Tonight I weigh 200 lbs & some ounces. Which is 25 lbs less than I weighed on October 1 and 7 lbs more than my doctor says I ought to weigh. Sometime this week I'll be able to move the big weight on the scale from 200 to 150 and the little weight from 1 to 49, which will be a big deal. For me. I will then celebrate by eating a pumpkin pie so that I can celebrate it again next week. *
If this makes you feel all happy, let me remind you that we're still looking for donations to help people get to the gym who can't afford it. More on that here.
(*Just kidding about the pumpkin pie. I shall likely celebrate with a fine lentil & celery soup.)

WOO HOO! & Congratulations! I know how hard this ride can be (and am about to journey down it again, myself) so thanks for being inspiring!
we have your book! it's on the night stand!
i just started into this highly recommended end-all-be-all food advice called eat to live by joel fuhrman, md. it promises 20 or more lbs off in 6 weeks. i have friends who have lost weight, and kept it off and felt healthier with more energy than i had ever felt. so, i'm giving it a kick. i'll let you know how it goes. meanwhile, lay off the wheat and dairy, meat and oil. i've already lost weight doing just that. eat fresh fruits and veggies, and olive oil, fish is good protein, but quinoa is a good veggie substitute for gmo grains. gmo = (goddam meat organs)
congrats on the pending milestone achievement!
lentil and celery soup sounds absolutely delicious for dinner, but what about the middle ground of celebrating with one generous slice of said pumpkin pie, not a whole pie, as dessert? or a single-serving-sized pie? technically i think they're called tarts...hmmm...
dammit, now you've got me wanting pie.

Congratulations, Kyle! What do you know.. regular exercise and improved nutrition actually work!
As a recovered anorexic/bulimic and former compulsive exerciser/calorie-counter/food restricter who still has a fucking hard time with food, exercise, and body image, I once really believed that eating that eating a slice of pie might make me gain back 25 pounds. I'm here to say -- more for myself and others like me than for you, since I am sure you know -- it will not! Especially if your habits of exercise and moderate eating are already consistent. I support the Michael Pollan philosophy, which, besides the well-known directives "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants" includes "permission" to enjoy treat foods as treats, that is, on special occasions and not every day. And, you know, not a whole pie at once. ;)
YAYAY! Go you!
My bf and I started a diet after your post asking for people's stories. I lost 4 pounds in the first 2 weeks; my bf has lost 5 pounds. After the new year we plan to start hitting the gym to add to the health plan. Thanks for inspiring me to crest that mountain.
Good on you, Kyle! :D I'm off to the dietician today to see if I've made any headway weight-wise. I'm loving the gym and have already been able to up the weights a notch since I started. I'm still dreaming of a bike challenge next summer, not sure what it will be yet.
I'm still planning to donate to the gym memberships fund, but I have to wait for a client payment to come in so it might not be for a couple of weeks yet.
