Good luck, Ben -- you should definitely be able to do this. I suggest monthly thread updates in 2020 just so you'll stay motivated. Perhaps everyone previously banned from participating in this thread should be unbanned so they can cheer on your efforts. Of course, they should be rebanned forthwith if they don't cheer sufficiently or sincerely enough. I think a three pound weight loss month ought to be considered a success even if it doesn't quite meet the one pound per week threshold. After all, who is to say you won't lose five pounds in some future month? Plus, we have to account for the fact that everything goes to hell in February...it just doesn't have enough days.

Ben, you should try excessive drinking, I lost 4 inches off my waist because I couldn't really eat much anymore.

>it will be TOO EASY to accomplish this goal.

I appreciate this reference.

The forum will send you an Avs hat when you hit 200 in 2020.

The past year and a half have seen some reversals, but we are once again back on the right track.

253.

We are now introducing a new feature, called "200 in 2020". This comes out to about a pound a week, which if I can maintain my current regimen, it will be TOO EASY to accomplish this goal.

The ULTIMATE goal is to once again fit into my Ted's of Beverly Hills bowling shirt, which hasn't fit in 15 years. But we'll get there.

June 1, 2018: 241.6

After a couple months of inexcusable misbehavior, we're back on track and just about back to where we were when the train left the track. Onward and upwa-- well, downward!

So you're saying he should have kept the weight on instead of just losing it. Right. That would have been better for him.

I mean, I just want you to admit that in this particular conversation you have no idea what you're talking about and unless he is chopping off limbs to get his weight down - which I don't suspect he is - the fact that the pounds are coming off at a reasonable rate trumps any sort of hogwash about "doing it correctly."

You should admit that. Nobody needs to bow out of anything.

I mean, it's just amazing that "better diet and more exercise over several months" is somehow making you think you're in "I told you so" territory. That's astounding. You agree that it's astounding to have the opinion you have, right?

Billy, you realize that you sound like you have no idea what you're talking about when you tell a guy dumping 70 pounds that he is "doing it wrong," right?
I am going to bow out gracefully from the "doing it wrong" part of the conversation rather than debating it with you since I can sleep comfortably at night knowing that there is now a second person I can add to the "Billy Mays Told You So" thread in the future.

Continuing with my now successful streak [of one], let's see what else I can do.

Ben, the Nutrition Facts label is your friend. Note that it gives calorie counts per serving. One thought is to portion control meals to serving sizes. Another is to check the calorie counts of different products as a substitute.

For example, I said it before that I really recommend stevia, it is zero calorie and looks and tastes like sugar. Unlike the chemical ones there is no aftertaste. If you try using it in cereal, coffee, tea, you can make things as sweet as you want, and add zero calories.

Most of us don't realize how many calories we drink in until we look at the label. And try different diet drinks. I can't stand diet soda except Mr. Pibb diet tastes reasonable enough to use in place of Dr. Pepper.
To recap, you are an enormously obese man who cannot walk, telling me, a man who has lost 70+ pounds over the past year, that I need to keep an eye on the calorie count of my foods, and watch my portion sizes.

Am... Am I getting this right?

Am I dreaming this, or is this really happening?

Don't feel discouraged if it doesn't give you good results every week or you slip and gain a little. Some weeks you might only have water loss or you make a mistake and eat something extra. A consistent, sustainable long-term loss not to exceed 1 lb/week is reasonable and safe. The weight went on a little at a time over years, don't expect it to come off fast.

I mean, even if you can keep an average loss of 1/2 pound a week until you get to your target weight you'll be doing a lot better than most of us. Like me, for example.

Because you kept editing other people's posts! You banned yourself and I thought this was a good way around it.
