Weightloss shit. 

‪I lost 100lbs in ten months and have a normal (whatever that means) BMI for the first time since high school. Not bad at 37. Haha. ‬

@FRENDEN woah, that’s impressive! mad props! *offers fistbump*

@gekitsu RECIPROCATES.

Weightloss shit. 

@FRENDEN Cool beans! Congrats! I just started tracking calories last week. Which app (if any) do you use?

Weightloss shit. 

@AesAthena Lose It! Just the free/basic version.

Weightloss shit. 

@FRENDEN I'm using MyNetDiary but it's not perfect for me. Do you have to pay to track protein, or note what time you ate?
(What I really want is a food app that looks like a blue-background JRPG inventory, so I can note how foods make me feel, among other things.)

Weightloss shit. 

@AesAthena It will track your macros if their (very comprehensive) food database has it as an entry. The pay version surfaces that info, the free doesn’t. I didn’t concern myself with macros a heap until I was closer to my goal weight.

Weightloss shit. 

@FRENDEN Thanks! I'm using the book "The Diet Fix" as my guide, he's all about protein throughout the day...I get the feeling I might be slacking on it.
What's surprising me most is how not-deprived I feel. It's nice!

Weightloss shit. 

@AesAthena Yeah. It’s certainly helpful to make sure you’re still getting the nutrition you need while you’re reducing intake. It can be tricky. Reddit has a really good r/loseit board fwiw.

I just kept to ~1500 calories and ate my normal foods. I let myself pause on vacation here and there (but not go crazy and use it as an excuse to totally derail) and played the long game. So long as I ate less calories than my TDEE, I was good.

@FRENDEN That's just what I love about it: it's not at all radical. Didn't have to eliminate anything.
Anyway--HIGH FIVE to you, that's such an accomplishment and I hope you're feeling and enjoying the wellness benefits. 🙃

@AesAthena Thank you! Best of luck — you’ve got this! 👍
