Thanks, I think this time I know what I need to do. My form has improved and I think I've identify my shoulders as the weak point, I'll find those 15 pounds somewhere.

Good luck with your goals next year :hellyeah:

Also on an unrelated note, I've gotten super into the stair machine. Gonna give that a recommend for anyone that has a gym membership but hasn't found a cardio machine they really like. I did 80 floors in 20 minutes the other day and felt really good 8)

I mentioned it earlier but stair climbing has been a game changer for my cardio. Iím down about 10 pounds from a recent high (went from 200 and change to 190 and change) without really intending too I just love climbing those stairs

exercise isnít my problem, my problem is my eating habits have been pretty bad lately and Iíve been eating too much.

thanks for the app recommendations, I have heard mixed things about myfitnesspal so I was mainly looking for alternatives to look into before picking one.

i also recommend eating more fats vs. carbs.

fats keep your belly full for longer time, so you'll fee less hungry throughout the day

i try for 50% protein, 35% fat, 15% carbs most days but YMMV

itís really easy to drop 10 if you are super overweight. so if you really want to drop 10 start by gaining 50

i drank a lot of booze this summer and it started to show. the constant heat waves made it very easy to drink beer after work or after the kids went to bed, almost every day.

i stopped putting sugar in my coffees and stopped drinking alcohol at home (which is 95% of the time i drank alcohol)

i also got an exercise bike and stuck it in the middle of my living room so its an ever present reminder/nag that i should stop being a lazy rear end

i find it's easy to do 15-30 minutes on the bike here or there while watching a youtube when i otherwise would have done zero exercise

resisting snacks especially before bed is the hardest part for me. the only thing that works is to simply not buy them

i don't do any kind of calorie counting or weight tracking, rather just notice clothes getting looser.

You can't spell 'vector field' without me, Professor!

I started doing high intensity interval training classes with some friends last fall to lose weight, and while my clothes don't seem to fit any better my arms have never been better-defined and my insomnia is much improved, so I guess that's a win
