Just an update... I'm still around, and I have not regained any substantial amount of weight. Many bloggers also stop posting when things in life get tough or busy, and that's happened to me.
Health issues related to my kidneys, and a few other issues have plagued me since my last post. Add in dealing with depression. Life has been rough, but I'm getting through it with professional help and support from loved ones. Still quietly reading blogs from time to time, and it's really nice to see a lot of bloggers making progress. I'm still swinging back and forth in the 160 to 170 lbs range, and today I'm at 165.5 lbs.
Here's to blue skies ahead, rather than dark clouds.
