I just ate four waffles for second breakfast.

I feel like such a failure.

Quitting booze and drugs was different.

You need to eat so there can't be total abstinence.

still stuck at 225.... need to get to work...

That's exactly where I am. I recently added swimming to my repertoire. It feels like a great workout. I'm hoping that it along with paying more attention to what I eat shakes things up enough to get me moving in the right direction again.

Congrats to everyone who is doing so well.

Beer is my problem, I stop too often for a couple on the way home, then I'm starving so I eat a cheeseburger or pizza..

Yeah, me too. My poison, in trying not to drink beer is whiskey. Trouble is, if I have just a little too much, I pretty much pass out. :rolleyes:

I chose a Reuben instead.  The food pic thread called to me.  This morning it's slow-cooker oatmeal with dried apples, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.  It's like having apple pie for breakfast, but way better for you.

Similar stuff here.  I never liked oatmeal as a kid.  Now, it's breakfast 5 days a week and loving it.

I had to establish a new goal for myself this weekend. I think because my original goal was to get under 200 I am not trying as hard since I have been 197ish now for a while. So that being said my new goal is 188 lbs.  That is a solid 10 lbs off from my current weight and I think is totally doable.  :bigok:

Wife wants to change her goal as well but I think she is at a weight right now that works for her (works for me  ;) ).  Shes thinking 105 but I am thinking 110 with the current weight training left in tact is a better option. What ever floats her boat.  ;D

The wife is back in the gym!  She says she can't weigh more than me after I get to goal of 150.  Actually, I'm glad, as she felt better running on the treadmill 3-4 days a week.  She can outrun me even now.   :wings:

So this past year has been more about 'stop gaining' than losing weight. Finally have figured out how to motivate myself to lose weight.

I am paying myself for good behavior. The fund will be for new clothes first, then that might change. My first goals are modest. $1 each day to track what I eat (you cannot fix what you cannot measure) and $1 each day if I exercise.

It's amazing how I just plain lie to myself about what and how much I eat.  :o

Now the plan is to add more things each day to earn my dollar. Not sure what I'm going to add just yet - I'm analyzing last week's data. I am also walking with other women at lunch time 3 times a week (in addition to working out each morning 4 days a week) and that is making a difference. Right now it's all about 'not sitting' as opposed to more intensive exercise. First I have to strengthen my arthritic right knee and fix my frozen left shoulder which does involve strengthening some muscles to improve posture (probably the root cause of the frozen shoulder plus some other factors) before I start getting more serious about weight training (the next goal) or any more intensive exercise.

I lost almost 1.5 lbs last week - directionally correct at least.  :bigsmile: It helps me to visualize a pound package of butter (and 2 more sticks) that is no longer on my body.

And congratulations to those who are losing (:wave: Meemuh, giaka)!

Down 11 and somewhat hampered by a strained left hamstring in a yoga incident.   :facepalm:   The lower body stretching is limited at this point, but I can still use the elliptical machine to keep limber.  I've got 160 in my sights for the end of February.

Good job on losing, everyone!  I'm holding steady at 150 lbs.

I had a very interesting revelation about weight loss and healthy eating the other day.  I've heard it before, but it really sank in the other day.  After, of all things, reading the Russell Brand op ed in the Phillip Seymour Hoffman thread, I realized that I too am an addict.  I'm addicted to eating.  I do it mostly when I'm bored, sometimes when I'm upset, but I eat as a way of coping with whatever.  And much like a drug addict, I have my fix - sugar.  I get antsy at night if I don't have dessert, and my brain won't let me idle until I have that fix.  Sadly, unlike a heroin addict or alcoholic, I don't have the luxury of going cold turkey and never touching the stuff again.  I have to eat food to live.  Sucks, eh?  Anyway, after I read that article, I realized that I have a long life of constant vigilance ahead of me.

So to turn this around and make it positive, here's some of my favorite snacks I've discovered that let me nibble and taste good, but don't cost too much in calories:

Carrot sticks and Oasis Zero Fat Black Bean or Lentil dips (really good and filling!)
A cup of berries with butterscotch on them at night (usual dessert; gives me my sugar fix without being crazy)
Clif bar peanut butter chocolate chip bar after a workout - high in protein so really fills me up
Quaker 90 calorie oatmeal raisin granola bars - fairly low cal for granola

I've never had a problem with diet soda - that crap tastes terrible!  :P I drink water, coffee, tea, and…. alcohol.  :bigsmile: If I do drink soda it's the regular kind and only rarely. I treat it like a dessert.

I am a(n) hedonic eater - pure pleasure. What helps when I track my food is that I have to decide if the food or drink is worth it. This is how I've reduced my alcohol consumption. It just isn't worth it on some days.

I've found this to be true on booze. I can't drink more than one drink any more. I'm satisfied after that, unless it's a really nice vintage wine that I won't ever get again.

So, as an obese man, I am curious what the thought are about the BMI?  According to the almighty equation, my "ideal weight" is between 140 and 189 (probably on the higher end of that range due to build).  To me, that seems a bit berserk,  I've always had the number 200 in mind for an end goal (the 240 goal below is a before vacation goal).  Honestly, I can't even imagine how svelte 200 would look...I would suspect that anything less might be a little bit on the "get that guy a sammich"side.  Or am I so used to everyone being a little chunky that my ideals are skewed?  Who is this BMI guy, and who made him the boss?

I thought I'd look like death warmed over if ever I made it to my healthy range. I assure you this is not the case. The BMI has its critics and champions, due to its rather funky model. I think it's the standard that gets used by docs, so right now we use it.

I just got to my max "healthy" BMI (24.9) and trust me, I'm still not thin by any measure you'd care to try.   When I hit goal of 150 pounds, I'll be firmly ensconced in the mid range.  If I were still military, I'd have been put on the weight control program at 165.

For 95% of people it's a good guide.  Most people don't realize just how fat they are.

For the pointy ends of the bell curve it doesn't work. But those people know that already because they put in a ton of work to get to the point that it doesn't apply.

According to the BMI charts I'm overweight. In fact I am currently running around 12-13% body fat.

This was not easy to achieve.

If you know the difference between front and back squats in terms of muscular development, and you know the warm up and 1rm weight for both for you, chances are that the BMI chart does not apply to you. If not, you're probably just underestimating how fat you are.

That sucks to hear but it's likely true. Take it from someone who suffered through the same process of discovery.

Exercise is addicting.   :gdog:   Off to my first class (yoga), followed by a 90 minute session at the college fitness center.  Day three in a row.  Usual routine is 30-45 minutes on an elliptical stepper and the same picking things up and putting them down.  It's not to add mass, but to chisel the blubber off and some of it is damn stubborn. 




The great part?  A bunch of the daily minor aches and pains are disappearing.

as part of the wellness program at work I now have a fitbit. It tracks your activity, calories, water intake, etc. pretty interesting if you take the time to mess with it. hopefully this will get me back on track after being stuck at 225..

here is the fibit site:  http://www.fitbit.com/
the above are merely the ramblings of a hamfisted fuckwit who has broken too many helmets.

I've been wearing a fitbit flex for a few months now. It really does motivate me to do things like park further from the door and take the stairs instead of the elevator. I'm thinking about upgrading to the Force just for the altimeter. It counts stairs as well as steps.

Gotta go do my official monthly weigh-in today at WeightWatchers to keep my Lifetime status.  Scale at home says I lost 3 lbs since last month.  Dunno how that happened.  Haven't been doing anything to lose.
