After 9 days of almost constant eating, I know that I gained a bit of weight. Filipino funerals are a terror on your digestive system.

Well, I have only had one beer this week, probably because it was a really easy week at work. I modified the "keep the beer in the cabinet" idea to keeping only one beer in the fridge. One of my friends wants to start going to the track a couple nights a week, and I haven't gotten to hang out with her in quite some time, so that should be pretty fun.

Actually sort of looking forward to my weigh-in on Sunday.

162.5, movin' right along.

Though I think being sick is at least partially responsible.

My biggest challenge is keeping fit and not gaining weight while traveling. Eating out often and being jet lagged and over tired does not help.

The second dietary change I made was reducing added salt. It's like people say about quitting smoking - after you get over the hump, food tastes so much better


The really good news is that the better tasting food doesn't make you want to have a pile of salt afterward that much more, either.

I guess eating a two-pound bag of salted pistachios isn't a good idea.

Had a pretty big set back when I weighed in last Tuesday. I only lost .8 from the previous week number. That was a big bummer since I thought I had made slight positive adjustments from the previous week in the hopes of losing more than the 10 previously lost. I did miss working out three days though that week, and the fact that I continue to shrink down leads me to believe that I was still gaining muscle, just not dropping as much fat.

Weighed in this morning at 434.2 so down another 7 pounds since last Tuesday. This brings the total to 17 since I started tracking my weight on 08/13/2012.

Well, I proved that I could lose almost 10 lbs in a week. Bottomed out around 198 on my home scale two weeks ago... and since then I totally regressed. My schedule is crazy mixed up for the next week, what with getting a new job and quitting my current one. I'm back at 204 now, so that's no good. Don't see me correcting that this week; I'm off to MA tomorrow through Monday, as a friend is getting married. Expecting a lot of eating... doh! Also some beach time, though (assuming it's still warm enough; we're still hitting the 90s here in FL, but MA can get down into the 60s in September).

I don't have a scale and that's fine by me. I just want my clothes to be looser.

Been trying to pay a bit more attention to what I'm eating and I've started walking more. I figure with just these small adjustments, I should start noticing a difference soon. And once I'm a bit more in shape, I'll go get me some weights. I used to love strength training. Good for your bones.

The long weekend wasn't good for my eating habits, either. Haven't gotten on a scale yet, but I suspect I'm up around 167-ish right now. Time to buckle down.

I had an appointment with an endocrinologist last week. I get multiple tests tomorrow and next week to see what's up. They're thinking it could be hypothyroidism or PCOS. Either way, I'm excited to get an answer on why I can't lose weight.

By the way, for anyone on the fence about exercise, do it. I used to hate exercising when I was a smoker, even when I was my fittest around 230lbs. Now that I've been clean for a year, I am absolutely loving cardio exercise. It's a hassle biking forty minutes every day, but if you can clear a bit from your schedule at least a few times a week, it makes such a huge difference in how you feel. I'm not going to turn all Richard Simmonsy on you, but yeah, it's kind of like that. I get off the bike after my forty minutes and within a half hour, I want to get back on and have another go.

Not to mention the fact that it's done wonders for my demeanor. Sure I've always been a sarcastic, bitter fuckwad, but now I can be so with a ridiculous grin on my face. All that shit they say about diet and exercise is true. Just wish I'd listened sooner.

Also, I plan to get to a manageable weight in the next two years where I can bike across the US (coast-to-coast) if any of you douchebags want to let former, almost felon crash on your couch. Smiley: tongue

I don't think it was quite as bad as I had suspected. Didn't get to weigh myself before my workout, but afterwards I weighed in at 162.8. It was a crazy workout*, so I'm guessing that I was probably walking around at 165.5-ish beforehand.

*Seriously crazy:

50 burpees
50 v sits
50 jumping pullups
50 russian twists
50 power overs
50 split lunges
50 dumbell curls
50 dumbell push presses
50 lateral jumps
50 trx rows
50 dumbell swing switches

...then 1.5 hours of no-gi. Argh.

Labor day weekend was not good to me. I was down at the start of it, but imagine I've jumped up 2 pounds in the last couple days. It didn't help that my welcoming neighbors brought me pies as a house warming gift.

Mmmmm pie....

Have you been using any other tools besides a scale to track results? I'm in a similar position of wanting to gain muscle mass, but I find myself unsure of how much progress I'm making. Did the scale go up because I'm suceeding or did it go up because I'm failing?

Also mind sharing you workout regime? Which groups are you going for?

My other metric is pant size; most of my 32" khakis don't fit anymore. And my exercise regime consists of playing with a four-year-old and a seven-month-old.

213 lbs, 5'6" and my scales tell me I'm at 42.2% body fat (bought body fat monitoring scales because I want to be able to tell if I'm not losing weight or if I'm building muscle). I'm planning to ease myself gently back into proper dieting as I think part of my problem is I get frustrated with weighing and monitoring everything I eat, so I'm more likely to give up altogether. I've increased my exercise greatly over the last couple of years, so on that front it's more about making sure I've got a good range going on as much as about increasing the amount that I do.

I'm currently waiting on some test results from the doctor and if they come back positive, the treatment will hopefully mean I have more energy, which would be great.

I'm also waiting on the latest class timetable to come out before I get a new gym membership, so that's potentially another couple of weeks before I'll be able to go to the gym or work out what classes I'll do each week.

By next week I will get my bike fixed, and start going out for at least one cycle a week. I'm going to keep a food diary (was doing well at this until I went on holiday), to start with just writing down what I eat and when, but at this point not being specific about amounts or working out calories. I'm only going to eat sweet things if they are free or I make them at home (I seem to be better at rationing stuff I make myself than stuff I buy) and I'm going to find something better to drink than pints of cider at my weekly social (usually the only day I drink each week).

Down about twenty pounds over the last month. This is great, but not good enough. I cannot be satisfied because for two week, I lost under a pound (for reference over the last four weeks: 12, .5, 7, .7). Last night I worked out harder than I think I might have ever worked out in my life. I pushed myself because I have allowed myself to plateau. Thinking that the same effort was good enough to continue. Especially when one of the weeks I missed biking for three days total, this last week I missed two days. I worked out my usual forty minutes yesterday and today, but I made sure to push well past my wall and it felt freaking great. I feel more secure incorporating a medium-high paced HIIT (5-8 20 second fast pedaling intervals followed by 10 seconds of slower) into the middle of my workout in the hopes of further upping my metabolism.

I face an uphill battle over the next few weeks. I'm going to the Packer/Bears game later tonight and we'll be tailgating. Next Friday, I'm going to see Typical Cats in Chicago and plan on getting a combo beef and a gyro as well (might stop into Phillies Best as well for a philly on garlic with their hamazing cheese fries). The following week, we're going to a decadent restaurant to throw my mother a surprise 60th birthday party.
