Shoulders, especially the left, have not been well enough to lift at the gym. Though, I do lift a lot in our warehouse, stacking and moving 25 lb cases mostly. I did a little yoga the last 2 mornings and feel that's what I really need to continue and increase. Also, running weather is here!

Hey John, how have you been? How have your shoulders been holding up?

My shoulders have been worse and worse and I used it as an excuse to fall out of my excercise habit almost entirely. I also had some big psychic challenges, with the death of my Mom after her being ill last year. It's been a year since I worked out and I gained 30 lbs back. I do a little yoga and takes some walks occasionally. Maybe with nice weather here again I'll get back in the saddle. We have a track at the end of my block. Thanks for asking Dylan.

Missed my workout yesterday. That makes 20 months! I've been dragging bottom for some time with my 38" waist jeans getting too tight. I've been in a long pattern of eating most of my food in the evening and only getting occasional exercise, mostly at work, doing warehouse chores.
Goddess of the universe, please accept my humble offering, 50 pounds of me! My shoulders are bad, I can't throw a ball without wincing then doubling over in pain, until what seems like the "train of pain" passes after several seconds. My low back is tight and my energy is low. Maybe with a little support I can restart some healthy patterns.

Starting the day with Assam tea and unsweetened soy milk.

Thanks for reading and for your encouragement.

Day 2 of my dietary sobriety! Fell asleep early, so I didn't struggle against a night binge. Awoke overslept, with a caffeine withdrawal headache. Surveyed the damage of the last months of gluttony and sloth. My fully expanded gut may still feel ok in 40" waist jeans, but the tape measure read 47" yesterday! Avoided the scale for a long time, but this morning I weighed 228 with 80 lbs of fat. When I previously worked my way down from 222 lbs to 192 through running, lifting and diet, my weight minus fat stayed around 150 consistently, so a finished weight of 165 would probably leave me at about 10% fat, down from my current 35%! I swear I was 5'10 1/2" as a kid, but recently I saw I've lost an inch at age 54, so 165 seems an entirely correct ideal weight. When I see fighters my height at that weight I realize I could be plenty strong and well muscled down there, not scrawny at all. That's almost 65 lbs away, my intermediate goal is to get under 180. I've also started a food journal here. Good luck moving toward your long term goals, with today's progress.

Starting day 5 I'm feeling really good. I'm not hungry in spite of eating under 1500 calories a day and eliminating night eating. Just a fast walk for a mile and a half with hills was a good way to ease back in to exercise. Girth at my distended equator is already down an inch. I've been pretty impeccable about food and have kept up my food log elsewhere here.

Thanks folks. I'm sticking with this and feeling great. I've been sleeping more than usual and have been a little cold; the weather has gotten cold too. My optimism grows with each passing day. Weigh in Thursday!

219.4 lbs after 2 weeks. 8 1/2 lbs lost in 14 days. While I've done some heavy labor, I've not restarted any formal exercise routine. In two weeks the only exercise I did purely for exercise was one 1/2 hour walk! I'm feeling positive and pretty confidant I'll reach my goals.

Didn't stuff my self yesterday! Still feeling positive about my future success. Already feel good about having stuck with this a couple of weeks. Looking forward to the liberty of not carrying around my emotional insulation/blubber. Optimistic that my presumption of a long life may be realized.
