    My name's Cory, just got out of job training after a billion years, now looking to get my neglected body back into shape.

    Current weight: 225
    Goal weight: 175
    Goal: 50 lbs
    My plan:
    1) Diet: I'm trying the Isagenix meal replacement, which is a protein shake twice a day, and a weekly cleanse. It's worked for me in the past, just because it lets me control calories without thinking bout it
    2) Exercise: I want to get my endurance up, so I plan to run 3 weekdays and both day on weekends, 2-3 miles. Once I get more conditioned, I'll start up a lifting regiment.
    Short term goal: I'd like to get to goal in 6 months, so that will be 8-10 lbs a month, or 2 lbs a week.

    Here's goes, I'll post next week

    Alrighty! I'm Wade, and it's time I reno'd my bod.


    Weight as of May 6: 252lbs

    Goal weight: 220/225lbs (um, for now...may revise if I do good)

    Plan of attack: Mix P90x with cardio and weight training (i.e. day 1: P90x, day 2: weights...)

    I don't eat horribly, but will tweak that as I go along.

    Last time I tried P90x, I lost 10 lbs in a month so...I hope to reach my goal by the beginning of September. And will post weight weekly (on Mondays).



    Good Luck!

    I don't know how much I'll be able to do, but I'll give a try.

    Name: Jordan

    Current Weight: 155

    Goal Weight 120 (Or somewhere around there)

    To lose: 35lbs

    Diet: I don't have much a say in my diet. Things have been hectic lately, so I just eat whatever I can. (I know, horrible. But I don't have much choice)

    Exercise: I've been working on an 8-week jogging plan. I'm currently on the 4th week. But I'm also trying to work on building some muscle in my arms, unfortunately, I have no equipment.

    Goal: Over the course of the summer (Now till the beginning of September) I'd like to be down to 130-135. I figure 2-3 pounds a week will start adding up. And hopefully by the end of summer, I'll almost be at my goal of getting all excess fat off my body.

    Hmm, not such a great week. Every baby in town was born this week apparently, so I kept getting called into work. Someone I dropped weight, but just out of starvation, cause I was so busy, so I"m not sure it is real weight. :0)

    Current weight: 221
    1) Diet: didnt' stick to the Isagenix very well. I'm going to bring a shake bottle and a can of it to work, so I can keep on schedule when I'm not home.

    2) Exercise: No days. Sad.

    Well I'm off call next week, and plan to stick tighter to the plan.

    Currently 172 lbs...was 180 lbs a couple weeks ago.

    Goal weight: 165 lbs (back to the same look as my 'leanest' RJ pics) within the next two weeks.

    Diet: Paleo
    Exercise: Lifting 2-3x/wk, and mountain biking 4-5 days/wk for 1-3 hours at a time.

    It's worked before, when I lost 70 lbs. Losing 15 lbs should be a cinch.

    This is an eye-opener for me. I kept true to 4x resistance training and missed one cardio (my left leg has some pain).

    Concerning Diet: I just #%$&ed up. Danishes, banana bread... i don't even like banana bread. Come on!
    My portion control got better as the week continued, a thing I find gets out of whack eating out. Luckily i didn't eat out this weekend.

    At least I know that I can't get away with these things and expect results. Thanks accountability! I hope you guys are fairing better.

    My name's Nick, been un-motivated for a while now, and with renewed vigor I'm attacking my fatty cells!


    Current weight: 293
    Goal weight: 225
    Goal: 68 lbs (Started at 318 in February)

    My plan:

    1) Diet: I have gone Gluten (95%) and dairy (85%) free. No fast or fried foods. Daily fresh "green machine" juice I make each morning. And high protein foods, eggs, lean chicken, beans, lots of veggies.... Whole foods, as much as possible.

    2) Exercise: I was running 30 miles a week from Early December 2012 through early Feb 2013. I wasn't seeing much in the way of results. No weight loss and just minimal tightening of things. In February I started doing DDP Yoga hard core. I've lost about 25 pounds and about 18 inches so far. So... I will continue Yoga daily. I do about 1 hours worth a day, 6 days a week. Aside from biking, (and yard work etc) I've given up any exercise that had impact and I feel fantastic.

