    I hope no one minds me getting the thread going this week:


    1/4 = 396.2
    1/11 = 388.2
    1/18 = 385.0
    1/25 = 388.4
    2/1 = 379.4
    2/8 = 373.4
    2/15 = 372.6
    2/22 = 366.6
    3/1 = 366.0
    3/8 = 364.0
    3/15 = 357.8
    3/22 = 356.8
    3/29 = 351.4
    4/5 = 348.4
    4/12 = 351.4
    4/19 = 346.6
    4/26 = 343.0
    5/3 = 343.8
    5/10 = 340.0
    5/17 = 336.8
    5/24 = 340.0
    5/31 = 344.6
    6/7 = 334.2
    6/14 = 333.4
    6/21 = 332.0
    6/28 = 333.8
    7/5 = 321.6
    7/12 = 316.4
    7/19 = 321.0
    7/26 = 310.6
    8/2 = 312.6
    8/9 = 307.4
    8/16 = 305.8
    8/23 = 297.6
    8/30 = 298.8
    9/6 = 300.0
    9/13 = 294.8
    9/20 = 291.2
    9/27 = 294.0
    10/4 = 286.8
    10/11 = 290.6
    10/18 = 279.8
    10/25 = 288.0
    11/1 = 279.2
    11/8 = 278.6
    11/15 = 280.2
    11/22 = 275.8




    I'm finally on my way back to normalcy. Unfortunately, I got the ship righted just in time for the Thanksgiving Holidays. Now I'm not totally worried, because I did quite well during the holiday season last year, dropping weight over Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. However I was just starting out on the path to a healthier lifestyle. I suspect it will be a little more difficult this year. I can do it though. I know I can.

    I posted this reading to last week's thread, but I'll repeat it in its proper place.....

    I'll skip the records going back to 2006 this time. I'm tipping the scales at 291.10, down about three pounds over three weeks. This is an evening weigh in; had I taken it in the morning, it might have been lower.

    My eating has been off the chain since I last posted. I don't handle stress well, and the next six weeks at work in my line of business are like April 14 to accountants. Also I've been trying to get my plan to ride cross country in May off the ground, and I've been helping a friend with some personal problems. I felt like my head was going to explode last week.

    That said, I've picked up the exercise a bit, getting in 13 and 15 mile rides with Sayre, a 3.5 mile hike with him, a couple of solo seven mile sprints, and short walks. The next week includes hiking, riding, and what could be my first 5k run/walk. (Strike "could be" and insert "will be" - Sayre threatened to hit me with his timpani mallets if I don't.)


    Oh, and two more points:

    1.) because my broken rib is almost completely healed, I can resume lifting. I gave up on the gym a few months ago; getting back into strength training would pay big dividends.

    2.) I'm now celebrating four years of maintaining a weight loss of more than 100 pounds. True, I was down 158 at my peak, but till I get back there I'll celebrate what I got, because I live every day. Bartender, celery for everybody! :-)

    Up again, but I got back on the exercise bike again last night. I think part of the problem as of late is I've been staying up too late. I get feeling tired, so I eat something in hopes of it pepping me up, but really it's not helping. Also, in addition to the cold weather making me want to eat more, I've been letting myself get too hungry before dinner. It might be the time change, but I've been caught too late getting home and by the time I get dinner I end up overeating. I really need to knock that out and ride that exercise bike more often than 2x a week. Ok this week I'll ride more which helps me feel less stressed and eat less.

    I've been struggling lately but really got back on track over the weekend. From an all-time low in August of 299.8, I'm now back at 320. I'd really like to drop below 300 again before end of the year, so I'm going to work hard at it. 1,800 daily calorie goal, good workouts every day.

    Haven't weighed myself in a few weeks - I don't like to jinx it. Decided to weigh in at the gym after my morning commute, and was surprised by the results, so I did a quick check to make sure the scale was zero-calibrated. At this point, I only have two more potential goals left - to get sub-200 and become a Clyde-Emeritus, and to hit 194, and get my BMI under 25. Neither of these goals motivate me nearly as much as just how good it feels to be a normal-sized human again.

    Highest weight: 304.5 on 5/17/04

    Skip ahead though multiple losses and gains to this April when I got serious:

    4/5 - 264.5
    4/12 - 262
    4/19 - 259
    4/26 - 258
    5/3 - 257.5
    5/10 - 252
    5/17 - 252.5 (oops)
    5/24 - 249 (Woo Hoo! Breaking 250 is a big milestone for me.)
    5/31 - 246.5
    6/7 - 245
    6/14 - 242
    6/21 - 241.5
    6/28 - 238.5
    7/5 - 236.5
    7/12 - 234
    7/19 - 236 (oops)
    7/26 - 231.5
    8/2 - 230
    8/9 - 231 (oops)
    8/16 - 226
    8/21 (new weigh-in day) - 226 <damn!>
    8/26 - 225.5
    9/4 - 221.5
    9/11 - 221.0
    9/18 - 218.5
    9/25 - 217
    10/2 - 219 (oops)
    10/9 - 224.5 (vacation - lots of Texas BBQ and pie)
    10/16 - 217.5
    10/23 - 217.5
    10/30 - 215.5
    11/6 - 218.5
    11/13 - 215
    11/20 - 214.5

    Two weekly losses in a row - I had almost given up on seeing that again after my performance during October. I know a half pound isn't much, but I'm glad anyway. Now we'll see how the combination of Thanksgiving and the start of my gym regimen affects things.

    Your last sentence made my day. Thanks. What a wonderful thought.

    Doesn't WW teaching discuss plateaus, CraigB? It looks like you were in one.

    Official weigh in with nutritionist isn't until Friday, but home scales have me hovering over the 200lb mark. I'm thinking that either this week or next I have to wave goodbye to you all.

    Congrats to all who've made progress this week.

    And to JonnyHK, once a Clyde, always a Clyde, at least in our hearts. Those with Emeritus status are always welcome. Heck, if for no other reason than we need you here to show the rest of us it can be done!

    And to Neil re: my plateau, yes, WW does talk about the concept, and the physiological causes for it, though in my own case it was largely a combination of a) some poor food choices, b) a vacation and c) the transition to cold weather and its effect on my level of physical activity. I can't say with any honesty at all that I stayed on the straight and narrow for that month, and the lack of progress was due to nothing but metabolic issues. That kind of plateau I've not yet hit, though I don't know which would be worse, frankly - I can understand the underlying frustration in doing all you should and still not seeing the weight come off, but at the same time, knowing you're defeating yourself messes with your mind just as badly, if in a slightly different way.

    But, hey! I'm good now! Motivated anew, with the first week of gym membership under my belt, with spinning classes, some balance/flexibilty routines, moderate resistance training, and off-nights at home on the elliptical. I think I may be burning more calories now than I did in the summer.

    Seem to have flatlined here lately. Little to no riding doesn't help me at all.

    You've lost 25 lbs in 4 months. Be proud of your accomplishments. Staying at your new weight for a few months wouldn't be a bad thing, would it?

    Not at all. Not complaining. I wanna ride but a new job and that whole dark thing cramps my style. Riding does more for me than weight loss. As long as the number doesn't begin to climb I'm OK. Think I might hit the C&O or GAP a bit this weekend.

    You are not rid of me yet.

    Official weigh in with nutritionist was 201lb. Scales at home are just a little bit hopeful.

    Maybe next week if my overseas work trip doesn't cause a bit of a blow out (it's a conference...Danger Will Robinson, Danger!).

    Overseas? Try new foods and walk around exploring a new place. Should balance out if you pay attention.
