I'm so not a self-starter.
My knee operation has been slow to heal. The O.D. told me for every pound I shed, that was also less pain. That put me back in the gym.
I used SP's recommended workouts for people with knee pain. I also dedicate 2 days a week to eating grains and veggies only. I'm down 3 pounds: sleeping better, and walking better.

Never say you didn't have enough time: You have the same amount of time that was given to Helen Keller, Albert Einstein, William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, Winston Churchill.

In getting started on my fitness program, there were days I just didn't want to go in. My wife would say, "Just go in and start on your exercises, and see what happens". Every time I've done that, I've stayed for the whole routine. Glenn

Dave, it's great when you can see a change like that in only one month.
You'll have to check it again in a few months.

What a difference a month makes! I've been back at it consistently for over a month now and my numbers have flipped from 6 years over to 6 years under my chronological age. Lesson learned? I sure hope so.

Ouch. I just did the calculator with my current numbers and my fitness age is 6 years older than my chronological age. Based on my numbers from six months ago it would have been just the opposite - six years younger than my chronological age. I like that number much better which makes for a nice incentive to help me get back to where I was.

Thought this was an interesting way to look at your fitness. Told a former running buddy who is trying to get back in shape to see what his Fitness Age is. It came back saying he is 2 years older than his chronological age. I'm older with a younger fitness age.

Seems like we sometimes focus on motivation. I am at my best when I just do it. The mind can find more reasons not to do something sometimes, than reasons for doing something.

I sometimes trick myself when I exercize. On days when motivation is low, I'll tell myself I'll just do a short run and when I'm at the turn around point, I push just another telephone pole or other landmark beyond.

Sometimes I'll weigh myself and then go for a run and weigh in again just to remind myself of how much I can lose simply by a run. I know it's not a permanent loss but pyschologically it's a boost to me to see that lower number - gives me more incentive to keep up the program.

On June 20 I had my right leg amputated below the knee. I decided then that I had to get up and go or set down and die. I am 62 and decided I needed to get up and go. I am now walking with a cane and soon will be walking unassisted. Positive thinking is a good motivator.

Great advice from the Dr., get healthy or die. Kind of like take 2 aspirins and call me in the morning. Your better off participating in your life in a positive way rather than assuming there is no tomorrow. Love the carrots and water advice.

I see my Dr at least once a year. Blood panel is run so I have that and other risk factors that he evaluates.

I'm age 56. I'm at pretty good numbers (e.g. average risk factor from the blood work is less than 1/2 the average risk). Are you suggesting that I also see a cardiologist?

My tip is to see a cardiologist. Heart disease is the #1 killer in the US. Most of us over age 55 have problems with either blood pressure or choloestorol (when was the last time you had either of those checked?) or with parts of our ticker. So, the first thing your cardiologist is going to say, is "get healthy or die" - sooner than later. These words are a great motivator, expecially in light of the test results and numbers you are going to see. Its time to wake up and do something about it. Fear, in this case is a great motivator.

No I don't have any medical conditions. If you are on meds I would check with your Doctor before you try a fast. I've not even thought about food today and I am already 17 hours into my fast. Once I am back down to my target weight all I need to do is one fast a week to allow for days when I over indulge.

Lean gains is another good site to check out, slightly different approach than Brad Pillion, I have tried both and like Pillions better. Not eating for 24 hours frees up a fair bit of time, no cooking or dishes to worry about emoticon

Do you have any medical conditions. I take some meds and the fasting angle sounds attractive before being diagnosed. Michael Jackson used to fast on Sunday I believe. My diet doesn't afford me as much leeway in my weekly calorie intake. I am glad it works for you.

I try to keep my calories around 2000 and fast 2 times per week for 24 hours. I go from supper time to supper time. This compensates for days that I go over. I got all my fasting information from eat stop eat by Brad Pillion. You do have to strength train on your fasting days and it does seem to keep my energy levels stable and has stopped my cravings for sweet things.

The serving industry became a little less attractive when IRS began to tax their tip earnings. Tax free tip earnings use to be a great incentive to be a server. Another perfect scheme fouled up by government intervention.

Yep, in the Real World, tips can make a real difference to servers' ability to live independently. Ever since our daughter worked as a server while at university and immediately thereafter, DW teases me that when it comes to tipping, I behave as if it's solely my responsibility to ensure all servers are able to live in the manner to which they'd like to become accustomed : )

Some family members have been waiters, and they seem a lot more sympathetic to 20% tipping.
I visited some family members and they left some very nominal tips while we were visiting. I stay around 15% unless service or food was poor, sometimes more if they were better. It was embarrassing to see a little tip left. Especially when we may have picked up the check, and all they had to do was leave the tip.

