, with very low self-esteem. It’s high time I focused on ME! I am worth it!

  513. Diana - November 28, 2014

    Kids know what they learn not only from their parents but their extended family as well…every time I see more statistics on childhood obesity… I wonder how much worse can it get as this issue can affect their future….I cannot be a role model for my 5 year-old triplet niece and nephews and their 7 year-old sister unless I myself also set an example…so the year 2015 is it for me…..no more excuses …I want to be the “fun” aunt… the one they can do things with ….the one that isn’t worrying about a weight limit or will I fit….I want to be a healthy role model….a true example of healthy living…I want to be the “me” I imagine myself to be…and not the “me” I am now…..a new start.. a new beginning…and a new lifestyle…..and all the joy that comes with feeling fit……………..

  514. Laura - November 28, 2014

    My goal is to run a 5k. Between working full time, school full two, and two small kids I seem to lose my free time quickly 🙂

  515. Ally Pell - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 fitness goal is to devote time for myself to finally shed the excess 25 pounds from my college days. My eating habits are healthy so I have been able to maintain my current weight. Now I need to focus on exercising to tone up! Love your blog and the show!

  516. Erica Marion - November 28, 2014

    2015 goals – string more than 5 pull-ups, run a race averaging less than 9 min mile, work out more at home when I can’t get to the gym.

  517. Cassie - November 28, 2014

  518. Dani Steele - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 fitness goal is to get rid of the baby weight once and for all! I plan on committing to a 100% gluten free diet and setting aside 3-4 days a week that I can do a mix of high intensity cardio & weight lifting! My kids need a healthy mama. More than that, they’re deserving of one. I commit to caring a little more about me, so I can care for them a lot better!

  519. Tracy Ruggiero - November 28, 2014

    After watching this last season of Extreme Makeover I was inspired to register for an Ironman 70.3 triathlon in June 2014. I have weight to lose about 30-40lbs and have been mostly unsuccessful in my attempts for 5 years to make nutrition my priority. I am hoping that this commitment of training for event, along with my 2.5 years of CrossFit combined with serious nutritional help will help make me the leaner, healthy athlete I have been longing to be

  520. Erica - November 28, 2014

    My goal for 2015 is to recover (completely) from knee surgery and to start running for the first time, ever! I want to learn how to love myself, instead of waiting for other people to love me. I want to lose the extra pounds, but I really want to gain knowledge, and self-love, more than anything else.

  521. Lacey Dunmire - November 28, 2014

    My goal for 2015 is to stop making excuses. I’ll eat right, workout regularly, lose a little weight then just stop. “Life got in the way” seems to be my biggest excuse. I’m done with that. 2015 will be my year. To kick it off I ran yesterday for the first time in months and got in a 5k before celebrating the holiday. It wasn’t pretty and it hurt but damn it, I did it.

  522. Lisa Rapone - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to complete my transformation! I started in 2010, hit a wall in 2012, but maintained some. This year was rough, but it is time to commit to myself and start making those promises! Thank you!

  523. Carey Plowman - November 28, 2014

    My fitness goal for 2015 is to get back on the band wagon and stay on. I did so well and lost a lot of weight, then 3 different personal trainers i had left my gym and I injured my foot, had to stop teaching Zumba, everything fell and I gave up. I reached out to other people and wasn’t getting any help. I just gave up and stopped caring for myself. I ate whatever I wanted and stopped working out and gained weight back. I hate that this happened and can only blame myself. Life happens, but it is up to me personally to decide to give up or power through. I took the easy way out and now I am back at square one. I have just changed gyms (way too much drama at my old one), have a plan, and ready to get back to it. Trying to find a couple people to keep me accountable and partner with me. Im excited! My motivation was gone and I am ready to be back at it! Thanks for all you and Chris do. You guys are simply amazing and have truly been blessed with an amazing gift and I love how you guys are giving back in such a huge way. Thank you for that!

    My 2015 fitness goal…. I am going to start off by hopefully getting your newest book for Christmas and learning from it. (If I do not get it for Christmas, I will be buying it the next day!). I have been stuck in a consistent spot for the past few years and just need to tighten up and lose about 10 lbs (which has been a struggle for me) and I plan on accomplishing this in the early new year and keeping a consistent body weight instead of going up and down. I also love when I am eating healthy as I feel soooo good and don’t crave/even want any sweets (well okay I do still want them the odd time!) and am not only looking to continue this but to build a consistency for the rest of my life (instead of yo yo ing). Some physical goals would be: accomplishing some races (one being the Spartan race – signed up today!), doing a pull up and then increasing that number by the end of the year, a walking handstand and possibly even a handstand push up and to do a bridge. Besides becoming leaner, I also want to work on my flexibility. I have a few ideas on how I am going to accomplish these goals and one is to make fitness fun! I have recently started taking a gymnastics class, which was a dream of mine, and I have been loving every minute of it. I am also planning on taking my dog outside for more runs as it is not only good for me but great for him as well. Getting fit to me is not just how I look on the outside but how I feel on the inside physically and mentally. I want to feel good about myself a strong majority of the time and to do this I am not only going to start in the New Year but I am actually going to make a change today! Love you two and your family, you are all such an inspiration and I look forward to seeing what you are all up to next! 🙂

    My goal is not only to lose weight (50lbs) but it is to actually become fit. I would like to be able to enter fun events like half marathons and Spartan races without the fear of keeling over during the race haha! I want to really be in good shape for once in my life. It’s not about being skinny. It’s about feeling good/looking good.

