101 things to accomplish in 1001 days

I came across the Day Zero Project on a few different weight-loss blogs a while ago (I'm sorry, I don't remember whose!  If you have a list, let me know and I'll like to it and we call help each other reach out goals!) and remember thinking, what a fabulous idea.

I believe it is now it is my turn to make one  Considering I work best when I have something concrete I'm going after, I am hoping this will give me focus.

I'm making a 101 things to do in 1001 days.

The weight loss ones are a given, but this list should give me an opportunity to really focus on non-weight number related goals I want to work towards.

  6. Weigh below 190 lbs
  7. Weigh below 180 lbs
  8. Weigh below 170 lbs
