    48 yrs old, male, 5'10"

    266 lbs on June 13th, 2011 - Heaviest I've ever been. Miserable and looked like crap.
    From 6/13/2011 - 12/31/2011, I lost 61.4 lbs, reduced BF% by 12.9%, and reduced total body measurement total by 30.750". Missed year-end goal by 4.6 lbs, but not dwelling on it. Hitting the ground running in 2012 with all new goals, and adding "Challenges" to the list.

    Goal #2: 189 lbs by 03/31/2012
    Goal #3: 175 lbs by 06/01/2012
    Final Goal: Weight unknown, looking for max 14% Body-fat

    Challenge #1 - Complete the 2012 Ouachita Challenge Tour under max time allowed (60 mile MTB on 31 March 2012)
    Challenge #2 - Compete in and complete all events in the Louisiana XC Race Series, and podium in the Cat 3 overalls.

    I'm in - 39 years old, 6'-4", and 262 lbs as of this morning. I had a goal this time last year to lose 40lbs but...life got in the way. Early in the year we found out we were expecting our first child...turned out to be twins, in the spring my father had two strokes, and mom had heart valve replacement surgery. So the weight loss goal turned into a small gain (7 lbs) and some other goals got sidelined as well, but the good news is everyone is doing well; the twins are three months old, and my parents are both making adjustments to a new lifestyle.

    The new goal is to lose 50 lbs by June 30.

    01/01/2012 - 262.2 lbs

    Im 31, 6-3 283 this morning. My plan would be to get down to 225 by the end of next year. I am going to work out at my local YMCA at least 4 times per week and mountain bike at least 20 miles per week. My short term goal is to be down to 250 by June. I figure 5 lbs per month is very attainable, the hard thing will be maintaining once I get down to that level. We love to eat in the south and most of the food is not good for you.

    1/1/12 - 283
    1/22/12 - 281 Not much riding and slacking on gym.

    I'm 24 and 6' 2'' and was doing alright on my weight loss until I got injured at work and wasn't able to do much of anything. I'm finally able to start walking without much pain again so I've been walking on the treadmill at the gym. Still can't lift weights because of my shoulder. My goal is to be 225 by the end of April, which will definitely be tough, but I want to join the National Guard so I need to step it up.

    17 pounds a year, I guess that's better than gaining 17 pounds a year. At this rate I'll be at my goal weight in only 3 more years! This last year had several weight swings. I had a lowest of around 240 but never got back above the 271, thankfully. This year I put in for Leadville so If I get into that I HAVE to lose a bunch or I'll blow out a lung. I'm doing alright for today on eating. One day at a time....

    Ultimate goal is 220 lbs.

    I'm going to join in on this one this year. I'm 6'1" and currently 274 lbs.

    I started mountain biking in late 2009 at 317 lbs. My ultimate goal is to lose a total 100 lbs (no deadline). 2 months ago I was past the halfway point but a trashed rear wheel kept me off the bike until this past month. I was going to the gym but getting bored before I could finish a decent workout. Holiday eating didn't help things

    Week 0 - 1/3/12 - 274 lbs

    I started the C25K program this week. WOW am I out of shape, running for a minute was tough at first. I'm on day 3 of week 1 and can already feel it getting (a little) easier. This might be the way to go for me until it gets warmer outside.

    6' 4" 340 this morning, started at 365 four months ago. First goal would be under 300 by my birthday 4/29. 250 would be the final goal, which is what I weighed when playing volleyball in college.

    Happy New Year.

    1/3/11: 302

    Good luck everyone.

    2012 Goals

    I'm 36, 5'10 and weight 215 lbs. My goal weight is 165-170. I want to achieve this goal by June 2, 2012. That's the day I ride in my first Dirty Kanza. I started eating Paleo/Primal on January 3, 2012. Strength training, running and lots of riding. Oh yeah, and the biggest challenge of all..........changing my mindset. As long as I can remember, I've looked to food and drink to provide immediate gratification. Shifting my mindset from one of deprevation to one of wellness and peace may be the biggest hurdle.

    Goal weight 200 : 7/14/2012 STP one day

    I've been getting to the gym 2x / week...I'll keep that but add more riding (prefer mtn, but also do road). I've also added the MyFitnessPal to my life so as to not delude myself with how much I am consuming.

    I got a calorie and exercise App from Livestrong that I've been using. Tracking is a good thing I'm finding.

    I did the one day STP last year. I think I was @ 215 when we did it and did ok.

