Some compare pictures, a weigh in and a good drop!

Friday, February 10, 2012


Friday has come so it shall be that time to step upon the cold weight telling contraption made from glass plastic and Chinese circuitry again. This morning I did not know what to expect because I have stayed off of the scale for a few days, no reason other than the mornings have been hectic lately so it was business as usual and straight to the scale before my date with Joe. The last time that I weighed in for the blog the number was 364.8, then Evacgutpocolypse happened and I was up in weight which was odd because I had done nothing but evacuate my innards so I did not weigh in last Friday. This week I got back on task with the eating and even though I did zero exercise because of letting my back ease back into every day life the scale did show a loss, I came in at 362.6 which is of course a 2.2 pound loss and I am happy with that.


This old Triumph bike weighs 362 pounds just like I do, and I used this image in THIS POST zeusmeatball.blogspot.com/2009/01/we
ighing-in-and-its-doozy-youll-laugh.html
back in 2009 when I weighed exactly what I weigh today.


This here 97 street magic II weighs in at 172 pounds which of course is what I have lost so far, and was also used in that old post!


The plan for this week is to get back on the trainer regular like and see what I can do by next Friday, I have been sort of on a buying streak with bike stuff because of the being all laid up and taking it easy so hopefully getting some exercise into my days again will cease that behavior. I have changed a few things in the way that I am eating the last few days and am feeling good about it, hopefully the coming weeks proves that its the right move for me. Eating heavier in the afternoon and a light dinner is new to me but its what I am doing, normally and all through my weight loss I did not pay too much attention to when I ate as long as my calories were within my limits but I think that eating heavier earlier is leaving me less hungry later in the day.

Over all things are back to normal-ish since Evacgutpocolypse so getting back on track with my program should happen and hopefully it will equate to dropping numbers on the scale. I am at this point needing to drop an average of 3.84 pounds per week to make my May goal, it is higher than it was when I began down this path that will lead to 305 pounds because of getting sick and hurting my back but I still believe that it is a reachable number so I am still aiming for 305.

The weather will surely warm up and that means that I will be able to get out for more rides on the bikes which in turn hopefully mean that the pounds will drop faster as the weather gets warmer and i think it will be enough to get to my goal. If I don't make that goal date it I will push through until I surpass that number and grind right on down to 265 pounds which was my original and end game goal, now of course I won't stop trying once I get to 265 but giving my 6'4'' large frame plus any extra skin that I will have at that point? I think 265 is a good place to aim for initially.

Things are going in the right direction and I have my game face on where my health is the subject so the only thing that will get in my way is my own self....

Not gonna happen.

That's all I got for today.

As ever

    SWEET!!!! so glad the scale showed you a decrease b/c I"m sure you've earned it. I am so darned proud of you and even though I don't know you from Adam,I feel like I do.
Springier weather(we haven't really felt true winter this year) will be nice. I'm half hoping to get myself a new(er)bike this year. Mine , I'm afraid, is falling to pieces. But, I will do what I have to do. I love getting out there and just pedaling! You're lighting the fire again,too by writing about it.
Congrats! and i'm glad you're feeling better. please be careful with that back!

Evac! Evac! find the nearest exit and get out now!

Friday, February 03, 2012


This week has been how do they say? a nightmare! Last Friday my weigh in was a slight up and I was ok with that and by Sunday morning I was down 2 pounds from that number so Friday was looking like just an off day to weigh in. Then Sunday our daughter woke up with a stomach bug and threw up, one time but she was in obvious need of some lovin' so I woke up and was comforting her before my back had a chance to warm up and then add that to the fact that i was helping to set up a surprise party for a family member all afternoon and well I woke up Monday morning with a very sore back. If the back was not enough lets add the explosive evacuation of my guts, and I mean stuff was exiting from every and any place that it could find, so now I can't walk without assistance and I am heaving uncontrollably on the toilet while holding a giant bowl for what was coming out of the top end, and now that I have forced you to put down your breakfast bowl, yeah it's been like that.

The long short of it, I went to the doc for some pain meds for the back and I am standing upright once again but still tender, the evacuation of my innards has ceased but there is still rumbling within and I pretty much have not left the house in a week besides a short walk and the ride to the doc. This week has been a horror show all the way around between the baby getting the full on bug along with myself and my other daughter so there has been lots of the same for me and the girls. Wify fortunately did not get sick and my son faked for a day so that he could get some attention from Mom but I am happy that it wasn't the whole gang because this bug was freekin serious! I am glad that we are in the tail end of it.

Ok onto what the blog is about, weight loss and healthy living, my weight was down as low as 359 during this mess (the one time I checked in the middle of the week) and as high as 370 (yesterday mid day) so I have no clue where I am weight wise as I did not check this morning. I have not eaten hardly anything all week so I know that my weight is merely a result to being dehydrated, sick, swollen and on pain meds so I will not record a weight on the blog this week. This morning I am trying to get back to the program where my intake is the subject and I started it off like I would any other morning and I am hoping that my stomach will agree to these terms. Exercise will be limited until I am sure that my back can take it, the weather has been decent around here so I may try to go for a walk later in the afternoon just to test out my endurance as far as my back goes but am looking forward to getting back on the trainer as soon as possible.

