166....only gained 3 pounds on vacation. I'm pretty happy with that considering the rich food included in the meeting. Actually, I'm psyched and ready to get back at it!

Geez that's insane. I get 4hb in general but what specifically have you been eating?

12/28 - 153
01/06 - 150
01/17 - 150
01/27 - 149
02/02 - 150
02/10 - 144
04/05 - 141

Goal:  137

This is getting wierd.. at least 3 posts disappeared with updates.  Not that my progress is screamingly fast!  The last 10lb is definitely the hardest.  I am hanging in with low-carb, high-fat approach.  I really want to get to my goal weight by May so that I can spend the rest of the year struggling with maintenance :-(

196 today.   

i eat chili for lunch and chicken breast and asparagus for dinner.  i'm also pretty sick right now so i've been skipping breakfast

this is just shreading simple water weight that was gained by eating other carbs this weekend primarily.  i've been as low as 192 so when you bounce up the weight comes off faster b/c you're just shreading water.

Also, I can "shop" in my closet a bit more, now; some clothes fit now that I couldn't wear in Nov./Dec. :)

Same for me. Although they are far from roomy and comfortable, I can now fit into my skinny jeans, which are four inches smaller than my fat jeans. But being in my 50's, skin tight jeans do not appeal so for now I am sticking with my medium jeans which are comfortable. Three months ago they were way too tight.

I'm down 5.2% now.  Slow and steady.  Still no sugar.  Considering adjusting my diet further to keto...

Hanging out at 299-301 while I wait for my surgery next week. Doc suggested I quit dropping weight and maintain until a couple weeks after I go under the knife. Still looking to hit 275 By July, but we'll see.

I'm down 11% since December. Whoo hoo!

Starting weight in December: 265
Today's weight: 235.8 (-29.8)

This last drop was a lot and fast, so I don't expect much fast progress for the next couple of weeks. Slow and steady wins the race.

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. :)

I plateaued at 280 for a few weeks, then finally broke through by taking a page out of b42's book -- lots of veggies and protein, a little bit of fruit, no grains or dairy. Down to 270 as of yesterday, for a total loss of 5.9%. Shooting for 260 a month from now when bike racing season starts, 240 by the end of summer.

Good job!  I'm currently at 206 after a week of no bike riding due to business travel.  I'd like to get to 188 for bike racing (time trials) by August.

I'm signed up for a local mountain bike racing series. I figure every pound I lose is one fewer to carry on climbs. :)

I am doing a terrible job.  I'm down from 149 to 144, and that's only because I got sick.  Recommitting, especially since the weather is nice again and I can take baby for walks in the mornings on the weekend AND in the afternoon when I get home from work. 

It's terrible, but taking him for walks is good for weight loss because I'm not sitting at home snacking before dinner, more so than because I'm getting more exercise.  I have no idea how to listen to my inner reasonable person who says "hey, maybe don't make that tortilla with peanut butter and melted chocolate chips..."

172  April 09   <---  10% goal reached, 19 pounds lost.

Three pounds lost this week, which takes me to my 10% goal of 19 pounds lost. I fasted three consecutive days this week, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I bicycled 20 miles Saturday.

On my eating days I'm eating very good. Steak from Costco with buttered baked potatoes. Home made soup and chili. Bacon and eggs with biscuits. Pancakes with butter (Kerry Gold grass fed) and organic real maple syrup ($11 for 34 ounces!).

Despite the highly indulgent pancakes and syrup, I have managed to keep other sweets and bad foods out of my mouth. Since January 1, the following favorite foods have not crossed my lips: chocolate anything, ice cream (includes ice cream like foods, such as sherbet or frozen yogurt), pie, cake, donuts, candy, chips (damn I miss Lay's Sour Cream & Onion chips), and pizza. Also no sugary drinks (including fruit juice), but I gave those up years ago.

Now I will work toward my stretch goal of 165 or less. After that, maybe a best hope goal of sub 160.

