Of course we are never in control. Fate has a way of always having a wild card to deal, and you never can get too cocky about life. I am feeling pretty good now though. I have started on the downward trend and feeling like I can get to my goal weight before Christmas. My goal is to maintain that lifestyle until 80 then I will let loose and gain it all back, smoke again, drink and do drugs as much as I can. (had you going there)!
