Think I’ve dropped 15 pounds in 2 months from intermittent fasting and giving up sugar, still working on getting back in decent shape. Any of yall have tips on giving up dipping? I quit smoking cold turkey but can’t seem to drop chewing
Message permalink: 705077813488648232
@Dcampbell It would be mind over matter more than anything man. But two thinks I've heard that can help are, those little jerky dip cans, that way you can pack your lip and feel like something is there. And chewing gum, chewing a lot of gum to distract yourself. I quit all that shit cold turkey after Korea, I'm sure you can too.

Absolutely, I hope it helps. Cause when shit goes down, you might not have access to a steady supply. Best to get off that shit now.

For quitting nicotine support groups have been shown to be the most effective measure find someone else that wants to quit and help each other. For weight loss support groups are usually counter productive unfortunately.

For me, it was porn. A few years ago I was a total coomer and it ruined my relationships, my self esteem, and my brain chemistry. If anyone is trying to break the habit, message me. I've been clean and sober since April 22, 2019 through a support group and 12 step program and I'm still just taking it one day at a time. Stay strong kings

Meditate on God. Lift weights. Cut out carbs. Sleep 6 hrs, shower regularly. The rest is easy.

Don't completely cut carbs. Try switching to more wholes wheat. Completely cutting carbs risks brain damage

Yeah, just cut the simple carbs. Get those complex carbs and cholesterol. Eat 4 meals a day.

I am about to be 19 months (in may) clean and sober from drugs(opiates,coke,meth) and alcohol. If I can do it you can too. These last 19 months have been incredible rewarding but very difficult as well. It was a constant battle at first but now I am just living my life to the fullest! It is possible and if you need help do not be afraid to ask! You have to SURRENDER to win this war. BUT IT IS POSSIBLE!

I wish there was a place I could swim that’s closer. Used to live in Oahu for a time and would bodyboard a lot. Flippers were essential so my calves were shredded. Keeping your legs and back stable was also great for the core. Oddly enough I never even considered wearing a Hawaiian shirt back then 😂
Message permalink: 705536450803793981
Anyone that’s severely overweight or has some really bad back trouble would benefit from water aerobics for a year as well. Not sure if that would apply to anyone here, but if you’re at the point you can’t jump rope, that’s probably your best bet to start things off. As well as dieting obviously.
Message permalink: 705536795722514612
The advantage of swimming and biking if you are overweight or over 40 is the muscles are target and the joints are spared.

for those of you who are struggling to lose weight, or want to start, try keto. it seems intimidating at first but it's pretty easy. i dropped 75 pounds last year, i attribute about 45 of those to keto. i gained some more(245 to 275) this year after i moved and have put myself back on it, and have gone from 275 to 261 in a couple of weeks. if you have the self control to stay on it(honestly if you can get past the first week it's really easy) it's a really good way to get weight off.
