Pre weigh in thoughts

Thursday, March 04, 2010


This week has gone by in a blur and other than following my calories I haven't done anything "health" related besides try to sleep as much as I can which didn't go over too well in itself. To stay on track I will need to see a 3.8 pound drop on the scale tomorrow in order to keep the April 2nd goal on schedule and with this week of no gym, no exercise and being sick I am not sure that number will be hit. If I get to 316lbs by the morning that will leave me with a 4 pound per week goal until the 2nd and I believe that number will still be an achievable number for me to make that 300 pound by April 2nd goal but man that's 4 pounds per week!

To say that I want to get back to the gym would be the understatement of the year, I am missing it something awful but a cough has kept me away. Today I may try to get there if only for a ride on the bike to see how things go and who knows it may help me along with kicking this thing. The weather has been beautiful between the snow and rain so I may just take a nice walk around the lake after I drop my daughter off at school this afternoon instead as it is suppose to hit 50 today and I haven't been around the lake since late fall. Perhaps a walk would be best so that I can give my new hiking shoes a try so two birds and all that.

I am over all feeling like I am still on track for hitting that 300 pound mark by the 2nd and if I don't make it its no big deal but if I do hit it I have a feeling that I am going to be more than happy and motivated won't begin to describe what happens next. I am right now lighter than I have ever been as an adult and when I get below 300 pounds I will be lighter than I have ever been as a teenager so when I say new waters I mean new waters! The last time I was sub 300 pounds I was 12 years old, now my son is 11 years old and thinking about that at his age I was creeping up on 300 pounds is truly as amazing as it is sad. When he turns 12 years old this year I will weigh less than I did when I was his age and it had not dawned on me until this very second that I typed it out knowing my son and who he is and how he does things just how limited I must have been at that age.

Tomorrow morning will be another notch cut into my weight loss walking stick and I will weigh less than I did last week and that's the point of this so as long as its less I am happy. I do wish that I could have done more this week in the way of exercise but it is what it is and the scale will have the last word in the AM so no need worrying about what could have been. I am pretty certain that I will have a new low weight tomorrow I just really don't know where it will end up, I do hope it ends up closer to that 3.8lbs that I need to stay on track but even if its a pound I will be happy as I really didn't do anything past eat within my calories and make sure that I drank enough this week.

Until tomorrow I bid you farewell and remember who makes the decisions where your health and intake are the subject, we are all individually responsible for what we choose or do not choose to eat and how much we exercise.

    Yes a walk outside will do you some good. To be honest, I hate it when sick people go to the gym. And it could be b/c I am bombarded with germs all the time traveling on the subway to and from work. So the whole idea of someone coughing while I am trying to get my workout in is not cool. So dress warm, take a walk, and drink soup with lots of heat. That always helps me.

I've done my sentence, but committed no crime.

Wednesday, March 03, 2010


My how time flies when you are having fun! I have had the most god awful cold thanks to my loving daughter and her straight to the face cough last week, or was it Wify with her kiss good bye, either way its been fun. I have missed the gym for about a week now and nothing in the way of exercise has been had by me unless you count the random driveway shovelings last week but I have been flawless with my calories so at least I have that. Because I have a cold is no reason for me to abandon my plan right? I mean I still have to aim for 300 pounds by April 2nd and just in general I want the weight to come off so onward and downward we go.



The plan was to try and hit 315 pounds come Friday which would be a four pound drop from last week but with this cold I was unsure that it would be a possibility, that is until I took a peek at the scale this morning. I won't say what that number was just yet but it was down from Friday and I was expecting an up for sure so I am in a pretty good mood this morning because of that and the fact that the sore throat part of my cold equation is absent. It is only Wednesday but that's like two and a half days until Friday so I may just make it to the gym this week after all at least for one day? depending on how I feel tomorrow morning that is.

