Welcome, Chris! Doesn't seem like a terribly active (in terms of board posts) team, but what the hey, it fits what I do, too.
You've done very well in those first couple of weeks. Here's to being in it for the long haul and NO EXCUSES!
I'm in my second year of maintenance, having dropped from my lifetime high of 225.5 to my current about 120. I didn't succeed permanently the first time I dropped some weight, it has taken several tries. Sometimes I would seem to "give up" for stretches that lasted multiple years and involved regaining a lot of the pounds. I hope I've got it gone for good now. That means a committment to keeping good habits for the rest of my life!
Defeat is temporary: giving up makes it permanent! Never give up!
Max lifetime weight 224.5
Maintaining with 122 marked as "goal" since October 2010
I've decided to get my life back on track. A little Bio: Age: 25, No Kids, Data Control Clerk (IT) Goal is to slowly make my way up the corporate ladder to a position in Data Security.
Max Started Weight: (July 3rd 2012) 368 Current Weight: 353 Goal Weight: 250
Roughly 2 weeks in and 15 pounds lighter (VERY NICE FEELING) My average workout days are 5 days a week: (Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri, Sat) 45 Minutes on Treadmill 45 Minutes on Crosstrainer 3 sets of 90pd Triceps Extension 2 set of 75pd Biceps Curl 2 Sets of 230pd Seated Leg Press
5 Days a week was a major start out - Since I work late, going to Work out World does not give me an excuse to miss a day (Open 24 Hours). I'll be sure to keep up to date on this and keep logging those numbers!
