*sigh* At the beginning of the month, I get my daily check ins ready, with the date, day of week, ect ect, then I just need to fill in how I did, was so confused, wondering how google docs erased a whole week of my daily logs. Instead it was a copy/paste fail and had the same week listed twice and didn’t notice. My Sunday check in should have been dated 10/10 not 10/03. Oh well, proof that am only human.
Under Calories: Yes
Exercise: Yes, 45 minute walk. Had energy after work today surprisingly

Hey guys and gals. I guess I posted this in the wrong group and I really am in this one. I posted this last Friday 10/08.
This is Paul, first post in this group.
I sought out this group challenge as a way to keep me accountable to weighing in each week, monitoring and making progress, in spite of whatever challenges come my way.
I am a dad of 5 kids, 1 a sophomore in college, one a h.s. senior, a 9th grader, 7th grader, and 4th grader.
We live in Minnesota.
I work from home and also lead a cycling club.
My wife has been sick off and on for the past 6-8 years (Lyme's and Mold Toxicity/Auto immune) which leads me to a lot of emotional eating and drinking that doesn't make me feel better or resolve anything.
In January 2021 I was the heaviest I have ever been at 296lbs. Scary.
I have large Scandinavian genetics - my uncles and dad are all big men. I like to think I am more muscle than fat but that doesn't really matter on the scale and with my fitness goals and interests.
I love biking and ride a long distances, swimming laps at the Y, and try to keep up with all my kids' activities while making sure the house doesn't fall apart when my wife needs the day off due to illness.
I have two goals for 2021 in regards to cycling. To finish a 120 hilly gravel bike event in Iowa - SWIGG at the end of June and a 100 mile hilly gravel event mid-May in S. MN. I have attempted both events multiple times and they are the hardest 10 hours on a bike you will ever do.
I know my wattage/power on the bike will increase just by cutting weight. I also know that I cannot cut weight through biking alone. I need to end the week in a calorie deficit.
Recovering after having COVID in April has taken way longer than expected and my biking gains this summer less than I had hoped for. So with a renewed focus, I am starting this October to lose weight and gain biking fitness. I bought a smart bike trainer and training software, Trainer Road, and am committed to completing their training plan to achieve my bike goals for next year.
I am committed to losing weight through improving my diet, cutting calories, drinking more water, and making smart substitutions when I am hungry.
Friday morning, U.S. Central time weigh in.
Today's weight: down 2 lbs this week to 278. Progress.
Not as much bike activity this week as I have a race coming up on Saturday (tomorrow).

Having a bit of trouble staying on track. I was down to 167.8 two days ago but one dinner out and back up to 170. Ugh. I literally had half a salad and half a side order of pasta and one piece of bread. Well, wine as well. But really 2 lbs for that? It is ridiculous!!