Making my way down the road towards that coveted 300 pound mark that once upon a time was so far away I am starting to get excited by the thought of my weight not having a three as the front number. This seems so trivial to me on some level but all at the same time is not even close to trivial to the guy that was once sportin' a five at the front of his weight. To be under 300 pounds is going to be HUGE for me, the last time there was anything lower than a three as my front number I was not even a teenager! "Its only a number and I don't get tied up with the numbers" taking a line from my Grandfather I say to that "Awe horse puckey!" anyone that's lost weight or is losing weight depends on those numbers to let them know that progress is being made so though there ARE other ways to measure progress that number holds much weight.



I picture the morning that the scale reads below 300 pounds to go something like this, I wake up and walk into the living room where my scale currently resides and I look down at its cold lifeless black surface and tap it to get the 00.0 to show on the display. Warm feet contact cold scale as the numbers scroll through from 00.0 to 299.0 and instead of continuing into the 300's a dead stop and then the soft piano music from Freddy's fingers and "We are the champions" plays from out of nowhere. Half way through Mr. Mercurys song Survivor interrupts with "Eye of the tiger" as I slip into my best Stallone impression I yell "Yo Adrian I did it!" while shadow boxing in my Superman boxers in the middle of the living room floor. When the music from nowhere stops, Wify and kids stop laughing and I gain some of my composure back I will make myself some breakfast and business as usual shall resume because I will still have a long road in front of me but the road that is behind me will be longer and I bet it smells a lot like Napalm in my house for a while because that day Victory will be mine.

This trip to being half of the man I once was has been extremely eye opening and very informative to me on many levels, I have finally learned that food is fuel and nothing more and that movement is something that is needed to be healthy and happy. Letting myself get to 534 pounds was something perhaps not entirely in my hands because of a back injury but I did do my part in packing it on thick with the late night food stops at every fast food joint around and I make no excuses for myself with that statement. Just as I was responsible for getting to that 500 plus pound state I will be the one responsible for taking it off and honestly this is an issue that I have had since I was a child as I weigh less now than when I was a Freshman in high school. As my weight comes down and I get healthier I am realizing all of the things that I must have missed out on because of my weight and I am done missing out.

The 200's are right around the corner and I am looking forward to the day.

That's all I got for today.

  Well today you made me cry, when you mentioned all that you have missed because of the added pounds. Please note that you are doing this while you are still young enough to enjoy the rest of your life and that your daughter will have her daddy to walk her down the aisle, when the time comes. How very proud your family must be. Keep up the great job. Your determination makes it much easier for the rest of us not to make excuses and not to go on binges, makes my next 50 pounds seem not quite so insurmountable. THANK YOU!!!!!

Day 787 and a new low weight.

Friday, February 26, 2010

Out of bed I stepped and straight to the scale I went, of course I was looking for 319 or lower to flash across the display but before I go there let me say that last night was maybe one of the worse nights I have had in a while because of the rain and a potential flood in our basement paired with me being sick right now! I won't get too much into it because this is after all a weight loss/health blog but wify and myself took turns every hour and a half going down stairs checking and clearing the drains and sump to make sure that we didn't end up needing to build a boat to get around the basement so to say that I feel like crap this morning is an understatement. Where was I? oh that's right, its a weigh in day and I busted ass all week until I got sick and I was looking for the three teens on the scale.

I stepped onto her cold black platform and I could see in her eyes that she was thinking that after the night I just had that I needed to see something good on that display and the first number that flashed was 319.0 lbs oh my! I did it? of course I check three times on weigh in day so off I stepped and the second time on it said 319.4 lbs and finally the third time 319.0 lbs once again and with that I dropped 5.4 pounds this week and I am 3 whole pounds lower than my lowest recorded weight to date. I have since January 2008 lost 40.26% of my total body weight or 215 pounds and am within 44 pounds of my original goal weight of 275lbs, that's kind of exciting! I will say though that I am a bit worried that its only a temporary number because I am sick right now and our bodies do some funky stuff when we aren't feeling good but we shall see. Lets get to the photos of the things that weigh the same as me and as what I have lost, I am so happy to be putting images back up here as its been a couple of weeks!


