Today was a banner day. The final weigh in for the "Biggest Loser" competition I have been involved with. The past two weigh-ins, I had been plateau'd at 241'ish. So my PT gave me an assignment: boost my proteins and keep pushing hard on the... Read more

Can I crack 240? I was only 1.4 pounds away after my last weigh-in. Like The Little Train That Could, "I think I can, I think I can!"... Read more
6600 Meters Today!
Sunday, October 14, 2007      0 comments

Wow -- just did some calculating for my workout today. The gaol: how far could I speed walk for one hour on my local high school track (which has a cushioned surface, btw!). Result: 6600 meters, or 16.5 laps! Equating that into miles = 4.1... Read more

The past month has been great in the weight loss category, thanks in no small part to the Biggest Loser competition. Since 9/10: - Down 15 pounds - Under 250 lbs for the 1st time in who know how long (long enough that I can't remember, ... Read more
Biggest Loser Competition
Friday, September 07, 2007      1 comments

I attended the organizational meeting for my gym's "Biggest Loser Competition" last night. Organized along the same lines as the show on NBC. The competition formally begins on Monday. Exciting, but a little scary. I've never done a formal w... Read more
32 and many more to go!
Tuesday, August 21, 2007      4 comments

2 more pounds down this week! Total of 32 YTD! Yes, it feels good! The clothes are getting loose (in some cases too loose!). Energy level is very high. My goal to hit 217 by year end is very doable. Back in June when I decided to red... Read more
I got there the "right" way!

Today's weigh in was a bit of a milestone. I am at 257 for the first time since March of 2006. Even more inportant: when I reached 257 back in 2006, I was using Meridia (prescribed by my former Dr), which has all sorts of nasty side effects (... Read more

Nice to cruise into August feeling good about how I look, how I feel, and my successes in getting into better physical (and really mental) health! My wife and I went to a baseball game last night and it felt good not to squeeze into my seat (of... Read more

Well, it's off to my colonoscopy. Survived the day before. The only thing that was bad was the Trilyte -- that stuff tastes AWFUL!! I saw another blogger describe it as "dishwash water", and I think that fits it just fine. On a positiv... Read more
Revised Diet / Exercise Plan a Success (so far)
Thursday, July 05, 2007      2 comments

Tuesday, July 3 was a very good day. After a week of curtailing my calories a bit (400 calories) and pushing harder on my cardio / strength training, I have experienced success at breaking the plateau. Went from 270 to 266!!! Hopefully, t... Read more
Time for a change
Wednesday, June 27, 2007      0 comments

I have been "plateaued" at 270 for some weeks (actually months now). Lots of reasons (surgery, vacations, travel, etc), but that is all behind me. My revised plan: - Set a lower goal weight for 2007 (217). In order to hit this targe... Read more

Knee Surgery a Success!
Monday, April 16, 2007      2 comments

I had my knee surgery last Thursday (4/12), and I consider it a success! No more pain on the inside part of my knee! I'm walking around pretty good around the house (althought I'm nor ready to kneel on the knee yet -- give it some time!). Pre... Read more

I wasn't terribly surprised today when my Dr gave me the results of the MRI on my left knee -- torn meniscus on the inside part of my knee. April 12 is the surgery date, and if it goes like my right knee surgery did, I will be pretty much back ... Read more

Weigh in day -- 1.2 pound down over the past two weeks. I did not weigh in last week as I spent the long weekend before with friends and family celebrating my 50th birthday, and frankly, did not eat or exercise as well as I had been. But, in d... Read more
