My current weight is 235Shocking Scientific News on Weight LossAccording to this article, you should avoid sugar, get sleep, avoid alcohol, exercise more, and stop smoking.WHAT REVOLUTIONARY ADVICEThis is what makes this show harder and harder to produce. I started this show in 2008 with the goal being that a weekly show would help me hold myself accountable. It did. Then id didn't. Then it didn't.While I've loved inspiring people to keep trying to lose weight, my audience has had more weight loss success than I have.It's Not You - It's MeConsequently, I'm starting to lose my passion for producing the show. I'm running out of things to talk about. This doesn't mean I don't appreciate you listening, but I'm just bring honest, that some of the thrills of doing the show are depleting.New Hosts on the HorizonI'm looking into some new people to co-host and eventually take over the show. It's very early, and admittedly for a guy who

  • The Mental Reason Why Weight Loss is Hard

    02/08/2021 Duração: 19min

    Weigh in:In my last episode, I was up to 235. This episode as I end July, I'm at 232.96. Part of this success was based on a few simple practices. BECOME A LOGICAL LOSERIf you need moral support, and bonus inspiration, become a logical loser at www.logicallosers.comWhy Weight Loss is HardIn listening to Mel Robbins, Who is the author of the book The 5 Second Rule: Transform Your Life, Work, and Confidence with Everyday Courage (get the audiobook for free) she brought up something that is so simple, and yet makes so much sense.

    WEIGH-INI'm up a touch (235.9). What is upsetting is before the July 4th holiday I was actually down to 233. Time to refocus, and for me, I'm being "active" but not "exercising." AMAZON HALO GETS A NEW FEATUREThe Amazon Halo (their version of a fitbit) has announced a  new feature where using your camera on your it puts you through a test and provides you with a movement score. If you do "not so good" it provides exercises for you to get back in shape. I plan on doing this as I realize the older I get the more putting on my shoes feels like an Olympic event. The Halo is $99, and comes with six months of membership. Then it's only $4/month (much cheaper than apple). More informationGRANDMA IS BUSTEDI was watching (I think) 90-day fiance. A woman who was overweight said she didn't know why she was fat.

  • Did You Hear What You Ate?

    Today I talk about a way to be honest with yourself along with a new protein drink I'm trying and my first steps with a new rowing machine. WEIGH-INIn the last episode, I was 235.7, and in this episode, I'm at 235.2. While I would appreciate a larger number, I am grateful to be going in the right direction.SAY YOUR MEALS OUTLOUDIn the past, I've been in some weird health-related situations. When I said, "OK, I'm in my 50's, I have a tightness in my chest, and I'm having a hard time taking a deep breath" hear those words out loud inspired me to go to the hospital. When you hear yourself say, "I could drink some Huel right now and it will tie me over until dinner, or I can catch some hamburgers in the dive-thru, it can make your choices a little more easy to see (hear) which one is the better choice. You may hear it in your head, but hearing the words come out of your mouth can be more powerful and inspire you to make a better choice. HUEL?Huel is "Human Fuel." It'

  • Tips to Cut Back on Sugar

    31/05/2021 Duração: 26min

    WEIGH INWeigh In: 235.7 (down from from 237)Today we are looking at Sugar. Depending on who you read the recommended amount of Sugar is25g for women38 g for men.According to this video she said the world health recommends 50g or less with a goal of 25 g. (four grams of sugar is 1 teaspoon of sugar).This is not so much the sugar that comes in food, but the sugar that is added.Some associations say 10 g per day. The bottom line is, if you're listening to this podcast my guess is you're getting more sugar than you need (I know I am and in June I'm going to purposely try to cut back).The fun thing about sugar is it has 60 NAMES (WTF?!?!). see http://sugarscience.ucsf.edu/hidden-in-plain-sight/#.YLVHS6hKiUk (right-hand side column)Become a Logical LoserDo you get value out of this podcast?

  • Losing Your Dad Bod

    10/05/2021 Duração: 21min

    Will Smith is going to document losing his "Dad bod" (a big belly) on YouTube. He didn't say how. When I asked uncle Google how to lose a Dad bod here are some tips from the top results:Lose Cardio and Do More Weight TrainingYou can get the benefits of cardio by doing HIIT like a weight lifting circuit trainingGet a Scale that shows weight and body fat. See the resources page. This way you can measure more than one level of fitness.Eat protein and veggies for breakfastDitch the booze and SodaDrink plenty of waterGet plenty of sleepTake Vitamin DInteresting InsightsChili is the ultimate dad bod buster thanks to its mix of vitamins, minerals, protein and, especially, its beans. Think of every bean as a little weight-loss pill. One American Journal of Clinical Nutrition study found that people who ate ¾ cup of beans daily weighed 6.6 pounds less than those who didn't even though the bean eaters consumed, on average, 199 calories more per day.Researchers at the University of Utah monitored the met

  • Resitance Bands Struggles

    26/04/2021 Duração: 25min

    Weigh In I'm sad to report that I'm up 1 lb and I'm at 235.Resistance Bands HurdlesI bought a Hyfit resistance band set. It's high-tech portable, and kind of geeky. It needs a door that opens out. All of the doors on my bedrooms open out (not in). I also noticed that to work all of your muscles you will need to work different muscles you will need to move the location of any door anchors. What I did was bought multiple door anchors and used a closet that I don't need to get into too often. I have one on the top and bottom and one in the middle. If you're new to resistance bands this has a set of bands and the door anchors I mentioned built-in.The last thing I bought was a good old-fashioned door stop. By adding three-door anchors and the doorstop, I think I've got a working system. As always be careful and contact a doctor before doing any exercise. Fit After FiftyI purchased a package from Fit After 50. Seems a little gimmicky, but I'm going to give it a shot

  • Do I Need Vitamin D?

