Funny. After venting frustration on Sunday, I have lost 5 lbs as of this morning's weigh in. Scale said 280, I said Woo Hoo.
Bought two new belts over the weekend as my current one is now too damn big.
good job! If I got frustrated everytime my weight went up I would be miserable, it always fluctuates a lb or two, so for you 5 pounds isn't too bad. I just take out my aggression on the weights, but I wear baggie clothes instead of a sports bra to the gym on these "heavier" days!
My weight fluctuates by at least 4 lbs. I've chosen to ignore it!
absolutely go with weekly weigh-ins not daily. You'll just see water retention and stupid weight differences going every day. I weigh every monday. I've read that your "true" weight is in the morning before breakfast, after you pee. It keeps it consistent to do it like this.
I would reccomend that you take a look at your daily caloric intake and mix of carb, protein and fat. You can log the meals you eat and obtain this information for free at Fitday.com. You will want to lower your total caloric intake to meet your weight goals. I would say that if you can shoot for 2000-2200 calories a day with a good mix of protein, complex carb and fat- you should be able to meet your goal. You mention that you snack on Cheerios. It would be in your best interest to find vegetables that you could swap the Cheerios for like a mix of green pepper slices and baby carrots- mix up the combos for variety. This will provide you with a much healthier snack. In my opinion, you should try to limit the amount of prepared carb products (like bread, crackers, cereal) to as little as possible. Nothing wrong with Oatmeal as it is a whole grain- throw some Cinnamon on top for insulin support. Cardio will help burn fat off fat and help you achieve weight loss- move up slowly on the weights but maintain progress. Walk that mountain trail on the weekend for some Higher Intensity Training- that will really help with your overall plan. Good Luck!
I hit a rut this week as I was traveling with work, stuck in Cleveland and Atlanta. Sometimes you just have to have cocktails to get the sale. I paid the price on the scale this morning, up 3 lbs to 283.
Gonna hit it hard again as in two weeks, we will be heading to Orlando. Hopefully my willpower will be a little bit better down there.
Good luck yo. You should use fitday.com. I just started using it and so far today i like it.

I'm stuck at a Regional meeting in Orlando and all of my fellow sales reps think I'm pregnant because I just drink bottled water. I don't drink unless it's my cheat day, just empty calories. It is very hard to do because it's not the norm, people think you're strange that you don't partake in a beverage or two, but just think about making a life change.
Or, if you can't give up the drinks, then sacrifice something else.
Thanks for the updates on your progress, I enjoy keeping up with you! Good luck!
Order arnold palmers or other non alchoholic drinks
Good Ol' Arnold Palmers. I would pay to see you order a Shirley Temple
Both of my daughters order them all the time maybe someday we'll get a round for the table, and i'll record it with my cellphone
I know, I know. I got caught up in the moment, but it was a big deal and I wanted my clients to be comfortable. Orlando is my wife's conference, so I will be on the golf course during the day and I don't drink alcohol when I play golf (although it would probably improve my game). They do have some great restaurants in Orlando, though. Just have to order smart.
Shirley Temples...lol nothing with an umbrella, thank you very much.
pity, if you were on a keto diet, i'd suggest texas de brazil
I can't eat buffet (or any all-you-can-eat). I have willpower to avoid these places, but my powers leave me when I go inside the restaurant!
Just checking in. Haven't had much news. I seem to have plateaued at 280 lbs, but quite honestly, to still be at 280 after the Orlando trip, I would say sis an overall win.
I did hit Texas de Brazil on Saturday night. It was pretty amazing. We couldn't get seated until almost 10 pm and after eating all that meat, I just felt like going out side and flipping a truck over.
Anyway, back in Alabama and getting back on the train. I did work in two workout sessions in Florida and played a round of golf, but will post again when I have some updated info.
From my experience as a personal trainer, you should be able to drop about 15-20 lbs on a cleaner diet alone. You are working out as well which is a bonus, so if you aren't seeing any results, you may want to sit down and reevaluate what you are eating. It may open your eyes to just jot everything down that you are eating. No one said it was easy...I'm all for tough, but honest love/support. You can do it, get your @ss in gear
I love the VIZSLA. I had one as a teenager, and she was my best pal for 14 years. She loved to go running with me. Yours looks young still (no white face yet).
Sorry for the hijack FA
Easy way out would be getting some clenbuterol(research it), and doing cardio for an hour a day at least 4 times a week, you'll shed weight like crazy, you'll be losing 10 lbs a week with a decent diet.
Cause if u can't lose any weight at 280, then your just not trying, not trying to be a **** bro, but just say to yourself unless i do it right then just wasting my time.
