I'm 5'11" and 200 pounds.  That site says I should be 157.9  :D (27% overweight) and my BMI is 27.9.   I've been down to 190 and feel great there, my ultimate goal is 185 and that site says I'd still be 17% overweight.

If I ever weigh my IDBW, I would be worried.   :)  at least BMI gives a range.  this is why this is hard.  if you are feeling lean and mean, that is important.  hard to know muscle mass and frame size.  i will never weigh 145 unless God forbid i get cancer or something.  go for a weight that feels good.  more if you have health issues.  i last felt good at 160 a few years back (prep to hike in the mountains at Philmont scout ranch at age 56).

looks like just under 180 would get you to below the upper limit of BMI.  remember, IBW is what doctors think/studies show would be healthy in terms of blood pressure ect.  If you are a hard worker, then you may have a higher muscle mass.  thin Asian folks do not get heart disease like we do, but die from cancer.  till they move here and adapt to our diet!  no one lives forever.

Absolutely! Makes a difference if your moving some iron or good physical workout and have some muscle mass.

healthy in terms of blood pressure ect.
 
Just gave Platelets this morning and I get my mini-physical.  My BP is 100/64, pulse 64 - so I'm in "good" shape.  I've been working 7 days a week doing manual labor for the past 3 or 4 weeks.  If I get stressed in traffic going to donate, my BP might be 120/72.  I've had my pulse as low as 50 but I made them take it again as that is the cutoff for donating.

well we had cod in the air fryer last pm, so hopefully we will trend in the lower direction soon.  I was 178 yesterday, but back up a little today.  Jeff you are the weight loss poster child!   8)

I thought it was great.  my wife had trouble with the air fryer and keeping the breading on.  fresh cod (from the store) soaked in buttermilk, and breaded.  she baked a potato for her and a sweet potato for me.  She felt like the cod had no flavor, but I think she meant the breading had fallen off in places.  when we met, she really was not a seafood fan.  so I had a slightly bigger piece, and I got the 2nd half of her piece.  She is getting acquainted with the Noom app, and likes that.  early in the day she was worried she would run out of calories and be hungry.  but that did not happen.  This morning she is down 2 pound and I am up,  it is a conspiracy! 8).  she has done basic stuff in the air fryer.  still getting up the learning curve.  I think turning the cod, knocked off some of the breading.  thanks for your help Jeff

Cod is more difficult to cook than thinner fillets. Be sure to preheat the air fryer. This will help get the outside done quickly and secure your coating. Don't try to turn to early.  For my fish I pat dry first. Important. Then season. (Lawreys season salt here of late) Then dredge in flour. Then dredge in a beaten egg with a touch of milk, then lay it in your planko bread crumbs, coating one side, pick it up and lay it down again coating the other side, then place on your fryer racks. Give then a spritz of pam cooking spray,  6 minutes on one side, 6 on the other. For cod, you may want to increase the time before you turn it, then watch it.  I have the perch fillets down to a science!

This morning. 227.6 lbs.   80lbs removed!  Picked up a pair of 36 waist jeans last week and tried them on Friday to see if I was getting close. They fit perfectly.  So, down from 46 waist to 36. I've not been a 36 for 40 years.  I'm only 7.6 lbs from my original goal of 220, but I've changed that to no specific number. It will be what it will be, but it will diffidently be below 220.

I feel good because of the weight but have been doing some things over the last several months to reduce my stress, which included walking away from things like hosting websites that require high levels of security and email needs (beyond this one). Having to be responsible for so many critical things for others 24/7/365 for years with no ability to have someone relieve my mind for even a day, I firmly believe that stress was killing me.  Staying busy with physical activities where my mind can be free has been life saving.

Well my wife has been doing the Noom thing.  she has lost about 5 pounds in a week.  I am consistently under 180 now, as it helps we are both working on not overeating.  we even went to a crawfish boil on Saturday and she kept track of stuff so no setback due to a party.  I have been doing a ton outside and staying more active than normal.  Georgia just weighed and has lost 6.6 pounds in a week.  not Hungary, feeling good and thinking about food in a new way.  hardest thing is figuring out what to do with an extra 70 calories at the end of the day.  she likes the jolly rancher firestix as a reward.  I am at 177.  thanks Jeff for helping us get started.

Ya know what I do with my extra calories? Add them to the weight loss. :)  unless I'm hungry, and that's not really an issue.  She should be happy with that much in a week for sure!

she says she figured out she was eating 3 times the calories without even thinking about it.  she is a runner so maintained her wt.  running is easier.  I have 17 to go and she has about 8.  we will also see how we feel at those wts and adjust/continue to eat smart and see what happens.

The Friday report.

This morning I am at 224.1 lbs  less than 5 lbs from my original goal of 220.

When I started this I was serious  and determined, but honestly in my mind had doubts. No more doubts. I'm very comfortable and happy with the new eating style we have. I'm more active than I have been for many years.

Yesterday evening Tammy said the last time I looked like this was when we got married, 40 years ago. I am actually in a mode where I'm contemplating when and how to stop loosing.  I really eat all I want now. Cooking has become a favorite thing, and sharing or helping others to find the way I found is fulfilling. I'm trying not to be the guy that preaches you need to do this or stop doing that, but try to be ready and eager to help others with what I've learned if they ask. And I am. :)

Onward to 222!
