Also, I'm not sure yet how much walking I will do or just take one more rest day. Also 1 week with no diet coke only drinking plain water every day.)
    4/17 - 297 (Another day at 297 all I can say is it is better then 298, maybe tomorrow I will go back down to 296 we will see.)

    Yes, I agree that you have to change your life style and start to just eat and exercise the same way all year long. But when you have 100 to take off in the beginning you need to drop off the weight as fast as you can, When I said cheat day I was still below what the app calls out for in net calories for the day. But not as low as I wanted it to be, plus the food was not the right choices. Everyday life your food will not be perfect all the time so we have to learn to understand that with limited intake we can still eat them but look at it as cheating.

    The big one for me is Pizza!!!!

    Thanks for your input I hope you understand about what I'm saying about cheat day. If you think this is not the right way to think about it let me know.

    The point is that there is really no such thing as right and wrong food. If you like someting (e.g. pizza) eat it, in moderation. It's not about cheating or not cheating; it is about adapting your diet to provde you with a sensible calorie intake. You may need to try things out to see what you find filling within your calories. That might well not be pizza. Also, it seems to me that 10lbs a month is a pretty fast weightloss. Even with this much to lose I am wondering whether it might be better to aim for 2lbs per week?

    I gained about 8 lbs in 1 to 2 weeks before I said I'm done with this so not sure how much was clothing, water weight, weigh in time, etc. was done with the number on the scale. So my goal for the first month was to go down to 290 If I do great if not then next months goal will just stay the same at 280. But if I go down below the 290 mark next months goal is still staying at 280 or 10 lbs. I think that 10 is a very aggressive goal and as time goes by will slow it down but in my mind reach for the stars and be happy with any little gain!

    If you don't mind me asking, how come you weigh yourself every day?

    Just a habit been doing it for years but I finally decided to do something about the numbers going up. I did not mind it when it was staying at or below 280 (Shame on me). But over the last 3 months it slowly went up to the low 290's, then to 306 within a week or so. I said I have to start changing the way I live and eat so I want to track everything and log closely for the next few months then maybe slow down and see if everything stays the same or continue downward from a new why of living. The last time I was in the 270 range was back in 2017. I can't wait to get back to that level maybe 2 more months of changing my habits will send me to the new way of life with eating right and moving around more.