    3) Goal: I'd like to blink and make this happen, but in reality I believe I will be good by years end. If my will power and work ethic continue at this rate, I'm good to go.

    I've always been a bigger guy, but i'm breaking through those barriers now. Not letting this keep me down any longer. It's empowering, and very addictive.

    Weigh In: 05/13/13 293 lbs

    Ryan.

    I was 190 lbs before and cut it down to 150, now i gained 10 lbs after a year w/o exercise lolol.

    A little belly fat and love handles are my only problems. The rest of my body is good already.

    Sadly or luckily I got a job after my master's and i enrolled again in law school.

    Now I always get home too tired to do any workout.
    Here's hoping for a change

    Current weight: 160
    Goal weight: 135-140
    Goal: 20- 25 lbs

    My plan:
    1) Diet. I eat quite healthy so no problem with that. Maybe I can reduce nibbling on chocolates a bit =P

    2) Exercise: I wanna learn the jump rope. Other cardio. Resistance bands. And im'ma try the p90x.

    Don't wanna get too much muscle though, doesn't suit a nerdy guy like me =)

    It's been a week, and I've lost about 1 pound. Not as much as I'd like, but progress is progress. Like it says, I'm not following any diet or fitness program, so this is about what I'd expect.

    Sorry Oozyrat, I am going to break your format rules a little bit to keep my progress easier to view. I'll just keep adding to my tracking

    05/06 - Started 205
    05/16 - Down to 203
    05/21 - Down to 200

    Exercise - Worked with my trainer twice this week. Also did Bikram Yoga 4 times this week with my boyfriend who is visiting. I'm thinking of taking that up on a couple days a week.

    Food - It was a balance with good and bad. Went out to eat a few times, tried to stay somewhat healthy. He cooked dinners that where very good and healthy this week too.

    This week, I'm down another pound (at 250lbs). I sort of messed up last week, trying too hard, and making myself too sore.
    So this week (and hereafter), I'm just going to stick with P90X (day 3 so far).

    Elliot
    Current Weight: 218.0
    Goal Weight: 200.00

    1) Diet: Overall cutting back on the carb consumption and watching calories. I did keto a few months ago and ended up losing about 15 pounds. One of the problems though was feeling lightheaded throughout the day. Not being able to eat what my bf was eating or made for dinner really ruffled some feathers. Think doing it again with more balance and less sugar will allow me to achieve my goal.

    2) Exercise: Gym 3 times a week and biking twice a week. I can very easily bike for 5-10 miles assuming I have ample daylight / time. My body shows results pretty quickly when I work out. Getting there is half the battle with working late hours and having other demands. I could in theory workout before work too, but I'm not a morning person.

    I get 5-6 hours of sleep a night which isn't enough. My diet the last few months has been a hot mess. Using food to deal with stress. Also not knowing when to stop eating because it tastes good and eating way too much McDonalds breakfasts / fast foods in general.

    So i'm again 167.

    The number haunts me. I skipped last week because it was no change yet again... I feel leaner. Does that count? I'm updating another picture to see if any improvement is notable. I could do more cardio. 5 days a week... i'm hesitant because I just healed from an overuse injury that i attribute to running. Biking instead than.

    I can't eat any less..

    I'm Josh. I'm 30yo and graduate student in stage management and typically work or am in class 14-16 hours a day. I've struggled with my weight as far back as I can remember.

    Current Weight (as of last Monday's weight in): 188.4lbs
    Current Body Fat %: 26.1% (This is according to my scale.. which I don't really know the accuracy of)

    Goal: 165lbs or about 10% less body fat.

    Time Frame: August 12th. (This is the Monday before my fall semester starts. I'm hoping if I can achieve significant changes that it will help motivate me to maintain the progress I've achieved through the regular school year.)

    Diet: Lots of protein. Very little eating out. During the school year I develop horrible eating habits (part out of necessity). Hoping I will teach myself better eating habits that I can then carry on with me into the school year.

    Exercise Goals: Heavy lifting for all major muscle groups at least once per week (preferably twice a week). Cardio on non lifting days. Trying to work up to HIIT but I have an old foot injury that gets pretty easily aggravated from high impact cardio. Yoga or serious stretching at least once a week to try to regain some of the flexibility I once had.
