Screw you all, I'm eating everything I can find.

I like this thread more than I thought as it makes me think more. In short......I dropped 10 lbs somewhat easily......then eased up and gained some back.....rather quickly and a little disturbingly. Then I moved back down a little. I'm seeing the influences and thats good. What I got over a month was "easy-ish" on a diet / exercise shift but I think I'm seeing what balance can be and what I have to do to move it / keep it. I'm finding that to be most rewarding now following this. I started before this thread but others experiences help as data points and encouragement as I have to find what is sustainable.

My Wednesday-Saturday was -0.8 lbs which is perfect so I'm going to stick with 2200 calories for the time being. Drop to 2100 after 190, and 2000 after 180. Adjust as necessary.

And finally training plan which is just about as green as it's ever been. Still in the base phase but sticking to it very well. Can't wait to get back on the trails, the trainer sucks.

It’s hard to shift the focus but I usually eat what I do cause it tastes good and I crave it. Pizza, Mexican, etc. Now I’m eating beacause I need to and I choose what will make me healthier. So it’s been all good protein, fats, and veggies. I can’t stress how much better I feel energy wise and clarity wise.(Probabky the reduced beer…) I’m getting so much more done each day and I feel I’m managing stress a lot better too. It’s been 13 days and I plan to keep up with its to see where this takes me. It’s the same thing I did in the early 2010’s when I got to a crazy low weight. That’s was before a wife and kids so I have no delusions of getting back to that - but closer to that. I’m actually looking forward to my next checkup at the doctor to see how this change effects my numbers.

194 today. My mind wants to do more and go harder but my body won't let me. Every time I try to do anything that makes me breathe hard enough that I have to open my mouth I start coughing and can't stop. I tried some weights yesterday and even that got it going. I just want to ride a trail(or even the roads) somewhere and not just soft pedal in my cellar. It's very discouraging even though I know it's temporary. At least my weight is going in the right direction.

When we were racing together I was 155lbs. That seems absolutely insane to me at this point.

Zero progress for me this week. My 5 year old's birthday party, a bunch didn't show, enabled me to eat a few bahn mi sandwiches, cake, and cup cakes. Mid week family vacation=lots of junk food. And stopped at one of our favorite vegan junk food places in Philly on the way back home. No exercise. Same weight as last week's weigh-in.

There's a good thread on coming back from Covid here. Worth skimming through.
