The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly...

The Good....Weighed in yesterday. down .8 lbs...that put me at 248....down 22 lbs and my very lowest weight in many years. Still shooting for 238, which would equal two 16 lb bowling balls.

The Bad..I pigged out after that good weigh-in. Even though none of the things that I ate seemed like too much at the time.....they were FAR more than I have been eating in any one day. Also, much of the junk came from fast food restaurants....

Let's see....a bowl of cereal; a quick stop on way to the lake for two breakfast burritos three hours later.

Then, around three p.m. a triple snacker from "BK on the way home; at home ..a steak..two beers; a wine...some chips and salsa......

Yee Gods.....yes....it does sound AWFUL. Too much and too many!

The Ugly...back up 2.5 lbs due to that one day of debauchery.

Starting over with a goal of losing SOMETHING by next week's weigh in...

Bah humbug...Rich

Come on Jim....you can do it. I've been doing pretty good, but the lbs just don't fall that quickly. I am moving in the right direction...but VERY slowly. #-o

Like you said....refocus.

3/15/11 @ 236.5 - I am starting to think towards my next (5 lb increment) goal of 230... but trying not to get ahead of myself and still focusing on 235...

Excerpt....
Dr. Levine then began to ply them with an extra 1,000 calories per day.

Sure enough, some of his subjects packed on the pounds, while others gained little to no weight.

“We measured everything, thinking we were going to find some magic metabolic factor that would explain why some people didn’t gain weight,” explains Dr. Michael Jensen, a Mayo Clinic researcher who collaborated with Dr. Levine on the studies. But that wasn’t the case. Then six years later, with the help of the motion-tracking underwear, they discovered the answer. “The people who didn’t gain weight were unconsciously moving around more,” Dr. Jensen says. They hadn’t started exercising more — that was prohibited by the study. Their bodies simply responded naturally by making more little movements than they had before the overfeeding began, like taking the stairs, trotting down the hall to the office water cooler, bustling about with chores at home or simply fidgeting. On average, the subjects who gained weight sat two hours more per day than those who hadn’t.

I don't know enough about losing weight. I do know a little bit about setting and attaining goals. You might consider choosing something that really, really like to do.

Let's say ......go golfing with your buddy on Saturday. So.....you say to yourself..."I really like to go golfing with Fred ( or whoever) every Saturday morning". "If I don't lose at least one pound by the weigh-in on Friday...I don't go golfing".

You will lose the weight if you set the goal at an attainable level.

You can substitute any activity ( some activities I can't mention on this site.... Ha ha ) for the preferred goal. regards, Rich

Well I think i have found a new diet it seem to work very well:
2 years ago I dropped 35 lbs in 3 months it never came back
and now the last 2 weeks I have dropped another 15lbs
I am under 290 for the first time in 5 years :)
I will call it the back spasm diet.. i hurt my back 2 weeks ago and have been out of work
I have been flat on my back most of the time.
I do try to sit up while eating but after about 15 mins the pain get too intense
so I lay back down and stop eating.
I am sure I will get better sooner or later, so I need to figure out how to keep it going
How about a cattle prod? zap myself until i but the fork down?

That's a tough way to lose weight. Hope you feel better soon!

Ouch! Congratulations on your new found diet plan .... Ouch! Again...

You ARE proving the article that was posted last week that said dieting is the answer...not exercise. Maybe you should write a book and make millions???

Ouch...UP ...+1.6 lbs this week to 249.6 lbs.

Last week I weighed in at my very lowest since I started this journey Dec 2010. However, my wife returned from a trip and is cooking again. I was only eating one big meal a day when she was gone. Too lazy to cook for myself!

Went to a WW meeting today. BIG emphasis on tracking points ( or calories). Study showed that people who tracked their points daily lost twice as much as those who did not.

I am back tracking again! I find that using the phone app MyFitnessPal is easy and has a lot of the foods I eat all stored in the program. I don't have to look anything up on my own. The program does most of the work.

Below is a LINK to a good article I stumbled across tonight. Seems that lifting weights or using a Nautilus machine is really good for you...maybe better than running. Good news....I'd rather use the Nautilus machine than run anytime.

regards, Rich

First weigh in tomorrow morning. I started lifting weights and doing less cardio. I'm burnt out from doing it.

Jim, then definitely read the article LINKed above. I reaffirms something I read a month or so ago about weights vs running.

AND....no matter what....doing something that you enjoy doing... means you will do more of it... more often. I can blast around the Nautilus room in twenty minutes, doing 12 reps x 12 machines. Love it! Wish I didn't have to take off the days in between. Rich
