I have struggled with my weight ever since I quit smoking and went from working a labor intensive job to a desk job. I put on 70 pounds in a year, and it has stuck with me. I looked great as a size 8, and that's what I'd like to get back to. I'd also like to put on a chunk of good muscle. Being as small as I am, I'm built naturally very much like one of Tolkein's dwarves, hence the login name.
I'd rather look like one of World of Warcraft's dwarves - more muscle, less flab. I'd also like to clear up my skin, be able to run [a marathon], and maybe take up a sport.
I've been able to drop a good twenty pounds in the last six months, which I promptly put back on when I relaxed, thinking I'd made good progress and didn't have to stress is as much anymore. Lesson learned. No more yo-yoing. I'm getting serious.
