Again with the Weight Loss.

I've committed to this challenge: Lose 10% (or more) of my body weight from January 1 through April 10. I'm shooting for 20 pounds, which would put me at more than 10% and right about where i would like to be for cycling. Here's what i'll need to do.

  • Eat a reasonable, high protein breakfast. (Check: I'm doing this already)
  • Eat 4 or more small, well balanced meals everyday.
  • Stop eating snacks outside of meals
  • Exercise more consistently (i'm regularly doing 2-3 times a week)
    • 4-6 times a week
    • 35 minutes or more
    • High intensity
    • Some strength training (core, probably)
  • Avoid my "traps"
    • eating office chocolate (you know, those little chocolatey treats that are always around the office? Well, that's probably an extra 100-200 calories a day, probably 20K+ a year
    • Eating on the way home from work (stress eating? )
    • Eating desserts
    • Late night eating

I know what to do. I just have to do it. And, a $500 bounty is worth it.

  1. Are you posting results, etc for accountability? My problem is not doing what I’ve resolved to do to lose the weight. I hung a (tasteful) whiteboard in my kitchen to chart my weight (Sunday mornings), date and duration of exercise. It’s there for my wife,kids, in-laws and guests to see. It’s pretty ugly to see no matter the marker color. To fight my family history of diabetes and heart disease I plan to use some of your suggestions and harsh accountability to drop 20-25lbs by June 2009.
