    Losing my ass!

    My weight loss has slowed down a bit although I hit 210 lbs last Sunday. I am happy I am down 88 lbs from Jan 2011 but I still have a ways to go and hope I can break 200 lbs in a couple of months. Good luck to all who are striving to get healthier.

    Sad beyond belief, best wishes to the individuals that were hurt and condolences to the families.

    Watches

    Love that Shinola! But way too many watches, maybe if a sold the 18K President that I have worn like 5 times in the last 13 years.

    ^ Good advice, a few flights up the stairs a day do wonders. Quitting soda specially diet is highly recommended since artificial sweeteners SUCK. BTW, cinnamon has been shown to help those with diabetes improve the control of the blood sugar throughout the day.

    Yes, both my cravings and portion size have come down significantly just as you have noticed. I too like eggs and I blend 3 parts egg whites to one whole egg to get some of the color and flavor back into the omelet or scramble eggs. Turkey bacon although not as good helps as well as lox. You are also correct in being meticulous, sugar is hidden in just about everything. Best of luck.

    Best of luck to all who are doing something to get healthier via dieting and exercising. It is a tough battle but one that must be fought and won to allow us to live not just longer but more active lives. I let myself go and got up to 298 lbs so over the last 27 months I have through walking and a low carb regime lost 79 lbs. I realize that a low carb diet (Atkins anyone?) is not well though of by many but if you choose lean cuts, minimize the consumption of eggs and use olive oil the outcome can be very rewarding. I do have another 55 lbs to go (or so I wish) but time will tell. Small steps and keeping short term goals to allow success has been a good driving force in my efforts and that of many others. Wish you all the best.

    I have not ridden in about 2 weeks either, but no big loss since I suck at it anyway. On the other hand went out walking yesterday and did 4.7 miles, hope to do about another 4 miles today to help get rid of the multiple fat donuts …

    Thanks for the encouraging words guys and gals! Besides cycling a couple of times a week I am also walking about 20 miles a week. I mention this to brag a little, not about the exercising but about being down 71 lbs (was at 298 lbs and now at 227 lbs). It has been slow but that is ok, now another 55 lbs more and …

    Vicky, I went out Sunday for an 8 mile ride at 10.2 mph. My quads were killing me (from carrying my fat ass), it is very disconcerting I let myself get so out of shape! But here is to better times ahead.

    Good luck there Vicky. I went out yesterday for my 2nd ride and although it felt great afterwards I sux big time specially in stability, wobbled a lot. Ended up doing a tad over 7 miles at 10.5 mph. Will try to ride again today and hope not to wobble as much.

    Hi John and Vicky, perhaps in 5-8 weeks I might be able to start riding with you two albeit at a much lower pace!

    Well, after 16 years of not riding my bike I finally went today thanks to the order from Performance Bike arriving early. I took about three rounds around the building's parking lot since I was having a hard time getting on the clip less pedals and the saddle … let's say I need a lot of training to do more than the 3.5 miles I did today at a measly 9.5 mph Below is a link to my old 1988 GT Karakoram! http://picasaweb.google.com/109437154048011247077/GTKarakoram?authuser=0&authkey=Gv1sRgCInB3L-O7KmTwwE&feat=directlink
