The weather is really bad here this week. Looks like rain for at least the next 10 days. I am just not going to ride in that. So...

3 trainer rides this week. Each for as long as I can stand it. I'm going to shoot for 2 hours today, or an entire Giro d'Italia DVD (3 came in the set). I think it should be a little short of 2 hours. Today I'd like to watch disc 2 and Wed disc 3.

Gotta drink more water. And continue to manage portions.

Most importantly, I'm going to really enjoy kid time on Christmas morning!

Goals for Lucky week 13

1) Keep wt. under 165. My original goal was to keep under 166 for the holidays but since I dipped below 165 I'll aim to stay there.

2) Attempt a 40 mile ride. I'm going to do the Mt. Lemmon rt (18 ish) do a break at home and then go for the snake bridge, expecting to turn around near the 10 mile mark. The bridge is 15 miles from home. Attempt is the operative word in this goal, btw.

3) Do 2 or 3 exercise videos with hand wts. I've had 3 as my goal for the past two weeks and have only managed to do 2.

246. Down 1 lb. from last week, up 2 lbs. from two weeks ago. The weather has sucked in L.A. and it has rained on my last four days off. I'm hoping to get a 40 miler in tomorrow and take that next pount or two off. At least I'm surviving the holidays without gaining a lot.

Don't gain. Don't have the slightest idea how I will accomplish that this week.

Sorry I havent been on lately, with my college screwing me over, my job giving me more hours, and my computer finally saying capute....Not much time to be online. I weighed myself today and I am only 1 pound away from my first goal of 200 lb. and then onto the next goal....185!

Ride 15 miles in the morning
At night jump on the trainer (in front of the TV, lol) and ride for a complete show
hit the gym for upper body strength (where most of my fat is located)
stop eating after 6:30 and get to bed by 11pm.

215.6. Not even sure how that was possible the week of Christmas! That's 3 lbs! More than I've ever lost in a week. Maybe it was all that sleep.

I'm away from my scale while I'm home for the holidays. I'll be back weighing in (hopefully with a lower weight!) next Monday.

Week 13 check in:

164.00 lbs. Down a little and that's ok!

2 rides of 20 and a few miles. Didn't go for the 40 in my goal but since 20+20 = 40 it's close enough!

2 exercise videos with weights.

OK GUYS_ This is it! The last week for our 2008 Biggest Loser - so be sure and come on in and post your ending weight on Monday!!

What still not skinny minny? or where you want to be...me either! But alas we can do this again - see the New Biggest Loser Threads starting on Monday 1/5/2009. We will continue our quest!

Let me know if you are joining us because i only have a bunch so far....
So for 2009 we have the following people - or at least these are the ones that voted.

DorsalPhin, Firedog, JoelS, JoeMetal, luxroadie, MichaelL, peter584, rayfrady, Redskin8006, theone29, VA_Esquire

We are a gentle crowd - all we ask is you weigh in once a week - and state some goals for the week - sometimes mine are real gentle - lose 1 pound.. and get off my butt! You'll see - ok....

Look for the new post - and don't eat tonight so you can have a great final 08 weigh in. Personally I have not done so well lately (but stilll not up too badly!) So I am happy with that. I have loved being with y'all riding, posting, riding and hopping on the treadmill. I am hoping in 09 I shed another 40 pounds...though I am pretty happy where I am thanks to this new way of life...and am having an awesome time riding my bike!


OK LAST CHANCE WORKOUT _ STARTING NOW>>>> :treadmill:
LAST CHANCE WEIGH IN TOMORROW :champ2:
BEGINNING WEIGH IN FOR 2009 TOMORROW :cool:

I am joining. I went up during biggest loser 2008, due to what I can surmise has been my continual illness over the past 10 days. I dont care, i know its temporary and I am ready to kick butt today on the treadmill and later this week on the bike.

My scale doesn't go high enough. Last I looked, on an airport baggage scale, I was 320 or so. That was a few months ago, and I feel fatter, if anything. I guess I oughta join, though I'll have to upgrade my scale.
