Nice, Larry!

I've been doing a 16/8 intermittent fast pretty regularly since January.  I have no problems making it from 8p-noon and often will go another hour.  I haven't added any meaningful exercise and I'm down 24 pounds.   

I've also been doing 16/8 IF 9-5 but may change my hours more in line with what you have.
Iíve been accidentally doing this as well. I typically donít eat breakfast and supper is usually early for us so itís more like 6-12. Iím down about 30 pounds since winter but I attribute that to working on my jeep so much

My weight loss has stalled out and I have been stuck at the 275-277. Despite that I am almost another belt notch down. Guess it's time to take my measurements again so the scale doesn't crush my drive to keep on keeping on.

So as on June 5th i weighed 291, im now 253.   this past week started an intermint fasting.   72hr.  every few weeks, good way to clean ur system out, and jump start your body.  its worked for several other guys in my office doing the challenge with me.   im currently in 4th place out of 12 ppl .   My goal is to get to 230ish before i leave for my vacation in Rome. which starts the end of Oct. 

I think im doing pretty good.  i work out 4 days a week high intensity for 45/1hr. (our company has fast twitch classes here at our office).  my blood pressure is super good and all my other indicators which where shit in June are back to .. normal .  i also dont get tired and have to call it a day after i mow the lawn, ..  so hopefully i can keep this up if nothing else i do sleep better.

I am officially in the 268-269 weight range and down over an inch in all the areas that count. Been dropping almost one belt notch a month since May!

I got diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes 3 months ago and committed to making a major overhaul in my life.

I started at 269 and am now down to 245...24 lbs. I stopped eating bread, rice, tortilla's, chips, crackers. I have a protein smoothie in the morning and maybe some almonds ( 100 calories worth) a salad and a soup or veggie burger at lunch and a low carb meal at dinner. It feels a lot like starving. I'm back into size 36 pants from 40's, though and that's the important thing.

I still occasionally eat meat like chicken or fish but most days I'm vegetarian.

I started running on the treadmill and elliptical 3-4 days a week and joined Planet Fitness.

Reading ya'll successes really helped to motivate me to give it my all. The Diabetes and realization that I needed to stop fawkin around. Did a lot as well.

My goal is 220 and to start running 5k's, and to get off the Diabetes med's.

A friend at work got diagnosed with type 2. He cut out ALL sugar. He dropped about 30 pounds, got to stop taking his high blood pressure medicine, High cholesterol medicine, AND reversed his diabetes diagnoses.
It's a lifestyle change.

Good luck man!
