following: The Burn More Calories Than You Eat Diet
performance: losing 1.0 lb a week

I'm a 54 year old single male who lives in Tennessee. I'm 6'2" tall.

I decided in July 2014 to start a major diet and exercise change. I wanted to eat better to lose weight to be able to start running. So, the more I ran, the more water I'll drink and the more full I feel. And the more full I feel, the less I eat, and the easier it is to run. Repeat the process.

I started losing weight pretty fast. Since it's gotten colder, I've been doing cardio on the treadmill and cross-training to gain more muscle definition.

At this point. From July 16th, 2014 to January 13, 2015, I've lost 50 lbs.

A down side is that I've had to replace ALL of my clothes, which has gotten a bit expensive. I also wonder now that I'm on this path, what is the right weight for me to stop and work on maintenance. I guess I'll figure it out. My goal for this winter was to maintain +\- 5 lbs especially during the Holidays.

So, I guess this is the last update until warmer weather or something really special happens. Good luck to us all.

Road race
Thank you! Several years ago I was addicted to running. Time passed, stuff happens, etc. But with my first race in some time Saturday, there was this kind of fellowship, a kind of fraternity, that for most, it didn't matter about your time. What mattered was that you were there; that you were one of "them", a runner. So, after this 5-miler, next up a 5-k next month. Stoked. Weight keeps going down and energy keeps going up. Thanks for your comments and support. JG

Road race
Ran in a 5-mile race for charity Saturday, September 20, 2014.

Gonna enter more races this Fall. Only been training for this since mid-Summer, hence part of the reason for losing weight. Anticipate losing more as kcal's keep being reduced and exercise levels continue

Weight loss measurement
I did NOT go from 230 lbs to 225 lbs from August 31st to September 1st. Not sure why that was calculated that way. I hadn't even weighed since August 23rd (230 lbs.) and then today, September 1st (225 lbs.) I'm starting today to weigh where I record every Monday. I don't know how to change that I didn't lose 5 lbs in a day.
