Don't always focus on just the number on the scale!

Here here


weight hasn't been coming off much, but waist is getting smaller and muscles are getting stronger.

My new favorite is meeting / working with someone i haven't in awhile and having them walk right by me, or look at me and not even realize it's me.
You've lost 160! Great job!

Was no secret, and when i tell them what i've done I get, "it's too hard" or "I can never do that" etc. I'm trying to motivate others.



Bought a shirt and pants last weekend, This time last year I was in XXXL or XXXXL, just bought Large.
Never EVER thought i would be this small, it's awesometastic.
Without reading all the way back, what have you been doing? It's about time for me to start getting after my weight. I've been bouncing 245-250 for the past several years. This year I wanted to get after it but between several personal issues, I never did. Now it's time to at least start getting more serious.

I find that if I go up north for a weekend and cut wood, walk, etc, I drop 3-5 pounds by the middle of the following week. So it's obvious that I'm a slacker when it comes to exercise.

I just had my annual physical and a heart scan and other than being overweight, I am fine. So there is no excuse.

Diet, diet diet. I'd dropped 50# before starting exercise.

I'm using an app on my phone that I put in my goal weight and it adjusts my calorie needs based on current weight vs that. And been aiming for low carb intake.

I'm currently at or under 1700 cal/day and I try to keep my carb intake around 100grams/day. Being diabetic I have to have limited sugar and simple carbs anyway.

I normally will also bike for 30 - 90 min/day, failing that will do time on the elliptical etc, unless I'm working stupid hours.


Looking at what I used to take in I was probably eating 3000 - 4000 cal/ day and could have easily been at 400+ grams of carbs, some days even more I'd bet, I love bread.

Do it!

I'm in the process of buying new jeans, was in 36s last winter, now i am wearing insulated under ware under 34s and I still need a belt. Have not weighed myself in ~2 months, when the doc said i was down 10-12lbs from 4 months prior. I am eating more regularly, between 4 and 6 smaller meals a day. One mile walk at lunch on nice weather days.

With all the physical labor i've been doing, my arms and core are noticeably stronger, and I probably have lost 4-6" off my midsection. All with not spending a single day in the gym.

Well I managed to go without my mid morning snack today. That's step one.

My doc called me last night to give me the official report on my heart CT scan. I scored an 8 which means I have virtually zero plaque in/around my heart. I've been pretty concerned about this one since I have been overweight for years. He said this puts me in the bottom 10% for plaque risk.

I started a weigh loss challenge at work with my program manager. We are doing a one on one weight loss challenge through Dec 20th and I am currently down 13 lbs after 3 weeks and thats all diet and no exercise. I should be under 300lbs here in the next week or so. My first goal is to get back to how much I weighed before I fell off the band wagon which was 266lbs. After that I am going to re asses and see where I want to be at.

You can do anything with motivation and hard work. You got this. 98% mental and 2% physical. You can come work out with me, if you could keep up.
