Weigh in for week ending 8/31/18:
YES

Hopefully being able to stay home, it will be easier to stay on a routine of sensible eating and exercise. 



I am off to a good start having lost several pounds this month.


Enjoy your retirement and agree with your statement of sensible eating and exercise. But we have to find ways to like what we eat and what we do for exercise.

    I really believe the food is not a curse but to nourish our bodies. All we need is to eat right kind of food that nourishes our bodies and not that harms our body... "The food we eat can be either the safe & most powerful medicine or the slowest poison"

    ....blah.  I have been gaining since going on a "retirement schedule" (ie. none).  Picked up the bad habit of staying up half the night and of course, snacking....

    I lost 25 pounds four years ago and have kept it off... and lost another 15 just the last few months. Read about "Intermittent Fasting 101". Once you quit using food as a drug and a habit after 7pm, your stomach will shrink and you will eat less and less and still feel full. I never have food cravings, now. See a doctor and get CBC blood test and cholesterol tests. I am retired and my focus is delaying the aging process and writing. Read "How calorie restriction influences longevity". The hardest part was walking past a Reeces Cup at the 7-11. Read about the Paleo, Pritikin, and Mediterranean diets. You lose weight in the kitchen and build muscles at the gym. It is easier to not eat two Reeces / 210 calories than to try to burn off 210 calories by exercising. Good Luck. It is a head game. People assume that I am 15 years younger, and I believe that intermittent fasting saved my life. If you also reduce your caloric intake by 20% ( check calorie counter, online) and exercise enough to lightly pant, you will lose weight (you exhale the fat). It will take two weeks to see any difference. It is a lifestyle change. Ask your doctor !

    This is an interesting "challenge". I have a very poor relationship with food (read: eating disorder) and I'm used to my weight being a rollercoaster ride. A pound a week is so specific and so slow that I'd find it difficult to stick with it.

    As it stands right now I'm also trying to lose weight after "letting myself go" for three years and I'm losing between 7 to 15 pounds a month. Even that feels too slow to me.

    Still, your approach does seem the healthiest and easiest to sort of stick with in regards to caloric restriction. You only need to run a slight deficit every day to meet your goal and, even if you don't reach it, it's not a big deal because it's "only" a pound.

    Seven years, though. Have you been trying to do this consistently over this time? What's the "status report" so to speak thus far?

    Finally have myself back under control after a long lapse. I had a slipped disc and couldn't do anything but lie around eating - that's my excuse anyway!

    I've lost about 25 pounds since the middle of January and although my back isn't completely right yet I'm back to walking a few miles every week. Once again I'm determined to keep going but experience tells me it's never that easy.

    Thank you! Although no doubt I'll be back here before long, confessing my sins. Sigh. One day at a time.

    Great to see so many getting back to our program.  I retired 8 months ago and am adjusting to a new schedule. Staying stable so far. 

    Congrats to all.

    Enjoy your retirement NapCat

    I am well settled in my eating and activity schedule to stay in normal weight and strongly believe anyone of us can do the same without being over concerned about weight...

    Thank You....after working for nearly 60 years, it is sort of like running into a brick wall !!!

    I am keeping busy with my ranch and interests....also volunteering at a Wildlife Refuge and Death Valley National Park.  I am on a more regular eating schedule of better foods and sleeping more......I feel good and slowly losing some weight.

    The weight loss has slowed down to a crawl and it's very frustrating - I feel like I'm making a lot of effort for very little return.

    That said, I did manage to shift 2 pounds last week, so yay!   :D

    One or two pounds can easily be due to water loss. My weight can fluctuate as much as 5 pounds just due to water. Cold nights less weight, warm nights more weight is not uncommon....

    For this past week: Yes and I currently weigh less than DH.

    In the time since I last posted here, my weight has been going up slowly but has been relatively stable. I am nowhere close to my highest weight. I am still participating in races but have let the training slide due to family needs. I am restarting training for a race in July that is being dedicated to my mom.

    Down two pounds since the last time I posted! Which would be more impressive it it weren't on the pound-a-month schedule instead of pound-a-week, but I'll take what I can get!

    I bought a shirt in February that was a size too small, because the business was awesome, and I wanted to support them. IT's now just a little too tight across the chest, and fits across the belly! Which means it's perfectly fine for housework in the backyard. Someday soon, it'll be fine in the front yard, too!

    Weigh in for the weeek ending 9/20/19: YES. Also YES for the weeks ending 9/13/19 and 9/6/19

    I still weigh less than DH!

    After some stressful times in the recent past and the associated stress eating, things have calmed down a bit. I started tracking again in the free version of the Lose It app. I am not "dieting" and I don't worry about going over the calorie budget recommended by the app. (I am averaging about 200 calories a day over recommendations but I am also not entering exercise or activities.) I had my annual physical yesterday and I am 5 pounds down from this time last year. Not bad for a stressful year!

    We are leaving today on a family vacation at Disneyland/California Adventure. I will eat whatever I want but plan on still tracking what I eat. We will see what I weigh when I get back home.
