Weight Loss Update, 2019 starting weight 192, Body Fat 25.1% Today: 174.2 Body Fat 21%
This week I started drinking alcohol again after about 2 months of not drinking. I made myself a promise, if I hit 175 pounds then I would re-introduce alcohol. I will say that I need to make sure I eat before I drink because this week I didn’t get a blue dot because I ate pizza and drank to much beer / wine. I will get better, I just need to make sure I eat healthy before I drink and make sure I am drinking plenty of water.
