Maintained @ 203 the last week. Cheated 3 days last weekend followed by a work trip where I did OK but not great.  Pretty happy to find a level I can maintain.  Hope to cross 200 this week.

Week One results:

Starting weight- 155.5
Today- 146.5 EDIT 154.5 today. Talk about wishful typing!

My goal is a 1 pound/week loss but still felt a little disappointed as I was a bit lower yesterday.  Ha!

Activity level- averaged 12-14k steps per day, walked every day. Biggest change was to lengthen my morning commute walk from 10 to 25 minutes by going to a further station.  Then added in walks on break and lunchtimes plus uphill walk home from closer station.  When it's not dark at night I may walk from further station.

Food - cut out all unplanned snacking and reduced portion sizes.  Will continue to focus on portion sizes and increasing vegetables and legumes this week!

I'm late to the party but I'm in. Several years ago I lost 75 lbs and got down to 265. Got an office job and the weight has slowly crept back up. I will start with 10% but would love to finish the year below 250 lbs. Currently 310 lbs.

I keep forgetting to weigh in. I am anal enough that I never step on the scale except upon first awakening in the morning and totally buck naked. Best consistency of results IMO

Weigh in day - 275, down 4 lbs this week, 19 in total!   Really worked hard at this week as I went to the gym 5 times, made really good decisions with my food (I am following the weight watchers program) and I also bought a yoga mat this week and did 5 sessions of yoga via YouTube.  Have never done yoga before and I certain do stink at it but I like how I feel afterwards as I have been complaining of feeling 'tight' for a year or so and the stretching in yoga is really helping.  As a 50 YO overweight guy I know I have a long way to go but given I can do it in the privacy of my home I think I will continue with yoga.  Really pleased with my progress so far.   Best of luck to all.

I'm in too.

[...]

I'm currently at 149, so I'd like to get down to about 135.  I'm going to do my best to cut out snacking between meals, and I'm going to plan out dinners every week so we don't default to pasta with bread or buying pizza next door.  Also, I'm trying to get to at least one HIIT class a week, do ~50 pushups a day, and go for a walk with baby every weekend day that it is warm enough for him - we'll say above 30 degrees F with very little wind. 

My weight/squishy-ness is mostly from eating too much, but when I work out and make an effort, it is easier to say no to bad things, because I feel like I'm ruining my hard work :)  Someday I'll put aside the extra money to buy myself a barbell and some bumper plates, and then I'll just do deadlifts every day, and it will be amazing.

I'll try weekly weigh-ins on Sundays.

Well, that pan of brownies I made last week was a bad idea.

Weigh in #1: 148.2
- I did 50 pushups every day, took baby for a walk twice, and went to HIIT class on Saturday, so that is good, at least.  I also have a meal plan, so it is just those desserts and snacking at work that are the biggest problem.

Weigh in day has arrived.

191  December 24
188  January 1
185  January 8
185  January 15
184  January 22
184  January 29

It looks like I stood still, and I essentially did, but there was some weight lost. I decided at the start to round my recorded weight to the nearest pound, no tenths.

Last week I was 184.3, this week I was 183.6, so I did lose .7 pound.

Cravings for sweets remained strong at times, but I continued to successfully resist.

That's an ambitious goal OneStep, but I know you can do it!

Count me in as well. Weighed in at 249.4lb on 1/8 and 245.6lb on 1/15 (today I am 244.6lbs). I have an upcoming trip to Austin, TX for the MotoGP race in April and I'd like to get down to ~215lb by then. The regiment I am following has me dropping my weight based upon a percentage, 1%, on a weekly basis. I'll provide weekly weigh-ins in the future and if I average a loss of 2.5lb per week I should reach my initial target.

Weigh In (lbs)
1/8: 249.4
1/15: 245.6
1/22: 244.2
1/29: 243.8

Slow progress but progress nonetheless, I'll take it! I'm not sure about anyone else but weekends are generally when I spend time with my immediate family or friends and let's just say it can become quite easy to derail all of your efforts during the week without exercising any restraint. My long term success will depend upon remaining disciplined the entire week, especially on the weekends. Continue building upon the momentum you've built everyone!

I'm in.  Weighted myself 2 days ago, I was 228 (I've been fluctuating around 230).  I'm 6'4, so while I'm overweight, it's not super obvious.  I was 180 almost 2 years ago, and had a lot of health issues since.  If I was at 100% that would be my goal, but 200 with some of my muscle back would be fantastic.  My biggest hurdle will be saying no to the snacks at the office.
So 12/27: 228
1/12: 220

I stopped snacking as much, and there wasn't food brought in between Christmas and New Years (hardly anyone was at work), so it was easy to say no.  Now that it's being brought in again I've made a rule that I can have two bites, but no more.  So I'm cutting things in pieces, but it's easier than saying no outright.
I forgot to post, but I was at 218 last week.

