I'm hoping my new Thai diet will shrink me, but I'm not sure. I seem to like it too much. :mrgreen:

My first goal was 185 by Labor Day; missed it by a week. I've had quite a few spot checks well under 185, but this is the first time I've managed to stick it on an official weigh-in day. My pants fit properly again and the chronic heartburn is gone.

Next goal is to build in a buffer before the weather turns nasty. Let's say 180 by Halloween. Going into the winter I'd like to regard 185 as my ceiling, not my floor.

I'm out of the obese zone but still toward the high end of overweight. The BMI table says 160 is the top of normal for me; I'd consider that downright skinny. 170 is more realistic. But that's going to wait for next year's thread.

So far, so stable. Wish I'd gotten a real buffer below 185, but oh well. The weather is deteriorating so it's a holding action until next May.

I've participated in these threads since there have been these threads, and I think this is the first time I've ever notched a win. I'm feeling a little smug, but if I'm back above 190 next spring, I'm gonna be like 'Thanks, Obama!"

I miss that meme.

This week was something of a test. Rain kept me indoors all but two days, and I abandoned my weight-loss menu plan for a diet closer to what I normally eat. I was still mindful of portions and snacking, but I stopped focusing on calories. I was afraid I'd creep up a pound, so hitting a new low for the year, down 11.3 lbs from my highest point, gives me hope for getting through the winter without ballooning back up. Just gotta keep on doing what I'm doing.

Crushed the scale at 208.2 the other day, still, it's down from the carnage I created a few weeks ago at the doctor's office when I clocked in at 211.7. The long, inactive winter was very, very bad for my blood sugar and I was given 3 months to move in the right direction or face a doubling of meds, the precursor to having to take insulin shots. Aside from walking, though, it's still not possible to fit in anything approaching cardio. Bike has not yet left the garage this year, and trying to bike with the kids would be like those jet fighters trying to intercept Krusty flying the Wright Brother's plane on The Simpsons. I have to walk slow so my daughter can keep up on her bike.
205.6 - Late season improvement. I've so far been successful combating the high A1C, dropping it 3 points in 3 months, delighting my doctor. It's still slightly high, but trending in the right direction. It also helps that my wife is determined to implement prohibition in our house, and I'm retaliating by no longer cooking elaborate dinners she used to enjoy because, well, not much outside of breakfast goes with black coffee and when it comes to food and drink, the former is hard to enjoy without the latter.

Im not part of this thread as I usually dont pay attention to my weight. But right now I am. The highest I ever was is 214 many many years ago. My perfect weight is 186. Ive wanted that again for many many years lol. I was 195 when my wife passed and I became sick and shocked I guess and lost down to 187 in about 1 week. I stayed there a long time this year but Ive been kinda depression eating lately...or bored eating. And as my financial situation dictates I eat bad stuff...processed meats, canned stuff, junk food. Anything thats cheap and filling. Well my weight has jumped to 204 and I feel it. I have to get back to at least 188 and I have started today. Im going to go all day without food other than a bite or two of snacks and then eat one item at bedtime. Like soup or a sandwich..whatever as long as its one item only. Ive ate this way many years normally and stayed at a good weight. I hope to get some loss going here as Im also doing more outside now. Must shrink my stomach so Im not always seeming to be hungry even when stuffed.
