Lose It Big

From losing to living

Week 9 – 142.0 Pounds

I was totally shocked at the weigh in this morning. I guess I shouldn’t be too shocked. I can see the finish line of this competition and I know I can win. I told my wife I am all in. I said I was going to make drastic changes just to get that win. One change I made was I started Insanity along with my regular runs of 3-5 miles a day. I am one week into it and I guess it has paid off. I am at 142 pounds. That is 4.4 pounds down from last week. I cut out cheating for this last stretch. Up until this post, I would cheat by eating any of those great snacks my kids have – some jelly beans, chocolates, marshmallows, etc. I could list more. I wouldn’t eat much but, I wouldn’t stop myself from stealing a bite or five. I still think the scales might be a bit touchy.

Changes last week:
1. Insanity
2. No Cheating

Official – 142.0 lbs
Home (naked) – 139.0 lbs

I have a few more changes for next week. Hopefully, the number still goes down. I hope I don’t resort to cutting off limbs. I wonder what a pinky weighs.

I got a late jump taking these pictures. I took them after dinner tonight instead of right after work.

    Awesome, well done! You’re getting some good definition, particularly on your upper arms and abs. Keep it up. 🙂
