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.

I have recently decide to drop a few a lot of pounds and at least get to the half way point between when I was in the army working out 5 hours a day and the Santa Claus looking fool I am now.

I started a program called from the couch to a 5K. I like it so far.

J-

My first impression of you was the quiet, reserved person sitting at the table in the hotel room. My last impression of you was the guy on the bus during the return trip from Otis's place. Eek I wonder what the next impression will be.

I look forward to sharing wine again.

Yeah, the wheels fell of the bus that night. I guess drinking wine for 10 straight hours will do that to a person. Big Grin Although, I must admit, that is a little closer to what I am really like. I guess you could say I have a little TBird in me. Big Grin

Hopefully we can share a glass before the next CDP!

I preferred the "guy on the bus." Between you, Dannyk, and Paulk, it was a very interesting ride back to the hotel. Big Grin

I to am 6'-4" and it is not working regardless of what angle I position myself in front of the mirror.

+5lbs on the year, duh.

2011 Weight Loss = 1978-2009 20lbs + 2010 5lbs + 5lbs (Christmas)

30lbs. Eek

Gigabit, I don't think of liquids as food but not really prepared to argue about it, so let's say beer and wine are food I consider them to be like kefir, saurkraut and pickles, partially predigested. I know alcohol is not supposed to do you any favors but I can still lose weight while I am drinking. Which is more than I can say for junk food even at 2000 calories a day.

KSC02, the bread man is irrational and dangerous.
Well, been about a year now since I started my diet. 6', 260# was the start. I'm still 6' (yea!) but 205# now. The only real modifications remain the removal of 95% of simple carbs. I eat a lot of salads for lunch, have veggies and no starch for dinner. I still eat all the foie gras, cheeses, etc. that I want. I split a bottle of wine nightly with my wife (3 glass me, 2 for her).

All my blood labs, my blood pressure are now great. My resting pulse is back into the 40s like it used to be when I cycled and lifted weights a lot (still not getting the same level of exercise I did in my 20s, but apparently getting enough).

Congrats to other folks that have shed some pounds.

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.


I think it is practically impossible to have noticeable muscle growth while in a caloric deficit.

I didn't check back until now. I'm fine, Joe. Thanks for asking.

I had a punctured diverticulum (pouch in the intestine). It resulted in peritonitis. Nasty nasty stuff. I had a great Italian surgeon who ordered me to drink a glass of wine a day when I was discharged! Big Grin
New relevant news

Medical treatment to raise HDL is not successful at lowering CV events.

Still 5 years later
-Lowering LDL and keeping "fluffy" components higher than "solid" is the best treatment...and the best medical regimen involves low dose statins.
-Elevated HDL is protective but best achieved by routine highly aerobic exercise and a low calorie Mediterranean [not low carb or low protein ]diet
-Drinking more liquids and eating slowly reduces the hunger mechanism and keeps you from overeating.
-Everything your mom told you is in fact true
-No dessert before dinner
-Eat your vegetables
-Take human [small] bites
-Don't talk with your mouth full
-Calories in - calories out = weight gain
-Fad or restricted diets don't work at maintenance; 40/30/30 rule still applies
-Don't eat when stressed or bored
-Sedentary work means increasing metabolism early in the morning or evening, something our parents didn't worry about
-You are in charge of your own health...don't blame others or the health care system.
