    Made it to 208.2 today. For some reason this week was very strange. By Friday of last week, I was showing 208. Then things fluctuated up and down (even below 208) and back up again. So the scale...

    So the day after Thanksgiving was a fluke. That weight came off quickly and I have been steadily going down since. I have adjusted my timeline because I was a week ahead and this week confirms it. So...

    Great job John. I remember those days a few years ago when we got below 200. Glad you got there. I am looking at mid January to hopefully get there myself. Hope you keep it up!

    Yeah, I meant without flexing, but good to know you have some muscle weight too. One thing I forgot to mention is that it is very common to have constipation when cutting calories. This is especially...

    I think you have the right idea with weighing the food for a couple weeks, then dropping calories from there. I don't think all of the calories you drop needs to be carbs though. As long as you get...

    Good job everyone. I know a lot of us gained some water weight back so these numbers are really impressive. I have decided to adjust my Jan 1 goal to 202.0 in honor of the upcoming year xD

    It was definitely touch and go with Thanksgiving last week. But I managed to make it to 209.6 and am finally below 210 again. I estimate my BF to be about 25% now. I have now adjusted my goals to...

    The problem is that with 100 lbs to lose doing a recomp is going to make you worry too much about potential muscle loss and keep you from ever getting down to a body fat level that will show off the...

    I would like to verify that when you say you are eating 2400 calories, you mean that is the amount consumed in a day. Not the amount consumed minus the calories burned at the gym. Are you weighing...

    Tommy is right. You just have to get down to a decent weight before worrying about muscle. That said, you don't want to lose more than you have to and should continue going to the gym. At some point...

    If it gets you to the gym, then just about anything is fine while cutting. I can't say the same for bulking as I am far from an expert on that subject. I would say that your energy could be low if...

    Thanksgiving made my scale change for today. Wednesday I was 211.8, yesterday I had a whoosh and was down to 210.0 (less after pooping, but I don't count that kind of weight loss ha!). Of course I...

    The turkey is not the only thing stuffed

    Definitely ate more carbs than expected... There were so many pies and I couldn't resist the bread I made. We will see what it does to my weight this week. I know tomorrow's weigh-in is not going to...

    Do you weigh your food? Sounds like a calorie counting error to me at this point. Do you have any recent pics? Also, I noticed you take your weight before going to the gym. I would only use the...

    Happy Thanksgiving

    For those of you celebrating Thanksgiving, what are your plans calorie wise? Personally, I am just going to try to limit the amount I eat but not really track today. I am trying to stay at or below...

    I like to weigh myself daily just to see what happens. I trust the process, so I don't get discouraged if weight goes up here and there. I have to admit that I didn't think I was going to lose much...

    As mentioned above, the main thing is to look at the total calories you eat. Those starchy foods can have a lot of calories if you don't watch the portion size. Of course, more exercise helps, but...

    Some people will eat less to make up for eating more one day. If it was just maintenance, then the day was a wash and pretend it didn't exist. Sometimes you need to do that to stay sane. If you have...

    I didn't even try until I was in my 40's so I can't say it is harder. I guess I can say I was naturally more active before since I was overweight, but not obese until I got older. The benefit of age...

    I am a big fan of exercises that incorporate progression. Just like lifting weights takes time to get to the heavy weights, so should your exercise for the heart muscle. It is true that there is not...
