My name is Angela. I have been working out, "goal-less"ly (not a real word, know) since high school. I've never been much good at any sports and am not very coordinated at all, but I am super-competitive (so Fitocracy was an awesome discovery for me). I have been taking various fitness classes and lifting weights on and off through the years and my body fat has bounced around accordingly.
I am one of the few lucky women that actually lost extra weight after pregnancy making my post-pregnancy weight about 30 pounds lower than my pre-pregnancy weight. Since that time, about three years ago, I have gained back about half of the pounds but thankfully most of it has been muscle since I have been concentrating on weightlifting. Unfortunately, I am also one of the unlucky women whose skin stretched out with pregnancy and so I am unlikely to ever have visible abs again no matter how hard I work, thanks to excess skin in that area.
These are my goals for 2013:
1. Decrease body fat to under 20% (currently at 20.5-21%)
2. Not be concerned with the scale because I really should know by now that it is not an accurate reflection of health
3. Learn about nutrition and apply this knowledge to my body to help me achieve goals #1-2
4. Accept the limitations of my own body, particularly things I cannot change, like loose skin
