After the holiday when I am off the 10 hour shifts, I am going to go all out to lose the 25 to 30 pounds I need to lose. It will involve actually doing some freaking excercize for a change. I hate the bikes, treadmills and stairclimbers but a combination of the three should allow me to not get too bored with them.

I'll agree with that. You can buy a lot of gym membershp time for the cost of one of those. And gyms offer a lot to help someone get fit and stay fit. Just being in that atmosphere does wonders for your enthusiasm to work out. And, if you are doing an excercise incorectly, or have a question on how to do an excercise, trainers are there to help.

I wished there was a gym out here within decent driving distance to join. If there were, I wouldn't be buying my own equipment.

Hang in there, here's to grilled chicken, ice water w/lemon, steamed veggies and big salads.

Tim is on vacation for a couple of weeks. Terrorizing Washington and the East Coast. This explains the return to Condition Orange.

just think of how good you will fill when you lose the weight
and the best exersise is to walk...walk...walk...so get off the compuiter and go walk;)

Still going.

The weight has increased a touch (dieting while on vacation is damn near impossible) but clearly the weight is also beginning to redistribute. I've lost at least two inches off my waistline, and perhaps more.

Today, I wore a pair of pants that fit snugly three weeks ago. Today, I was able to pull them off without unbuttoning or unzipping them, and they are most definitely too big for me to wear now. I can't remember the last time I UNDERGREW clothing.

People at work today told me that I looked noticeably thinner than I did before I left on vacation a week ago Friday.

Will hit the treadmill later.

Seriously though there is nothing like going down in pants size unless your Sure Oz!
I went from a 36 to a 32. Gave all my size 36 pants to a friend who was also losing weight. Now I refuse to go and buy bigger pants so I am forced to keep the weight off.

That sounds like a good plan for the future.

Hopefully in another week or so I'll be able to fit back into 40s.

I've not checked a scale, can't "see" a difference, but think the pants are fitting a tad looser. 10-15lbs is coming off one way or another.

Nowhere near the success of porkchop....

I've had scotch. I like it. But it'll never make me quit drinking beer. It's like saying steak cured you of eating chicken. They're two completely different things.

If I could afford to eat steak every night, it would cure me of eating chicken.

Announcer#1 Holy Cow! As the ball is moving towards home plate in matrix like fashion, the whole night crew is scrambling to take a swing at it.
Announcer#2 Wait.......looks like they are going to huddle up and decide who gets to take a swing at this one.
Announcer#1 The ball is about half way home, they're breaking up the huddle.
Announcer#2 Looks like.....no..... it can't be!
Announcer#1 They've brought in Gochiefs from the minors.

I just tried on a pair of pants with a 40" waist. They're tight, but for the first time in YEARS, they fit.

Three weeks ago I was stretching 44"s, and on the verge of moving up to 46"s.

Weight now at 235, and not just first thing in the morning.

Frazod I don't know if you ever suffer heartburn or if you snore, But when I lost 30 lbs I stopped having heartburn and the wife says I don't snore as much. I was constantly taking Pepcid after practically every meal. Just a little side benefit of losing weight.

I started my excercize program yesterday to bust the gut away. 25 pounds I could do without. I don't feel as sore today as I thought. Probably a good thing I went light on the weights. I will go to the gym Mon, Wed and Fri while sometimes making it on the weekend. Not stopping til there's some definition on the abs.

Yes on both counts. I used to pop Tums like they were candy, and snored like a banshee (at least according to my deeply pissed-off wife).

She hasn't complained about the snoring in a couple of weeks, and my heartburn has almost completely gone away - I'm sure all the water I drink helps, too.

Join a gym if you can the equipent is like 15 bazillion, gazillion times better. They can't cost that much out there. As long as your going to put your time and effort into something you might as well get the results for $1 a day you'll probably have to lay out..

No thanks. I'm not ready for prime time yet. I also don't feel like getting scoffed at by a bunch of Schwartzenegger-wannabes.

Until I get to the point where I feel good about the way I look, when it comes to working out, I'll keep my fat ass in the basement.

Tim though I understand where you are coming from I think most gyms (cept Golds) will have plenty of other widebodies working out. If you change your mind avoid Golds however, they are indeed Muscle Geek Central.

I didn't say go to Gold's gym. Try a 24 hour fitness or something like that. Go at odd hours if it bothers you that much. Most of the people in there are not only out of shape but don't even know how to work out and try to tell other people how to. Where do you live? I spent most of my life in that business and I am telling you I can get you 10x the results for the same amount of effort easily. Getting in good shape is hard enough without making it harder. Swallow a little pride there tuff guy.

oin a gym if you can the equipent is like 15 bazillion, gazillion times better.

