while i smoked, maintained 245. Started vaping and shot up to 271. in 2012 when i still smoked, I used to take 2000mcg(?) chromium picolinate when i worked from home in my office and i lost about 50lb, going from 265 to 215ish, but then I gained some back so I figured the chromium wasnt helping anymore so I stopped it and apparently gained some more weight. When I started driving a truck I was around 250, and now, after reaching my lifetime high of 271, I've brought it back down slightly somehow. I started taking the chromium again but it's not helping nearly as well as it did last time and I am a bit more active this time :/ The next thing I think I am going to cut out of my life is aspartame. I drink a TON of diet pepsi, mostly fountain. I do not drink 'sugar pop' because I hate how nasty it makes my mouth within just an hour of drinking it. I am not diabetic but I do my best to stay away from a lot of sugar that I'd otherwise consume. I do have a crappy sweet tooth, it always attacks me lol. Just not sure what else to do - I know myself and my personality and i know I am not going to just exercise. I'd rather strap a bike to the back of my truck and try to ride daily before I do just exercises. It's not me.
