Weekly weigh-in. Only one pound down this week, but that's not unexpected. Ate out a couple of times (one an all-you-can-eat buffet ) but tried to be as healthy as possible. Also, drank way too much beer, which is not good. So, taking it in stride, I will do better this week. Stay healthy everyone!

Hey, well, I had a whole long missive typed out and the forum crashed

I'll just say that I'm finding 1500 very comfortable if I choose my food wisely. This isn't my first time at the weight loss rodeo, but is probably the first time I am committed to doing it in a healthy and sane manner.

That time again--this weeks weigh-in shows 380 lbs. even--down 3.5 lbs. for the week :-) It should have been 4.5 lbs. but I've been pretty consistantly going 50 to 100 cals over my 1500 limit this week. I know when I get back to work and a consistant structured schedule it will be easier--having the summer off is like having 10 weeks of weekends!

Stay safe and healthy everyone!

Regards,
Michael

5.5 down this week! Looks like the exercise off-set the beer (which I'm trying to avoid--the beer, that is ;-)

So, today's weight is 370 exactly

Another 5.5 lbs down this week, so 364.5 lbs.--amazing considering the 8 pack of Guinness and a trip to the Mexican restaurant I did last weekend. I have been more active, so that helps and drinking lots of water due to the heat--perhaps I'm sweating the weight off?!
