You guys are the best thanks so much!

I feel like I should go lose 10 pounds or something to show my gratitude.

I'm behind, so I send another $50 to EJAutism for RJR. A twofer!

Sam, I'm fascinated by the graph and your two-meal observation. Overall trend is looking good...

Prosp, based on the photo of you on the EJ site you look pretty healthy (and I got passed riding uphill by plenty of tubbier-looking guys yesterday).

I thought it might be fun to post a "Total Donations Made" at the end of the challenge. If you like, you can fill in this Google Forms survey. No user's information is tracked, though I did ask for forum usernames. Feel free to put Anonymous if you prefer.

Nine weeks remaining, and 9 lbs to go. Tubby and annihilation remain neck and neck. At least I've got clear and present motivation? I can finally see some visual progress, which is also pretty fucking nice. Recently, though my give a damn has been at nadir. I half broke my hand a few days ago, and my ship is broke-as-fuuuuuck right at the end of the fiscal year. Seems like face planting into a vat of chips would probably solve all my woes. And yet, a vat of chips cannot be tolerated. Alas.

15 pounds! You are well over half-way there! You can totally do this. I hope your ship gets un-fucked, and please don't fall into a vat of chips. Can you repost the google tracking form? I'll do $20 here to GiveDirectly!

Congrats, Sam, you're doing great!  Hope your hand is okay and that the visual progress helps motivate you.  I saw a recent photo of myself where I looked pretty-okay and that's keeping my face out of the giant bag of chips in our cupboard.

Chips = baaad idea. Go for celery.

Actually, go for a bike ride. Unless you're on a boat. That would be tricky.

I'm officially on the struggle bus. We moved back onto the ship, but the galley is still closed. That means no place to cook, no reefers to keep food, and over all suckitude with heavy reliance on restaurants. I don't think I've gained, but I'm certainly not losing. Words of encouragement welcome. As are ideas for non-cooking, shelf-stable meals around 400kcal each.

Here's a link to some other threads on the topic of bringing along and eating meals from a hotel room. Lots of good suggestions here.

https://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/ask-a-mustachian/make-healthy-dinner-in-hotel-room/

Oh - you are doing great! I'm proud of you and looking forward to making my contribution (to the ALS Association) when you meet (crush!) your goals.

Fridgeless salads (veggies + olive oil + vinegar -- veggies can be fresh, like tomatoes or avocadoes, or canned (water chestnuts or baby corn ftw?). Add in some beans from a can if you want some extra beany protein! Or some canned fish or the like.

Canned fruits can also be useful if you don't want to hit up the grocery store every few days for fresh fruit, too. Pears and apples hold well at room temperatures.

Nuts and nut butters. Cheerios.

If you have a small cooler and some ice, you could keep one or two things cold for at least a little while? Break up the monotony and all.

Meal 1) 1/2c large flake oats; 1 scoop protein powder, 1tsp brown sugar; 1 fruit
Meal 2) 2 Wasa light crackers (the big shingle things); 2Tbsp reduced fat peanut butter (it's 80kcal per Tbsp); 1 banana; 3 carrots
Meal 3) 1 can tuna, 1 head lettuce, 1tbsp olive oil; 1 baked potato if you have a microwave or fruit if you don't

All the carrots and cucumber that you can eat!

DIY Cooler Idea*
If you're willing to be weird, then you DO have a perfectly good cooler - the Atlantic! Tie a line to a bucket filled with weights and your food, put a lid on your bucket (or put food into a waterproof bag), toss it overboard, and tie the line to the rail with a threatening note on it. This time of year the US Atlantic coastal sea temperature is too warm to store dairy or meat, but you could keep fruit and veg there.

Okay these things aren't amazing but they are cheap, easy, and low calorie. I had them on many kitchen-less TDYs. Assuming you can at least boil water. I often see some of the flavors in grocery stores around here (Giant, I think, in the "health food" section).

Made my matching donation for this round! 

