2016 was a year of challenges. As of January 1, 2017, I weigh 220 pounds. I feel uncomfortable in my body, my clothes don't fit, and I have no energy.

This year I will re-gain control over my weight and bring it back down under 200 and beyond. I will track what I eat and keep my calories in range. I will get back to running at regular intervals and prepare for a race or two in the Spring and Summer.
