The big thing with me lately: I quit smoking 10 months ago and quit drinking over 7 months ago. I had gotten up to 250 pounds, was hungover most of the time, and was having some pretty bad heart problems. Surprisingly, of the two, the drinking was the hardest to quit. Everyone who has quit these habits talks about how much better they felt after getting all of that out of their system. I felt like total ass for the first 6 months. Worse than I ever felt before. After 6 months though, something clicked. Now, I lift weights everyday, run on the treadmill, and regularly throw haymakers at my punching bag. I'm not necessarily trying to get in shape, I just have a lot of energy now that I have to get out. I'm down to about 223 and am starting to vaguely resemble the human form again. And my heart problems have almost completely disappeared.

Other events:

Got a good job at UA.
Bought a House.
Got Married.
Got a kick ass dog. His name is Wilson.
Maggie is still alive and well if you (idk who "you" is supposed to be) were wondering.

Nice update. I'm sorry you were having heart issues, but I'm so glad that you're taking care of yourself. It still freaks me out now that I'm an adult that "taking care of myself" is something I have to do actively. When I was younger that wasn't so much of an issue.

The over 30 metabolism is the worst part. I used to live on beer, Dr. Pepper, and fast food and I would hover at about 170 pounds which is pretty skinny for a 6'4 guy. I looked like a giant boobless woman. I'm glad that I'm a little more "man-shaped" now, but this gut and moobs have got to go.
