So I got tired of being fatter, poor sleep, a bit lethargic, etc. and got back in the gym last Friday.

Another 3 days in this week and already starting to feel better. Shooting for 5 total by Friday.

Who's with me?

I've been lifting since October 1st and plan to continue through the Winter. Also doing time restricted eating - all calorie intake within a 10 hour window each day. It helps me keep the fat off.

Diet and exercise are equally important, so my goal is to stay consistent with both.

I'm in.  I never really stopped, I just felt like I was spamming the board all the time with my exercise/fitness stuff and that enthusiasm was waning.  Happy to start posting again.

A Keto diet with no exercise out-performs the standard American diet with exercise in reducing body weight, BMI, body fat and HgA1c in patients with Metabolic Syndrome.

My wife and I have started lifting over the past month. She was looking for a fairly basic program and we settled on this: https://www.amazon.com/Barbell-Prescription-Strength-Training-After/dp/0982522770

Basically it advocates some basic lifts like squats, deadlifts, and bench presses with somewhat heavy weights and somewhat low reps.  After a couple months of that you start working in other lifts. It isn't really a weight loss program of any sort but more a functional strength building program. After a couple months I can definitely feel the difference.

The next steps for us are to mix in some more cardio and stop eating crap.

I'd love to join in too! I'd like to be more consistent.

Ergophobe and I tried the time restricted eating thing too, and found it HARD on any days where a commute or traveling was involved, though it was a good way to stop the late night snacking. Tell me more about how you organize around it, Travoli. Maybe I should give it another try.

I just skip breakfast. Usually start eating between 12-2pm and stop at 10pm. Adjust your start-stop window however you want. If you are a morning caffeine person, drink your coffee black or take caffeine pills instead. Drink water until your start time.

The less sugar/carbs/sweet-tasting food you eat, the less you'll feel hungry (after an adjustment period). I especially avoid carbs at night.

3 times a week in the gym and at least 2 long walks. Still shooting for 10,000 steps a day as well.

>Still shooting for 10,000 steps a day

Louise bought a FitBit Flex 2 back in July. She had a slow, demoralizing start even though she was following the exercise plan and diet strictly.  After about 90 days, it finally kicked in and is currently working great for her. With her now-documented low metabolism (even her doctor is scratching his head), she has had to maintain a 13k steps/day regimen along with <1k calories/day. She's lost 14# since October 15.

I strongly recomment the cheap-ish FitBit Flex 2. The app has a pretty good UI. Louise is using it for calorie-tracking, too.  While pedometer accuracy was pretty good on her wrist or waist, it tested best by far when worn on the pants cuff.  They make a cheap neoprene case which she also safety-pins to keep it from being stolen by a metal desk leg or shopping cart.
