  • Woohoo! Hit my goal wait of 170!!! I've been hovering around the 170 ~ 172lbs mark lately, but I seem to be stabilizing. Hope you guys are hitting your goals too. Cheers.

    • Congrats [MENTION=13399]DocDave[/MENTION] ! I got into the 50K I was waitlisted for so my running will increase over the next couple of months as well as terrain. I will be focusing more on trails than roads so it will be a nice change. 5 years since I ran a 50K...goal is to beat my last time, slightly different course, but have learned quite a bit since last time.

      • Congrats [MENTION=13399]DocDave[/MENTION]! Glad to see folks seem to be doing well.

        Been quite a while since I checked in. In the past six weeks, I've made a cross-country move and started a new job. I was sure that a road trip with lots of BBQ and beer, along with stress eating being in a new city, would hold me back, but I came in at 165 today! That's 8.5 down from when I left my gym back in VA, and down 30(!) from the end of January.

        Things that are helping: my new bike commute is 7.5 miles one-way, so that gives me ~75 miles/week. I've done some mountain biking and big hikes on weekends too. I am also not coordinating meal plans with my SO, so it's been a little easier to keep protein up and carbs down.

        Here's the thing: I am not quite sure where to stop. I had told myself 160-165 would be a good range, but arriving here... I assumed I would look better than I do! Not super close to defined abs or anything. On the other hand, I fit nicely into 32/30 pants and slim fit mediums again, and feel fit enough to tackle a long ride or high elevation hike. Putting more into purely aesthetic goals feels kind of vain, especially if it's just for me and my mirror to appreciate. How do others handle this?

        • Thanks @elpenguinologo Feels good. Actually stepped on a scale last night and I was 169.4

          Nothing fits anymore. I had to buy a new bathing suit, and to get the free shipping I threw in a pair of light weight chinos. So at least now I'll have one pair of pants that fit.

          • Still hovering in the 200-205 lb range. I will probably remain her for the short to mid-term future. I started my novice lifter program and have been putting on some muscle, so I am pretty happy.

            • I'm sticking around the 170 - 173 range right now. Hopefully I'm able to maintain that weight throughout the summer too.

              • Just got back from vacation which was pretty meat heavy with little vegetables. Got out on a trail run today for 12 miles and felt really strong so I am ok with whatever weight I am at.

                Current issue has only affected my weights routine which is a weirdly sore rotator cuff on my non-dominant shoulder. It started after side sleeping and was exacerbated over vacation to the point where picking up my kids was tough. Going to do some PT work on it and see what happens.

                • Today's diet. A BIG bacon sandwich. Many handfuls of trail mix, some wine gums, and a bottle of root beer. All I have to say is the bike ride after work tonight better be a full on workout!

                  • I am thinking we need a lunches thread [MENTION=13399]DocDave[/MENTION] . I'd love to see what others are eating. Lately mine has been a quinoa bowl at work. Make some quinoa then chill, add some olive oil and lemon juice or balsamic, load it up with raw veggies, add some protein. I tend to enjoy chicken with mine but am open for other options.

                    It is delicious and keeps me satisfied for a while.

                    I laugh when some people on diets say they have a salad then when you see the salad it doesn't look diet friendly. Loaded up with dressing and way more added calories than needed.

                      My post would be extremely boring. Everyday, it's the same.
                      Breakfast: Eggs, Cottage cheese with diced tomatoes and pepper
                      Midmorning Snack: Cheese or nuts, an apple, and a protein shake
                      Lunch: Beef or chicken and rice, a few carrots
                      Midday snack: Beef or chicken and rice, a few carrots
                      Dinner: Different low carb meals made by the wifey.

                      Boring, but that's what it takes.

                        I'm sure some people live a little on this board. Like you, breakfast and lunch are pretty much the same while dinner is a mixed bag.

                          Oh, for sure. Dinners are killer. Tonight's is green chili chicken enchiladas, and NorCal Margaritas.

                          • My meal planning is all over the map... sometimes I am very consistent, sometimes not.

                            Breakfast is usually a protein shake (i.e. just protein powder in water). Sometimes with a piece of PB toast or a banana if I've worked out in the morning.
                            Lunch varies but is usually a turkey or ham sandwich with a piece of fruit. If I don't bring lunch to work I try to get something reasonably healthy with protein and veggies like a bowl from Chipotle or sushi. Today I was home for lunch and made a chocolate blueberry banana protein smoothie (two scoops chocolate protein powder, a banana, a cup of frozen blueberries, a handful of ice, a cup of milk).
                            Dinner varies widely. Recently I like to have a baked sweet potato with a little sour cream and brown sugar, roast some veggies like broccoli or carrots, and chicken or a small steak. Sometimes I just get a thin crust pizza with BBQ chicken or spinach and veggies. Sometimes I am REALLY lazy and just make PB toast or oatmeal or something. Sometimes I slip off the rails and have a pint of Ben & Jerry's.

                            I don't really snack much between meals other than maybe an apple or banana.

                            • Breakfast 6:00 am today was Steel cut Oats with unsweetened almond milk, one small bit of chocolate for flavor, chocolate protein powder and organic peanut butter. Really keeps me going easily until noon.

                              • I don't know how y'all eat protein powder in oatmeal. It never tastes good and the texture is almost sawdust like.
