So I bought the Audio CD of "Body for Life" after Med mentioned it earlier and I like what he has to say. I'm gonna give it a shot. But I'm too cheap to buy the Myoplex he was talking about so I'm using Slim-Fast shakes for the in-between meals.

Anyone else have any success with "Body for Life"?

How's your training going STG?

I just rode 12 miles ... ... the way back sucked...riding against a really nasty wind. It took me 45 minutes to get to Starbucks and an hour to get back! Oh well...time to run errands and finish the garden!

12 miles? Good job Sass! Damn, you'll do anything for Starbucks wont ya?

I started hitting the treadmill again. Did a half hr. on friday and had to stop when my surgically repaired ankle started getting sore. I hope to eventually get it up to an hr 3 times a week. Monday, wed. and fri.

Down to 210, just in time (exactly 210 days). That's the -45 lb mark!

It would be nice if I could get under 200 by summer's end, but I'll be happy with anything under 205. That would be a 50 lb. drop in less than a year.

Five ten-pound sacks of potatos that I don't have to lug around anymore.

Thing is that studies show that something like 75% of the people who undergo massive weight loss put it all back on (and then some) within 5 years after losing it.

So, for me, the weight loss is only the first part of the battle. It's got to be a permanent lifestyle change, which is why you've got to find something you can live with.

I'm pretty good with the routine that I've established, and I think I can keep it up indefinitely. Doesn't really feel like I'm dieting at this point. Just eating smarter.

Exactly! That's why I hate that term 'diet'. That indicates a temporary change until you achieve the wanted effect. Then, people go back to their old lifestyle and the weight comes right back. It has to be a lifestyle change for it to last! Very good outlook, OD!!

Good job guys! I did another half hr on the treadmill yesterday. I kicked the speed up a little so I covered more distance in the same amount of time. And my ankle didn't bother me afterwards this time.

Way to go REB!!! Good job!!!

I did about 7.5 on the bike tonight...dang my butt is sore! ! Against the wind again on the way back.

My bike seat seems to be really uncomfortable compared to my old bike...am I not used to it yet or does anyone know the proper height? I'm 5'4" I bought the bike at Scheels and they have an awesome bike dept/repair shop and the guy said it was the right height when I sat on the bike.

Nice job Sass!

I'm not sure what the height should be on a bike seat. Just duct tape a couch/throw pillow on there and you'll be good to go. You'll be riding in style

Although I was very tired this morning I mad myself get on the treadmill and did 35 min's. and just over a mile. That's the most I've done so far. I might get to an hr. sooner then I thought but boy I'm bushed. I should sleep good tonight.

Ten pounds left? That's ALL?!




I am happy to announce that I am now at 307, which is -13 pounds since that hospital scale moment on March 23.

I think 2 to 2 1/2 pounds a week is realistic goal. I have 67 pounds left to lose .... so that's 30-33 weeks? Doesn't seem too long really.

Good job all. I got kind of messed up on getting started due to some career turmoil and a bout with pneumonia. I only missed a week on the Nordic Trak. I do 30 minutes every morning with it set on the highest elevation and then propped up another 4 inches with a couple of 2X4's. It is much easier on my old joints than running. I had to replace a roller, which was a 5o cent piece that cost me $50. but it is worth it. I did buy (for the price of lunch) another full machine I can use for parts next time. Now I just need to get the diet going and get back on the weight machine.

Ditto. Good job!

Sounds like you're on your way, and at some point, once you get going, it will start feeling like less of a project and more like a natural routine. The one nice thing about this is that you get some of your best results early on. The last 20 pounds or so are much harder, but by then you'll feel pretty good again.
