Calling all FAT members

Is anybody still here? Will anybody see this?

I'm putting out the call. Hoping some will answer...


Five Phases

Gonna simplify it a little. Five 10-pound phases on my way to 50 pounds.

So, 316.2 was my new starting point. Phase one ends at 306.2, Phase 2 at 296.2...and so on, until I hit my end goal of 266.2. So, I'm 20% of the way to my Phase One goal...for what that's worth.



Day 2

Yesterday, the worst thing I ate was a handful of animal crackers when I got home from work. While I'm there, I try to spend more time walking the floor than I do spinning cameras, just so I can get a little activity.

I have a gym membership, but I still can't get over that intimidation factor, so I don't take advantage of it.

Weight: 315.2
Down 1.0 pounds


Day 1...Again.

Let's just get this out of the way. Daily weights to be posted. Ugh.



Time to go Back to the Basics

Been a long time since I've posted here, huh? I won't bore you with the details, but I'll just say that I've kept my yo-yo dieting streak intact, much to my dismay. I do great, get lazy, gain weight, start over...

Consider this the latest "start over" phase.

Last May I dropped to 278.6. Tomorrow, I assume I'm going to weight right about 315. Yeah, 315. And I'm ashamed to post that publicly. But I also know that putting my struggles and wins out there was a huge motivation for me when I went from 366 to 270. So, I'm back, feeling sick about who I've let myself become again.

Let's see what I can do this time around.



Operation: San Juan.

How My Weight Loss Looks

First, please feel free to join my Facebook page HERE.

Now, here's how things have looked for me over the last two months, or so:

July 2011: Weighed in as high as 316.2
August 2011: Tried to recover, ended up hovering around 309
September 2011: Not much change. Lost a pound or two through zero effort
October 1, 2011: Weighed 307.2. Rebooted my weight loss
October 22, 2011: Weighed 296.6. My lowest in well over a year

It really has been a great October. It's all about my food intake. I haven't had more than 2-3 cheat meals in three weeks. I've re-inserted whole grains, and removed simple carbs. I stop eating at 8pm, unless I'm working until 10. A little dairy, but not much. Snacks are now 1/2 a PB sandwich, or a snack pack of jerky, and not candy bars or a donut. I've had a lot of water, too.

I don't want to say it's been simple, but I will say that it hasn't been much work. Next goal is 289.8.

I'm already wearing a pair of my 38 jeans, again. It feels good...
