Well, my restructured plan (of eating 1200-1300 cals/day of non freggies and unlimited freggies) was going ok, but it was kind of a pain to have to keep recalculating my calories to figure out where I was. So I'm going to give eating as many fru... Read more
My Food Plan
So, for the last 14 months, I've been on Weight Watchers, with some success. Before I dragged myself in there, I was up to 208lbs, and was feeling fat and gross all around. Even my fat clothes weren't fitting. I decided I needed some accountabil... Read more

Level 2 Continued...
Overall, my Fastbreak was a success. Level 2 is turning out to be a failure. There's lag, and it's apparently taking days to respawn.
Last Wednesday was 3 pieces of Jet's pizza. Woke up super bloated.
Last Thursday - Sunday I was at... Read more
I finished my Fastbreak, doing pretty well. I ate within my calorie range on 11 out of 13 days, and got 20+ sparkpoints on 12 out of 13 days. My 10+minute per day workouts weren't so hot.
I now have new goals -

Fastbreak - Day 7
I'm 1 week in, and I'm doing all right. I have stayed within my calorie range every day (1400-1550, + 240 on days I lift, to accommodate a delicious shake to help repair my muscles).
I've been getting 20+ Sparkpoints daily - typically by... Read more
Fastbreak - Day 4
I must have been super bloated when I weighed myself on Saturday morning, because I have lost SIX POUNDS since then. Even my rings are fitting better. And it's only been FOUR DAYS. WTF!?
I'm not complaining. Seeing that big 200 was a li... Read more
Fastbreak - Day 2
So far I'm on a roll. It's only day two, so there's that. But still! Two days!
Today I got on the scale again. One of my plans is to weigh myself more often. The more I weigh myself, the better I am about things. I'm not really concer... Read more
Where I Went
So, I was missing for about 5 months. Last I left off, I stopped doing Drop 2 Sizes. I did Strongifts 5x5 for a little while in the interim, and then I started New Rules of Lifting: Supercharged in January. I just started Basic Training III y... Read more
So... I was dreading my workouts. I hated following the meal plan. And I gave it six weeks. I initially lost a bit of fat, maybe (or bloat?) but after that - I just didn't want to do it anymore. It was making me crazy.
And so my update ... Read more
Drop Two Sizes Thermometer Jeans Update
Well, I tried on my thermometer jeans. I wasn't feeling too confident because, well - I'm not really restricting much. Week 1 I ate an average of 2400 calories/day. Week 2 was an average of 2300. This week, I am aiming for 1800-2100 calories... Read more
Drop Two Sizes Update
Well, I just finished my second week of Drop 2 Sizes yesterday. So far, it's going ok. The workouts are all right, though I do miss the big lifts. It has goblet squats (where you hold a dumbbell with two hands) and Romanian Deadlifts (where y... Read more