Well my goal for today was to be 258, but when I stepped on the scale it said 259. I then went to the gym and worked my tail off. When I stepped back on the scale it said 258 so I think I will take a liberty today and claim 258 (2lbs down for the week). My wife and I take off for Paris this afternoon for 8 days and my completely unrealistic goal is to come back still at 258.  So that makes a loss of 36 lbs so far this year. The Paris trip is in celebration of me 'semi retiring' as of April 1, so I don't mind taking a liberty of claiming 258 today.  I'll report back on the 19th. Here's hoping I don't gain 10 lbs.  No more liberties when I get back.

I left for vacation at the end of March, hovering around 259-260.  I was hoping to come back weighing about the same.  Came back and found out I lost about 5 lbs.  Might be water weight since I was in the tropics sweating my ass off, but I was also drinking a gallon or more per day of water.  I'll see where I settle in over the next week of normal life.

You have my sympathies with the Easter candy - that's generally my biggest weak point after Girl Scout cookies.

My low hip measurement is budging sloooooowly down thanks to intermittent fasting. I'm doing 16:8 most weekdays. Weekends are my eat anything time. I'm resolved to alternating slow progress and maintaining at this point.

Hips start in Feb: 39"
Hips today: 36.5" (-6.4%)
Goal: 35"

In other news, I'm enjoying IF as a money saving method. I definitely spend less on eggs and bacon when I'm skipping breakfast. Also I'm back to eating homemade bread which is cheap.

Mar 16: net -4
Mar 23: net -3 (up 1)
Mar 30: net -3 (no movement)
Apr 6: net -3 (no movement)
Apr 13: net -5

I was down net 6 earlier this week and was so tempted to just switch the accountability to my weekly low, but I'm sticking to the rules I set at the beginning.

It's funny, this weekend I saw my sister's in-laws, and they were all speaking about how I "look well".  Which of course is code for "you've lost weight since I saw you 6 years ago".  And I hate it.  They'd say that it just means that they're giving me positive reinforcement and it shows that they care.  But what they really mean is "I've always been judging you by your weight, congratulations for now matching my desires for how you look."  Things like that actually decrease my motivation.

To be fair, a couple of days ago my old boss said the same thing, but what he meant was that my hair looked good (stated) and I wasn't in jeans & tshirt (unstated). 
Using procrastination to my advantage since 2001.

12/27: 198.4
1/3:   193.0
1/10: 190.6
1/17: 188.2
1/24: 188.4

3/21: 178.8
3/28: 178.0
4/4: 176.2

4/11: 174.6

 Loss of 12% now. I've upped the carbs some, first bike race on Saturday coming up. I'm now to the point where maintenance is Goal #1. I've set limits on carbs/week, beer consumption, and an "action weight" where I'll immediately go into loss mode if I exceed it. I will continue to update here.

Goal for now is to keep 7 day average <180 lbs from now through September.  I may start a round of keto in the fall so I can keep my bike training separate from keto eating. (Bike training starts in December for me. ) Hoping I've got enough in place now to stop the annual yo-yo I've been on!

I'm joining even though I don't plan to do quite 10% (8% if you'd like a number). I like the people in this forum and the extra, FREE motivation will be helpful! I don't think I'll go back and read all of the posts; I will just take it from here. I like what I read on the first page...

I've been a WW Lifetime member since 1999 or 2000 (lost 25 lbs) and have gone up and down, with stints back at WW here and there (even worked there a little bit for a few years to keep up motivation), but generally kept the bulk of it off. I went back to WW last Saturday after two years of not going. I'm only 7 lbs down from when I first started :( (which is 8 lbs up from when I last attended), and I'm feeling it in my clothes. One of my big motivations for going back and taking care of this is so I can shop in my own closet! I have plenty of things that are too snug right now and I will be very pleased to wear them again.

