3/12
236.1 (3.2)

Averaged about 2,000 daily calories per day the last 7 days with moderate/Heavy exercise. Heavy for me at least in my current state.

Walking 7.9 miles
Swimming 820 yards
Bike Riding(Virginia Creeper Trail) - 19.4 miles.

My Goal is 12,000 calories a week or 1,714 per day.

Went out and bought me a decent pair of doctor’s scales like you see in the office. I was tired with digital scales giving me different weights when I stepped on/off in the same spot.
3/19: 234.0 (2.1)

What are some opinions on Planet Fitness?

Not looking to get into hardcore body building, just want to lose some weight and get in better shape.

Planet Fitness seems like it would fit my style, but I've read a lot of bad reviews about their billing practices.

Just curious if any of you guys and gals have had dealings with them.
The new one in Bristol is nice and I had a membership for about 3 months during 2020 Covid summer when other gyms in the area were closed. Canceled membership because it was too far to drive when closer options became open and available. Still at $10/month it is great value.

After losing 40 lbs in 2017 (235 to 195), I have slowly crept back up. I stayed below 200 for about 8 months. I hovered around 205 until COVID hit. I have gained about 15 lbs in the last year. My breaking point was last week, when I weighed 219.1.

So, I’m back to counting calories. It was a good week and I’m down to 213. Goal is 195 (or at least below 200). If I’m diligent, I think I can do it in 4 months.

May 2017 - 235

Appreciate this group for accountability!
