199 pounds


Recommended Posts

We are right on track!  200.4 this morning.  A few years ago Mernicle made me a set of holsters and a shotgun belt with two buckles.  So far I have been able to compensate for weight gains and losses.

Well done. I have lost 60# in a year. Started out at 285, down to 225, 20 to 25 more to go. When I get there I might change my alias to Little Sage.LOL!

Dropped 24 lbs on keto.
Fed up with handfuls of drugs for cardiac and diabetes conditions.

I'm down to my 1999 weight now.

40 lbs more to reach weight we we got married.

I dropped 30 lbs. the last couple of years and am back to College weight.  I've gotten to the point that I am often not hungry at meal time.  Since I don't want further weight loss, I have to eat anyway.  These things do come into balance most of the time.

I changed my diet a year and a half ago. Almost no carbs, hard boiled egg and fresh melon or fruit for breakfast, a small salad for lunch and dinner is pretty much normal....a small portion of meat, some veggies and fruit or salad. No deserts. But I still drink a beer now & then and a mixed drink when at a party or gathering of friends. I really don't feel hungry and will stay on this diet as it is pretty healthy. My weigh loss has averaged between 1 and 1 1/2 pounds per week.

Taking the keto burn and keto boosts supplements do curb my appetite along with at least 1/2 liter of water per hour.

I dropped 35 or so on keto in ‘19 pre surgery but 2 month recovery and sitting round gradually gained it back and then some.

I have a habit to binge eat under stress. Does not help.

I'd keep it.

It correctly reflects your long tall shadow!

I get hungry about this time in the afternoon (3:00).  I had breakfast at 8:00 with eight ounces of a 50%/50% OJ and apple juice, and then a piece of buttered toast at noon.  I drink a lot of Crystal light sweet tea all through the day.

 

I can hold off until 5:00 or so and then have a larger meal.  Tonight it's going to be baked salmon and a small half cob of boiled corn with butter and salt and pepper.

 

At nine I'll have ONE Oreo or ONE small snack sized York's patty or 3 Musketeers, then head for bed at 10:00/10:20.

 

It works for me and isn't all that much of a burden.

 

I woke up Thursday and weighed 200 even.  I went to breakfast with a mob of cowboy shooters.  If I make a goal I reward myself.  I had a chicken fried steak with hash browns and toast, coffee and OJ.  I left most of it on the plate.  My stomach just doesn't need as much to satisfy me now.

Okay, I didn't make the salmon.  Had a grilled Swiss cheese on white bread with a lot if butter and a glass of sweet tea instead.  Lots easier than the salmon.  I'll save that for maybe tomorrow evening.  Of course being single I might opt for blueberry pancakes. filet mignon. of spaghetti and meatballs.  Clam chowder doesn't sound bad either.  :P

My sincere congratulations and admiration to anyone having success on their weight loss journey.

 

I wrestled and played football in high school and college at 180 to 200 lbs - in fairly good shape at that weight for my height and build.

 

Broke my ankles in college and with inactivity began putting on weight - weight plus injury put on more weight - by my 30's weighed over 350lbs.  

 

Carried that burden for nearly 20 years until a combination of factors combined; my father got ill, my marriage began falling apart and I lost my long time job.

Stress is a bad thing but can do wonders for weight loss - I dropped down to 225 lbs; obviously not the same musculature as college but closer to the same weight.

 

I maintained that for about 3 years; then I tore up my knee and again - inactivity added pounds; then last year Covid hit and sick weight dropped but quickly rebounded with gusto - and then I broke my wrists.  And more weight added.

I am currently at 270 and trying to get back into the mindset of weight loss - without the stress diet method.

 

I will get there again; I realize how much my life is better when Im lighter (diabetes, blood pressure, intimacy) but doggone this is hard.

I hit 182 this morning.  Lightest I've been since 1965 when I graduated from college and got married....not counting a bout with malaria in 1968 that knocked me down to about 165.  I gained a lot of that back before June of 1969.

 

Saw my doctor lady and she says it's time for me to start rebuilding some meat and muscle now.  I have an appointment with a Physical Therapist later this week.

You are a fighter. I expect you to get back on track sooner than later.
