Congrats Jacqui! Santa giveth and also taketh away (the pounds.) Are we going to need a smaller RGDT soon? sly.gif

I just hope I get through this Christmas without too much damage on the scale. Damn Christmas cookies. (and cheesecake and meat pie and more cookies and cake and ham and more cookies.....)


Yeah, Christmas is rough. Tamales are a tradition Christmas food in Texas (which of course we got from Mexico). We got a couple dozen from Mrs. Chamber's co-worker. And these are real tamales. As in, they are made with lard. I just polished some off. So bad, yet so good.

Good thing we got a Wii Fit as well.

Bah, Christmas sweets and chocolates and the like are always going to be everywhere I go, and it was the case again this year.

I love eating and I love chocolate just as much as exercising so I'm going to scarf good stuff up especially around the holidays. Got to enjoy the foods I like.

My only problem right now is I've started getting into eating sour cream chips again. Baked so they are a little more "healthier" (biggrin.gif), but damn they are tasty. Need to stop buying these from the grocery store.

I put on some holiday weight as well but nothing astronomically terrible, just want to lose about 5 pounds or so, but am in no rush to do it since I know I will eventually since holiday eating and holiday chaos in general is now over and I'll be getting back to working out more consistently now that it is over.

Well, time for the post-holiday report. While I did overindulge at some points over the holidays, I came out the other side okay. Since I was on holiday break from work for two weeks, I also didn't end up getting up early most days to do my exercise routine, so the most exercise I got was really shoveling snow and moving boxes upon boxes into the house.

So, for a small snapshot:
December 15: 171.5 lbs
January 5: 166.75 lbs

It's a far cry from the 229 lbs I started at, that's for sure.

Congrats Edi! I only lost half a pound during the entire time and my weight is now at one place, no gain no loss. It's ok though smile.gif I didn't overindulge! WHOOHOOO!!!

Lovely stuff edi, much congrats.

Today I ran in a 9K (5.6 mile) race that went through one of New Orleans' more historic neighborhoods and ending up at Jackson Square in the French Quarter. I ran it in 50:25, but wasn't really satisfied as I wanted to try to run it in 48 minutes or better.

I guess the good part is that I still had plenty of steam left running towards the end of the race after around 5 miles and I was passing up people left and right. I just hate in races like this though where I think I keep a decent pace but it is still slow, and not knowing when to pick my pace up early enough to where I still have enough energy and stuff to cut some time off the final result.

Couldn't complain about the weather whatsoever for it. Was about 50 degrees throughout and overcast, loved it.

Here is some more info on it.

Just wanted to post my weight tracker from The Daily Plate. The time frame in the image is from when I started this whole weight loss thing (July 17th) through today. It's just amazing to look at and realize how far I've come.

Edi that's awesome smile.gif I think the most amazing progress is looking in the mirror smile.gif and the fact that two nights ago I put on a junior sized jean to wear to the game at the Stapler! smile.gif WOW!!! I can't believe it! Just a little left to go. I'm sort of simmering around the weight I've lost however, I've noticed the muscle change etc which is also helping me feel and look thinner smile.gif I love it!

Well, since I think I've pretty much hit my goals - massive weight loss, 'normal' BMI, etc. - and am pretty much at a point where I just maintain my weight now, it's time for the before and after pictures.

First picture is from my wedding reception, May 2006. I weighed anywhere between 230 - 245 lbs here, wearing a size 38 or 40 in pants and XL shirts:


And this picture was taken this morning before work (in my still-mostly-unpacked office) at a weight of 159 lbs, size 32 jeans, medium shirt:


Word, yo.

Damn edi, you are almost down to my weight! That's awesome man.

I got an e-mail today which made me giggle a bit. I ran in a 10K race last weekend in nearby Baton Rouge about an hour or so from the New Orleans area and apparently have some running photos of myself in it. One of them was a terrible attempt of me trying to wave at the camera like a goober. tongue.gif





Can't really complain about my results though considering how nuts things have been down here lately and me not running/exercising as much. I ran 10K/6.2 miles in 54:15, roughly an 8:45 pace/mile. I placed 265th out of over 800 racers, so I finished in the upper 3rd. smile.gif

Great job to Edi, SWF and Jacqui!! You guys have done great. smile.gif

I'm still training for a 25K. Last week I had a horrible week, every run I just felt like crap. This week has been much better. 12 more weeks of training and hopefully I won't collapse during the race.
And I wonder
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again

that is awesome, Jack! thumbup.gif

You do not look like a goober, either. Everyone is doing so good, I am proud of all of you here. I am still hitting the gym and getting stronger, still losing but slower now, which is OK. I have to safety pin my work slacks, since I am now a 6 or 8 instead of the 10-12 I was 8 months ago. Works for me.

I am holding out for warmer weather to buy new clothes. smile.gif

edi puts me to shame, but I'm still pretty happy with where I'm at: I just, this past week, made it below 170 pounds, which is territory I haven't been to in about seven years.

If I stay below 170 for another week, my reward to myself, as planned, is a big-ass Meat Lover's pizza with stuffed crust from Pizza Hut. Mmmmmmmmmmmm I love those things.

Thought I'd join the club here, you know, just to keep on track. From last summer being around 270 to now being a trim(er) 229. These last 29 seem to be the friggen hardest! No one particularly says I'm "fat" or "heavy", but I guess they don't see the same mirror I do in the morning. When you have been overwieght for most of your life starting from say.. 8 years old, it can be hard to change that image or thought that you can be thin, or, no matter how much you lose, it still feels all there. Anyone else have this problem?

Sorry I have not been able to read all 29 pages, but I congratulate everyone on their success no matter how small the victory! Hopefully, this will kinda help me kick this last bit in the ass and get it gone for good! Don't think it should be hard by summer, or at least mid-summer.

Thanks all!
