Doctor's Order

Yeah yeah yeah... It's been a while.

I peaked back up to 255.5 and when my doctor saw me, I was told to move more and eat less. ( same old same old)

So what's different now? I joined the fitness center at work. I had my Resting metabolic rate (RMR)done and picked up a piece of software that helps me keep track of my intake and my exercise routine. I am doing 30 minutes a day on the elliptical and have been maintaining this now for 3 weeks.

I am back below 250 at 248.5. I am eating within my "budget" and targeting 2 lbs a week.... so far so good. This is going to be tough entering the holiday season but I can manage. I survived T-day ... peaked beyond my "loss budget" but stayed within my "sustain" budget based on my RMR. So it was no surprise to see I didn't lose any weight... but I didn't gain either and I just got back on my 30 minutes a day regimen.

My first goal is get off of High blood pressure medication. My second goal is to get off the CPAP... but I've said that all before.

Happy holendaise ... I mean Holidays ( damn food on my mind)

G'day. I'm Sir Fat Lazy Guy, a fellow KOTRB :) I haven't posted a comment here before because I wasn't really sure if you'd be back :D It's good to read you're back on track and all that now.

Keep it up :)

Good to see that you did not let the backslide turn into an avalanche!