    Ok, Going to do better this year. I started late last year.
    I am 46
    5'11"
    currently 213.6
    Want to be down around 185 by the end of summer.
    right now the wife and I are spending 2 nights a week at spin class. New bikes to help give us incentive. My mountain bike is a Raleigh m-60 of unknown vintage. New road bike is a ridley pegasus.
    Here we go folks.
    01/07/12 213.6
    01/29/12 216.2 I have weighed myself at 6.30 at night. Not a good time to do that. I have working really hard on the trainer so I don't think it's a fat problem as of now but a muscle situation. I am stronger now then ever on my bike. I am seeing some major changes in my legs right now. lots of definition. right now my hart rate is 70 BPM.
    Now in saying all of this, We have only been riding once a week for the last 2 weeks. As you can see I have put on some weight again. Need to step up my program again. Rock on guys. Rock on.

    resolve that if I can't get outside to ride; spin. If I can't spin; treadmill!

    Good start Sinker! Keep up the hard work. Look into getting a Lange Body Fat Caliper. Allows you to do your own BF% measurements on YOUR schedule... same time of day, same person, same measurement spot, etc. etc... leads to better consistency of measurements.

    Way to go Washbourne! 2 lbs in a week is more than the 1.92 lbs/week needed to reach your goal! Keep it up!

    First weigh in tonight and I'm not sure what it is. We have two scales in our house and looks like I need some new ones. On the old traditional scale I show 240lbs which equates to losing one lb. On my digital scale I show 236lbs which equates to 5 lbs lost. 1 lb seems much more reasonable for a one week time period.

    For my first week I mountain biked 3 times for a total of 62 miles and did cardio in the weight room once for 45 minutes. For the week total I am almost 5000 calories under my weekly goal. I'm pleased with my first weeks effort.

    1/8/12- 240lbs or 236

    Ive been up and down this diet bungy cord and over the years I have found one thing out. When you realllly get serious at it you realllly watch the weekends.

    1st goal was to NOT gain on the weekends. Step on the scale on Friday morning and then again on Monday morning and its not higher.

    2nd. Switch to Ultra beer. I know, I know. It tastes like sawdust. But its better than weight. Oh and limit of 2. Thats even tougher

    3rd REALLY get to it and work as hard on the weekends as I do during the week. TRACK every cal and work out a bit extra. If I work out extra (burn 1500 cals or more) I can eat a bit extra.

    I also find that Saturday and Sunday are BAD days to take off/rest days. Your sittin around the house instead of busy at work or whatever and you just wanna eat. Plus the temptation from whatever the fam is cookin....

    So I take Fridays off. Gets me rested for the weekend and I try and workout 3 times over the weekend and take a nice long slow ride to burn some fat

    Let's see.. had a great finish to 2011. I'm 38, 6'-0" and was at 220# during September 2011 (my heaviest ever). Having purchased a Specialized Demo 8 that was set up for a 165# rider, I looked into changing the springs on my suspension. Easy for the rear shock. The springs in my Fox 40s were titanium, though. Bought a steel spring, which seemed to weigh like 5 pounds more and said F' it! Don't wanna buy another stiffer titanium spring for that fork, so gonna lose the weight! My goal is 180# by June 2012, or opening of Mammoth & Northstar.

    As of today 1/11/12 - 205# (Have ridden about 1000 miles on the XC bikes since Sept! Lovin it again!)

    36 y/o, 6'1" - 225 lbs as of January 1, 2012.

    Goal is 195 by July 1st. Can't go lower, as the wife says I look sick, with sunken cheeks...
    Fit is more important actually. If I drop below 200 and climb like a goat again, I'll be happy.

    Did mostly DH over past two years, getting back into XC. Building the new bike now.
    Till then, running, weights, plank.

    Didn't lose anything this week which is kind of disappointing, but I didn't gain anything either so that's good.

    Jan 1, 2012- 241 lbs( not 100% sure this weight was accurate)
    Jan 8, 2012- 236 lbs
    Jan 14, 2012- 232.8 lbs

    Put in 31 miles on MTB this week and one night to the gym. Weather was bad most of the week and trails were closed. Limited my intake to less than 2000 calories every day except for Friday night.

    This week looks to be beautiful weather in North Texas and I have 3 rides planned plus a 3 hour endurance race on Saturday....Should be a good week. Hope to see 22? Lbs on the scale next Sunday....

    Back on Track

    5'10, 36 years old
    Goal: 165 lbs by June 2, 2012

    1/2/12 - 215 lbs
    1/9/12 - 212 lbs
    1/16/12 - 213 lbs

    I've been following the Pale/Primal diet for 2 weeks. I fell off the wagon on Saturday. I've discovered that alcohol is a trigger for eating for me. I had several glasses of Primal approved wine on Friday and it slipped into a another "I'll start over again on Monday" line of reasoning. Well, I'm happy to report that Sunday was a perfect Paleo day. My goal, however, is steep. Not only do I want to lose a lot of body fat, but I'm racing the Dirty Kanza on June 2. I don't have time for wasted days. So I'm going 100% Primal and will not have a drop of alcohol until after the Dirty Kanza.

