Pressing Reset

I'm Back! at 226.8 After writing a book, I'm back and up in my weight. I could cry and beat myself up, but I just looked at the calendar and said: "October 1st the day I turn this thing around." I reset some data in my apps, starting getting up a little earlier, walking a little more, paying attention to my water intake. I've even cleaned off my exercise bike as its fall in Ohio, and only a matter of time until the snowfalls. Don't let yourself get complacent with your health. What used to...

My Blood Pressure Motivates Me

Weight Check-In 224.4 When I last recorded I was 224.4 and as of today, I'm at 224.3. Am I happy that I went down a tenth of a pound? Not really. If there was a silver lining, in my weight update its that I was traveling for a week where I was stuck eating hotel food. I did take one step in planning and took some Advocare Meal Replacements with me and drank those for breakfast and skipped my lunch (attempting to do a slight version of Intermittent Fasting). With the news I received in this...


Why I Dumped My Fitbit for an Apple Watch

Today on the show I talk about Fitbit lost my account. As in a decade of information went up in smoke (thankfully most of the weight tracking is in my fitness pal. Tomorrow will be one week without so I ended up going and getting an Apple Watch Series 4 after hearing some friends say how cool they are. Apple Watch Features Really customizable screen Apple health seems to integrate with everything It does NOT grade how you sleep but there are apps that integrate with Apple health that...

To Be Something You Have to DO Something

I'm looking into the 131 Method by Challenge Johnson. A member of the Logical Losers pointing it out and said it looked interesting. I took a peak on my kindle, and then purchases the Audio Book on Audible. You can get any book on audible for free by going to www.logicalloss.com/freebook This lead to me taking the 131 Method Course I liked that she points out her own struggles as she ages.

If Your Life Was a Movie...

Fun in the Utah Sun I have a pretty bad fear of heights, and I have sun poisoning. However with a little planning, and some help from a friend I was able to go hiking in Utah. It was a lot of fun, and the scenery was beautiful. I had some great conversation with my guide Elikgiute from the Travel Gluten Free Podcast. I asked the question, "If someone was making a movie of your life, what would this time in your life be called? for me I had a childhood, Jr High was awful. Then I had the...


Taking Back Some Time

A quick bonus episode to invite you to come on the show, and to let you know (for the Summer) I'm going to an "every other week" schedule as I spend about four hours putting together an episode, and it doesn't make much sense to do a weight loss show where I'm not losing weight. So temporarily I'll be publishing every other week and taking some of those four hours and exercising.


Humiliation and Shame

We Don't Need No Uber! I took my car in for a quick brake job and instead of taking and Uber or Calling a Friend I walked back home, and later back to get my car. This was repeated twice resulting in me walking almost 19 thousand steps in one day. Why? Cause it was going to take 20 minutes for Uber to come get me (As I wasn't near a city). Better Me App Uses Humiliation The Better Me App is available on Apple and Android BetterMe is an app for people who will try anything to better...


Let's Go Streaking

In examining myself, it doesn't take much to notice that my problem is staying consistent. I lose weight, and I find weight. So I went digging to find out how to keep goals in front of you that My Goal This Month is 1 LB a Week I started April at 223 lbs, and I want to be 219 at the end. As I write this on 4/18 I am .57 lbs behind my target weight. Like many goals, I came out of the gate and was ahead of schedule but then got lazy and now I'm struggling. The good news is by being able to...


Lack of Direction

I got a review in Apple Podcasts from Bridghside92 It’s depressing how much he bounces back and forth with his weight and seems to constantly make excuses as to why he keeps gaining weight despite the podcast before he talks about making better decisions or something similar. The guy is very relatable and I enjoy listening but it seems like he doesn’t really want to lose weight. Also, it seems like he is just advertising atomic habits the last several episodes and not really giving any...


The Power of Groupthink

In listening to the book Atomic Habits the chapter I listened to explained that in one experiment they would send in a person into a group. The group had chosen to say how delicious something was when the food was purposely created to be awful. At first, if there was just one person, the person would be honest and say they didn't like it. As more people entered the group that would say how delicious something was, the person would change their mind to go along with the group. This is...


Be Proud of the Present by Talking to the Future

Talk to Future You I was listening to a friend's podcasts called "You Wanna Do What?!" (www.youwannadowhat.com ) and she had a great segment I wanted to pass along (as well as add some thoughts I had). There is some food in front of you. You want to eat it. You know it's not a good choice. However, you really would love to eat it. Monica brought up a great point. Talk to your future self. In the past, I've said I never felt bad getting off of a treadmill. I have felt bad waking up the...


Stacking Habits: Piggybacking Your Way to Success

Right now as I look at my progress, I want to quit eating all food, go on a liquid diet, run a marathon, and dump a ton of weight by 6:30. We want the weight off. We want it off yesterday. Meanwhile back, in reality, a better strategy is to set up some habits to do the right things on a consistent basis. Full show notes at www.logicalloss.com/379


He Lost 70 lbs and Has Kept if Off For Four Years

I got an email. In it stated: 4 years ago, I weighed over 275 lbs. I was depressed and addicted to video games. I played more than 12 hours of games per day. Fortunately, I lost over 70 lbs and I've kept the weight off for 4 years. More importantly, I transformed not only my physical health but my emotional and mental health too. I'm at that stage where I wanna share my experience with others who wanna make the same “health gains” that I did. So I invited Danyon Toniga on to the show to...


The Poison of Perfection

January started great for me, but mid-monthI started to go back to my old habits. We've talked about doing little things. I know what I want in my routine: Advocare Yet, for some reason, I'm not doing all of these and the one that is mind boggling is taking a supplement. Really? how hard is swallowing a pill? The MNS 3 has a few pills you need to take at certain times, and yet at the end of the day, there is always one package I forgot to take with my lunch. I decided I would write down...


The Psychology of Weight Loss With Karina Melvin

I don't normally have interviews but I saw all the credentials of Karina, and how she had multiple degrees in psychology and addition I thought she must have insights that can help us all. Today you will hear her say things that may make you go, “Wait, what?” but on the other hand if you've been doing the same things for year and all you have to show is a yo-yo weight loss plan, Karina explains how some of the very things I do (restricting my food choices, focusing on calories, and other...


I'm So Glad I Didn't Quit

Special thanks to Nick Florido for the $30 Today I share how I was doing everything I was supposed to do I: Drink 60-80 oz of water Get seven hours of sleep a night Eat less than 2000 calories Get 60 minutes of exercise or 10,000 steps and yet the scale didn't move. In fact, in some days the scale went up. I was furious, and frustrate and I wanted to quit, but I didn't. I'm glad I didn't Today I woke up and I hit my goal. I focused on doing all the right things that lead to weight...


Seeing is Believing

Go with me for a moment. Most of your friends come from your job. You are all close in age, you spend 40 hours together and often go to lunch together. In some cases, you even hang out after hours. Then you hire a new person. They are also similar to your age. Then you notice some characteristics: Would you want to hang out with this person? How frustrating would this person be? How To Turn the Tides on Your Negative Inner Talk No matter what the inner critic has told you, you do have...


Some Things Never Change

For me, the holidays are over (due to my brother going out of town for the holidays. This means yesterday I had the ham, the green beans, and yes, there were cookies. With no surprise, when I stepped on the scale it went the wrong way. So I did a deep dive into my data in myfitnesspal.com (I've used Loseit! in the past and many others, they all do the same thing, I liked myfitnesspal, but use whatever works for you). In looking at the data I could CLEARLY see that when: I lose...
