Hi Everyone,

I found EM2WL a couple of weeks ago and it looked like what I needed to do so I jumped right in.

Last year I did low carb (under 40g of carb a day) along with my martial arts workouts and lost 25-30 lbs. I couldn't keep that up and since December it has been me trying to diet followed by falling off the wagon and binge eating on the weekends. All in all I was probably eating about 2000 calories a day average and gaining no weight, since early December.

I still need to lose about 30 lbs of fat, I was just tired of dieting, and this way of eating made so much sense to me I was excited to get going.

My starting stats:
Height: 5'8"
Starting weight: 197.9
Age: 49 (50 next month!)

Waist: 40
Belly Button: 43
Hips: 48
Bust: 44
Under Arms: 40
Upper Thigh: 25
Upper Arm: 15

BMR 1670
TDEE (estimated): 2400

I do Martial Arts (Tang Soo Do) and body weight exercises (just downloaded YAYOG app) 4-5 nights a week. Sedentary office job, more active on the weekends when I do all my cooking/laundry/housework since weeknights I am usually at Karate class.

Goal number 1 - Find my "true" TDEE

Week 1 1950-200 cals per day
Week 2 2100-2200 cals per day

End of week 2:
Weight 197.8 - so no gain or loss. probably not at TDEE yet.

This is the start of week 3, I am moving my calories per day up to 2300-2400. Not necessarily the same everyday - but close with a weekly average of about 2400. Working on hitting my protein and calorie goals - I don't need to worry too much about fat and carbs (though I REALLY have to watch sugar intake!) - they seem to take care of themselves.

Results so far:
MUCH easier workouts and more energy after workouts. "Stuffed" feeling is finally subsiding after 2 weeks of eating this much.

So glad to have found this website!!
