Thanks all for the replies. I have started to reduce the amount of water I am drinking. Meal sizes are going to be reduced over time. And meals are going to be planed out better. Starting to get a cardio work out for at least 15 min ad hopefully going to get 30-45 min.

Going to see the doc some time next week.

This is going to be a slow and long journey but for the sake of my life and my family one I must take.

If it is ok with the mods I going to make this my eating habits and work out log. So if I am not posting here bug the crap out of me to keep me honest.


Thanks again

Best of luck. Remember, every meal is part of an ongoing journey- if you mess up, dont think 'to hell with it, I failed', just resolve to make the next meal a good one. This is life long, and you will have the occasional treat, you will hit sticking points, low motivation and all manner of setbacks- losing one battle does not mean you give up on the whole war.
please feel free to post as often as you want here, and I would suggest getting a copy of 'Sly Moves' by Stallone. It is a great book that gives sensible no nonsense advice on both getting started with exercise, and also the mindset behind successful lifestyle changes. Far from a novelty celebrity book.

Ok, one thing that stands out is that you're not eating much of a breakfast. Make yourself a nice bowl of oats and milk in the morning with no sugar and you'll have more energy to deal with the day and you won't feel tired out and you'll feel less hungry throughout the day.

Do not drink diet mt. dew. That stuff is nasty and in no way good for your body.

Instead of the pretzels, maybe try snacking on nuts (no salt) or raisins or something similar.

Don't be afraid of sugary foods as long as you eat them directly before you workout. The sugar is utilised while you're working out, just don't go overboard with it. For example, eating a banana or some other non-citrus fruit before a workout is a good idea.

Congratulations on your 1st kyu.

Mountain dew is not a meal. Neither is a glass of water. Stop regulating the time of your hydration- just drink when you are thirsty, you are not a robot, so the times will vary dependant on climate and exertion. like sprite say 'obey your thirst'- but not with diet dew or sprite- have a fruit juice or water.

As Leo said, eat a good breakfast- it not only gives the foundation of your energy for the day, it also 'wakes up' and primes your metabolism for all subsequent foods in the day.

Cook up some pasta or rice in the evening, and portion it out into small containers with some olives and herbs. Keep them in the fridge and have them the next day in the place of the chips/pretzels/insert salty convenience product here.

14 baby carrots eh? live dangerously- try just dumping a load in the water without counting them- its a bit rock n roll, but you wont OD, I promise

Relax. The key to success is that your eating does not dominate your thoughts 24/7. You just get on with enjoying your life, and when you are hungry and or thirsty, you ensure that what passes you lips is not processed high fat food. It really is that simple.

I am not regulating my liquid intake. I start a 16 oz water and drink it If I am busy at work it could take a hour or two to drink. As it gets warmer my water intake will spike as I work in a hot metal shop temps in the winter are around 70f to 80f summer any where from 90f to 110F that is if I am not working hot. working hot is around 115f to 145f.
I have been keeping a note pad and logging times that I eat and drink. I could drink more I am always thiristy.

No Diet Mt. Dew thats going to hurt but I will try to cut back and then cut out.

Woke up early today looking foward to getting s good walk in today.

This is such a good idea I'm going to start doing this from now on. Wish I'd heard of this earlier. I always hate doing the dishes over and over through-out the day.

A very good idea is to plan your meals a day in advance. All you need to do is about an hours concentrated prep in the evening, and then forget about it, knowing that your food is there when you need it the next day. This way you free your mind from focusing on your eating 24/7. Eating healthily should become as instinctive and thoughtless as breathing. You should in fact, get to the point when to do otherwise seems alien. Achieve this, and no willpower is necessary.

12:45 chicken breast sandwich carrots and diet dew and water
7:15 chicken taco and salsa with baked chips.
Kind of a slack day did some walking


Made my lunch the day before and had everything ready made lunch quicker. This is more then I normally would eat at work but it better food and I ate breakfast
Monday
7:00 am yogurt water and an apple
12:00 tuna salad 2 slices of bread olives and carrots
6:30 turkey bugger with carrots

Good hard day at work got home and did 25 min fast walk.

Got on a scale today and am down about 7 pounds in a week most of that was excess water weight I think.

Thanks again for all the help
