I forgot this site existed until I received an e-mail shortly after new years! Wow, what a blast from the past!

I've never been one for new years resolutions, but this year I just "want to do better than last year" which.... last year was rough, and shouldn't be too hard to beat.

Sadly any progress I made back in 2012 was quickly lost after a few major life changes. Back to square one for me! This go-round, I want to also focus on mental health and not just physical. I know there are a lot of different avenues I can improve on - maybe this will help me be more accountable to myself. Either way, baby steps!

Currently I am starting at 31 years young,125 pounds, and I am 5'10" - putting me just into the 'underweight' category, which I usually hover around. I realize that might not be the usual reason people are on here, but it has been something I've struggled with my entire life. I am hoping first to move to a 'normal' weight range, and I think it's realistic to be nearing my goal in about 6 months if I do it in a healthy manner. I'd wish myself luck, but luck has nothing to do with it! Lets go!
