284.4-lbs today on the Wii "empty bucket" weight, I'm not really counting miles or time on the bike, but it's probably somewhere around 40-miles last week. Still loosing slowly and surely. Just keep riding the exercise bike + more fruit & veggies & less meat & fatty/fried foods. The food thing has been what's working for me. Not waiting too long to eat so I don't over-do-it when I finally get to a meal.

OK I'll post again with some added info. First off the Eat Clean Diet is going well even thou it seems like I'm eating to much, the main thing is cutting out all sugar and bad fats. Still use olive oil, also get good fats from flax seed, wheat germ, bee pollen plus tune salmon and other fish. Drinking lots of water the diet also leans toeards high amounts of protien and complex carbs with every meal which is 5-6 a day but small portions, enough of that.
Week one - 230
Week two - 230
Week three - 231
Week four - 226
I actually started on Dec 26th at 240lbs so i've dropped 14lbs! Yeah me.

Weight: sitting at 284
Goals: Drink water, avoid bad snacks, eat fruit for a snack instead, climb stairs, and add more sit-ups to my workout.

I'm still waiting for the balance ball I ordered from Gaiam. I bet some sweaty handed customs officer is touching it. Ick.

This week was a great week! I rode 60 kms which is pretty fantastic considering it's January in Canada. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there will be more mild spells before spring.

Hey! Can I join in?

My weight today (monday 25th jan) is 190lbs

Goal for the week: Cut out the snacks from my diet, drink water instead of sugery drinks/coffee. Generally feel a bit healthier and lose some weight.

Hopefully having to "check in" here will give me a little incentive to work a little harder!

Today: 225.6 lbs.
Goal for the week: "exercise" at least 3 times this week -- could be going to the gym and walking on a treadmill, or walking extra around the neighborhood, etc. Walking to work doesn't count since I do that pretty routinely. Work back up to riding, etc, as healing from surgery permits.

I haven't been paying attention lately. Here is my information for the last three weeks.
01/04/10 282
01/11/10 276
01/18/10 270
01/25/10 265

I have some very large goals this year and those are to no longer be a clyde for the weight as I will always be a clyde because I am 6'3". I am not counting calories, but I am reducing the amount of meat that I am eating and eating more vegetables and fruits. I think the biggest change for me is less swimming and more running. I have gone from swimming everyday M-F, to running 45 minutes on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and swimming on Tuesday and Thursday and possibly a swim on Saturday or Sunday if the pool is available for open swimming.

I ride on rollers as my time allows in the evenings.

I'm down 1 pound this week from 212 to 211. Still doing Fitday log every day, even when I don't have a 'good day'. The best part of the week was Sunday which was mild and I was able to ride. I rode 32 miles which is the farthest I've ever gone! Yay! It was a lot of fun and even more rewarding when I saw how many calories Fitday gave me credit for! Luckily, my appetite didn't go wild after the ride. I can't wait for the days to become longer so i can get out and ride during the week.

Weighed in the doctor's office on 1/13/10 at 292 lbs. Went to see him about the 187/92 BP reading the Sunday before... Caught hell for dx'ing the Lisinopril, so I'm back on it. Blood sugars are great, cholesterol so-so: LDL 102, HDL 34. Didn't get "the lecture", but did get "the look". You know - the one where he's reading your vitals and peers over the top of his glasses disapprovingly, and sighs.

Weight lost since 1/13 = 10 pounds

Goals = Keep a food diary, no soda, eat more fruits and veggies, less meat. Don't drive the family nuts. Don't stress over the minor things.
Exercise 30 min. 3x week
Calorie goal = 1800/day

First of November, 2009: 221.
January 1: 2008
Last week: 2005
Today: 202
Didn't loose any weight from January 2009 through the end of October. November, began a 28 day vegan diet. Lost about 10 pounds, but felt great. So decided to eat vegan when feasible. Since November, have had no meat, no eggs or dairy (except in an occasional piece of pie or cake), no fried foods, no chocolate or soft drinks.
Not using any type of diet plan book. Just googling vegan recipes. I'm not a salad or raw veggie eater, actually causes me some stomach ache. Drinking lots of green and other herbal teas. Morning and afternoon snack, usually something like a banana or piece of whole wheat bread with peanut butter. Subway veggie sandwich when I can, makes a meal and an afternoon snack. Not biking much, due to cold weather, but 3 or 4 days a week, riding my Schwinn Airdyne.
Goal is to be 190 by spring, 175 by summer.

Well, week 2 weight was 258, week 3 - 258, and now week 4....yup - 258. I have been exercising every day, and commuted to work again on the bike several times. Slowly changing my diet habits so I'm not too disgusted yet! Those pounds will start dropping soon, hopefully this week! Hang in there folks, congrats to all so far!

Yesterday morning's weight was 184 lbs. My goal as of Jan 2009, a time when I weighed 227-230 lbs, was to get down to 190 lbs. Definitely achieved it!

My goal for this week is to maintain that sub-185 weight. I am not seeking any additional weight loss, but would not mind cracking the 180 barrier. Focus this week is taking in as little cooked veggie oils and animal fats as possible while still keeping warm and energized during this cold snap called January and February. The high-fat foods I eat the most right now are buffalo, free-range eggs and various raw cheeses. For my sweet tooth, gf cranks out chocolate smoothies blending together raw chocolate powder, a ton of fruit with loads of herbs, all sweetened with honey and dates.....yummy!

