Goal Weight:180.0 lb
following: Hildi72's own diet
performance: losing 2.9 lb a week

Ok, before I begin let me just say...I am a guy. A dude. Yep, a Male. A fellow FS'er told me that she didn't realize I was a guy till we chatted. SO just to make it obvious...I am a guy. Now with that out of the way. I know FS has a lot of women but there are a few men who are battling the weight on as well.

I just turned 40 (although I look like I am 31-33). Two years ago I lost 53 lbs then I gained 44 of those pounds back. I need to lose this weight before I get older because I see how some of my older colleagues are suffering from weight related ailments (hypertension, diabetes, arthritic knees and backs). I am using the same methods of losing weight as I did before so I know it works. The difference is that I need to keep at it and not stop until I reach my goal. I seek to lose about 63 lbs, a tall task but I have already lost 13 lbs (wasn't a member of fat secret for 11 of those lbs). For me, losing those 63 more lbs would be a major achievement. To anyone reading this, do not ever give up, even if you plateau, just keep going, your body is just readjusting. Healthy living is a process not a one day thing. If you need a friend feel free to Request to be my buddy or send me a private message. We are all battling the same weight issues.

can you recommend a good bathroom scale ?
UPDATE: I bought a FitBit Aria scale and I love it. It relays my weight to fitbit.com. I also purchased a FitBit one which will track my activity. Should keep me very well monitored and I can see where my exercise gaps are.

can you recommend a good bathroom scale ?
Yes, i bought my digital scale at Ebay. It was like 20 dollars and it has worked for over 3 years. It doesn't have to be pricey to work well. The key is weighing yourself around the same time everyday (if you do everyday weighings) and in the same location (for me its the bathroom). that way you control the factors for measurement and you will get consistency in measurements.

Ok, first things first. Whatever you get, make sure its a digital scale. Something where you can see the weight in at least tenths of a lb/kg. Those old spring loaded dials are hard to read. Secondly, always weigh yourself at the same time everyday. Me, I prefer to weigh myself in the morning when I get up. That is why I keep mine in the bathroom. Brush teeth then weigh myself...Good luck in your search for a scale.

Chicken Breast. For me, a great protein source.

Getting Close
Congrats! I completely understand the CPAP thing. I use one and when you strap that thing on you feel like Darth Vader. It does provide a comfortable sleep but you hate that you have to wear it. Last night, I didn't wear mine and I don't think I snored at all. While my throat was kinda sore this morning, I don't feel like I was snorring. I cannot wait till I have hit my goal weight and do not need the CPAP anymore. Good luck to you and I hope you lose those final nine pounds!
