187 Frown this morning. Will weigh again next Monday.


reff...don't even think of doing the weight loss challenge with tbird. That dude is the king of the yo yo diet. He'll go on a bender for a week and drop 20. Eek


I know, I am up against a monster!!!!
Update: I am down 5 pounds since starting this thread, however, that was easy to lose. The real work will now begin.

My biggest challenge will be to eliminate any late-night (while watching movies) snacks, which lead to drinks, which lead to other snacks. You get the point. Big Grin

It is fun for a little while, especially when the number is decreasing, but then something happens....

I feel your pain, it took me a year to change ever since I saw the Michelin Man appearing on my waistline. In the end, sleeping earlier helped the most, because I am less hungry in my sleep than awake.

The transition slowly went from Steak/Meat -> instant noodles/pasta -> granola bars/ cereal-> Nothing

Don't forget: If you're at the gym lifting weights, while burning calories on the treadmill etc, you'll be adding back in some heavier muscle mass to replace some of the fat. Thus you may be losing more fat weight than shows.

Just throwing a little excuse out there for ya' napaccoast.

hmmm..tbird not drinking all week, but he is tonight, will see what happens my offical weigh in is Monday.
Around August last year, I decided I needed to lose weight. Dropped about 30 pounds by 12/31. Plan to drop another 30 this year. My diet includes foie gras, wine, cheese, charcuterie. The only thing off limits are concentrated sweets and simple carbs.

It's really that simple.
Simple plan for me more cardio, more reps and lighter weights lifting, and cut down on snacks (hard when you work at home). I already work out 4 days a week, but most is lifting with a bit of cardio. I weighed in at 201 on Friday and am already down to 195 by just cutting out snacking and focusing my workouts differently. Not much different in my overall diet since I already ate fairly well. We'll see were it takes me.

I'd have to give up wines, eating out, and no more martinis, & especially no more Bookers Bourbon.

Like I said, this is a very depressing thread!


Latour- I couldn't disagree with you more. I am a bourbon guy, with 13 different bourbons in my cabinet, and have one almost every night. I like to have one, and then a glass of wine with some cheese, grapes and cashews/almonds/pistachios. That is my go to meal for "dinner" and has helped me cut out the large dinner meal that so plagued me. And, Bookers is my favorite, go to bourbon and you definitely do not have to give that up. So don't disparage there!
Also, here is what appears to be a polarizing question/concept for the dieting world. Do you weigh yourself everyday or once a week or __x week/month?

I am firmly in the camp of everyday. I have a large "desk" calendar tacked to my bathroom wall over the scale and get on every morning first thing and write down that day's tally in bright blue permanant marker. That way I see the monthly trend (good or bad) and know that if I want to splurge, that I will see the bad result the next day. That way if I wake up very hungry, I see a (hopefully) positive result that morning that incentivizes me to be strong for another day. And on the flip side, if I see a +++ day, that gets me going as I don't want to see multiple +++ days in a row!!!

My issue (among many others) in the past was that I would not get on the scale every day and that could/would allow you to get so far gone that I would lose momentum (or get it going in the wrong direction) and would feel out of control. Control is everything. I have good days and bad days. I have good weeks and bad weeks. But, for the last 13 months, I am trending down and am 121 pounds down over that period of time and still take clients out for steak dinners. I still eat well, just much, much, much less of it and if i know that I have a "big night" planned, I skimp for a day or two so that I don't blow my goals.

I am in way shape or form a diet guy, but I have found what is working for me and so am doing it.

Does that interfere with your naked yoga routine? Razz

Not at all, I'm very bendy.

And a great sport.
