100 lb. Club - Been Delinquent
05-31-2005, 08:47 AM
Whell, i don't know if this is due to new job, but i've been delinquent in the past few weeks. i've had these little late night snacks that can really do harm as you do not burn that many calories when you go to bed. Furthermore, since we have real crappy weather in Montreal, i cannot go to work on my bike as often as i would like.:mad: I still do my laps at the pool 3 times a week however.:)
The good thing in this is that i haven't gained neither lost any weight. Since i'm 45 pounds away from my goal (210), i'll try to shake things up with meal replacement drinks. I know it is not the best way to do it, but if i can loose, let's say 20 pounds over a short period of time, this will take me closer to my goal and will give me the motivation to reach my objectives.

my goal is about 210 aswell how tall are you? i'm 6' on the nose. but at the moment crept upto 266 from 226 14 months back joy of being injury prone. started my running yesterday for next years marathon and new weight regieme and i'm swimming 1km a day should get me up and running (pun intended) for next year along with my supplement shedual (CLA, glucosamine sulphate and multivitamins)

A big change can so easily mess us up, Frenchie (I guess its because we have our minds wrapped around the change so much we don't have the energy to concentrate on other important things in our lives.) I'm sure once you settle down into a comfort zone at work you'll get back into your weight-loss comfort zone as well.
The weather can only get better, so I'm sure you'll be able to get on that bike far more often soon! As for the meal replacements...I don't really understand the attraction, unless its a matter of the forced discipline. I'd rather fill up on a huge salad tossed with some lean protein and fat free dressing than a small drink (especially when the protein drink is only a short term measure and you have to go back to "real" eating soon). BUT whatever works for you and provides motivation is the route to go (so long as its safe)! Bonne chance! :)
Good luck to you also, Si, on the marathon training and staying injury free!

My goal will probably be around 220 to 210. I'm 6'2. Just keep with it frenchie you can do it.

mmmm i sense this getting very competitive frenchie in the lead at 255 me lagging at 266 and the H man fastly closing in on both of us at 288 and we are all chasing the same target i'll do you guys a deal when we all hit 210-220 we should have a celebratory dinner together

Ooh, I like it -- a hot 3fc male thread.
Girls, what do you think? Should we keep 'em? ;)
Of course, our lovely Kim has dibs on the H-man, but maybe we can auction off the other two to the highest bidder!
:lol: :lol: :lol:

To answer Sy's Question, i'm 6'0 tall.....As you mentionned, it is very hard at the moment to determine who will win the race as Howie's dropping weight like crazy...
Anyways, ladies, once i reached my objectives, which is among other things, look handsome while naked, i'll be up for rent;)
06-01-2005, 09:48 AM
Dangit wouldn't you know you'd charge rent when I'm gonna be a poor single mother :lol: Guess I'll have to wait for my prince charming to arrive here one day.

Now that sounds like a blast Si. We will have to think of a place to meet. Boy almost makes me wish I was single so I could get auctioned off. (I said Almost Kimberley)
06-01-2005, 12:05 PM
great idea by jennifer but where would the money go
06-01-2005, 12:12 PM
I could use some money LOL. Heck I might bid on you two myself if you do yard work.
That would be fun though we could donate the money to some weight loss center.
06-01-2005, 12:16 PM
or really be ironic and give it to sir bob geldof to end world famine PMSL!
06-01-2005, 12:21 PM
Now that would be good. I've probably saved enough food to save a small village from hunger. LOL
06-01-2005, 02:32 PM
and me over the last 3 years lol
06-01-2005, 02:47 PM
You will have to fend for yourself Si. I'm all about feeding my village. LOL
06-01-2005, 02:52 PM
LOL you guys really make me laugh.
06-01-2005, 03:50 PM
Who'll give me $500 for the H-Man? Do I hear $500? Uh.... :shakes head: I feel confused...where am I?
06-01-2005, 04:36 PM
There are some days I wish I could sell mine too Kim! lol
On the days that I come home from working out and he is eating ice cream sandwiches on the couch....
06-01-2005, 05:45 PM
Sure, I'll give you $500 for the H-man, Gardenwife (of course I'll be paying in Canadian dollars so that'll equal about $5.12US). Hmmm....what plans do I have for Howie? I know, I'll have him do all the household chores so I can go on a romantic weekend away with the G-Man! :D
06-01-2005, 07:26 PM
Oh, come now, the exchange rate can't be that bad! LOL
06-01-2005, 08:19 PM
Hey I'm not out for hire to do chores.
06-02-2005, 06:42 PM
Farm boy, fetch me that pail of water...
06-02-2005, 06:43 PM
LOL...."As You Wish"...;)
