My Weight Issue

forty years ago I hadda eat three pounds of bananas and get back on the scales to be a half pound above the minimum required to enter the Navy ..

By the end of boot camp I went from 145 to 160 .. I stayed there for mebbe eight years or so ..

All I know is in 1981 when I left shore duty I still had a 32" waist , between 81-86 I shot to 206 , and fought that for years ..

I have to get a physical every two years for my job , and in 2010 I had shot up to 254 , the doctor hadda cow and I did too .. he put me on a heart patients diet ( honor system , wasn't watching over me ) and I lost 25 pounds in about six weeks , but then started cheating a bit here and there , and have hung around 225-230 ever since ..

I am comfortable here at 6'0" or so , but I got a let it go away for me , and no body else .

What got me back on it , is I check my weight three or four times a week , and a couple weeks ago I was up to 237 ..

So I started back again on weight loss , in two weeks I am down to 227 ( last night ) ..

I can do it and you can too , set your mind to it and it can be done

anyways , my goal is :

50 in 50

50 pounds 50 weeks , next physical is late May/early June 2014

that's a total of one pound per week or get this , a smidge over two ounces a day

Good luck my friend. I'll subscribe and see if we can go pound for pound. I'm 6'1" and 240lbs....all in the spare tire area! Diet only don't work for me and I hate exercise. Last summer started cycling (bicycle) with my son and got down to 214 and felt pretty good (he kicks my ass!).

Cycling really interfered with my biking!! Nice evening out after work, do I fire up the Harley or clip on the pedals. First bicycle ride was tonight just before I read this post. I figure if I have to exercise it might as well be two wheels!

I was eating healthy and working out pretty hard and not having much luck. I got myfitnesspal on my phone and it really helped me watch my calories. I switched to more circuit training and a modifoed crossfit kind of program. I had the same goal as you. Except I'm only 5'9cI went from 235 to 185 at a lb per week. Stayed steady for about 3 months now. Its kind of nice to have a six pack at 49 again. It sure hasn't hurt things with the wife either!

I give you guys a lot of credit. I am 6'1" and my perfect body weight is 250 at 8% body fat. Now I am 315. Still alot of muscle but I got this beer belly that's killing me. I only drink once a week but I have recognized that I am a stress eater and when I get really pissed off I am headed for bad food decisions. Turning 42 in august and need to cut some weight. I used to watch my diet with fighting and just looking good at the beach for so long that now I am burnt out. I just can't seem to get a handle on this food thing. I am ready to do a cycle of Winstrol LOL I know that will peal the weight off.

You can do it , its all in your mind , you just have to decide you are going to do it and go through with it ..

10 years ago I lost twenty pounds in six weeks , just changing my eating habits .. But I was bad about cheating after I lost a certain amount of weight ..

I used to love sweet tea and coffee with some ( not much ) sugar or fake sugar in it .. I finally figured out in the last three years that the sweet tea craving was for the sugar and same for the coffee .. I used to drink coffee all day long , but now it's one or two cups of black . And I don't drink sweet tea anymore ..

Almost all of my fluid intake is water or an energy drink like Gatorade ..

I was bad about fixing a plate of food , then going back for "just a little" more .. Over a week or two that "just a little more" is probably another weeks worth of food ..

Good Luck

Good luck JTB. Wanna see you succeed! Ref we need to talk. Built exactly the same. We may need to go on diet and start a wager!

Just keep in mind that Gatorade has a lot of sugar in it as well. It is fine if you are burning a lot as it was designed as a replenishment. I usually cut it 50/50 with water for when I am going on my longer runs. I try not to drink it unless I have been working out and sweating a lot. Staying with plain water has been my best change. Still working towards cutting the coffee thing back though. Triple shot espresso with 2 sugars(used to be 3) every morning.
