Small win - big boost for me

Even with being down on my inability to sustain my riding and weight loss to meet all of my goals from a year ago. It hit me a couple minutes ago :

I'm lighter than I was a year ago! Its only ~6 pounds, but that is the first time since 2004 that that is true year to year.

Yeah me! I can build on this for helping keep me going this year.

Excellent work! It's all about perspective, as they say. I think you have quite a bit to be pleased about, less is always better than more (weight wise, at least)

+1 Six pounds is six pounds less to lose.

I haven't weighed my self since September. I guess I should track it better, but I kind of go with how I feel and how my clothes fit.

I'ts time for new, smaller, pants.
