Congrats to everyone losing weight! You've discovered the cheapest way to increase the size of your Airstream.

I did the same 3 years ago and have maintained it, by closely watching calories in and out. The fun analysis of the data helped my motivation.

Weight seems to be a life long process. What I have found however is that the older I get, the harder it is to keep it off. Do the portion control, and the exercise, but it is a battle. But I applaude all who have made much progress with their weight loss.

I didn't lose any weight!

Hi, I didn't lose any weight, but I am holding my own. As you get older and somewhat less active, the weight starts gaining on you. I had my embarrassing high [210 lbs] and plan to never hit that number again. Now I eat better foods, sometimes a bit less, and go for walks with my dog and walk at the Mall. My goal is to maintain my weight and stay healthy. For the past year, I have been on a roller coaster, floating between 190 lbs to 195 lbs.

My sizes are changing on me so figuring proper weight and proportions is now different. I was six feet tall, since High School, but I shrunk to five feet - eleven inches. I also always wore size eleven shoes; Now they are eleven and one half or twelve. As for the shoe sizes, I think my feet are the same but the Chinese shoe makers use a different type yard stick.

I have a four step diet plan that is guaranteed to work for anyone.

(1.) Eat less. And while you're at it, eat better foods. [Stay away from restaurants]

(2.) Move more. Walk, ride a bicycle, mow your own lawn, wash your own cars & trailer. [You don't have to lift weights or go to a Gym]

(3.) Don't buy larger clothes. If your clothes are too tight or hurt, you know what you need to do.

(4.) Step on the scale daily. And mark your weight on your Calendar every morning.

I have also been on the program to lose weight and have knocked out about 25 lbs. The biggest thing (since I am already pretty active) was changing the way and what I eat. I got really awesome recipes that were easy and delicious at: Healthy Recipes, Healthy Eating, Healthy Cooking | Eating Well

I got curious as to how much space a pound of fat takes up. Turns out that body fat and butter are roughly equivalent in terms of weight/volume and that butter is 2 cups a pound. So, this means that every pound of fat is about a GALLON in terms of volume which in turn means I am five gallons smaller than I was at the end of the year. YIKES, that is a lot of blubber!

Just a few more gallons to go..........

Congrats on your weight loss. It is on my bucket list!

How did you get from a pound of butter being 2 cups volume to a pound of fat being a gallon?

Dan

Thanks Dan!

1lb = 2 cups
8lb = 16 cups
16 cups = 1 gallon.

big oopsie on the typing of the post. I meant to type that every 8 pounds equal a gallon. My bad.

I think body fat is less dense, but you're probably close. I used to imagine two litter bottles of soda for every 4 pounds. I lost 36 pounds. 9 bottles of Coke I'm not tripping over in our Bambi, or hauling up a hill on bike. I found that to also be a big motivator. I've taken so many private lessons to get a little better at various sports. When all I had to do was drop the big gut I was carrying and I was instantly better than before.

Kick ass!! Way to go! I just joined the gym myself. My wife is due June 13th with our son, and she gave me the ultimatum that I need to be back down to my "pre-baby weight" before she is. I reminded her that she has an advantage that she'll drop about 15 lbs the day of the birth! LOL!!

Keep up the good work. The more of us that are in shape, the better!!

I'm on the same journey At a Christmas party a friend who'd been away travelling for three months showed up and she'd lost a significant amount of weight since I'd last seen her, and that did the trick for me! I joined a free website called SparkPeople, which has an excellent calorie counting section, plus lots of motivational stuff, exercise info, and it kind of sets you up with a plan, how much exercise, how many calories, that sort of thing. I'm down 28 lbs so far, and my energy level is up. I've actually taken up jogging, and am signed up for a 5K in July! It's a big change for me, but I'm really feeling great and not the least bit deprived.

Everyone is dead on, the only way to do it is Eat Right, Exercise More!
