I woke up the other day and found myself with a beer gut and 20-25 pounds overweight.

Since then, to date I have dropped eleven pounds in eleven days. It is amazing how the weight comes off if you do not eat fat. Despite eating VERY frequently--more than ever, I have kept my fat intake under 6 grams per day and have consumed zero fat a few times.

Other than that, I have gone for a 2 mile jog-walk four times. Today will be the 5th. I cannot jog it all yet, but today I hope to go the first mile without stopping to walk. This should help me beat my twenty minute record, lol, though I think I'll bump up to three miles today.

DW is jealous as she is a slave to her household (6 kids incl a baby) so I set up a treadmill in the family room and she and the kids use it.

I SOOO want a weight bench--the nice free wt version with lat pulley and leg equipment. Besides needing a little bulk, it is my understanding that muscle burns fat/calories, so that would be a win/win! But, alas, where to put such a contraption? My kids are into sports and would use it when they are older, but DW doesn't really want the thing in the LR ha!

Still, no time for a gym membership and I'm too old school for those 'machines' anyway.

What to do? I'm off for my jogwalk. This is the first time I have ever been overweight/out of shape and I'm rather enjoying tackling this.

Laudable in dozens of ways! Way to go!

However, cutting the fat grams to near zero is not necessarily a good idea. Several vitamins are only absorbed by hitchhiking on fat molecules. Therefore, a small amount of fat is needed in nearly every meal to ensure that all consumed micronutrients are actually getting into your body and able to do some good.

Make sure you consume some fat every day. Make it 'good fat' like olive oil or similar.

Why don't you watch your children so DW can go out for a walk by herself?
