Progress Report: Weight Loss Maintenance Log

#1 Postby beforewisdom » Fri Jun 20, 2008 10:08 am

Instead of making a new thread every month I am going to consolidate my monthly maintenance reports into this thread.

I've now been maintaining my goal weight for 5 months.

Starting Weight: 223.8 lbs

Goal Weight: 178 lbs
Goal: Maintain this weight loss for 1 year

2008 January 19th: 177.89 lbs
2008 February 19th: 176.09 lbs
2008 March 19th: 176.82 lbs
2008 April 19th 175.63 lbs
2008 May 19th 179.22 lbs
2008 June 19th 177.61 lbs

I'm a 5 11 man. I've been a vegetarian for 28 years. I've been a vegan for the last 13 years. I consider myself to have a "slow metabolism" or as I prefer an "energy efficient high survival value metabolism". I lost the weight eating a whole foods, low fat, high fiber, predominantly cooked vegan diet in conjunction with using The Hacker's Diet.
I did not avoid any foods on my new regime. I lost the weight at a rate of about a pound a week over the course of a year while exercising. I have very little loose skin. Mostly it came down to eating the same meals I was eating and avoiding snacking of all kinds.

Progress Report: Maintaining 6 Months

#3 Postby beforewisdom » Mon Jul 21, 2008 9:38 am

I'm up temporarily about 2 lbs, but I've now been maintaining my goal weight for 6 months. My maintenance system is working since I've been in this spot before and would have been well on my way to gaining it all back if not for the "The Hacker's Diet".

Starting Weight: 223.8 lbs

Goal Weight: 178 lbs

Goal:
Maintain this weight loss for 1 year to be eligible to join The National Weight Control Registry

2008 January 19th: 177.89 lbs
2008 February 19th: 176.09 lbs
2008 March 19th: 176.82 lbs
2008 April 19th 175.63 lbs
2008 May 19th 179.22 lbs
2008 June 19th 177.61 lbs
2008 July 19th 179.80 lbs

1 Year Goal Reached!

#4 Postby beforewisdom » Thu Jan 22, 2009 9:45 pm

Goal!

On 2007 January 21st I weighed 223.8 pounds.

On 2008 January 21st I weighed 178 pounds.

On 2009 January 19th I weighed 181.22 pounds.

In other words, I more or less maintained the weight loss I wrote about in IStick A Fork In Me I'm Done for a full year.

I wrote the full deal up in my blog and I want to avoid the hassle of converting HTML to BBCode to paste it all here. However, if you are interested, you can easily read my account of reaching my goal by clicking on this link:

How are things going buddy?

Will you be at AR in L.A. this year? I hope you make the trip out....if not, see you another time in D.C. but just thought I'd check in :)

Have an outstanding week!
