Oh! I'm in!

I'm starting in at 165-166ish lbs, 39% BF.
My goal is to lose around 45lbs total and/or get to 15-18% BF.

I'm using the keto diet along with cheat days (working down to a single cheat meal every two weeks) as I've had great success with that before. Right now my plan is keto 6/7 days and 1 day of "cheat" but still requiring lots of vegetables.

Right now, I've just made some bad decisions this week because the bacon bits I used to prep my breakfast bacon-and-egg scramble are skeeving me out. The texture is terribad and it feels all gristly and fatty. I'll try just plain egg and cheese and maybe package up some fried mushrooms on the side for next week.

July weigh-in:

11/26/2017     253.4
12/31/2017     242.6
01/31/2018     234.8
02/28/2018     224.8
03/31/2018     220.0
04/29/2018     214.4
05/31/2018     209.4
06/30/2018     206.2
07/28/2018     201.6      27.4%

The last column is body fat percentage (I purchased a body fat scale during Amazon Prime Day).

Also, I had been monitoring my blood pressure since my doctor cut my medication dosage in half in April and it was consistently pretty low (almost too low). So I went back to my doctor and we decided to try eliminating that medication. That was a couple of weeks ago and my blood pressure has been higher but still good (around 120/80), so it looks like no more blood pressure medication!

Congrats Rab-bit! That's a huge amount of weight you lost and excellent job on getting off the blood pressure medication. Do you feel lots better/fitter/healthier too?

Thanks @Hirondelle! My energy level is definitely up and I am generally sleeping better, but the biggest improvement is just feeling better about myself!

Well, I had come to a full stop with losing weight and I think I am back in the game.  I started the year at 165 and I am now at 155.  I have 15 lbs to go and I think I finally can stick with watching my food intake.  It is a struggle but I have really cut back on my snacking.  I have also started working out, but just started, so i canít do much but everyday that I get off the couch is a win. 

Some of you are doing so good.  It is an inspiration.

So I tried my first ever group fitness class at my gym (and, like, third ever overall) - it was a "Body Combat" class. Martial art-sy moves to music. I say "-sy" because... well. They are, to me, at least. Especially the "karate" ones, since I actually do karate and... not like that.

But it was definitely a lot of fun! I enjoyed it and burned 500 Cal doing so. I probably made it harder on myself than I needed to since I dropped to my usual moving habits from karate and that means perma-crouch to take advantage of my naturally lower stance (read: I'm short af).

I'm going to try going every week, since I think it would be a great way to improve my overall endurance for actual fighting.

Heck, if I really love it, maybe I can look into teaching it at some point. It seems to be one of the less frequent offerings, and none run in the mornings. I wonder if there's a market for such high intensity classes in the mornings, but I'd love to run one.

I've been searching around for this thread, but alas, the search function of this forum is the weakest aspect.

Anyway!  My goal is to lose 10% of my body weight this year (goal weight: 121.3lbs, stretch goal: 118 lbs).  I started in April (really a baseline month to track what I was eating and how much/little I was moving).  Really got to work a few weeks later.

Posting in to share that I have maintained my weight loss at around 3-4 lbs above my original goal since March. I am currently at the weight it says on my driver's license, with a  BMI of 20.1, so my goal was probably unrealistic. During the summer I have been active enough to not even pay attention to food/calories, although once the weather turns cold this will take a little more work. Currently I am working on decreasing alcohol consumption and also making ab exercises a daily routine.

Congratulations to @MrsWolfeRN and @rab-bit ! I find the success stories to be really motivating, so keep 'em coming!

As for me, I'm finally below 70kg! The last time that I was at this weight I must have been more muscular, because my waist is jigglier than I remember it being. Back to the weight room for me!

That is incredible progress, congratulations! Have you had to adjust your intake / activity levels as you weigh so much less now than you did?

Thanks, @dreadmoose!

My diet might be a little different than some others. Basically, I decided what weight I wanted to be, figured out the maintenance calories for that weight (2000 is what I came up with, though I realize now that may be a little low), then started eating that many calories per day. It was tough at the beginning but over the first month or two I was able to define a new eating routine that worked for me within the 2000 calorie limit.. I have also increased my activity level but it is still nothing crazy, mainly 30 minutes per day walking at a fast pace.

Sorry, this is probably more information than you wanted but it's worked well for me and I believe that it's sustainable. Honestly, it has been much easier than I thought it would be, so now I wish I had done this years ago!

That was exactly what I was asking about, thanks for sharing! I did the same last year but had to adjust another 200 calories down to keep the weight loss going near the end. 2000 would be a hard deficit, great work keeping it up! I also added walking in to my daily routine but have fallen off that a bit lately as I switch to maintenance and trying to gain some muscle instead.

You're inspiring, keep it up!

I haven't chimed in in a while. Went on vacation in June and went backwards. July was basically a draw. Busted my butt in August and finally nudged the scale back down again. I can tell I'm stronger now but I'm really disappointed with the speed of my weightloss at this point.  My initial goal for the year was 5 lbs a month and I'm far below that. I'm 4 lbs above a "normal" bmi and 24 lbs above my "I'll reevaluate my goal when I get there" goal, and 34 lbs over my "pie in the sky what I think I'd really like to weigh" goal.

