Current Weight:(20 Dec 14) 169.2 lb
Goal Weight:150.0 lb
following: Firelair's own diet
performance: gaining 1.6 lb a week

32yo working a part-time job (14-25 hrs per week) and a full-time graveshift job (40 hrs per week). Working hard to keep in shape (and get in BETTER shape) in the very little off-time I have available! Refuse to make excuses if I can help it, because those won't help me shed the pounds! I had gotten to the point where I was breathe'ing heavy while tying my shoes and decided enough was ENOUGH!

I started using the "Calorie Counter" app in January 2011, and lost 25lbs from Jan-June the healthy way! I worked out moderately, drank tons of water, ate more fruit than I've ever had in my entire lifetime, and made a conscious effort to stay below my 2k RDI (which "Calorie Counter" helped extensively to make me double think anything that might make me go over my RDI or compromise enjoying a delicious meal later in the day by splurging early on)! I have since revised my RDI to 1800, although I try to stay closer to 1500.

Looking for buddies that log food / exercise / journal entries often (I log daily!), have some similar interests, and willing to keep eachother motivated throughout our goals / challenges!

Most unforgettable weights:
160 lbs - 1994 (age 12)
135 lbs - 1997 (age 15)
165 lbs - 2001 (age 22)
180 lbs - 2008 (age 26)
208 lbs - 2011 (age 29)
185 lbs - 2014 (age 32)
I am on the road to recovery. I am striving to get back to my highschool body, AND I WILL!!

What leg workouts can I do at home if I don't have access to a gym?
I have found that Youtube videos are an excellent resource for workout material! I have done Zumba and Kickboxing workouts from the privacy of my own home and have been able to tailor them to my skill level and keep myself motivated. I just grab my tablet and workout in the kitchen, or move the coffee table and workout in the living room, or push the computer chairs away to work out at the it goes where I go!

Here are some of my favorites!:

Bulk Edit Foods
If you're able to get to a computer, I think it will be much easier to click the "x" to void them out, rather than on the app, which, iirc, makes you go through a number of screens.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
I weigh myself daily, and don't get too disappointed when things fluxuate about 2-3 lbs, but 5 lb flux makes me uncomfortable..

I weigh myself just as I wake up, right before jumping into the shower, which I'd say is the optimal time. Smile

I need help!
I think I see what the issue is...even if you log it as you eat it (ie: breakfast at 9pm) then food from "today" runs into the next day...I don't think it's a problem, as long as you're logging everything and staying consistant. If breakfast is at 9pm, lunch falls into the next day around 1am, etc etc...go with it. You're still able to see what you consumed during that day, and that's where you find the issues you learn to fix once you see HOW you're eating throughout the day. Wink
