Sorry to hear about that El Josey. On the bright side, you'll lose some weight. I'd be living it up and packing it on like the doctor said too.
Speaking of living it up and packing it on. I have been on a non stop binge since I got off the whole 30. I'm still scared to weigh. I've learned that there really isn't much of a middle ground for me. Either I stick pretty strictly to the diet or I have no self control.
Didn't get to finish the Boston Marathon due to yesterday's events. I was about half a mile from the finish. My wife was sitting in the stands as the bomb went off. Very crazy day for both of us. Flying home tomorrow since the trips atmosphere has changed. Always next year.
I'll jump in here. Doing weightwatchers, and it's been pretty successful. Except I've plateaued the past few weeks and keep hanging around the 190 mark. Just need to be more disciplined with my tracking.
Get that weight under control now young pups, I turned 50 this year and as my BMR has gone down I find it really hard to keep the calories in check. I'm 35 lbs down since I started 18 mos ago, its that last 10-15 that kicks my ass. I'm 5'10" and actually got down to 178 last summer, but people were saying I looked bad, I think around 185 or low 180's would be good.
