I weighted 223 this morning.  I am going to have to get packing to stay ahead of you.

223 is a very sleek and lethal round in ballistics!  thanks for joining us @WDH.  I am hovering around 180 today as I am on a 5 day work stint.  always harder but trying to eat the same at work.  My wife was up 0.4 yesterday, but down less today.  great success to all, and anyone in the background feel free to jump in, or just follow if you want.  @Jeff  had inspired us and we are having success.  I started at 190 and have certainly kept the 10 pounds off.  Hydration and BMs can cause some day to day fluctuations.  I always weigh first thing in the morning after an empty bladder!  My wife's sister started noom yesterday.

Gentlemen! This will be my first post, as I feel it is the only topic on the forum that (for now) I have some expertise in. I played hockey growing up, juniors after high school and a year of college hockey as well before injuries forced 'retirement'. After I concluded my final season, I put on about 20 pounds a month, until I hit almost 300 which at 22 years old and 6' tall is not a flattering look. Over the past 13 months I have lost 134 pounds and currently sit at 162 pounds, back at fighting weight. I can say from years of experience in the gym and working with different diets that it truly is pretty simple. My biggest tip to you all; completely cut processed sugars if possible, natural sugars only. Aside from that, most diets have some pretty serious kickback if/when you go off of them, causing weight to come back terrifyingly fast. On that note, I recommend normal diet, but counting calories to make sure your output is higher than your intake, and drink 1-2 gallons of water a day! No need for anything crazy, just an active lifestyle with a healthy amount of calories, no matter where you get them!

Also a quick side note, I use Whoop for my food/calorie tracking. A small monthly fee gets you a watch that tracks not only exercise and calories, but also monitors resting heart rate and sleep patterns, and can monitor any health issues you may have. No pun intended, but just some food for thought haha!

Last night I found some frozen squash in the freezer. Watcha going to do with the squash Tammy says. I dunno I says.

This morning it was thawed and I was inspired. I may have invented my best recipe yet!  I ran it through  recipe analyzer and its really low calorie and healthy, and best of all it turned out perfect when I had no clue if it would. I just added stuff but kept track of what this time. I'm  really pleased with this and pleasing myself is almosted impossible.  I used the airfryer on bake. 350 for 20 minutes, switching trays at 10. No reason you cant use an oven. You can leave out the sugar as its just a sprinkle of brown before you bake, and a sprinkle of white powdered after.

Give the cookies a spray of pam before you bake, and bake on sprayed foil.

I present to you my friends, Squashed Breakfast cookies!

Thanks to Jeff I started noom Tuesday. After 4 days i lost 4#. 
I was stuck at 241 for 3 weeks. found out I was eating too many calories on the low carb diet. 

I like the noom meal/calorie tracker but the psyco stuff is a bit too much 

Anyone using a good calorie tracker app?

I see WDH snuck in there and he is doing well !!

some will loose fast and some slow.  can hit a wall.  I am at 180.  work vs home working at the shop, sawmill yard.  at least I am maintaining 180 down from 190.  My wife doing Noom is helping me as I pattern after her, eating proportionately.  At work eating salad for lunch, eggs for breakfast.

I got a message from from my nephew who had bariatric surgery probabl 10 years ago. And is struggling right now. I tried to dig down and give him what I feel is MY answer to what he asked.
Quote
So whats your secret with losing all this weight? What all are you doing? I have really been struggling lately with my weight. I've gained a lot during this stay at home  crap started. I really need help . I'm trying to use you as inspiration to lose weight. You have to be feeling awesome after losing that much weight!

Keeping track of everything that goes in my mouth and keeping under 1400 calories a day. I dont drink calories other than a small glass of 1% milk 2 or 3 time a week. Drink water. Drink coffee. Drink tea. Dont drink calories!! Dont drink diet anything.  Get your head right. Why are you eating? Boredom? Find something to do. Stress? Get rid of the stress. What ever it is. Who ever it is, dump it. Ive walked away from over half of my business  because it was killing me.  Eat because you are hungry. Give your dog(s) the last couple bites. Hungry? Eat! But don't eat until you are full. Eat until you are satisfied. By tuning into the food, taste, smell, appearance,  it will add everything and more you think you might lose with smaller portions. Smaller portions in time start looking larger and larger as your body and mind embrace what you are doing. Especially your mind!

Dont clean your plate because you should. The last bite is so boring compared to the first bite. The middle bites are mindless chewing. Clean it if you are hungry. Get more if you are hungry.

Think about what you are eating. Before, during and after. enjoy the process. Look forward to it. Design your meals! Plan them  but be flexible. Be the king, not the slave of how you look at food. Remove the love hate from everything you can. Make eating well your job. Its the best paycheck you can get with great fringe benefits and you will grow to be friends with your boss.

You can do it. Think before you eat. Smile and enjoy the process. YOU CAN DO IT.

Thanks for asking Matt8

 8) Jeff you are spot on. I will not pretend it's easy advice to follow but is is true.  I really like seeing you posting pictures sawing with your mill, you are feeling better  and it shows through.

I may get to the 200-teens prematurely. I had a root canal this morning. Turns out im part of the minority that has double rooted teeth. 2 root canals, one tooth, and it aint feeling good. I doubt I get to feeling like eating today.

Week 14   233#  28.4# lost. 

Since I started logging calories, I have doubled the rate of loss. I started logging with the Noom app but have switched to the Lose It! app.
The Lose It! app logs calories and weight with no frills, which I like, and it is FREE.   :)

I dont think Ill try the weight loss accelerator like Jeff.  smiley_tom_dizzy01 smiley_ignore

I reached my original goal yesterday, and again today, so I'll make it official.

220.2 lbs. WITH PANTS STAN! :D

That's 87lbs.  

Last night seemed like a food extravaganza to celebrate, and it was, but because of why, not of what.  Strawberry shortcake. I can eat anything I want. I am the driver.  :)

That is awesome Jeff!  I would lose 87 lbs. just to eat strawberry shortcake if I could.    :D 8)  Unfortunately, I don't want to face diabetes so the best I can do is my no carb strawberry ice cream. :D  Great milestone accomplishment!  Kudos and high 5's. smiley_thumbsup

I was going to refrain from an update already, but this was a big milestone,  so this one is for me but I really hope it helps someone. In the teens, passed my original goal, and only a little over a pound from 90 lbs lost.

Next stop? Who knows.

You're at a point Jeff where you need to replace every pound lost with a pound of rocks in a backpack.  You're already floating on air.   :D :D :D  We don't want you to blow away.