Overall I have a healthy diet and get a reasonable amount of exercise -- it's just that the dietary strictness (for lack of a better word) has gradually gone away (like it does!), and things have added up. I need to bring this back to a top priority and take care of it before it creeps up more. I was 157.8 at my weigh-in last Saturday (ideally want to be in the 145 - 150 range). The week has gone great - I really like the changes to the program and I've felt very satisfied. Hoping to see a downward result at the scale this Saturday to keep my motivation high!

Cool, I missed most of this thread but just finished my 10%.  I participated in the 2"16 thread but ended up failing.  Got serious in January and am now down around 10%.   My optimum weight is another 10% so I hope to finish that by the end of the year.  Expect to your a bit with a big trip coming up

Here I'm consolidating my erratic weigh-in schedule.

18-Jan:  175-180 lbs
22-Jan:  171 lbs
9-Feb:  173 lbs
11-Feb: 167 lbs
17-Feb: 167 lbs

I obviously failed for a little while, and went back to my original weight. Now I've got a new plan, instead of just winging it. I started mid-March, and it really took a few weeks to
20-Mar: 175 lbs
27-Mar: 173 lbs
3-Apr: 170 lbs (whoosh!)
10-Apr: 170 lbs

Unofficial weigh in today at 168 lbs. My plan seems to be working. Gave me enough courage to rejoin the thread.

My Friday pre-weekend self-motivation post:

March 24 - 149.4 

Jan 21 - 155.5
Jan 28 - 154.5
Feb 12 - 153
Feb 19 - 151.6
Feb 26 - 151.4
March 5- 152.8
March 12 - 152.2
March 19 - 150.4
March 26 - 149.0??


March 26 - 150.4

I'll be travelling till just before Easter.  Activity level will be high but meals will be irregular and no access to scales.  This will be a good test of my ability to at least maintain 150 during non-routine times.

April 14 - 150.4!   After 2+ weeks of planes, trains, hotels, and restaurants, I'm pleased with that.  Now to buckle back down.

I'm very pleased to be down 1.8 lbs this week! This is a great motivator and should keep me reasonably on track through Easter dinner tomorrow. Onward and downward:) The right frame of mind makes ALL the difference for me, and I feel like I'm finally there.

I began the year at 158 and yesterday weighed 146.6. Not quite 10%, but at 5'9 1/2", I think 145 is more realistic than 142. We'll see how I feel when I get there.

My Friday pre-weekend self-motivation post:

March 24 - 149.4 

Jan 21 - 155.5
Jan 28 - 154.5
Feb 12 - 153
Feb 19 - 151.6

March 12 - 152.2
March 19 - 150.4
March 26 - 149.0??


March 26 - 150.4

I'll be travelling till just before Easter.  Activity level will be high but meals will be irregular and no access to scales.  This will be a good test of my ability to at least maintain 150 during non-routine times.

April 14 - 150.4!   After 2+ weeks of planes, trains, hotels, and restaurants, I'm pleased with that.  Now to buckle back down.

April 16 - 149.8. Goal for the week is to stay solidly in the 140's.

18-Jan:  175-180 lbs

9-Feb:  173 lbs
11-Feb: 167 lbs
17-Feb: 167 lbs

17-Apr: 168.5 lbs

Exciting. Especially considering yesterday was my cheat day. Pizza passed the seal of these lips. Like, a lot of pizza. I've been dropping into ketosis around hour 18 on my fast days, which means I'm running pretty lean on carbs. I'm surprised the re-feed didn't cause a jump in water retention. But whatevs, I'll take it.

Here I'm consolidating my erratic weigh-in schedule.

18-Jan:  175-180 lbs
22-Jan:  171 lbs
9-Feb:  173 lbs
11-Feb: 167 lbs
17-Feb: 167 lbs


I obviously failed for a little while, and went back to my original weight. Now I've got a new plan, instead of just winging it. I started mid-March, and it really took a few weeks to
20-Mar: 175 lbs
27-Mar: 173 lbs
3-Apr: 170 lbs (whoosh!)
10-Apr: 170 lbs

Unofficial weigh in today at 168 lbs. My plan seems to be working. Gave me enough courage to rejoin the thread.

