Also, Smiley: lol at my first post in this thread. I was stupidly optimistic. I think if I push hard and maintain, maybe I can push down to 380 by Thanksgiving if I keep it up. That would be losing an additional twenty pounds the next two months each. I hope to lose more than that, but I have been tempering my expectations.

I've somehow gained like 15 pounds in the past two months--from 205 to 220, 5'10". So I'm making a solid effort to return to my old eating habits (I never used to snack, I ate smaller portions at meals, I ate breakfast, meals generally didn't have too many empty calories in them, etc.)

Part of the issue is living home again. My parents have very different eating philosophies than me. They fill the plate and eat way more fattening food than I'm in the habit of doing. I usually used smaller plates or bowls, specifically so I wouldn't over-fill.

I also ate a fraction of the meat I eat here. More fruit, less pasta, etc.

Worst of all, every locale I frequent nowadays is too far to walk to, so I went from walking everywhere to driving everywhere. Doesn't help.

I've found the needy infant method effective. Frequently he screams unless I carry him and walk around. Down to 225!

Babies are great. They're like a weight set that gradually gets heavier. And then...they start to walk! And run!

I was doing really well, but my recent travel schedule has thrown it all out of whack. I need to start renting bikes when I'm out of town instead of cars or something.

I'm at a mid 160's plateau. Fiancee is out, so I have to come home after work to take the dog out instead of training.

I'm starting to play squash again, and I'm planning on including it as a part of a slightly longer work out. The fact that I love playing squash will help to motivate me to get to the gym.

Well my relatives finally left the house after 2 weeks of visiting. My diet was mediocre at best while they were down but I did manage to do quite a bit of walking (plus a bit of beach fun on Monday). After reading this thread I decided to go weigh myself and I am at 185 now. I would have been closer to 180 if I didn't resort to all that crap I ate for the past two weeks. Smiley: tongue

213 lbs, 42.2% body fat

212 lbs, 43.1% body fat and my hydration levels are getting worse.

Blood test was clear (good because I don't' have anything wrong, but bad because I'm still not sure why I don't have any energy), I'm on some supplements for a vitamin deficiency, so I guess I'll see if that makes any difference. I'm also going to make a chart so that I make sure I'm getting the right foods in me each week.

No timetable yet, so I'm still slacking on the gym front. I was actually disappointed when I realised I wouldn't be able to go today, I could theoretically do some other form of exercise, but I'm not that motivated :P

By next week I will get my bike fixed, and start going out for at least one cycle a week

This is in progress. Had to buy a new gear wire and haven't got around to fitting it yet. If I can't get it working this weekend I'll take it into a shop on Monday.

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

Check, managed everything apart from the pub night, where keeping track of times is not going to happen and I might have left a drink off. I think I need to note stuff down as I go along. Next step for the diary is to add in portion sizes.

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).

I had a rum and coke (I think the mixer was either diet coke or pepsi, didn't taste like normal coke), surprisingly I enjoyed it (I tend to go for very sweet drinks) but I drank it way too fast, as evidenced by the shocked look on my friends faces. I don't eat dinner on social night, so I think when I get around to calorie counting I'll just have to work out how many drinks I can have with what's left of the days allowance and have a bit more awareness of which brands are better options calorie wise.

A while back, I tracked my calories for about a month straight. What I found was that my meal intake was actually fairly low at around 12:00. The 3-4 sodas a day I was drinking were nearly 500 alone, and if I went out to the local watering hole, it wasn't unusual for me to put back 12x 110 calories and maybe a 4-6x 80-100 calories (shots). I realized then, that I was more than doubling my caloric intake any time I went out. Major bummer.

Mmmm I might consider getting into this. I don't know what I weigh, and frankly don't care, but I'd like to be in better shape. I could probably stand to drink a lot less beer, and I honestly think that I'd lose a fair amount of flab with that change alone. In terms of athleticism, even though I am a heavier person I ride my bike like a boss, everywhere, so that does help me feel more fit... though that said, I could do a lot better.

Anyway, thanks for the inspiration everyone.

I started eating more healthy lunches (chicken salad, hard boiled eggs, whatever the deli across the street has for the day) and drinking a lot more powerade 0cal instead of soda, but I resigned that I would not be cutting any sufficient calories from alcohol, so no change there.

I think that's a big problem for me, too. I've got a high alcohol tolerance, so it's not unusual for me to be 4 beers deep without even the slightest hint of a buzz coming on. I just burned through a big case of Guinness in a week, and I shudder to think how many calories that amounted to.

Think I'm gonna try to go without drinking at home for the next couple months. I'm good about limiting myself to just a couple drinks when I go out (since I usually drive), so I should be okay sticking to that.

Interestingly, the sugar content in many alcohol beverages makes it so that they have the same energy density regardless of actual alcohol content. Try mixing up your mixed drinks with higher alcohol percentages and diet mixers. Like a shot of Bacardi 151 in a diet coke, instead of a classic rum and coke, or a cosmo made with no sugar added cranberry juice. You'll get drunk faster AND consume less total calories.

Hahaha, if you really want to you'll find a way. The milk trick will help with the beer/spirit & coke/wine crowd though, assuming you typically drink more calories than the milk gives you of course. If you drink liqueurs (Bailey's) you're done for.

I just make my late snack a small bowl of cereal, works for me. Can't drink because the milk will make me sick and I'm just too **** lazy to make a different snack. It's all about making the bad things unattractive :).

Accept the fact that if getting drunk means more to you than shedding the unhealthy shroud of fat covering your body, you probably have larger problems than just the fat.

Captain Peanut Butter Crunch with a big handful of blackberries on it, tastes just like a PB&J sandwich.
