W28D0 – BABC

This morning, I read this article. Now, I’m not advocating for trying this – I’m only pointing out that he limited his caloric intake. I’ll see if I can find the other studies i’ve read, recently, that talk about limiting caloric intake is the biggest help in losing weight.
Summary: he limited his intake to 2000 calories and worked out 45 mins a day 5 days a week and it took him 6 months to lose 60 pounds.
A “normal” and “healthy” weight loss. I limit my caloric intake to < 1700 cal a day and attempt 30 mins of workout at least 3 days a week. When I up that to 60 mins (which is up to 5 miles of walking at my pace). I can drop a lot of size and up to 15 pounds a month. I have a friend who walk/ran 5 miles a day for 60 days and dropped more than 50 pounds… but I don't know about his eating b/c he said he just couldn't afford food – so that's not healthy at all.
In any case, I think sticking to a caloric restriction, with good foods, and working out 5 days aweek for six months would go a long way. The problem is the 6 months. If I’d stuck with a plan for six months straight starting in 2008 when I first realized I weighed 284 pounds, I’d’ve been done. Being fat is killing me. Each day, this last week, I’ve woke up and said “Earn this” and it’s felt great… except the fn seat on my bike.
measurements are coming up later this morning *crossing fingers*

measurements are getting better.  Week one of riding a bike 30 mins a day 5 days a week is complete.  I don’t know what my plan is for the week.  Mostly, I just want to ride the bike at least 5 days at 30 minutes each.  I would really like to do 5 days at 60 minutes total.  I also really want to get on a scale and see what’s going on; that is secondary to just eating my caloric limit with what I should be eating and working out.
