Jenny and I use a phone app called MyFitnessPal to track our food, exercise and weight loss. Now you can see how I’m doing by clicking on the link up above. It will likely only update once a week because that’s how often I weigh myself. If I do it too often I get frustrated but I find I typically lose somewhere between 2 and 3 lbs a week or at least I have since beginning my diet.

As of today I’m down 20 lbs with 90 more to go.

    20# less is much better than 20# more. I weigh myself just once a month, on the same scales at the cardiologist’s scales. Seems to work for me; I have stayed the same, but would like to drop another two pounds, into another 10s. That’s my goal for this month. Heather has invited me over for Easter Dinner, but she is calorie conscious, so I am not as worried as I would be in a restaurant. And she’s a good cook, too. You don’t know you are eating low calorie.

  2. Mom says:

    That looks like a very neat program, the way you can eat different things. It should work for you. How about sending a picture every time you lose 50#? It is much easier for a man than for a woman; I don’t know why. It doesn’t seem fair, from a woman’s viewpoint.

    Cool! It’s good to have a partner (Jenny) for encouragement and accountability. We’ll be following along.

  4. Don says:

    I need a new scale. It says I weigh more today than last week yet I was below my calorie goal every day.

  5. Dale says:

    That’s pretty cool, Don. I too am on a diet, it’s called the AT diet – eat anything you like, as much as you wantand still loose weight.

  6. Don says:

    I would love to be on your diet Dale. Maybe when I retire for real.

  7. Donna says:

    Looks like you are creeping toward the 1/3 of the way mark. Yay!!

  8. Don says:

    Getting closer. It’s been slow going the last 2 weeks but perhaps I need to not go for lunch on Thursdays and Fridays.

    Take a walk instead! You’ll be amazed at the difference it makes on the scales. I find when I keep up with mine, my weight stays the same, but when I skip a couple days, I creep up a pound. What kind of work out program are you doing?
