How's everybody doing? Since my last post I gained 5 lbs on vacation! Definitely going the wrong way!

 

Here's some humor to lighten this challenge up:

A guy calls a company and orders their 5-day, 10 lb. weight loss program.

 

The next day, there's a knock on the door and there stands before him a voluptuous, athletic, 19 year old babe dressed in nothing but a pair of Nike running shoes and a sign around her neck. She introduces herself as a representative of the weight loss company. The sign reads, "If you can catch me, you can have me."

 

Without a second thought, he takes off after her. A few miles later huffing and puffing, he finally gives up. The same girl shows up for the next four days and the same thing happens. On the fifth day, he weighs himself and is delighted to find he has lost 10 lbs. as promised.

 

He calls the company and orders their 5-day/20 pound program. The next day there's a knock at the door and there stands the most stunning, beautiful, sexy woman he has ever seen in his life. She is wearing nothing but Reebok running shoes and a sign around her neck that reads, "If you catch me you can have me". Well, he's out the door after her like a shot. This girl is in excellent shape and he does his best, but no such luck. So for the next four days, the same routine happens with him gradually getting in better and better shape.

 

Much to his delight on the fifth day when he weighs himself, he discovers that he has lost another 20 lbs. as promised. He decides to go for broke and calls the company to order the 7-day/50 pound program

 

"Are you sure?" asks the representative on the phone. "This is our most rigorous program."

 

"Absolutely," he replies, "I haven't felt this good in years."

 

The next day there's a knock at the door; and when he opens it he finds a huge muscular guy standing there wearing nothing but pink running shoes and a sign around his neck that reads, "If I catch you, your arse is mine."

 

He lost 63 pounds that week.

A formidable head an chest cold derailed my plans to begin training this past weekend. Hopefully the last remnants will be gone by the weekend, and I can begin then.

BTW - I'm down 8lbs from 01/01/10.

 

For you especially, need to see a dated scale sheet (without you holding onto the full 100 shots of nitrous bottles)...

After recovering from illness and getting the technical issues sorted out on the Wii, I was finally able to begin my workout series today.

 

Start weight: 247.5

BMI: 35.5

 

I'll check in next week, and hopefully it'll be lower.

 

I usually just go the exercise route, but what kinds of calorie cutting methods do people use?

(Edit: Added BMI.)

lessee - $300/mo food budget for family of 4.

 

I likely eat 1/2 that...

 

$150, reduced to $25 month (1/6th the amount of food intake, c'mon other folks around the world survive on that)

 

that's $125/mo free for the tire budget...