Good advice for some but with me it's just no good. I find that I do better if my excercise program is in house. Instead of having to go to gym and have time set aside for my workouts I do better in a situation where I can do my workouts at my liesure. I like to ride my mountain bike. There's no mountain in sight but it makes a great neighborhood crusier. I have no set schedule but I jsut make sure I ride once or twice a week. Just whenever the mood hits or when I can fit it in. Same for my weight lifting. I go light and try to lift just once a week. I throw in a three mile walk on the wifes treadmill and a round of golf and I've had plenty of activity for a 41 year old man. The one excersize that I'm not steady with though is the 'Push Aways'. Excercize makes me hungry.:huh:

Just stick with what ever you decide to do. I personally like the gym but I only like to go in the mornings. Since I work rotating shifts it is not too hard to do. I have stumble recently because I got my daughter signed up and we have to go after she gets out of school. There is always so much going on in the afternoon that we miss more often than not. She is about to start driving and I will start sending her by herself and I will return to going in the mornings.

Consistancy is king. I have missed 4 workouts in 18 months only because of small injuries though. I divide my 4 hours into 3 workouts a week.
I can't even tell you how many people sign up at gyms and never show up though. It's certainly the great majority. So if their not your dealio just do what your gonna do. Good luck. Stoked to see ya doing so well frazod.

The treadmill will be my Sherman tank and I will roll thru the enemy. The weights will be my artillery. I will lift the heavy shells to my guns and bam, fat is gone. The stairclimber will be my infantry, marching, marching. My intelligence will come from the stationary bike with the heartbeat monitor and I will know how quickly I eradicate my enemy. And when the battle is down my children can look up proudly and say, "Hey, daddy's waistband on his shorts doesn't roll over anymore. What happened to his stomach."

So far so good. I have lost two pounds this week and am firming up real well. I will trust the tape measure more than the scale though. I am starting off with a 41" waist. I work out three times a week. I do twenty minutes of aerobics switching off between stationary bike, treadmill and stair climber so I don't get too bored. Then I lift weights, curls, incline press and butterfly curls to start with. Eventually I will include more excercises and more sets. When I get the guttage down a little then I will also concentrate on the abs. Trying to start slow and build up.

5-minute warm up [treadmill].
1. Bench press
2. Bicep curl
3. French press
4. Lateral raise
5. Bent-over row
6. Shrug
7. Squat
8. Crunch
Repeat this circuit 3 times.
5 minute cool down [treadmill].

Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday:
30-minute aerobic walk [with ankle weights] or jog [with no weights].

I haven't been around much lately, but not because I've crapped out on the diet and am ashamed to admit it.

Quite the contrary.

The weight loss has slowed down, but that's to be expected. Tonight, a couple of significant achievements.

Weight (at night, after dinner) is now 225. That's 30 POUNDS gone, and may be even less in the morning.

Inspired by this, I tried on those 40 inch waistline pants that I was able to put on, but not comfortably, a couple of weeks ago.

They fit perfectly.

That's at least five inches off the waist line.

Now 26 pounds and 2 inches away from primary goal of being under 200 with a 38" waist.

How tall are you? I would not think it would take 26 more pounds to lose 2 more inches around the waste. I mean your goal weight makes sense but if you are around 5-9 to 5-10 as I recall I would think that if you lose 26 more pounds you would be into 36 pants.

I'm about 5'9".

Initially, I figured every 10 pounds would equate to an inch off the waistline. I've been happily surprised to see the waist line go faster.

You're right - another 25 pounds or so might well put me back in the 36 range. That hasn't happened in over 10 years. Apparently being more active makes a difference.

I did try on some 38" jeans a bit ago - I was able to get them buttoned, but only barely, and I didn't even try to zip them up. But in another two or three weeks, at this rate, they should be wearable again.

Everyone is built a little different. But I am 5'10 and when I weighed 205 I wore pants with a 36' waist and they fit comfortably to a little loose. Dropped to 180 and wear 32" The can be a little snug at times.

My wife has lost 43 pounds since the first of the year and she is looking fine :p

The waistline depends a lot on age and level of activity. When I was in high school (soooo soooo long ago) I weighed 195 with a 34" waist.

Before starting on the Atkin's diet last year I had ballooned to 234 pounds with a 44" waist (tight). I now weigh 173 pounds (and have been at that weight since December 1st of last year) with a 35" waist. At 6' tall I would have expected a smaller waist, but damn, I look skinny! I don't want to lose anymore - just maintain what I've done.

