#12113985 CAG Lose It weight loss challenge.

Posted by Rig on Today, 02:17 PM

I'm at my worst. I shot up to 290lbs.


I was down to 195 lbs. 6 years ago and then the gluttony demons came back.


I am doing group workouts at my gym as it motivates me to dig deeper. Is it a good or bad thing to take out my frustrations (ie. getting flaked on, shot down by potential dates, getting snubs for special occasions, etc. and it's all because [which I believe that's why] I'm fat) and use it to work out harder and stronger?


I recently invested in a Trek Fitness/Hybrid Bike. Right now, I am driving half way and biking the other half to work on some days. I hate the saddle though as it hurts my ass. You think getting a wider, cruiser like saddle will allow me to pedal faster?


My diet sucks though. What can you recommended for a "meat and potatoes/rice" guy to get the healthy stuff in me?


If all else fails, I'm considering weight loss surgery next year. Anyone here or someone they know had it? I am most likely considering the gastric sleeve as it's the most effective and reversible. 

Good luck.  Definitely keep at it!

Gonna post a wall of text...so I'm throwing it in a spoiler tag!

Still in the 180's.  Probably around 12-14% bodyfat.


I'm ready for a slow, clean bulk as it gets colder.  Will help that I'm getting married in a couple weeks, and my fiance cooks more than I do.  (I run and grab something too often.)

When they announced the release date for the 3DS version, I knew I had to get moving on Brawl.


To really feel like I had done *everything* in Brawl, I needed to beat one more of the 'Challenges':

Collect all stickers.


Back in 2009 sometime, when I mostly finished single-player, I had around 688 (of 700).  The last couple months, I have setup sticker farms, and played a ton of SSE on Intense. 


Last night I finally, finally, FINALLY got my last sticker!  (It was Mario - Mario Super Sluggers).  This completed the Challenges using no Golden Hammers.  This unlocked the last trophy I needed also.  (And completed the Chronicle.)


I can finally retire Brawl and be ready for the new games!

Can't believe a thread like this makes it this long here.


I think the CAG community should just post *every* thread in Video Game Deals. 


On-topic (for an off-topic), my Dreamcast is still hooked up.  I play some Samba De Amigo (and ver. 2000) from time to time.  Was happy to pick up two official maraca sets for less than $20 each way back when.

Not exactly. It was originally listed at $99.99 when the first batch of preorders went up. At some point it was marked down to $76.19 so everyone's orders were adjusted from the preorder price guarantee.

This is the correct post.  They were listed at $99, got dropped (for a short time) to the $7X price and then later adjusted to the MSRP.

Some Surepost issues are attributed to the handoff from UPS to USPS.

UPS handles the package until the last legs (delivery). There, they hand off to USPS and your local carrier delivers.

Sometimes the USPS processes these packages slowly, and sometimes UPS delays the handoff.

That's why a package can sit in your town for a few days before the delivery happens. Surepost sucks.

EDIT: That's also why tracking will update until the near end; it quits tracking during that handoff phase, it seems.

Problems with this story:

1) 10 copies of any of the games in the ad in stock in store at any one time, even early sunday

2)  a Best Buy manager giving enough of a )(&%^ to go on his personal lunch break to Walmart to perhaps find someone doing whatever

3) lo and behold finding not one or two but THREE nefarious characters out to screw corporate america in line AT THE SAME TIME AND PLACE on the managers lunch break

4) the charlatans openly having a conversation on how they were going to spend their ill gotten gains.

Just by reading the guy's (kid, most likely) posts in this thread, I wouldn't believe anything he types. 

#11947473 Are there any mods left?

Is Trakan the last/only mod then?

Remember the ECA?  Everyone jumped in for the Amazon perk and then we late found out the ECA is a shitty organization?

My Genny slot is finally getting better. I took a crappy cart and just used it on the slot for a couple days to loosen it up. The others have been fine.

Update went smooth today, also. Finished Aladdin (Genesis) tonight.

I found some old messages here that took me back to some amazing threads.  Got me thinking about some of the better (and far worse) members that used to be here.  Many older members complain lately that CAG has changed.  (I actually agree; the atmosphere here is definitely different.)


So, let's reminisce about some of our favorite old members, shall we?



The first CAG I remember.  Back in 2003, I was a lurker that would visit the site daily.  His avatar and posts were what I remember from this time period.  Always a nice guy.



Probably my favorite troll that's been on these boards.  Remember kicking the magazine rack?  Some people loved him, some hated him.  Everything sucked.



This guy was amazing.  I still sometimes say that I'm gonna "power down a sub".  He posted pics of himself, shirtless, licking his nipple.  (I'm not even going to try and find the pictures.)  Check this out.  And this.



One of the most prominent females back in the early days of CAG.  I'm not 100% sure, but, I think she was one of the "creators" of the OTT?



Picked a lot of fights.  Another OTTer.  Pretty sure Cheapy really liked him.  Wasn't he on Hell's Kitchen?

(I think he got into it with MorbidAngel4Life quite often.) 



One name most everyone would know (today).  Very nice guy.  What the heck happened to him?  I think it's been about a year since he posted.  :(


Mana Knight

Best blog ever.  I think he took it down though.  :/  Looks like his last login was just a couple months ago.  Maybe he's still around?  Anybody have old links to blog posts?


That's what I've got right now.  Gonna try and drum up some old threads.  Name some other memorable (old) users!

#11850977 YMMV ToysRUS "Green" Clearance is 50% off or more!

Posted by Rig on 18 June 2014 - 01:45 PM

Went in to a store last night and found a PVC Tomb Raider Lara statue that I bought for $12.


On the way out, by the exit, I saw a skateboard.  I looked it over, saw it was originally $500...marked down to $100 (80%).

I had to buy it.  It's an EMAD Street Surfer electric skateboard. 


Had a blast last night riding it!  At $100, it was an amazing pickup!
