My first or second?

My eating habits aren't what I would suggest for the average person trying to lose weight. I have a high strung metabolism and I am a pretty high strung active person (surprise right?)

Greasemonkey and I spoke a little about my eating habits in this thread here:
http://www.greatlakes4x4.com/showthr...light=crossfit

If you want more info let me know. Not saying by any means that my diet is perfect, but I'm still maintaining the 175lbs at about 13% bodyfat. Even after a broken sternum sidelined me for almost 3 months and I wasn't able to do anything other than sit on my ass.

thanks I forgot about that thread. I got to admit a small steak and eggs sounds a lot better than the way Ive been treating myself.
Im very active, but when I wake up and am usally out the door, showered and all, for work in less than 30 mins it limts my options. Im gunna do some good shopping this weekend and see what I can do.

3 eggs, a small steak and a HUGE pile of sautee'd pea pods today. Yummy.

Also I recently decided that carrot, broccoli, onion, bacon omellettes are amazing.

My elliptical workout's are a cardio build, 20 or so minutes of nasty intervals, and then cardio.
Added in weight training a few months back, did upper body today

If my gigantic fatass can do it (and I had said for several years there was no way i'd ever even be close to 300#) then anybody can if you actually try.

Now to get a few more inch's off of the midsection and i'll be a happy camper.
Great job. It feels fantastic doesn't it.
I had the same story. I found out I had diabetes and decided to beat it rather than just take the pills. A diet and exercise plan that you can sustain is so important which is what all of my friends who do the fad diets can't seem to learn. I have so many friends who yo-yo and will actually criticize me for my diet (too many carbs, too liberal, not 140 grams of protein a day, etc). I eat bread, sweets, and even stuff like pizza when I want it as part of a balanced diet. I never binge and I think it's because I never say "I can't have ____". I have a little bit of whatever I want and live by the 90/10 rule where 90 percent of my diet is organic, non gmo, and low calorie and 10% is the other "normal" crap.

Typically I can't eat the same thing twice but for some reason I look forward to that breakfast every morning. It's less than 200 calories and it tides me over until I have a piece of fruit around 10 which keeps me from being ravenous at lunch. I do believe you need to eat to keep your metabolism high. When I was heavier I used to think it was great that I didn't eat breakfast and thought I was saving calories. Now if I skip breakfast I am pretty cranky.
On the weekends I make Mike and I breakfast/brunch. It's more delicious than the fatty stuff we get a restaurants, all organic, truly free range organic eggs, and not high in calories.
Mike's parents are in town so I just made the batter for pancakes tomorrow. I made them with a mix of organic unbleached flour and steel cut oats. I put in organic blueberries, 1 tbsp of organic brown sugar, 1 egg, 1 tsp of organic coconut oil, baking powder, and water. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. :D

Tomorrow is the big day. 34 inch incision, and some loose skin going bye bye!

I've decided I'm going to get a few belts made from the skin.

That's a bit of an insult. I gained about 2 pounds a year. After several years it adds up. It's not like I sat at a table & jumped 30 pounds in a month.

Well, it wasn't meant to be nice. Or a direct insult to anyone.

IN a much nicer way however your post illustrates nearly my exact point. You've stated you are somewhere near 40lbs over weight. So for 20 years you've been allowing yourself to overeat, not exercise as much as you should have been, and ignoring your own health.

All too many times you hear overweight people simply make excuses as to why they are that way. They are that way because they allow themselves to be.

I agree that I am overweight because I allowed myself to be. But making a statement of "sitting on their asses and stuffing their face", to me gives a visual of someone gorging themselves like a ravenous pig, which for most of us, is not the case.

I have never made, nor will I make an excuse for being overweight other than saying when gaining a couple pounds per year, for the first few years, you don't really think about it. It's not an excuse to say that life gets in the way and exercise is not always the top priority. For me, I went from a shop job where I was always active to a desk job. Eating a donut on Friday in the shop was never an issue. With a desk job, it became one over time. Same with going out on Friday night and having a few beers. After a couple/three years, being up 10 pounds from where you were when you got married doesn't seem to be a big deal. Then work picks up, kid responsibilities, whatever happen and another 10 years pass and shit, now what do I do? It's not an excuse, it's what happened. But I never sat on my ass feeding my face in the way you insinuate.

You are fortunate that at a young age, you figured it out, became aware, whatever, and you have a wife that enjoys the same routines you do. You should be better off health wise for that. But, not all of us fit that scenario and we let our weight get the best of us. Sad but true.

Being cynical when you haven't been there puts you in an easy place to criticize. Making fun of people who are facing one of the hardest things they have ever faced is not a cool thing to do. I've viewed this thread as inspirational to most who are struggling with weight. Hancho's post was supportive. Yours was not.

Chad may be a dick but you always know where he stands and I like that in a person. It's just now and then that I want to wring his neck.

I don't know yet about Saturday. Haven't broached the subject with the wife. Maybe if I told her the guys want me to come to celebrate "MY" birthday I would have better luck.
