I completely forgot to post in this thread. I've been a good boy and am now down to 203.8 as of Saturday. Chanin and I are off to Pittsburgh this weekend so all bets are off.

If you need any diet killing places let me know, I know them all in Pittsburgh

Thanks for the offer but we've been going to the Burgh for years now. I do know that I'll be getting some lobster tails from Wholley's on Saturday for dinner.

I made another post about intermittent fasting. I’ve been doing a 20/4 intermittent fast for 2 1/2 months and I’m down 28 lbs and 2 full pants sizes!

I've not had that kind of change but I also do 16/8.

 

 

Been working out more again recently partially because we are doing a weight loss thing at work

I’m still hanging in the high 160’s. I’ve been working out a lot more than when a first was started my fitness program. I’ve been pounding the steps and stairs as well. Averaging 15k steps and 11 flights of stairs a day on the year - and I work a sedentary job - I just make sure to walk five minutes for every hour spent sitting -

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

That's a lot of steps!  I had to climb a 130' water tower twice this past Monday, and my quads were screaming at me for the next two days.  Not much walking the rest of the day after the climb as I was driving for about 4 hours.  15k steps is really impressive!!

Down to 266.4 from 318 pre-covid. Keto is the sole reason for this. I also got a push cart a few weeks ago so I could start walking more often.
 

My goal was 250 before EOY and now I’m shooting for 235 by EOY. That would be my lowest weight since 1999 and I’d end up 83 pounds down this year.

Keto/Banting is the 💣. Been doing that for a year now and lost 10kg and have sooo much more energy. Tim Noake's Real Meal Revolution is great https://realmealrevolution.com/

Hey eb'one, what's going on?

This whole pandemic just killed me and I put on a bit of the weight I lost, so I jumped back on the horse of exercise a few weeks ago.

Along with the treadmill every morning I'm now doing strength exercises 4 days a week using a Total Gym. Believe it or not, those things are not a gimmick when they're set high. I have it set at about 2/3 from the top and by the time I'm done with my last reps it's a struggle. I've noticed my back pain is less than it usually is, so it seems like there's some benefit there.

How's it been going with you?

I've gone back to logging all my food via FitBit to check on calorie count and carbs/protein/fat breakdowns. Biking season is over for me at this point, and with the way things are I'm really not comfortable trying to get to the gym at the Y. Food intake has always been an issue with me, both the amount as well as the type. The last few months I've been working in our front room, which is also part of the kitchen with our open floor plan. Let's just say that the snacks in the cabinet have been eaten a lot quicker than usual recently. So with logging food it makes me conscious of both my choices as well as the amount.

I'll second the Total Gym comment, it's a real workout. I used it all last winter but regret putting it aside during the summer. Not sure what it did for my weight since I was primarily using it for strength training. 

Currently it's in Ohio, but I'm bringing it back to Florida when we go visit our new grandson.

If anyone is interested my vegan thread is showing some very promising results. Of course that style diet is not for everyone but even a few days a week I think will give you some great results.

I’m still same weight but I won’t go to the gym during the C19 mess. I have been going to the pool (3 of them close by) that are heated but still outside and doing what I can there. The pool has been great for my ailing knees.

I have been missing the pool at work and the gym in general 😭 will not be opening for a long time, most likely the last thing after cafeteria. Pool at lunch was a great getaway

My GP told me earlier this year to stay away from gym when it reopened. The pool has been great.

It’s tough for sure not going and having to make that decision because of course it’s riskier going there. My issue is the gym At work is free and 24/7, I am way to cheap to go pay for a membership 😂

I’m enjoying this virtual PT program through work. It’s not much of a workout but it sure helps the recovery between workouts.

It took a week but I got the thanksgiving weight off. 167.6 this morning, that’s at my target.

Gained a bit too much weight during Covid, probably about 15 pounds. Some of it muscle, some of it not. Would like to drop at least 10 pounds.
