Talking progress

Okay, I have been alcohol free for one year That's the longest I have ever been on the wagon. In the past year and half, I have lost 40 lbs, dropped 2 pant sizes, you can see my abs again I have increased definetion in my arms and shoulder. I have started weight training, just twice a week, the goal is to have more of a "V" shape. My workouts are cycling between one week (6 days) light workout and one week of heavy workout. I still watch my carb intake, trying to keep it to 65 net carbs a day, and taking 80% of those carbs before noon. I still try to not take food in after 6PM.

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

I'm pushing away from the table after 1st helping and trying to get in at least 4-5 workouts a week (swimming b-ball and racquetball) and am down about 10lbs since Dec. Goal is to be 185 and I have about 15 more to go. Just can't seem to give up the wine and beer tho...

Looks like we're on the same workout plan. Just remember, if you're drinking too much of the wrong booze, find the right booze and drink too much of that. Much better for your system. Oh yeah, you also have to memorize the first line of my sig.

Tony, that isn't even funny My wake up call was watching a friend (42) have a massive heart attack, I knew he was dead before he hit the ground At least you quit smoking, try the Wendy's salads for lunch, they are pretty good. One think I noticed from quitting booze, I sleep better

I have kinda followed Ricks thought pattern, my largest meal is breakfast, I eat my last meal before 6PM and I work out 3 times a week, running 2 miles and upper body weights. I have lost 15 pounds in those 3 months, the next 15 is going to be much harder to loose, but thats what I get for wanting to be 185 while being 6'2".

My BMI is 25, my body fat is 13%, I want the body fat to drop to 11%.

Actually Chris the litter Fizzer (with 15/45 sprockets) and me weighing in at 190, hit 150 MPH, according to the GPS on the bike, then the Minnesota Police rained all over little parade (David, Brian and Myself) Now with 14/45 sprockets and me weighing 155, I can only hit 132, but in both cases I need a long run to hit those speeds.

Whoops, I just saw this. Don't bother answering on the Old Guy thread.

It sucks when you start seeing guys you know start dropping. A competitor of mine just kicked standing outside a hotel downtown a few months ago. He just turned 50.

Well, one year booze free and 40 lbs. You are my hero. Now that I'm awake, I think it's time to go do an hour of cardio and then have a beer for you.

Oh, according to my scale I'm at 13.6% and by the end of this summer I want to be down to 11 or less. BMI is flawed and totally full of shit. It is built assuming we are all fat asses. It makes no distinction of muscle or fat. Per BMI Michael Jordan was obese.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Amazing how things can change. for the last few months I have completly changed the way I eat, I am eating all sorts of healthy stuff and have almost 100% stopped drinking. Still gotta have a few as a treat once and a while well I got the result back today, my Cholesteral is down 100 points to 150. I am happy as is my doctor. she says my triglcerideds are still a tad high at 201 but conidering they were over 1000 back in december I'd say thats a vast improvement and I can get those down some more with fish oil pills or just eating fish. Between quiting smoking, drinking, eating healthy and loosing weight I feel like a new man. I never knew I could feel this good. oh ya and I'm almost down two pants sizes. few more pounds to go and I'll be happy.

Go for some salmon, skip the pills. But get it at Trader Joe's or the like. You want the fresh Alaskan stuff, not the farm-raised, color-dyed Jewel crap.

Yes salmon is great, my wife got some from that new Marsch store in naperville the other night and cooked it up. Very tasty.

what elsew I've noticed is after I stopped drinking soda and other sweet stuff, my tasts have changed, I dont need an sugar in my coffee any more as it tasts sweet normally now and I'm down to one cup a day instead fo the whole pot to stay awake.

Yes! Isn't is great to be able to taste food now? I use a little spices here and there, but real food is so much better now.

If I ate a Big Mac I'd probably spit it out now, since it would taste like a greasy turd. (Not that it's any different from a turd anyways....lol)

It's funny that this thread came up. Just to experiment, for the past 10 days I have stopped eating ALL dairy and all but stopped meat intake. I had some chicken, one day for dinner last week. Basically, a Vegan diet.

Man, I feel much better. I have more energy, no acid reflux and no heartburn. Also stopped drinking and drinking soda during this trial period.

I think I'm going to keep this up, but since, I like to do strength training, my concern is protein intake. I may switch my protein shake from whey to soy, to keep the vegetarian kick going.

Too much salt??? maybe water retention? Rice diets arent good for you. Your better off eating veggies, chicken and fish 5 times a day and just small servings, this way you are getting all your nutrients not just starving yourself.

oh dont over do the gatorade either its loaded with salt
