Target Range 170 -175
Highest 210lbs (2002)

Now at 8 weeks in range. Mini-goal is to beat my 10 week run I achieved in the summer of 2009.

Great work this week racy and JB, keep up the good work, you're both making great progress.

It's a beautiful day here so we are heading out for a nice long bike ride, and will stop somewhere for lunch. Need to be back by 4 to play tennis with my son. Retirement definitely makes getting plenty of exercise a lot easier.
Thanks Alan! I'm getting out on the bike a lot more. Did my first 100 mile ride saturday in a long time. Have fun on your ride....

Goal 185
Making progress. Sticking to my piece of fruit for breakfast, cup of soup for lunch, a couple of Corona Light or Amstel Light beers after work, and one serving of whatever DW fixes for dinner. And, moved up on TromboneAl's nut list from peanuts to almonds for snacks.
Nice steady progress. Keep up the good work!

Tule fog all week, made it tough to get out on the bike. Looks like we'll have some clearing this week which will help.

DW has recently become certified as a hypnotherapist. She's hanging out her shingle, but I'm going to be test subject #1. She's started working with me on my weight issues. Just started, so no big news (lost 3 lbs in 2 weeks. Might be normal fluctuation). I'm definitely hypnotisable, but I need to see how the suggestions work vs. my deeply seated resistance to weight loss. Since she started I've been getting up in the morning 3 times/week and heading over to the pool for a 1/2 mile swim. That is one of the suggestions we came up with, and so far I've been pretty good about it. Not my usual behavior exercise-wise.

I'll pop in occasionally and let you know how it's going.
Popping back in.

I quit going to the pool when it got cold, then with the holidays (including both my and DWs birthdays) I fell off the wagon. However, since the start of the year I went through another hypnotherapy session, and this time I'm listening to the recording we made of the session almost every night. Seems to be working. I'm not as hungry, and definitely have more willpower regarding food choices. Since New Years I've gone from 242 to 235. Only 6 more lbs until I reach my first goal (becoming merely overweight ). I've also lowered my fasting blood glucose level from the low 200s to the 150s, and my BP has gone from 150/90ish to 120/70, although I attribute that more to starting using my Zona device again than weight or food choices. All in all, progress. See y'all in a month or three.

Congratulations on the blood sugar and blood pressure reductions no matter how you accomplished them! Those two health stats are some of the more important ones to watch.

I may have found part of my problem. I just discovered there's another food pyramid. I've been using this one.

Week Weight
5-Jan-11 214.2
12-Jan-11 208.4
19-Jan-11 206.4
26-Jan-11 202.6
1-Feb-11 198.2
Goal 183.0


I did some googling and have determined I am a 'large frame man', (well, I already knew I was a man...) thus my ideal weight and BMI get to be adjusted up. When I reach 190 lbs my BMI will be normal, not overweight. That's my next intermediate goal.

Where'd you find a copy of my personal food pyramid? I guess no amount of cycling will get the weight off until I move to a more sensible one......

Good news, that means you are into single digit territory to make your first target.
