    Hey you Loser,

    You are back on track!!!! Woo Hoo!!!!!!!!!! Love the quotes !!! I can picture Yoda saying that and loved the other quote. I can definitely see weight loss in it.

    Keep on going. On our next trip to Germany we are planning on buying a used Eliptical from the website where all the military people sell the stuff they can't take to the next posting due to their weight limit. WE could possible get one for 50$ I am excited since that is my favorite maching. We hope to get a treadmill the same way eventually.

    Have a losing day.

    Bill,

    Another post from my favorite blogger. He always inspires me.


    Weighing in on day 808 and some pictures:

    Friday, March 19, 2010

    The virtual week is over and time to get on that scale has come, its been a not so fun week as I have been under the weather again all week and no gym for me so a sad panda for sure. Last week showed no movement in the right direction and I was up by a pound but this week we have a new low weight and a 5.4 pound drop today. The scale said 311.0 pounds on the nose which means that I have lost 41.76% of my total weight to date which is a whopping 223 pounds and I am not even close to done yet! My original goal was to get down to 275 pounds and I am now 36 pounds from that goal and just saying that feels awesomely incredible to me because I was once staring down the barrel of having to lose 259 pounds to get there so that thirty six left feels very attainable. Lets get to some images of things that weigh as much as I do and as much as I have lost, this is my favorite part of a Friday post because it means a loss!


    This Durbahn Ducati 999 V2 comes in at 311 pounds just like someone that I know.


    This 1979 Suzuki RM250 weighs in at 223 pounds which is what I have lost to date.


    MMA fighter Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic comes in at 223 pounds as well, imagine having to carry that fellow around on your shoulders all day!

    Making good choices most of the time has gotten me where I am down this road and I say most of the time because I do this with the idea of everything in moderation without limiting myself from anything completely. There is a natural progression to eat more lean meats, veggies, fruits etc with my process as I rarely eat cloned red meat or pork and I tend to lean towards fish more than anything but it was chicken last year. The longer that I do this the more I am seeing a progression towards that cleaner eating and its just kind of happening more than something that I am consciously doing. I still enjoy an occasional slice of bacon pizza or a nice New York strip steak with a loaded baked potato, the difference is the frequency of meals like that.

    It use to be the reverse of what it is now, I would have pizza, steaks, HUGE plates of food very often and a random salad with 3/4 of a bottle of dressing would serve as my high and holy meal that helped me justify the way that I was eating. I don't think that I will ever give up bacon and onion pizza or a perfectly cooked steak entirely, instead I treat them as, well, treats. I do things like say that on holidays I don't count my calories which doesn't mean that I strap on a feed bag it just means that I am going to enjoy the time with my family instead of worrying about being that pain in the ass with the scale on those occasions. If I go out to dinner with my wife I don't really worry all that much about the calories, I do make the best choices available and I do try and look up the nutritional information if I can but I don't obsess like I do in daily life, its not every day that I get to have a night out with the love of my life and when that happens I want to worry about her. I feel that moderation is the key to a successful weight loss program and hopping off of the road for a big plate of your favorite whatever every now and again will not sabotage the entire day, week, month or year.

    I am obviously happy with the results on the scale this week and think that its insane that I am only 36 pounds from my first major goal weight of 275 pounds. Still being sick has me slightly concerned that the weight will jump up slightly this week as I get back to my regularly scheduled program and start back at the gym but that's to be found out I suppose and perhaps I will need to change my calories around a bit in the coming weeks, but those thoughts are for another post because right now I am just enjoying today's results.

    Today's broadcast has come to an end, keep on keepin on because that's all I got for now.

    As Ever

    Dear Bill,

    Great Job on eating at the Chowder house and eating salad and one roll. Wow, I'm not sure I could have done that. You got me on the 6 rolls, I went Ahh!!! and then read on and smiled. There can be so much fluctuation on the scale from water weight don't be too concerned about that. You will get there. Remember how your clothes fit now. When you get to 50 you must put the Lost 50 pounds on Spark thingy on your page.

    My page is on private, however that means anyone who I have added as a friend can read comments on my page and read my blogs if they sign up for them. NOt too many people visit my page however since I am not that active socially on Spark. I want to be I just don't have time. I try to be somewhat because it helps and encourages me. Everyone of my friends are Christians except one lady. If you send me Spark mail that is totally private. SInce I am your only friend no one can read my comments to you on your Spark page or your blogs.

    Keep on keeping at it. Great job walking 20 minutes at work. It's actually good to not always do the same thing, or distance or time. Your body gets used to the same thing and works more efficiently and you can stop losing or slow down. Doing different things kind of tricks your body.

    Keep up the good work.

    Happy St. Patricks Day!. St. Patrick was a real born again Bible believing Christian. Not too many people know this since the Catholic Church scooped him up and cannonized him but a missionary to Ireland, Bro. Daily told me the truth about St. Patrick and sent me some real true history and info about him. I lost it all somehow and regret it. But I have not problem celebrating it now since I know he was the real thing!!! It's awesome.

    Have a healthy day!!!

    Good Morning you Loser!!!!!!! How is the battle going? How is your daily time on the LG (life giver) going? I wanted to give it a positive sounding name. I forgot to tell you I could have written a lot of the blog you wrote other than your work history. All the other stuff you said I could have written.

    Walked 3 hours total on Saturday with the funerals. My back was complaining but it's my own fault for not keeping up with my core exercises so my back had to take the brunt of my core being weak. I took the last 2 days off but back on the roads today. No longer sore just a little stiff but I enjoyed all the walking.

    Let me know how you are doing when you can. I know you are doing awesome!!!

    Love,
    Margaret
