Biggest Loser

We are going to start the biggest loser at work on January 1st.  I am going to take my second serious shot at weight loss.  Last time I did great for almost a year, I had lost 46lbs and over the last year I have found each and every one of them, plus three.  During this time, I would like to loose 30+ lbs but my overall goal will be to loose 55-60 lbs.  Even better, just a healthier lifestyle and a longer life.  

In the pursuit of this goal, I will need your help.  I will have my work family to hold me accountable while I am there, I will need all of you for the rest of the time.  I am going to post my weight every Monday on the blog, if I don't post call me out, make me.  If I step out in your presence, call me on it.  I will not take offense because I know you have the best intentions for my well being.  Other than that, if you have any tips, want to do something athletic or healthy, please include me.  I don't like to exercise for the sake of exercise, but I do love playing sports, riding my bike, all that junk that has a purpose.  So if I accidentally work out, then awesome!!!

That is all I ask of you.  This should be a lot of fun!  I loved the way I felt about myself when I was 49 lbs thinner than now, I look forward to feeling that way again.

I was in the best shape of my life boxing. Boxing is awesome, specifically if you are trainning for an ameatur fight (adults fight this way), because you get a goal, something other than running on a treadmill or lifting weights for no reason. If you don't meet your goal, you get punched in the face. Talk about motivation!! Check out my ol' boxing gym - You can help out the kids and train with them side by side.

You can do it! Check out "Rocky IV" this week on AMC for tips on a no-cost training program! Sly mushes like a dog hooked to a sled, he lifts heavy rocks, he chops wood for goodness sake! If he can beat the Rusky with that regim, you can find a way to kick 40lb's off!
