In light of recent posts regarding weight training, and becoming less dependant on the scale (while you can be damn sure I will celebrate every scale victory), I have decided to change my banner to reflect that.
My previous banner said "My journey to losing 167lbs". The truth of the matter is I have NO IDEA what my happy weight will end up being. I may lose 167lbs, but I may end up 5-20lbs heavier, but leaner with muscle. See I based my previous goal weight to be 4lbs lighter than I was at my lightest, because when I was there I still had room for improvement.
However, I got to that weight without ANY strength training, and in the last year my only real form of consistent exercise was walking. With the fitness goals I have now, I realistically expect to have a lot more muscle on my body, making that goal weight possibly un-attainable. I don't want to feel like I failed at the end because I didn't hit that weight. SO, my new tag-line is "A journey to my goal body" because I feel that represents my intents a little more accurately.
