Here I Go......Day 1 and it SUCKS

So, I am 5'11......ish (5'10 after the back surgery) and 200 lbs of solid Fuscle.......Fat Muscle - The OL has packed on a few too and we both know we could do better - We laugh and say 'We Are Happy, Who Cares, Pass the Dorittos" and laugh - Well, she ran into an ex-coworker at a Retirement party this past weekend who dropped over 50 lbs by just eating better and cutting out Carbs - You see where this is going.........fuck me.......Carbs are in EVERYTHING - We have a 14 yr old and a 12 yr old which means we have a closet full of snacks or as I call it, "Freshman Dorm Room Stoner Food" and I SWEAR the damn cabinet speaks to me

If you hear in the news about a "Chicago Man who took a long ride off a short Pier" its cuz I miss my Snacks

This sucks..........FUCK IT........I'm getting Lypo

Hang in there, Brother.
If you need to lose some pounds just cut back on the intake and do a little exercising.
Taking a nightly walk with the Mrs. after dinner may help you both.

Yeah, I do go to the Health Club a few times a week for Cardio and Stretching (still fighting back issues and will for life) but that does nothing when I come home after and knock back a Bacon Dbl Cheeseburger and wash it down with Cheesy Tots.........mmmmmmmm, Cheesy Tots

We did walk around the hood a bit after dinner but now with the Kids back in school, post dinner is Homework Time........which I do not understand AT ALL

You can do it. IMO, mind over matter and getting thru the first couple weeks is key. March 15, 2018 I was in same (worse) shape -- 5'11" and 220-225#. I'd been thinking for a long time how crappy I felt and how much processed food I ate (and loved) -- pizza, chips, more chips and pizza, pasta, beer/gin, etc. And lots of it. A 4 day stomach flu pushed me over the edge and I decided to give an honest effort to eat better. I didn't follow a "diet" but committed to not eating all things processed. I quit those things cold turkey and went to meats, fruits, vegetables, nuts, eggs. Little to no carbs or dairy. Probably a combination of Paleo and Keto but not really following either program. I cut out the big meals and eat a lot more snacks. I also cut out the booze. Unfortunately, I haven't yet mixed in any exercise. My OL says that's next. Today I'm at about 165 and feel so much better! My friends think I've lost my mind (they miss my gin & tonics) but playing with the kids in the yard, climbing a flight of stairs, putting on my boots are no longer torture. I do miss alot of those foods, but I feel so much better that (for now) I can do without.

Give it a shot!

Go for it, Eddie! My fat ass will be sitting here in the cheap seats with my bourbon and cigars cheering you on!

But my day is coming - the wife says our program starts after our October vacation.

Some folks seek the comfort of the straight and narrow. Me? I prefer the twisted road.

I did this back in the spring. Cut out sugar and almost all carbs. The first 2 days sucked, headaches and tired. After that, all was good. I slept much better, had more energy, and best of all, my pants fit again after about 2 weeks. I cheated on the weekends though, but not in excess amounts. Coupled with exercise, I lost 11-12 lbs, all in the gut, in about 2 weeks. I have always lifted weights 4-5 times a week, and I kept that going during the diet too, so that helped some. I plataued at about 190lbs, and couldn't lose any more.
