If you buy a set that fits Now, even if you do reduce to the smaller size in the anticipated time frame later, it does not mean that there might not be some slight gains at a later date (not a much as to put you back into the "clown" sizes again) that might need this middle size again for a while.  Something to consider...

Dropped 8 more pounds. Not eating healthier, just avoiding the binges and the keeping the treats smaller.

Good job! It adds up. Or I guess I should say subtracts.

Me, I'm down to 227lbs. I'm increasing the daily walk to 2&1/2 miles when the sun isn't too oppressive.

Thanks. I need to add more exercise but I'll concentrate on getting the eating to be more habitual first.

It's been a good week for me. 223.9 lbs. Losing another 3 pounds would break the BMI obesity barrier. I think that's my new goal for my birthday next month. Still no wrinkles/loose skin.

What's more exciting is that while my wife is still ridiculing some of my food and the dietary rules/theory that I follow ( teasing, really), we're finding common ground. Japanese sweet potatoes. Popped sorghum. We both like them. She researched it and determined that it was best made in an air popper, that there was special sorghum for popping, and ordered some. While ordering me some Quest meal replacement bars for me she discovered some high protein chips ( 20 g ) they  made from whey powder, which she likes. She normally has protein challenges.

 There were other examples this week of her cooperating with my program. I'm not sure why. Maybe she thought I'd try to make her follow it, or that I would give up, or that the diet would stall out or fail after 6 or 8 weeks as most do. Or maybe it's simply that we finally found food we both like that follows the program. It feels great to be working like a team again, rather than my diet is an inconvenience to her. Did I mention it's been a good week?

Good week is a good thing.

Someone outside my household commented on the weight loss today.  So, I guess it's more noticeable than I think.

That's one of those human oddities. There normally seems to be a lag in self-image, whether gaining or losing weight, or even getting a hairstyle change. We think of ourselves as we have been. Well, maybe it's not that odd. Maybe the brain simply has a memory cache.

My wife has been bragging about me and my weight loss to her friends. That is pretty nice, it's been many years since I can remember her bragging about me for anything other than my cooking & food processing.  We celebrated my birthday last night since I'll be helping my parents on the actual date rather than being home with her. I had the only dessert I can remember since I started the diet. I'm still losing a little, but I was stuck for a while. A lot of my clothes are going from the laundry to a box rather than back in the dresser and closet because they are too big. I wanted to put off buying new ones for a while, but the time is approaching. Yesterday I noticed that a pair of pants I bought in June could be pulled on while zipped and buttoned, and then pinch off and fold over an inch of excess waist band.

Since the re-boot on the push-ups I haven't had the back trouble. I'm only doing three a day, but it's way easier now. My trunk must be stronger. The anchor/weight lifting is more likely to be a back issue. I can feel the pull. Maybe I'll have to buty some real ones.

My books say that this is the hardest time of the year to lose weight, because our biology knows that it's late summer and time to put on the pounds in preparation for winter, not take them off. Oh well, If I don't break the obesity barrier by my actual birthday, I'll try for Labor Day.

As you will be helping your parents at the time, I figure that you won't be online then, either, so...

You don't have to tell me! Gained a couple the last few weeks. It was too hot outdoors to do anything remotely excersising though.

And happy birthday. How young do you feel? :)

About a week on a multivitamin now, and feeling a lot better.  The radical changes in diet had been playing havoc on energy levels and mood all year, I think.

     Thanks! I'll be 59 in a few days. It seems I've been turning back the clock this year. I have been free of the spinal pain, and other joints are much better.  I feel about 50 again.