Ken,
I am trying out some new items as well. Once observation, when you implement 3 at a time,
it will be hard to determine which of the three had an effect.

Since I switched gears last month from weight loss, to building muscle, I am changing my diet to increase protein intake. I'm drinking shakes 1st thing in the am and also for my small meals of the day, etc. I'm trying different brands and different items such as casein vs whey protein, etc. I will be considering some fat burners like the green tea as time goes on.

So, let us know how your "trials" go, as I keeping an open mind on supplements.

I appreciate that Dr. Oz promotes a lot of good concepts but I'm not a fan. He oversells things and tries too hard to "shock" his audience. He has good information on his website but he distills it too much for my liking. I like the information I find on Livestrong.com. They primarily present the necessary information and then link to the research without too much editorializing. The papers I saw on raspberry ketones don't sound particularly promising and I saw one add saying you would have to eat an enormous amount of real fruit to equal what is in their product. That's always a warning sign to me.

Raspberry ketones and green coffee bean extract have been touted on Dr. Oz as having components that speed up metabolism or block fat absorption. Everything Dr. Oz touts sounds too good to be true and you know the adage about if it's too good to be true . . . .

I never heard of any of these "enhancers" but then I don't follow the topic very closely. I did a quick search for information and the African Mango looks very intriguing. It also comes from a beautiful tree that seems to have a lot of sustainable uses as well which is also a bonus.

OK. I don't like calling it 'opening a can of worms' . . .

but is anybody else trying the supposedly amazing African Bush Mango drink, Raspberry Ketones, or Green Coffee Bean weight-loss "enhancers" ?

We're using all three in our house. Endorsement or withholding thereof pending outcomes in another month or so.

Plenty of water and tea is definitely the big thing. I found some nice new holiday teas and I've been getting half my daily water intake that way and it really helps control the snack monster.

Water's going to be the Big Thing again for me for the next couple of weeks. Have a glass of water when I crave a snack. Have a cup of tea when I'm feeling like it's wine-before-dinner-time. Have water while I'm eating meals. Have water between meals. And keep a clear path to the bathroom ; )

Yum. I've been enjoying my clementine lately. I get a bunch of bananas, and when they get ripe, cut em up, add a little lemon juice, and freeze em. It's not far from that to an apple, a little banana, a clementine into the blender with some plain yogurt. Quick, easy, and cheap.

The advantage of having a mini-fridge in my office is that I can keep it stocked with yogurt, fresh fruits, salad, cold cuts so I'm rarely tempted to eat out except the occasional lunch with a visitor or to pay off a stupid sports bet :-).

I *always* brown-bag it on days when I work. I know all too well that the smells of the school cafeteria will draw me to the dark side if I don't have my own food to eat. For snacks while driving--and living 100 miles away from our family doc and our daughter means we drive *a lot*--I keep nuts in the car for snacks. They don't freeze in winter, they don't go bad in summer and even though they're heavy on fat, it's healthy fat. The issue for me is to be really strict with portion size--way too much salt otherwise : )

I am the "cook" for me and my wife and on most nights I make enough to provide a lunch for me the following day at the office. I cook healthy, so... my lunch is healthy and smart - no high calorie fast food for me!

Same here, Ken. Water and diet ginger ale or a cup of decaf tea are a great way to solve the problem of eating something before I get down to things with calories. Hot tea or coffee may be best for me because it involves lots of little sips instead of disappearing in a few swallows. Kind of like snacking. Maybe. If you stretch it. But that's my approach as well.

Missed my morning weigh in today as I had to do some work very early and get a message out to colleagues before breakfast. (The joy of working in your bathrobe.) Messed up my routine and I missed the "empty" weigh in that I use for day to day comparison. Probably just as well, as last night was a blow out dinner with friends.

Ha Ha. I think nekkid weigh ins are frowned upon in our fitness center. I don't have a very accurate scale at home so the fitness center is my official scale. I make sure I wear the same shoes, shorts and t-shirt for the weigh in and I eat pretty much the same breakfast so it is pretty consistent for me.

Good point about drinking water to fight the urge to snack. Most of the time that will satisfy the craving. I try to do that when driving which is when I usually have the worst snack attacks but I need to make sure I know where all the rest areas are.

Great discussion thread. I don't know how I missed it when it got started. Lots of good tips here. Got a kick out of the 'when to weigh' strand : ) Me? I weigh in on Monday morning, nekkid--*that'll* make a guy want to shape up : ), post-morning bathroom time, pre-coffee and breakfast--theoretically the lightest I'll be all day. That weight lets me know how strict I have to be over the coming week as a result of any indulgences of the weekend. I weigh in again on Friday morning to monitor the week's progress. If I'm getting close to an interim target weight, I weigh daily--wouldn't want to miss the magic moment!