2/1: 214

I'm not sure how I lost 4 lbs this week, I ate some junk.  Then last night I was starving, so I ate everything I had in my kitchen :P

1/9  : 340
1/19: 327 (3.8% loss)


2/1  : 322 (5% loss total)

Diet has been perfect. Since Monday. lolololol. Still, 18 pounds down in about 3 weeks isn't so bad. 47 more to go to the re-eval point, 57 more to go til the stated goal here. Basically, at 275 I'll be deciding if 265 is good enough, if I really hate being under 300, or if I want to shoot for 230 and have abs.

I am in.  Starting at 220.4 this morning.  I would like to be 195, dropping another pants size in the process.

Down to 217.6 this morning.  Almost 1%, works for me.  I was as low as 216.2 during the month but I will stick with once a month reporting.  Working on adding some strength to help with the weight loss.  For example I have never been able to complete more than three chin-ups or pull-ups, and that was when I was a young lad.  But it is a goal this year to be able to do 10 or more.

i started doing pullups around this time last year... i could do 1 or 2 ... i'm up to 8 ... losing weight is also a key part to moving up as well as the strength building. my goal is 20 ... dont know if i'll make it or not.

Feeling good about a small gain.  Visiting relatives for the last 10 days with lots of fancy eating had me afraid to step on the scale until this morning.  I need to up my game if I'm going to see any progress though.  So hard when its cold, snowing and blustery outside.   I can tell that in this type of weather I want to eat all the carbs!   And a houseguest just put a pot of potato soup in the slow cooker for tonight.  Sigh.

12/28 - 153
01/06 - 150
01/17 - 150
01/27 - 149
02/02 - 150 -  2% down

Goal:  137

eta:  Looking back I see that I tried a similar challenge last year and also got all whiny about cold weather in Feb.  On the plus side, I guess I have identified my weakness!!

First week weigh in for me. Had a good first week. I like to start off slowly by making one change at a time. This week I just started using the elliptical everyday for 30 min first thing in the morning. I have been doing some weight training as well, but stayed away from cardio. Over the next few weeks I plan to start making some cuts to portion sizes.

1/28- 310
2/4-   306

Down 2 lbs this week to 273. Started at 294 so 7.1%. Activity level this week was through the roof - yoga 7 days , gym 6 days.  Had my first 'cheat' last night - homemade pizza and a shared bottle of wine, did I ever enjoy that!!   Back at it this morning as I am getting anxious to get into the 260s.

Very late to this but I'm in.

Weighed in at 220lbs after Christmas, but this morning down to 215.8lbs. Genuinely don't know exactly why, but I'll take it. I'll weigh in each Sunday and have cheat day after that.

Back at the gym tomorrow following a few weeks off. My goals are two fold

1: Sub 195lbs weight
2: To train 3+days per week including a proper stretching routine and ended with HIIT cardio.

Good work everyone so far

Week One results:

Starting weight- 155.5
Today-154.5
Feb 12/17 - 154.4

Hmm.  I was 153.5 on Friday two weeks in a row but something about the weekends...
I had a minor medical procedure last week but the activity level was still good. Time to take a harder look at food.

Love this thread!  Just enough accountability for me and glad to cheer others on too.

Weigh in day.

191  December 24
188  January 01
185  January 08
185  January 15
184  January 22
184  January 29
181  February 05

Three pounds lost this week, I'm happy about that. It also makes 10 pounds lost since I started the diet the day after Christmas. Nine more pounds to make my goal of 172. I do have a stretch goal to make it into the 160's.

I skipped lunch several days in the last week, and I did not make up for it at dinner or night time snacking.

Hi everyone,
4 years ago I read an article that greatly intrigued me, download link is here:
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://charleycropley.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/FASTING-ART-Harpers.pdf&ved=0ahUKEwjSjc3T0_nRAhVV7GMKHZzFBRoQFggeMAE&usg=AFQjCNHzEzboQNA85psQWoJqi01ADgbYSA&sig2=whIR5G1AFxO1pU3iJAuXYA
Last August  started a fast that sort of lasted about 6 weeks. The first 2 weeks were pretty much a full fast, the next 2 weeks were about 500 calories of protein mostly, the next 2 weeks about 1000 calories.
I started doing weights again around week 3...
This fast works extremely well, even more so for athletic people who have a bunch of muscle, but have gained fat on top of what would otherwise be a fairly strong, muscular build.
All of my fat dissapeared, not very much muscular loss, and when I was done, I was back to bow I reentered myself looking, 10 years earlier... I started about 175 and finished 145...

