In order to keep the Fat Boy Challenge thread from becoming cluttered, MTBR member Sinker suggested a weigh in thread. Well, here it is. I will start

01/07/2008-286 lbs

01/14/2008-282 lbs

Lets update every Monday if possible so that we can track our progress and post our achievements and weight loss:D

I don't really thinks is good enough for me though because I can vary this from week to week. I need to get down to 210 b4 it starts to matter
1/21/08 216 lbs
1/28 213 again
I've been trying but hurt myself trying to snowboard after the 14th and then last week I got sick so that slowed me down. I am going to try and take things a little easier this week, but be persistent and try not to hurt myself doing something new.

I have decided to only weigh myself on the 1st of each month. This should help smooth out the natural highs/low's of weekly/daily fluctuations in weight.

I will come back and post my monthly totals.

Jan 1st, 2008: 246.5lbs
Feb 1st, 2008: 236.5lbs (10 Lost)

March 1st, 2008 GOAL: 226.5

Update Feb 1st, 2008:
I choose to weigh in monthly to counter the effect of water/etc weight fluctuations, and the natural 3-5 pound swings we'll have in weight to due when we had dinner vs taking a "load" off, etc. I feel confident this month's 10pound loss was a legitmate "FAT LOSS".... I didn't change anything, except eating healthier. In fact, I hadn't opened the bomb-bay doors in a day and a half when I weighed in this morning, and I'm certain that would been good for another pound or so. But 2+lbs of FAT per week is astounding. Obviously I could lose 10 "pounds" in 24hrs, but that type of loss is not what I'm looking for. I'm fairly pleased with Month #1 results.

I will update in a month! Keep up the good work guys!

Monday morning weigh in

I am keeping up with bike miles as well as weight. 6' 4" and 48 years old. Shooting for 220 lbs and 1000 miles (in the dirt) by the end of this year. I would like to lose 3-4 lbs a month and average 80 miles in the dirt.

01/01/08 262 lbs 0 miles on odometer (new from Christmas)
01/07/08 261 lbs 11 miles
01/14/08 258 lbs 42 miles
01/21/09 259 lbs 42 miles
01/28/08 257 lbs 63 miles

Was a better week. I have tried to watch my eating, but at this point it is pretty clear to me......more miles on the bike = less pounds on the scale.

Ok, here goes:
01/01/08: 222
14/01/08: 215
So far, I'm really happy with my progress, but I've been here before, dropped a bit of weight quickly, and then flattened out and not lost any more. The next couple of weeks will be "interesting", as I'll be away from my bike for a week, and not be exercising as much.

28/01/08: 216
No surprise, I was expecting this to happen, and it did. Still, given that I've done no exercise at all for the last week, I'm not unhappy with the way things are going. I'm still on track to be under 200 by June/July.

04/02/08: 211
Big loss this week, due mostly to the 50km race I rode in yesterday. Still, if I can keep a pound or two off, I'll be happy...

My goal is to be below 200 by years end. Last year I weighed 255# and got down to 220# before an injury and the holidays got me off track.
Slowly but surely I'm getting there.

Good job guys, lets all report back in every Monday morning......we could edit our post and update or simply post another thread. Editing may work better since we could really track the progress each of us makes......I wish all of you the best of luck

Saturday Morning weigh in for me.

I weigh myself after my Saturday workout because it is the longest of the week, kinda my "last chance" workout for those that watch "The Biggest Loser" which I highly recommend as it is very motivational. Anyway, I am back on track after the holidays, I've been dropping about two pounds a week since the new year.
1.5.08 - 209 pounds
1.12.08 - 207.4 pounds
1.19.08 - 205.4 pounds
190 is my goal which I plan on reaching by April 1, so thats 1.5 pounds a week. I think it is only going to get harder to lose weight as I get closer to 190.
