Mostly weight loss, some poker

weight loss:
i've been dieting and lifting since december and up until about 2 weeks ago i lost ~25 lbs from a starting weight of 200 lbs. then i took a couple cheat days which turned into the last 2 weeks of me eating whatever and not exercising at all.

now i'm back to 184 lbs. i gained 9 lbs in 2 weeks.

i refuse to let all the hard work and hours go to waste. i am creating this blog to hopefully get some followers to help hold myself accountable.

i'm getting married in january, and have a goal weight of 159lbs.

macros: 1500 calories, 150 protein, 55 fat.

poker:
back story, i am probably a break even to slight winner at 100nl on stars. playing on softer sites matters a lot. i've made 6 figures the last couple months including a 50k february.

i want to make 100k by september. i am staked. i am ~13k in makeup. average buy in for me is 3/6.

follow or not, thanks for the time. i know very few of you irl. but i've been apart of this forum for more than a decade so hopefully this will work and i'll keep updating even through the downswings in poker, and the upswings in weight.

If this is going to be mostly weight loss, you might ask to have it moved to the Health and Fitness forum, where there are a number of similar logs and you'll likely get more responses.

Re: Mostly weight loss, some poker

thanks and yes this is mostly about weight loss as that is where i would want some advice, i will ask to have it moved.

ate out everyday since last update and ordered food that taste good so i gained a lot of weight.

i will also start taking creatine today. so my weight might increase for now, but hopefully it works out since i still have awhile to reach my modest goal.

poker was meh. low volume and i lost about 3k still playing the 1k+. i'm considering dropping down to grind out of makeup at least.

Re: Mostly weight loss, some poker

i started with the creatine been taking it last 2 days. i am "loading". i'm not sure if it's even necessary to load. getting 25-30mg/day for 5 days then i'll drop to 5 mg/day.

hit the gym 2 days in a row, and hit my macros 2 days in a row as well. i can hit my protein goals(150) and stay under my fat limit (55) and (25) fiber as well. i'm pretty sleepy throughout the day. i don't track carbs but i'm usually at around 75-100. is there a reason for me to increase this? i mean i play poker for a living, taking a nap mid/day doesn't really get in the way of work.

also out of makeup. i also want to note that me making 100k is only gonna net me 50-60k since i'm staked.

Re: Mostly weight loss, some poker

i've been eating these quest cereal protein waffle bars. like 3-4 of them a day. they taste so good. to the point where it taste like junk food. as long as they fit my macros, will they be healthy? i don't want to destroy my intestines or something eating so many of these everyday.

110 calories, 5 fat, 170 sodium, 50 potassium, 17 carbs, 6 fiber, 8 sugar, 12 protein

i really only pay attention to the 110 calories, 5 fat, 6 fiber, and 12 protein. so it looks great! but what about the rest? is it fine to get that much sugar in a day? i'm eating 3 or 4 everyday.

had an 11k day in poker. 1500 min buy in table, get QQ double up vs AK. then call it off with AA vs JK on 46736 for full double. then i flop a set after cold calling a 3bet with 1010 vs AK flop K106. tilted because i didn't stack the guy.

At this pace you should be at 100k by the end of the week

Gl with your goals

I don't think the bars are much of a problem btw.

Re: Mostly weight loss, some poker

thanks for the advice on the bars- i just bought another box of the bars.

today is my last day (5th) of "loading" creatine. i've actually lost weight while taking, so far. is that supposed to happen?
