204 total pounds lost to date, weighing in and a challenge posted.

It's that time of the week again kids, that's right its the day that we record any losses for the week so lets get to it. When I woke up I went straight for the scale and the number that flashed across the display was 330.2lbs, second go at it was 330.0lbs and finally attempt number three was 330.2lbs and that's a 2 pound loss for the week and I'll take it! That's 204 total pounds lost since starting and obviously a new low weight for me. I haven't focused on the number that I have left to lose in a while and when I just did the math and saw that I am 55 pounds away from my first goal weight I have to admit that I grinned to myself, I say my "first goal" because I want to get to 267 pounds as my goal instead of 275 and I am 55 away from 275. Why 267 pounds you ask? because at 267 pounds I will have lost half of my total body weight and I figure whats an extra 8 pounds to get there right? and then my Ultimate goal weight (which I am sure will change again anyways) is to weigh 250lbs but that bridge will be crossed when I get there and here are some pictures to visualize what I have lost as well as what I currently weigh.

This old Indian weighs in at 330 pounds, yep, I weigh the same as that there motorcycle.

Chuck Liddel from the UFC weighs 204 pounds, I have lost an entire Ultimate fighter dude, who wouldda thunk.

Yesterday I ate a lot! it was all good food and all fit within my calorie range but I felt like it was a lot of food and the day before weigh in too! have a look at the menu.

7:15 AM
2 cups honey comb cereal 220
1 cup 1% milk 110

10:00 AM
1 plum 75

12:00 PM
3oz deli turkey 75
2 slices light rye bread 80
1 T miracle whip 40
lettuce/tomato/pickle 30

1:00 PM
cereal bar 90

1:30 PM
1 apple 90

3:15 PM
9oz strawberries 70

3:45 PM
1 plum 75

6:45 PM
1oz pretzels 110

7:00 PM
6oz tilapia 200
3/4 cup white rice 150
green salad 45
dressing 60
olive oil 50

Grand total of 1570 calories but I did have a handful of my daughters chocolate peanut butter cereal after my bike ride so the calories are a tad higher but still under the 1700 that I allow myself to have. I mentioned my bike ride, I did 4.5 miles and made it all the way up that hill I mentioned a few posts back, you know, the one that kicked my ass pretty decently. I am paying for it a bit this morning with some tenderness in my right side and low back but hey! Hydration was on par with about 1.75 gallons of water but no green tea because I forgot to brew it the night before, so in addition to the H2O I did have two 33oz bottles of a sugar free drink, one cranberry and one fruit punch.

I said in yesterdays post that for every comment that I get on this post that I would do 5 push ups tomorrow, so there it is, each comment that I get here on this post before midnight tonight will make me do 5 push ups, the catch is that you need to tell me that you drank a glass of H2O and actually drink it! also posting 12 comments from the same person still only gets 5 push ups! so its 5 push ups per unique comment (I paid for not making that clear last challenge) and there you have it, two pounds lost this week, a new low and a challenge so all in all today has started out well enough besides the tenderness in my side and back.

Thanks for reading along.

As Ever


  1. Ok so I drank 1c of water and does drinking another cup


  2. I'm off to fill up my glass of H20!
    Congrats for reaching an all time new low weight! That's good stuff!

  3. Three glasses in this morning. Congrats on the loss! You're an inspiration.

  4. Great job! FYI, I'm sitting at my desk at work with a 1 liter bottle of water. It's half gone. That's my end so good luck with the push-ups!

  5. Wow, amazing job! I'm down 32 oz and while I hate to be brutal, I think you better get started pushing the ground! :) Good luck on your continued success!

  6. Congratulations!!

    I also have just over 1/2 my body weight to lose and am just starting out on my journey.

    I have my water thermal all filled up and I drink several of them all day long so yes you have another 5 extra pushups to do.

    I am not up to doing as many as you, (yet) but I am adding another 5 onto the pushups I already do to match the 5 I have given you

  7. You have done an amazing job so far...keep up the good work!

  8. I just housed a liter of water, so drop and give me five soldier!

  9. Just downed 20 ounces of H2theizzo. Congrats on the loss man. Keep up the good work.

  10. Drinking water for ya right now.

    Congrats on a new low - soon, you'll be in your "twenties" again!

  11. Great Job on the weight loss and I did have my water 16oz bottle to be exact

  12. I wouldn't mind gaining that Ultimate Fighter Dude - if I could gain him in the form pictured, and not as fat on my own body! LOL

    When I'd lost 112 I took great pleasure in informing my personal trainer that I'd lost an entire one of her.

    (Before that my unit was in "small cats" - as in approx 10 lbs. So I've also now lost almost 12 small cats. I love the bizarre image of having 12 cats strapped all over my body - a furry, wriggly, HEAVY, complaining mass of feline-ness.)

    Seriously, though, congratulations!

    P.S. I am swilling a cup of water RIGHT NOW. I can't do a proper push-up yet, myself. :-|

  13. i drop about 1/2 liter as soon as i wake up while im still thirsty.

    gosh, i wish i could eat 1500 calories and feel like id had a "lot" of food!


  14. Congratulations man you are doing great :)

  15. Just finished my first bottle of water for the day. Enjoy the extra push-ups!

  16. Congratulation man---absolutely amazing. You're headed straight for that goal with gusto.

    I so want a bike like yours!!! Love it!

    I could do that now---I really could huh? I need to convince myself even more and go get one already.

    Thank you for a super inspiring and very real post every time I drop in.

    My best always and congrats on the 204 pounds lost. It's cool, we're running neck and neck on total pounds lost!! Together we've lost a Sumo Wrestler!


  17. Congrats on losing an entire Ultimate fighter! :D I am drinking a 20 ouncer of water.

  18. You are doing great! Keep up the awesome work! Drinking that BIG OLE GLASS OF H2O! Good luck on the push ups!!


  19. Way to go on the 2 lbs gone and the new low, you are doing terrific. It is hard to believe how little is left to go isn't it? Put in 5 for me! I'm drinking my water.

  20. Great job with your weight loss and I'm downing my 16 oz and thinking about setting the glass down on your back as you are doing the pushup.

  21. Wow congrats on the NEW-LOW!!
    I'm having my cup of water in the office now :>
