Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

This is it. This is the year to do it. No more BS. You value your loved ones? What about yourself. Sick and tired of not being able to breathe when you tie your shoes? Do you get winded climbing a flight of stairs? Feel like crap? This is the time to do it. :LOL2:

I need to lose 42 pounds. I'm 99.9 percent confident a few of you could stand to lose a few pounds and inches too.

I was a size 48 pants 3 years ago. Now I'm a size 38. I want to get to a loose 36.

I went to the doctors this morning and she said I am doing a great job but I need to focus a little more. I weighed in at 242, My goal by June 1, 2011 is 200 pounds. That is 7 pounds per month. I AM GOING TO DO IT!

Who is ready for the challenge?

I am going to start Jan 1, 2011 with this being my number one priority. Are you in or are you going to continue eating Pepperoni pizzas with extra cheese, fries, and a 2 liter of soda? :LOL2:

I am going to weigh myself every Friday morning and update this post.

January 1, 2011 - 246.8 pounds House scales...They LIE! :LOL2:
January 7, 2011 - 239.0 even 7.8 pounds. Good but it will slow down now going forward.
January 14, 2011 - 232.4 6.6 pounds this week. I hit the Gym every day and killed myself shoveling this week :LOL2:
January 21, 2011 - 230.2 2.2 pounds this week. This is where I need to be weekly, but I was hoping for more! :D
January 28, 2011 - 227.5 2.7 pounds this week. The 4 hour shoveling yesterday helped this along for sure!
February 4, 2011 - 227.7 up 2 ounces! :shock: This bummed me out a little because I did not cheat. I did however feast on a baked ham all week and some homemade chili. So I am wondering if this is sodium/water retention. I must say though all my clothes are fitting even losser this week. Maybe all the snow shoveling is causing me to pack on some serious dense muscle mass. :LOL2:
February 11, 2011 - 229.7 No comments, except that I have been focused since Tuesday. Better results will happen next Friday I hope.
February 18, 2011 - 226 Even 3.7 pounds this week. I busted my rear this week working out. I started jogging too on the treadmill. I ran just over a mile at 6mph. It felt awesome, but I was sore for 2 days after.
February 25, 2011 - 226.7 up 7 ounces. How? I have no idea. Very aggravating though. I worked out even harder and ran 3 times this week on top of my daily elliptical 35 minutes. :evil:
March 4, 2011 - 225.7 Down 1 pound from last week. I finally broke that 225.X. Very happy. Now my next short term goal is 220. I am confident with warmer weather coming that these "small" Loses per week will be a little bigger by being outside with the kids, yard clean up, trips to the park.....fishing. Anything but sitting cooped up in a house all winter long.
March 11, 2011 - 227.5 Enough to make me want to quit. Up almost 2 pounds
March 18, 2001 - 223.0 Finally. I can guarantee my fluctuation was the Sodium from the baked ham I had last week. This week I ate almost Zero processed foods.
March 25, 2011 - 222.7 It will have to do I guess. :?
April 22. 2011 - 226.4 ouch! It happens.

Don't be scared, you have to do this, the time is now! :D

I have a PDF called Burn the fat feed the muscle. The theory behind it is to eat 300-350 calories every 3-3.5 hours. No more than 350 calories per sitting. This is how I went from a size 48 to a size 38. I was never full but never hungry. The best part....I could eat what I wanted, pizza, fries, burgers, chocolate. I only punished myself, but It would kill my cravings.

I never had that crash feeling either. Because my levels were stable instead of going up and down. This PDf was a lifesaver. If you want it I will email it to you.

I was right there with you until you mentioned Pepperoni pizza 8) Yuuuuummmmm!

All I can say is man I'm glad the holiday's are behind us. 3 weeks ago the doc told me I needed to start exercising to drop 10-15 pounds and hopefully get my blood pressure back into a safe range. Been briskly walking the neighborhood almost every night the past 3 weeks and logged 29.6 miles (per the gps on my phone). I haven't lost squat. Maybe my scale is broken. Started at 181 lbs and I'm still at 181 lbs. All the Christmas parties/dinners didn't help matters I'm sure, but I need for that weight to start dropping.

For those that have android phones, there's a pretty cool (free) app called CardioTrainer that will tell you how far you've walked/jogged, how many mph, how many calories you've burned and maps your route on google maps.
I drink coffee so I can do dumb things faster!

I need to get under 200lb or start buying bigger jeans. That would cut into my toy budget.

I'm IN!

Right now, with the really bad holiday binging.....I'm running 6'2 and 210. I don't need a lot, but I've been stuck here for a while. Already lost 12 lb and another 10 will get me where I want to be. Updates on Fridays it is!
1/1 - 215 Holiday pounds need to come off. This is up 5 from last week.
1/7 -212.5 Need to work harder.
1/14 - 215
1/21 - 214 Down 1 lb from last week. At least it's in the right direction. Next week will be better!
2/4 - 215

Back in on 3/9 at 217lb
3/11 -214 after very hard workouts and nearly starving to death.
3/18 -213 can't believe I only dropped 1 pound. At least it's in the right direction. Maybe it was all that corned beef???
3/25 -215 how on earth did this happen? I've busted my butt this week. Very discouraging.
4/01 -214 very frustrating. I've even cut my soda down from 3-4 liters a day to 12 ounces.
4/08 -211 Woohoo...finally something worked.
4/15 -210 Still moving in the right direction. Very little time to exercise this week though. Only hit the gym once.
4/23 -209 Wohoo....first time under 210 for as long as I can remember. I am a couple days late weighing in though....as I was on the water on Friday.
4/29 -209 Didn't move a bit.
5/28 -209 One month later and still here. Need to drop those 9 lbs that I don't want.
Peace,

I'm in. I started WeightWatchers almost four weeks ago. My goal was TWO bowling balls...32 lbs. I can visualize that very well. As of last week's weigh in..I had dropped 14.8 lbs to 255.2 lbs. About 17 lbs to go.

I find that the computerized E-WeightWatchers system works well for me. I post my meals a couple of times each day. Keeps me on track. The meetings are good, for me, for reinforcement and understanding of the process.

Lots to eat, just not the normal junk that I am used to. They do not supply any foods. Just a list of points.

I haven't missed too many scotches or wine at night, either.

I'm in... but only have a small amount to lose. My goal will be to maintain. I have lost close to 70lbs since the end of April and looking to lose maybe 10 more. It has been much easier to maintain this go round with consistent exercise.

Wow, the last time I was on the scale it read 230, it read 255.2 today and I'm 6'0" tall. I quit chewing tobacco about seven weeks ago after 25 years of use, a little weight loss will go good with that.
