Thanks! Like Conne, all my life I was skinny. I was actually skinny and pretty muscular from participating in cross country, tennis, soccer, and basketball in High School. My senior year and freshman/soph year of college I gained weight like crazy. It was easy to think that having pizza every couple nights wouldn't really affect me b/c I was in good shape. Well you stop exercising for two hours a day and surprise surprise, it comes on pretty quickly! So over the last 9 months or so I've just been getting back into exercising between running and biking, indoor soccer, and pickup basketball. I've never been able to get into weight lifting, but I'd like to start.
The weight loss has slowed since February, when I started drinking, but I've cut down on the multiple drink nights and am mainly down to one drink with dinner, so it's starting to come along again.
FWIW, Mike, I remember going from skinny to where you are at to where I was at my heaviest. You really need to get control of it now, b/c it just gets harder and harder with more time and more weight. Take care of yourself man.
