so, I'm trying to lose a bunch of weight. I weigh in every Monday morning. My calorie intake is as follows Sunday-Friday:

1. Coffee with real 1/2 & 1/2, 300 calories +/-
2. Dinner bag of pre mixed salad, 10oz grilled chicken, Italian dressing, (real, not lite or fat free) 300 calories
3. Popcorn, salted, big bowl (3/4 cup in-popped) 300 calories

Saturday,
1. Coffee w/cream 300 calories
2. 4 beers 400 calories,
3. Grill a small (10ozish) steak, salmon or chicken breast, grilled vegetables, thinking, 800 calories

I'm not exercising yet, trying to get my back under control (excuses)

No sugar, sweets, etc

carbs, in the popcorn (good carbs???) some in the lite beer and cream.

I'm losing 1-2 lbs a week, shouldn't it be more?

kicker: I'm 66 and been on EVERY funky diet ever available, even had gastric sleeve surgery. Nutritional Psychologist diagnosed me as a Chronic Binge Eater (CBE)

Cut out the beer and enjoy some straight whisky. Less calories and better buzz.

I noticed my biggest loses when I cut out the alcohol and only ate clean foods. Meaning I only ate veggies, fruits and meat. No sausage, sandwich meat, salad dressing, cheese or anything else that isn't completely natural and non-processed. You do that with moderate exercise and you will see the weight fall off. It took about 6 weeks for me to lose 20 pounds so that is around 3-4 lbs a week. In 6 weeks at the rate you are going, it will be noticeable in due time. Just keeping working hard at it and someone will notice and mention it to you and then it will really be on. Good luck and don't stop, it's right around the corner.

I downloaded an app and monitor my food through it. Keeps me accountable. I binge eat too but as long as you enter your info it makes me think about it a lot more. Also, any exercise can be entered to increase your calorie intake. I am 47 and have lost anywhere from 2-5 a week since the end of January.

Agreed, I eat less during the week so I can enjoy my beer on the weekend. Not the healthiest but it seems to work.

3500 calories saved is one pound of loss. Just cutting out the half and half would be 3 extra pounds a month. One pound of fat is quite a bit. It just takes time.

1-2 pounds a week is plenty, Buzz.

You have a lot of "empty" calories that are not helping excite your metabolism. You can replace those with "good" caloric fuel. This will actually increase your calories per day but burn more by making choices that stoke the furnace and speed your metabolic rate.

1-2 pounds per week is positive if it is coming from the proper areas/sources. When a person loses weight it comes form 3 areas: 1. Fluid; 2. Muscle tissue; 3. Fat tissue. Minimizing the fluid and muscle tissue loss is key. Throw your scale in the nearest dumpster and let your clothes be the tell tale sign. That scale is nothing more than negative reinforcement.

1-2lbs a week is a healthy weight loss. However, your calories are too low to be sustainable. Plugin to myfitnesspal if you're using that app or this website and you'll see the calorie goal you should aim for. https://www.iifym.com/iifym-calculator/

For pure weight loss, you don't need to exercise. You should lift some weights. You'll feel much better. I agree with H2O about quality food and you should quit looking at the scale more than once every couple weeks at most.

10 oz of chicken is about 500 calories so I think your calculations are a little bit off. But your diet seems decent, although I would consider eating 3-4 smaller meals throughout the day rather than a big dinner. At night most of your calories will go to storage rather than being burned as your activity level is lower. Try not to eat anything after 6:00 PM and consider intermittent fasting 1-2 days per week. The weight will fall off.

If you can walk a couple miles per day or do something to increase your caloric burn you will greatly increase your weight loss as well. Also, even some sort of weight training will increase it even more as your body continues to burn calories even after your work out.

I don't know how much you weigh, but unless you are already pretty skinny or have a lot of muscle you should be able to lose more than 1-2 lbs per week.

I use the my fitness pal app. Cutting calories works every time it is tried for my weight loss and gain. I had 5 years of my intake on a spreadsheet and had it down to a science how much I would gain or lose per week.

Iím using my Fitness Pal as well. Itís helped me drop 28 pounds since January. My problem is that I do not like vegetables, so that takes away a lot of clean, low calorie and filling foods off the table for me.

You guys have helped inspire me to start again. I started this Monday. I'm currently sitting at 243 and want to be at 215. Good luck and I will see you at the finish line.

Guys and gurus

I started my weight loss February 5th @ 311lbs. last Friday I was 288.
today, I was 288, NO LOSS

I had an epidural corticoid steroid injection in my back yesterday to fight this spinal stenosis. Wonder if this may have bloated me up or the Ringers drip they had in me during the 10 minute process.

So, am I over reaction, calories are still 1000- 1200 daily.

No exercise cuz of my back, till Doc says its ok.

Unfortunately, maybe, the last thing I eat about 7:30 is a bowl of popcorn w/ a little popcorn salt, popped in 2 tablespoons of veg oil. Do you think this "carb" is killin me? Its about 200 calories.

You have lost 23 lbs which is about 7.4% of your total body weight. I'd say that is an excellent start. Stay committed and don't quit.

You're fine, stalls happen. Your body likes the reserves and will occasionally buck you on losing too much too fast. If you haven't lost any more again next Friday, evaluate and see if you need to switch something up.

One way I've fixed stalls in the past is have a cheat meal (a meal, not an entire day). Go enjoy some chips and salsa with your dinner. I'm not sure if this actually works, but to me it tells your body 'ok, we're not dying, I can let go of fat again'

You're doing great! Ad no that carb is not killing you. Your body has a set point. That point in which it 'knows' what weight it needs to be functioning optimally. Plateau is natural; 1#/week is your body telling you "Great Work - we are close." You may not be "close" yet but your body will ebb and flow based on stress etc. Spinal stenosis is a stressor. This is not rocket science but it IS physiological science. Keep on keepin' on.

Update, still hanging in , so far lost 32lbs. I'll weigh tomorrow, hopefully a couple more off.

So far the epidural injection is a miracle. Everything still hurts like normal but the injection killed the nerve pain which was killin me. I hope it lasts a LONG time!!!

I'm lucky, where I live we have an indoor pool, so Doc has me walking in the water, I also bought some "fitness" fins and a boogie board so I can do flutter kick laps. All this is supposed to be great building core muscles around my back.

I have my yearly physical next week, hopefully everything will look good.

I appreciate the support here guys.

I do the calorie counting diet too. I try to stay at 1200 a day (but I have a cheat day of about 1700 calories 1 day a week) and exercise 3-5 days a week, usually walk 3-4 miles at a pretty fast clip (15mph) or ride a recumbent bike about 12 miles. Wanted to lose 35 lbs and have lost 25 so far. I will say this, the last 10 lbs is the toughest to lose.

I us My Fitness Pal and Map My Walk apps.

Good job, keep it up...and I will too.

This is great sir. One question: You mentioned 'usually walk 3-4 miles at a pretty fast clip (15mph)'. The average person walks 3.8 - 4.2 mph and world class sprinters have hit 18-20 mph. 15 mph on the recumbent is possible to sustain but I was curious about what you consider a "fast clip"?
