Lose It Big

From losing to living

Halfway There – 151.2 LBS

I am halfway done with my competition. I have just recently gotten into this blog thing. It is pretty neat to see that most of the people that are switching to a healthier lifestyle have the same bumps and bruises. I wish I would have measured more things than just weight. I think there will come point that my weight will stay the same (fingers crosses) but, other areas will continue to improve. Although I never measured my waist, I have had to move my belt holes 2 spots today. Maybe it’s because the shirt I have tucked in is thinner or maybe my belt is stretching. I am definitely one notch smaller. I started this on February 20, 2012 at 169.6 pounds. Now I am at….drum roll please….151.2 pounds. That is 18.4 pounds in 6 weeks. I think my wife hates me for it. She says it’s easy for guys to lose weight. I know I have had to work pretty hard for it and sacrificed a lot of eating out too. That’s another reason my wife hates me. We haven’t gone out like we used to. It’s not that I haven’t gone out. We used to go out Friday and Saturday nights and then possibly to a yogurt place or something like that on Sunday. To be honest she has been great and is a big supporter.

I know goals are good to have but, I never really set any up. My goal when I started was to win money by having the most percentage weight loss. I am somewhere around 10%. I think I am in 2nd place. Now, I am going to shift to making some goals. I even listed some on some comments I made on some of the blogs I read.

  1. No Alcohol – (yard work isn’t as much fun anymore)
  2. Drink Water and Green Tea
  3. No Binge Snacking (at night)
  4. Continue a Fast Day
  5. Cardio 5-7 days
  6. Strength 3 days
  7. Find a good banana protein shake

I just noticed how messy this room is. I have kids. Sometimes cleaning up toys in the basement gets pushed way down on my to do list.

    Congratulations! I am also envious.

    I do believe that your wife is right– it IS easier for men to lose weight than women (and in the right “places”). But I keep going just the same. I can’t WAIT until my scale says 151. I will freakout and snoopy dance across the bathroom floor 🙂 (I have 10lbs to go until that point).

    I was just going to say the same “it IS easier for men” comment but she beat me to it! It’s the testosterone!

    But great job keep up the good work!!!

    I agree with your wife – it is too easy for guys to lose weight! My husband decides he wants to drop a few pounds so he gives up his daily soda for a week or two, and BAM he is down a few pounds, meanwhile changing nothing else in his life style.

    *Sigh* Keep trucking dude. You got this. Your progress is PHENOMENAL, and i’m glad you found my blog so I could find your blog.

    *Big Hugs*
