Well, my weigh in was tonight, and I guess the tweaking of my cardio workouts have paid off.. -5.2lbs this week! I am expecting a "down" week next week now, just because that seems to be my pattern.

I did just make a realization though - with this loss I have lost 1/3 of my total beginning weight.. just WOW.

I would be lying if I said I wasnt a little emotional when I realized this..





very cool

you should feel very proud...this is a superb achievement

Wow, Chuck. That is amazing. Truly. Think of all you've gained by all you've lost. Keep up the good work and keep us lazy asses honest!

Ran 4 miles this morning in the early dawn chill. Felt pretty good and let the legs do their thing.

Now that that's out of way and today being Friday, tonight I'm enjoying a double!

Rock On everyone! Keep up the good fight!

Ran two miles on the treadmill yesterday evening to relieve a little anxiety. Then my buddy asked me to go swim some laps. So we ran another mile and a half up to the pool over the ridge line, swam about six laps (more of a relaxation thing) then walked back over the ridge line home. I wish y'all could see the stars down here. It is so dark at night that you can often see shooting random shooting stars.

This morning I got up and ran on the treadmill again for twenty minutes at a pace of 6.2, incline of 2.0, came back and knocked out a hundred push-ups in increments of ten to twenty at a time. Now we're getting ready to do three miles of ridge line trail this afternoon. I think I'll be ready for bed tonight.

I am trying to tailor my food intake a bit more and drop a few pounds by April when I have my bi-annual military weigh-in. I have about ten more to go.

Great work Wharf! I got fired up just texting with you a couple of weeks ago.

Don't worry about those plateaus. They are going to happen whether we like it or not but switching things up is the way to go. I'm not working out in a gym so I don't have access to the tools that will let me switch things up as much and that is a concern. I've done enough weight training to be familiar with a good variety of exercise but am basically doing it with a pair of 15 lbs dumbells and now resistance bands.

We'll be hitting the 2 month mark soon and haven't slowed down. I was worried about getting tired of it but the mindset is that it's truly a lifestyle change and not just a temporary resolution.

The results are starting to show for sure. I think I was expecting more but I have to realize that the only exercise I was getting for the past 5 years was in the form of 12 oz curls so I'm convinciing myself not to get discouraged.

My goal when this all started (1/3) was to lose 20 lbs by my 40th bday which is 4/30. I think I'm still on track for that but I think I'm putting on muscle too so that always tricks the scale. I can definitely tell that I'm shedding fat so I guess that's what's most important.

Keep it up!

Thanks everyone for contributing. That's huge!
Tim I want to know more about the perfect pushups and Brendan I actually watched an infomercial about P90X a couple weeks ago and thought that looked liked a great workout. Anyway that being said, something is always better than nothing.
The last time I checked I was done 5 lbs. It didn't seem like alot but I can tell I'm losing it on my legs and waist and I'm starting to notice muscles I haven't seen in awhile. I only get on the scale 2 times a month which is fine for me. I may not be losing all the weight but if I'm losing fat that's most important for me.

I got a great men's health diet book in a used book store for $3 and that really got me going. I'm not following it to at T but there is some good **** in there. I work out a minimum of 4 days a week and it's a mix of walking, cardio dvd, and weights. Hooch always said she'd never walk in the cold but January was brutal and we walked our asses off so I know things will only get better.

Need tips for losing belly fat. It's gone down a bunch since first of the year but don't know if it's more about diet or working abs.

After hemming and hawing over it most of the morning, I got my butt up and outside to walk the hood for a few miles. Felt good to be out in the fresh air--not to shovel! I did pick up the pace to jog a bit at the end and became very aware that I have not done that in awhile. Zoiks.

For me I've found that cutting down on my ab work (not out!) and increasing my cardio work, along with diet, has really made an impact on belly fat. Today was push ups, pull ups, and bar dips with 45 minutes of walkiing - jogging the track with my wife. Not a very intense workout, but the conversation was great!

No weight work yesterday. Went to the track and jogged a half mile, then a series of 200's, then 100's at three quarter speed. Finished with another half mile jog for a total of five miles. Thank goodness today is a rest day. I'm sore!

Here's something to chew on . . .

As you begin to work out after a long hiatus your body begins to condition itself to support the weight you are at. If you are like me, a relatively large person, carrying a lot of weight (240-250), certain muscle groups, like your thighs and back are the first to become larger. My observations with my own body show that as you work in to varying routines these muscles will change development a second time, as other muscle groups begin to compensate and do the work they are supposed to. All of these changes will make your weight fluctuate and your body look and feel different as you progress.

Don't give up!

Way to mix it up folks! 'm getting some ideas reading through this forum.

One of my favorite things to do at Wanee is to go on a morning run. I take in so much of the beautiful Spirit of Suwanee park grounds and early morning scene that way.

I just did a relatively easy 10K on Saturday morning. I'm now within 17 seconds of my PR that I set 25 years ago at the end of my junior year of High School. I wouldn't have believed that I could get back in this range a few years ago.

As for the Perfect Pushups, just check out youtube. There is an annoying instructor on their videos but don't let him deter you.

Good points here Brian! I am still dealing with this.. My losses flucuate weekly. A little less then they did in the beginning ( I was all over the place then.. -10, -1, flat, etc)
Last week I was -5.2 Week before -2, week before that "flat"..
As long as your negative are more then the positives, its all good! It took me a long time to accept that. Its all about a positve mindset.

As for me-170 down, 110 to go

Dude, that's awesome. I'm going to spend more time doing running and cardio for a little while, less weights, just to mix it up. I'm going for a 3 mile run with some major hills this afternoon.

Chuck, your motivation and inner strength are very inspiring. You are part of my daily meditation as I struggle to meet the military's fitness and body standards. Don't ever give up! You are the f'ng man!

Chuck, I have never seen these before. But these look great.

Here are my fitness expectations

1.5 miles in less than 12:32; this is the part I am sweating the most.
38 sit ups in 60 seconds; not a problem
29 pushups in 60 seconds; not a problem
Sit and Reach 17 inches past your toes (or more); I am usually at 27 inches
Vertical Jump- raise your hand against the wall and it is marked; jump and reach 24 inches past the point where your hand is marked. This is very hard. The exercise to do to increase your vertical jump is to do burpees ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_Dq_NCzj8M ).

I may try to incorporate those army workouts instead. They look much more comprehensive.

So I found out today that I could swim 450 yards in less than twelve minutes instead of the 1.5 mile run in 12:32. I did the swim (nine laps in a fifty yard pool) in 10:23, 32 push ups in less than sixty seconds and 42 sit ups in less than sixty seconds. So that is passing.

Tomorrow I am going to do it again just to see where I am at with the mile and a half run and do the sit ups and push ups again too.

For some reason they are not doing the sit and reach and vertical jump for the PT assessment. The actual test is next month.

Anyway, just thought I would share. I am pretty pleased with my results so far.
