Hi gang,

I'm for this!

In April I started at 221-222lbs. Down to 212lbs, and hovering LOL! Resorted to running each day (~2-2.5 miles on the treadmill at work on lunch), instead of every 2-3 per week. So far so good.

I need to make sure I drink enough water, though. While loosing water weight helps with the scales, it sucks for the body .

I'll keep everyone posted on my progress. My main goal is to loose the extra 12 lbs (to get to 200) by Halloween, so I can properly indulge in the holiday treats (candy bag, what candy bag....there isn't one missing, is there? ).

Sweet! Good Luck with your goal Chris!

I use a running app called mapmyrun, username mattbirchfield ; I try to run at least 2x a week, but my schedule is written in warm jello so it gets hard sometimes. I am hovering right around 200, and I just cant seem to get below it. I would like to get down to the 180 range, but it is what it is.

Matt

Yeah, since I use a treadmill, I go nowhere fast

You know, running and reading are kind of the same for me. I hate to start, but once going, I can't seem to stop

I weighed 208 this morning, so we'll see if we can drop below that this week. Our next trip to WDW is in Nov (parents are in Clearwater, so we are visiting for T-giving). Looking forward to indulging in Mickey goods there.

However, I'm not sure if I will keep the routine while on vacation. It is a bit harder to make the time, but walking around the World may help with that. In fact, the real jump start for all this was in May at DLR. Walking around the parks left me tired but exercised. I thought I'd just keep going.

What really sux is that we were going to be in WDW over Thanksgiving as well, but the budget couldn't support and we had to cancel. Maybe next time.

Just finished 3 miles, just over 10 min 20 sec pace. Wasnt really happy with the run, I blame the heat and the heavy lunch I had.

Hey guys!!

Keep up the good work!! I hope to be back on the weight-loss wagon soon!! I was using myfitnesspal to lose weight for our trip and I managed to lose 40lbs!!

Came back from the trip, and I had gained 4lbs back. Not too bad. A week later, I had gained another 3!

Time to put the kabosh on that trend!! Following labor day weekend, DW and DD will start school, and hopefully I will have time to fit some exercise into my schedule and get back into a routine.

my new goal will be to lose another 15-20lbs by the end of the year. I am also going to shoot to run my town's 5K in November.

Keep working!! Keep Posting!!

Wow! that's great!! Keep it up!! Intrigued by Insanity, but not sure if I'm crazy enough. Actually, not sure how my schedule is going to work out starting next month. If all is going well by October, then perhaps I'll give it a shot.

I have 5 weeks to bulk and tone, as per my DW request.

I have a pre-constructed workout plan, now that work has got a little more settled. I should be able to workout in the gym at work or at home.

I will be 47 in a week and my goal is to lose my age in weight by my 48th birthday. I am at about 255 now. I started back swimming Monday and Wednesdays (about 1.5 miles per swim) in June and have not seen any loss of weight. Any suggestions, I am thinking cardio 3 times a week and to focus more on restraining my consumption. Since I am in my 40's I do realize that I am not going to lose as quickly due to metabolism.

Any advice, especially on diet and restraint?

FYI my fitness activities are (note they are low impact):
biking (not just cruising, if I cruise with my kids I spin)
swimming (do a mile in about 20-25 minutes)
walking

The best site that I can recommend for diet and restraint is using a app/website call myfitnesspal. You can enter your weight, and how many pounds you want to safely lose per week (the site recommends 2 lbs per week). Once you start seeing how many calories a day you eat, it gets a lot easier to moderate your intake.

I need to lose a few so I don't sink the Magic... or at least make it drift to one side.
