I'm new-ish here (been lurking pretty much forever!) and whilst I wanted to avoid posting on Jan 1st for fear of looking a little predictable, that *was* when I started trying to lose a bit of weight.
I'm not huge by any accounts at 147, but with a tiny frame and carrying all my weight on my stomach and back (I suffer with a serious lack of bum or hips, and wear size 10 on the bottom and 14-16 on top), I don't look amazing atm.
So. To hopefully melt the 27 lbs I have left to lose by April/May-ish, I'm basically watching what I eat. It sounds stupid but I *know* which foods are going to make me feel rubbish and fat, and which are going to give me energy, stop me feeling bloated and make me happier. So I'm going to eat less of one and more of the other, basically.
I'm also going to try out a little ab challenge with myself along with a few runs (which I love, but do to little of because of the crap weather), and eventually work up to doing the 30 Day Shred in February or March. I started it last year and it genuinely made me feel like I was going to die, so I'm hoping that running 3-5x a week might help me to prepare a bit!
Mini goal 1 - 140 lb by Feb 1st.

Mini goal 3 - 130 lb + NORMAL BMI by March 1st
