I dropped 45 lbs a year and a half ago, it all comes down to a simple equation, calories in vs calories out....what worked for me won't necessarily work for anyone else, but I got myself a fitbit type tracker that motivated me to move more and get out of my chair at work more often, I started walking right after dinner and tried to get in at least a mile or two, I started with the elliptical at my complex gym, after talking to my friend who is a gym rat, she suggested lower resistance for longer spans, I got up to an hour and held that for 4-6 days a week depending on my schedule, that and cutting back on booze and eating got me down 30+lbs between september and february, I started getting bored so my next step was a fitbody bootcamp, I was close to the weight I wanted but needed to feel better and needed more motivation, I try to get to class which will kick my aSS like nobody's business between 3-5 days a week, I dropped another 20lbs, and my stamina and strength are way up. I did put back about 7 lbs but everyone said I had gone to far and I am holding my weight for close to a year so I am happy.

If it's not water or morning g coffee. Don't drink it. Besides unsweetened tea.

If you used to workout than you have an advantage. Muscle memory is a great thing. Get started back at it and you're going to see gains and losses faster than the average guy.

I've been back at it a few months. No weight change. But a definite difference.

I'll start to ramp up the training soon, been sick a week now.

What's not okay about a 10 cal or less energy drink vs a cup of coffee? Serious question, not arguing with you.

It's all good. I used to kill the energy drinks. Now with heart issues I can't. So that there will give ya hint that they're bad. Not that they caused my issues.

The ingredients in the energy drinks really. Excessive amounts of good things become harmful.

Coffee only has caffeine. The energy drinks are loaded with Excessive Amounts of B Vitamins. ...High Levels of Taurine. ...Ginseng, Gingko Biloba, and Guarana. ...Sugar and Sugar Substitutes. ... and Caffeine.

Sugar substitutes are chemical cocktails. You're better off having real sugar in moderate amounts.

Never thought about sugar substitutes like that. I have a bad Orange Rockstar Recovery addiction. Sometimes five a day. Coffee doesn't agree with me though so it's been tough to kick. Something about coffee makes me agitated. Thanks for the knowledge. I'll keep it in mind when I'm buying my drinks in the morning and leave...at least one on the shelf. 😁 Maybe I should just take caffeine pills.

How's it going? Still losing?

One thing ya have to do is once in a while. Over a week apart. Eat a really shitty meal. Mine is country fried steak, country gravy 4 eggs over easy extra cup of gravy and a biscuit or two.

It keeps me sane.

Because today was

2 whole eggs and 3 egg whites made into an omelet with 1oz low fat cheese. Half for breakfast the other half at 9 am break.

8oz chicken breast

10oz chicken breast, onions, peppers, sour cream and hot sauce on a low carb wrap.

I missed 2 snacks. Was a busy day.

Today was a low carb day.
