Like many on here I have struggled for years to keep the weight off, I have only been under 200lbs twice since I was 18 that was in 2006 and 2010. I sat at home sick as a dog on NewYears day 2012 while family was out, I was depressed and again 248lbs and I swore i would get below 200 again, well it never happened, got down to 206 but that was it, I am now 218. I could wait until the new year but I'm starting today, my goal is 185lbs by June 17th, my birthday! I am using this thread as a weekly, or even daily journal. Weight will be updated once a week and will also update whenever there is a workout day and what I did.I have many reasons but I will be honest the two main ones are my kids and Strava...lol My eldest son is racing next year and I need to keep up. Second is Strava, I have a lot of top ten spots and some KOM's in my area and I want to improve all my times and the only way is to shed the weight! It's going to be a tough journey but I have had enough of not meeting my full potential on the bike, 2013 is the year!!
