"trying" is a bit of a strong word but I sure would like to lose weight. I'm in the "thinking about doing something to lose weight" stage. I've been there for quite some time now.

I'm beginning to head that way.... heavier than I'd like but afraid I have to do something about it to change it.

Wow, there seems to be mixed results here...
I swim 3-4x / week to ratchet up my Base Metabolic Rate and for cardiovascular fitness.
If I refuse the "free" meals at the Staff Dining Room,(Here in prison we may not carry in any food,so the prison feeds us,as well as the inmates, sometimes their chow is better than ours) I can quickly lose weight,as my wife doesn't cook much,(I lost my zeal for cooking,myself).

A tip from a Dietician: Do not attempt to start a Diet from now until after Superbowl.Statistics reveal that those who do,are highly likely to get very frustrated.
Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life.

Fear God and keep His commandments,for this is the whole duty of man. Ecc.12:13

I get up, walk two steps, fall down and get up again only to repeat the same...if you meet me face down on life's pathway,please help me to get up.

I have lost thirty lbs since December. My goal is not a number but a result. I am trying to get a sixpack by Christmas. I will probably wind up between 190-195 at Christmas which will probably not give me the six pack. Either way I will take a week off of diet and the. Try very hard to pack on 15-20 lbs of muscle. That should take me all year. This is the most positive way I. An approach my surprisingly severe midlife crisis

If anyone is looking for advice or help I. ReChing their fitness goals I would be more than happy to help.

I need to lose 2", not 2#. I can not seem to get back on the diet that worked so well for me.

My Thanksgiving Day Diet did not work as intended.

I'll join you all right after the Thanksgiving leftovers are gone.

Oh, and thanks for not using the word "loose"in the title of this thread.

Stop being a fatty.

Seriously though, I'm right there with you. It doesn't get any easier the older you get either. I bought some free weights recently with good intentions but they are already collecting dust just like my treadmill. I've got to get a handle on it too. We should have a CPS weight loss accountability thread where we check in with photos of us on a scale weekly. Perhaps we could sweeten the incentives by putting together a tobacco & pipe prize for the person who loses the most weight in a certain time period.
Oh my, now something else in common with you folks.
Me, too.

Just for the record, I meant photos of the scale showing our weight. I don't want to see you guys standing on a scale. That stuff belongs in the favorite horror movie thread.
