Weighing in on Halloween, good news!

I will get right to it today, I dropped 2 pounds bringing me to 369! thats right I am into the 60's! I have been riding my bike daily which has no doubt helped me this week and considering that I was up more than a pound in the beginning of the week I would have to say that I am happy with the two pound loss. I am giving myself this week to ride the bike and walk and the ST starts more serious starting next week, I want to ease into it rather than slamming into it hard off the bat. I have 94 pounds left to lose before I hit my goal of being 275 pounds so I am inching closer and closer by the week. here are a few photos for you to see what I have lost and all that.

This Ducati 848 weighs in at 369 pounds just like yours truly.

1974 Suzuki TM75 weighs in at 165 pounds which is what I have lost so far.

Lilo the pit bull weighs in at 94 pounds which is what I have left to lose to hit my goal.

Here is a look at my intake from Thursday.

1 banana 105
1 T peanut butter 95

Grand total of 1590 calories for the day, not too shabby! Halloween should be fun We have plans to take the kiddos out tonight around the neighborhood and it will be another chance to compare the weight loss. I remember last year purposely taking my time because of my back hurting and we made it around a couple blocks with no real issue but this year should be better and since I walk around the neighborhood now for exercise I know trick or treating will be easy peasy this time around. Into the 60's with my weight and a nice long walk planned for later today, I will have to watch the candy but that should be no problem really.

Once again I will say that if you read this far into the post hop on up and grab a big glass of water and your body deserves it, if you do that and post a comment stating so I will do 10 push ups on Saturday for every comment posted before midnight Halloween night! I could be getting myself in trouble with that one but it is what it is and the challenge is on!

As Ever


  1. 20 oz down babe!!! I'll be counting on Saturday.

  2. Mmmmmm! This big glass of water is refreshing and delicious. I hope your push up on my behalf is refreshing and productive!

    Seriously -- you are inspiring, Zeus!

  3. I got my water too, 80oz down already, 32 more in front of me. I sure hope you can do all those pushups lol. I'm sure you will be loving every one of them *smile*.

  4. Ok, as soon as my coffee is gone, I'm going to down some water just to make you do those push ups! :-)

    You know what? I'll do the first ten with you!

  5. I gotta find a way to be as motivated as you are. Great job as always, and I'm off to grab some water. From the looks of it, you're gonna be busy tomorrow.

  6. I've had my water!
    Well done on the loss this week.

  7. Well, crap. I missed the deadline. Well, I hope your 70 push ups were enough!! :)

    Great job with the loss! Congrats on getting into the 60's!!! I cannot believe you only have that little ole pit bull worth of weight to lose! That's going to come and go in no time, I just know it!!

    Hope you had a great time last night trick or treating! Until next time...

  8. Whoa, Zeus, you're gonna be one pooped pup after all those pushups! Just wanted to pop in and sendout congrats on the latest loss - >>applause,applause<<