Sounds like a lot of ChiefsPlanet members are getting serious about their health. Congratulations. :toast:

I had a great workout on Monday but skipped my Wednesday workout. I need to go in again tonight. I have lost 4 pounds so far and need another 20 or so and I should be fine.

I finally broke the 200 lb marker this AM. 199 it is! 21 pounds down, 14 to go. The waist line is down from a very snug 36, probably should have been in 38's but didn't want to go there, to a very comfortable 36. Probably 2 inches off of the mid-section.

From 293 to 277 and dropping. My 44 waist pants that were too snug are now loose!

BTW, I made a bet with a buddy over who can lose the largest percentage by August 1. Loser has to take the winners family out to dinner.

The last two weeks were not good for the weight loss plan. I had too many activities going on to lose any weight. In fact, I put 5 or 6 pounds back on real quick, which was a bummer, BUT, dispite not working out much at all, have managed to melt those 5 or 6 pounds back off.

That was encouraging to me, as once I get to where I want to be (15 more pounds off.... lost 22 so far) I hope to be able to maintain that weight. I was kind of worried about that when the 5 or 6 went back on so easily, but am resting easier since those 5 or 6 also disappeared just as easily...


So, nothing major to report, other than a little piece of mind that once I get to my goal I think I can stay there.

I still haven't stepped on a scale, and am doing pretty well with the no pop(though I have one now) and snacks....the pants are fitting a little looser I think.....and last weekend I got the first 2nd hand question...

The mother in law didn't know I was trying..but asked the chic if I was losing weight...my stomoch looked flatter.

About time......

But I popped a button on my dockers leaving the house this morning....I'm blaming it on old thread, but it should be "re-motivating" anyway.

A useful bit of advice from Crossfit (http://www.crossfit.com/cf-info/start-how.html)

World-Class Fitness in 100 Words:

Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.

Congrats, Fraz.

I have some number reductions in the last two months, as well.

I have lost 15 pounds. From 165 to 150.

The best news is, my bad cholesterol is down from 240 to 159.

I feel a whole lot better, but my clothes don't fit me no more.

Has the 30 lbs. affected your wardrobe?

Keep up the good work!

Congratulations. You have arrived at my dream weight.

And 30 pounds has definitely affected the wardrobe. There are already pants I can no longer wear. Fortunately I'm able to fit into old stuff as I'm undergrowing the newer stuff.

I will need a new belt soon. I'm down to the last notch on my biggest one, and second-to-last notch on the others.

No further great weight loss to report. I'm holding steady between 225 and 230. I had slacked off on the treadmill for a couple of weeks, and the weight loss stopped cold. I'm using it again now. But I'm also building some muscle now, which will cut into the weight loss.

The old clothes are fitting better and better. And I can already see some results from the lifting. I can also fit into "L" shirts, as opposed to "XL."

Earlier this evening, for the first time since I started this, I actually bought some new "thinner" clothes. That felt good.

Just got done doing my 2 miles on the treadmill.

No more slacking off on that cardio shit. I just need to walk fast consistently and not run, because I'm too goddamn heavy and it kills my shins, which was why I quit in the first place.

It takes me about 32 minutes to do 2 miles at a good, fast-paced walk. Every other night, that ought to be enough.

Phobia
07-03-2003, 09:34 PM
Tim,
If you're having trouble with shinsplints, there are several remedies to help:
1. First and foremost - stretching before and after your cardio. Place your body at a 45 degree (or lower) angle with something rigid and push. You'll feel the muscles in your lower leg stretching.
2. Ice. If you start to develop shinsplints again, Ice immediately after stretching at the completion of your cardio.
3. Support. Wear some tight knee high socks if you don't want to invest in support sleeves, tights, or athletic tape. Shoes are incredibly important as well. Do you have some walking/running sneakers to wear? I know a lacing technique that is supposed to help, too.
4. Massage


If none of these remedies helps, the only things you can do is grin and bear the pain or rest. Shinsplints hurt, but you aren't going to hurt yourself worse by "playing" through the pain.

Weight isn't as much a contributing factor as you might think. I struggled with shinsplints when I was at my track weight, 180 lbs. When I'm 180, I'm about 6 percent body fat.

Thanks, Phil. I do stretch before and after my walks. The other stuff I'll keep in mind for later on.

But for right now, I think I'll just keep walking rather than running.

It's not like I could run all that far, anyway. All it did was cause me pain and, far worse than that, sap my motivation to do the work.

I think it's better for me to do 2 miles in a longer period of time than do a shorter distance in less time, exhaust myself and burn out.

Frazod
07-03-2003, 09:50 PM
I would also add that had I not tried to introduce the running so fast, I would have still been doing the treadmill all this time and probably be about 10 pounds lighter than I am right now. That annoys me.

