Further to OG and GS Barba's posts regarding weight loss and helping each other out, I'm starting this thread in the hopes that those of us that need or could stand to lose a bit of weight will chime in.

 

I really want to get down to 180lbs. I've been struggling with my weight for years and my lowest (about 6 months ago) was 199.2lbs. 

 

I've crept back up to 207lbs and am not really happy about it....but that's the holiday season.

 

So, I'm thinking that those of you who want to participate can just post here, maybe what you're doing, eating etc or just a weekly/fortnightly weigh in.

 

So that's it in a nutshell, chime in or I'll talk to myself.

Alrighty! These quests always work better when there's a group and there's a little friendly competition involved. I know I don't want to be the guy who actually gains weight during this challenge...

 

I like it - first official weigh-in January 1, but let's agree not to post shirtless pictures. None of us wants to see that.... :o  :o

I have used a low carb diet and had success. It works for me. Plus I feel full (instead of like I’m starving myself).
Have been able to drop 20+ lbs. on a few different occasions.
I never had to worry with this stuff until my metabolism waned during late 40’s.

Personally haven't tried it, but putting either (or both) apple cider vinegar and lemon juice in your water is supposed to be a good way to help you lose weight. Controls insulin levels (fat storage hormone and blood sugar drop), helps with digestion, and boosts metabolism

My only suggestion is one that works for everyone every time. It's not in a book, seen on TV, or the web. Doesn't require any special shopping or meal plan subscriptions. You can eat any food you like.

 

It's called.... Eat Less.

 

You like steak? Me too... eat less.

How about hamburgers and fries? eat less.

Ice cream? donuts, cookies, pie.. eat less

Mashed potatoes and gravy? Mmmmm.... eat less.

Fried Chicken? eat less

Full combination plate at Jose's? eat less

 

I think you get the idea. We all eat too damn much and I'm no different. After about the first week or maybe two you'll see the pounds fall right off. 

Take the challenge and eat less.

This also means to cut out a bunch of beer and liquor. Drink less. Eat less. Live longer!

Oh, you'll also gain 20 extra yards off the tee and make more putt$.  :)

I drink a small glass of apple cider vinegar every morning.  I mixed mine with honey and water. It gives me a good shot of energy and has really helped my digestive system.

So should this go from Jan 1st to say around April-may? That’s when the north should thaw out I’m guessing

    Anyone out there wear or have worn New Balance spikes? In my opinion they make a pretty good shoe. As of late they have worked there way into the baseball scene and appears they have done quite well.
