Cool.... the only thing I wonder is that you are spacing your meals pretty close together still. You should space then 2.5 to 3 hours apart, not 2 hours. Also, what time do you get up? You really should have that first one within the first hour of getting up in the morning, and unless you are in bed by 10, I would have that last one about an hour before bed.
The basics of the program are that while you are up and active, you should be eating one of your meals every 3 hours, even if you are up 20 hours... ;)

Keep at it, and yeah, we can lose overnight.... its just all about metabolism.

thanks for the tips mike. I thought that it was every 2-3 hours, but I'll definately try to space out more.

I'm waking up a bit later than I usually do, so when I had my first meal at 11 i had woken up at about 10.30

So let me see if I understand this. If I am up for 30 hours straight, hypothetically, I should be eating 10 meals?


Thanks


Yesterday looked like

scrambled eggs w/onions @ 10

swiss mocha shake @ 12.15

apple cinnamon oatmeal @ 2.30

chicken noodle soup @ 4.15

steak & cucumber @ 6.45

vanilla pudding @ 10

That's correct.
Hypothetically, if you never slept, you'd never stop eating....:)

so yesterday was a little disappointing. only dropped .4 lbs. today was better though, dropping 1.8 lbs (switched lean and green from steak to salmon could be the reason?)

anyway, im down to 272.5. just 1.5 lbs away from 20 lbs/ 2/14 of the way there

Sounds like you are doing well! Keep up the good work and don't let daily weighing get you down. Your weekly results are usually more encouraging than the daily ones.

Tex is right abotu the fish! Omega 3's and such. Remember that salmon is one of those in the higher fat content catagory. I like to put tuna over a salad sometimes. I don't even need dressing when I do that.

I'm not such a huge fan of tuna. I wrap the salmon in aluminum foil with some pepper and lemon juice, stick it in the oven wait 15 minutes or so and it comes out nice.

down another .7 lbs today, so at 271.8. just .8 lbs to 20

I think on Sunday I'll stop the daily weighing in and either do it weekly or bi-weekly

I'm kind of dreading the one month plateau that lots of people seem to experience. any tips on how to power through?


anyhow, staying on plan, enjoying myself. 4th of july picnic might be challenging, but ill just grill up a chicken breast. I just discovered that the 5-7 oz was when the food was cooked, so I've got to adjust for that.

have a happy 4th all

You are doing really well!
Don't even worry about a plateau until it hits! Some people don't hit them for months. Just focus on staying on plan! Keep up the great work.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

so things have been going well. staying totally on plan, but 2 days ago my sleep got messed up as well as my meal schedule due to the sleep, so I ended up not losing anything (and for some reason actually gaining .7 lbs). Anyway, today after getting good sleep yesterday and being on a normal meal schedule, I lost the weight I gained plus .9 lbs, so I moved from 271.8 (272.5 with the weight gain), to 270.9.

270.9 - 2/14 of the way there, 20 lbs down

yesterday I went out for dinner for the first time with family. Got small lamb chops and beet salad and it turned out well on the scale. Nice to know I can eat out and stay on plan

anyway, started with a blueberry oatmeal about 45 mins ago. heres to another day

oh yeah - from now on, I'm not gonna weigh myself every day. I'll do the Sunday morning roll call, and I'll also weigh myself Thursday morning. So, for the Thursday morning one I'll have 4 days of medifasting and for the Sunday I'll have 3.

How often to weigh is definitely a personal preference. I've been listening to several podcasts about weight loss, and every one of them says that folks who have lost weight and kept it off all blog, keep a journal, are accountable to a group, and weigh daily. When I lost weight on MF a year ago, I just weighed once a week. I found it to be the most encouraging - it showed a lot of loss at once, and didn't show day to day fluctuations. This time I've found I like to weigh daily. It's really taught me a lot about how what I eat and what activities I do each day affect my weight for that day. There are days every week I forget to weigh before I drink water or even leave for work, though. There's definitely no wrong answer on when to weigh, as long as you do periodically and consistently, which you've been good about already!
