Weekly Update - 2/24/2008

February 24, 2008

Diet starting weight: 295 Week starting weight: 267 Today’s weight: 264 Week weight loss: 3 lbs Total weight lost: 31 lbs This weight loss stuff is a fickle demon.  This week I started off well on my plan, doing my cardio in the morning instead of lifting weights.  The idea was that I have a better chance [...]


John’s Weight Loss Forums

February 19, 2008

One of the resources I have not found on my weight loss journey was a good, close-knit forum. I’ve probably tried them all, and for a variety of reasons I just haven’t been able to stick to one. I really feel like I am missing out by not having that added sense of community. So, [...]


South African Braaivleis

February 18, 2008

Andrew recently wrote about his transition from “Mr. Meat” to a vegetarian, which has netted him great weight loss success. In his post he refers to South African boerewors rolls as the Food of the Gods, and I have a hard time arguing with him (despite a pretty unappetizing picture!) because I lived in SA [...]


A Time For Action

February 17, 2008

When in the darkest days of the American Revolution Thomas Paine wrote, “These are the times that try men’s souls,” he was not complaining about the conditions nor the dangers the patriots faced; he was issuing a call to action. After another 2 pound gain this week I am issuing a similar call to action, although [...]


What I Have Learned by Journaling my Eating

February 13, 2008

I have been keeping pretty close track of my caloric intake the last few days and have a few observations. You eat more than you think.  I bought a box of Special K Cinnamon Pecan cereal this weekend.  I’m not a huge cereal eater, or at least I haven’t been since I have been on [...]


Weekly Update - 2/10/2008

February 10, 2008

Diet starting weight: 295 Week starting weight: 263 Today’s weight: 265 Week weight gain: 2 lbs Total weight lost: 30 lbs Well enough procrastinating, it’s time to post the ugly numbers.  Yep, a gain. Again.  Bleh. Things I did well this week: Started the week off well lifting weights Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. 5 hours of skiing [...]


No More Rusty Dumbells

February 7, 2008

My three largest dumbells are 25, 35 and 45 pounds.  When I started this weight loss journey back in August I already had a small set of rarely used dumbells ranging in size from 5 to 25 pounds.  You will notice that the 25 pound one looks rusty.  That’s because it is.  I bought these [...]


The Skinny on V8 Fusion

February 6, 2008

  I’ve posted a couple of times this month on V8, the tasty vegetable juice.  I take mine Spicy, which is loaded with taste.  But as it turns out, it’s also loaded with salt. A number of you suggested I try V8 Fusion.  I tasted V8 Splash a few years ago and didn’t like it [...]


Help Me Understand the Target Weight Math

February 5, 2008

I’ve been thinking about my goals lately.  In particular, the end game.  If I can get off this darned plateau, what is the weight range I’m going to settle in?  At this point, based on my own history from when I was younger, I chose 185 pounds as my target weight.  That’s way out there, right [...]
