    Okay, if you want to join in. Log in this week, on this thread with:

    Current Weight
    Goal for 12/31/06

    If I reach my goal by year’s end, and there are those that want to run at it again, I’ll stay with it.

    Now 168
    12/31/06 – 160

    I have been trying to eat right and exercising for what seems forever. My one vice is having a bowl of ice cream at night. These last eight pounds I think are going to take a little bit of time and less ice cream. I think I am more prepared for Colorado this year than other years. Years past it was hunt hard for 2/3 days and then poop out.

    Now 260… :-S
    Goal: Dont really want to set a goal, I’d like to get down to below 200 eventually. But that will be well beyond the end of the year!

    Hey bud you gotta start somewhere :thumbup
    Take it in smaller chunks say 230 by the end of the year. I set weekly goals and concentrate on making them reality and before long youve met your long term goal.

    Even 5 lbs a month can be challenging after the first one or two. So keep your goals realistic. What you have to do is figure out what it takes to achieve your goal, and see if it’s worth the cost. If you go through that process thoughtfully, and after some reflection determine the goal is worth the cost, schedule it, and you’ll get it done :thumbup But it’s got to be your goal, not somebody elses, and it’s got to be worth the price.

    Now: 255 (Don’t have a scale and thats what I weighed in at a couple of weeks ago, close enough?)
    12/31/06: 225 (Think I can afford to lose more but try to lose this then go from there.)

    Does anyone have any good diet/exercise plans out there they could post up? I have tried making my own diet plan but get comfused when it says have so many of this and so many of that, etc. etc. Thanks

    I would like to be at about 200 or 210 by December. I have been looking at some sensible ways to alter my eating habbits so I hope that is going to help with losing some weight.

    Here is an online body fat calculator…
    http://www.he.net/~zone/prothd2.html

    I dont know my waist size (i’m at work, but guessing) So according to this, I have 41% body fat and need to get to 176 lbs! Yikes! But I couldnt agree more!
    I did Atkins a couple years ago, and lost 70lbs and I walked a LOT! But I gained it all beck, Atkins was killing my innerds, and I cant help thinking that that diet was plain bad. So it’s gonna be cereal in the morning, lots of fruit during the day, maybe tuna at lunch, and a normal sized meal at dinner. and back to the gym. However this is gonna be rough with hunting season on the doorstep! (See i’m already making excuses!) :D
