  • I like drinking alcohol too but the reason I gained weight before was that I was drinking too much alcohol and the reason I lost weight before was because I stopped drinking alcohol. This is the 3rd time that I've stopped drinking alcohol to lose weight. I just did it earlier than before with weight gain of "only" 15# this…

  • Started my AF diet on 04/02/2024 at 174.5#. I've been AF for the 20 days since then and weighed-in today 04/21/2024 at 168.5#. That's a 6# wt loss in about 3 weeks or about 2# per week. My goal weight is 160# -- another 8.5# away My weight has plateaued at 168.2-168.6# for the past 5 days, which is how these things go. It…
  • Currently my only regular physical activity (apart from walking/hiking) is rowing. I row 10k meters/day, 5 days/wk on my Concept 2 rower in two 5k meter sets which each take about 35 mins and burns about 250 cals. So, I burn about 500 cals/day, 5 days/wk or a total of 2500 cals/wk, doing this, which I've now been doing…
  • Vacuum sealing is the best way to freeze anything for later use. For liquids and/or soft foods, freeze them 1st in a suitable container or wrapping and then remove the item(s) and then vacuum seal them. You can sous vide and/or defrost & cook vacuum sealed foods in whatever way you like.
  • 1st report since I started my AF weight loss program on 04/02/2024: 11 Days AF: 04/02/204-04/12/2024 Weight loss: 3.5# -- 171.0 down from 174.5 Goal weight: 160 -- 11# to go.
  • Lost 40# twice -- 12 & 8 years ago -- by eliminating beer & sodas from my diet. Don't drink sodas at all anymore but still drink beer with a meal when I eat out which is only occasionlly. My weight has dropped to as low as 150 in the past (which was too light for me) and stabilized at 160 (which is a better weight for me).…
  • Just logged back onto MPF because my weight has started creeping up again. I gained/lost 40# twice in the past 12 years due to drinking/eliminated alcohol from my diet. I attribute the recent gain almost entirely to my daily alcohol consumption which has also crept up. So, I just decided to just stop drinking to lose the…
  • I just turned 72 and, yes, I exercise less not than when I was 62 and this is mainly due to age. Use to do a lot of heavy lifting plus 3x10+ pullups & 3x20+ pushups 3x's weekly but had to stop doing most of that due to an age detriorated right elbow, not arthriris but debilatating just the same. If/when I do any weight…

  • There are only 2 types of machines one could call a "skirower." Either a NordicTrack or a Concept 2 SkiErg. in either case, it would be extremely difficult (but not impossible) to exert 1k cal in 75 mins but the level of work (or exertion) would have to be over twice the 500 cals that I routinely "burn" on my C2 Rower in…
  • I "get" what's happening but it's irrelevant to me so far. When it's no longer irrelevant, then I'll consider other options which I certainty know exist. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. Ciao, baby! B)
  • Easy enough to enter the info manually if it's not already in the DB. So, IMO, no reason to get in a huff an uninstall what is still one of the best cal counting apps that's still available for FREE.
  • i routinely row 50k meters per wk (10k per day, 5 days a wk). Rowed 2.5 Million meters last year and am up to 750k meters this year so far So, the August Dog Days Challenge really isn't much of a challenge for me.
  • For a woman of your age/size, you look to be in good shape as the results of the scan indicate. If you WANT to increase your muscle/bone strength, resistance training would be useful but you will not necessarily reduce your body fat % (which really is not an issue based on the scan) doing so, unless you change what/how you…
  • I enjoy eating cheese and buy it now and then but not regularly. The only cheese that I stock/keep on hand are parm and pecorino that I use for pasta and risotto. My favorite cheese is brie or other creamy cheese variants. My favorite brand of this type is La Tur, which I discovered long ago, which has a bit more flavor…
  • If you have the will power, just quit "cold turkey." My father did it after many years of smoking nothing but Chesterfields. He still died of emphysema and developed a hole (fixed w/surgery) in his lung nonetheless. I quit "cold turkey" too but I had only smoked a few years in my years and, as far as I know, there have…
  • Look for the brand w/the most protein and lowest cals/fat for the lowest price. I'm not consuming powdered protein regularly any more but use to consume quite a bit in conjuction w/heavy lifting and I still have a lot of left over protein powder on hand. My favorite brands were Muscle Milk and MyProtein "whey protein…
  • I signed up for the The Stretch -- min 500m/day for 20 days in the month which in my case is actually 10k meters/day for the 20 days or a total of 200k for rhe month. I also signed up for the Virtual Team Challenge of Jan 1-31. My total meters rowed for the month will be the same as it always is at about 210-220k meters,…
  • Nope. Stopped using my expensive LeMond RevMaster Pro spin bike enirely after I bought my less expensive Concept2 rower about 6 yrs ago which is currently my only for of exercise which I use to row 10k meters per day, 5 days a wk . Tried selling it a couple of times w/o sucess because I didn't want to price it so low that…
  • Thanks! I actually finished the challege today w/a total of 210k meters and a total of $6.40 earned for my charity. I'm sure you'll be able to row the remaining 1,988 meters that you need to row to finish the challenge w/200k meters tomorrow. Even at my slow pace, you'd get it done in less than 12 mins. Just do it early to…
  • The only regular excerise I currently do is row 10k meters/day, 5 days a week. This translates into 1 hour of exercise and about 520 cals burned each day. I still own an expensive spin bike plus a lot of weight lifting equipment and cross fit exercise gear that I hardly use any more. I just row instead because IMO there…
  • Just hit 200k meters for the challenge this evening. Will finish w/210k meters tomorrow as scheduled. C2's "contribution" to my designated charity - the WHO Covid-19 vaccine campaign - is $6 to date. C2's total contribution limit is $70k for the challenge and $55,22.125 has been raised so far.
  • Congrats! As I recall, you were trying to do "catch up" to get to 200k. So, I feel your "pain." ;) FWIW, it's not hard for me to do 200k meters in a month if I row consistently but "catch up" is a b*tch! I always row at least 200k meters during each month long challenge just by doing 10k meters/day, 5 days/wk but when I…
  • Dup deleted.
  • They are very thick/tough and are NOT easily cut w/a knife (or even a handsaw) but it should not be a problem w/a rotary cut off tool w/the proper cutting disk (which if you don't have one already, can be cheaply purchased at Harbor Freight) but you may have to experiment w/different cutting disks to find the one that…
  • While I believe in eating "healthy" (which probably does not mean the same to me as it does to you) is a "good" thing, I am not obsessive about it. Obviously, eating "healthy" almost certainly has some correlation w/longevity but so do a lot of other factors, like genetics (which may be the most important factor of all).…
