Default New Years Weight Loss Plans

Well, back at the office and the New Years Weight Loss plan is now in effect. This will severely affect my libation quaffing. 5 colleagues in my office, and we all have 100 bucks riding on it. The biggest loser is the winner with the largest percentage lost by 4/1/08.

I could use the $500 to buy the new pants that I'll need.

Seriously, it's back to the gym and quaffing only on Saturdays. With my luck, my boss (who is in on it) will send me to Germany for 3 weeks knowing that my self control will completely evaporate.

Who else is looking to shed some poundage?

I need to lose about 20 lbs. I'll be putting the miles in. That's the only way I've ever been able to lose/maintain weight.

I'm with you. I had dropped about 15 pounds early last year, mostly by cutting back on beer and exercising more. Then I got back into brewing full swing...and baby #2 came along...and I've gained back the 15, plus a couple more.

Going skiing next week (which is a terrible place to try to get started) but after that I'm spending more time with my hands on the handlebars, and less on the tap handles.

Me and SWMBO both need to drop 15# or so. We'll get back into running and eat better (less) as well.

SWMBO also wants to reduce her beer consumption. I don't want to cut that out. I'll just cut out all sweets and other junk food instead.

I'm with ya. I'm still trying to get rid of the extra weight I put on when I was having my back problems/surgery and I was unable to exercise and drank way too much beer.

I'm hoping to have made some significant progress by my birthday on 5/1.

I'm on the boat as well. I've got so many other resolutions as well.

I'm quitting smoking starting next week (when I get my prescription for that stop-smoking drug stuff), which will probably net me +10 pounds. I already want to lose at least 20 of my current weight by 5/31, so I'll probably have to do 30 just to keep up!

I drank alot of beer over the past year. So, I've got about 30lbs of beer gut to get rid of. It was fun putting it on. I'm on the wagon for a couple of weeks. That'll drop 5lbs easy. Good luck to everyone else.

Here's my weight loss journal:

Day1: I want a beer real bad!!! Just one, maybe 2. (This was at 8am sitting in a duck blind)
Day2: Whats more important, being fat, or being happy? If I can't have an occasional beer, I'm not happy. Oh well, gotta be healthy to enjoy beer with my sons when they are old enough.
Day3: Pretty soon I can have some beer! Dang I'm hungry.

I started low carb again after gaining back 40 of the 60lbs I previously lost. My incentive is vacation, so I'll hold true, I hope. But drinking only on weekends sucks. And I've never seen my beer fridge so filled!!
