I have been battling the bulge most of my adult life. I come from a big family, most of us anyway. So recently thanks to some aching knees, an aching back, and my inability to keep up with my wife and 7 year old daughter, I decided to get serious about loosing some pounds. Lunch is no more, for the most part during the week I have cut out lunch and replaced it with a protein drink. this morning, for the first time in a long time our bathroom scale can tell me my weight. this is not a huge amount lost, I have been just north of 300lbs for a long time. But it is a start, a good start. Here’s hoping it keeps going south, I’d be happy with 225.
