Hi Folks. I figure I would gauge the fine crowd here. I hate new years resolutions more than anyone but my goal is to get in shape this year. I am a Fatty and imagine maybe a few on here might want to do something about it too. I know it can be easier when you have someone to do it with.

So how about it? Anybody want to join in for a weekly Monday weigh in?

If so post up in here and we can start this Monday. I personally want to go till May and see where I end up. I am going to be doing lots of Walking, Detecting, Eating less and better.:tongue3: I can make a spreadsheet and keep it updated every Monday.

Weekly weigh ins
Honor system
Ends May 1st so 5 months
Support each other.. :D
Hopefully folks take a few pics

Well wager or no wager feel free to join in with a weight everyweek. But the Challenge of the weight loss is way more than a couple bucks for me ;)

I haven't put it into % but I want to drop 85lbs.

Put that 85 pounds into a percentage of your weight today and I'll have a friendly contest with you (in percentages) though it will take me the entire year to achieve my goal; IF I stay with the program.

You got moral support jackalope.:thumbsup: Don't forget hunting for stone artifacts. Sometimes I'll pull off the road and get myself so focused in doing that and before I know it I'm miles from where I parked the truck. Then I gotta walk all the way back.

My wife lost a lot of weight in 2017, and I'll be darned if I didn't find most of it. :icon_scratch:

I too would like/need to drop a few pounds. Lots of water as stated earlier and I gifted myself a Nutri Ninja smoothy machine to make morning fruit drinks and lunch veggie drinks instead of the crap that I usually eat. Also, trying to drop bread and pasta. I am not a competition type but may join in.

Oh man, where was this 2 years ago when I weighed 260? Oh well, I've been off my diet for a couple months and barely exercised this month so I will be starting up again Jan 1. Scared to step on the scale! Lets do this.

I need to loose weight, but probably won't. Bad heart makes exercise pert near impossible. I've already cut way back on the food, but don't seem to loose weight without the exercise.

After my second divorce I lost it mentally, became "passively suicidal," and blew up to 432-lbs. After I got my mental stuff back together, I managed to lose 182-lbs, in two years. I started walking, on the high school track at first (I actually had to build up my stamina to complete four-laps/ 1-mile!), and then I put a couple of hills into my routine. At my peak, I was walking four-times a week, 3-4 miles per walk. All was going well until I had a heart attack, and had three-stents placed in my coronary arteries. I got paranoid and stopped walking. I went from 250, to 275-lbs almost overnight!

Long story a little shorter, two heart attacks later I now have 12-stents, and I'm at 279-lbs. I'm in! My goal is 250-lbs. Let's Do This!:headbang:

I’m in!
In 2005 I lost 40 pounds so I could return to surfing and used Power 90 daily. One thing that helped me was to jump start my metabolism by eating a banana within one hour of waking up so any movement burned calories from fat and not muscle. I got down to 160 lbs.
Fast forward to now and I have gained all of that back and with the onset of arthritis I can’t exercise like I once did, so it’s walking for me and adjusting my calories to get fit.
I have to do this because my daughter is getting married and I don’t want to roll down the isle. Lol!

Anybody that needs it can come on over and I'll put you on the hard arse weight loss system I developed.First step is 1...No food allowed while youre here.Step 2....Youre going to work.Now Im not talking about your candy arse 8 hour day,youre going to work until I tell you to stop.No breaks here and,whats a lunch hour.Forget it.Step 3....Youre going for a walk.Not just any walk mind you.Youll be taking the route Rogers Ranger took on their hike to St.Francis.But youll carry something they didnt,an 80 pound skin divers weight belt.Youll actually get to eat on this trip,lettuce and ritz crackers,I know that got your attention,nice crisp lettuce and golden ritz crackers hmmm.Step 4....Youre going on a jog.But theres a catch.I,ll drive and you jog behind me but,my tow strap is going to be tied around your waist.Now I know what your thinking but its there for an incentive.I just hope you can yell louder than im playing my stereo,dont fall down.Ok whose going to sign up any takers,I guarantee youll lose 50 pounds a week.

Wow, Looks like we have some motivated people here!! Looking forward to doing this.

I myself have never had any issues with losing weight if needed but it really got bad for me in 2007 when I blew my knee out in a motocross race. Before the knee I was so physically active with the Motocross practice, races and so on it didn't matter what I ate I always stayed in fairly good shape. Burning lots of calories a week

Now that I haven't done anything in years I am 6'2" and 333 a couple mornings ago. Even being as fat as I am I still have good blood pressure and blood sugar but my cholesterol is very high.

I know if I don't change my ways though the others will go the wrong way so it is time to start doing things right!! Thanks for Joining in folks. I wish you all well in this..

About 6 years ago I was at 6'2" and 295. Lost 90 LBS in 6 months with a mostly plant based diet and walking daily (sometimes twice) up hills and also quit drinking beer. I like a brisk walk up hills since it gets your heart rate up but it's still easy on the joints. I usually gain a few pounds come winter but it sheds quickly come spring. Would have been great to get in on this back then. I was a determined SOB !
