Tuesday Weigh-In

Height: 6'0
Starting Weight (1/1): 250.6 lbs
Last week's Weigh-in: 200.2 lbs
This week's Weigh-in: 197.6 lbs
Pounds Gained/Lost this week: -2.6 lbs
Pounds Gained/Lost total: -53.0 lbs
Goal weight (190 lbs): 7.6 lbs to go

Things are progressing well. It was a good week for the dieting, as I seem to be used to the hungry all the time feeling. And when I do eat, I am getting full almost immediately, where it feels like what I just ate is sitting there. Time to drop the WW points down, too.

And my moods seem to be getting better. I think it's the nice weather, as I have been outside mostly everyday, even after going to the gym, playing with the kids. A lot more positive energy and having fun. My sons' baseball season and indoor football season are starting too, so I will help out with that as well. Ah, spring!!!

As for the exercising, not much has changed. Only thing that's different is instead of the eliptical on Wednesdays, I'm using the stepper in fat burn mode for 30 mins (man do I sweat doing that), followed by a 10 minute walk on the treadmill on a 10.0 incline at 4mph. I finish the day off doing stomach crunches.

Kudos to everyone on sticking with your plans. It's inspiring to see that everyone is doing great, getting new wardrobes and hitting your personal goals. Keep it up!

I had no idea this thread was here. I rarely look in the Off Topic section. Anyway, it is great to read everyone's weight loss success stories. I am currently losing weight myself. I use the MyFitnessPal app on my iPhone. I would switch to the Lose It app, but all of my progress is already on MFP, so I'll stick with that. But I think I'll come here every week to check in and see how everyone is progressing, and to share my progress. My heaviest weight was 265 lbs (marriage will do that to you). I don't want to include that weight in my plan though since I have gradually lost a lot of weight since then. So I will start with my most recent weight when I actually became serious about losing weight (damn Christmas set me back a couple pounds though, hehe).

Age: 32
Height: 5'7"
Starting Weight: 232 lbs (October 2011)
Current Weight: 205 lbs (March 20, 2012)
First Goal Weight: 199 lbs (by Sunday April 1st so I can fit into the Rock t-shirt I bought too small (on purpose) when I go to Wrestlemania!
Main Goal Weight: 175 lbs (may need to lose more, but I don't know how I'll look or feel at that weight, so I'll adjust).

I work full time and I am taking three classes in college, so unfortunately exercising time is limited, which is why I think I haven't lost weight faster. I do eat well, and keep my calories between 1200 - 1340 per day. I allow myself a cheat night (not a full day, just a dinner) once a week. I mainly eat for breakfast things like yogurt and oatmeal. For lunch I eat lean cuisine meals (which I know are loaded with crap, but I am concentraing on low calories right now, and again, time is not on my side to make lots of healthy food for every meal). For dinner, I eat lots of fish, chicken, chicken tacos (totally low calorie the way I make them and delicious), veggie burgers, tons of vegetables, and stuff like that. For snacks, I eat fruit and celery, granola bars, fat free pudding, and baked chips single serve bags. I count calories of every food I eat. I drink water and fresh brewed iced tea.

For exercise, it varies. I have a treadmill in my apartment, so I use that, going between 2-3 miles per session (depending on homework). I also utilize my PS Move and Kinect for cardio. They seriously work great. I have recently gotten into tennis, so I picked up Grand Slam Tennis 2 and played for an hour and a half with my Move on Saturday, burning 450 calories and having fun in the process. I just picked up a tennis racket to play some real tennis (though I don't know how) and that should increase my burned calories quite a bit. I try to exercise at least 5 days a week.

Anyway, thanks to all of my fellow weight loss CAGs for listening to my story. I hope to see more success from myself and you guys in the coming months. Good luck to you all!

Going to have to start this up again. After doing battle with some depression I resorted to pizza therapy... which resorted into fatness.
Last time I checked..a few weeks ago I was 206lbs. ;( I'm 5'6.
I haven't checked it recently.

The only thing I've been doing is eating very low carb (starchy bread crap, but still eating veggies and fruits sporadically) and have been feeling great. For exercise, ehh... I've just been walking to and from my train instead of taking the apartment shuttle. It's a mile each away. So that's 2 miles a day/10 miles a week..which isn't bad. Not to mention I have an hour lunch break..I eat for 20-30 mins and walk for the next 30-40 minutes (weather pending, of course)

Probably once I gather more energy and motivation (which is happening rapidly) I'll probably start some basic in the apartment dumbell lifting/push up doing routine.

