I'm 6' 0", starting weight 278.2 on April 1st. I'm a few pounds down already but I'm sure that's mostly water weight. Today I was at 267.6 . I'll try to go into a little more detail about my diet and exercise tomorrow. I'm not really cutting back any macro other than refined sugar. Still eating fat and carbs. I'm focusing on calories in vs calories out and walking, will start back into light weight lifting in a month or so too.

Feeling good this morning too, 265.9 which sounds like a lot, but I was hovering at 267.2 for several days. I guess after a few dumps the scale catches up all at once. I always weigh in dry with no water first thing in the morning.

I walk 100 miles per month it keeps me in shape and feeling good

Usually walk out the door around 6am. Walk a little over 3 miles each morning.

I will do that until December when it gets too cold, then chill out for a couple of months. Start back walking March.

Sometime in January / February I will hit the gym pretty hard

That a boy!!

I hit 240 after being down for a few months after a couple surgeries. Back riding bike and doing sandbag works outs. Big fan of sand bags, really easy to adjust weight.

Great results...... Keep it up.

I started the Keto diet on 1-3-21. Weighed a little over 240 something. I hit 215 about 2 weeks ago and that was more than I thought I would lose.

I am a loving father, a dog lover, and a reader of books. Check out a book called, " The little train that could." Thank me later.

My first step was to calculate my sedentary Metabolic rate without any activity modifiers. I visited several calculators and equations. I settled on the mayo clinic calculator. It had me at 2300 calories if I do nothing extra in terms of exercise.

https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/weight-loss/in-depth/calorie-calculator/itt-20402304

Second step was to get a myfitnesspall account and a food scale. Always verify the myfitnesspal caloric values in their database with the food scale and label. I set a target of a 300 calorie deficit per day, so 2000 calories. However I'm finding that I can keep myself full by eating 4 times a day and hitting around 1550 calories. I track everything, from every spoonful of half and half and squirt of ketsup. I find foods that I like that can feed me for 300-600 calories.

For instance I ate 2 little "swaggarty's" sausage biscuits this morning for 270 calories plus a coffee with 70 calories worth of creamer in it. I could have eaten better less fat and carb dense foods to get more full for the same calories but I am leaning towards flavor right now. When I start lifting weights I anticipate my appetite will increase and if that happens I might have to adjust my choices to get higher satiation (more full) per meal. Last night I had a Whataburger double junior hamburger for dinner, it was 430 calories, but that's it no sweet tea, no fries, just water with it.

I'd say the main thing I'm doing is counting and using artificial sweeteners in my coffee and other recipes.

Weight loss is a simple game. You simply exert (burn) more calories that you consume. I have been a bodybuilder for over 30 years and I still vary my winter and summer weight by 25 lbs. It is amazing how quickly one can lose weight by just eliminating sugar and alcohol and adding an extra workout day to your week.


You did what?

Sugar is the devil and they will put tons on it food we eat.

Alcohol is fine, just drink hard liquor I enjoy whiskey or blend of whiskeys, No sugar in most hard liquors. I do not drink beer anymore. The hard seltzers are zero sugar now of days, but I would rather have a whiskey/diet coke.

Funny you should mention sleep, it's a major component of my program! I have to get 6.5 hrs+, and it's been working out good.

Weight is coming off a little too fast right now, I think I'll up the calories to 1700.

263.9 today.

Going to start lifting a little weight May 3rd. Next week starting tomorrow, I'm going to walk through the plan everyday but just doing the 2 warm up sets per exercise and one kind of real set but not to failure. I better let the muscles know I'm coming or it could get ugly. grin
