    Re: 12 pounds off so far

    Today's "workout" if you can call it that was a major bust. After I started, I started feeling bad in the stomach. All I did was 20 barbell squats and 10 military presses and I didn't feel like going on. After I ate Life cereal, I felt much better, but I didn't continue the workout. This is disappointing because last time I did a workout, I made it 90 minutes with no problem.

    Speaking of weights, Sunday, my new weight rack came in and I spent some time putting it together and it was a little tough, because it kept falling part and I accidentally scratched it badly. Well, whatever; at least my gym equipment isn't a mess all over the basement floor.
    It's a man's world and we need to take it by the throat and make it give us what we desire.

    You're fine. Don't worry that one workout got spoiled. It's your dedication to keep doing it that matters. Occasionally, you'll have to skip a workout if you're sick. That's okay. You'll be back for the next one because you're committed to your goals. If you're feeling sick, it's better to take care of yourself and not push through a workout.

    Bad ski day? I know the feeling!

    Without the glorious days we'd have nothing to motivate us!

    Glorious days run in a 1/16 ratio, same as 2 stroke oil.

    Awesome job, OP. My 2 cents: losing weight is mainly a change of lifestyle rather than a temporary process. I.o.w. a mindset. A few quick wins; the slower the weightloss, the slower the weightgain. Our bodies resist weight changes. The body hates that. That's why those moronic "crash diets" won't work. Yes you'll lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks. But you'll gain 30 back in 4. Also the main fatteners are carbo hydrates. A.k.a. sugar. You already tossed away the soda's. But CH's are also in pasta, potatoes and bread. Go easy on those as well. Also toss away all "quick snacks and candy" If you are craving that bar of chocolate, you still have to walk to the shop. 9/10 you aren't craving it that much and if you do: you still have that walk to the shop to get it.

    And what I would like to add: it's OK to jump out of line once in a while. No problem at all if you go grab that BigMac occasionally. It won't put on 10 pounds at once. Why am I emphasizing this? To help you remember life doesn't have to be a misery and it's OK to enjoy it as well. I mean it to help you avoid going to hate your new lifestyle diet and lose the drive forever. I'm "sinning" occasionally as well. F.e. I fucking LOVE ice cream but I hardly ever take it. But when I do I go to my fav Italian ice cream dealer and order a 1 liter bucket and stuff myself to nausea with it. So I had my shot for a couple of months in 1 strike.

    One thing about bread: A whole lot of it is made of junk carbs (white flour and sugar) and should be avoided. However, there is such a thing as high quality bread. I bake my own bread with a combination of stone-ground whole wheat flour and sometimes some rye flour. I do it in a bread machine. The result is a much better quality bread that is full of fiber and nutrients.

    White bread and doughnuts, if you eat them, stop.

    Soda and alcohol, if you drink them, stop.

    Go past go, get out out of whale card, collect $200, roll again!

    One day it dawned on me? What's wrong with water? Why drink this shit? Alcohol and soda are ancient history! I can't tell you what the befits are without seeing what I'd look like had I stayed on the other timeline, I'm guessing I'd look like shit, especially if I were dead!

    Bad habits, can't be abandoned quick enough, unless you don't adopt them in the first place!

    Congratulations, TigPlaze. losing 12 pounds is no easy thing. Tossing off the sugar cravings is the hardest of all. Also, congratulations on learning to cook your own high quality food. that is no easy thing to do in todays world when so many foods have added ingredients that are bad for our health.

    I am age 75 and a retired chef. I have a different problem. At 6'3" and 190 pounds, I don't need to lose weight , BUT out of the clear blue sky I developed something called Irritable Bowel Syndrome-Diarrhea (IBS-D). I have gone to many so-called specialists and none of them can do a thing for me. My life is now totally controlled by my body's inability to have normal bowel movements. For years now I had fought it. But to no avail. I have thrown in the towel.

    Wishing you the best of luck on your journey.

    Try the carnivore diet for 30 days Loner. You'll be surprised what it can do for you.
