woah woah woah....don't assume I gave up because I stopped posting?!?!?! haha

I'm so busy these days, I'm not even on TW as much as I used to be. I just got laid off from work and I'm very busy looking for another job.

As far as my weight loss, I plateaued for 2 weeks, trying everything I could to break free from it. I eventually started dropping some pounds again after Thanksgiving. I'm currently at 29 lbs weight loss. I need to find the time to exercise more if I want to reach my goal. That's for sure.

More good news, it's been 6 months since I quit smoking, and I feel great!

Down 35lbs. It's proving to be much harder than I thought at first, which was kind of expected. The holidays took a little toll on me, I gained 2lbs that I had to lose again. Started using my Taco to get me to mt. biking spots off the grid, forcing myself to ride to get back to my truck rather than just biking around town.

I need to keep changing it up. When I get comfortable with a workout, I can see the results start to flatline a bit.

Still on track, may but I may have to push back the date a bit to get to my goal weight.

Started a new job (was unemployed for a month after being laid off) and it's taking a lot out of me. But I'm trying to do my best. The best thing that has come of it is the location of my new office being 5 minutes from back bay Newport Beach. There is a 10 mile loop I like to bike along there, and with the 8:00am traffic in the mornings, it's convenient to get up at 6:00am and bike the loop, shower and change at the 24 hour fitness next to my office, grab a protein bar and head into the office.

Still got my goal in my sights!

Great job man. 30lbs is nothing to sneeze at over a short time.
I went from 225 to 180 in 6 months, but I couldn't maintain 180 for more than a couple of weeks and ended up stabilizing at 190 for a few years.
Job and life changes (and age!) have worked against me and I'm back up over 200 again... I need to get my ass in gear and start walking/running again, especially now that my job has me tied to a desk.

And you young guys... keep an eye on your intake and activity. When I was 18-20 I was 135lbs at 6'3". My breakfast was SIX eggs, a half pound of sausage, four slices of toast, and a quart of Tang.
Lunch was something from JiTB, and dinner was either a half-pound burger on a french roll, or a large steak and russet.

When I was around 25, I was still a solid 180. Left retail, took an office job, and I was 230 within 6 months. I carried that for 15 years.

Your metabolism WILL slow down when you hit your mid 20s-30s, and your weight can easily get out of control if you don't constantly adjust your intake to your activity level.
