Good for you. You threw the brakes on your downward slide a lot faster than I did. My summer culminated with a diagnosis of insulin resistance (and Pre-diabetes) which explained the horrific fatigue I was experiencing. I got way radical with intervening on those issues about 2 weeks ago and I've seen a bit of improvement. In 2 weeks I start crossfit hopefully.

1-2 pounds per week (and once/week is about as often as you should be weighing yourself) is a healthy weight loss. Forget that Biggest Loser crap, it's completely unrealistic for the real world. See how many of those contestants have kept all the weight off, once they leave the ultra-controlled environment of 6-7 hours of working hour per day, no work or other obligations, and having all their meals cooked for them. Hint: the percentage is very low.

Oh, increase fiber intake. It makes you feel full so you don't overeat and it also helps you pass out unwanted stuff... hence, less dead weight inside you.

^^ Ah good one. My wife's got me eating Fiber1 and Kashi GoLean (the generic version) cereal for breakfast everyday. It's not bad and helps me get a good dose of fiber early in the day. General daily fiber rule is 1 gram for every pound you weigh (that's a LOT more than most people eat).

I can't imagine eating that much fiber... I eat about half what I am supposed to eat and I am already... exploding....

Here is an easy guide to lay off the worst foods for you, wight wise.

I call it the Six C diet.

No Cookies
No Cokes (or any soft drinks, even diet)
No Cake
No Chips
No Candy
No Coors (or any beer or alcohol)

These are the kinds of foods that really put the pounds on you (sugar is the devil). Quit eating all of them for three months and see what happens (and keep working out).

You have my respect and encouragement. One can stop smoking, one can stop drinking alcohol, but no one can stop eating and that's what makes it insidious.

Keep going!

Agreed. The biggest issue I had was knowing when to stop eating and choosing the best foods to eat. Once you start seeing the fruits of your labor of making better decision on what you are eating, it gets easier.

While I completely agree with eating the right foods (I try to eat mostly vegetarian and as much raw as possible), I KNOW firsthand that exercise is also extremely important and can counter bad eating.
When I was in Combat Diver school in Key West at age 29 (MANY years ago) we were eating everything we could lay our hands on: 3 full meals a day, bananas, Gatorade and Power Bars during breaks, then typically a half a large pizza in the evening while studying. I was still losing nearly two pounds a week. Graduated at 178 lbs, the same weight I was at 13.

My average weight while in the military was about 190. When I graduated from the academy (at 44) I was 207.

I'm down 45 pounds in roughly 60 days. I eat less than 1,000 calories per day. Paleo all the way. Completely physician supevised. No more than 4-6 ounces of protein three times per day plus a serving of veggies. Very little fruit, sugar, carbs, etc. Basically, I stopped eating stuff that tastes good. I'm down 2-3 pant sizes. I just had to sell some pants and jackets and shirts on eBay. I just looked silly in them.

In that situation, it's way different. You need to load up calories to keep you going through the intensive trainings.

Wowww!!

Do you have a pic of before and after? You could photoshop to cover your face if you like.

You know, I didn't take a specific "before" pic. I'm sure I have photos laying around though. Maybe when I get closer to a goal weight.

You don't like the saggy pants and shirt look that is so en vogue nowadays?