What I do not do, or do very rarely: eat beef, chicken, turkey or fast food, I have not touched a cheap sweet like a Snicker's bar or Hershey's thing-a-ma-giggy in years. I dropped eating chips or fries, choosing instead to either bake potato puffs sliced out of real whole potatoes or just eat them baked with my coconut butter.

BTW: Most of the fattening food that I quit eating does not taste very good anyway. I mean it. I would take one of gf's smoothies over a chocolate frosty from Wendy's any day. I most certainly would rather eat a buffalo steak than a filet mignon; or a big salad filled with the finest lettuce, some kale, spinach, chard, tomatoes, red onions, Greek olives and pumpkin seed over a Taco Hell burrito or Burger King Whoper.

And, finally: There is nothing better than getting on the scale after dinner (a time, as history has shown, that my daily weight is at its peak), while fully dressed, and seeing the number hit 2 lbs BELOW your target weight. Last night, when I weighed in at only 188 (even while wearing shoes), I was ecstatic.

228...up 2.5 pounds

Not sure why...I havent been eating as much this past week, and I was on the trainer 4 days. I guess I just have to keep at it. Same goals as last week.

That's keeping your chin up. You'll get there. For me Weight loss/gain is something that rolls like a freight train. I must first stop the momentum forward, before my body chemistry reverses direction.

Last year, it seemed like I couldn't drop weight to save my life. Like you, I'd ride the trainer, cut down on my caloric intake -- basically I starved myself all week and exercised all weekend -- and then hop on the scale Monday morning only to see I gained 2 or 3 pounds. It was very frustrating. However, after a while, and after a lot of sticking-to-it, I eventually noticed the tide shift. At first, i only lost a pound or two, then 5, then 10, and whoa! now I've lost almost 40 in a little under a year.

May I vote for this as Post of the Week? Thanks for reporting in and telling us the detaals. All of it is very impt to me as I am trying to make better choices. Please let me know what is in GF's smoothie??? I need suggestions for food. Today I had a wheat skinny english muffin 110 cals and some Pnut butter and coffee with fat free half and half. Then went and jogged 5 miles. Arrrgh (Slow as a turtle 10:44 pace) Then went and swam for 44minutes or 1500 YDS. So I probably could have used something in between running and swimming, but do not know what to have.

After I had maybe to much pasta and suace and some salad with feta. Low cal Dressing...and a few grapes...and my beloved Diet Coke. So not a great diet - but I am up for suggestions......Tonight I took out a chicken breast and may have it w Brown rice or Potatoe....

I also have a veggie soup I made I wil have in a few hours (Tomatoes, broth, cauliflower, onions, spinach, mushrooms all blended together...makes a think soup.)

OH and if you are new - what does this have to do with Biking???? I am a Triathlete - so it's all about biking. Although the running thing is soooo hard,sometimes I think it's all about that!

I think part of it is getting back into a routine. Last year I lost close to 25 pounds from January to March (unfortunately i gained some of it back) doing almost exactly what im doing now..the only difference being that I was on the trainer every day of the week..plus I was laid off so I had the extra time to dedicate to the trainer. Once I started losing the weight, it was easy to keep myself in a daily routine.

I also have a veggie soup I made I wil have in a few hours (Tomatoes, broth, cauliflower, onions, spinach, mushrooms all blended together...makes a think soup.)

OH and if you are new - what does this have to do with Biking???? I am a Triathlete - so it's all about biking. Although the running thing is soooo hard,sometimes I think it's all about that!
Thanks for the positive feedback. I was not sure at first whether I should post here, but now am glad that I did.

Anyway, let me preface by saying I was not engaged in any intense performance sport while losing 35 to 40 lbs. I worked out, all day sometimes, but not competitively. I lost the bulk of my weight over a nine-month period, most of it during the 6 months I was rehabbing a broken leg.

To answer one of your first questions, MB: New rule number one for me is never to starve myself. I no longer go hungry. So, after your first workout, you definitely need to take in some calories. I usually either drink a smoothie, eat some fruit , squirt down a pkg of Cliff-gel, drink a glass of water with a package of emergen-c in it, whatever, I just don't go hungry anymore. Why?
So that I don't gorge on whatever is in front of me when I finally do sit down to eat.

That for me was the hardest part. Staying properly nourished all day. My new trick is to take down water loaded with those emergen-c packs every morning and evening before and after work. The result: I am never hungry. Last year, while gaining twenty-plus lbs, I was hungry all the time.

Smoothie ingredients: I suggest not getting to in depth here with your first smoothies. At least, hold off getting the Reishe Mushrooms, Jujube, Albizzia flower, and Asparagus root until later. lol.
BUt, I would get a hold of some raw cacao powder, frozen wild blueberries, hemp nut, coconut oil, raw almond butter, Lucuma Powder, some chili peppers (yes, spice up that smoothie), vanilla bean, Cinnamon and Celtic sea salt. I'd throw those items into a powerful blender along with about 16 oz of water, sweeten it all with honey and/or agave nectar, and then relax and enjoy.

Good luck gang and never, never give up.
