As I’ve said in previous posts (here and here), I started out the year with goal to lose 15 lbs. and I lost 12. My next goal was to get down to 145 lbs., I got down to 148. I was shedding pounds and seeing results. However, I had a change in mindset thanks in part to my boyfriend and a really fit female acquaintance. I adopted a new outlook of gaining strength not losing pounds. Let me be clear! I still want to get down to 145 lbs. or less, but it is no longer my focus for working out. There is a difference!
