following: Lokidixon's own diet
performance: Steady

I boxed during my teens and twenties, sucking weight to fight at 147, rehydrating overnight to the upper 150's, with a comfortable street weight in the 170's. The sport gave me the yo-yo mentality, and through my thirties, I'd cut weight quickly then regain it quickly.

Now, in my forties, older and hopefully wiser, I'm trying to be smarter. I'm blessed with a great wife, and I actually have my dream job, writing novels. But I've learned that sitting on my butt, making stuff up, doesn't burn many calories, so... Fat Secret. For the last year and a half, I've been pretty dedicated, taking off 30-some pounds, and I feel great. My goal weight is somewhere in the 170's. I'll see precisely where when I get there.

I'm thankful for this community and all the great support I've received here. Down with the naysayers!

Had a similar shocker at the doctor not long ago. Fasting blood sugar came in at 104. We have to avoid diabetes. It's the Grand Central Station condition of so many horrible diseases.
