    Okay, I'm at 197.5 today (Monday)--which is freaking odd, because yesterday morning I was at 192.6, and I monitored my calories and ate only about 2,200 yesterday, which is a maintenance amount for me (also ran 4 miles on Saturday and walked 2.5 yesterday).

    My goal is 185 and I've been working on it for about four years now, when I had a heart attack and was at about 217.

    The ugly part of this is that we're going to New Orleans in two weeks. I gained 7 pounds in 4 days last time I was there. I don't know how I'm going to avoid that.

    So after a long and crazy weekend of mexican food on vacation i'm getting started. 225 this morning and starting cross fit up again this afternoon. Shooting for 2200 calorie max per day.

    It's likely just water weight or scale placement - My wife's practice focuses primarily on working with anorexics and they tend to pump water before their check ins and can load about 5-7 lbs. Gets to the point she has to assign nurses to watch the kids eat and go to the bathroom and ration their water.

    If I could suggest one thing to all of you looking to lose weight, try intermitent fasting. It changed my life. Formerly 225 5'7", currently 169. Figured out IF around 185 and it shrunk me to 175 pretty quick.

    I tried IF in the springtime after hearing so many good things and it actually fit my schedule fairly easily. I don't know that I noticed any of the weight loss or increased energy benefits others talk about. I'd love to hear any suggestions and would be open to trying it again.

    Weighed myself this morning. 154.4. Shooting for 140-145. (Yeah, I know that sounds tiny, but I am pretty light-boned.)

    I don't know that I ever got the mental clarity or energy benefits either but one thing I do like is you typically have to worry less about food because you have less time in the day to eat it. Right now I'm doing 18/6, not counting calories or macros (being mindful but not actually tracking) with no exercise and maintaining my weight.

    I have no evidence that it works other than the results I experienced when I first tried it. I was being very health concious and working my a** off at the gym at the time but I had been doing that already and hit a plateau. Once I started IF the weight started coming off again.

    Do be careful of the no exercise thing. There's a thing called "skinny fat" and that's unhealthy, too. Y'all might've seen in the news recently that no exercise may be worse for you than smoking and other vices.

    Here's the direct link to the study:

    189 lbs this morning. After two weeks of travel EVERYTHING is fitting tight. Not happy about that.

    Would like to get down to 175. I need to start putting my meals in to My Fitness Pal and cut down on the beer drinking.

    Let's do this!
