Quote from: MN Dave on June 12, 2009, 10:16:17 AMLet's lose weight. This morning I was at 272. Which is outrageous (even if I am tall).I want to get down to 220. We can post our weights here every day (or nearly), give each other support and advice. Kind of like the smoke-enders thread for fat guys.Unless I'm the only guy here with this problem.
Quote from: Scarpia on June 12, 2009, 10:49:03 AMStart weighing yourself in kilograms.
Quote from: Keemun on June 12, 2009, 05:53:45 PMI too have this problem, however I can't say I'm motivated to jump on board this thread at the moment. So for now I'll be a bystander, contemplating whether or not I should try (once again) to lose weight. Perhaps I'll feel differently tomorrow.
Quote from: Joe_Campbell on June 13, 2009, 12:08:43 AMI'm sitting at 6 ft, 190 lbs...goal is to be just as strong, but about 10 lbs lighter. This is tricky as strength tends to fluctuate with body weight...
Quote from: Brian on June 12, 2009, 02:29:03 PMOn the other hand, during the school year I played tennis twice a week and that was good. Tennis is a great game because even if you stink at it (like me), it's still a good workout, and also, even if you stink at it, you can have quite a bit of fun.
QuoteEDIT: Just saw your new post. Huzzah for walking! At college I walk TONS and it is an enormous help and a great joy. I have some rather highly cherished memories of walking our university's "Inner Loop" with Atterberg's Third playing on my iPod. My record for a single day is 6 miles, when I decided to walk back from the movie theatre once.
Quote from: Holden on June 12, 2009, 02:13:08 PM#4 Drink plenty of water. Many dietary regimes don't take into account the purgative and excretory powers of good old H2O. At least 6 litres a day is a basic requirement. "I'll be pissing all the time." you think. Correct ...and flushing all those toxins out of your body in the process. In fact, if you do this and nothing else you will begin to lose weight.
Quote from: Holden on June 12, 2009, 02:13:08 PM#3 - Don't count calories, change your diet instead. Honestly, what is your intake of fruits and vegetables? Is it adequate? How many processed foods do you eat? If it comes in a packet you can assume that it's processed and it's not good for you.
Quote from: Mozart on June 13, 2009, 07:49:25 AMDon't check the scale every 5 minutes buddy, you're going to end up the same as a teenage anorexic girl. You will feel the loss, you don't need a scale to confirm it. Buy yourself a big belt, and just see that you are moving down it. Weigh yourself monthly, at most weekly...As for the 6 liters, I don't see it a problem to drink a lot of water, as long as its done at the right time. Theres a million different opinions and humans tend to form ideas based more on cow turd than real evidence. But water with meals or after, I've read anyways, isn't good for digestion. Neither is cold water as they stop enzymes. There is also a short of addiction...I went through not exactly withdrawal but damn difficult to get rid of junk in your diet, you get intense cravings. It took me about a whole year to finally not get them anymore.
