Gravity interpretation and the fat guy turns.

This morning as I walked towards the scale I said to wify "I will be happy with a 314 on this thing today" and upon stepping onto the cold black gravity measurement device 314.2lbs flashed onto the display. Every day since Monday the scale has said 316 pounds then I hit the gym yesterday and a 314 pops in on me, I don't think that making my 300 pound mark by April 2nd is a possibility at this point because it would mean that I need to drop 14 pounds in a week but I do want to see how close I can get. Making life hard on the fat will be my mission this week and I am going to go very hard on myself at the gym and be extremely strict with my intake this week and I am going for broke with the weigh in for next Friday because being sick for as much as I have the past 2 weeks really mussed me all up. In all honesty I am past all of the "go go go lets get er done NOW" part of this better health/weight loss thang and I am sort of just living life in moderation at this point which was the goal really and I have lost more than 200 pounds and have kept it off for close to a year now so changes have been made permanent where my health goes.

I mentioned yesterday that the contestants on the biggest loser did a challenge where they raced to 26.2 miles on stationary bikes and that I was going to try this because I think that I can beat the fastest contestants time. So, I walked in the gym yesterday and was riding the bike per usual and thought "lets do half of that distance just to gauge whether I am crazy or see if I can beat that time" I ended up riding for just under 35 minutes and went 13 miles on resistance setting 11 which is where I ride every day. That pace is faster than the fastest contestants end time but it was only half of the distance so finding out if I could keep that pace for the whole 26.2 miles will be interesting and I think once I am back to a normal schedule I will give it a go, I believe that I can beat his time.

Barring me getting sick again, its lovely having preschool aged children sometimes I tell ya, I am planning on an aggressive week as far as my intake and exercise goes. The plan will be to eat my allowed calorie allotment and do not go over, eat clean and watch the sodium and carbs, drink at least 1 gallon of green tea per day and 1/2 to 1 gallon of H2O daily. Go to the gym at least 6 days this week and ride my bicycle as often as I can after dinner all week, sleep at least 8 hours per night every night this week and hope that its enough to kick me back into high gear so that I can continue to see lower numbers each week on my gravity interpretation device. I felt good yesterday at the gym and only stopped because I needed to get back home, I was over on calories by about 100 yesterday but I am not worried about it at all because of whats in store for my body this week.

Its going to be an interesting ride for the next few days and into the end of the week but I am going to be expecting a new low weight come Friday and I am honestly going to expect a HUGE drop in weight this week as I beat the fat into submission. I can taste sub 300 pounds, I can see it around the bend, and I have a strong feeling that it won't be too long before its what I see on the scale and with that the end has come to this episode of......yeah, make sure to check in tomorrow as I am planning on blogging through the weekend this time around.

  7. Scale reading beginning with a "2" is so right around the corner for you!

    Can't wait to see the results of your bike challenge - what's the farthest you've ridden it to date?

  8. Great post... as usual.

    Keeping 200lbs off for over a year is a HUGE accomplishment. You have a great attitude when it comes to your April 1st goal of 300 lbs.... yes you're probably not going to hit it, but instead of just rolling with the punches, you're going for broke...... that's AWESOME.

    Have a great week.

  9. Sean, I mentioned you today in my new blog. You've been an inspiration to me and helped me to see the light. My new scales are on the way as we speak. Please stop by. Thank you for everything you've done for me.

  11. OMG. I can't believe I did that. Well, actually I can. hehehe :) I read you both daily and check back upteen times a day. Anyhow, the scales came and I'm not happy. I had the same scales you have now and they don't seem to be accurate. I'm going to investigate my warranty or get another set of these. However! the new ones I got weighed me at 88.8 pounds. While flattering, I cant have that much inaccuracy. Weighed hubby in at a ridiculous number too and the capacity exceeds my need. So i'm sending them back. Take care. www.411gurl.blogspot.com
