Once a week, I go on a lunch date with Ms. Panda. Today she told me with a laugh, "Panda, ever since we got married in 2005, you would write these weight goals year after year and your weight would never change. You obviously know that I didn't marry you for your looks. lol..... but 10 years later you finally did it! I am so proud of you." 

A comment like that from your wife makes a man happy. :)

When applied to the other five categories of sport explored, it was found that swimming was linked to a 28% reduced risk of heart disease, while the figure was 47% for tennis and 27% for aerobic exercise such as keep fit or dance.

When the team looked just at the risk of death from cardiovascular heart disease, they found that swimming reduced the risk by 41%, tennis by 56% and aerobics by 36%.

- British Journal of Sports Medicine

Research has shown that the #1 cause of death in America is heart disease. Try to make Tennis, Swimming, and Aerobics as part of active lifestyle to live a healthier life. Please take care of your greatest asset - Your Physical Health.

Throughout most of my 20s and 30s, I was over weight by 30-40 pounds. I felt hopeless and times and thought that I was destined for this weight for the rest of my life. By the time we are 35 years old, 95% of our memories are our repetitions of our past (fixed mindset) and 5% is your subconscious mind that you can change with determination (growth mind set). This is the reason why it is so difficult for the middle age adults to break their habits of 20 years. You can change if your 5% of the subconscious mind can win over the 95% of your body. Getting down to your ideal weight is no different. It is the little habits you do today that make the big differences in your future. Getting down to your ideal weight is a compound effect. I am grateful that I have been able to maintain my ideal weight for about 2 years now. If any of you are struggling with a similar situation, let me know what I can do to help.

For the longest time, I thought that the key of living a long healthy life is eating the right diet, working out, swimming, playing tennis. Especially we as men sometimes feel like we don't need nobody since we are men. Men are not suppose to share our struggles and challenges we face in life with other men. We are suppose to look and act like we have it all together, especially living in Irvine.

What if I told you that the length of your life may depend on the meaningful relationships you have in your life? Perhaps we all need to proactive in building authentic meaningful relationships. Quality is more important than quality when it comes to deep meaningful friendships? Do you have such a friend?

HARVARD STUDY, almost 80 years old, has proved that embracing community helps us.

When scientists began tracking the health of 268 Harvard sophomores in 1938 during the Great Depression, they hoped the longitudinal study would reveal clues to leading healthy and happy lives.
They got more than they wanted.

After following the surviving Crimson men for nearly 80 years as part of the Harvard Study of Adult Development, one of the world’s longest studies of adult life, researchers have collected a cornucopia of data on their physical and mental health.

Of the original Harvard cohort recruited as part of the Grant Study, only 19 are still alive, all in their mid-90s. Among the original recruits were eventual President John F. Kennedy and longtime Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee. (Women weren’t in the original study because the College was still all male.)

In addition, scientists eventually expanded their research to include the men’s offspring, who now number 1,300 and are in their 50s and 60s, to find out how early-life experiences affect health and aging over time. Some participants went on to become successful businessmen, doctors, lawyers, and others ended up as schizophrenics or alcoholics, but not on inevitable tracks.

During the intervening decades, the control groups have expanded. In the 1970s, 456 Boston inner-city residents were enlisted as part of the Glueck Study, and 40 of them are still alive. More than a decade ago, researchers began including wives in the Grant and Glueck studies.

Over the years, researchers have studied the participants’ health trajectories and their broader lives, including their triumphs and failures in careers and marriage, and the finding have produced startling lessons, and not only for the researchers.

“The surprising finding is that our relationships and how happy we are in our relationships has a powerful influence on our health,” said Robert Waldinger, director of the study, a psychiatrist at Massachusetts General Hospital and a professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. “Taking care of your body is important, but tending to your relationships is a form of self-care too. That, I think, is the revelation.”

Hello Panda,

I didn't have a chance to thank you before for this thread.  Thank you!!! At one point you had a spreadsheet showing your weight loss and that was so similar to my previous weight loss.  I have a few decades on you so it's harder for me but same height, etc.  That was when I was swimming four or five nights a week.  Then, everything went south and I gained everything back and more due to bad eating habits.  But every once in a while I would go back to this thread and tell myself I would create a weight loss spreadsheet and make a reasonable target like losing a half pound or one pound per week.  It still wasn't working out but I kept at it.  Your positive messages kept me going.  Thank you again!

