  1. 218.5 LB this morning Enjoyed tracking detailedly for a bit, it helped learn what can add up. Still finding how I will workout. Work is going well, now during busy time of AEP. The big step for health is finding balance and eating well while mobile.
  2. I am down on weight yesterday and today, I will wait until after the weekend to post weight. We got birthday food today, and d&d tomorrow. Should still be down. I have not been tracking as much recently but staying aware. I may try and get back to tracking next week. Work is starting to pump up AEP is starting next week for Medicare and Open enrollment will soon after for under 65. I had an early (62) retireiry call me from large local employer had a good time helping him plan already getting refferals.
  3. Ate fun food with reasonable control over weekend. Monday read high on scale. Today 222.2 so recovered quick from weekend.
  4. the scale this morning was 222.6! so recovered and then some from Sundays food. also, that is over 10-pound loss from the high 233 weight. I think 233 was a tempory high, but it was still on the scale. Note I started one week before this 5-week challenge... so I am on a 6-week challenge... I have not been entering my food when it is a common day, mostly just for off days to keep in check as much as can. This weekend will be well off: - Friday Sisters prewedding party and food. -Saturday will have party food with 5 guests over most of the day. (plan to keep reasonable with veggie and fruit tray lunch) -Sunday sisters wedding so wedding food...
  5. This finished week, I was doing well and was down to 224.4 Sunday morning. Sunday we ate out, had a birthday, and D&D... so that was an off day. back to 226.x this morning. I think it will go back down quickly will see what it is tomorrow after one clean day. At this point think I will be down to 220 at the end of this challenge now.
  6. Nice diary, looks like most days are green so that is good!
  7. Woot woot. On the Broccoli (that I eat most days) I recommend buying the "florets" then you get just the "trees" and not the stems. That is my preference. The foods I am surprised by calorie density: Cheese, pastas these I keep to a pass or really limit.
  8. Here you see D&D with Taco Bueno Tortilla have a lot of calories and are not filling. 3 party burritos...
  9. Update. Doing well Week back one 3 LB loss, two 2 LB loss Down 5LB 226 this morning. Also seem losing Fat! Home body fat % test 09/13/2019. 229LB. 30% body 09/23/2019. 226LB. 28.6% My nutrition has three focuses Calorie count- current 1500 Macros - about 25-30% protein Food types- minimum sugar, preservatives, unknowns, breads Some one or two days week I eat something fun that slacks on one item on food types, and some times that lowers protein for that day. Sunday is my D&D meetup this week I ate my full 2000 calories with D&D night but that is ok ones a weekish.
  10. I am enjoying logging and watching calories and macros. I know many think it is a burden, for me it feels like part of my RPG or RPLife. It is my resource management.
  11. Eggs are a regular for me and will continue to be while I push on. My pans are not being as antistick as they once were and would like to invest in new what some recommendations. I have used a Copper, one that came with pan set, and Cuisinart All did well/ok and faded over use. I like being able to cook my eggs without adding oil etc.
  12. Mon & Tuesday good, I treated myself with the impossible burger after a work success, after but I adjusted my eating for the day to stay in parameters.
  13. First week passed since reboot. I had a wedding party that I did ok at, think I could have limited my second plate and I need to learn it is ok to waist food more often when I realize I have had enough. Also had a long tabletop game day, this forced off eating. I prepared with light eating before, while there had a filler with a banana. When it came to the main I did eat pizza but I am ok with doing so infrequently at group gatherings. They were medium pizzas I stopped my self at 4 slices (cheese pizza) some may find that a lot, but for me that was control knowing there was still more. Weight update Last week Sunday scale said 233, but Monday 231 think Sunday's may have been more a fluke. This morning 228 LB 3-5 LB drop woot woot over obviously happy with weight drop, more so happy with nutrition. Still learning tricks for me Attached two days eating, very simple and boring mostly, good for me.
  14. Having a partner would really help. I would recommend finding someone even online to check you technique from video if you have to limit bad habits.
