  1. Most of my fat is either with the protein (like salmon or eggs) or I’ll toss the veggies with olive oil, or a side of sliced avocado, or a few walnuts. I’ll eat more if that’s what I need to do but I’m feeling good food wise and not like I’m depriving myself or hungry. I have some light weights that I add to my walks. A 2lb weight belt and 2lb ea wrist/hand weights. Not much until I’ve worn them for 4 miles and then they seem to feel like 40lbs. And man. Are there hills on my walks. I get something like 25 flights of stairs on my Fitbit because of all the hills. The stupid hills
  2. Basicly, W30 works for me as a lifestyle probably 90% of the time. I never eat out much to begin with, and for social activities around food - usually I either eat prior, or there is something if not completely compliant then really close to it and for a very special occasion, I’ll indulge a rare addition of rice or small amount of honey/cane sugar.

  4. I lost 50lb in 2013. I kept it off for a few years. Then life kinda went to heck in a handbasket. Thyroid went kaput, marriage issues, had baby #11, took care for a dying father, a kid in crisis... and now that the dust is settling a bit - here I am needing to lose weight again. Poop. But I’ve lost 30lbs since I signed up for HealthyWage back in Dec 2018. I figured I’d do what worked last time and $ is a great additional motivator. I’ve got another 20lb to win my wager and get paid. Then I’d like to lose another 15 on top of that to reach my final weight goal. That would be going from 202l
