The fight of 2014:
Last year was a rough year filled with changes, stress, and transitions. The result was going back to undesirable eating patterns, losing motivation to WO, and putting on over 30#. That puts my current weight close to what it was when I first started SP. Now is the time to learn from the experience, set all the failure aside, and fight to press forward.