This Goose 350 weighs in at 319 pounds like yours truly

My plan for this week is to hit the gym as hard as I was before I got this terrible cold and sore throat and I will be looking for a good sized drop in weight again come next Friday. I have been meticulously recording my calories and not going over budget all week and apparently its paid off with this weeks weigh in. I have forty four pounds to go to hit my original goal weight and honestly that feels somewhat surreal to me because its been so long since I started down this road and when you are looking at 275 pounds from the back row of 534 thems is what ya might call nose bleed seats people! I have worked my way down the stadium stairs and am looking at the stage from the floor at this point and I gotta say I like the view.

This is copied from my "Day 1" post.

"Hi there, this will mark the start of something that I expect not to be an easy road traveled, I am your average every day fellow in every respect besides the fact that I weigh twice as much as your average construction worker, that may be pushing it but I believe it to be close.

I decided that I would blog about it to give me a sort of record as to how it is going and to give me something to look back at when I succeed or fail at this attempt. I will try and update this blog daily with my food intake and how I felt on that particular day along with any exercise that was done."

From 534 pounds to currently 319 pounds in just over 2 years and its been an experience for sure, I have learned more about health and exercise in these last 2 years than I would have expected. I can still remember day one, waking up and walking into the living room and being greeted by wify and my normal GIANT cup of coffee with enough sugar in it that the spoon could stand up on its own and I look back and read the above paragraphs and "when I succeed or fail at this attempt" stands out now more than ever. That paragraph has carried me through this process more than one time when I clicked that "Day 1" post and reread that line and decided every time that I would not fail this attempt.

5.4 pounds lost this week, 3 pounds under my all time low weight, and 44 pounds away from my original goal I can still look back at every post that I wrote and remember how I felt as I typed the words out. I still have a ways to go but looking at it from 44 pounds away seems less daunting and there is no doubt in my mind that I will get there and beyond as my goals have changed since day one. After 275 pounds is realized I am going to aim for another 25 pounds and shoot for 250 pounds as I think that weight will be close to what I should ultimately weigh and who knows? perhaps I will adjust the goal down from there when I get it. My brother stands 6'4'' tall and is about 220 pounds and much smaller than me frame wise and looks like a bean pole at 220 pounds so I do think that I can weigh more than that and look half way decent.

My weigh in saved my mood from the night of getting up every few hours tending to a potential problem and I want to say to anyone out there reading this who is starting out 100, 200 or even 300 pounds over weight that you CAN do this if you want to. No surgeries, no pills, no meals in a box and no paying someone else to tell you what to eat! A lot of planning, a lot of counting and weighing food and being a pain in the ass when eating at other peoples houses, lots of exercise and discipline but its all worth the end result when looking back at a former life at 500 plus pounds.

Thats all I got for today.

Salsa Tilapia recipe and pre weigh in thoughts.

Thursday, February 25, 2010


Making my way through my week and here it is Thursday already, that of course means that tomorrow is a weigh in day and I am really hoping for a new low weight this time around. I had been to the gym 9 days in a row on my quest for the three teens and then on Monday night it happened, my daughter who has a bad cold couldn't hold back any more and gave Dada a nose kiss and bamn! Tuesday morning sick. I went to the gym Tuesday anyways as it was just the beginning but yesterday there was no way I was making it out to the gym, instead a trip to the doc for my daughter and by last night I was achy and went to bed way early and was unable to complete the yoga routine that I have been doing with Wify in the evenings. This morning I feel terrible and don't see a trip to the gym in my near future for today as my daughter will not be going to school again anyways so my workouts in the early part of the week will have to carry me through until tomorrow mornings date with the scale.

I know that I am lower than last Fridays weight but I am unsure if I will hit those teens this time around but I figure if I eat perfectly clean today and try that yoga routine again tonight that maybe just maybe I can hit 319 tomorrow. I am not looking at this as even a bump in the road, people get sick and there is always next week if I don't get there this week but man I was seriously looking for high mid teens this week. Something happened to me and I have become motivated beyond where I have been the last couple months and I want that sub 300 pounds really bad, the way I see it is that if I am sub 300 pounds I am only 25 pounds from my goal and there is something about being so close that gets me in a mood to just get er done already.


