Ian- did you watch Arthur's transformation yet? I can't believe that you didn't say anything about it.

Robin it left me speechless. That guy is practically a new person after 10 months, even doing that handstand yoga and running. It makes me ashamed that I can't even reach 500 calories of exercise a day. I didn't comment about it earlier as I got caught up watching a whole bunch of random DDP videos after that, curse youtube and that "recommended" section on the right.

Goals:
1: Drink only 1 Diet Dew a day--yes, no
2: Don't stress about it, you'll know when you know--yes, not so much of a good day
3: Exercise when I can--no, not yet


Thanks for the well wishes. I'm still waiting to hear back from the doctors. It'll probably take about a week to find out the results. It's just frustrating waiting....

Just joined, Day 1.

Not sure where to start, but I guess joining here is the first step. Hardest part about this will be going it alone - in the past (I dropped weight about 12 years ago) I've had a group that I was a part of. This time will try w/out a group (I don't really want to spend the $$$ for a program or join a special gym).

And so it begins....

Thanks, that is what I was hoping. Since I won't have a local group to be accountable to, keep me honest, kick me in the behind, etc. - I felt like I needed to find an online "substitute". It will be a pretty long journey - I have about 100lbs that I'd like to shed.

I am hoping this group will be the place I can "connect with" to get started in the right direction. If I can change some bad habits (or get rid of them entirely) and create some new good habits over the next 30-60 days, I am hoping that gives me the momentum I need to stay with it.

Hey there, Dad! Welcome aboard! Yep, I think you've found your support group! We may not "kick you in the behind" but Mike does wield a mean hammer...

Speaking of Mike, he's off to a grand start for the week!

Thanks for the translation, Ian! ありがとうございます!

I echo what Robin said regarding those with health challenges. Do what you can and take care of yourself. Great job on your week so far, Robin!

Goals for the Week:
  • Log everything, no exceptions (nibbles and "tastes" count!): yes, yes
  • Maintain adequate daily hydration: yes, yes
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average between 1200-1550 calories: 1303, 1361
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average between 800-1300mg sodium: 940, 859
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average of at least 16g fiber: 12, 13
  • Maintain a 7-day rolling average of at least 30g protein: 39, 37
  • Some sort of physical activity 4x during the week: Mon=nothing, Tues=Taiko ...(1/4)
  • Study every day: yes, yes

Even though I never set it up in my goals list (so you folks weren't aware of it), I've been doing bicep and tricep work daily since the beginning of May. I figured it would be a big help with the taiko and as well as with the yoga. Additionally, it *might* help me avoid (or at least minimize) the dreaded batwings after I get down to my hoped-for weight/body-size. So I've been diligently doing 3 mini-workouts, 3 sets of 10 each. Last week, those mini-workouts fell by the wayside along with so many other things. I resumed yesterday and oooooooo this morning I can really feel it in my shoulders blades and back! Oddly enough, the bi-and triceps feel fine.

Hey, Mike, can I claim the 3 workouts, 3 sets by as my 3-fer?
