Good start man!  Stick with it, we'll all be faster racing next season!

Yep. I plan to do high protein low carb for a while, or at least until I'm horribly sick of eggs. Then I may transition to tuna and then ???

Think I'm in "fuck it" mode till after the holidays. I hate being one of those "new year new me" people but I think that's what i'm going with.

We've been paleo for a year now, but needed to change it up.  Was getting sick of eating red meat almost everyday, so we're doing a lot more fish/chicken now.  My weight has plateaued again the last couple months, so I'm swinging in more veggies and less meat - which might deem a need for some sort of low cal protein supplement if it affects my stamina too much.  

You still planning to try out the Cross training?  I'm a firm believer, but it can be gruelling sometimes.

I may slot cross fit in at some point depending on how things go.

It sounds bad but I dont care what the scale says anymore. I feeling I'm slimming down but the scale stays the same. I've noticed increase in arm size and chest, gut is shrinking.

My body still doesn't really seem to know wtf is going on, huge water weight swings every 2 or 3 days. It's not really worth weighing myself at this point. Gym every 2 or 3 days for the next 5 months and there will be drastic change regardless. Hit the 5 week mark this week.

So, we are going to cutout most of our red meat, add more veggies and chicken for the month of Jan.... Idea is to get off the plateau. 

We are both stronger but still have fat to lose.

Not much progress for me. New job has really put a damper on my gym routine, but I walk ALOT more now compared to my last job. Still floating between 210-215. I need to buckle down and get down to my 200 goal.

Diet change since January got me off the plateau.  Weighed in at 238 this morning putting me exactly 70 pounds down.  Stronger than ever, and keep getting better.  Keep up the good work everyone 💪

Ive stayed away from the scale the last 4weeks. Im pretty sure im down because my pants fit looser and stomach looks smaller. I'm finally off the blood thinners so we'll see if those were messing with me or not.

Well...I'm finally jumping in on the bandwagon. after saying for so long that I need to lose weight..yadda yadda yadda. As of Jan 29th, I have been meeting with both a nutritionist and a personal trainer. Been going to the trainer 2x a week and still trying to go to the gym to lift weights when I can. Ive cut out all pop and even my beloved sweet tea in exchange for water. I didn't like seeing that scale over 300# and with my episode this past summer, I HAVE to do this. Next Tuesday is my 1st month follow since having the Body Composition tested and hoping for some good results.

 What do you think is the most helpful part?  I was thinking about getting one of these, but wonder if it would help beyond what I'm doing already (tracking nutrition, exercise).

I noticed it tracks sleep.  That's pretty cool.

I have had one for years and I love it. It tracks steps, exercise, calories and even sleep.

I joined a gym to increase my workout days to 4 a week when I can.

I also started tracking my calories on my fitbit, amazing how many calories are on some foods

Started at 238 down to 230

Down another 10lbs. Aiming for 270/280 by May which will be about 20/30 more lbs. Real close to being back where I was in 2016 and pushing on from there.
