So while having a respiratory infection might've helped me break the barrier of 200lbs (because I barely couldn't eat anything for a week or so), staying under 200 has not been a fluke.
This morning I weighed in at 198 -- I've been fluctuating between 197 and 199 for a week now. So I feel I can safely say adios to the 200s.
Man... where's my parade?
Oh that's right... I've still got work to do.
