Wow. Everything go alright?

So far so good........hoping to get out mid-week.  But never take a concussion for granted.  They sawed and drilled holes into my skull.  Had tubes draining out fluid.  I would post pics......but they are pretty graphic.  Just lucky to be alive.

Just stopped at Uncle Lou's in Memphis. This is going to be a rough weight trip. The wings were unbelievable, and the sauce was insane. I want to bathe in it. It's the 3rd Diners, Drive ins, and Dives place I've been too, and it's by far the best one. If you're ever around Memphis, check it out.

After a few days of many beers and bad foods I'm finally back home and shocked to see my number. 172.6 for me. Probably dehydrated. Prayers up Rico...glad they caught your injury!

I did add Rico's 15 pound weight loss, even though it was from being in the hospital.  Just glad he's doing ok!

Also, congrats to @Seeking6 for being over halfway to his goal weight!

Im taking the tortoise approach to weight loss.

Nothing wrong with that.  Small weight losses each week like you're doing are much more sustainable than losing a ton of weight each week.

I think this is going to be a bad week for me.  I went from  hardly eating at all to eating my feelings this week.

Haha.  No worries my man.  Just find that important internal reason that makes you want to lose the weight.  Mine is long term health.  I don't drink alcohol, smoke, or even drink pop.  I also stay fairly active, so diet is really the last part of long term health for me.  Some of the older members in my family are starting to have some health issues and I want to put it off as long as possible.

It won't happen overnight for you, but hang in there.  You can do it!  There's going to be bumps like you and rico are going through, but as long as you have a good internal reason for losing weight and being healthy, nothing will derail you.

I wish you the best in getting through your situation.  As the saying goes, this too will pass.
