    I'm a lard butt too Pacertom. Thats why we're trying this out.

    I'll post my weight updates on Fridays too.

    I'd be happy to send my money to whomever is holding it.

    I am in...I am approximately 247 (like my twin brother brichard )

    I will give you an official number this weekend...my Weight Watchers weigh in is Saturday morning. I was tracking downward for awhile...but have veered off badly these past few weeks. Looking forward to some added motivation.

    If anyone needs a good site to keep track of the exercise they've done, I use www.mapmyrun.com and it works really well for me.

    Let's do it this way - We'll have two categories: "In It to Win It" and "Fantasy League".

    I'm a betting man, so I'm going to lay $10 on the line and be in the first category. But I don't want to exclude anyone over a little bet, so for those of you that just want to use this thread as a motivator, PLEASE don't hesitate to post your starting wieght, results, thoughts, recipes, or whatever else you want here. You'll be tracked in the "Fantasy League" category.

    I'm going to assume that everyone that has posted their weight is "in it to win it". If you would like to be a part of the Fantasy League instead, let me know no later than Monday, August 27, After that, you're locked in at $10.

    Also, keep in mind that anyone can join the "In it to win it" group at any time, But your official starting wieght will be your weight the day you join "In It to Win It". (meaning if you lose twenty pound and THEN join the prize group, your 20 pounds won't count - hope this makes sense).

    As usual, thoughts, ideas and comments are more than welcome.


    Here are the competitors:

    IN IT TO WIN IT:
    Los Angeles - 176
    Gyron - 244.5
    Brich - Official Starting Weight Needed
    Irk Woodsman - 263
    SykamoreKen - 210
    Cobol Sam - 193

    FANTASY LEAGUE:
    Brichard - Official Starting Weight Needed
    Eindar - Official Starting Weight Needed
    Pacertom - Official Starting Weight Needed
    bellisimo - Official Starting Weight Needed

    OK, count me in as all in, or "it to win it". Hopefully at some point I can post a before and after pic. Here goes...

    Weight on 8/24/07 (today): 298.5 lb.

    Other stats
    Beginning of weight loss: 5/18/07
    Initial weight: 330.5
    Total weight lost: 32 lb.
    Time: 14 weeks (2.3 lb./week)

    Hopefully I can keep it up or accelerate. The first 15 pounds came off a lot faster than the next 15, at at least 3 lb/week. I think that the body has some dastardly mechanisms to slow down your metabolism after you have lost >10 lb., making it necessary to exercise more but at the same time making you more tired and less eager to exercise. Lately a pound or pound and a half a week has been about all that I can muster, but maybe this can motivate me a little more.

    Ok, first week's weigh in.

    I am now at 243.5.

    One pound down, about 40 to go....

    This week, I started eating lunches I brought to work everyday instead of going out, eating more fruit. For lunches, I had whole wheat wrap with low sodium turkey or low sodium chicken and low fat swiss cheese with mustard as the condiment. That should be easier on the wallet as well.

    I also am trying to fit in small snacks throughout the day.

    I have not had the time to start excersing yet, but that will start this weekend. I've decided to start taking a walk with my son every night for a beginning.

    this past week I've basically cut the snacking - lately I've been eating just for the sake of doing something - which is a big NO NO...and I feel good about it...

    gone back to my usual small breakfast - no lunch - regular dinner plan...hopefully this will be the motivation to keep me stickin' to it...

    I kinda realized that as the weights go down - the money in my pocket doesn't vanish - damn never realized junk food was a pocket burner

    I am in it at 243 starting weight.

    I am off to a good start so far, although it is hard to get to excited about a couple of days

    I have been doing Weight Watchers off and on over the past few years, and when I journal/follow the program...it works. What I am trying to do this go around is to customize my diet a little better. Weight Watchers allows you to basically eat whatever you want, as long as you stay with in your points range. Points are calculated based on food/fat/calorie values of food. They recommend you eat 4 servings fruits/vegetables, drink lots of water, and have at least two dairy sources. It sounds complicated, but it isn't that bad. It is kind of like counting calories. It is a pain to crunch numbers at first, but after awhile, you realize you tend to eat the same stuff so you know what is what.

    The only problem that I see is that even though I am sticking to the program, I still have too many processed carbohydrates and not enough protien in my diet. There is nothing wrong with baked lays, those 100 cal snacks, etc. (IMO) as long as it is a very small part of your diet...I just eat too much of that stuff. I am also not necessarily a "high protein" guy, but I do believe it holds you a little better, so if you are looking to lose weight it is helpful to increase it in the mix of what you eat.

    I am also going to start excercising. I did the treadmill on Saturday, and my goal is to do that at least 5 days a week, and I will build in some minor strenght training after I get that going. I know both are important, but one day at a time here. : )

    So this is my targeted plan:

    1) Keep using Weight Watchers...attend meetings.
    2) Less processed carbs...more whole grains/lean or dairy sources of protein.
    3) Incorporate cardio program immediately, strength training mid-term.

    I'll compile a new list of competitors with the new posted results. If you've posted two weigh-ins, I'll start calculating your percentages.

    I'm in Vegas and MAN OH MAN it is REALLY hard to keep the pounds off here.

    I'm sticking with protein, fruit and vegtables as best as I can. When I have a coctail, it's mostly vodka tonics or gin and tonics (very few calories in those relative to other mixed drinks and/or beer).

    There are no scales here, so I have to weigh in when I get back home.

    Keep it up - I mean - down!

    235.8 Weigh in this morning.

    Steady as she goes...

    I weigh in before I work out, but I've got a good start to the week. I did the elliptical machine for 30 minutes and I tend to do about 15 minutes of weight training everyday I work out... like today. My wife and I then went to McCloud Park in Hendricks county and did some trails. Today is our 13th Wedding Anniversary, so we decided to get out and hike without the kids.

    I just completed my third week of healthy eating/exercise, so that is good news for me. They say it takes 21 days to make a habit and I really feel like I am in the "healthy living zone."

    Good luck to everybody!