My daughter is home from school today just to make sure that we don't pass this wonderful bug to any other unsuspecting humans so I will keep this post short and sweet, I will attempt to post up this weekend at some point, perhaps even both days just to get back into the swing of things.

That's all I got... well besides a sore back and a stomach bug, but you know what I mean....

Until next we meet.

As Ever

    I feel you on the back pain. Do you do any core strength exercise? It's made a world of difference for me. I've had lower back problems my entire adult life, and when I finally had x-rays and a proper diagnosis I was told my options for fixing it were to have my spine fused or increase my core strength. I opted for the strength increase. I've had major ups and downs in my weight and activity levels since getting that diagnosis, and I found that no matter how fat and lazy or fit and active I am, if I do some simple core exercises most mornings I can usually avoid major back pain. When I start getting lazy or cocky and feeling like I don't need/want the exercise anymore, I'll inevitably end up stuck on the couch for four days because I can't bend at the waist or support my own upper body weight anymore. Back pain is the worst!

Another week gone another pound ... gained?

Thursday, January 26, 2012


Tomorrow I will weigh in for the blog again, I am predicting a gain for the week which is kind of discouraging but it is what it is and since I am still trying to beat this cold or whatever it is I am not all that worried about a small gain. I was 364.0 last Friday and if I break even I will be happy because as of this morning I am up from that number by more than a pound which is a tad puzzling but at the same time, should it be? Losing weight is not a perfect thing, sometimes we lose sometimes we gain and sometimes it remains even no matter how diligent we are with our food intake or exercise. Making the right choices is how I roll these days, and I know that even with a gain I am doing what I need to do for my health, eating clean is somehow rewarding for me, knowing that I am fueling my body with the right stuff forces me to feel good, That concept keeps me going some days when I feel myself about to peek in the fridge for no reason.

I haven't ridden my trainer for a few days and this bothers me but my head is still clogged up and the first 10 minutes is literally torture because of it not to mention that 30 minutes afterwards the stuffy head is double what it was before I started. All of that sounds like an excuse to me! so after I hit publish I am setting up the trainer and going for a ride.

I don't have anything spectacular to write today other than I am feeling a tad bit discouraged because of the up while at the same time I understand these things happen. I have not worked on a bike in a while because a couple of nights ago I was installing fenders on a bikethat I was setting up for wet weather riding and I slipped trying to tighten a bolt... When I slipped a tily little washer that was in my hand somehow ended up slipping under my index finger nail and literally went in so deep that half of the washer was under my nail. The tip of my right index finger has been throbbing for two days, I am more bothered by the fact that the weekend is coming and I really wanted to do some work on the old Motobecane and I am unsure if this thumping finger will allow it.

Over all things are good, I am eating right, feeling awesome and for the most part am happy with how things are going here.

That's all I got.

As Ever
Me

    Wow, it's been about a year and a half since I read your blog and after reading this post and seeing your weight, I had to go back to 2010 to catch up on what was going on with you. I think last time I read you were about 305 or so.

I UNDERSTAND what you've gone through. I, unfortunately, have put back on 2/3's of the weight I lost, but am back at it again and this time going for it all and not stopping. I've got 2 sisters and both parents doing it with me, so it's going to be great.

I just want to encourage you to keep on - I know you can do it. I commend you for not giving up - you have come so far.

I wish you the best and look forward to seeing you complete your journey - and maintain it!

wishing you the best,

    This too shall pass...RIGHT?!

My loss back-when was a "mere" 80 pounds, but I was also seriously obese at that weight (and also tested diabetic, which disappeared with the weight loss) and I experience the same challenges and fluctuations you describe, though with less coping diligence. My age *may* account for that to a minor extent.

BTW, will you saunter over, when you have a *hot minute* (after the conference?) to give some tech info and encouragement to our friend Don?

You know I would feel the same like you, discouraged. It's like you know why you are up in weight, but it doesn't mean you have to like it. When you get 100% better, then you can go hard. As of now, you just have to do what it do!

    Could you by chance be taking any cold meds that are causing retention -- some even have sugar in them. I can't tell you how many times in my past where I was so diligent for a week or two only to stay the same and it is disappointing. Especially when I watch those shows like BL and they lose 5-20 lbs a week. Yeah I KNOW they are doing NOTHING but working out and eating right but I think it has made so many of us think that is the normal weight loss and it's not. But anyway - you're right to not let it keep you down. I think not exercising when you are sick could be the right thing to do - listen to your body. You'll catch up - but your body has enough trying to fight off a cold I would think - and hope the finger feels better soon!

    It's not a perfect scale - which you know, but there is some balance to it - your body may be holding onto the "extra" right now because you are sick and it isn't so sure about your ability to "hunt for food"... I hope you beat the cold soon and just remember you're still on track.

