Even with grueling kettlebell workouts I'm 30 pounds overweight. I need to be 195. I didn't see this clearly until I saw Slater Kenny, ripped of course, on HBO Real Sports. It's very clear to me now: Weighing 225 is not natural, healthy, or desirable in any way, shape or form.
Sometimes you need a vision before you can achieve your goal. After vacation, I plan on getting my daily calorie count down to 2,200 with drastic reducation in sugars and starches.
