40 pounds in 95 days seems reasonable but might be pushing it a bit. That's about 13 1/2 weeks. You should aim for about 2-3 pounds a week in weight loss on average (some weeks you may lose nothing and others you may lose 5). Slow weight loss is the best way to retrain your body into a comfort zone with the new weight. So, with an average of 2-3 pounds a week your weight loss would be 26-40 pounds in 95 days. Maybe make your goal more like 33 pounds in 95 days?

Keep in mind also that in order to drop one pound of fat you have to burn 3500 more calories than what you take in.

I'm at -9 at least in about 5 weeks. (Going by my scale...going by the doc's office it could be a little more...)
Mostly, I exercise more and eat a lot less carbs.
I cut out pasta and bread! Added more protein.

When I started working out again a month ago I never weighed myself. I know I have "a bit" of a beer belly but my main goal was to get my lungs and heart in better shape. Well I weighed myself this morning and I'm at 229. I looked up my Weight height index and I should be 170 so I need to lose 60 lbs. Wasn't expecting that. So I jumped back on the treadmill again today and plan on doing it 6 days a week instead of the 3 I've been doing.

Down to 203 now. Based on the whole height weight index table, I'm within eight pounds of no longer being "officially overweight."

The main thing is, REB, to just find something that works, and something you can live with and just stick with it.

Once you get some momentum going that way, then things just start taking care of themselves.

It's like the title of Joe Namath's biography:

Can't Wait to Get Up in the Morning 'Cause I Get Better Lookin' Every Day

(that might not be true for Joe Willie, anymore, but it's a nice thought anyway)

Thanks Reb...it does.
I was stupidly wearing flip flops when I rode last night...usually wear my skechers. Anyway, lightening, thunder and hail hit when I was 2 miles from home...and in the part of town I was riding in I didnt have shelter right away until I had already been riding in hail for a few blocks...OUCH! That stung.

Good luck with your non-smoking!

Thanx! I haven't quit yet. I'm working on gradually cutting down.

It's been extremely windy here today (car was shaking when I was driving and I went to get gas and about blew away!) ...but if it calms down, I'll hit the bike trail...and listen to a little Redhawk baseball while I ride...

Argh! Kind of stuck on my 7 lbs...but I don't think I've gained any.
Just been hard to ride bike with the weather and too much good food with the holiday weekend!

I added ab work to my routine today. We have this contraption called an AB Swing. I call it the sex swing . I could really start to feel it in my lower stomach after about 30 of them.

So, I start my four week intensive boot camp on Monday. I'm excited about that. This will be a first for me. I hear it's pretty intense and they push you pretty far, which is EXACTLY what I need.

Dropped 5 this week...I think it's due to stress, though. Not eating right, much, hardly at all. Ok, not good. No wonder I'm struggling in my runs. Got to get my head screwed back on straight. Needless to say, I'm not proudly saying I dropped 5 in less than a week. But, it'd be nice if it stayed off!

FIVE?! You told me that was too much in one week!

What kind of boot camp ... to get ready for your cruise? I know there's plenty of food on those things, so be prepared. Running seems like such high impact though ...

Eight more pounds? I thought 205 was the magic number ... you say 203 and I'm thinking it's time for a guilt-free KFC or T-Bone steak.
Eight more? When does it end, OD?! A stiff wind might cause you trouble soon ...




Serious, congrats - you are a shining example.

Thanks.

I didn't think I'd break the 205 barrier quite this fast. (I'm actually at 202 right now.) I don't feel much urgency at this point, and I already have "cheated" with a big dinner here or there, but my daily routine has turned into more or less of a habit. There's no reason to change it, so I'm just going to stay with it and see what happens. The rate of weight loss should slow down from here on out anyway.

I'll be rooting for the rest of you folks!

Ok, it's now official. There is no backing out, now! Just registered for my race...three weeks from Saturday! Ugh, now I'm all nervous. And, I've run this race before. So, if anyone is in the neighborhood on the 23rd of June and wants to come cheer me on, I'll need all the cheers anywhere from mile 9 through 12! That's the hardest portion. That's where the sun begins to beat down on you and you feel like you are about to just roll over and die!

Wow STG.. you truly are an inspiration. All of you are. OD with all your weight loss, Sassy with your biking 11 miles, STG with your boot camps and races, and REB with your determination.. I need to get in gear! I haven't lost anything yet.. but I haven't really stuck to it either. I have cut Starbucks out of my routine, and only have it once every few weeks, if even that, and that's a good thing. I stopped drinking soda for the most part and substituted it for Vitamin Water. I don't know if that's much better since it has a lot of sugar in it, but I know it's better than soda! I bought an Ab Lounge and have been using it almost every day for a few weeks. I hope it produces results!
