So this year I haven't been very active on here but have been making progress with my weight loss. I started 2013 at 156.6 and am ending at 139.4 (about 17 lbs lost). At one time I was down to 136.2 but the last 2 months of the year have not been nice to me ... Thanksgiving, Christmas, and minimal working out. I am not going to beat myself up about it and will start the new year with fresh goals. Still continuing my ultimate goal of 125 but more of wanting to get lean and fit not so much just the weight loss. I want tone and muscle definition. So here's to a New Me for 2014.
