I had a good week of working out. I have been on a good diet and there have been no surprises. Most of all, I still feel good.

One of the things that I was told about when undergoing a drastic weight loss would be that I could possibly be depressed or have a reverse psychology to not eating normal or plentiful amounts of food. I haven’t experienced any of those feelings, nor have I ever felt, as of yet, any low self-esteem or negative feelings about my overall being and psyche.

I did do one thing that I haven’t done in a long time that made me feel good–and normal so to speak. I went and got a haircut with my boy Mark Tarantino @hoodbarberspot in Ogden out of Moore’s Barbershop on historic 25th Street. It wasn’t so much the look of the cut but the interaction and socializing with Mark and the customers in the shop that I enjoyed.

I didn’t do that at all before, because I didn’t want to sit down in a barber chair and not fit. The fade was good, but the conversations and interactions at the barbershop were better.
