Default After 3 months of tireless workouts...

I'm done. I didn't win the weight loss competition, but I dropped 25lbs in 3 months. This was all a huge bet, 20 friends went in on for our cruise next week.
My buddy lost 40lbs! He did start a tad higher than I did (210 vs 189).

I debated showing pics, I don't want people to think im a horn blowing douche, but toot toot.

This was meant to be in the style of those ridiculous weight loss commercial before and after pics. And at 40 I can honestly say I feel ten times better than I did before. Now to try to maintain. And yes the toilet was left up on purpose.

Demi Moore would like to hear about your hip-slimming secrets.

Kudos. That right there is a job well done. I'm impressed by the transformation of the abdominals. What did you do there?

Congrats.

Seriously, not much. Everyone has those, their just buried under a layer or two of fat. Abs was my least worked out body part. And lots of veggies helps.

Nope. It's called no fast food, and lift weights 5 times a week and cardio 2-3 times. Basically a low fat high protein diet. I eat 6 times a day.

Oh boy. I cut it a lot. I allow myself cheat weekends, stay strict during the week and hit it hard on the weekends. The occasional pint won't hurt during the week. Actually once you get your metabolism up, you can get away with a lot. Never more than 2 once or twice during the week, is how I did it.

Excellent job...not easy to do. I've been going to the gym 4 times a week for almost a year now and still cannot lose the layer or two of flab. I am just starting to read up on dieting and eating properly...I am eating way too little and only a couple of times a day...basically slowing my metabolism waaaay down.

Hope to get similar results by summer!

Congrats,

Mike.

I am towing the same line brother. So far, 27 pounds in 3 or 4 months. Started at over 225 and am down to 198 with another 30 or 40 to lose.

I am cheating tho'. Levothyroxine at 100mcg per day. Good diet. And little excercise.

I started with P90X but, that sh!t is insane.