Overall best tip? Drink water before succumbing to urge to eat off schedule. If the urge persists, hopefully I'll feel satisfied a little sooner than if I hadn't had the water. Needless to say, this means I've learned to track every bathroom in walking distance at all times : )

I agree that TV (whether cable or DVD or other input) is THE time when I do the mindless snacking trick. I don't use cable, but often watch DVD's. Got to find a way around the satisfaction that comes with munching stuff, even healthy stuff, that I'm not actually hungry for, while watching.

This tip is certainly not for everyone but about a month ago we disconnected the cable TV and that has had a huge impact on my mindless snacking. Mindless snacking is probably my biggest downfall and this time of year I usually start falling off the wagon. Not coming home and vegging out in front of the tube has helped me hold steady as I approach maintenance. I'm a bit of a news and sports junky and it was too easy to just come home turn on the TV to "relax". The funny thing is now that I don't have the TV on, I am more relaxed than ever. When I want to watch sports I go to the fitness center and watch while I'm on the elliptical or treadmill or stationary bike. Apparently, it is turning into a habit because I just realized I never turned on the TV in my hotel room when I was at my conference last week.

Re when to weigh... years ago I was a guinea pig in a research project that fed me different diets and required I live (sleep and eat, anyway) in the hospital research ward. They weighed me every morning after I emptied my bladder. That was their view of consistent weight. They also wanted to know if I'd moved my bowels the previous day. I guess a "no" might have explained an unexpected, small weight gain. Anyway, that's how I weigh now. Not much weight variation that way as others have already noted.

I agree - Baby Steps are best not only when starting out on your new life style, but in keeping your life sytle from being BORING and STANGNAT.
I try to focus on one new idea every other week or so to spark up by diet with flavor while helping to keep calories low and nutrition high. This week it is using my bamboo steamer basket to cook my marinated veggies. The trick is not to "over" steam!

Tip for a more healthy lifestyle: You can't change everything at once. Change something, see if it can become natural, and pay attention to it for a while. Then change something else.

When I say "change something," I mean something pretty small. "Buy and eat fresh produce" is too big. A change is more like, "buy some oranges and figure out how to store, peel, and eat them." Or, "buy some bell peppers and figure out how to use them in salads and omelets." Those two changes didn't happen at the same time for me, and both might have failed if I'd tried to do them at the same time.

I weigh myself daily, and have recorded the weights for over a decade. The key isn't how often you weigh, though there might be a psychological edge in different schedules for different people. I believe the key is finding a time where the weigh-in is as *consistent* as you can make it.

I weigh first thing in the morning, when I'm dehydrated from going all night without water (or no more than a sip to go with my thyroid med at 3 AM), in jockey shorts and a tee shirt. If my eating and hydration pattern is stable, the day to day weights don't move much. By way of contrast, my intra-day weight can fluctuate by as much as 5 pounds.

Because I weigh daily, no individual day's weight is important in maintenance. (New lows were important in the weight loss phase.) I watch the trend. It's harder to make the trend go sideways than it was to make the trend go down. And let's not talk about how easy it is to make the trend go up.

My official weigh-in is Saturday. That is the day I post to the weigh-in team and also for changing the ticker. But as I posted before, I weigh daily. If I have gained a few pounds on one day, I can get instant feedback on the next day or the days after that.

If I am up those same pounds on a weekly weigh-in, I don't want to have to wait another week to get feedback that the gain was temporary.

From my perspective, the daily fluctuations are forgotten when I weigh daily. The weekly weigh creates too much opportunity for the high day to occur on Saturday vs the other six days of the week.

I've started doing the curiosity checks as well. I've varied my official weigh-in days, but for the fall and winter it'll switch to Wednesdays. With me getting close to my goal weight, I know I will need to keep an eye on it to make sure I am properly maintaining my weight.

I'll weigh in on the scale discussion (nyuk, nyuk). I'm with Dennis on this topic. I think weighing in weekly is a better approach and I make Monday my "official" weigh-in day. I also weigh-in at about the same time on Monday because time of day can have an influence. However, I do step on the scale just about every day out of curiosity and monitor the daily fluctuation. I also tend to check at different times of day because my schedule is so variable. I find it interesting how much weight can fluctuate from day to day and at different times of day and knowing this keeps things in perspective. Because of the fluctuations, I know that a change of a couple pounds in either direction is not always reliable and the overall trend is most important.

If you are an individual who reacts to the absolute number vs an acceptable range (e.g. within 5 lbs), then I agree the weekly weigh-in is a better tool.

My TIP for today is to only weigh yourself ONLY once a week, and I recommend that your weight day be MONDAY.

