Problem is some folks can really screw up a Monday- Friday good pattern with a bad weekend of eating and drinking. There are studies now saying you should look at the weekly total calories instead of daily. A 12 pack of beer on a Saturday night can really set you back. Add in a couple gluttonous meals and a large blizzard and you are screwed!!

No one can run that much!

I haven't had 12 beers on a Saturday since college. Last time I tried to eat a large Blizzard I puked. I share a small now...

Point being it is a lifestyle change keeping the big picture in mind.

I'm kind of enjoying the Mediterranean diet. I'm down to 224 so definitely trending the right way!

Not counting calories or anything but down 11bs in a few weeks.

Baked fish, fruits and veggies seems to work.

Keep on keeping on! That's great progress! Good thing about that program is portions sizes are not as big a factor. Typically you get full or satisfied fairly quickly.

Be careful with eating too much fruit...it can spike your sugar. My dad almost turned diabetic due to eating so much fruit. He never eats desserts. Very rarely. Doctor found out it was all the fruit. He was using it to feel full all day...snack on fruit instead of junk.

Spent a week on the road for work. Thought I kind of blew the diet. Easy to do when traveling. I tried to be mindful but you know dinner with clients and such...

Checked the scale this AM. 222#. So lost a pound that week.

So I am down 13lbs in about a month...My belt does not fit anymore, and thats a shame bcs my pants are loose now so thats good.

Had someone at work who I dont see often come up and ask me how much weight I had lost...And I had not told her I was working on that. That was nice.

Keeping up with the "Mediterranean" diet is not too hard and seems effective! Lots of fish and veggies. Good times!

Most important thing to do with dieting is to find out what works for you.

1. Pick a diet that you can stick to for the long haul.
2. Find the diet that achieves your personal goals. What works for your best friend, may not work for you. Try this, that and the other until you get it right.

I tried 6 different diets before I started fasting/low carb. Only one of them took some weight off (basically chicken & veggies every meal). I lost 10 lbs in the first 4 weeks but the next 6 weeks, I didn't lose an ounce.

Just a quick update.

Holding strong on the diet again not doing anything tricky just using a lot of common sense.

Down to 219. So in 35 days down 16lbs.

210 is what the Doc. Suggested. But I would be really happy if I got to 200. At that point I would almost have abs again LOL.

Just plugging away... lots of baked fish, veggies, very limited "junk". No red meat. Nothing fried. No sugary dishes or snacks.

Congrats on the progress. Don't worry about the "number" your Doc presents to you. 9 out of 10 times they are going off the BMI charts which are archaic and only still in play due to insurance companies.
Your inch loss will be the best determining factor AND how you feel. Your body has a 'set point' that it functions most efficiently at and once it has been reached it will be challenging to drop below that without feeling like something is off.

Wow, you're doing great, bro. Keep it up! I gotta get back at it, myself. If you keep plugging, it's gonna help me get back into the swing of things. I lost 30lbs last year, but exercise went to a standstill with my injury and holiday eating put me back in the hole by 9lbs. Time to do this and get widdit! Keep posting, haven't been over at this site in awhile....too busy trying to stay up with the OT barf

Got my free cholesterol screening at Kroger this morning. Great results I'm down to 195 overall with a very good LDL HDL ratio.

Weight wise I'm down to 215. So 20lbs down in about 7 weeks! And a 79 point drop in overall cholesterol.

Baked salmon, fresh veggies and chicken breast has been working. Cutting out red meat and processed foods I think helped a lot as well. 15 lbs to go!

I will say this Fella's if I can do it anyone can. And you don't have to totally deprive yourself and it doesn't have to take a long time to see significant changes! With the exception of my grandfather who live to a hundred all the males in my family have pretty much died in their late fifties early sixties. I want to make sure I live to get Social Security LOL
