So, things got massively derailed due to a death in the family (my little nephew). And as much everything seems a lot less relevant now, conversely I'm inspired to make the most of my life, which includes getting fit. I am back into my jeans for the first time since Christmas, which feels good. Haven't yet stepped on the scale - don't expect that it will have moved too much, but I'm happy that clothes are fitting better and people have noticed that I look better. If I keep going with the "eating better and exercising more" plan, I should notice a real difference by mid-summer.
Anyway, look forward to getting back into things here. Congrats to everyone who has seen improvements and positive energy to anyone who needs some extra motivation!
