A Cruise Is Tough On A Body
Monday, February 17, 2014      0 comments

My wife and I are back from 10 days of New Orleans and the western Caribbean ports. Yes, we had fun! The scale punished me this morning with a +12.6 lbs. My doctor's appointment is in 24 days and I want to see how much of those 12 lbs I can get ... Read more

One Month of Maintenance
Thursday, January 30, 2014      3 comments

I met my goal of starting the new year at goal weight instead of starting a crash diet for the first time in my adult life. Now that January is over, I have one solid month below goal weight. Only 3 days were slightly above. I am on Day #175 of... Read more
Who says 2,000 calories is normal?
Tuesday, January 28, 2014      6 comments

I am bouncing around my goal weight but I'm only eating 1200 to 1500 calories and I feel great. If I went back to eating 2000 to 3000 calories with my grazing and constant snacking, I'd gain all my weight back. Normal isn't 2000 calories, it's a... Read more

New Low Weight - All New Territory
Wednesday, January 22, 2014      1 comments

I'm slightly below my new goal weight. When I started this journey in my doctor's office on August 9, 2013, my doctor set a first goal of 177. I said no, I wanted 175. Now my goal is 165 and this morning was 163.4 which is -33.2 on this current ... Read more
Back to Goal Weight

After Sunday's experiment, I'm back at goal weight and now we will approach maintenance in a more sane manner. I will try boosting 100 calories a day for a whole week before trying 200 calories over my plan.... Read more
My experiment was a total failure
Monday, January 20, 2014      0 comments

My experiment with maintenance was a complete failure. Of course I should have known it would be. I had reached my goal weight and was trying to increase my calories by only 100 per day per week. But yesterday, I jumped up 400 calories and bing... Read more
I'm trying to get my calories UP
Sunday, January 19, 2014      4 comments

This losing weight is a crazy thing. I've focused like a laser beam on 1200 calories a day for 6 months. Now on Day #164, I'm trying to find my maintenance level and I really find it difficult to slowly ease back up to 1500. I used to gorge myse... Read more
Our Bodies Are Amazing
Saturday, January 18, 2014      1 comments

Our bodies are an amazing creation ... IF ... we take care of them. My doctor approved my goal of 175 and I did it to see if my blood pressure [BP] would come down to normal. When I got to 175, it still was borderline high. Now that I'm 10 lbs u... Read more
I'm still losing - I have to add more calories
Friday, January 17, 2014      0 comments

I'm still trying to find my maintenance point so I will add a few more calories to try to find that point since I'm still losing weight. This is enough weight loss. Now I want to learn to live here.... Read more
