following: Microwave diet
performance: losing 0.5 lb a week

Believe it or not,this is not my photograph, but one of my beloved dog Mitzi. And of course my name is not Glaun, but Phil and my photo is somewhere else on my Fatsecret page. The name Glaun is my computer Gaming name. For those of you who game, I am most fond of MMRPG games and usually play them multi boxed.

I have been retired for 20 years now. My last job (if you want to call it that, really it was a 5 year extended vacation) was as a ski instructor in Park City UT. I met my current bride there and now live in Carefree AZ. Yes, the life style here is all in the name of our town.

I have three adult children, two grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

My wife and I live by ourselves (plus critters) and love to travel. I have lived in several countries around the world and have traveled a lot. My primary loves in life are travel, Skiing, Scuba, and Flying. When forced to work, my primary vocation was law.


That is when I joined FS. As you can see, it has been slow and steady for me. 1/2 to 1 pound a week. I figure with my new diet and exercise program I will reach my goal of 193 lbs by December, 2013. (I am 74 inches tall)

So there you have it. I am glad to be in the company of so many who have the same goals as I. Good luck to us and as I read somewhere, "God bless us, everyone".

(2015) Update It has taken longer than expected but I reached my goal of 193 somewhere around 10/2014. A series of events hit me and for a few months I gained weight until I reached 201. A dive trip called to me in 06/2015 and I again resumed FS in earnest. I have lost 5 lbs and should make 193 by dive time. At the same time I will hit the unheard of age of 81. What a grand life!

Calories from working at a desk?
Why not enter them. Working at a desk uses calories that should be accounted for in FS, it just uses less than other chores or exercise.

Upside-Down Mandarin, Almond and Ginger Cake! Yummy! ( Diabetes Fans )
Serves 12 ? Not if I am around, then the serving size is 1, me. Sounds good tho.

Difficult
I have also found that each time I restart a diet or exercise plan it is much harder than the previous time. For me it is a factor of age.

Weight Goal Duration
Here is a non calculator method. Most weight loss sites advise that if you eat 500 calories less than your daily RDI you will lose 1Lb a week.
HOWEVER:
1 The RDI used by Fat Secret is too generous. Try Mmmydees link:
http://www.calculator.net/calorie-calculator.html or Google RDI.
2. The pound a week loss has never worked for me after I have been on the diet for a few weeks. I need to knock of another few hundred calories daily over and above what is called for to lose weight. I am talking not days, weeks or months but multiple months to get to goal and stay there.

Off to a good start
Scroll back thru this topic or search. Many great ideas from many of us sugar addicts.

What works for me? A glass of fresh orange juice (no sugar added) or other raw juice of fruit will kill my sugar craving.

Drink a glass of OJ when you want a sweet. If you still crave the sweet after, then go ahead and have it.
