    My year isn't as good as yours! LOL!

    There's been some good and some bad, just like always. I didn't really make any specific goals because I didn't know what to expect this year. I'd say that I've stayed on the right track.

    I don't have goals.
    It's been a crazy, roller coaster kind of a year.

    Body-wise I've kinda stopped caring at this point. Overall the year's been a solid 8 considering the previous two years were solid zeros icon_biggrin.gif

    So much drama, lots of discouragement, but lots of growth occurring as well. Metaphorically, not physically.

    I'm feeling very good about the progress I've made this year.

    Found some direction! I really feel like I have a plan for my life now. I was a bum for two years after HS.

    Gained more financial independence.

    Dropped a shitty boyfriend.

    Made some new friends.

    Stopped smoking.

    Stopped drinking....as much.

    Started @ 280lbs and am now down to 241!

    Got a new puppy! icon_biggrin.gif
    -------------------------------------
    Next year!

    Finish up RN prereq. ;(Anat II, Pharm, and God help me College Algebra)
    New job! Applied knowledge. Experience!
    A bank account that doesn't make me cry.
    Checks that make me grin!
    New car!
    New bedroom furniture!
    Continue my new and improved lifestyle; join a damn gym. Been putting that off.

    The year when I got tired of living in the future. Time to give the little devil over my shoulder a bit more leeway and to tell the little angel on the other shoulder that I didn't forget him... I just want him to STFU for a while.

    I've definitely made most of my fitness goals for the year - i've finally gotten diet and bodyfat under control, taken nearly 15# off, without loosing any strength; figured out a lot about supplementation, dont feel like i'm wasting money anymore. Ready to tackle my goals for 2012, which is to put back on 15#, but as muscle, not fat. Whats most amazing to me is that i look bettter now at 52 than i did at 40 - or even 30. Just never thought it would be possible!

    I've made some pretty bad mistakes over the course of the year... I'm just glad I have the time to correct them before the end of the year! icon_smile.gif

    Hmmm... for me, this year's been a mixed bag:

    Positives: I changed my diet and ramped up my workouts so that I leaned out considerably, losing 25 pounds and now at 10% bodyfat, while still managing to put on a little muscle mass. Met and now exceeded dropping to my goal weight of 150#.

    Negatives: I had to deal with the drama of finally ending my relationship of 13 years. For the past four years, a midlife crisis turned him into a monster that I didn't even recognize due. Problem is.... after 13 years I don't even know how to date anymore! Actually, it seems that dating has gone outta style. Oh well, guess there are worse things to deal with!

    We'll see how the remaining few months go....

    I moved cross country. I had my feet in the Atlantic on week, and the next in the Pacific. It was actually really fun to drive with my dad.
    I too have met someone fantastic, things have been going so well. I've also been more open about my relationship to my parents; while they know I'm gay and don't approve, in years past I've always just not brought of myself to avoid tension.
    I've maintained going to the gym regularly, while I didn't have any specific weight goals, I've increased my size a little, and lost last years cupcake addict belly fat.
    Much improvement the last few years have been rough. So really proud of where I stand now.

    It's been an interesting year so far with a lot of ups and downs

    Downs:
    My dad just passed away recently
    Another relationship with so much potential that did not work out.

    Ups:
    My career is going better than ever.
    Had a fanstatic trip to Europe for the first time in my life.
    Realized how lucky I am to have such a loving family and wonderful friends who were there for me when I need them the most.
    In the process of starting an online bussiness with 2 coworkers, and it has the possibility of becomming something real big.

    The year has been a really hard one... one where I've made a lot of changes for good and bad.

    * I've finally got my body to a place where I'm actually happy with it, and proud of my progress. As a former fat kid, that's saying a lot.
    * I came out to my siblings, then my cousins, then my parents. The only man who doesn't know the truth - and I'm ashamed of this, and need to fix it - is my grandfather.
    * I learned that my career isn't what I want it to be, and that I really ought to have focused on my passions and not on what I could be doing. So now I'm struggling to find a new direction where I can put my gifts towards something I really love.

    * I fell in love for the first time, with a man I saw perfectly, and learned that it's hard to get me to that point, but once I'm there I'm going to love with everything in me.
    * I had my heart broken for the first time when that man betrayed me, and learned that there is nothing more painful than a truly selfless, genuine love.
