When I started your calculator on 2 March 2001, I weighed 282 pounds with a 50+ inch waist. This morning’s weigh-in (I only weigh on Mondays), my weight was 216 pounds with a 42-inch waist. I have changed nothing from my eating patterns of three meals a day with mid-afternoon and evening snacks. I try to keep the calorie max at 1400. Occasionally it may creep up to 1700 calories. My target weight is 190 pounds, which I hope to attain sometime early in 2002. Then comes the hard part. I must strictly maintain my target weight by still having weekly weigh-ins. Well, I guess that’s about all for now. I hope all is just fine at your end.