Nothing mind blowing just an am post for those interested.

Tuesday, January 24, 2012


Keeping my calories within range is increasingly easier as the days tick by, I am back into a groove with the intake and now its time to get the exercise back up to par. Riding on my trainer has been sketchy at best as I have had a cold for about 2 weeks, actually its two colds with a 2 day break in between them and riding the trainer is not fun with a stuffed up head so I have been passing on it lately. We got about 5 inches of snow on Sunday and we did make it out for a walk with the kids which was nice and at least it was movement vs hanging out in the house for the day and I'll take that any day of the week!



My weight is doing something odd, what I mean is that I am up in weight from Friday which I can't understand, I mean I know there is fluctuation but there is no reason for it. I am eating perfectly, exercise is lacking but that has been the case since about Christmas with me riding the trainer only a handful of times and I had been dropping since then. I am not too worried about it as I have been here before while losing weight but that doesn't make it any less frustrating to see a plus on the scale in the morning, it is what it is I suppose. Friday will let me know how I did for the week as I don;t usually dwell on the number that I se eon the scale, I try and focus on the over all results because I do have a long way to go and letting fluctuations bother me would prove a losing battle and ultimately hurt the forward momentum.

On bike related news, The hardware for the Pletscher rack that I am going to put on that Motobecane that I am working on came in the mail yesterday so I will do a test fit later tonight with the rack. I did get down stairs for about 30 minutes worth of polishing on the crankset on that bike but its far from done so I didn't take any pictures of what I did for now.

Over all everything is on track and moving right along and I can't ask for more than that, the weather will be warm soon and back out on that trail I will go...... can't wait.

That's all I got for today kids.

I cross posted this post at Two Wheels and a Fat Guy twowheelsandafatguy.blogspot.com/ for anybody interested.

I feel like once a week or so of tracking goes by it gets easier and easier. I hate when my weight is suddenly up a pound or something when I know that I did not overeat.

A good weekend was had, there was snow, working on that old bike, riding the trainer and a walk with the kiddos through said snow, all things that at my highest weight of 534 would not have been possible. Living this way now feels natural to me, my stumble with the stress and weight gain was such an off balance feeling and its not something that I noticed as much before I got my $hit back together and I believe this may be part of the reason so many people struggle with weight. I enjoy eating the meals that I make that are healthy, they taste good, are not hard to prepare and the bonus of feeling awesome because of them is well... awesome!


A shot over the barely frozen lake now covered in snow.

Last night I had my wife take a picture of me in shorts and no shirt, I did this back when I started this blog as a reference for myself to see where I was and where I have gone, it was very effective in keeping me on track. I would take 2 images per month, one on the first and one some time on the middle of the month and I have a folder with all of these images dated and photoshopped together with the image from Jan 6 2008 so that I can see my progress. I will probably never share these images with anyone but my wife which is likely a better choice so that I don't scare the population or anyone that may stumble upon the images on the net but anyone that is trying to lose weight I would recommend doing this.


The Moto's new aluminum bars all nice and shiny.

Something else I would recommend to people trying to lose weight is finding something to be passionate about that is health related, you know, like bicycles! I think that my obsession... er I mean addiction... um still not right.. hobby, yes that's it Hobby, is a huge factor in keeping me interested in healthy living because its kind of hard to blast down a rail trail when you weigh 400 pounds. Bicycles have become very interesting to me once again, more so than when I was 10 years old riding around on my Huffy Santa fe' or when I was 14 with my Schwinn Super le tour, there is something about them that just speaks to me, I like riding them, I like fixing up the old broken ones and I have too many right now! The spring can't get here soon enough so that I can get my weekend rides back on the menu and I am planning on being back down to my fighting weight by then so I have a lot to look forward to with the spring coming around again.

Over all everything is on track, I am making time for myself even to tha point that I can post pretty regularly on this blog again! I even started a more cycling related blog not too long ago and there are more details on my bike projects there so anyone interested in that sort of thing please check it out at TWO WHEELS AND A FAT GUY twowheelsandafatguy.blogspot.com/ , I would love to know that some of you followed me over there. The other blog is health/weight loss related but it is centered more on the cycling side of it because I wanted a place to post up my bike projects so that I would not bore the skin off of anyone that reads this blog for the weight loss side of it so again please check it out!

For today, that's all I got! everything is happening the way that I want it to and not by chance, I decided that beat the path into the ground where my feet will fall.

    Way to go - I'm back on track too it appears. 8 lbs off last week.

Needed that.

    There is a fine line between hobby, obsession, and mental illness. I never cared to much for lines myself...

    I like your comment about enjoying cooking healthy meals that taste good. It sounds as if you have developed a healthy perspective of food as fuel for your body. That's something I have struggled with for years.

    Great to hear of your ongoing momentum! Kudos to the courage of the pics...I struggle mightily when I see myself, whether in pics or mirrors, not to tear myself down, let alone to see aspects I can value!