I'm sorry you've lost your kitchen access.  Why the decision to move aboard when it's not functional yet?

The water temp where Sammy's still-broken ship presently resides is roughly 80*F (26C) right now.  I don't think that's going to do much chilling.

I went to the grocery store, and purchase:

VEGETABLES!
-Lettuce
-Carrots
-Tomatoes

PROTEIN!
-tuna packets
-sardine packets
-peanut butter

CARBS!
-pre-packaged dal & chana masal
-pre-packed soups (in fact, the kind SCUBAstash recommended)
-oatmeal
-Belvita crackers

FAT!
-Dressing

Perpackaged food is fucking expensive. Dang.

So we received a few more donations to www.ridejamesride.com over the course of the long weekend. Thanks to everyone who has boosted us (James is now almost at $4,000 raised!) and especially to the folks on this thread who have made a difference.

We love you all and would give you a big sloppy kiss if you were closer. Which you aren't, so you are safe.

Words of encouragement welcome. As are ideas for non-cooking, shelf-stable meals around 400kcal each.
I sort of remember watching an episode of Rachael Ray where she said she spent a summer in Copenhagen (followed by "don't ask").

She lived on this cucumber greek salad thing.  All veggies that don't really need refrigeration - so cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, peppers, olives.  Feta if you can fridge it, but you could do chickpeas or canned chicken or tuna instead.  Olive oil and vinegar.

Without the ability to cook, it's super tricky.  There are some tips here: (traveling tips)
http://mrspetridish.blogspot.com/2015/07/how-to-travel-with-all-of-your-meals.html

I'd focus on fruits, veg, and proteins.  It's gonna get super boring, but:
apples, bananas, oranges
carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, bagged lettuce if you can eat that stuff, canned/pouched tuna or chicken. 
broccoli, cauliflower pre-cut. Snap peas. 
Do you have access to any grocery store with salad bars?  That expands the options.
granola bars, oats, nuts

When we travel or go camping, we mostly eat shelf-stable things.  It can get boring fast.

Then, maybe 130lbs, if I still have some jiggle. But it IS done. Now I just have to keep it done, which is far less stressful and sword of Damocles-like.

Awesome! *manly congratulatory fist bump*

P2F! I'm in. I think I'll be creative and donate $1 for the first pound, $2 for the second pound, $3 for the third pound, etc. Increasing rewards for increasing achievements :-)

This worked out to be $292.80, by my math/according to your posts, at least one of which is probably slightly wrong, but also probably close enough :-)  Donations made.

159.9 (72.5kg) this morning, on the official scale, in my skivvies. It's done. I did the thing.

Yay!  You did the thing!

Making us do our own math this time around?  I had to go back to check what the deal was... $10/lb?  So I owe James another $90?  Good thing I like those people.



Edit:  Done.  118 CAD ~= 90 USD

Adding to the chorus  of "hurray!"

Congrats!

Also, adding to the $ to RJR -- go James and Prosp!

SS, do you have a plan for, you know, boring old maintenance? Or are you going to continue to go for "loss", as you mentioned, to give yourself some headroom?

Cripes. There was so much sickness at the end, I ceased caring about the total.

If everyone enters their crap into the tracker, I will post the total.

I'm not sure how you track my crap. I rode a bike, coaxed/coached a kid, and rode a ferris wheel.

You guys boosted our fundraising and motivated/"incentived" us to keep on going.

I wish I could account for how much of our fundraising came through Sam's weightloss, but I cannot. It was a big chunk of it though. The measurable on that is shown in kids learning to walk, teens speaking their first words, parents seeing their first night out in years, young adults who are employable rather than dependents, kids who see selfworth rather than depression and substance dependency, and on, and on.

You want to measure something? Put all that into a blender, hit puree, and see what pours out. Now multiply it by the 3,000 kids on Grandview's waitlist. That's what you all have done.

Crap. I mentioned a blender. No one bring up the Vitamix debate. No one!
