Was down to 167 today, which is awesome. I've learned that if I have more than one beer I just can't control my drinking or eating to an acceptable level and I just have to accept that as a reality for now instead of thinking I can handle it. So I'm going to try to limit drinking to once a week, maybe less, and stick to diet/workout hardcore outside of that.
7 more lbs to lose until I hit my original goal but I'll probably have another 10 lbs to go before I'm at where I really want to be. Maybe more. Shitty but this time I've got it.
Doing PHAT so lifting 5x/wk, and then trying to stay active outside of that. Lowering cals to 1800 helped a lot, with 150g daily protein goal.
I need to hit RHET up more often for motivation.