Salsa Tilapia with seasoned rice and corn, 490 calories.

Enough about the weigh in, I made a new Tilapia recipe last night and everyone seemed to like it a lot and I think that I will add it to my bag of tricks because frankly I am starting to lose my love for Tilapia but this spiced it up a little different. I haven't done a recipe in a while so I thought this one would be a good one to post up, I found it by searching around on the net but I did make a few changes to it to lighten it up so that each 3oz fillet cost roughly 105 calories each salsa topping included.

What you will need.

1 to 1.5 pounds of Tilapia fillets
1/4 cup Parmesean cheese
1/3 cup Salsa
1 T light mayonaise
Black pepper
Adobo spices
Non stick cooking spray

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and put the salsa, Parm cheese and mayo into a bowl and mix it up, shake some black pepper into the mixture and set it aside.

Rinse off your tilapia fillets and place them into a baking dish that has a bit of non stick cooking spray in it and shake some adobo and black pepper to taste onto the fillets. Once that is done spoon equal amounts of the salsa mixture onto each fillet to coat them evenly and into the oven for about 20 minutes and thats it!

We had 8 fillets all about equal size and the bag was a 1.5 pound bag of fish so I figured each fillet was roughly 3oz or 75 calories and after adding all of the ingredients in the salsa topping and dividing by 8 we came up with 30 calories per serving of the topping for 105 calories per cooked fillet. I made seasoned white rice and corn with this meal and the plate in the image is 490 calories total and it was more than enough for me to feel full. The changes that I made to the recipe I found online is I used half of the mayo that it called for as well as I used light mayo and the recipe called for 1/4 cup of salsa, I used 1/3 cup so that the volume would be the same because of the lack of mayo in mine. I also seasoned the fish with black pepper and adobo spices because it didn't make sense to me to not season the raw fish, there's nothing like under seasoned fish to ruin a good plate of food for me. The only thing that I would change about the recipe is the next time I make it I will stick it under the broiler for a quick minute to brown the top a bit more, otherwise it was pretty good.

All around this week has been good in lieu of me getting this wonderful cold from my beautiful daughter and I have a good feeling that I will have a new low weight come the morning. I am not happy about having missed the gym yesterday and the fact that I will very likely miss it today but hey! what can I do. I hope that if you try this Tilapia recipe that you enjoy it as much as my wife did and make sure that you check in tomorrow to see what I have lost this week, hopefully there will be some pictures posted of items weighing the same as me and what I have lost and if not? then there is always next week. I have a cup of hot tea with honey calling to me from the kitchen so that's all I got for today, as always thanks for following along and thanks for all of the support it is always appreciated.

As Ever

Fat guy meets yoga oh my!

Tuesday, February 23, 2010


This week I feel so focused that even the fact that I am right now as I type this sick with an itchy throat and all groggy feeling I am looking forward to my trip to the gym later. Today will be nine days in a row with no break from the gym and I did some yoga last night with wify right before bed and I have to admit that the yoga took more work than I had anticipated. I was totally relaxed after the yoga workout which lasted 20 minutes and my muscles felt loose so I may add this to my evenings tasks as wify does this every night anyways. Sara Ivanhoe is the woman on the yoga routine that we did and her voice is distractingly sexy as the backdrop of her silhouetted figure sits on a dock slowly describing the movements while there is a chant in the back ground that sounds not unlike Darius Rucker, as I said its quite relaxing and I do think I will be adding this to my evenings.



My goal for this week is to get a new low weight, if I can get out of the 320's while doing that I will be more than happy with myself. Something was brought to my attention by my loving wife and that is that my weight loss has slowed down at roughly the same time that I started lifting weights more seriously so I am beginning to think that I will have to slack off of the weights a bit to get the chub coming off faster again. This makes me a sad sad boy because I am starting to see gains with the weights, For example when I started off lifting more seriously again I was warming up with 50 pounds on a preacher curl and then working out with 70 pounds and it was a challenge. I am now warming up with 70 pounds and working out with 90 pounds flirting with 95 pounds on my middle set so definite progress is there but I am still above 300 pounds and I think that taking weight off should be priority one right now so I may lighten up on the weights for a while and see what I get but since I am really enjoying the way my arms are starting to look we shall see what happens.

