Just wanted to brag a little bit...now that I'm back unloading trucks at Lowe's, I hit 25,000 steps for the day yesterday. That's 11.06 miles for the day.

Keep that up and you'll lose those 10 lbs quickly!

Rev. I tell you. I forced myself to step on the scale, and my fear was correct. I gained 3 pounds, it is very discouraging to see that, but pushing through the tough days and continuing on is just as important as taking the first step of going. It’s about the end result, not the result after a few weeks. This is what I hope to be a lifestyle change, so giving up and quitting doesn’t fit that change. Discouraged or not pushing forward is a must. Thank you for the encouragement. 


It’s a process - it’s not so different from SuperSpeed training - fitness works but it’s not magic - user error will derail the process every time. The nice thing is there is always a do over button and tomorrow is another day.

I saw at the beginning of the year someone said they were going to try and do 100 push ups and 100 sit ups a day.  I decided why not try this.  It sounds easy, and after 2 months I am still going strong.  So far this year I have worked out 43 days.  This has lead to 7190 sit ups and 8075 push ups.  Now yes my body is changing, but dang I was doing a lot of work. 

So being the dummy I am I looked for a change.  Yesterday I found it.  I decided to work on my form and holding each rep for 1 second longer.  This made a huge change in my work out and 100 of each is very hard to get to.  Now I know by doing just 100 and doing the work out correctly I will continue to progress. 

Hopefully everyone is having a good start to the year and we all can be golfing soon.

That's a good approach - holding a second. I'm going to try that as right now I get to get through them as Anastasia as possible.

I've been holding steady at around 214 for the past couple weeks but my wife noticed that my physique is changing for the better - less gut and less "love handles". I still would like to get down to 200-ish, but I'm pretty happy with progress.

I hate the ups and downs of weighing in every day. Did nothing obviously wrong yesterday and was up a pound and a half over the day before. (I keep a diary of what I eat and my exercise as apart of my program).

Well tomorrow is a new day - I have my meals laid out for the day and they’re healthy, already worked out and will get lots of steps in between a funeral, half hour at the practice green and church tonight.

I’m betting the entire pound and a half is gone by tomorrow morning and more than that by Monday because I’m playing golf after church tomorrow.

From Nov 11th last year, I’m down from 248 to 224. I attribute this to generalities. I cut way back on white stuff. Sugar, potatoes, bread, etc. and joining the new club with all the rain has me getting a lot more walking, and playing 3-4 rounds a week.

i don’t have a box of cookies in the kitchen, or a tub of ice cream in the freezer.

but I still have a little bit of all the bad things here and there, just much less of it.

i check weight every morning and yes it goes up and down, but generally on a downward trend. I think it’s mostly a state of mind, similar to quitting smoking. You just won’t lose weight until you decide you’re not going to be a fattie anymore. I’ve been off cigarettes for 13-14 years now, and I’m still a fattie”, but less than I used to be. I’m pretty sure by the end of a year I’ll be at least 40 it’s less, and hopefully more. I think slow but steady wins this race...

Had to buy new golf pants for my trip next weekend to Pinehurst. The ones that I bought last season didn’t fit anymore...in the good sense. For the first time in my life I can wear flat front pants and not look terrible. Still not good but will take a bit better than terrible.

I'm struggling- weight probably gone up- too scared to look- tummy and chest def bigger and I hate it.

I think I need to follow a simple 'plan' of foods to eat and avoid as this is no good and it's nearly mid March.

I've become a fit ole coot over the last several months.  Leading a military BCT FABS Fitness group calls for lot's of exercise and encouraging my members.   I wanted to bust 200 lbs in a bad way however I dropped a pants size instead.  This was my revelation for the last week of our boot camp program.

 

Good morning troops! I hope you all are focusing on your goals and getting er done. I have a bad good problem All my pants are literally falling off me these days. I was helping my wife at the animal shelter recently and I felt my jeans sagging. Hey I'm 68 years old and I don't do sagging! At least not intentionally. Anyways I was walking this ambitious dog or it was walking me back towards the building. I was holding on for dear life and next thing I know my pants had slid off my hips to my ankles!!! 😳 I quickly pulled them up and looked around to see if anybody had seen this old man with his pants down while my wife was hysterically laughing. Yea, I got a good bad problem going on... lol 😁

The thing is, I am 200 lbs and have not wore a size 36 pants in many decades. Looks like I need to suck it up and put on some little boy pants. 😉

oops! I've gained half a stone since Jan 🙄

new focus as of yesterday- fruit, chicken, rice, more fruit, less cr@p, less sugar, no wine (gin instead).

This ain't easy especially in Winter when your body is telling you to layer up😂

Keeping up pretty well so far as we enter into mid March.  Since the start of the year I've gone from 237 to 215, with my goal to hit closer to the 200 mark.  Crazy how I ballooned so much in a short time (my largest in college was my current weight).  I've really noticed that my stamina has gone up during exercise and I'm a lot less sore than I used to be even though I'm running/working out so much more.

Ran a 5:45 mile the other day and that's by far the fastest I've ever attempted.  When I don't have a lot of time, I've been doing interval sprints on the treadmill.  Run 1 minute at a slow job at 6 mph then the next minute around 9.5 or higher and do that for about 20 minutes.  Need to continue to lift weights, but I've been traveling more for work and always trying to keep up with my 3 young children (4 y/o, 2 y/o, 8 months) so it's made it a bit tougher.

Good luck to everyone still going strong and those that are looking to get in a little better shape or even make a healthier choice.  Have a great week!
