I was going to post my weight yesterday, but the stupid scale said 208 and I said no way am I going to post that stupid weight. Did not do anything special yesterday, just the wonderful daily fluctuation. Kinda like the stock market in reverse, there are ups and downs you just want to see the slow trend down.

so the potato diet then?

 

just gotta find the motivation - and getting all of the junk food out of the house helps as well   - HTH

@Canacuna  what is this pushup program you speak of?

and realize if you are working out which adds muscle which makes the weight gain that much more impressive.  :flex:

 

@Angry Beavers - this is the one I've been doing: https://hundredpushups.com/

I used it once several years ago and made some really good progress. And then life and laziness happened and now I'm starting all over, haha.

that's the one I did and a few others in the otis thread 

I still routinely do sets of 50 or 60 and it's noticeable in my arms and chest

Thanks for hundredpushup website. It is tough as I don't want to chance the gym  and running - well it getting boring after a while and it is getting snowy as well - looking for something else!

LOOK AT ME - Starting on week 3 on Monday ! 💪

That program worked really well until the end but if you're over 40 like a lot of us then you might want to redo weeks you've already finished.  The goal is to build up your base and they do a good job working you to fatigue but when you do sets of 35, 40, 25, 25, and then struggle with that last set of 50, your ego is going to tell you you finished it but your muscles don't care.

good to know - over 50 actually. I would like to think I have a decent base,  but I don't. I got to 48 just hoping out of the chair cold with a nice steady pace but I know I have not lifted squat for several months.....

Just weighed in this morning and realized I’ve hit my initial target weight.  Decided to reset for another 5 lb loss in the next month for 3 reasons:

1.  Headed to my parents’ house for xmas, and they have horrible eating patterns, which I often get pulled into.  Need to build in some cushion for likely weight gain while there.

2.  My ultimate goal is to get to a better level of fitness than I had while living in NYC.  That would involved a) adding upper body muscle — thus the 100 push-up deal — and still being another 4-5 lbs lighter than I currently am.

3.  Without a goal, it will be hard for me to maintain my discipline.  That’s a problem to solve down the road, but for now, this new way of eating isn’t embedded enough in my routine to consider another approach yet.

For anyone who just read this thread for the first time or anyone who has been trying this out but it hasn’t worked yet — trust me, if it can work for me, it can work for anyone.  My lifelong eating habits have been subpar.  My parents eat decently at best.  Mom was massively overweight much of her life.  Dad had high metabolism (due to smoking and anxiety) but eats poorly.  My friends and co-workers know me as “the guy who loves donuts.”

But just the simplicity of the MyFitnessPal app paired with publicly committing to a goal in here has really worked.  Everytime I consider eating something, I check out calories in that ######## app.  And look at how many calories I have left in the day.

The one thing I haven’t done is weight myself every day.  Others do, and that works for them.  It wouldn’t work for me — has to be more about the daily process than the daily outcome for me.  But to each their own, gotta do what works for each of us.

Thanks again to everyone posting in here and helping hold me (and others) accountable.

This is really the part that has helped me.  We would do competitions in the office periodically and I would enjoy the same success, but the pandemic has been hard.  Keep it up!

Full disclosure I slept in this morning so weighed about an hour and a half later so I probably should have been around 213.1.  Wouldn't be surprised to see a small bump tomorrow to reflect that.  I'm now halfway to my secondary target of 200.  The grind to get there will be slower and then the real test to see if I can get down to 190.  Once I'm under 200, I'll have to greatly increase my exercise to get to 190.  This will definitely require more calories than I'm taking in and I expect it to be very volatile.  I'll try to keep it as consistent as I can (same level of exercise each day - primarily cardio - until I find the right calorie/effort).  After the first couple of days, I haven't been struck with hunger pains nor lightheadiness.  Energy levels have been normal, so it will take some trial and error to find that proper match.

I am down 10 lbs as of this morning. The Monday after thanksgiving was the heaviest I’ve ever been, so it’s really not that much of an achievement, I lost 5 lbs in the first couple days. Need to keep the momentum going the rest of this year and just make this my lifestyle now. Lots of walks, push-up, and reasonable eating pegged at about 2k calories per day ought to do it. 
 

I’ve been forcing myself to go to bed early which I think has been a huge help. You can’t eat when you’re sleeping.

Well done.  Like you wrote, it’s not rocket science.   Exercise, reasonable eating.

Your last too sentences are why I plan to basically sleep all day from here on out. ;)

In the past I would seriously eat 1000 calories at night as a “snack” just because I was stoned and bored more than anything else. It’s hard to be healthy with habits like that. I don’t think I fully realized how bad it had gotten, the late night eating. Looking back I think it accounts for the majority of my weight gain (which was close to 50 pounds) over the last two years.

Totally get it.  I would often eat a pint of ice cream at night.  After everyone went to bed.  Or a half bag of M&Ms.

That's a win in and of itself. This is the hardest time of year to lose weight, so being down anything at this point is a victory.  You can use it as a springboard next year.

Finally moving in the right direction.  Weighed in this morning at 217.  Looking at the trend line, I may not hit 10 by Xmas, but I'll at least have a good start to carry into the New Year.

Slow and steady.  Down to 216.  I did lose over an inch in the waist, so that's good.  I was pleasantly surprised when I had to tighten the belt buckle more than normal.

A surprising 1.4 pound increase, but it goes with the territory.