Just trying to not overdo it. This diet has been great. Eating eggs all the time is delicious. Butter is delicious. Meat is delicious. Hooray low carbs!

Eggs are delicious, I'll give you that! I try to not overdo it on the butter, but I know I use more than I need half the time.

Mightymek, that's pretty solid weight loss.

I feel like I've been redistributing my weight lately more than losing it lol. For every bit I lose in my stomach I can see my legs growing (good thing though, I've been spending 2-3 days a week on them). I'm not as concerned about weight now as I am about inches. I feel and can see my stomach (slowly) getting smaller. It is weird though, because I noticed that I am losing weight on the sides of my stomach faster than the rest of it lol. It's all good though. That and my face has thinned out so I am starting to look like my normal self again. With all the nice weather we have been having I've been able to get out on my bicycle more, and it feels good. My wife is starting to come on them with me too :)

Before I went vegan, I probably contributed to 10-percent of overall sales in the early-2000s. I loved that stuff. :)

That's definitely awesome news, Javery. Nice work, 83. Those 7.6 pounds shouldn't be much more than a cough at this point. ;)

Good luck with your goals, Lilboo and MightyMek!

Short TRT update. Very little back acne, but nothing more than what I experienced with HGH. Test really is a wonder treatment. I sorta plateaued at 9-percent body fat. I have no doubt that I'll be able to knock that down to 5 like I wanted before adding more mass to 190. I've been able to shave off a lot of my workout time while maintaining myself. A mere 120 minutes and I'm done. I have a big chunk of my nights back. I feel like I'm 21 again. (I'm 27.)

Keep pushing the pace, everyone!

Weigh-In
Age: 30
Height: 5'5"
Starting Weight (3/5/12): 149 lbs
Last week's Weigh-in: 147 lbs
This week's Weigh-in: 150 lbs
Pounds Gained/Lost this week:+3 lbs
Pounds Gained/Lost total: +1lbs
Goal weight (135 lbs): 16 lbs to go

I definitely messed up this past week, apparently gaining 3 lbs. Part of it is because family came to visit and we ate at Fire on the Mountain, a delicious hot wing place. Hot wings aren't the best for weight loss. The other problem recently is that the weather has been so rainy and cold that I haven't been taking walks as long as usual on my lunch break (or been taking the dog out as far on walks either), so that's been cutting into exercise. Suggestions?

I've been such a slacker these past two weeks.

Haven't been to the gym. My fiancé and I are moving into our house on the 30th, and things are just way too hectic right now with packing, work, etc.

My diet hasn't slacked though, which makes me happy.

I had a full week off out of the gym last week (mainly because I was in Dallas for ANW). When I returned, I thought I'd be getting a great workout and great pump...

Nope. My last two workouts I have felt terrible. Kinda like all the strength was sapped. Maybe it's because I was also off my good diet in Dallas?

Either way, I'm disappointed. Hoping tomorrow's workout is an improvement over the last couple.

Whenever I have a break from the gym I feel like I come back stronger, rejuvenated. Hope your next work out goes a little better! Not looking forward to doing legs today...still sore from Tuesday and a long rider I had yesterday :(

I'm so pissed right now. I had to work until 1:30 so there was just no way I could get out of bed at 5 this morning so I missed my workout. Plus I'm sick now and I didn't eat dinner but I had an ice cream sandwich and a black and white cookie at about 2AM because I was starving at that point. Goddammit.

Maybe it was the Black and White Cookie that made you sick...just like Seinfeld!

LOOK TO THE COOKIE!!!

But seriously, one workout shouldn't break you, especially after the tear you've been on lately. Look at it as a day of rest for working all those long hours.

I look to the cookie way too much. My wife buys this giant container of black and white cookies from BJ's for the kids and they are so freaking delicious. They aren't the big kind - maybe 3" in diameter but the icing is nice and hard and the cookie part is super soft. God I love them.

The one day off won't kill me but I won't be able to get to the gym until Monday (wife works weekends) meaning 5 days between workouts. I might try to go for a run super-early tomorrow to get some exercise in. My gym doesn't open until 8 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday so going there early is out. Ugh.

Black and white cookie. Not getting along?

