Just to post a quick update on my own progress, I've lost another pound this morning. That puts me at 311, and a total loss of 47 pounds. This is the most weight I've ever lost in my life.

I lost a good 40 pounds back in high school, but I'm actually still heavier NOW, even after 47 pounds, than I was when I started back then, which was 280. That's pretty depressing.
I've just got to take it one pound at a time. I'll get there.

You're doing great--I truly think that a more or less gradual loss is the way to go, rather than super-low caling it and starving yourself (as I've done in the past). Keep it up and we'll be celebrating your moving down to the next "Century" in a few weeks!

Regards,
Michael

Boy, I wan to hit it harder next week but my trainer said I should eat the 1500 and back off the exercise next week. That seems wrong. Comments?
Spent the last 4 days eating around 1500 - 2000 calories and doing light garden work with no extra exercise. Lost 2 pounds in 4 days. Who would have guessed?

Yup, sometimes there's just no rhyme or reason to it. That's why it is the weekly/monthly average that I think is most important. My weight swings up and down but the trend is always down so I don't worry about it (and continue to try to only weigh once a week at most).

Congrats on the two pounds, BTW!

Regards,
Michael

Thanks Bubbs, and everyone again for your support and welcoming me back.


Today I did really well with my diet, I also realized that counting my calories is something I should do at the very end of my day. I counted just now at 9pm and I've eatten under 1000 cal today and I'm not hungry at all. For some reason when I keep constant track I usually struggle to stay under my 1300 limit. So I'm going to keep doing it at the end of my day and see if it works for me. Over the last month i've eatten mostly low carb and 100% unprocessed foods, also no added sugar and barely any grain products. I think thats how I managed not to gain weight while I wasn't exercising (not even a little bit of walking) . Still kind of physically lazy from being depressed, so I still haven't been working out. It just keeps slipping to the bottom of my priorities even though it should be at the top. Will exercise tomorrow for sure to get myself back into the routine. I expect to have a pretty good loss when I first start exercising again. Anyways just wanted to post about today, and will post almost everyday again to keep myself focused. Maybe will help other people to.

Good for you Misery.

As we live and change we need to continually assess what works for us. I find once I get a pattern, it suddenly doesn't work anymore as our bodies adapt (just like weight training) we need to adjust regularly.

With regards to logging your food at the end of the day. Give it a try, but be careful. I found that I when I logged at the end of the day that I would some times underestimate and would be less than 1000 cal for the day and trying to make healthy choices to keep it in the 1000-1300 range late at night (not a good habit for me).

With regards to the exercise, take it one day at a time. You did great before. You took a holiday and now you are BACK!

Good luck...keep the course.
