I might join a gym in Feb/March, I don't want to fight the crowds that I'm sure are there right now.

The elliptical is my friend. More my friend than the treatmill.

My only official goal is to work out more and be able to run a 5k in a reasonable amount of time by the end of the year.

That said, I've lost TWO pants sizes and over 25lbs in the last 3 months due to medication side effects, and I have no intention of stopping now. I've been eating absolute **** and not working out except for what I do at work, so I figure if I actually TRY, it should come off even faster. My "tentative" goal long-term is to get to 160-180lbs, but I have to re-evaluate when I get closer to that to determine what is actually my ideal. I'm pretty muscular under all this blubber, so I'l never be 120 or something ridiculous like that, but I want to be at a healthy weight. I'm hovering at 258ish right now, down from 285ish.

It's SOOOOOO BORING OMGGGGG
but I have to do it. =< Every. year.

I become a much happier and faster runner once the weather gets better and I'm outside instead of on the treadmill... it's crazy.

I ran on a treadmill for 2 weeks and got so bored of it and I thought running was the most awful thing in the world. Then before the weather made a turn for the worse, I ran 3 miles outside faster than I ever have before and it felt awesome. Totally different feeling and now it's soooo cold and I'm dreading stepping on the darn treadmill.

I didn't mean it that way

I meant that I have more than 120lbs of body weight that isn't fat, plus having 0% fat isn't healthy, so there's no way I can physically reach 120 pounds unless I lose a LOT of muscle. And I don't want to do that. I want MOAR MUSCLES!

I want to get down to at least 150 this year. The lowest I've been in my adult life is ~160 around... eh... mid-2012? I'm hovering right around 200 now and feel awful. None of my clothes fit any more and I get winded way too easily.

My scale broke a month or so ago so I have no idea where I'm at now. I don't feel like I've gained or lost anything.

My goal is 40 lbs this year. I'm not sure where we will go from there but I think 40 is doable. I just need to make sure to take my metformin every day.
I will also make a goal of 40 with you laurelin. March 2014 will mark 3 years since i quit smoking and i've packed on 40 lbs to date. If I make the 40, I'll set a new goal but for now that sounds good.
