Fat Assed Old Man

I came to a realization this weekend. I'm a fat assed old man. When I left the Navy in October 1991, I weighed 190 pounds. I had a 34 inch waist.

I now weigh 281.6 pounds and I have a 44 inch waist. I am having acid reflux. My knees ache. I'm sick of this shit. I intend to lose 90 pounds. I'm going to do it the old fashioned way. I'm going to exercise and eat less. I'll post my progress here every Sunday evening, good or bad. I'm counting on you folks, especially you good looking women folk to give me the motivation to make this happen. By the holidays in 2006, I expect to be 190 pounds again.

I'm old fashioned myself, but cutting way back on carbs will end that acid reflux almost overnight.

You've got about 20 lbs. on me. I'm doing the very same thing - New Year's Resolution and all, a pound a week - so I wish you the best of luck. Hopefully this time next year we'll both be MUCH lesser men... ;)

Good for you!

I am NOT a good looking woman but I might be able to provide a bit of motivation.

February of 2004 I weighed 390+ lbs I now weigh 165 lbs. I can't even begin to tell you what a change it has made in my life. Like you I had acid reflux, snored, slept poorly and everything was far more work than it needed to be. We gain the weight slowly over time and lose our health and abilities bit by bit so our current state "feels normal", you will be shocked to find what normal really feels like.

You have a medical background you know what you need to do. Like working on trigger mechanics it's all just a matter of putting the time in and getting it done.

In case your curious here is a before and after picture. http://www.morrow-online.com:8080/SidebySide1.jpg

Keep the faith, you can do this, it will make such a huge difference in your life you will wonder why you did not do it sooner.

A critical part of any successful exercise/nutrition weight loss program is range time.

Be sure to allow plenty of range time on a regular basis. The best successes seem to involve multiple calibers.

More research is clearly needed on this issue........

The Buy a Gun diet system:

For every 10lbs you lose, buy yourself a gun.

Im right there with you. Aug. 15 of last year I weighed 348, way to heavy for me. Im down to 312 and still dropping. It can be done.

First, Mike, wow! That is awesome! And your little girl (assuming) is cute as a button.

Xav, you're a touch ahead of me (I'm hovering right about 240) but I reckon you're prolly a few inches taller at least. I make my target to be around 160 or so, hopefully with some muscle. I look forward to your progress as I work on mine as well. Good luck.

If you're going to do 90 lbs in 365 days, you need to make about 860 calories per day.

That's tough. Hope you want it that bad.

I'm 6', 220 lbs. I'm wearing 38" pants.. that's with a gun's width, but still. This time last year I got so ticked about it that I went on a 1400 Cal/day diet and lost a pound every two days. It was too fast and I lost 15 pounds in a month, then started getting weak and dizzy all the time, so I stupidly called it off. The boosted energy was great though, between dizzy spells, of course.

Now here I am back where I was. I wanna be 190. I can do it in 6 months if I cut out 500 cal/day... Maybe I should get back on that.

Good luck to you. Maybe all the gunbloggers should form a support group?
