    I'm down to 232 from 245 on 7/18/19 (last time I weighed at this Dr appt). Face looks leaner which is definitely a plus.

    Up to 207 lbs from 203. My lifts are getting stronger but I will probably have to do a couple of days of a stricter/more controlled diet to see if i deflate a bit.

    I dipped into the 160's. Shift work is a jerk.

    Although on a happy note, i think i finally saw an ab poking through the blubber. I may be on the road to "raving weight" sooner than expected.


    (next year's photo threads are going to be epic, but not because i'm gonna look good....we've just got ridiculous stuff on the agenda and i CAN'T FRAKKIN WAIT!!!)

But they were talking with the guest about how they handle the craft service table and, more generally, food in the workplace. And the guest (who's name escapes me) apparently struggles some with weight, and she said something to the effect of "for people that over-eat, everything is an occasion." The idea being that indulgent/unhealthy foods are something that shouldn't be eaten regularly. I think this is something that most everyone who wants to lose weight is aware of, but it's easy for those same people to slip into bad eating habits by thinking that anytime someone brings food into work (for instance), that in and of itself is a special occasion that should be celebrated by eating some of said food.

    I know this isn't some revolutionary concept, as it essentially just boils down to the basic premise of "quit eating so much unhealthy food", but just the way it was framed up sort of clicked with me. I work in a big office and it's kind of helped me resist the free indulgent food that often finds its way into our break areas. Just figured I'd share in case it helps anyone else.
    Your post reminded me of when I used to do stricter paleo and did the Whole 30 a couple of times after football (watching) season ended. The article linked here was a good reminder not only for Halloween candy (which I rarely eat), but for fast food and things like holiday parties.

    Jumped back into the low 180s. This is likely hydration related vs. any real weight loss. Just finished a 60 mile running week for my upcoming race and my body feels great. This whole making sure I sleep enough thing is likely the reason. No more alarms set to get a morning run in.

    I'm starting to chunk up again. With summer on the downswing, my level of activity is decreasing too. No more 140k bike rides to burn those calories. Last time on the scale I was 175lbs. Need to watch the caloric intake. No more mid-week sugars and definitely cut back on the booze - again!

    The two great six pack killers. You know I'm off the alcohol wagon (basically sugar) but the sweets are tough to resist come winter. My progress has come from simply cutting out whole areas of my diet. It's hard to make multiple decisions a day regarding what you will and won't eat or drink. If you just have a policy "I don't eat cookies anymore unless I"m on vacation" for example, it seems to be easier to keep the calories in check. YMMV

    Cutting out alcohol, and increasing my veggies/fruits, while maintaining 160-200g of protein per day has dropped me from 190 last winter to 172 now. It was hard (but getting sober wasn't the easiest thing either) but maintaining it now has been thus far relatively straightforward if not out and out easy.

    Edited to add: You can also try intermittent fasting. Very helpful, but probably wise to check with a healthcare professional before you start.

    I've tried a 24 hour fast once a week for the past couple of months. Man, Day 1 is tough. You can usually get by breakfast without a problem but the middle of the day is a bear until you are over the hill then dinner is just around the corner. I feel this has been helpful at times but other times it has caused me to binge which has the opposite effect.

    Also, I break the fast depending on the day and stress. For instance, last Friday was a fasting day but the emails came early along with the calls so I stopped at 10a. Today is a fasting day and shouldn't be too much of a problem unless a lot of problems spring up out of nowhere.

    Oh man. In my line of work, we get vendors dropping off TONS of sweets come Christmas time. Then the outlaws start coming by with sweets, Christmas baking...The sweets never end!

    I took the summer off from any serious weight loss. I was exercising like crazy and I could pretty much eat what I wanted. Now that winter is on the way (damn you old man winter) my level of activity will drop a bit. So my need to get rid of the sugars and the booze. Both are pretty bad health wise. And once January hits, I'll be dry for January. Heck, I may even leg it out until April like I did this year!