Weigh ins:
Week #1: 148.2 - I did 50 pushups every day, took baby for a walk twice, and went to HIIT class on Saturday, so that is good, at least.  I also have a meal plan, so it is just those desserts and snacking at work that are the biggest problem.
Week #2: 149 - welp, I'm starting this off at a terrible pace.  50 pushups a day, nice long walk 2 days this weekend, but family in town = way too much food.  I was down to 146.4 on Friday morning. On the bright side, Baby Chaskavitch got to go on a swing for the first time ever this weekend, and man was it cute :)

1/9  : 340
1/19: 327 (3.8% loss)
2/1  : 322 (5% loss total)
2/5  : 316  (7% loss)

Been stupidly sick lately, on a liquid diet and barely feeling like eating that. Still, another 6 pounds off is nice if I have to feel like I'm dying.

I'm 3 months postpartum and currently sitting at 154 lbs--my goal weight is 138, which is what I weighed before pregnancy!  I gained a ton while I was pregnant, getting up to 210, so I'm really, really happy with my progress so far.

That is awesome work! I'm incredibly impressed with the speed you're getting back to your old weight.

Dang man good progress.  One benefit of being sick I guess.  I was in the same boat, fever, chills the whole shebang.  dropped about 5lbs from it and it's stayed off.

Weighed in this morning:

1/03/17 - 272
1/24/17 - 268

2/6/17 - 264

02-06 - 130.5  - actually pleased to see this as I was on vacation and attended two birthday parties. 
01-22 - 130  - actually the line for 130 was completely visible beside the red needle of the scale so it is actually less!
01-15 - 132.
01-08 - 132.


Goal:  120
Seeing the possibilities

Weigh-in time

January 3  -- 287 lbs
January 6  -- 284 lbs
January 16 -- 283 lbs

So, down four pounds so far (1.4%).

February 3 -- 281 lbs

Yesterday was Super Bowl Sunday, so there was a lot of snacking and beer. I think I'll delay this week's weigh-in to Thursday or Friday. :)

148.8 - January 16
147.0 - January 23
145.8 - February 6

I skipped weighing in last week because I fell off calorie counting and ate a ton of crap.  I've been back to it for a few days now.  I seem to have woken up with some sort of stomach virus or something.  Silver lining: maybe that will equate to some easy weight loss.

<----  Hey BabyShark, lower numbers are that a way.

Also, maybe consider the Bronx Diet. It dates back to near prehistoric time (the 1970's), but all I've ever read of the book is page one, which is all anyone really needs.

From page one of The Bronx Diet:
"The Radical Principle:
To gain weight, eat more. To lose weight, eat less."

It's the only diet I've ever needed.

Count me in as well. Weighed in at 249.4lb on 1/8 and 245.6lb on 1/15 (today I am 244.6lbs). I have an upcoming trip to Austin, TX for the MotoGP race in April and I'd like to get down to ~215lb by then. The regiment I am following has me dropping my weight based upon a percentage, 1%, on a weekly basis. I'll provide weekly weigh-ins in the future and if I average a loss of 2.5lb per week I should reach my initial target.

Weigh In (lbs)
1/8: 249.4
1/15: 245.6
1/22: 244.2
1/29: 243.8
2/5: 243

Slow progress but progress nonetheless, I'll take it! I'm not sure about anyone else but weekends are generally when I spend time with my immediate family or friends and let's just say it can become quite easy to derail all of your efforts during the week without exercising any restraint. My long term success will depend upon remaining disciplined the entire week, especially on the weekends. Continue building upon the momentum you've built everyone!

Weekends continue to be my achilles heel but move forward striving to get better I shall. On the brighter side, I continue to pack on lean muscle and my strength gains in the gym persist week after week.

Ha I know, I'm working on it.  I hadn't eaten a few things in a while and reintroduced booze and that clearly didn't help.  I'm already on the right path again this week so hopefully next Monday's weigh in is better.  I also tend to fluctuate a ton during the week so as long as the general trend goes down, I feel better.

I've found that when I have a large weight gain after an undisciplined day or two, it's almost all water weight that disappears pretty quickly once I get back on the wagon. But I tend to load up on salty snacks and restaurant food, which might explain it.

Welp, looks like maybe I got all offended when everyone else was just having a good time. Mea culpa.

Down to 173 lbs. My plummet, it is legendary.

was weird.  i weighed 2lbs more this morning than yesterday.  likely due to Work function and eating dinner later and drinking lots of extra water later at night.  i usually only have one glass when i get home.  Really hoping to cross that 200 mark tomorrow morning ... fingers crossed.
