    Smile Week 0 Report - Let's get started off right!

    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....

    Well, 2012 is here. I'm going to continue trying to lose some weight. I'm not stressing the weight at this point beause I'm steadily losing inches adn I'm healthier than I've been in years.

    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.
    6' 0", soon to be 40

    1/3/11: 302
    7/3/11: 237 (lowest)
    1/3/12: 262 starting again.

    Lowest weight was 7/19/11, the day after 4th child was born. Life is different. No routine or time like I had prior, but will prioritize. Goal is to get below 220. One day at a time.

    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!

    Been doing cardio every night except for two I think. Still can't do any lifting, but I'm keeping on the cardio.

    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

    Was pretty good with the tracking the last few days.

    Doug_H : Good on you for the STP in one day. We've ridden to Longview for the first night now two years in a row, so I think all the way is in order
    ....of course after I lose another 25+.
