I got below 180 lbs with the flu and 100.8 temp. After 8 day's of laying around, I am ready to get back to normal, especially my guts. I hope to start light workouts again. I still have a bad cough, I hear that the cough lasts for about 2 weeks. Whatever they are calling this flu, it is painful in addition to the sickness. We've already had 4 deaths in our area and the flu season is just starting, 2 middle aged adults and 2 kids. Dallas county treated 16,000 kids in December at their ER and some pediatrians are turning patients away. It's as bad as anything that I have had except the shingles.
If you die during the contest your last weigh in is the one we go with


And you forfeit the grand prize to me!

I came down with some 72 hr. bug on Sat and fell off my diet a bit but I rebounded pretty good and almost got back on schedule. Maybe I need to get a wife so I'll have somebody to blame. #-o
Jim, are you doing any sort of workout/exercise or just watching the diet?

No exercise besides walking about an hour everyday at work lunch time.

I slipped on the Ice Dec 17 on my way to work(Graveyard shift 2nd job), and broke my back...concussion, Fractured T-11....so I can not really move.

My status:
227.4 Starting weight
224.2 Jan 4 weigh-in
225.0 Jan 11 weigh-in :oops:
225.6 Jan 18 weigh-in :evil:

I don't get it - I've been good this week. So good that I stopped and ate McDonalds yesterday. I played 6.5 hours of volleyball - 4 of those competitive - Competitive vball is just under running for calories burned per hour. So it was like I ran 24 and walked 6 miles this week and still gained weight. :evil: :evil: :evil:

Another reason why I hate winter. 10 years ago, I slipped and fell while shoveling snow and broke my ankle. I wish you a quick recovery.

Also, best of luck to all of you trying to loose weight, and hope your healthier lifestyle doesn't end with the contest. I lost 140 lbs in about 2 years. I'm back down to my pre-marraige weight and feeling great.

Wow, I start to ache all over just reading about that. Hope you're on the road to recovery and get fully healed soon.

Starting weight 190
January 20 186.4

Not much of a loss but after the flu, I decided to throw it all out the window with a Chicken Fried Steak, gravy, mash potatoes, butter beans, green beans, a roll, sweet tea and blueberry cobbler, the daily special. I was down to 184.8 last night. I'll get serious tomarrow. On a positive note, I'm still down over 13 pounds since Thanksgiving.

I am waiting to get my boat back from the church where it is part of the decorations this month. I got my riveter from Harbor Frieght and ordered some close ended blind rivets today. I have already picked up some cutoff wheels for my rotor tool. I need to start looking for some aluminum and then maybe I can start some minor modifications in February.
