Well, I am still not great at posting. I forgot to come and post my new weigh ins here each week. So here I am catching up on 3 weeks of updates.
I lost 5.1 lb the first week, 1.4 lb the 2nd week, and 2.7 lb the 3rd week. Putting me @ 339.1lb currently. I was hopping to do better, but I know I havent been exercising liek I should for major weightloss. I have been eating well, and building my cardio ability. I feel so much better and healty. I just wish I was 15+ lbs down instead of less than 10lbs.
Wish me luck, my plan is to be joining Cardinal Fitness this week, possibly tonight barring any work issues. The price is good, just need to get off my ass and get into the place.

I have joined the 'Biggest Losers' contest at work
I know my weight has gotten out of control. There are a few things I notice about my current state of health & bodysize, and I want to change them. Add in that my mom is so much happier beign so much thinner than years back, and Corwin makign comments to me about how much I eat, or how fast I wolf stuff down. I figure its got to stop.
So I have been waiting the last 2 months for the work sponsored Biggest Loser contest to start. I started reading the biggest loser books, reading up on diet and exercise, laying out my plan. I decided on increasing my exercise slowly, starting off my process with the basics: No Soda, no starbucks, no candy, and 5 reasonable meals per day at 3 hour intervals.
I started the controlled meal process about March 23rd, so that when it came time for our weigh in on the 31st, I would have 'diet' in place. March 31st came, and I had the food thing down pat, fine tuning was needed but otherwise all was good. I even started taking Peta on longer walks, at a brisk pace to get the ehart up a bit. My team went in and weighed in, my official weigh in on the big boy scale was 348.3lbs.
The weigh in process just solidified my resovle to lose weight. I dotntthink I look like I weigh that much, and most people are shocked to hear I do. I even found a guy on the web that weighed in @ 344 and made me look fit in comparison. So it could be worse. I buckled in, and made my meals healthier, and did what I could to keep the calories healthier. Lots of Veggies and fruits, cuting my carbs back to whole grain items, easing back on the cheese, etc...
Today was a good day, there is a scale here at work that wouldnt weigh me before, as it stopped @ 350lbs. It isnt the scale I weighed in on, so its not calibrated the same, but last friday it said ERR when i got on it, today it said 349. Which means I lost at least 1-2 lbs since last friday... This doesnt fix things but at least I know I lost soemthing - expect an update in the AM as to just how much I have lost.
Seriously... I felt bad thinking it had been one, but to come back here and suddenly relaize that my last post was on my 33rd birthday. Here I am 3 months into my 36th year on the planet, my websites all devoid of timely posts.
Anyway, I am planning to start posting again, my trials and tribs of my work sponsored 'Biggest Loser' Contest. Nobody is reading this at all - but I need a public forum to deliver my results... good or bad.
