This morning was the final weigh-in.
Starting weight - 180.8 lbs.
Finishing weight - 166 lbs.
I feel fantastic without the extra 15 lbs., and about to enjoy some fresh squeezed OJ!! I imagine I will gain some of this back, but not all of it - the fat around my mid section is gone.
I had a revelation last night as well - Smokers are full of shit. I don't care how addicted you are to nicotine, there is nothing harder than giving up food. You might say 'I have been smoking for 20 years, and I can't quit' that is pure bullshit - I have been eating for 34 and I gave that up. It all comes down to willpower, pure and simple.
