I'm in the same height/weight class as you and would also be happy to get below 185 again. I look and feel my best around 175-180, but have been getting dangerously close to my all-time high of 203. I think 185 is a realistic goal for this year.Madmarcus wrote: ↑Sun Apr 28, 2019 10:03 pmI'm not one of the regulars in this thread so hopefully this isn't too obnoxious of a brag but I'm down below 185 without even trying!
For years I was between 190-195. Too heavy but not so heavy that I cared about it. But it had been creeping up and my last two annual physicals were just over 200. I generally eat fairly healthy when we are cooking and I eat out infrequently enough that it isn't a problem. The problem is that I tend to eat way to much if someone puts out a sweets - the church coffee hour, the cake in the teacher's lounge, sampling all the deserts at a Christmas get together, and so forth.
The solution turned out to be moving to Korea. No more church coffee hours. This school has BBQs and the like for the expat staff but there is no culture of random food in the teacher's lounge or deserts at the BBQ because baking is expensive and difficult here. Flying to the US is expensive so we weren't around for family feasts in Nov. and Dec. Plus the Korean love of soup matches up well with my love of soup so when we do eat out I'm filling up on water.
At 5'8" I'm still too heavy but it is still nice.

This month is making a bid for the rainiest April ever, so I'm still housebound most mornings. Still hoping this weather pattern will break and I can get back to wearing out shoes next week.
