Starting weight this am - 245

Goal weight - 175

Want to do this by Thanksgiving 08.

Started the diet this morning and was going to get out and run this morning, but it snowed last night and was 9 degrees so I decided to stay in the garage and work on a trailer instead.

Alright one week in the books. Weighed in this morning at 237. I am sticking with the diet and I already feel a lot better. I am also going to start the beginning running program this evening. Hopefully with that program I can stick with it.

I weighed myself this morning.....272.3

Im big boned and very muscular :shock:

Seriously I think I started this when I was 310-315. The daily plate is kicking ass because I dont feel like Im dieting at all. Just not going over my calorie count. I set it up to only lose 2 pounds a week, and Im averaging 3-4.

:D

Zman, I am not. I found a website called thedailyplate.com. I put in my info, and chose that I wanted to lose 2 pounds a week. IT comes up with a calorie amount per day, and I do not exceed it. You can track all your foods, there database is huge! You can even add your own items. I have been eating whatever I want and I have dropped close to 40 pounds already. I had cheeseburgers, pizza, cookies. The secret is to track the calories faithfully everyday (PITA) but as long as you do not exceed, it works.

When I started this Oct 22, 2007 I could eat 2300+ calories a day. Now Im down to 2165.

Obviuosly the healthier the foods, the more you can eat, but this way I dont crave anything because I just eat it. IF you exercise You can track that too and then it adds on those calories so you can eat even more.

First time ever a "diet" has worked for me. Its just a numbers game. A calorie is a calorie is a calorie.

Thanks NJ, I've read some about 5-meal a day plans. Right now I eat two, a big lunch around 3 p.m. and dinner at 9. It's terrible, I know.

I am just trying to make more healthy choices and cut out all bread (it is my downfall). Main thing that is helping is eating less and eating dinner earlier in the evening and no late night snacks. I am trying to drink plenty of water throughout the day.