I am down a couple of more pounds since this time last week, but I don't really recommend the method. I ended up coming down shingles toward the end of last week. I haven't been able to keep up with the exercise, but at least it's limiting some bad food and drink choices.

Oof.  I've heard getting the shingles is just terrible, hope you feel better soon.

Well, I have Otis’d this thing right up. Didn’t lose right away like I usually do, got caught up in some busy stuff, and in general only half heartedly attempted to lose. So to sum up, I weigh today what I weighed the Monday that we started. And all that without a sip of alcohol. 

Never to late to do a reset.  Start tonight.

I've still been struggling with my diet - work craziness is just starting to wind down and I have a sweet tooth and there's so much temptation around the house right now. Still consistent with my 10K steps and pushups though. Down another 0.5 lbs... don't think I'm going to hit my goal, but considering I usually gain a good 5 pounds or more this time of year, I'm feeling pretty good about where I'm at. 

Definitely going to amp it up after Christmas. Would like to start running and lifting again. Have some adjustable dumbbells in my garage that I've ignored for too long.

Really awesome to see this continued demonstration of discipline.

I’ve been treading water the past two days.  Wife has been baking a ton of Xmas cookies.  I’m doing better than a normal year, but still eating 2 cookies a day.   Doing a weigh in tomorrow.  Hoping to be down 1/2 lb from 3 days ago.  No guarantees.

I should rename my FBG handle as Tub-o-lard. Law school was not kind to my waistline and it got even worse after kids. Starting weight: 229 lbs. Baby steps. 

227 this morning. Not much working out, but using myfitnesspal to track calories is huge. It helps me be conscious of how much I'm shoveling in. Otherwise it's too easy to walk by the kitchen and grab a granola bar or other munchy, multiplied by several times a day and it's easy to get fat. I also try to remind myself that the feeling I have is being thirsty, not hungry.

224. Feeling good. Targeting 1500 calories a day but generally ending up around 1700-1800. 

222 this morning. Had to tighten the belt a notch this morning, that was awesome! Need 3lbs to hit the -10 goal by Christmas. I think it's doable.

220.4 this morning. Started at 229.2. Probably won't make a full 10lbs, but am still hoping to get to 219.9 by Christmas day.

Well not to get too graphic, but I have got to increase my water take.  I think I have an extra 2 pounds in poop that refuses to come out :) Now entering Day 4 of "The Young and the Poopless". 

This has been a fun journey and everyone's encouragement has really made a difference!

I am down a couple of more pounds since this time last week, but I don't really recommend the method. I ended up coming down shingles toward the end of last week. I haven't been able to keep up with the exercise, but at least it's limiting some bad food and drink choices. 

Ouch! That sucks

Well, I have Otis’d this thing right up. Didn’t lose right away like I usually do, got caught up in some busy stuff, and in general only half heartedly attempted to lose. So to sum up, I weigh today what I weighed the Monday that we started. And all that without a sip of alcohol. 

WINNER!!!

Sorry guys. Ive let us down tonight. my wife brought home coca dusted almonds from aldi. Those things are like crack to me. Then I had some Christmas cookies they made and some popcorn. What a mess. 

No way Im weighing myself tomorrow morning. Ill check in on Christmas eve. At this point, just hoping to hit 5lbs

BUT, had it not been for this thread, there is zero doubt I would have gained that 5lbs so there is that

I won't get on again for a few days either, pretty sure I have not lost much during the holidays but again i'll say that 1,600, 1.800, 2000, whatever the total exercise minutes or numbers I finish up with, it definitely kept me going from 180 all the way back over 200 lbs which would be a tragedy. I likely am somewhere in the 185 range where I started but had it not been for some movement on my part, this would have been a disaster.

  • Dec 24         212.9                -13.2

And there we have it!  Looks like 13.2 is the final weight loss for the period, which is a little over 3 pounds a week.  I know they recommend 2 pounds a week as "safe" weight loss but I've felt pretty good throughout the entire time.  I really appreciate all the encouragement and I hope everyone is pleased with their results, even if you didn't make a 7 - 10 pound loss. If you didn't have this encouragement, you may have put on weight during this calorie loaded time so any weight loss is a win.  I'll be looking to hit 200 as my next goal, so maybe by Groundhog's Day.

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!

I didnt do it. BUT, back on the horse after today. Thx for not letting me gain 10 pounds. Fire up the Im losing 10 pounds for Valentines day thread and Ill be in. 

I was going to suggest bfred change the title to lose 10 LBS between new years and Valentine's day. I'm in again. I like these defined 5-6 week intervals, as I feel it's more mentally manageable and gives me a realistic short term goal.

220.4 this morning. Started at 229.2. Probably won't make a full 10lbs, but am still hoping to get to 219.9 by Christmas day. 

Final weigh-in is 220.4 this morning. Not quite 9 pounds. Very happy with that. 

The daily fluctuations would be frustrating if you live and die by that. I actually saw 219.0 the other day just before lunch, but that must have been after a monster poop. I hopped on the scale just before and just after the shower this morning and went from 220.4 to 221.8. Meh. So now I'll try to stay at 220 or below through New Years and then start the New Years to Valentine's Day 10 pound challenge. 

Merry Christmas everybody 🎄!

Today was rough, as expected.  Very poor food choices all day.   Starting over from scratch tomorrow — back to my routine from the past month.  Hopefully the past two days didn’t cause too much damage! ;)

Anyone else with me?   8-10 lbs between now and Valentine’s Day.  Let’s do this.  Don’t wait until New Year’s Day.  Strike while the iron is hot.
