Still no more weight lose. Finished my 2nd tri today, and cut my time by 28 min, on a course that was considerably more hilly than the first one. Really gonna have to start working on my transition from the bike to running. It takes me about 2 miles into the run before I start to feel normal running again.

I'm closing in on 20lbs lost. Its not as much as I would have liked to have lost but the scale is moving in the right direction. If I can make it to 220lbs from starting at 250lbs I'll be pleased. Especially if I can tell a difference in my before and after pics.

No change here. Stable at 25lbs lost. Personal/Work issues continuing to kick me in the crotch, and my workout buddy and I got taken down on our during-work workouts, so that's fucked up my workout schedule like a mofo. Still feelin' good about the progress I've made so far, still chuggin' water and eating as well as I can. I'll get there some day, and I never expected to turn into Mr. Olympia in 3 months so, it's all good.

25 lbs lost in 3 months sounds pretty good to me. I'm shooting for 30lbs at the end of this thing but I'll likely get to 25lbs as well. Getting older sucks, weight just doesn't go away as fast. And seeing the damn marks from the tiger claw attacks don't help either.

the rules have not changed. Final pics will be sent in with proof of date and you will judge from both sets of pics. Looks like you may have about 5 or so finish to judge from.

These last few weeks of tests, projects, and finals have killed my workouts...It's a struggle to lift 2 days a week, and even then the workouts suck when only sleeping about 5 nights a week...but no excuses...haha.

On the other hand I have found a new strategy that will assure my victory over you scrubs!

Been following the progress and even though not participating I've been in my own contest since my 20 year high school reunion is coming up in October.
I haven't lost shit for weight. I think right around 13lbs. Since I started over 2 months ago however I'm lifting more than I was 20 years ago and now I'm sporting a sag on a pair of shorts that used to be the tightest pair. Even though I'm not seeing any weight loss which is disappointing in a way I'm going to stay the course since I am seeing strength results.

You're losing fat and gaining muscle, therefore your weight is staying the same while you're leaning up. That's awsome really. Good work bro...

I'm not competing but I have lost 24 pounds in 6 days. I'm hoping the last 24 pounds will come off easily too. LOL!

Good luck to everyone in this thing. I can't wait to see how everyone has done!

Much appreciated. What's frustrating is fat loss results are much quicker than it is to obtain then muscle. Over the years when I would train regularly before I would do stupid shit like lift and then not eat. Sure I'd lose the fat quick, but I would not gain one bit of strength. I never wanted to change this for fear of eating too much for what I was exerting. Now that I'm old and married I figured I'd go a different route and it seems to be working... just sloooowwwly.

Well, I'm not quite down to my overall goal, and I haven't stepped on a scale since I broke 200lbs, but the mirror tells me that I'm down another pound or two. My strength is finally being affected at this point, and I'm kinda lookin' forward to hittin' Galveston next week, and forgetting that gyms and chicken breasts even exist.

The upside is that my cardio is consistent, and my stamina is getting longer, so after my respite I'll be primed to kick it into over-drive, and drop well into single digit bodyfat. Keep in mind that though the contest is coming to a close, that doesn't mean that you're "done". Getting/staying in shape is a life long commitment.

Well, curiosity got to me this morning, and I stepped on the scale after my morning jog. I'm down to 194lbs from a starting weight of 219lbs. That's 25lbs total, damn I was a fatass. heh I'm still not "done", as my immediate goal is to come back from vacation under 200lbs (I am sooo ready to eat), and the end goal being to end up a little leaner than I am now, at 200lbs. If I can keep from blowing up over the winter as usual, and just do a lean bulk, I think I can get there by next summer, if not a little sooner.

Y'all ready to take those after pics yet...

Mine is going to look pretty much the same. I was hoping for a 30lb loss but I'll be lucky to hit 20-25lbs. Its been great motivation to though so I'll change a bit in my routine and see if it helps out. Maybe in July, I'll be taking my shirt off.

25lbs will be more noticable then you think. I'd be suprised if 10 people even turned in their final pics so you may just get you some free supplements out of the deal.

Start cutting down on your carbs even more if you havent already.

I've been running my ass off 4-6 times a week for over a month, but as I said in the other thread, I had it to lose and you didn't.

I'm gonna try to get some pics taken tonight and uploaded, as I'm not sure if I'll have net down on the beach. If I don't and you've gotta get the judging done I understand, you're the one ponying up the prizes. Hopefully I'll have the web though, and it won't be an issue.