I also have to thank USCTrojanCPA for his intermittent fasting thread.  I kept seeing YouTube videos on intermittent fasting but I wasn't sure if it would work for me.  I started intermittent fasting on 2/1/2018, the 16 - 8 easy one as I know I won't be able to do anything more extreme than that long term.  My biggest problem was snacking all day long.  I just could not stop snacking.  I didn't think it was possible but from day one, I just completely stopped snacking outside my 8 hour eating window.  I didn't think it would be as simple as that.  :-)  Jumping to the results, from my max weight earlier this year, I have lost about 30 pounds.  I know some may think only 30 pounds in 9 or 10 months but I am very happy with that for now.

I'm getting older so I have some other health issues to take care of but at least I feel like my weight is where it needs to be.

Thank you again, Panda and USCTrojan.

Irvinehusky,
I am very proud of you and thanks for sharing. It is the little things we do everyday that make the big differences down the road especially in our health. I see that you are swimmer. I also swim 20 laps every morning. You have find activities that you enjoy to do. For me, the three activities I really enjoy are aerobics (Step / Kickbox Jam), Tennis, and Swimming. I also run about 4 miles on the trend mill every morning while listening to a good audio book. I don't like lifting weights, so for strength training I like rock climb once a week. This keeps me accountable in my weight as it become more and more difficult for me to rock climb, the heavier I get.

Whether it is playing soccer or basketball, you have the find the activities that works for you and an activity that you enjoy.... and Most importantly be intentional in make new meaningful friendships and relationships. There was a recent Harvard study that really opened my eyes about health. Studies showed that having deep meaningful relationships whether it be your wife, friends, and family is the key for long life and overall happiness. I always thought that the top three criteria were 1)Genetics 2) Diet 3) Exercise and this study showed otherwise studying men from the 1930s.

Anyway Congrats and thanks for sharing the good news.

You need to change your name to IrvineNotSoHusky. :)

I struggle with weight... and the older I get... the harder the struggle. I try to stay active but then I get injured, gain more weight and then it makes staying active harder. I'm actually losing a little weight now more from diet change... eating smaller meals in the evening and no late night snacking... but I need to lose more to have a meaningful impact on my health (and knees).

I need to do more weekday activities but it's tough with work, family, etc. I try to get out even if it's just for a walk.. but those are less often than I'd like.

I get tempted by those testosterone booster ads (Frank Thomas!) but I feel that I need to do this with diet and exercise, not Nugenix.

Highly recommend consulting a nutritionist who can recommend a personalized plan based on your individual body and hormone type (after a blood panel )

Weight loss is tricky but there are ways to hack it if you know the initial conditions you are working with . I used to sneer at these Silicon Valley types and their “body hacking “ nonsense until I tried something myself and lost almost 20 lbs .

IHO,
Again, I appreciate you being real and honest. What I observed in my life is that everything is a compound effect. Rarely is your life moving in a straight line,  things are either improving your life or declining whether it is your marriage, parenting, weight, career aspirations, your finances, your relationships. What I also realize is that is the little changes that we do everyday, is what makes massive differences in our future.

For example, if you are struggling with your weight, don't try to see massive results in just a week or a month. Change little things.. like having oatmeal vs white rice. Going to the Korean BBQ once a quarter vs making it an every Friday night dining. Find activities that you enjoy. Perhaps you love playing basketball... I couldn't play basketball if my life depended on it. I don't even know how to dribble a basketball. The idea of trying to make a ball go into a small hole stresses me out. Perhaps that is why I don't like playing golf either. Tennis is fun for me as I find it to be a creative sport as it doesn't involve throwing a tennis ball into a small hole. You have to find the health activities that you enjoy.

Although, I love Martin.. I don't believe in starving yourself to lose weight. I still love to eat and I probably still eat as much as I did when was 194 lbs... but what has changed is what I eat and it has become a habit.. You have to make small changes to your habits daily.
