185 is nowhere near bad unless you're like 5'5


5'8". As I said, it's moreso how fast I gained it. Pretty much all fat.

Aside from the milk, all of it is technically water.

It's water with sugar or artificial sweeteners and other added flavor garbage, none of which is healthy. Just drink regular old water.

He clearly means liquids.

Anyways, I will join you in your campaign, sir.

I was eating whatever I wanted up until november 1st to start dieting to go to Hawaii in February. An unfortunate incident occurred right before November so I no longer needed to diet for Hawaii and I just started snowballing with stress eating all the way up until about Feb10th where I was at an almost career high of 281 lbs.

As of today I am 261 lbs. My goal is 225. My absolute lowest goal is 205.

Basically I am using S Health from my Galaxy phone coupled with my fitness pal. I have not incorporated working out into my routine yet. Though I do get some activity at work.

I have mostly cut all liquids besides water. No soda, no beer, no juices, no milk, etc.

I am eating whatever I want while keeping my calories between 1200-2000 a day. Substituted oranges and yogurts for a lot of chips and other stuff.

The apps help keep me accountable mostly. I have slipped up a couple of days, but mostly I am adhering.

I find what is so frustrating is I eat pretty well...most of the day

Low calorie organic cereals (the stuff that is 100-110 cals per serving, instead of double that)
Oatmeal (nuts, agave sweetener)
Peanut butter sandwiches
Smoothies (Frozen fruit, milk, and yogurt)
Protein Shakes (even more milk...whee)
Chicken wraps with hummus, spinach, and carrots

I eat 5-6 times a day (big -> small -> big -> small -> big -> small). Probably 3-4k calories. Worked great when I dropped weight 10 years ago. Never had a problem keeping said diet until now. Maybe like Corrik said, stress eating is a thing.

But instead of following the mantra "You eat what you buy," like more fruit or yogurt to pad things out, the vending machine in my building is close by...taunting me. Stupid sexy candy bars...

Here's also the workout regimen.

2xdays of strength training (bodyweight or light weights) - 30 minutes
2-3xdays of yoga/pilates (DDPYoga, Kundalini, or Hatha) - 45 min-1 hour
1-2x days of jogging outside (20-30 minutes) - depends on the weather

I also do a physical therapy when I can, maybe 1-2 times a week. Foam rolls, lacrosse balls, Theracane, PT exercises for hands, knee, back, etc.

Also, doesn't anyone know if chewing gum actually works as a mental trick to avoid overeating? I know it also does a SLIGHT calorie burn if done long enough. Weird how that works.

Chewing gum helps people who have oral fixations. Instead of having to smoke or eat, you can chew gum.

Unless you are trying to put on muscle, you shouldn't be drinking protein shakes unless not getting protein in your diet.

Wait hold on.

3-4k calories a day?

Then it all depends on how much you are working out. You can't lose weight without a lot of exercising at that calorie amount.

It's usually 3k, but I've been anywhere around 4-5k with going out to eat more (another habit from grad school) and all those liquids. My habits and adherence are all out of wack now.

How much are you working out? If you are not burning like 2-3k calories a day depending on how much ur actually eating then ur not going to lose weight. And that's a ton of calories to burn.
