are you weighing yourself first thing in the morning?
After stopped doing MMA I put on a bit of weight. I managed to lose it but I had to get quite OCD about it. I have a spreadsheet with all the foods I eat all broken down by cals / protein / fats / carbs. That way I knew exactly what I was taking in. I got good results when I dropped carbs down to 30g per day and replaced the cals with fats. I also had to stop eating about 4 hours before bed which went against the bodybuilding stuff that Im used to but it was effective for me. Sometimes its just trial and error until you find the best approach.

Yes mate,

Same routine every morning, get up, go to the loo, wash, brush teeth and weigh. I know people don't advocate daily weighing but it comes from my body building days when I was trying to put it on. It also helps when you can see your lightest day of the week. Sometimes your "official" weighing day can be heavier than last week but your lightest day of the week can be lighter than the lightest day the previous week, that helps keep you going. I have a spreadsheet with graph for my weight going back to 2000. I think a part of it has to be muscle growth due to "muscle memory".

I've actually got a bit taller. I've added a few yoga poses through Wii Fit Plus, on one of them, when I'm on the balance board I touch the ceiling with my fingers but I didn't a couple of weeks ago.

I used to be crazy with my food when I was bodybuilding. Weighed everything and worked out calories, % carbs, % protein and % fats. That was in the days of 60% carbs, 30% protein and 10% fats.

I'm not going to give up though, I don't get time on Tuesdays or Wednesdays but every other day I exercise for 30 minutes. Most Sundays I wash my car which takes an hour to an hour and a half, then come in and exercise and on the Sundays that we don't have my wife's dad for dinner we go to National Trust properties and do a good walk, Saturdays we find places to walk too, could be a National Trust or country villages or along rivers etc. On top of this, I'm on my feet for nine hours a day doing manual work.

My doc once said I have a strange metabolism and seem to resist weight loss. My weight goes on so easily it's unreal, I can put half a pound a day on when on holiday and it doesn't come down. It's a one way street laugh.gif

I can walk up very steep hills none stop and I see people much smaller and much fitter looking than me stopping for breath. They look at me gone out I walk on by biggrin.gif

Cheers duder wink.gif

Well,

Yesterday morning I was 282.375 (282 3/8) lbs so that's nearly a pound gone since last week and just over 2 and a half pounds since starting on November 6th. I haven't exercised this last week due to a case of man flu, I still have the cough lingering so anything do to get a bit warm starts me coughing.

Anyway, I'm not letting it stop me, if I could do that every month for a year that would be 25lbs gone.

Gotta keep going.
