Theo Moore Questions... Morphology? Longevity? Incept dates?

My weight loss has continued, and I feel great. I have now lost 63 pounds, but this number is difficult to use as a gauge as I am in the gym 5-6 days a week now.

I will be measuring my body fat in a couple of weeks, which should give me a better indication of my progress. I can tell you, however, that I bought new jeans 2 weeks ago and they are now one size too big and slide off without being unbuttoned. What a far cry from last year! I posted some pics of myself from last November on my Facebook page even though it was terribly embarrassing to see them.

I sort of find it ironic, though, that my biggest problem with diet now is that I am not eating enough. Seriously. I eat 5-6 times a day, but stick to fruits and veggies 95% of the time with a little chicken thrown in. As a result, I am getting approx. 1000-1200 calories a day. Well, just one 45 minute session on the elliptical machine burns approx. 650. That doesn't even count any from the muscle building portion of the workout. So, clearly, I am not getting enough. I've even added whey protein to my daily intake (about 80 grams) because I was getting less then 10 grams a day (not even enough for a normal person, much less someone who works out as much as I do). The added calories from the whey brings me up to about 1500 on a good day. The funny part is that I am full to the gills most all of the time (the whey is very filling) and am rarely hungry. Sheri has been sneaking extra food into my lunchbox in an effort to entice me to eat more, but I just don't. One of the trainers at my gym keeps fussing at me about it, too, but it's hard to eat when you aren't hungry and your tummy feels full. Guess I'll have to try and find a balance.

Anyway, I feel better than I've felt in ages. I just hope and pray my discipline holds. 'Course, it has for 6 months now, so I suspect it will.

I am trying to lose 30. It is hard when sitting 9+ hours a day but I am sick of not being able to keep up with my kids.
