           just got back from the gym after an hour long basketball game. im tired, but i feel good because before i left, i weighed myself thinking i maybe lost a lb, and come to see i lost another 8 lbs. im down to 313. i had a goal of under 300 by july, but i bet i could be below 290 or even 285 by july if i keep it up. i have cut out all the crap, no more fast food, no more low carb ice cream, only thing i had was some sugar free red vines the other day for a treat. i did have nachos from a mexican restaurant by my house, but me and my fiance had gone on a hour and a  1/2 long bike ride before that, so i felt i earned it. my blood pressure last night was 120/80. everything is good, and i am even getting calls back from resumes i have sent out for jobs so i can get off of my shi__y graveyard shift job at walgreens. i don't knopw if i posted this in the right forum, but i have gotten response from people in here the most.

Keep up the good work, man. It sounds like you're really doin good things for your body. I'm real happy for ya about the calls from your resume. I hope you can find a job where you're happy and productive.

I think I may have just found the right job for me: retirement. :) At least the last few days have been pretty good ones. It's nice not to have a buncha stress.

Anyway, keep it up and good things will follow.

i sure could use retirement. i do have 4 days off coming up, where i will use part of the days looking for jobs, and the rest just resting and doing stuff around the house. mostly though im gonna play alot of basketball and alot of bike riding. just need to get away from some things, and do what i want to do instead of always worrying about work.

Just remember it didnot come on over night so your weight willnot go off overnight.
