<p>I guess I'll just start over from this point.  I've gotten fat since Hardrock.  Up 15 pounds in two months.  <span><img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"></span></p>

<p>I used to have the focus to take off 5 pounds a week - Yes I was always hungry, miserable and deadlegged - But it was over much quicker.  I do not think I want to accept that anymore - I think I will be in the healthy 2-3 pounds per week.  Or at least I hope so - Just means what would take 2 months to do will take 4.  Can I really be that good for 4 months?</p>

I had the focus at one point. I was routinely losing 4 pounds a week. Yeah, there was ocassional 1 or 2, and maybe once there was a 5 or 6. I wasn't a runner then (well, I'm not exactly one now either, since I'm so fat it's uncomfortable for me), so deadlegs wasn't an issue. I never really felt hungry. Don't know how I can get the "mojo" back and get in the weight loss zone. One difference, though, it was 8 years ago. Other than being fat, I don't really feel that much different, I don't think. Besides the age, the other major difference is more responsibility at work, and that might be making things more difficult.<br><br>
Anyway -<br><br>
Last week: 208<br>
This week: 207<br><br>
Starting Weight: 209<br>
Loss for week: 1 lb<br>
Total loss: 2 lb

<p>I find that, as long as I'm running 25 miles or so per week, I can maintain my weight. But I don't lose unless I really focus, and I have a hard time focusing for more than about two months. This is regardless of whether I'm losing 1lb per week of 10. My personal history has shown that ~5 lbs per week is the right balance of good results without crashing too hard.. and in the two months that I can maintain that kind of intensity I'd lose about 50lbs and be good to go for my key race which is ATY. I've done this pattern several times in my life, and ~50 lbs is about how much I lost each time. It's how I went from 400lbs to 350 in 1997, 350 to 300 in 1999, 330 to 280 in 2006, and 325 to 275 earlier this year.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The only question then is avoiding regaining.. which, like I said, as long as I maintain 25MPW I'm ok. Streaking (running every day) has helped me with that particular obstacle. 253 days and counting!</p>

<p>Its great you still "Have it" I used to - Hell once I lost 87 pounds in 90 days.  I think the difference is with the 2 young kinds (10/6), I just can not (Do not want to) isolate myself for enough time a day to get there. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I would exercise the way I always do - Average 2+ hours a day, but eat 2,000-2,500 calories per day.  I was in a constant "Bonk" with glocogen depleted and constantly burning straight fat and some muscle as fuel.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Now I am "Good" if I keep it around 3,600 calories per day.  I am rarely dead legged or in "Bonk" mode - But it takes 2-3x as long.<br><br>

<p>Hey Richard - Nice to see you</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I think my friend Jeff is running the 50 @ Superior this weekend - I am not sure if he is running with  a friend or all out racing it.  If he is all out racing he should be very competetive.</p>
