My new PS3 MOVE system will help me get it all toned up. Especially the Gladiator game...I expect Mr B will start being ever more "super nice" to me as I get better at that game.
See the "What did you do today thread" for details about the MOVE system.

So you all don't think I've gone on an eating binge, let me say you are going to see my weight do some strange things over the next few months. I'm having some medical treatments that in the long run usually result in weight gain due to water retention. Hopefully I'll be able to get it off afterwards, but I can't worry about it too much right now. Still gonna track it, though!

183 April 25 - I'm up to 30 reps with the resitance band leg lifts. I've played virtual ping pong on my PS3 almost every day. Methinks I have a fun (important!) exercise routine going, one I might actually stick with.

Short Term Goal - 175 lbs and maintaining all through 2012
Long Term Goal - 170 lbs for 2013
High school weight 135 lbs senior year, running track

Good Luck with your treatments ! Put your weight loss on the back burner and just concentrate on getting well . Besides those maxi dresses that are so popular hide a lot just add sparkly sandals and you are good to go !

A bit late for Wednesday but I was flying home from California Wednesday and forgot about this thread. When I weighed myself on arrived home I was at 174.5 - up about 2 pounds. But I am back to 172.4 this morning which is where I was when I left two weeks ago so maybe I just added some water or a maybe a pound. I ate quite a bit more carbs on the trip than I have been eating but I still tried to keep them down to a large degree. I ate a lot of breakfasts that included hash browns and toast but I restricted myself to about 1/3 the hash browns and one slice of toast. Sauces and salad dressings probably contained a bit of sugar, and I ate some rice and potatoes I would not have included at home. All and all I think I was above the amount of carbs I would like in a long term maintenance diet. I would probably drift up a bit if I ate like that all the time. The good news is that it should be easy to stay lower on a maintenance diet.

I am happy for myself. A middle aged guy still has similar weight almost 30 years ago.

Despite a stupendous splurge at a Mario Batali restaurant in NYC Saturday night my LCHF diet continues to deliver. I was at 169.4 this morning, back at my college weight. I started counting (or sorta counting) calories out of simple curiosity (I don't pay any attention when eating and choosing foods). I think I am substantially under 2000 C a day so I am probably quite a bit below what my former diet delivered. The difference is all carbs. Whatever, I still have no issues with hunger or cravings. I don't think I could up my calories if I tried without adding a bunch of the empty carbs I have no cravings for.

That is awesome! How cool to be at your college weight. That is a great accomplishment.

I am also at my college weight but unfortunately my body does not look the same as then . Things seem to have shifted when I wasn't looking .
