LCVG Drop 8 Tons "contest"


 Share

Recommended Posts

Okay, this challenge is open to anyone and our self-imposed deadline is December 31, 2005.

 

The idea is for us to reach the total as a group -- so if you don't make your target, pray that someone else lost enough to make up for your shortfall. Or consider chopping off a limb.

 

Let's say that August 1 is the deadline to make changes to your declared target.

 

Okay, here're the participants (so far):

 

30 Robot Monkey

25 Whooter

20 Chris the Rock

25 Poison Jam

20 gigapower

?? iCamp

30 Wesvans

20 exile

20 cane corso

35 dobgert

20 Carlucci

25 FutureVoid

30 tiac

20 Thrillho

25 Buck

15 Ringwraith

10 Merlot

30 CaptDS9E

25 Pharmboy

20 Orpheus

15 Ryan FB

30 Brandondragons

30 jubjub75

25 Nightwing

25 SeriousCrayon

30 Darius

10 Hank Scorpio

10 AnthonyVolpe

Damn...too bad we didn't start this last year as I just dropped 50 pounds since November 1 and am now at my target weight. :(

 

That's awesome. Any tips? Did you go on any kind of well-known "diet", or did you just your mind to it?

 

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to hearing about everyone's results. The most exciting thing for me will be hearing my wife tell me she's noticing a difference.

 

I think that most of us who have over 20 pounds to lose and who have some bad habits could lose about a pound per week by tweaking just a couple of things. My plan is to keep up the excercise, drink at least a gallon of water per day, and eat smaller portions.

A few years ago during the time LCVG opened, I lost a lot of weight and then gained it back in no time , and been stuck ever since :bh:bh. I did it mostly drinking lots of water, and eating chicken,salad , vegtables and fruit. Also at the time I did Tae-bo. yep the billy blanks thing. It worked.

 

This time ill eat the same way , but im going to do a range of stuff including weight lifting as my brother bought a bench set. I tried starting last month but couldnt get it going. I decided to start this morning, and then i saw this so Lets get it on

and it means I'm stuck with a dinner of usually crap (pizza, chiplote, Pei Wei etc are our usual staples).

Not necessarily. It's a matter of choice. Noone is stuck with anything.

The best plan I've heard is the following:

 

Exercise 3-4 times a week.

Drink Water alot

Eat 6 times a day(note smaller portions but spread out)

 

My friend is doing the "Body for LIfe" diet. He said he has changed alot. He gets a free day on it which is Friday but because he has changed his attitude towards the plan, his metabolism has forced him to not eat as much on those free days. I plan to purchase the book.