Tim, at this stage I think it's way smarter to go for 'time walked ' not 'distance walked'. Get in the habit of burning calories ~ 150 minutes a week, in a month or 3 you'll find yourself covering more distance in the same amount of time. But for 'fatburning' purposes, what you're doing now is just fine. FWIW, 150 minutes per week is MY cardio goal, and it doesn't matter if it's walking, biking, jogging, hiking, rowing, or swing-dancing big ol' girls. It's all good. I just set the ol' pump to pumping ~ 150 minutes a week on cardio, and lift weights/do calisthenics 3 or 4 days per week.

If I don't overdo it, I can easily stick with doing 2 miles every other day. Easier said than done, I know, but I've just got to keep at it.

Without throwing in the running, it doesn't bother me at all. I've got a radio by the treadmill set to an awesome classic rock station. It's actually rather enjoyable.

Yeah, I've surprised myself at how into this I've gotten.

And I'm also starting to see something else - I really don't look all that fat anymore. I certainly wouldn't be mistaken for being thin, but I'm well below the point that people will look at me and think "Christ, what a pig."

The bulging gut is gone. I mean to keep it that way, and eventually do away with it completely.

I am closing in on my target. 28 pounds have been knocked off. 7 - 10 pounds to go. Averaging about a half of a pound a day, as tomorrow will be the 2 month marker since this thing started for me.

Great advice BOCF.

Fraz, last summer Infidel Goat turned me on to a book by a guy named Jeff Galloway. He's a very successful marathon runner. While I understand it's not your goal to do a marathon, he does offer some very good tips for folks who have not been running previously.
One of those strategeries is the run/walk strategery. By starting out with a run one minute walk 2 minutes (or walk 3 minutes) you get all the benefit of running and save wear and tear and the ankles, knees and feet.
In my own world of running I had real trouble getting past the 18 mile mark. When doing continuous running I would just die at 18 miles and it became very frustrating.
Infidel Goat then suggested the Galloway strategery and it worked perfectly, allowing me to get past my physical and mental hurdle of 18 miles.
Gradually you can invert those numbers as you feel more fit and can do a 2 minute run/ 1 minute walk and add more calorie burning.
Anyway, it's just a suggestion to get you over tose injury hurdles that pop up the way of your fitness plan.

Just got done doing my 2 miles on the treadmill. Still makes me roll sweat, but now, when I'm done, I feel good.

Nice little routine I've got going here - every other day switching between lifting and power walking. Since the walking doesn't make me stiff or sore, it almost seems like a day off.

Bought more thin clothes today. Probably won't do too much more of that until I can wear 38" waist stuff comfortably again.

I don't think I'll have to wait very long.

Reintroducing the treadmill has jumpstarted my metabolism. The weight loss has kicked back into high gear.

This morning, I weighed in at 215. Down from at least 255.

That's at least 40 POUNDS LOST.

And counting.

When I hit 200, I'll take a picture of myself in the last pair of gigantic circus tent pants that I still have, the same pants that I was getting too fat to wear two months ago. The rest I've thrown out, since I can no longer wear them.

"Nice little routine I've got going here - every other day switching between lifting and power walking. Since the walking doesn't make me stiff or sore, it almost seems like a day off."

I found out you reach a point where the same old walk starts to get pretty easy, you either need to add more time to the walking workout, or add more work to the workout. There's always ankle weights and 'heavyhands' and so on. But I just put on some heavy backpacking boots and a backpack and added ~ 12 lbs of dry beans/rice in a couple of ziplock bags, a flashlight and a waterbottle, a few other useful things. About 14 lbs total, the beans/rice don't dig into the back like 5 lb weights did. I walk at night, so the local yokels don't get a chance to snicker at the old guy shadowboxing round the park with a backpack on. I'll start schlepping more pounds around the park soon but this keeps me to the same 30-35 minute schedule. I just don't have unlimited time.

Frazod

Tonight, I was able to button, zip and sit down in several old pairs of pants/jeans that have a 38" inch waist line.

I'm not going to wear them out in public yet (still a bit too much flab over and under the waistline), because I've worked too hard to wear something that will still accentuate the fat I still have.

But two weeks ago I couldn't zip them.

Weight holding steady between 215 and 220. Clearly a lot of fat has been transformed into muscle from the workouts, because I couldn't wear these when I was at 220 on the way up several years ago.

I am absolutely f#cking STOKED.

I plan on being able to wear those 38" inch waist jeans, comfortably, outside the house two weeks from now. AND I WILL DO IT. :grr:

You're wasting away to a goddam toothpick frazod.

