Ordered a new diet book: The Obesity Code

Obesity CodeI saw on Facebook a friend had started using the program described in the book The Obesity Code. It is another one of those book that is more a way of eating than a diet book. It looked pretty interesting when I read the reviews and the blurbs about it, especially in terms of my current state in life and the philosophy what I know works best for me. So, I wrote my friend and email. He has been using the program for awhile now and getting really good results, not just in weight loss, but in also with his diabetes.

I ordered the book and plan to read through it and figure out what I think about it, but I am also going to stay in touch with my buddy to see how “sticky” the diet is. That is important to me because a lot of these diets are easy to maintain during weight loss, but motivation drops when you have to stay with something painful with no immediate positive feedback (weight loss) because the weight has been lost and the food was only good and interesting the first few weeks of the program. My friend seems to have good success with it for quite awhile now, so I have hope it might be good for me, too. I will keep you posted.

A dubious new record

Day 105 of 1000 (215.9 lbs.)

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I hit a new fatness high:  216.2 lbs.  Today, I weighed in at 215.9.  That is WAY out of line.  I am starting a new job in a little over a week, the new year is coming, and it is a great time to get back to eating right, exercising more.  I have started a spreadsheet–with me, that is the thing that makes it truly official.  I will post a link to the graph as soon as I make one.

P.S.  I am aiming for 170.
