The 215 barrier

Today I weigh 215 pounds. This is not the first time I've achieved this weight. In fact, I think I've been lighter. But, for the most part, this is where I usually start to eat a lot of junk food and go back up to around 218. I yo-yo three to five pounds pretty consistently. However, I have gained a lot of muscle, so I'm betting my actual body fat percentage is significantly down from, oh, let's say a year ago. And it's got to be crazy far down from when I started changing my diet and exercise lifestyle just a few years ago. Overall, I'm pleased with what I've accomplished. But damn if I can't get below 215. My goal weight, right now, is 199. And I don't intend to be so muscled up I'll have that as an excuse for why I weigh more. I've got to figure out how I'm going to get past this barrier.

That is all.
