I'm coming back, in more ways than one!

So, I'm coming back to let you guys know that I made it all the way down to 230lbs, and bounced back up to 250lbs.

The reality hit me that just because I had surgery 2 years ago, doesn't mean that I can't be fat again. Calories still add up. Whether you graze throughout the day or have just a couple of big meals, the amount of daily calories is the same.

So, sure, I can eat less in one sitting, but if I get a full meal, and eat it over the course of 3 hours, it's the same difference. This is something that I failing to realize until I started logging my calories. That red bull that I was drinking in the morning was 320 calories. I switched to Kickstart (because I'm not letting go of my caffeine) That saved me 240 calories. I also switched from sausage egg and cheese croissants to a powerbar. I have lost 5 lbs in about two weeks.

I bought a fitbit charge hr, and it is really helping me to stay active and aware of daily actions. My goal is to get down to 215 lbs, and I'll be doing it the old fashioned way.

So I will post here with updates.
