I'm fat. I want to be a little fat but its gone a little to far. I want to weigh about 205 but I'm about 235 right now.
I've gained sympathy weight from my wife's pregnancy. Mostly its because I love food and when you like it this much it tends to stick with you. For a snack today we stopped and got a dipped cone from Dairy Queen. I'm not saying its not great to get a tasty treat but these daily occurrences make me fat. I would love to say that I don't spoil myself when I'm alone but that would be ridiculous.
Ready to move forward and be a lean mean machine. So I must diet. Should it be vegan, paleo, no carb, low carb, vegetarian, weight watchers, count calories, or caveman.
Vegan- No meat ever. No eggs. No can do. I will cheat and that's just the way it is.
Paleo, No Carb, Low Carb- No sweets no can do. I like sugar. I like white refined sugar.
Weight Watchers- I can eat what I want although the portions are for a small child.
If I exercise a lot then I will be able to eat the portions that I want.
It sounds like I've made up my mind but really I don't want to give up any of my little food pleasure. I eat about 6,000 calories a day. How much exercise do I need to do to still lose weight and eat the same?
I naturally burn about 2,500 calories a day so I just need to jump rope for an hour, run for a couple more hours, and backpack for 6-7 hours.
So between work and family I should be able to fit in 9-10 hours of pure exercise if I can adjust to living without sleep.
I think the plans got to consist of cutting my calories in half and exercising for 1 hour a day. It almost sounds easy when I say it like that. Now it's time for the doing. '