  526. Amber - November 28, 2014

    My goal for 2015 is to continue my weight loss journey. I have 200 lbs to lose and as daunting as it sounds I know that small changes equal big steps

  527. Lauren Larson - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goals will start this Monday. I’m ready to make a change for good and stop yo-yo dieting. I’d like to lose 30 lbs and get to 25% body fat. That’s the first goal. Then I’d like to get to 18% body fat. My CrossFit goals, though, are to be able to do unbroken double-unders, use a 24″ box with ease for jumps, get my 500m row under 1:55, and run a mile in under 12 minutes. I know I can do it – I’ve just got to focus. Thanks to you both, I feel motivated when I watch your videos or shows!

  528. Crystal - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal was to run the LA Marathon in March, but unfortunately I broke my ankle earlier this year and my recovery has been tougher than I expected. I’m finally back up and running (well beginning on the running part). My new goal for 2015 is to lose some of this weight I put on, start my marathon training and complete a half marathon in preparation for the 2016 LA Marathon that I will be completing.

  529. Leah mathews - November 28, 2014

    Plan to continue my weight loss journey and get to my goal of 100 lbs lost by this time next year. Hoping to have another baby in 2016 and need to prepare my body to conceive. Losing weight will definitely help! Want to be an example to my toddler and family

  530. Christine B - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 fitness goal is to participate in two or more group exercise activities that I can enjoy with friends (or make new ones!) – perhaps spin class and golf? 🙂

    Happy Holidays from snowy Chicago!

  534. Lara - November 28, 2014

    My goal in 2015 is to take off the baby weight ! (Due in 2 weeks!) And be able to run faster … just keep up with my son by the time he can walk!

  535. amy - November 28, 2014

    My goal is to lose 100 pounds I’m tired of being the fat girl. I want to change my lifestyle. I’m tired of people saying oh you can’t have that ur on a diet. I also plan on exercising more

  536. Christina Caldwell - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to finish what I started. I’ve lost 45 pounds and have 120 more to go. I’m recently divorced with a 4 year old and there is way too many adventures to have and being more fit I could do more with her. She works out with me and keeps me accountable too. (Should seriously see her face) This would help out!

  537. Julie Justice - November 28, 2014

    Now that both fascias have torn and are on the mend from PF…. I am soooo ready to get my walking program rolling and get this weight OFF once and got all.

  538. Becky - November 28, 2014

    My goal is to be healthy and as pain free as possible. After 3 surgeries in one year my body is run down and I have no energy. I want to walk in a 5k like I did before the surgeries started.

  539. Karen R - November 28, 2014

    My goal is to continue my strength training in hopes of alleviating the chronic hip and back pain and to lose 25 pounds.

  540. Renee - November 28, 2014

    My goal is to lose 10 more lbs and tone everything. My biggest goal is to keep it off!

  541. Michele - November 28, 2014

    i just ordered your book and I’m so excited to start eating clean when I get the book tomorrow. I have no problem exercising. In fact, I’m running a 1/2 marathon on Sunday. However, I struggle daily with eating. I’m about 30lbs overweight and hope to conquer my poor relationship with food. Wish me luck! And I would love to win any of your gifts. Love, michele

  542. Karen - November 28, 2014

    I’m looking forward to getting double unders and pull ups. I also want to run a couple of races, including at least one half marathon. I just need to figure out a good balance between crossfit and distance running.

  543. Shannon - November 28, 2014

    I’m a huge fan of both of you on the EWL shows for sure. I’m a strong believer in the carb cycling as well. My 2015 goal is to continue carb cycling and would like to lose another 15 to 20 pounds too. Plus push myself to getting into a routine at my gym more frequently.

  544. Jen Mooney - November 28, 2014

    HI! My goal for 2015 is to be a better example for my 9 yr old daughter. I’ve noticed she’s picked up some of my bad snacking habits and has put on a few pounds. I need to change now before it gets too hard for her to overcome.We are blessed as a family to have natural athletic abilities. We just don’t focus on them at the moment. Looking forward to a very active 2015!!!! You guys continue to be an inspiration! Thank you!

  545. Martha - November 28, 2014

    We have started a weight loss challenge at work. So far I’ve lost 17lbs in 7 weeks! I have one year old twin boys that keep me busy. My 2015 fitness goals are to continue to do my very best at my work’s weight loss challenge and commit more time to exercise while still balancing precious time with my boys and husband. I also want to learn to eat healthier and get back into running. Our family loves you Heidi and Chris!

  546. Karen - November 28, 2014

    I need to start to focus on weight loss and fitness in 2015! Have to! If I don’t I have the filing I won’t live long enough to enjoy my kids and grandkids. I just need motivation and help to get there, where to start, what to eat, and how to keep going. I want this so bad, I need this so bad!!

