Doing great Tubbers! I'm back at 212! I took the summer off and ate whatever I want and however much I wanted. Oh well, gives me a new goal to get back down to 203!
You can do it. I'm gonna flip when I hit the 190's. My doctor will really be impressed in October.glassynails wrote: ↑Fri Aug 18, 2017 8:31 pmDoing great Tubbers! I'm back at 212!

I had a bit too many carbs this past week or two. Bread and rice mainly. Tut tut.glassynails wrote: ↑Sat Sep 02, 2017 6:54 amI seem to always hit a lull at about 200 nowadays. I don't exercise much so that must be my problem. I think right now I'm at 210 maybe. I can get down to 202 or so with diet alone in about a month or two. To get to 195 I think I have to get going on the exercise at least a few days a week or more.
Thanks. The weight went back on because I've been eating a lot of crap all summer and drinking soda.DCGillrich wrote: ↑Mon Sep 04, 2017 9:59 pmGlassynails - Have you thought about the intermittent diet or so called 5:2 diet. It has been around for some time, and mainly aims to reduce calorie intake without getting overwhelmed with hunger pains. There are several serious studies on the intermittent diet, including Dr. Krista Varaday of the University of Chicago (https://ahs.uic.edu/kinesiology-nutriti ... dy-krista/). The 5:2 diet was popularized by Dr Michael Mosley in a UK television series (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/03 ... ories-day/). I think you can watch the series online. Quite a few people I know, including my wife, have tried it successfully. Of course, [genuinely] cutting back calories should reduce weight as long as nothing else is going on (e.g. thyroid). But, after loosing weight, going back to a maintenance diet is not enough--somehow the body over reacts, and the weight starts to go back on again. Good luck with your weight loss journey.
PS--I love some of your stuff on YouTube as a benchmark for my own, rather limited, playing ability.
That'll do it.
I never have.
