Fat Fighter

Fighting fat one calorie at a time!



Tales from the scale

I’m currently 218 lbs, which is the lowest that I’ve been since at least January of this year.

I have faith that the fat will reduce;  I’m doing all the right things (most of the time). But in the end, you can’t out-train a bad diet. I think a few tweaks to my diet and drink more water and I’ll be doing really well. Continue reading “Tales from the scale”
