Almost there

Weighed in this morning, and I've finally passed the 170 barrier . I swear I was at 170-173 for two weeks! Only 5 or so more to go.

I know what you mean about college. I went from about 180 (end of high school) to about 230 (graduation of college). Basically, eating fast food for breakfast lunch and dinner while getting minimal exercise is an easy formula for weight gain.

I don't eat out anymore, at least when I can help it. (Specifically, when I'm out with family members and they just have to have Wendy's, or similar..) I don't drink pop (or soda) anymore, I don't snack on things like chips, candy bars, yada yada yada..

I've found a way to cook healthier food that actually does taste great. I eat a lot of fish, veggies, and everything your mother told you to eat as a child. Also, when I don't bike, I try to walk or run for an hour a day. It's on the treadmill, which I loathe, but it helps with the cardio, making the biking much better.

I should consider myself lucky though, the weight has been coming off steadily without any plateaus of serious length. I use myfitnesspal on my phone to keep track of my exercises and *everything* I ingest. I've been following it (calorie wise, there isn't much you can do about the carbs, sugars, sodium, ect.. if you exercise a lot, I suppose it thinks you are only constricting calories and not using anything taken in during the day.) Weight can come off easy if you follow a good plan, and stick to it. All it takes is time.
