      That actually was a very important move.

      Personally, though, I wish you'd hold off posting this for another hour or two each day. I'm in the Central Time Zone and I always get hungry when I read your posts.
      That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

        Did you really only have a serving of Life? Iíve gotten away from dry cereal, but I donít think I ever in my life ate just a single serving. It was never filling enough.

          This is why I just tend to skip breakfast (or if it's the weekend I just have a really late breakfast/brunch and eat egg scramble w/ hash browns).

            Yeah, I'm fine with it. Always have been.

            I'm not hungry at all in the mornings; when I eat at all it's to ensure I don't get a headache because that can spoil the whole day.

              If you're serious I can post at 2 my time. Srsly. I'm recording everything as I go anyway so I have the data.

              I'm braced for showing very little/no weight loss for a while. I originally saw a drop from 245 to 235 (only noticed because I went to two doctor's appointments very close to each other) but I assumed that was the quick loss you see when you start doing ANY dieting. My 6-month target is 220 which is 0.6 lbs per week. The idea here is everything I take off never comes back, so spurts by definition are meaningless, it's the mean that counts. Hockey season I'm just going to try to hold the line -- between holidays and trips and birthdays and such I'l be very happy to still be at 220 next April. Then Phase II and a target of 205 by November 2020.

              That's The Plan. If things go a little better maybe I'll make it under 200 by Election Day, and then I can vote D with a clear conscience. (I'm voting D anyway; no worries.)

                Yeah, my comment was in jest, except that your posts do make me hungry. But I'm only an hour behind so I'm sure I'll survive.

                The first 10 pounds are always the easiest. I've frequently told my wife that if I could just figure out a diet where you start, you lose that first ten pounds right away, then you stop for a period of time without gaining the weight back, then rinse and repeat a few times, I'll pretty much be canonized as a hero.

                    Doesn't burn as much weight as you'd think... Good for muscle building though.

                      The only way to burn calories in any significant amount is moderate to rigorous exercise several times a week. Even the hardest days of P90X burned around 500-700 calories in ~80 mins. But youíre so wasted after that it almost isnít worth it. 200-300 calories a day exercising is much more reasonable but youíve got to keep after it. The biggest benefit was building lean muscle mass which will increase your metabolism burning more. But you have to work at it.

                        Pretty much. I would say having a mix of lifting and cardio (or at least anaerobic activities) is the best way to do it.

                          Thanks. This is good information. It also sucks, but most facts suck.

                                You shouldnít underestimate how much an increase in activity can help though. If Kepler could increase the amount of steps he takes each day by like 5k Iím sure it would help him lose a couple extra pounds each month and it wouldnít take a ton of effort, just change a few habits here and there.
