Default 2010 Weight Loss

I'm starting early this time. After gorging for a week of Thanksgiving dinners, parties, and leftover pie, I'm ready to get back to a routine. Who's with me?

Starting weight: 215 (was 201 back in May, my lowest since college).

I'm not going to focus on weight loss, as I'll be training for a few events in 2010. So far I'm registered for the Vermont Key City Marathon on 5/30 and that Warrior thing on 9/18. In my sights are a local sprint triathlon here in town mid-june and possibly the Hartford Marathon in October.

With all the running and cross-training, my main goal is to just get in better physical shape. I know that's a broad and non-specific goal (which is generally a no-no), but I've been at this long enough to know I just gotta stick to the training plans that I lay out.

Starting point: not in peak physical shape.

How's that?

Yeah, I'm trying to get somewhere else than where I've been. Perhaps I need to sign up for another 5k or a 10k to get really motivated...
Starting point: not really pointed, more kind of round and soft...

Been working on it for a while now...
  • 1st Weigh in 10/22/09 278.2
  • 2nd Weigh in 11/02/09 271.2 (7 lb loss, week and a half)
  • 3rd Weigh in 11/09/09 - 267.6 (3.6 lb loss, 10.6 Overall)
  • 4th Weigh in 11/16/09 264.8 (2.8 lb loss, 13.4 Overall)
  • 5th Weigh in 11/23/09 264.3 (0.5 lb loss, 13.9 Overall)
  • 6th Weigh in 11/30/09 - 264.2 (0.1 lb loss, 14.0 Overall)
  • 7th Weigh in 12/07/09 - 263.2 (1.0 lb loss 15 Overall)
Averaging about 2 lbs per week overall... Working hard at it and as I lose more weight I will be adding more running to my weekly routines...

I talked to my brother who's a big runner, and we agreed we'd do this local run together in the spring. It's a 5k. That's my goal, but the weight loss thing is helpful for me to keep track of.

I've been thinking about my middle lately too. I know I lost some weight int he 2009 thread, but I have no idea where I am now except that I have lost some weight and am in slightly better shape after a summer of hiking.

I just ordered a rowing machine to help work my muscles. I also have a trip to Disney coming up next month, so i need to start thinking about getting my legs in good endurance shape.

I gained a ton of weight in 2009. I just bought a new gun belt, and my beer belly is just hanging all over that sucker.

I've gotta do something.

Earlier this week I stepped on the scale and hit my target weight of 220. That's down from my heaviest ever (295 ) in early 2005. It took awhile and I had to give up beer to shed the last 20 but I did it.

Now I just have to keep it off.

Congrats! That's quite an achievement. You should be proud. <-milk.