I'm in that "hungry all the time" zone again, and admittedly I've eaten like crap all week. Still staying within my points, but my food choices have been questionable. Like why did I have that Soft Pretzel (6 points), when I could have had a Turkey and Cheese Wrap (4 points).

I will run 4 miles today as punishment for my stupidity! And it will be on the treadmill at the gym...I don't deserve to run in Sunny and 76 degree weather. :lol:

Today's workout was terrific; maybe Monday and Wednesday were just a fluke. *shrugs*

I'm at 160 pounds now. I think I'm ready to go into a 4-6 month "bulk" phase. Eating more calories and bulking up. Then again, the bodyfat % will go up too...and it's "shirt off" spring/summer season. :lol: Decisions.

I had a great week, got my 1 mile run time down to 6:30 :D.

The best part is that I believe I can run faster next week because about two thirds of the way through I actually increased my pace because it just occurred to me that I didn't feel physically unable to run faster so much as I was just convinced in my mind that I couldn't run faster.

That's my issue right now, Rig. I meant to go down to 5-percent body fat before I started adding mass, but injury messed up my timeline. Now that I started TRT, I'll have to see if these OTC HGH products work better. Prior, they made me pretty lean, and I went down to 7-percent body fat. Right now, I'm 181 at 9-percent body fat. I have yet to kick it back up a gear. Been doing more cardio than strength, so I've dropped a few pounds.

And for most uneducated women, fatty for-show muscles will probably catch their eyes before lean muscle. Unless you're huge like, say, Chael Sonnen or super-chiseled like Yoshihiro Akiyama.

And good work, Troy. :) Congrats, sir!

That's awesome, congrats. I actually plateaued at 205 myself two weeks ago...it sucks. I have a friend who is a personal trainer, he gave me some tips on eating better, not just low calories like I have been, but higher proteins and good calories, not empty calories. So I made the change, started drinking protein shakes, and started a 30-day workout program with the UFC Personal Trainer Kinect game, and I am also happy to say, I finally broke 205 this morning and am now 204!

Awesome man - keep it going.

I am officially 5 days into a week off from working out... I missed on Friday due to work and I was sick all weekend, including last night, so I skipped this morning too. Next scheduled gym time will be Wednesday morning (1 week from my last workout). Ugh. I actually slept from 4 p.m. Saturday all the way until Sunday morning only getting up for an hour around 10 p.m. I'm feeling OK right now so maybe I can sneak in a run after work depending on the weather and if my wife doesn't care about me being out of the house after the kids are in bed... I don't know. I hate being sick.

I was originally planning on taking next Monday off because this weekend is going to be a mess but now I'm thinking I may need to dial it back and then suck it up on Monday. One week off shouldn't kill me but I eat a lot when I'm not feeling well for some reason. I've been working out a ton so I guess I was due for a bit of a crash.

Tuesday Weigh-In

Height:
6'0
Starting Weight (1/1): 250.6 lbs
Last week's Weigh-in: 197.6 lbs
This week's Weigh-in: 196.8 lbs
Pounds Gained/Lost this week: -0.8 lbs
Pounds Gained/Lost total: -53.8 lbs
Goal weight (190 lbs): 6.8 lbs to go

I was able to drop almost a pound this week, but man, did my body fight me every step of the way. I brought it all on myself with questionable food choices all week, but I was able to stick to my points. If anything, it feels like a set-back and has reinvigorated me to try and do better.

The one positive thing this week has been my exercise routine. I was able to run 5.25 miles in 50 minutes, which is a personal best so far. I'm also up to 75 crunches on the giant ball holding a 5 lb weight. When I started, I could only do 10. I think I'd like to add a exercise goal of a 10K race by the end of the summer. If anything, that might motivate me to keep running, which is beginning to feel like a drag. On the hoops side, it's good to be able to lead the fast break now. And I'm starting to readjust to my new dimensions with my shot...although the big guys are out-rebounding me consistently. But, I'll take it.

Keep up the good fight, everyone!

Slow week? Hope everyone is sticking to thier plans! ;)

Just wanted to vent on how weird my body has been lately...I was so busy at work yesterday I didnt even have time to eat anything. I also had to work late, go to the gym, take my son to football practice, and I had a World of Warcraft raid (NERD!), so there was literally no time to eat anything except 11 Good's Ultra Thin pretzels (1 serving/ 2 points) all day. That's it!

