    Default I give up!

    I'm giving up on the official diet. I got within a pound of my goal weight, but my heart just isn't in it anymore. I'll still eat a lot of salads for lunch and reduce the carbohydrates compared to a year ago, but I won't be tracking what I eat anymore. Hopefully I'll be able to hold my weight at 10 pounds under where I was a year ago. Maybe my 2021 New Year's resolution will be to go after it again.

    Here's the graph of progress:

    Another 5 pounds down. I've really settled into 2-3 pounds lost per week. I'm exactly 1/3 of the way to my goal.

    If I average 2.25 pounds lost per week, I'm 40 weeks from my goal weight, but I anticipate that I'll start to struggle as my caloric intake decrease.

    Still pickleball and counting calories? Or something different?
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    I don’t directly calorie count. I eat meals from the clean simple eats cookbooks. Their meals are all about 250-350 calories, so I definitely keep that in mind when eating.

    In addition to pickle ball, I take my 1-year old for walks frequently at night. I jog once per week, just to see how much further I can go in a set time. And then I do some high weight, low rep strength training 2-3x per week.

    One of the things I've also tried to do is to look for opportunities to walk. The little HOA gym I lift weights in is a half mile away, so I walk to and from. The track I run at is two miles away. I don't walk, but I do ride my Xootr (like a razor scooter for big kids) . And I've started walking to lunch if it's within a mile of my office. I eat delicious tacos and burn all the calories getting there and back. Win-Win.

    My goal is to exit the "obese" BMI category, which in my case is 220. I have 83 pounds to go.

    Nice work, GM! And per the President's personal physician [important to maintain our Trump-centric focus], you're no longer obese. Two days ago his doc gave us a purely objective, fact-based assessment of His Immenseness' physical condition, describing him as "slightly overweight."

    You and Waup are racing down that hill. Keep up the good work.

    As an aside, my youngest was not eating her French fries last night for dinner, so as a father, I assumed the time honored tradition (nay duty) of finishing her food. As I started, my wife scolded me, “stop eating her food, you don’t need any more!” Ouch, apparently I need to start walking too.

    Congrats to GM and everyone else who is working on loosing that extra poundage we've picked up over the years.

    I'm plateu'd a bit since loosing the 20 lbs - I'm bouncing between 185-190. My goal weight is 175.

    The hard part is keeping it off. For those who don't remember, I lost 135 lbs just before I joined the board. I was down to 165, but due to stress eating I put about 65 lbs back on. I've now lost 40 of that and wnat to lose another 10.

    Once again Good Luck to all those on "Body Beautification" projects, my you reach your goals, both in weight and health.

    I may be small, but I'm slow.
