I am the classic dieter. Decide to diet. Loose weight, gain it all back plus a couple, diet and loose it all again, gain it all back plus a couple. Classic YOYO......that's me. I want to get it under control and keep it off!!

9/10/07:Time to get back on it, have really let myself go. I am at 231 pounds and feel terrible. Well here we go!!

10/15/07: Off to a great start, I have lost 21 pounds so far and I am down to 210 lbs.
Now comes the hard part, I have 1 month to get down to a mini goal of 200 pounds by 11/14/07. By 12/31/07 I want to be down to 190, and finally after this long journey by the end of February I want to be at 180.

11/23/07:Made it through Thanksgiving still down 2 pounds for the week. Currently at 203 lbs., didn't make my mini goal of 200 by 11/14/07 but I do still believe I am on track. I still don't know how long it will take me to get to 180, I still am shooting for the end of February which gives me 14 weeks to lose 23 pounds which looks doable to me. I get more and more comments on the weight loss and have no clue as to what I will look like at 180 because it has been many a year since I weighed that.

1/8/08:Damn Holidays...... gained about 5 pounds over the holidays and when you think of all the effort you put forth to loose 5 pounds and just isn't worth it. Well back on it starting the 7th and hopefully I can get back the motivation to get my butt down to 180 by April 1st. Heading to Florida then and my original goal was to be at 180 by February. Hard work, tracking calories, doing my cardio and strength excercises that is what it takes to get it done.

    Thanks for the message. I know exactly what you mean. While I still crave the junky food and have outside influences trying to draw me to it I've found that I don't find it as tasting as it once was. I still enjoy the occasional gorge fest but it's nothing like it once was. I'm also mad at myself for not catching it early and letting myself go the way I did.

    You're off to a good start, keep it up! See ya around at the Guys lounge. Take care!

    Thank you for the kind words. I haven't really done a diet. I'm just trying to make a lifestyle change and eat appropriately. Really tracking my calories. Had my Resting Metabolic Rate calculated to determine how calories my body burns each day. With a moderate level of exercise (about 45 minutes a day) I'm burning almost 3000 calories. I'm trying to stay between 1800-2000 per day intake. So that's a deficit of 1000 a day. On average I'm been losing about 2 lbs per week. But it's getting much harder to keep that pace up. The first 50 were easy. The next 50 is going to be more of a challenge. Good luck in making your November goal.

    I am also a classic dieter. This time I am dealing with it as a life style change (hoping it will stick). I suggest weight training as well as dieting. There is a good team to join if you are interested it is called “I want to GAIN muscle!” The leader really knows what he is talking about. In any case, good luck my friend