I am very exercise driven as of late and that can't be a bad thing, I don't think anyways! I look forward to getting my cardio in for the day and I crave the feeling that I get after a good solid workout. Not so long ago, just about 784 days ago now the cravings were for cake, cookies, greasy fast food and bacon pizzas and if you would have told me that I would some day honestly crave exercise and that feeling afterward I would have called you crazy and laughed in your face. I swear that if you do something for long enough it becomes second nature and does not feel like work like it did in the beginning, for me a once 534 pound guy to look forward to working out each day like a kid at Christmas and to be doing yoga poses?! I say anyone can get to this point if the time is put in.

My regimen is simple, eat less, move more, stay hydrated, sleep 8 hours per night and essentially that's all I am doing! no surgery, no miracle pills, no super funky sports drinks and no one elses plan to follow. It's not a miracle, and its not amazing, I am just doing what I need to do if I want to stay on this planet a little longer while being able to do everything that I want to.

From five hundred thirty four pounds to three hundre....wait right there! that number will have to wait until Friday! and seven hundred eighty four days later I am a changed person mentally as well as physically. I will get to my goal and I will be healthier than I have ever been in my life so pull up a chair and a plate full of baby carrots and watch me as I get there.

That's all I got for today.

Fini

    I'm pirating a thought from someone else on SP that has been my inspiration this week. "I LOVE the feel of strength and muscle...it's very sexy." Well I did change one word (pretty to sexy) but a female originated the thought. She started heavy and is now competing in weight lifting and looks so good.

Now that you've changed weight brackets (from emergency need to new lifestyle) maybe adjusting the goal to doing what makes you feel the healthiest could be in order? Oh ya...after your April goal..I'm new to your blogs and can see why you wouldn't want to adjust that one.

You're the boss and coach of yourself...do what's best for your health. Everyone here will support you in that!!

Just be sure to maintain the "simple" routine you quoted.

Weight lifting has many emotional and fat burning benefits. Here's to your great blogs and your reaching your goal and being strong, below 300 lbs. and healthy in 2011!

    I found that my weight actualy went up after a couple of weeks of weight training and exercise. At least that is what I like to attribute it to. Just remeber muscel burns more calories. and is more massive, than fat. Don't knock off to much just a little take a day or two off to heal after a workout, and the weight will continue to come off. Good luck

    Hey, ya know...with all that focus on weights and strength training you could be losing SERIOUS inches in your measurements...! There's a HUGE difference between maintaining BOTH weight and inches and maintaining weight but SHRINKING those inches...!

Perhaps you ARE paying attention to the inches, but if not you could be missing out on one HECK of a reward for yourself!

Nothing wrong with mixing it up now and then...kudos to the yoga! I've heard so many great things about it and it's sorta kicking around the back burner, just haven't been able to jump in just yet.

Keep that locomotive cranking! Woo Hoo! :-)

BOTZZZ 2/23/2010 2:46PM

    Wow! first and always foremost thanks for all of the support and advice! BUT and there is always a but right? ;)

I AM NOT stopping the weight lifting! what I said is that "slack off of the weights a bit to get the chub coming off faster again" I have ALWAYS lifted weights or done calisthenics along my weight loss journey ALWAYS and I do understand the importance of it and will NEVER stop unless injury dictates so.

I did say "same time that I started lifting weights more seriously" I kicked the weight lifting into high gear recently and stopped worrying about the weight loss as much and all I am doing is switching it back around so that my MAIN focus is weight loss and not gaining mass. this DOES NOT mean that I am stopping with weight training it just means that I am focusing majorly on fat loss again instead.

