I'm not really sure how many people actually read this, but I figured I would post it anyway.
So 2016, like for most people, I've been complete shit for me. In March this year I dealt with my father passing away. Soon after, I had to move back in with my mother to help take care of her. My father passed away due to his addiction to alcohol. It was a pretty long battle. Seeing my mom constantly in tears, knowing that her husband was on a self-destructive path that would not end well for anybody.
After my father passed away, I started my attempt at getting help for my mother for her alcohol addiction. Luckily she has made quite a bit of progress, but have a few slipups here and there.
On the brighter side of 2016, I finally achieved my goal weight after two years of work. Back in 2014, I was pushing close to 340 lbs, and gaining more everyday. Almost on the two-year anniversary of when I first started trying to lose weight I am now at 225lbs.
My next goal will be to attempt to quit smoking. I know this wind up being the most difficult challenge for me. I have attempted to quit smoking many times before, but circumstances and lack of willpower have bitten me in the ass a few times.
I didn't mean for this post to sound like a New Year's resolution, I just wanted to share my memories of 2016 and my hopes for 2017.