    I'm 46, been riding for 4 yrs but not consistent. I have been eating any and everything. time to get serious.

    I'm 6'3" and weigh 266

    My goal is to be 230 by July1st...thats 6 lbs per month!

    1-8-12 266
    1-16-12 256 I realize alot of this is water weight but it still feels good.

    4 steps....
    1. cut out beer I think this is the culprit...
    2. cut out processed sugars...I'm bad...this will be harder
    3. limit rice, pasta, potatoes and bread
    4. ride more it seems like the more I ride, the better I eat. must be those damn hills!

    Alright, I want to play. I'm 42 and been riding for years, but its time off the bike that has been a killer. I have close to zero willpower, but now its time to get serious.

    I'm 5"11" with a starting weight of 275 (late December).

    My goal is to be 225 by August 1st...about a pound and a quarter per week.

    1-7-12 270
    1-14-12 265.4

    1. beer is out beer entirely... my kegerator is very lonely without me :-(
    2. going paleo with some slight modifcations
    3. do something every day. Walk the dog, ride, run, hike, doesn't matter. I just need to keep moving!

    336 (1 more will be 30) as of this morning losing about 2 lbs a week. Which I'm happy with. Starting Friday spending 9 days in a casino. Last year I gained 10 lbs in those 9 days. Packing my own food and hope to stay away from the buffets. Hopefully this will limit my weight gain

    Week 3 Report

    48 yrs old, male, 5'10", 266 lbs on June 13th, 2011 - Heaviest I've ever been. Miserable and looked like crap. From 6/13/2011 - 12/31/2011, I lost 61.4 lbs, reduced BF% by 12.9%, and reduced total body measurement total by 30.750".

    Goal #1: 196 lbs by 02/12/2012
    Goal #2: 189 lbs by 03/31/2012
    Goal #3: 175 lbs by 06/01/2012
    Final Goal: Weight unknown, looking for max 14% Body-fat

    Challenge #1 - Complete the 2012 Ouachita Challenge Tour under max time allowed (60 mile MTB on 31 March 2012)
    Challenge #2 - Compete in and complete all events in the Louisiana XC Race Series, and podium in the Cat 3 overalls.

    Week 0 - 01/01/2011 - 204.6 lbs, 22.2% BF
    Week 1 - 01/08/2011 - 203.2 lbs
    Week 2 - 01/14/2012 - 201.0 lbs
    Week 3 - 01/21/2011 - 198.0 lbs, Down 3.0 lbs, Down 6.6 lbs from start. 2.0lbs remain to achieve 2012 Goal #1 (12 February 2012). Final 2011 Goal achieved on January 15, 2012... 15 days later than I planned, but I'll take it.

    This is the first time I have "officially" been under 200lbs since May of 1992... almost 20 years.

    Road 60.26 miles this week, 13.48 off-road. Worked out 5 of 7 days. Riding Lake Bistineau (easy course) today, I recognized that it was "easier" than last time I road it... smoother/more efficient. One "unplanned dismount" due to a handle bar catching a small tree. Think I'll be cutting at least 10mm from each end as soon as I can get the right fixture tool here.

    Thank you Lord for keeping me safe, healthy, and motivated!

    1/9/12 - 248 Worked my ass off this week. Only one rest day, on Saturday. Otherwise, mucho biking/running/eating well.
    1/16/12 - 251 Well, after a week of riding/eating well and a weekend of riding/hiking/hill climbing I gained 3 pounds. I hate the weekend. Oh well, keep on plugging. Nice 34 mile ride today to get the week going again.
    1/23/12 - 248 spent several days at 245, but of course the evil weekend reared its head and I finished up. Down from last week at least.

    1/2 255
    1/9 254
    1/16 252.4
    1/23 250.6

    Drastic improvement over the past few months since I started counting calories again. Have gone from maybe taking off a half pound a week to almost 2 a week with basically the same amount of exercise.

    Hardly rode any this week. Rained for 2 days straight earlier this week and closed all the trails. In fact all but one are still closed tonight. Went to gym and did cardio once on Wednesday. Went over calorie intake yesterday by 448 so I'm surprised to see any loss on the scale tonight. Weather outlook is improved for this week hopefully some trails will dry out and I can get some riding in.
