Weighed in today - 263.9, down from 337 - 73.1 pounds down.

Current goal is 250 by NYCC which is the 2nd week in October.


Fuckin' a, man.

I'm still 187-190, fluctuating. Not watching what I eat, but more when I eat.

That said, I left the house today to run some errands wearing a pair of size 32 shorts, and quickly realized they were gonna fall down if I didn't hitch them up every 15 seconds or so. Embarrassing, but more than weight, that's the kind of gain I find motivating and significant. Half a year ago I was puttin' some stress on size 36 pants, now I'm getting too small for 32s. That and moving down from XL to a comfy M in t-shirts - that's not the kind of gain you see on the scale, but elsewhere. Also, free stuff from cute girls working in stores. That you can't measure on a scale. ;)

Sucks for my wardrobe, though.

Very nice, Myke!

I said it before, if im not losing pounds but still losing inches, I'll take that any day of the week!

And Diddy, that is very impressive. 13 more lbs is very obtainable for October. Keep up the good work!

I'd keep lifting, just limit the snacks. Will power, man!


Speaking from experience, this is easier said than done...especially with young kids in the house. But I try, trust me! :lol:

I hear you on that, just without the kids. I also have stopped shopping when I am hungry. Doesn't help my waistline or my wallet.

Congrats Mang. You do some intense, consistent workouts so it's well deserved. I still wish I'd lose more. I swear my body is an anamoly.

I guess I should clarify. I expected more out of my cut. My lifts have maintained (and actually gone up 5%) but I've lost maybe 4 pounds in close to 3 months. It's straight up depressing when you eat clean and work your ass off at the gym for results like that.

My fiancé says I've had really good body recomposition but it's hard to see on yourself.

Those kids will be the death of me. There are always snacks in the house. My will power is pretty good but every now and then I hit a rough stretch and have a hard time staying focused. Ever since my daughter was born in May I've been just trying to hold it together.

Once the semester starts I'm kinda fucked, so I gotta get it in where I can.

You don't have much room to lose weight, though.

Oh, for fuckin' real. I don't see much of a change in myself, and I still have that fat kid mentality psychologically. Each time I notice someone checking me out, though, that helps chip away at that for sure.

Amen brother! You just summed up my life. At least I'm maintaining.

Day #3 of cardio only went pretty well. I'm already up to 8.5 on the treadmill and it was easy as hell to maintain - I thought I would have lost my endurance/speed since I quit running on the treadmill at least 6 months ago. I guess Insanity has been keeping me in fighting shape.

The reason I stopped lifting is because I am naturally jacked (note that jacked =/= ripped). I have really broad shoulders and a big chest without lifting any weights. I want to slim down to practically nothing and then work my way up from there. I'm thinking this would be a good look for me:



Actually, I want to know this was achieved:

Yeah, but that was also 13 years ago. A very strict diet, supplements, steroids, and a few hours in the gym everyday for 6 or so months. Don't forget: getting into that kind of shape is literally a full time job for them.

I know. I always say that if my full-time job was to look like that and I had unlimited resources to do so (food, nutritionist, trainer, etc.) then of course I could do it. Notwithstanding all of that, he's been in pretty good shape for the Batman movies at age 38.

Good job Mykevermin. I don't think I've been in this thread for over a month :/

I took about a month off the gym and have maintained 160lbs, but I want to drop 5lbs by 5 Nov and rebuild the strength I've lost. It's a vicious cycle. Diet wise I've been pretty good, I've stopped using the Lose It app, but I've been moderating my intake and making healthier choices. How's everyone else been doing.

It's ridiculous how many games I still buy, and yet, I barely ever play games these days.

I've turned the PS3 and 360 on *maybe* five times this month...and all were to watch Netflix with the girlfriend.
Yet, I picked up five or so games recently from the Best Buy clearance, have a couple games on preorder and bought that cheap Band Hero bundle from Newegg.

Work, eat, sleep, workout, girlfriend...pretty much what my life is these days. :lol:

I always say that if my full-time job was to look like that and I had unlimited resources to do so (food, nutritionist, trainer, etc.) then of course I could do it.



The only assistance I think I would need is someone to cook the food for me. I know my way around the kitchen pretty well from working in restaurants in the past, but it just seems like I can only ever motivate myself to either a) train hard or b) prepare the proper food but never both at the same time. I always end up focusing on training and eating lots of sandwiches.

Just yesterday I was watching an NFL pre-season game and thinking about how lucky those guys that can afford a private chef are. They get a variety of fresh food that's suited for their training regiment and they don't have to make it. Lucky bastards.

It's because all of that stuff takes time - a lot of it. Food shopping and preparation are a pain plus fitting in a 60-90 minute workout. It's very time consuming to do all of that. Sometimes I wish I just didn't care about my health or the way I looked like 90% of people. I could be eating something disgusting right now!

hahahaha. duuuude, you don't even fuckin' know. mine straight up disappeared after I got out of the shower this morning. I went into full on panic mode because I was convinced it slipped into the drain.

Found it 30 minutes later in the laundry hamper, but not before I started considering cutting into my ceiling in order to get access to the drain trap.

Totally getting it resized.

I threw my ring away by accident. Put some lotion on, ten minutes later washed my hands at work and realized my ring disappeared. I had to dig through a garbage to find it (thankfully I found a janitor with some gloves before the digging began).

I would have freaked out if I lost it in the shower. My wife got me in the habit of taking my ring off before I get in, so thank god I haven't had to deal with that yet.

Losing weight sucks sometimes.

Gained about 3 pounds back this week. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Trying to eat less/healthier and have been running/exercising more.

I have noticed I've been able to run a bit longer which is good, but still very frustrating.

More than the looks think about it health wise :bouncy: , and the bills you would have to pay from insurance/doctors on the long run . I was never over weight or anything, but once I got into college I started working out like never before (Workout 6x week). I think I'm in pretty good shape, and thankfully I love veggies and healthy food so its not hard to find healthy stuff to eat around my place at all times.

Just keep going and don't give up. That ring falling from your finger is already a good sign :applause: . And yeah my backlog keeps on growing from all the saved money + CAG. Now I find it hard to bite on a game that is not 20 or less :-#

Unfortunately no, don't own any weights or anything of that nature. When I still lived at my parents, they had a nice weight machine I used quite a bit. Unfortunately, there's no room in my own house to take and set it up.

LOL@ the ring discussion...I'm on my 3rd Wedding band. My original one doesn't fit anymore since the first time I dropped 80 lbs, so that's in my wife jewelry box. My second one is somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of New Jersey. That one slipped off playing with my kids when I dropped 70 lbs. This one I'm keeping...I got it sized before I dropped the last 65 lbs.

Reading that I feel like a human yo-yo. I don't think I can do it again, so this time I'm sticking to it.