    05/04/2021 Duração: 20min

    Vitamin D is a nutrient that your body produces when you are exposed to sunlight. It is also found in food, including fish and eggs. You might be wondering if you need Vitamin D in your diet because of the COVD (Climate Change). There have been many cases where people were deficient due to lack of exposure to the sun. In this blog post we will talk about what Vitamin D does for your body, how much do you need, and if it's possible to take too much?Weigh-InI am down a smidge to 234.5. I've removed cereal from my house (as I can't eat "just one bowl") and I'm slowly eating less meat after looking into a more plant-based lifestyle.What is All This Talk About Vitamin D?Vitamin D DeficiencyMuch of this information is from this website In the United States, 41.6% of the total population is deficient. The symptoms of a Vitamin D deficiency are not always as easy to identify, especially if you're out in the sun. Many people live healthy lives without experiencing problems from this conditi

As I mentioned in the Facebook group, you do have a GOOD VOICE that is cheering you on and the more you listen to that voice the louder it gets. I've been doing more exercise and hitting my goals, and consequently, the scale has been my friend. What is HyFit Gear? Check out this Video It's like resistance bands on steroids (and you only need ONE band). I actually ordered this and bought the deal where you get TWO YEARS of their app (you pay an extra $10 to save $180 seems like a no brainer)You can actually get started for $0 and then pay $15 for 12 months. I understand that more muscle = more calorie burning.

    Socrates said, "An unexamined life is not worth living."

As I wanted to be 231, I was off from my goal, but I did lose (so it could be worse)Leave Yourself Some MarginI had a hard drive crash. So many times when I went to do something I had to start from scratch. In the end I'm getting my files back (4 TB of data thanks to Backblaze) but the 9 days without the files I need to operate really put a new level of stress on me that had me taking more trips to the kitchen.

  • 10 Reasons Why Resolution Fail - And How to Create One That Doesn't

    28/12/2020 Duração: 32min

    It's that time of year again. If you're thinking, "Nah... resolutions are pointless." You might want to listen today as I spotlight 10 reasons we set ourselves up for failure.I personally started today (Sunday the 27th) filled with hope (and I share the "Stupid" thing I did to say goodbye to 20202).We think we read, we watch, but when it comes to action we don’t take enough action.Sometimes the reason is we set HUGE goals. After all, “Go big or go home,” is a common saying these days. Those huge goals can be intimidating and so we trigger negative thoughts in our heads as we start to think “We can’t do it.”If we do get past our negative thoughts we sometimes jump in with both feet and try to go from zero to 60 in record time. This leads to injury, burnout, and a pace that is not sustainable. We need to treat our weight loss like a marathon, not a sprint. Start with one step that you can accomplish then add another and another and help to make them habits.We have unrealistic expectation

  • Every Challenge is a Choice

    14/12/2020 Duração: 22min

    Weigh-in230 Lbs (up 1 lb from the last episode)After starting 75 hard, and completing 4 out of seven days I may have felt a bit dejected. This leads to some bad choices and heaven the weight gain. Meanwhile, I am starting to exercise more. Today is the first day of the week, and while I liked the idea behind 75 Hard, it seemed a bit too aggressive for me (which is somewhat the point). As I pointed out previously, I recently went through a move and many other things and just put my health on the back burner. In the end, what 75 Hard is about is pushing past that voice in your head that always finds excuses to allow you to make bad decisions (see above). What I’ve done is I decided to make my own contest.

    Today I cover a few topics such as Net Carb, Using a Lumen, and What is 75 Tough?WEIGH INIn my last episode I was 229, and after going up after Thanksgiving, I am back to 229 (so I'm the same). I am exercising more, and watching what I eat to I highly expect to be down next episode.Am I Burning Carbs or FatI've always viewed cards as kindling and fat is the "logs" of a fire. You need the kindling to start the fire, but to really stay warm you need to logs to catch fire. So you need both carbs and fat, but how do you know if you are burning carbs or fat?The Lumen Shows You What You're BurningI've been using this, and it takes all of five minutes to breath into the device in the morning, and it lets you know how you're doing, and what to do to achieve your goal. It somewhat looks like you are vaping.The device is scientifically proven to be accurate. It's not a toy, and previously this kind of test was only done at a medical facility and now you can do it at home. (right not ther

    16/11/2020 Duração: 23min

    This week, I'm ready to buckle down and get back on track. I found an article that has me wanting to mix in weight training. WEIGH IN229.3 - I consider this my new starting weight. LIFTING WEIGHTS - HOW TO GET STARTEDAccording to an article on Yahoo, you can try doing full body exercises every other date. It's really important to give your body time to recuperate. You need to let your body repair itself. This time is when your muscles come back bigger. WHY?According to that article, "Numerous scientific studies show that regular strength training can be a huge benefit to your health long-term by improving cognitive function, emotional and mental well-being, and mobility by reducing muscle loss as you grow older."Keep in mind your muscles burn calories, and you naturally lose your muscle as you get older (yes, that does suck). The less muscles you have, the less calories you burn. The less calories you burn the more weight you may put on. HOW HARD DO YOU PUSH?For muscle definition, choose a we