You better hope there's no stiff breezes in October. I'd hate to see you blow right out of the parking lot at Arrowhead.

Good for you Fraz...

I bit the bullet last week after having college friends come in and I got tired of them bitching about how much weight I had gained... well not bitching really, just telling me how much they would like me around for 15, 20, and 25 year reunions...

I had gained too much weight to start exercising hard like I used too, so I went on Atkins, even though before I never believed in prescribed diets... I was brought up to believe that eating less and exercise were all you needed to loose weight.

So anyway, I'm one week into it today and I'm down to 359 from the 373 I started at. My goal is 265 but I'll be happy if I can just wear the Tommy jeans and REAL Polo shirts by the time we all get together in October...

My plan is to get to around 300 and then start exercising like I used too... until then walking until my back can't take it anymore, Atkins, and Hyroxicut seem to be working...

I wouldn't call 220 "wasting away." :D

Everyone who sees me comments on how much weight I've lost and how "thin" I look. Certainly, this is relative. I'm nowhere near "thin" yet. If you saw me tomorrow, you definitely wouldn't think thin.

But I am thin in comparison to the fat piece of shit that I was 2 1/2 months ago.

I am happy, but I am not satisfied. Not by a damn sight. I'm not going to settle for being able to squeeze into 38s, or even for fitting comfortably into 38s. I've trimmed about 7 inches off my waist. I can do more. I WILL DO MORE.

When I'm squeezing into 34s, we'll talk. I figure that's about 5 more inches.

Fraz, are you planning to attend the 37 ForEver banquet?

I am looking forward to meeting you, as I have been one of your fans while I was lurking. I think you were the first to give me props when I donated to the ChiefsPlanet administrator fund when I only had 11 posts.

I don't see me being able to attend the game, unless we start a "GET DINNY TO HIS FIRST NFL GAME" fund drive. I would like to attend the tailgating party at B5?, but I will be riding to the banquet gig with the band, (and back home that night), and am not sure how to get in to the B5? party, even if I have time to return.

Perhaps I should contact Phob for a solution to my dilema, but I would really be pleased if you could make it to the banquet.

By the way, the band has the cobwebs all blown off, and our shit is now on 11.

B-5 is on the west side of the stadium. If you can make it, you shouldn't have any trouble finding it.

I am still a fat bastard. The first 4 pounds came off pretty quick, but then then job pressures and time pressures got me away from my workouts. I went for a good walk with the Mrs today but I think right now I am back where I started. Yesterday she kept putting it off and we didn't go. I haven't been to the gym in weeks so the muscle tone is leaving.

Just keep it up. Try to find the time. If your wife won't walk, walk alone.

When we initially got our treadmill, I used it regularly at first, but the wife crapped out after a couple of days. That was my excuse for quitting as well. And the treadmill gathered dust for 4 years before I started using it again.

Just got done with the treadmill power-walking and lifting, and will do my situps before I go to bed. It is rare that I miss a day doing this now.

Still going.

Weight still holding around 220. I think I've hit that wall, and the days of rapid weight loss are over.

However, after a month of lifting, I'm now starting to see serious results in the muscle department, probably another reason the weight loss has tailed off.

I'm seeing a marked increase in my arm size, and definition in my arm muscles that I've never had in my life. When I flex my muscles, my arms feel SOLID - also a first. The daily situps are also making a big difference. The fat's still there, but much less of it, my ribs are clearly visable and there is a definite cut on the sides of my abs.

I'm now doing 35 sits per night on the crunch bench, and I'm upping it by 5 per week. I'm also increasing the amount of weight I'm working with.

Again, thanks to Big Daddy for all his advice! :thumb: I'm still on the case.

I saw this thread at the top tonight and wanted to relate something to all of you. Tonight, I had to deal with an ER patient who weighed an estimated (cause we don't have a scale that goes that high) 700#

This person laid across TWO ER gurneys and had a canvas sheet underneath (this person). The sheet would connect to a huge home crane which was how this person was moved from place to place.

I kid you not.

Jesus Christ! :eek: How many people did it take to move her?

Eveybody grabbed a piece of that canvas that was available. 15? I didn't even count. Never have I seen a human so big.

My fear was that the brakes on one of the gurneys would give way adn she'd fall between them right to the floor. If somebody that big hits the floor there's no getting up.

We have one bed that's specifically made to house xxxxxxxxx large folks.

The thing weighs about a ton and has to be moved on the freight elevator due to it's width.

I don't know how many people they used to move her from the gurneys to the bed. Thankfully my shift ended. My spine was thanking me all the way home.
