I want to put on my game face.

Fat... Be Scared.

I'm trying to put together a list that would keep me accountable on all fronts...Yes, it would be hyper diligent, it's true...probably not sustainable for too too long, but enough to take someone's weight loss relationship to the next level.


I want to break up with the 200s. It just isn't really working for me anymore.

So, what would you track daily if you wanted to be ON FIRE?

Carbs, fiber, protein and total calories. And water.

Carbs, because I'm very carb-sensitive and I need to limit starchy carbs.
Fiber, because since I limit starchy carbs, I need to find good alternative sources of fiber.
Protein, because I'm working on increasing muscles and I need to eat adequate protein.
Total calories, because I suck at counting calories in my head.
Water, because I suck at account for how much I drink in a day.

Everything geoblewis said, plus I would get a HRM to track calories burned when exercising, and an activity monitor to track steps taken during the day.

No. of salads.

The optimal number is one for every day in the month which should equal half of the total meals you consume over the same period (IF it).

That would blast you out of the 200s, perhaps backwards and definitely sideways.

You clearly don't know what kind of calorically-dense, carb-filled salads I can eat!!

I would track my weight. I would keep a diary of my food...not everything I ate, but did I eat according to IE that day. Hmmm....maybe I should just do that!! I would track my fitness. That's it.

Ideally I should track my measurements and body fat composition. But doing measurements is such a faff. I really should do it once a month. I'm exercising so much that my body really should be changing in more ways than the scale.

Let me just say, I think I really, really, really need the same push. I love this TURBO charge idea. I think if I could just power through the rest of these 200s that would help me mentally so much.

So, if part of the plan is someone to do it with, COUNT ME IN!! Lets turbo charge this B!

I think thats probably perfect advice along with a SERIOUS dedication to a certain exercise plan. Im thinking about full body strength training twice a week (resistance machines) and 1.5 hrs of vigorous cardio (measured by heart rate, using CDC recommendations).

So want to do a turbo-charged April thread? For serious trackers...that mean serious business?


That vow to keep their head in the game all of April?

I track: water, calories, carbs, steps taken per day, calories burned per day (on my bodymedia fit band), minutes of excercise per day (I try to average 2 hours a day), and I intermittent fast from 9pm to 5 pm.

Does the mean your whole eating window is only 4 hours?

I do IF myself a lot, and my window is usually like 7 to 8 hours. You are a total rock star if you wait till 5pm at night to eat. LOL

I can wait till about 2pm, but it gets mighty tough from then on out. LOL

Yeah, my whole eating window is 4 hours. I have one meal at 5 and a snack at 7 or 8. I'm just not hungry for more.

Ok, here it is:

Stress. I'm going to track stress. Too much of that = bad things for me.

And, obsessiveness. I'm spending an inordinate amount of time researching weight-loss "stuff", and I've crossed the line from a healthy curiosity to an unhealthy obsession. I know what works for me, but I'm not doing it. I'm sabotaging myself and I know it. My goal for April is not to read any more weight-loss research "stuff".

All mental, all the time. I think I'm about to fail. And I don't want to do that.