  547. Pennie Rubbelke - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 health and fitness goal is to lose 105 pounds, train for a marathon and to get fit and healthy. I want to transform my life and encourage those in my life on the way.

  548. Michele - November 28, 2014

    In 2014 I have been able to shed 80 pounds. In 2015 I would love to get rid of 70 more. I now work out 6 days a week. Mostly from home. Videos and a stationary bike. I enjoy doing 30 day challenges. I would love to work up my stamina to run more. I can just walk/jog now. I believe your gifts set could add a little encouragement to keep the motivation going.

  549. Kristen - November 28, 2014

    I want to hit the 100 pounds lost mark and become a personal trainer/Zumba coach! I want to be able to run a race with my son as well:)

  550. Stefinoodle - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 fitness goal is to keep working hard and taking care of my knee injury (respecting my body and my limits). I’m only 24 and I want to stay strong and healthy for a long long time 🙂 Muchooo mucho love from Montreal, you guys inspire me so much!

  551. Rita T - November 28, 2014

    My goal is not a number or date but to simply become healthier and make better food and exercise choices.

  552. Christal Bevans - November 28, 2014

    I want to get more toned and defined and keep up with my running to push myself harder to do some races and get stronger, leaner and more confident:) Thanks for the inspiration!!

  553. Shelly johnson - November 28, 2014

    My Goal for 2015 is to prove to myself and others that you don’t have to have allot of money and a gym membership to make your goals. And I am going to lose 35% of my body wight by this time next year. And I wont be doing it alone. Because of my bad choices my son is also unhealthy for being 12 yrs old. My parents made bad choices that led me on my journey to bad health and this is me breaking that chain this next year and starting a journey of health that I hope continues through my kids and grandchildren.

  554. Melissa - November 28, 2014

    To get in at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day and drink more water!

  555. Nicole Patterson - November 28, 2014

    I’m excited to check off a half marathon in 2015!

  556. Sarah Sandbak - November 28, 2014

    To get a little fitter and leaner each day.

  557. Maren Urkov - November 28, 2014

    I want to take fitness to a new level this next year and real focus on toning and trimming. Most importantly, I want to be a good role model for my two girls. I want them to remember that exercising can be fun and we do it to make us feel good and not just to have a small number on the scale. Even at 6/8 years old, they feel pressured at school to be “skinny”. Makes me sad.

  558. Philippa Wyatt - November 28, 2014

    My goal for 2015 is to get back into working out. Since stopping I’ve gained 50lbs and feel so tired.
    I’ve put the word out on social media and am getting some friends together to join in!

  559. Laura - November 28, 2014

    In 2015 my first fitness goal is getting certified as a Wellness and Nutrition Coach and also personally finding that happy place of maintenance of my new healthy body. And learning to stay there. No more losing and gaining the same 10 lbs over and over

  560. Krista - November 28, 2014

    my 2015 goal is to continue to learn healthy living and to up my workout.

  561. Aline Smith - November 28, 2014

  562. Brandi Troyer - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 goal is to have a heathly, safe and active pregnancy. I just found out I am pregnant and want to make sure I show my family a healthy lifestyle.

  563. Sandy Wagner - November 28, 2014

    My goal is to keep the promise I made myself to get fit. Your t.v. show inspired me to transform my life. I have lost 68 lbs total since January 2013. My husband had a health scare and is considered a medical miracle. Well this was my wake up call. I started at 262 and I am down to 194. I still have a way to go. Although I have not been able to formally run in a 5k I can run that far. I would love to run in one. I workout in some fashion everyday even on my lunch break at work. I close my office door and I do cardio workouts, P90X, or something of the sorts. I am down 5 pant sizes and feeling great. Thank you for kick starting my new lifestyle!

  564. Heather - November 28, 2014

    My goal is to somehow get this weight off. 2015 has to be the year. I’ll be 60 at the end of December. This has gone on for far too long and need any help I can get. I love you Heidi and Chris. What an amazing couple to be able to do this for your fans.

  565. April - November 28, 2014

    get healthier, more fit, loose around 50 lbs, and actually run a 5k (instead of my usual jog/walk).

  566. Karen McCormick - November 28, 2014

    Lose these last 15 pounds from my last baby 🙂

  567. Debbi - November 28, 2014

    I have been on my weight loss journey for the past 15 months and getting closer and closer to my goal weight. I just need to lose my last 35 pounds. My fitness goals are to keep toning while slimming and I’m training to be able to jog my first 10k, which I have never done before ever! I hated running before I started on this incredible journey, but now have come to love it. I’m doing things now that I never could do as a kid :). Thanks for all your love and support! Carb cycling totally rocks!

  568. Mackenzie Curwen - November 28, 2014

    My fitness goals for 2015 are to get back into crossfit after having baby # 2. She is only 6 wks old so I’d love to get firm again and lose the flappiness 🙂 Most importantly of all is to set a good example, for my 2 daughters, on how to be happy and healthy.

  569. Michelle - November 28, 2014

    My 2015 fitness goal is to lose my post pregnancy weight and run a 5k in June!

  570. Jessica - November 28, 2014