The bulking up is still a priority and is a MAJOR priority for me BUT the fact remains that I am still over 300 pounds and that needs to change ;) trust me I lift weights at least 3 times per week and a lot of times its more than that and this has been for almost the entire time I have been losing the weight and when I am at goal will be every day more than likely. I am gaining muscle mass, I can see it in the mirror and when a 300 plus pound guy can flex through his skin and fat and the definition shows through its gotta mean there is a decent amount of mass underneath the jiggly stuff ;)

I got 3 emails and a spark mail telling me/asking me why to not stop with the weights, I ain't stoppin any time soon ;) its just going to be number 2 on my list of things to do while dropping the weight shifts back to first place.

    I would keep to the weights and extend more like with your yoga. These are a good combination which keeps a solid core and flexibility. But, you do what your body tells you to do. If you miss adding weights,your body will tell you. You can pause the level right here and keep the flexibility side too.

    The women say DON'T STOP with the weights because we are (slowly) learning it is not about the scale and it IS about being healthy. The more muscle you have, the more fat you burn. Slow and steady wins the race...and keeps you in the right frame of mind. If you like it, you'll do it which is also a huge win. So, DON'T STOP! emoticon

I love Yoga myself and notice a huge difference when I don't do it. I really miss it when I don't do it :(

    You have gotten some great advice. I think it would be wise to keep the strength training where it is. Muscle increases metabolism and helps burn fat. Just work on the weight that you already use and go for more reps instead of increasing the weight. You are doing amazing! Keep it up!

    Wouldn't it be better for you to avoid the gym when you're sick? Probably others don't do the same for you, but I'm just sayin'... Hubby and I joined a gym this month and we stayed home when we were sick last week. Just seems the best thing to do.

Good with the yoga! I've been practicing yoga off and on and I love it! Right now, my yoga practice is off, but once my right shoulder feels better again, I'll get back to it. So many men think yoga is feminine and not for them, but there are so many benefits to yoga, I think it should be part of Phys Ed in school.

    hmmmmm EB's opinion is don't slow down on the weights. From my own experience, when I was losing weight I was balancing weight lifting and cardio. I was only doing 45min - 60min of cardio max. Keep lifting, I really do think it would do you no good to slow down. Also from what I have seen in my boyfriend. No matter what he does, he doesn't stop lifting. He does about 60min of cardio (he maintained, but now he wants to drop a few more pounds) and he lifts seriously 5 days per week and last month he dropped 10 pounds which isn't bad. I am not a man or an expert, but I think you should work on tweaking your formula. Also if you are taking a protein shake, nix it. Get your protein the natural way. I know you watch your food, but it doesn't hurt to take a closer look at that. Make sure you are not getting too much carbs and all that stuff. I tend to eat a lot of carbs from fruits and veggies sometimes, so then I will lay off the rice, whole wheat bread and stuff. Also a trick my boyfriend does, for dinner he eats just protein and veggies sometimes (I have started this too a few days a week). And it does help and you will stiff feel food. Enough of me - before I start rambling lol

    You don't need to give up on the strength training. Remember, your body will get used to anything so rather than dropping the weights, try just maintaining for a longer period. Stop increasing the weight and just increase the reps as it gets easier. It'll become more aerobic that way and should increase the calorie burn. That way you don't lose ground and eventually your body won't respond by retaining water, etc, and the scale will move again.

I've taken yoga classes off and on for several years now and love the mind-body connection and balance that I get from it. If it means I have to keep shifting chunks of flesh out of my way to do forward bends, etc, I'll do it. And I highly recommend anyone else to give it a try. Yoga is a great equalizer. Few people are able to be all things: balanced, strong, & flexible. So there's no reason to be intimidated. Even the grest yogis of our day are students as well.

At over 260 lbs and barely over 5'4" I will still attempt the occasional shoulder stand. I love yoga and that particular pose makes me feel strong, so long as the rolls fall to either side of my face, as opposed to smack dab in the middle, which prevents me from breathing. If I can give it a go, just about anyone can.

I understand where you are coming from, but in the slightly long term view of things, lifting weights means more muscle means you burn more all the time. So I dunno, but hello, just awesome in general! But you knew that!
