    Lose 1 pound. Commute by bike all five days, freezing rain be damned. Gym 4 times. Coming up are the 2 busiest weeks in my memory, so mostly I don't want to backslide more than I did last week.

    I'd just like to lose a pound. I don't know how much cycling I'm going to get in. My wife is going on a business trip and I don't have a good sitter for the kids. So for me, it's all about portion control. And I need to be drinking more water.
    -------

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    246, 2 lbs. down from 248 last week, 9 pounds down from 255 about 3 weeks ago. Been doing lots of riding because I've been on vacation. No more vacations in the near future.

    My goals this week are:

    Portion control
    ride as much as possible
    run as many errands as possible on a bicycle

    I don't drink lots of water, because I work in live television. You can't drink a lot of water if you work in live television. I'll let you figure out why.

    Goals for the week, same as last week except for the weight.
    1) Current Weight: 252.6, Goal Weight: 251
    2) Commute to Work 1 day this week.
    3) 10 miles on the bike
    4) Spinning class on Wed. and one other gym visit.
    5) Cut smoking to 6-7 per day.

    It would be nice to see the 240's again at the end of this week, but I think that would be unreasonable, and I don't want to push myself too hard.

    Good luck this week to everyone.

    Goals for week 10:

    1) Lose @ 1 lb.
    2) Ride a local bike path without concern about mileage or speed
    3) Do 3 exercise videos

    That should do it for this week. Luckily the holiday food doesn't start showning up for another week or so.

    Goals:
    1. Drink lots of water or non-sweetened iced tea...at least 60oz. a day.
    2. Continue commuting to work on cross bike...start riding the beach cruiser anywhere I need to go within 5 miles.
    3. Stay away from red meat and (Edit....) stay away from Nutella all together...because I just can't stop myself.
    4. Fill up on salad and veggies as much as possible before eating the normal dinner.

    MissBumble, I am doing better, thank you for the condolences. Pictures will be posted ASAP.

    I want to lose 2lbs this week I will do it by getting in an hour's worth of exercise a day, eating less sweets, eating more salads, I've managed to cut my coffee consumption a lot these past few weeks so I'll keep that up -- no more than 3 cups of coffee this week.

    Goal this week is simply to continue monitoring food intake through The Daily Plate in order to lose approximately 1.5 pounds per week.

    Its called the Couch to 5K program. It's a program that will get you from no running what-so-ever (hence the couch part) to running a 5k in 9 weeks. I also have podcasts that do the interval training with music, so it tells you when to switch from walking to running and stuff. Its actually quite fun and doesn't work you too hard, but enough to get you used to the idea of running. http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_3/181.shtml

    Whoops, I lost track of this for a few weeks. Luckily, I haven't lost track of my weight.

    I was at 272.0 on monday 12/1. Guess I should post that in the week 9 thread?

    Yesterday I signed up for a gym and I got a personal trainer and did a session, and this morning I did a spin class. I'm trying to get stuff back on track.

    My goals are now:
    1) Do four days at the gym in a week, including 2 spin classes
    2) Maintain a 2500 calorie diet
    3) No high frutcose corn syrup at all

    My problem is uneven food intake. some meals i do great, some less so, and it costs me. Did 10 miles on the bike and 20 minutes on the treadmill and a few late night crackers with cheese killed most of the loss for the day. Granted it might come off tomorrow but I need to keep working.

    No alcohol or cigars until Christmas Eve. Begin serving pasta and rice only as part of mixed meals where the veggies and protein served "out-volume" the carbs portion.

    Cressey Week 10-11; begin researching a follow-up strength training routine that relies on less volume for the 16 weeks following Cressey.

    Ride outside Saturday before the rain moves in.
