My hopes and plans for this year have not come to fruition and I find myself starting over yet again. I am now at my heaviest weight ever and feel utterly exhausted at the prospect of losing so many pounds. I know I can't stay motivated if I thi... Read more

Lost 1.6 lbs total despite the scale going the wrong way on the last two weigh-ins. I have decided not to focus so much on the scale for a while. I will focus instead on steadily building my fitness level by running as often and as strongly as I... Read more
