Well, since I was the one that started this thread, I thought I would give an update on my weight-loss status (because you all want to know).
I have lost pounds and supplanted a good portion of my bad weight with good weight (fat vs. muscle). My body fat is down 5% since the beginning of the year. I have been working out regularly and trying to watch, most of the time, what I put in my body.
I have recently started to avoid eating after 8:00, with few exceptions, and I believe that this will provide even more positive results.
If I can lose another 10 pounds by the end of the year, I will be satisfied.
