Don't put that in your mouth unless you want to weigh 198 pounds again!

Holy shit, has it really been 6 months since my last update? Time flies when you're having fun, eh? Well, 6 months later and I'm still down from my "starting" weight of 198, however, I have let a few pounds creep back on. As of this morning I'm at 176 pounds which is still 22 lighter than a year ago, so that's something.

It's not enough of something, however. I am disappointed in myself and my complete lack of willpower. Granted, I think 5 or so of these creepy pounds came back a month ago in Vegas where I ate anything and everything, and I enjoyed my share of libations 'round the clock. Hey, it was my 10-year anniversary and I was in Vegas for heaven's sake. That aside, I'm not going to shed any more pounds unless I become a hell of a lot more proactive about it. So, I'm starting again. :) Let's see what I can accomplish when I actually have to do more than just pop a pill.

No, I haven't given up on drugs. ;) I'm off the Adipex and am now going to try something else. But this time I'm going to combine pharmaceutical assistance with exercise. And I have to get back to portion control and paying attention to what I put in my mouth. I also need to hold myself accountable--so watch for a flurry of "Don't put that in your mouth!" activity.

Here I am not quite a month ago. Not too bad, if I do say so myself. Just think of how hot I'll be 30 pounds from now!

Here's to attempting the first 10 pounds!

176 today,
