244.5

Didn't eat that great, but still lost most of my vacation weight.  Hoping to get close to 240 this next week.

Still struggling with my leg.  Went to the doc and got an x-ray Wednesday, but still waiting on the results.

Much better week this week for everybody!  Down 24.5 as a group, and still have @PoHoosierand @CTrojan88 to weigh in.  Should be our 2nd or 3rd best week overall.

I know that I am not on the team but wanted to share anyway.  10 days ago I started out at 232 when I began the KETO diet.  I really have stuck to it and my carbs are below 20g per day. I have not been able to exercise because of my knee issues but I am proud to announce that today I stepped on the scale at 215.  15 pounds to go and I will be happy.

Awesome! KETO and other similar forms really do work. When I was back in my 230/40 range way back when I went total carb free (without exercising) and had great results. Congrats to you! Diet is and will always be king!

I would say the main thing with any diet is finding something you enjoy doing. I know a few people who loved keto for a while, but they didn't end up sustaining it. If you're enjoying doing it, keep kicking butt with it.

I'm not an expert by any means, but I've found that if your diet is work, it won't work.

Also, @Billingsley99 you're more than welcome to join the party if you want to. I don't mind adding people to the list at any time, and newcomers are always welcomed.

I don't want to be a bother but if you don't mind adding me to the list. Thanks.  Support is key, wish I would have found this thread sooner.

Not a problem.  Already got you added.  Do you want 200 for your goal weight or something else?

In case you didn't see it in the tread, Sunday is our weigh in day.  It can be any time you choose.  Some people are busy Sunday and get there weight in Saturday or Monday, and that's fine too.

Expert or not, that last sentence is dead on.

Well the hospital did have a little to do with my weight loss!  Yes I was at the neurosurgeon's office this past Monday.  The CT scan showed my brain was fine.  Got the 15 staples removed from my skull.  I still struggle with memory during the 3 week period before my surgery.  I am a little shaky walking at the moment.  Time will tell.  But I did get my driving privileges back.  She did recommend a high protein diet for me.

Good luck with those things. Sounds like some good progress!

200.4.  Not a productive week for me.  Poker night did not help me.  

More importantly, how did you fare at the table?
