I donít want to keep up that pace because then Iíd be negative pounds lol. The first couple weeks should have a higher weight loss because I weigh more.



That would be considered dedication.

One week update: I lost 7 pounds last week and Iím starting to get used to the exercising every day.



Just some random musings...

I've gotten soft af living the sedentary life, and while I don't eat well, I can just stop eating. And I have. And it's made no difference whatsoever.

I wouldn't want to say anything that would discourage diet, because it's important for myriad reasons besides just being fat. But gd does physical effort matter. It's positively imperative, and at least in my case, involves not one single boring "workout" whatsoever. I manage just by being active, and no, I don't mean needing a full MMA regimen, either. Gardening. That's a good one. Doesn't seem like much until I got injured, then it became apparent that it's like 1-2hrs of planking every time I do it. I can do about 0.5 squats before my knee gets all "et tu, Brute?", so I don't do squats. But I do pick crayfish. For hours, sometimes. And you know what crayfish picking is? Squats. My hams are blown out right now, and it was 100% spiritually relaxing pleasure doing it.

A lot of dumb s#$% around the house is no different. Don't be a sodding wanker with those gd leaf blowers waking up thirty generations of dead. Put down your pu$$y and grab a rake. Don't spend $30 just because Swiffer came out with no-wet static wipes. A bucket of soap water weighs 30 pounds; get a rag, get down on the floor, and do it.

You wanna get cut, eschew convenience. Ever see a fat Mennonite?

Ok my workout friend is being mean to me. Today was 27 min elliptical and 50 pushups. It was hard by the end but I finished it.

So in the long term this is a bit more correct, but this is actually a bit of a myth. Someone who has the weight to lose can consistently lose X lbs per week. You shouldn't naturally see your weight loss go down until you get much more trim, and at that point you need to push yourself harder and really laser focus your diet, but you can still keep the lbs coming off. Since I'm getting "near-ish" my goal weight admittedly I've been losing weight but MUCH slower now. Even though I'm near goal weight if I wanted to lose 7 lbs next week, in a HEALTHY way, I absolutely could. It would be a rough week of exactly 1450 calories and working out every day, but hell I bet I could lose 10 lbs next week. Basically, with you being on week 1, you should easily be able to CONSISTENTLY lose 7-10lbs per week for a month or two EASILY to come.

Seriously what you put in is what you get out for 90% of your weight loss journey. Keep smashing it and watch the lbs keep falling off!
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Well I am extremely motivated right now so I am excited to see how much I can lose. One of the things that I'm proud of is about half of the days I have seriously thought about not working out and in prior weight loss attempts I would take a day off. That day off turns into 2, then 4 days then a week and at that point I'm done. I have only taken one day off in 10 days. I know 10 days isn't much but I think I have found a nice routine.

Yesterday I went for a 4 mile walk with some friends because there was a Pokémon Go event (Iím a dork) so I figured that counted as my exercise for the day.


I donít know how far I walked but I didnít get any shinies for the first 2 hours. Got 2 the last hour and got a third from an egg.

Pokémon Go is great for exercise.

I only got 1 for the first 90 minutes and then they slowly trickled in after that. I ended up with 7.