That sucks. I'm in the same boat and have basically declared this the summer of "Well, at least I didn't gain weight". Not sure what I need to do to get back on track, but thought I'd leave this here:

Oh man!  That was perfect since I've got work happy hour/dinner tomorrow and then 5 days of out of town wedding/family reunion. I've done great so far in September! I don't expect the train to derail until the 5th!

Iíve been sick on-off for the last few weeks (including tonsillitis for the last week). Iím assuming thatís why Iíve lost that weight when I really havenít been trying (that and Iíd put on a bit prior to then).

New number on the scale.   Don't know how long it'll hang around considered that I finished an entire bag of chocolate truffles in the last 2 days.  But I'm enjoying it for now.

No longer sick and now trying to eat better. A bit strange that I managed to lose 3-4kg in three weeks without trying last month, but I'm assuming that's the whole 'being sick' thing. I plateaued/gained a bit over winter so now it's spring it's time to work on it.

Haven't been on the bike for a few weeks as a result. That may change tomorrow.

One pair of trousers that were too tight in January are now slightly too loose. Most of the weight seems to have gone from my thighs/arse and not so much from the waist.

For those who wear wedding rings and who have lost significant weight -- how did you handle your ring getting loose?   

I'm worried that one day soon my rings will just fall off. I love wearing them but might have to stop until I stabilize... and that might not be for a year or two.

I'm not married, but you could wear it on a chain around your neck and get some cheap silicone rings to wear as a placeholder until you're ready to get it refitted.  I think they also sell little things that wrap around the ring to make it tighter, but that might be uncomfortable long term.

This has happened to me, I can't wear my wedding ring anymore and have also shrunk below one set of silicon rings.

My plan is to wait until I'm a year stable and then get my initial ring re-sized (I get one free resize). If I shrink / grow beyond that it's sell the original and get something much cheaper than I did in the first place (pre-MMM and still 'only' $500... those last 2 words hurt to say post-MMM turnaround).

I am not that attached to my wedding band, to me it's a symbol of my marriage so a new metal one, or the $2 silicon one I replaced it with for now means the same thing to me.

Monthly update for September:

11/26/2017     253.4
12/31/2017     242.6
01/31/2018     234.8
02/28/2018     224.8
03/31/2018     220.0
04/29/2018     214.4

06/30/2018     206.2
07/28/2018     201.6      27.4% BF
08/31/2018     193.8      25.7% BF
09/29/2018     191.2      25.1% BF

September started with an overseas business trip during which it was more difficult to maintain my routine, and I was generally more sloppy with my diet during the rest of the month. So only 2.6 pounds lost, but it's still progress and I will try to re-commit myself in October.

Shockingly, I've got a positive update to share! :-) I've lost about four pounds in September. I typically struggle when I travel for work - the jet lag, the social events/drinking, disruption to my working out/sleeping schedule, and general fatigue when I return. However, this time, due to some stomach issues I'm trying to resolve, I've been avoiding dairy, as well as training for a half marathon. My half marathon training as been admittedly half assed, but I have been running more than usual.   

We're heading to Hawaii around Thanksgiving, so I'd like to lose another four pounds. I need to up my strength training, continue with my diet changes, and keep up the running. After the half is done, I'd like to focus on the 3-5 mile run, consistently being able to run with no walking, even on hilly terrain

Feb 12:  174
March 4: 173.2
April 1:  169.5
May 1: 168.5
June 1: 166
Sept 1: 164

Oct 1: 158 (ish, realistically. Scale read a bit lower but I don't believe it.)

This is a process of just recommitting over and over again. A long slog.

Monthly update for October:

11/26/2017     253.4
12/31/2017     242.6
01/31/2018     234.8
02/28/2018     224.8
03/31/2018     220.0
04/29/2018     214.4
05/31/2018     209.4
06/30/2018     206.2
07/28/2018     201.6      27.4% BF
08/31/2018     193.8      25.7% BF
09/29/2018     191.2      25.1% BF
10/31/2018     187.6      24.3% BF

With just two months left in 2018, I may fall a little short of my revised goal of 180 by the end of the year, but considering that my original stretch goal was 200, I can't be too upset about that. Onward and downward!

WOW. That is some consistent progress there. Congratulations!

I haven’t lost much weight unfortunately. It’s due to diet, and not being as careful as I should be with what I’m eating. That said, I am making better choices, am maintaining my weight on the scale, and appear to be recomping a bit. My abs are more visible now and I am gaining some more visible muscle. I’m eating more fruits and upping my protein and starting to snack less. So I’m making slight progress, just not on the scale.

I've been slacking off so a 200g gain isn't so bad.

Considering the Thanksgiving holiday, I'm very happy with 1.6 pounds lost this month. I have also increased my exercise, so hopefully I'm trading some fat for muscle as well.
