I am getting married in April 2014 and want to lose some weight before then. I basically want to get my body fat percentage down to around the 20% mark (currently around 32%) and build some lean muscle mass.
I know I can build muscle but never seem to stick at it long enough, or a holiday etc comes along and ruins my plans. I want to make life changes rather than just starting and stopping all the time.

Well I have been managing to stick to a calorie defecit so far, not always what I aimed for (around 1400 calories per day) but always under my normal maintainance level.
I have not managed the gym 2/3 times per week as my muscles wouldnt let me. First week my arms were hurting so much I couldnt straighten them, and then my back was sore after deadlifts.
I will soon be back into the swing of it as planning on going again this weekend as nearly 100% again. Just shows how quickly your body forgets about weight training.

First weigh in today since I started... Lost 2lbs :) Body fat is down from 31.8 to 30.3, so close to my first target. Feeling quite motivated and keen to keep losing the weight now.
