Hit the big 60 tomorrow so having a day off dieting and having a 'couple' of beers, meats, pasta salads (might even have some bread!) and a nice homemade lactose-free coffee cake.

Presuming a full 2500 - 2800 calories then back on the wagon on Sunday.

See the physio on Tues about my back - doc says a rowing machine will be ok, just want to confirm and get the right technique then I can get some 'serious' excercising in.

Happy Birthday. Sounds like you will have fun. Gorge away. I would do as you but I can't stand my guilt trip 15 minutes after I end my binge.

Happy birthday! Enjoy the day!

What works for me on a day like this is to NOT worry about calories. You'll see - you most likely will restrict yourself just a little without really thinking about it. If you don't - don't worry about it.

When you're dong partying, get back in the saddle and keep rockin'! Smile

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.
