    okay.. i'm in this now.

    My current weight this morning was 181.2 (i know... but i'm 6 foot tall!)

    i have a stack of jeans in my closet. Literally about 45 of them... and they all range in size from a 6 to 14. I'm in a 9/10 right now. I gave up pop and lost some pounds (was 188/189) and SURPRISE! I now fit into 3 "new to me" closest jeans that have been sitting there on the floor for the past who knows how many years cause i bought them when i dated my ex in 1999-2004 era.. lol

    I keep going from 182 to 180.. and really wishing to enter into the 170's....



    My highest was when i was pregnant. I gained and gained, i figured the more i gained, the more cushion for no stretch marks and i have none. I was super skinney at 140lbs, pregency with ayden, whose now 3, i actually gained 90lbs weighing at 230 before delivery and 200 a week after giving birth. So that was the fastest i've ever lost 30lbs.

    But, count me in! I look forward to losing it and getting back into my size 6!

    sorry if this post is ----- , i'm getting ready to go home!

    Weighed in this morning and I'm down 28lbs.

    The Goddess just bought me a Weider 'Complete Home Gym' and we set it up last night. Now that it's getting colder, the wuss in me feels I won't be riding my bike as much, so in her motherly way of taking care of me... I now have a nice setup to use anytime I want. And she can use it as well.

    Now I have to figure out a way to get reception down in the basement.......... :doh:

    In the last 4 years I've lost about 100 pounds. I've gone from just under 300 pounds to just under 200 pounds. From barely fitting into size 40 pants and X-Large shirts, to being comfortable in size 33/34 pants and Medium shirts. Four years ago I struggled to run 100 yards, and now I can run 3 miles without feeling it the next day. I couldn't ride my 21 speed 5 miles without struggling, and now I can do 30 miles on a fixed gear like it's nothing at all.

    Why do I still feel like I'm a fat turd?

    I'm Jim, and I'm fat. I've come to this group in hopes of gaining control in my life again.

    Oh, wait...wrong group...sorry. Anyway, I confess...I've been trying to lose 35 pounds over the last six months.

    How am I doing?

    Well....I've lost six months.

    Count me in for some sort of accountability. Coca Cola is my downfall....yep, I know it's just battery acid with a little cola flavor and lots of sugar. But somehow, my brain thinks it needs its daily "tickle" of sweetened caffeine.

    5'4" @198# is not quite a barrel shape, nor is it "good shape".

    I'm in serious trouble of potential blackmail. The kids still have some photos of me driving the lawn tractor a few summers ago...shirtless....moobs and all. Not good facebook material, if you know what I mean.

    I'm on my way out to the shop to dust off the weight bench...which stands surrounded by several bags of returnable pop cans. Looks like the battle's on.

    Cutting out sugary beverages and soda (except diet!) was the first thing I did when I started trying to lose weight. It's a big big big reduction in your daily calorie intake, and will help level off your blood sugar. Dropping the soda alone will make you lose some weight.

    And I just did a nonstop run of 6 miles. Feels good.

    +1 I was able to do it for about two months and then fell off the wagon. I was even off coffee also...talk about a major energy boost without having to be crippled by caffeine.

    The first three or four days are absolutely the worst (major headache), but once past that, it becomes more of a psychological thing. Some foods, like pizza, subs, cheeseburgers and chili dogs just go better with soda. It's like something just snaps inside my head and tells me "swig a Coke...and hurry".

    Looks like it would do me good to avoid the trigger foods.

    That's the kind of food I eat on workout days. Need lots of fat, protein and carbs or I'll get my *** kicked. But no soda. Too sweet for me. A beer afterwards is pretty good though.

    I just started working out again & everything hurts.

    I bulked up over the last year and a half due to a compound tib/fib fracture and subsequent osteomyelitis.

    I'm 54 and was very fit before the accident, 3-4 krav maga classes a week.

    Hope to get back to training when I'm able.

    Condition falls away real quick when you are inactive doesn't it?

    Bly,

    Good for you, at 54 you are working on getting back to fit. Yes, I have noticed too that condition falls away quick when you are inactive.

    Gino - that is a real accomplishment, the amount of weight you have lost. Good for you! Isn't it nice when SHE noticies? That is fantastic!

    I'll admit, I have been stressed more than usual the past 7 months or so and have gained 10 lbs. So, I'm joining the ranks here and making the confession that I'm outa shape right now! I need to be more active. I need to be fit so I can do the physical things that my work requires. Also, so I can outrun my Grandkids (at least for now!) and do my annual summersault each birthday. My shoulder was hurting last year, so I skipped the summersault. However, I did prove once again a few weeks ago that I can still outrun the Grandkids, haha! This just amazes them, but I know that it won't last for too much longer, so I will brag about it while I can! :) 10 lbs is coming back off!!

    thanks! I don't have any "fat" full body photos, only head shots. I haven't had any pixs taken with new improved bod yet as it still is a work in progress.
