Since I started my business about 2.5 years ago, I've pretty well quit working out. And since I now spend a lot of time behind the wheel and eating fast food I've managed to get myself to the heaviest I've ever been, 284 pounds. I'm about 6'3".

Starting at 5:30 tomorrow morning, its back to the gym. I'm signed up for a 6 week challenge with the crossfit gym I used to go to. Meal plan and prep is in place. Challenge required a $500 deposit that's refunded or converted to member dues at the end, if you complete and lose 20 pounds over the 6 week period. Basically, I bet myself $500 that I could do this for 6 weeks.

This is going to hurt but I've got to get some weight off!

More power to you! Have you taken the pledge to talk about it constantly?

I lost 5 pounds embarassing myself on an elk hunt last October. I've kept it off so far and shed one or two more pounds. Right now I'm enjoying a cup of detox tea...to be followed by a morning cigar. grin

Go get 'em Doc.

No doubt. I haven't taken the oath to talk about it constantly...yet roflmao

I used to do it regularly but fell off the wagon. The structure of it works for me. If I just go into a gym, I don't get much accomplished. Having a coach and a group setting works for me.

I'm not trying to be a body builder or have abs or anything. Just trying to not weigh 300 pounds by Christmas.

I think you'll drop the 20 pretty easy bud. Just eating right will make it happen quick too. Then add the exercise! Probably 20-30 pounds in those 6 weeks. Good luck and keep us posted!

At 6í3Ē and 284, thatís a little on the rapid side. Losing that much, that quick, is going to include some muscle loss along with the fat.

Weight loss always comes from 3 areas simultaneously - lean muscle mass, fat mass, and water mass. I could send you to the store and tell you what to buy to show a 10# scale weight loss by tomorrow morning. Trouble is you would be up all night and dehydrated tomorrow....

Yes, and the idea is to keep the muscle loss to a minimum. Too fast, and that ainít happening. Weight loss should be fat loss, and it shouldnít be just about what the scale says.

Not at all. I can almost guarantee there's 50# of fat there. A low body fat person that isn't a body builder well weigh around 200.
