MA,I watched my mother "diet" over the yrs. but always sneaking in foods that were not energy productive or beneficial for weight loss. She gained all her life,had to replace her knees fairly young,she never went to the extreme obesity that is so common these days but was always too heavy.(not sure her weight,not over 275#??) My 4 siblings are all heavier than me,even tho as a boy i was chubby & was reminded of that fact ALL the time. I was 165# at 15 yrs old & grew into that weight which i held into married life.At 31 yrs old i crushed a disc in my back which curtailed my activities & gradually added the weight to today's 180#. I have had to restrain myself all these yrs so as not to follow my mothers gain or my siblings gain.I do greatly admire you for losing 20+#'s,I do know that it is harder to take off than it is to keep from gaining. Again, congratulations to all who are shedding the excess. :D :clap: :up:

Starting weight 281 lbs.
Today 257 lbs.
Loss 24 lbs.

...well I did stray from my diet this week and I still shed 1.5 lb. Still glad a little dropped off and I am starting to see the physical difference as the first layer of blubber is removed. :)

Fell off the boat a little this week. But net was 0. Now to get back to the loosing side.
Mine and the wife's work routines are changing back to more normal, need to find a system that works right. I'm back in the plant working, which is good, no cafeteria/going out, only eat what you bring in. She is back to work at the school after summer break. It's easy to jump back to the regular routine, which wasn't working before!

You don't say "sir" to me, I'm a sergeant, I work for a living. :D I always liked Sgt Hulka.

Keep on walking not only does it help with the weight loss but the regular movement will help fend off what I call my sack-butt syndrome. That is where you get lots of aches and pains from lack of use....in my case achy knees & shoulder and my back tends to tighten up badly after a week or so where I am less active. If I keep up with the physical labor or exercise I don't have those issues.

Cycling is a great activity too and it lets you cover more area in less time. Depending on where you live it may or may not be an option. A decent bike is also going to cost you if you don’t already own one. You don’t buy good bikes at Walmart, maybe a temporary bike but not a good one.

I found a great mountain bike at a yard sale a couple yrs ago and it sat as my son was too young to join me on the public ways, (he would cry when I road alone)...make a long story short we donated that one another smaller one to 2 boys less fortunate so the bikes will live!

I plan to do some wall insulating in the basement soon and I will use my exorcise bike and elliptical this winter as well!

I was going to get into cross country skiing but I'm scared of running out of snow when I hit Arizona... toothy :notsure:

Glad you are losing weight for your efforts. I dont do it to lose weight, but snowshoes in the winter are a great workout. Start slow as the hips and knees get a real workout. Ive done a little skiing and much prefer the shoes. Those aluminum ones they sell are cheaper and pretty tough. Just dont wear them when you have winter lightning like I accidently had happen :lol: I love mine for trimming trees and bushes when the snow gets real deep.

Keep up the good work!
