Just wanted to share a quick update! This past week I reached one of my goals: get under 200 pounds. So far this year I've lost 11.4 pounds. That's around three pounds a week! I should definitely reach my goals.
I don't know if I've shared my updated goals yet, so here it goes. Feel free to check up on me and ask me how I'm doing when you see me or talk with me. It's extremely helpful to have people to be accountable to.
Weight Loss Goals:
Starting Weight: 207 lbs
Starting Fat Percentage: ~24% body fat
Goal Weight: ~165 lbs
Goal Fat Percentage: 8-10% body fat
Goal Date: April 30, 2012 (my birthday)
Weight Gain Goals (after losing fat, I'd like to put on muscle):
Starting Weight: ~165 lbs
Maintain: 8-10% body fat
Goal Weight (with muscle): 175-180 lbs
Goal Date: December 31, 2012
I'll be writing another post soon with info about my current workout plan and eating plan. Feel free to share comments or ask questions!

Happy New Year.
Like many people, I am starting the new year with a resolution to lose weight, get fit and be healthy. This is due to the fact that I did terribly at keeping up with my diet and exercise during the holiday, and sadly, even gained back weight I’d previously lost a couple months ago.
To be honest, that’s mostly why I haven’t kept up my fitness blog here.
But I’m doing it, and that’s what’s most important. So today is again DAY 1. I’m starting anew, with a desire to set fitness goals and make plans to reach them.
So, for those of you who may be in a similar situation: welcome to 2012.
New year, fresh start.
