200 last night, after chopping up a 1000 lbs of cactus. Now it's time to "stop trying" and just eat carbs from time to time. I'm not going to stop eating protein, local & natural foods, and avoid food stuffs whenever possible, though I did have some Peeps that we picked up at Target on 75% post-Easter discount while our Fence Post cactus was busy falling down in our absence - I bought the Peeps, Dr.Desert Flower doesn't like them. I washed them down with 3 bottles of beer - mmmm.
I used to have a 50" chest, and that's slimmed down to 46", while waist went from +40 to 35... but 34 pants fit me again for the first time in 23 years. Bike riding has thighs up to 23 inches now, so I want to moderate that and avoid an Eric Heiden (27") look. It only took me 8 and a 1/2 months to drop 20% of my body mass by ceasing to eat grains, cereals, and so called "low fat" foods. Thanks to my friends Ron, Zim, Matt,and Mike S for setting good examples for me to follow!
