OK--generally I've achieved what I set out to do--I'm down over 23 pounds in about 6 weeks. I'm going to stop weighing my food/counting calories/measuring the caloric output of my workouts, etc. Henceforth, I'm going to be very focused on the input and output but just frequently measure my weight to ensure i stay lean. Below is a graph that shows my predicted weight (based on all of my calculations) vs. my actual--the blue line below--very, very successful program. Now I'm focused on keeping my weight between 165-175 and feeding the furnace!
