Trying to lose weight...

I do a lot of physical activity, but I eat horribly. To try to improve my diet I am reducing my meat in take to one meal a day with meat.

That is down from just about every meal being meaty.

I've been upping my fruit intake a lot (it was almost non-existent before) and a slight increase increase in salads, which I did eat fairly regularly.

One thing I eat way too much of, that I do need to reduce in my diet (which will be harder for me than reducing meat) is ice cream. I am an ice cream fiend.

My sister is mostly vegetarian. She occasionally has white meat, but that's about it. She has pledged to cook for me when she moves in, which will make the meat reduction easy to maintain.

But, again, the ice cream will be hard to resist. I just about made a blueberry pie last night and get a tub of ice cream for Dr. Who night tonight. Luckily I was able to show some self control.

I don't have a scale, but I'm guessing I weigh in at 265. I exercise a lot (walk several miles a day, and some informal weight lifting every couple of days), and I have plenty of muscle under the fat, so I'm guessing a good target weight will be about 220lbs fr my 6'4" frame, but I'll play it by ear.
