A Moment on the Lips is a Lifetime on the Hips

Not sure if anyone actually follows this (besides Alexis...Hi Alexis!) but if so you may be aware that in addition to becoming a good vegetarian and master yogi I'm also trying to lose 60 lbs. I started saying I was trying to lose weight months ago but around the 1st of November I joined a gym and have seriously been on a mission. So far I've lost 8 pounds and 2.3% body fat but since I Used to be Skinny I'm really not sure what constitutes as good weight loss. I'm also much too afraid to get my measurements done for some strange and vain reason so I don't exactly have a reference point other than poundage. One day I did actually manage to face my fears and I used the scale at the gym to measure my weight, body fat percentage and BMI. It was a really, really sad day. But it has given me a frame of reference so hopefully I'll stay on the right track. Just for reference for your sake, I'll put a picture of when I was young and cute and...well...what I look like now.
