2017 Weight Loss
I just thought we needed a new thread for a fresh start this year.

Good call. I need to get motivated. With V days and birthdays abound this time of year I've had setbacks.

Around the start of the year we got a fancy scale that sends results to my phone over bluetooth. Kind of interesting to see a graph of how my weight varies day to day. I'm on the border line of what I should be - I think not playing hockey this year is responsible for that. They have been keeping up with using my step machine so I think the next stop is to pay a little better attention to what I eat.

I tried using one of those calorie trackers before, but always after a week or so I got lazy about putting in what I ate because it always took a few minutes of clicking around to get it all in there.

Weekly weigh in.
Put it here?
Put it + or -for the week/ month/ year

I'm on a weight loss journey. About 20 lbs over what I weighed through most of my SAHD career. Back injury last year and crappy eating habits at my last job were the culprit.

My new GI doc was a bit of a cornhole, said I was 3 or 4 lb from being morbidly obese. I was like, WTF, I have a bit of a belly.

I'd like to drop 30lb's this year. That would put me near my college graduation weight.

5ft 8 162.6 lbs, looking to maintain. And keep my heart healthy. My anti- convulsants are resulting in loss of appetite and weight loss.
Epilepsy be damned!

I've been trying to curb my sugar intake and walk 3-4 miles at least 3x a week. Yesterday I was down to 201. FWIW I'm 5'10".

Not really weight loss story here but Wife and I have joined a Cross Fit gym. I am an avid runner and would continue to be but I had enough of paying different places for the wife to go workout. She is not really a self motivated workout person and thrives best in a 1 on 1 / personal training type setting where she can't cancel. So I am driving 30 minutes at lunch time to meet here and workout at a gym that is literally right next door to her office. Not super convenient for me but if it helps her them I am on board. Also nice to spend a little extra time with the wife where there are no cell phones.

Hoping to get some motivation in this forum, have been struggling with losing weight and keeping fit since we had our daughter 2 years ago

Tough age.
Now that it's warming up, some daily brisk strollering?
Laugh away, but drinking a gallon (3 liters) of water a day has done wonders for me. May only get 3 pints some days but turns out I'm not so hungry.
