    Damn. Another appointment/weigh-in and I was hoping for another big number. Only lost 10 pounds since Aug. 30. Need to step up my workout efforts...

    How is 10 pounds in less than a month not a big number?

    Or are you missing the blue font?

    I realize that’s a decent number, but I was just hoping for a liiiitle bit more. Fifteen or so. Like I said, have to step up my workouts...

    Who's with me?

    Going whole hog (or should I say bacon) this month, ahead of a family photo shoot later in the month. No booze, no carbs, Peloton 15o miles.

    I intend to use this thread as a support mechanism so be prepared to be bored.

    Bored hell. We're here for you.
    I started my KetoVenture a year ago today and am thrilled I did.

    Go kick ass.

    4 days in and I've got more loose stools than a glueless furniture factory!

    Meanwhile, I found this really interesting:

    This guy used to work at my gym. Well worth an hour of your time to watch this.

    Go TigerVols! I hope it worked out for you.

    I like Bikman. He's the voice of reason where other DM guys ::cough::Neal Barnard::cough:: get confusing and contradictory.

    Smallpotatoes, a healthy relationship with food is absolutely necessary. I'm side-eyeing his method, but I agree with his premise.

    I'm approaching 170 gone. This GQ article scratches the surface on what happens after someone loses a significant amount of weight.

    More disappointment, here. Working out like a demon (increasing time/steps on a NuStep machine every day), and... didn’t lose a goddamned thing since Oct. 20. Doc said it’s not unusual to plateau for a few weeks before your body resets and you start getting decent losses again. Hmmph. (Grumble, grumble.)

    IF a 200 pound man runs an additional 22 miles a week he will lose an additional pound in that week, assuming no increase in appetite. There are lots of suties out there that show increased exercise does not lead to much weight loss because of the increase in appetite.

    That is not to discourage exercise, which has a multitude of benefits. But if you are going to lose weight quickly you must do it through diet.

    Ya can't outrun a bad diet.

    The diet end of is there, especially after bariatric surgery. Anything more than a cup, pain and hurling. More than 12g sugar at a time, violent diarrhea.

    Eager for next weigh-in. Have pushed NuStep workouts to more than an hour a day. Getting a good sweat on every day.
