I will definitely be continuing with the weight-loss and www.nu4you.net after the challenge! This has completely opened my eyes and made me extremely conscious of food choices/activity levels.
So far, I have lost almost 27 pounds and 6" of mid-section fat. I am very excited about the opportunities for my future. I plan to continue with www.nu4you.net after the next 90 days as well.
I took my after pic and sent it in. I was a little discouraged when I saw it, until I compared it to my before pic. I didn't even have a NECK in my before picture! Now I can see my original chin and neck...woohoo...and there seems to be more of me now in the **good** places!
Journaling my food intake and activity level has been really important to me and pushes me to do the right things. I have always been 100% honest about everything I have consumed and about my lack of activity - even when I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY didn't want to! If I can't even be honest with myself...
I know that Ken and Chris are very motivated to contiue - even though they don't have near as much to lose as I do - so I plan on sticking with them along the way...I know they are here for me to!! Thanks guys!!
As most of you already know, I will be turning 40 in January. January 8th actually. I would VERY MUCH like to be down to 200 pounds by my birthday. That will be a HUGE milestone for me.
That will give me 5 months to drop the remaining 30-35 pounds I want to lose to get back to my pre-relationship weight & goal of 160-165 pounds. Then I'll be able to show it off during the Summer months.
My plan is to start working on adding lean muscle after losing the bulk of the fat I'm carrying around. I know that I need to increase calories in order to grow muscle...so that will have to wait until after I'm close to my goal.
Thanks so much RJ and Nu4You for giving me the hope that I can once again be the man I used to be!
