My 2017 Year-End Progress Report

January 2, 2018

I look forward to this post all year! You know I share my weigh-in results and workout progress report every month. But when a new year starts, I put together a report that encompasses the whole prior year. I find it very interesting and hugely motivating, so let’s get to it!

I Love My New Stair Race Map AND My New Lego Skyscraper!

March 20, 2017

2015 Year-End Progress Report

January 5, 2016

Time for one of my favorite posts of the year! (And it’s only January 5th!) You all know that every month I share my weigh-in results and workout progress report. Well, once a year, I take a look at the bigger picture and do a Year-End Progress Report! This will be the fifth year that I’ve crunched the numbers, and I’m excited to see what they say.

First up, though, my weigh-in results from January 1st. For that, let’s turn to my trusty weight loss chart:
