Weight:  276.0lbs Weekly Gain / (Loss):  +2.8lbs Total Gain / (Loss):  (-51.4lbs) February absolutely sucked.  I mean, it sucked enough that my wife and I have solidified the decision that we’re going to move in the next couple of years so that we can limit the number of similar Februarys we have to […]
