Default Re: What a difference exercise makes.

UPDATE: I've lost 18.80 pounds since the 28 days I started running. I'm down below 220 at 219.2 for the first time in a long time, I honestly can't remember it, but it's at least 3+ years since I was that low.

In the 28 days since I started running I ran 19 of those days and was either sick or resting for 9 of them. So 19 days of running has accounted for 18.80 pounds of weight loss.

Update

I'm at day 34 since I started running. Out of 34 of those days I was sick or rested for 11 of those, so I've ran for 23 days. Right now I'm at 217.6. I've finally cracked the 20 pound mark with 20.4 pounds lost since 34 days ago. I would probably be 215 right now, but a week ago I had a day where I eat quite a bit and actually drank alcohol (3 screwdrivers) for the first time since my 21st birthday. After that day I literally gained 1-2 pounds. I've hit the treadmill about 5 days since then hard and have lost weight 5 days in a row from 222 down to the 217.7.

Congrats Meticode. I don't mean to be a naysayer but do you think that you might be losing weight too quickly? I've found that if I shed a lot of weight in a short amount of time I'm likely to gain it back just as quickly if I relapse into bad food habits or stop exercising. I yo-yo'd up and down that way in my late 20s-early 30s. When I finally got on a sensible diet/exercise plan about 4 years ago the weight loss was agonizingly slow, about 1-2 lbs. a week, but I was able to keep it off since then despite the occasional relapse in diet and exercise.

Perhaps, a healthy loss is about 2-3 pounds a week. Rightnow I'm at around 3.5 to 4 pounds per week.

The thing is though, I plan to maintain it. I'm not going to suddenly quit when I get to my goal.

Those people on those weight loss shows are insane. They lose like 100 pounds in two months.

Yeah the key for me was a diet I could live with. I would starve myself and lose weight and then gain it right back when I went back to eating regularly. It took me awhile to get to where I actually enjoy several small, healthy meals throughout the day.

I still splurge on a decadent meal one weekend night a week, either eating out or preparing it myself. But even then I keep the portion size within reason.

Nothing specific. I just pretty much cut out the bad sweets and I portion control what I eat. If I snack it's an apple or orange or something like that instead of cookies, brownies or junk.

The days I gain weight or stay the same are the days where I don't portion control and I indulge into the bad foods.

The one good indulgence meal is something I planned to do, then either that night or the next day get a good workout in to get rid of what I reversed that previous meal.

I've noticed an actual difference too. I went to a funeral the other day for my grandmother-in-law and I had these black dress pants that I could still fit in before, but they were decently tight around the waist. Now when I wear them I have a little bit of room, and I actually have to put my belt on a tighter notch.

I think when I get to 215 I'm going to really push hard running on some days. Because as I said before that when I get between 200-210 I plan to alternate running(cardio) with strength training.

Default Re: What a difference exercise makes.

Here's my diet fwiw:

Breakfast: Steel cut oatmeal or Greek yogurt with either fresh or dried fruit, coffee, water.

Mid morning snack: Fresh or dried fruit, raw almonds.

Lunch: miso soup and a lean protein (some slices of turkey breast most days, sashimi if I feel like splurging).

Afternoon snack: Usually an apple and some more almonds or some yogurt and fruit.

Dinner: Lean protein (chicken, fish mostly), side veggies, big salad.

I drink water and green tea throughout the day. At dinner I'll usually have mineral water. I allow myself a cocktail and some beer/wine on the weekends but I have a strict no-alcohol policy for Sun.-Thurs. nights.

I'll also splurge on one meal on the weekends, usually a pasta or something grilled. Sun. mornings I'll have a bigger breakfast (bacon and eggs, pancakes or lox and bagels). I avoid desserts except for rare special occasions.

An optimal weight loss is around 1 pound a week (losing fat, keeping muscle).

Can I ask what is your goal, to lose as many pounds as you can or to lose as much fat as you can while keeping most of the muscles from the start of the diet?

I bet you've lost way more muscles than fat(if that is your goal then don't mind this post)

To be around 185-200 eventually with a little definition.

If I've lost more muscle than fat, then it's odd that I'm benching 10 more pounds than I was a month ago with the same amount of reps and I haven't really done any lifting at all really and I'm doing 81 pushups compared to 59 a month ago. Is there an explanation for that?
