Cholesterol under 250 mg per dayno, yes
Lift weights 3 days lifted tues

Lose at least 2lbs we'll see...
I ate way too much on Monday. I went to a buffet with my family and although I got small portions the meal just got out of control. In the end it made me want to be healthy even more. I didn't want to throw in the towel. I logged in all the stuff I ate and resolved to do better.
I'm going out with my wife for our anniversary in about 10 days so I want to make some solid progress so can justify eating more.
It very encouraging to hear about everyone progress.
Early March 2013 - 355lbs
April 1st 2013 - 335lbs
Maintain 7-day calorie rolling average under 1550 (day/7-day average): 1466/1566, 1299/1556
Maintain 7-day sodium rolling average under 1500mg (day/7-day average): 1172/1245, 1521/1327
Study every day: yes, yes
I need a few more lower calorie days to bring that 7-day average comfortably under 1550. Definitely doable. Tuesday was a bit high on sodium (and I know why), but other than that, we're rolling along. Happy Wednesday, everyone!

UGH totalled my food yesterday and carbs were 175. Hmm only 10 over my allotment though--45 per meal and 15 for two snacks. It just looks like a lot! Broccoli 6 and carrots 12. I always forget to add in milk too. Calories for the day were 1250.
1) Clear / "Good" Liquids - 3L a day. Monday, Tuesday
2) Cut out dairy - only greek yogurt and milk in tea – NO CHEESE!!! -Monday, Tuesday
3) Running a week without added sugar. No sugar in drinks, no sugary sweets, no sugary deserts. Monday, Tuesday
4) Try at least 3 new recipes this week - Tuesday - I attempted Kimchi (korean spicy cabbage salad). Apparently....not terrible...but not the way I like it at the resturants haha.
5) Try some form of new exercise - Oh GAWD Jazzersize is not my thing. Most awkward hour of my life. Call me crazy but Im going to go back to lifting heavy stuff haha
All in all....feeling ok. I had a minor too-many-nuts mishap yesterday, but meh!
Happy Wednesday, everyone! Lots of good progress reported. Despite most of us having a weak moment (or two or three), we're moving in the right direction.
Hope - take care of yourself.

Good for you for not letting one slip-up throw you off track. Just keep that goal of being healthy for yourself and your family in mind.
