I am going to increase my green tea intake… I have been cheating as of late, I have had a few bottles of beer… hahhahhaa
One thing I haven’t seen in this thread (unless I missed it) is all men over 40 will, to some degree see a loss of testosterone. It can be to the point that your body builds estrogen instead. This causes a lot of weight gain issues. I will be 48 this summer and am no exception. The Methyl Andro from GNC works very well. It takes a while to get back in shape but, with a well disciplined diet and exercise, i’m in better health now than when I was in my 20s. I also take a regiment of vitamins and supplements along with the Methyl Andro.
Im down from 220 to 195 and i feel like a stick lol
Make sure you are doing it for yourself and no one else .
I have broken through the 190 finally. I am 185 or so… this gives me encouragement!
Yes… have to agree… this 48 years of age is getting to me. Hahahaha
congrats on the weight loss!
nice! how are you losing weight?
Started by shrinking my stomach. Eating much smaller portions 6-8 times a day so im not cramming in lots of food at once and stretching it out. Drinking more water also helos me not feel as hungry.
Very nice mate, well done!
So a quick update on my current weight loss. I’m going down to 150 lbs, and I think I’m going to stay there. I don’t think I’ll be able to completely lose this gut from dieting alone, and thats ok with me. If anything it’ll give me a reason to start exercising.
But I’m noticing an old problem come back. When I originally lost weight, none of my clothes fit me anymore. I’m sure folks are like ‘duh’. But, since I wasn’t done losing weight, I didn’t want to go out and buy new clothes. After all, I’d just have to do the same thing again, wouldn’t I? Whelp…its happening again. I need a belt to keep all my current jeans up, and these are the ones I bought to replace my old jeans. This is kinda funny to me, going from 250lbs less than 3 years ago, and being at that weight for 15 years before that, to needing to buy new clothes again. The first time in over a decade and a half, that I need to buy new clothes twice.
That’s a nice problem to have. You could just shop thrift stores until you get to your target weight.
oh yea, thats what I’m doing now. well…when I next decide to replace most of my clothes, thats what I’m doing.
All my cloths are now loose. Thank goodness! Hahahha
Yeah, besides socks and underwear, I do not really like buying new cloths. Real bargans at thrift stores
Wife lost 25 lbs during pregnancy and I have lost 16lbs so far this year.
Sorry if I missed it, but what have you been doing to lose the weight?
That’s Awesome! I’m trying to drop a little and it’s working so far. Mainly cutting down on carbs and sugars ( don’t really like sugary foods anyway ) . I’m a little superstitious so I’m kind of vague about the numbers.
as of this morning I’m down 2.6 lbs. This the weekend before last, I had a very high couple of days, so I gained 3 pounds. I’m down to 170.6 lbs, from 173. Thats not great, anything above 2 lbs lost per week is unhealthy. So I might have to give myself a few extra calories this week, and reduce that loss a bit. we’ll see though. If I’m down losing so much next monday, I’ll be increasing my intake by 50 calorie increments. until its not so drastic.
Diet change. No sodas, as little processed sugar as possible and plenty of water.
