After Thanksgiving week my wife and I got back home and I realized I need to get a hold of myself. No drinking during the week (which means no socializing which isn't great for depression management), eating minimal calories, and working out every day.
The first week into this project was touch and go, but I'm glad to report that this week has gone fairly well. I've haven't touch booze all week, eaten the most minimal diet and worked out hard everyday. As of this morning I'm 199 lbs!
I'm also feeling very pressed to lean down for another reason. My wife and I are headed to the Rose City in a couple of weeks and I'm terrified of the weight gain. The last time I was there I gained 10 pounds in two weeks.
