Hi All! Happened upon the sparkblog today and thought that getting involved in this kind of team would be very good for me. I am a type A personality TO THE MAX! So the fact that I can't make myself lose weight NOW is difficult for me. Now, logic would say that since my BMI is just fine and my BF% is in a good range, that I should chill and focus on being happy and healthy, but as a former cross country and track runner, it is difficult for me to see my body not in peak condition.
So...long story short, I started the same .5 lbs per week goal myself two weeks ago. Hoping that lowering the bar on expectations online would transfer to my mind as well. Here's hoping.
Very much look forward to meeting people who I can support and who will help me keep a healthy perspective :)

so I got rid of my weight goals, because as I am lifting, my weight is going up, but my body fat % is going down, so I don't want to discourage myself from being healthy...body fat % goals will be coming soon!