Nice!  Always a plus when you can drop or maintain after a cheat day.  I usually seem to go up 3-4 lbs after a cheat day.  It's mostly water and sheds pretty quick.  I need a cheat day soon.  I've been planning for macaroni and cheese with hot dogs for lunch (random childhood craving I've been having for the past month).

4/5/2017           302.6         46.5
4/20/2017   299.8     46

Well, things slowed down for a bit as I was getting prepped for surgery, but a week after and I'm back on the diet plan mostly. Still eating 20% over maintenance calories, but weight is coming off. Healing is hard work I suppose. I should be able to do cardio again in a week, then back to the weights in another 4 weeks. Here's to 225 bodyweight and a 500 pound squat.

Doing OK. Friday night's higher carb dinner was OK, but Saturday and Easter combined were a ton of carbs/lower quality food. Totally expected though, part of the plan form day 1. Since Monday, back on track keeping things in line. :-)

i need to get back on it.  i've been floundering in the mid 190s for a few weeks b/c i had the mumps now my wife has the mumps ... only want to lose 5-10 more pounds and 3-4 weeks is all it will take til i can then just maintain that weight.

on the plus side i think i've found a reasonable balance in my life between the diet i follow and cheating as i'm maintaining now.

I definitely ate above my TDEE on Sunday, in the form of flour, sugar, and potato chips. Since then, I've been noticing an increased psychological urge to eat without hunger, and to make poor food choices when I am hungry. The blowback isn't bad enough to make me consider stopping a cheat day, but it's an interesting data point. I now understand how some people end up saying they simply don't want to 'cheat.'

I was travelling last week on Thursday, and I'm out this Thursday and next Thursday too, so I'll just record the closest days.

Mar 16: net -4
Mar 23: net -3 (up 1)
Mar 30: net -3 (no movement)
Apr 6: net -3 (no movement)
Apr 13: net -5
Apr 18: net -6
Apr 25: net -5

I'm actually pretty happy with that, as I was at a conference where there was a lot of chocolate/candies on the tables and very easy access to desserts at every meal.  I only drank alcohol once, and avoided juices.  There was a large spike when I arrived home, and it only took two days to drop off and I've eaten at a restaurant since then.

This week the SO is coming with me in a city known for its restaurants.  We've discussed strategies and I think we can make this work as a pair.

I've been MIA for a while and this weekend consisted of way too much whiskey and junk food at a comic con so I've fallen behind.

This morning's weigh in has me at 150.1 lbs, so down 6.8 lbs for the year but about 3 lbs higher than my lowest so far.

Height: 5'7"
Weight: 176
10%: 158.4
Goal: 145

Weighed in at 163.2 this morning!  5 more pounds to go to reach my 10%!  (I'm going VERY slow and steady.  Hopefully that means it will be easier to keep it off.)

I'm still eating a whole30ish diet.  The first month went well, but I wasn't seeing the results I thought I would, and then I realized that sweet peppers were causing negative reactions.  Peppers are nightshades, so I decided to go another 30 doing the autoimmune protocol.  And that's worked fantastically.  I was waking up some mornings, just reveling in the lack of aches. I'm now doing a very SLOW re-intro.  I want to be certain of the foods that are causing negative reactions.

Last couple of weeks I seemed to be stuck around 150 and I was prepared to be philosophical about that.  As long as I'm eating healthily and am physically active, maybe that's my sustainable weight.

And then yesterday and the day before I was 147.8!  Today (April 30) I've ticked back up to 148.6 but still.  Feeling very encouraged that my plan of healthy, delicious meals, careful snacking, and vigorous walking hasn't yet hit bottom.  I've been aiming for 145 and that might be the bottom but we'll see. 

I'm losing .5lb or less per week so as not to shock my mental or physical systems and set up resistance.

Happy spring vibes to everyone on this thread!
