    Default Going for a healthy weight...

    Here's a little background...
    I have always been a 'big ol' boy'. Always been a little heavier than most but not necessarily obese or what I would call 'fat', just healthy. Up until 2+/- years ago, since then I have gained 50lbs, with the last 20 coming in the last 5 months. Decided over the holidays that this has got to stop, and I have better get healthy again if I want to see my kids grow up(don't have kids yet, maybe in a few years). So, last night went and joined the gym again and weighed in at 309.2lbs

    Yesterday, I also started the Fat Smasher Diet. It was made famous around the archery circle by BigPappa over at AT. He lost over 100lbs in a short amount of time. I am using this inspiration to lose 80lbs in 7 months. I can do it. My goal is to be at 230lbs by the time I turn 30, which is July 30, 2009.

    I will track my progress in here:

    Day 1: Walked at 3mph for 30min. 309.2lbs
    Day 2: stayed tuned

    Good luck. Loosing weight is tough buisness, but at least you seem motivated to get it done. You'll feel so much better when it's gone, not to mention the exta energy provided by the exercise.
    That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!

    Check out Redneckarcher.com. It's an adult archer/hunting site that feels like hunt camp.

    I just got a WII Fit for Those who are video game challenged its an acessory to the latest nintendo system. If your kids have a Wii find a fit. I thought it was a joke. I used it for 30 minutes today and it got my heart going. I am 230 and need to get down to 190-200 range. It will also help you by building your balance, which helps with shooting.

    Default Update

    Day 2(Tuesday): Walked 30min at 3.5mph= 307.2lbs

    That is 2 lbs in one day. I would like to get 30 or 40 off real quick like, maybe by the end of February, then I can slow down some to about 1 1/2lb a week.

    Everyone think 270lb is doable by the end of February??? I DO!!!!

    Thats why you weigh in once a week and just report what the numbers say...and they say I didn't loose anything for week one...week two isn't looking soo good either...

    don't think my methods are working...time for more extreme measures!!!