Everyone's weight fluxuates with our water retention, humidity, and types of food we last ate. One's weight can vary as much as plus/minus 2 lbs - that means a four pound difference between lightest to heaviest. Don't keep going to the scale - the false joy or undeserved heartbreak will put you on a roller coaster of emotions.

Why Monday? - because it will keep you on track during the most challenging part of your week, the weekend.

Good luck, keep those tips rolling in!

Lots of good tips here. As I mentioned on your Blog,I try to spice my food up,Hot sauce,Cyan,Jalapeno's,Horse Radish etc.This slows my eating down and forces me to take smaller bites. I know this tip isn't for everyone but I have really learned to love the hotness and spiciness.

I was just blogging about some "fun" I had with a fajita dinner last week, when it hit me that another "tip" is something we probably heard from our moms and dads far too many times when we were kids: "chew your food", "don't shovel", "cut your food", etc. Translated into adult words:

"Enjoy your food"!

Honesty is definitely the best policy. As some of you have already said, being honest with yourself is critical. I still haven't figured out all the tricks yet but it is important to know your own weaknesses so you can deal with them. I would say my main tip/trick regarding nutrition is to not overdo cutting calories. It's counter intuitive but you have keep eating to lose weight. Bob is an excellent role model for how well it can work. My main tip/trick for fitness is find out what you love to do and do it but also keep trying new things. Add an extra walk here and there. Take a long-cut instead of a short-cut. Make excuses to get out and move.

The biggest change for me was my eating habits. Some folks have a sweet tooth, I am a fast food (e.g. high fat) junkie. My wife would always suggest eating breakfast at home and/or taking lunch to work like she does. I always, always wanted that sausage biscuit in the morning and the break from the workplace by eating lunch at McD's.

I only managed to change this habit around December of last year. So, while I can't say I have been "sober" for a year yet, "what" I eat has had the largest impact on my health. I look back on decades of poor diet and hope the damage to my body is minimal. Yet, I have lots of potential improvement in my consumption of fruits and veggies. But changing my lifestyle can be like turning a battleship.

So, my big "top two" tips would be:
1) change to more healthy eating habits and
2) listen to your wife!

LOL, I hear ya Patrick.

I also keep my scale in the kitchen....get on it before preparing any meal or getting any snack to remind me of where I am. It's easy to fall off the wagon once you start losing...the scale puts it back in perspective that I am NOT TRIM yet, even though the pants n shirts are lots looser.

Both of your tips are good ones Bob, but do I love the "topless" picture! I don't think my DW would allow me to put on on our frig but maybe I can print one and put on near my desk. I have no shortage of appalling "before" pictures! In fact my oldest daughter found some pics of me from back in 2000 when my 3 kids and I were in AZ (first trip the 4 of us made together after my ex and I had separated. To put it mildly -- I looked like BLIMP! VERY unflattering pictures!

Keep a "topless" not so flattering picture of myself on the pantry and refrigerator door.

Calorie intake...I have "x" calories for the day and don't go past that. A twist to that is that for the last 3 Sundays I have taken "free or refeed" days....and allow 2500 cals, about 500 more cals than my other days. All foods are still healthy.

I am anal about tracking everything that enters my mouth, the SP PhoneApp has been great.

Measuring too....on the counter I have a set of metal measuring cups, set of tsp/tbl measuring spoons, and a small kitchen scale more measuring weights of meats etc

EATING is what put me here...EATING RIGHT, will get me out of here.

I think the biggest lesson I have learned is that you HAVE to be honest about the food you eat. What you eat, how you eat, how MUCH you eat, and when you eat it.

Since this is a guys forum (and if any women read this and get offended -- too bad!), but what I see with so many women (especially ones who have done WLS), is that they will post with a 2 or 3 pound weight gain and then deny that there has been anything unusual about their eating habits (especially when it happens several weeks in a row!). One week, that's one thing, but if you experience more than that, then something is not right. This is where the honesty factor comes in.

Maybe I am biased, but I think we guys are much more open and honest about this.

I keep my work out and weight loss goals on a weekly deadline. Makes them more realistic and attainable.

"I can do all things if I just get off my but's and admit I'm in control of me!" SGM 1:1-5 The only real verse I need.

Never say you didn't have enough time: You have the same amount of time that was given to Helen Keller, Albert Einstein, William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, Winston Churchill.

I teach because I love to Learn!

Gentlemen, came up with this topic while I was in the basement filling up water jugs this morning, and I'm going to make it a sticky topic. Basically this is a place to post the tips and tricks you have developed to be a healthy man. So fill this up with great ideas and at the same time maybe we'll see a tip that will make the journey more successful.
