    Rode 10 Miles on Birmingham Southside with the group tonight. Made it almost all the way to the top of Red Mountain. We stopped about 3 blocks short. The thing about riding with the group is you do things you wouldn’t normally do

    im saying 235 tomorrow.

    I've reached the point where the smell of food makes me nauseous. I think its the meds. I tried to eat today, could do it. Food smelled like used cat litter

    You don’t stand up enough! With all the potholes on Birmingham streets, a butt sure can take a beating! I’d never handle mountain bike trails.

    Doesn't make my 221.4 look that bad this morning.

    I really need to be around 180 but I'd take sub-200 and call it a win.

    I've stabilized at 238. Been sitting steady for a couple days but I've lost my appetite again so will see.

    220ish...depending on what day of the week. Typically on Mondays Iím 220.8 -221.4, by Wednesday 220-220.5, Th/Fr 219.5-220...

    Same thing for the last 6-8 weeks. If I knock off ice cream, and cookies I could get to 215 pretty quickly.... I love cookies and ice cream.

    Really not rocket science for most of us.

    Determine about how many calories you need for maintaining. Add calories you burn from exercise (but be careful--in my experience, the older we get, the less reliable that is. When I was younger, it worked great. Now it's not nearly as reliable. I figure Ĺ at best.)

    Then eat less than that. Every day.

    3500 calories = 1 pound.

    See if you have some reoccurring habits. Drink 2 coca-colas a day? That's 300 calories. Every two weeks, you've added a pound, unless you took it off somewhere else. Over the course of a year? That's 365 x 300 = 31 pounds.

    So if you're maintaining, but can cut out 2 soft drinks a day, over the course of a year, you can lose more than 30 pounds.

    Stuff like that.

    Of course, "stuff like that" is what I fail at miserably. My biggest issue is that I'll do well for awhile, and then go crazy for a few days in a row, or longer, and throw my hands up and give up. Thin mints in the pantry? That MIGHT last two days with me. I can eat a row of those sitting in front of the TV like nothing. One sleeve of them is almost 700 calories. I can't eat 2-4 cookies (80-160 calories). Give me the whole sleeve.

    I just lost 25 lbs for 2 weeks when I started walking 5 km per day.

    I cut out all the stuff years ago and it hasn’t reallydone anything. I can’t even fast and lose weight. Haven’t had a soft drink in over two years.

    I can usually knock off 15-20 lbs in a twelve week period by eliminating sweets and exercising for 20-30 minutes five days a week. The hard part, as Darrell pointed out above, is keeping it off. Iím currently off of my exercise routine and while Iíve moderated my sweets intake Iím still gobbling away at whatever I want.

    I think tomorrow evening Iím going to throw a couple dozen chicken wings on the grill, and slather them down with a sugar based homemade bbq sauce. I also picked up a few ears of sweet corn that Iíll boil up and drown in butter and salt, along with some Mac and cheese. For dessert, I noticed the Mrs. has an orange crush bunt cake sitting in the counter.... fortunately Iím active enough during the summer months to keep those calories at bay.

    For me itís about discipline, if I were to sustain diet and exercise on regular basis I imagine I could get to that elusive 210-200...

    220.0 this morning. I'll start feeling better when it drops below 215.
