Starting weight was 211lbs
Weighed in today at 196
for a total loss of 7.11%
Fell apart the last month but still kept it under 200.
Again, thanks to fletcherfam for starting this.
It was my first time in any type
of diet contest and it kept me motivated.
I even would start to feel guilty after my 8th beer, oh, I would still keep drinkin
But I felt bad about it =))
Start a second summer job, soon, that helps keep the pounds off.
Be cool to see how everyone keeps doing
@fishlessman, holy crap, just looked at your after pictures and you look like a different person!! Way to go!!
Congrats to everyone on their individual weight loss triumphs. I can't report any real success, but my effort was seriously lacking. I tried the paleo diet thing for about 10 days, and that's all I lasted. I think it was too much, too soon. Oh well...lesson learned.
LBGE since June 2012
I didn't do nearly as well as I hoped but I'm motivated to keep moving in the right direction. Starting weight 282.0, todays weight 254.6, by my calculation I've dropped 9.7%. More importantly I'm hitting the gym, running and meeting monthly with a dietician. Ten years ago I was at 205, hopefully the needle keeps moving that direction.
A big thanks to Fletcherfam for getting this going and I'll send you the after pics tomorrow morning.
Congrat's to everyone who participated, are we going to keep posting weekly or monthly to the motivation in place?
All right... all right... but apart from better sanitation and medicine and education and irrigation and public health and roads and a freshwater system and baths and public order... what have the Romans done for us?
I think one of the most encouraging things about this competition is to see all of us continue eating on the egg (for the most part), losing weight, and wanting to continue this process.We will be doing a 6 month prize of an AMS Smoker for percentage of weightloss as well.
@fishlessman, the key for me is to find an exercise I enjoy. It has taken many years but I found once I am in shape I actually enjoy running. I like riding my bike too but just not on the roads.
I was bad really bad. I had 4 Maker's, three 24 oz PBR's and 2 vodka/redbull's on Friday night. That set the tone for the whole weekend. Back on the right path this morning.
Funny, thought, come April 1, I would fall off the diet wagon completely.
Was craving pizza and burgers so bad.
Had the burgers on the weekend with sweet potato fries. Great, but after 1 kiddie sized burger, I was done
Have a smaller appetite for sure, also trimmed back the beer a little, very little =))
I am starting outside work, so down to 194lbs