So, for fun I jumped on the scale and I gained 1.8 lbs...from my weigh-in on Tuesday to Wednesday night. :lol: With only 11 thin pretzels and 64oz of water. How do you gain almost 2 lbs. from 11 pretzels and water?

Stoopid body fluctuations!!!

That's a crazy fluctuation in one day LoL. That's why I try to only do a weekly weigh in, otherwise I wouldn't be able to stop thinking about what I "gained" the previous day.

It has actually been a really good week thus far for me. Hoping for a huge drop Friday. I've been doing all my workout routine, and added some more cardio with the weather being nice. Walked 7 miles Tuesday, that got my body tired (and of course it was legs day, that was smart). With it being so nice I've been biking more, and cutting the grass was a nice cooldown yesterday. Today's a leg day, and I feel pretty good about it. Probably going to walk/bike a few miles too.

I'm probably going to post a pic tomorrow, just so everyone has an idea of where I'm at, and where I was.

Been a really good week for me so far. I am very close to goal # 1, which was 199 lbs by Sunday. I am 201.7 (was 205.7 on this past Saturday) as of this morning. Lots of protein, lower and healthier carbs, and doing the UFC Personal Trainer workout program/light weight lifting (and sticking with it this time) is working very well for me.

I'm back baby. I made it to the gym on Wednesday after 6 days off and all is right with the world. Tomorrow should be nuts - I have a DOUBLE workout in the morning and it's the pure cardio non-stop insanity one followed by insane abs and then some light lifting and 25 minutes on the treadmill. Then I have to work all day and around 6 drive to AC so I'll be up until god knows when depending on how the craps table is treating me.

I've pretty much stopped trying to lose weight. I'm at 178 which I think is perfect for me so from now on I'll be just trying to shift things around (lose the small layer of belly fat and maybe add some muscle). I still weigh-in once a week though to make sure I'm not going off the reservation... My vacation is the last week in July so I'm thinking I might start P90X at the beginning of May and see what I can do before that week at the beach... of course I'm going to be a daddy (again) around May 16 so that plan might not be possible...

Checked in at 184.8 pounds for my scale visit this week. Quickly approaching the 90 total pounds lost mark.

Ran the first 6 minute mile of my life. Never thought that would happen. The weather is finally warm enough that I can run outside and I'm glad to finally be off the treadmill.

My dead hang pull-ups are getting a lot better, my max set so far has been 8 reps. I've been doing a pyramid program with rep sets like this: 1,2,3,4,5,6,5,4,3,2,1 and it's helping a lot.

Even though I'm still losing weight, my diet hasn't been that great the last two weeks. I've been within the calorie limits set by Lose It, but there's been too much cake and brownies and other questionable decisions. I think I've just got tired of preparing food lately, so hopefully I can get back on track with that.



I'd like to thank Number83 for the inspiration. 50+ pounds in 3 months is awesome :applause:. You said you play basketball right? How much better has your game become thanks to the lighter load?

Age: 32
Height 5' 10'' usually
Starting Weight: 261
Goal Weight: 220
LoseIt: cjacks9@gmail.com

I actually started in January at 263. I was only trying to watch what I ate. Early February I started going to the gym. I just picked a four week workout regimen online which seemed mild enough for starters. And I'm still not done with it. I've got another day to go. Working nights plus being lazy did me in.

But I'm back on the grind now. My gut is huge and has got to go. I'm looking for a new regimen, hopefully something that includes cardio along with weights, because I abhor cardio. Or my fat does.

Cheers.

Gratz on your hard work! I can't imagine running a 6 minute mile...Hell, I can't imagine running a 7 minute mile. :D And 90 lbs is amazing!

I can relate to the questionable food choices. That's half my battle. I can only eat so many turkey wraps before I just get sick of it. And making dinner for everyone else, and then having to eat my rabbit food is not fun! Take tonight, for example. My wife bought Cheeseburgers that I can make on the grill. They are stuffed with Bacon and Cheese. Think I can have one? Nope...It's a can of soup for me. So angry!!!!

As for my basketball game, my stamina is great. I can really get out and run the fast break now. My defense has improved and I am not gassed like I used to be after playing. However, my shot is all over the place. A lot of that has to do with muscle memory and with the change in weight, I've probably lost a lot of muscle too. My 3 point shot barely hits the rim. I easily get cleared out from the rebounds too...but that's probably because I guy I usually play against is 6'3" and 270+ lbs. He says it's too easy now. But it's so much fun, and does not feel like a work out at all.
