I'm starting a journal here to help me track my weight loss and diet over the next three months. My company is having its own "Biggest Loser" contest. There will be several prizes. At the end of each month, the male and female with the most weight lost, will receive a gift card of $5 for each pound that is lost. Also the winner of the whole contest (3 months) will win a pick from several prices (ipods, free gym memberships, and so on). The contest started last Monday and I weighed in at a whomping 267 pounds. My goal is to weigh in at 210 pounds by the end of the competition.

I know that much weight loss seems a little far fetched, but I have done it before. It was along time ago, so my age may be catching up to me, but damn it, I'm going to at least work my ass off to reach my goal.

I'm not going on any special kind of diet or workout routine. I'm going to be eating clean fats, carbs, and proteins for my diet. I will be hitting the weights 3 times a week and doing cardio twice daily, every day during the week. Right now my main concern is fat loss. I will worry about gaining muscle win I get to around 200. My first journal post with my diet and routine will start tomorrow.

Good luck, some tips: use a sauna (if possible) and dress like your gonna going outside for winter (more sweat), and also, Thermocin.

What % is your bodyfat at?

Good luck

Good luck

Thanks for the tips. I'm not sure what % my body fat is. I'm sure very high. I'm too embarrassed and just don't really want to know right now. I've really let myself go over the last 2 years (mainly b/c of my wife, she always wants to eat out and get fast food). I've gone from 180 @ 8% body fat (5'9), to 267 over the last few years. Also, a few joint injuries played a part in all of this as well.

That's ridiculous!!
Water weight loss is NOT going to help right now, 3 months from final weigh-in. You might burn a few extra calories.. cooling your body down. You should be drinking as much water as possible... until the last minute. Then read Built's article on WBB about loosing Water wieght the last 3-4 days before the final weigh-in. More then that and you are damaging your chances to win.. and damaging your body!!

CBates... you are crazy if you think the amount of cardio you want to do is going to get you there as fast as you want.. especially without a great diet change.

Adding a little muscle will help you burn more calories throughout the day and also help you be stronger and able to put more effort into your workout. So you will lose more fat and weight in the long run by adding a little muscle. Lift heavy!!! Not BB'ing routines, but a 5x5 or BGB with heavy weights...

As for cardio - HIIT style will get you there must faster. Programs like Tabata.. and/or Crossfit combos will do amazing changes. If you are dedicated and really want to win!

GL... have fun... and share your prizes... haha

As stated in my original post, I am cleaning up my diet. It will pretty much include oats, chicken, fish, fruits/veggies, protein shakes, olive oi, fish oil, and so on. Also, as stated in my original post, I will be lifting weights 3 days a week. Monday: Back/Biceps. Wed: Chest/Shoulders. Fri: Legs. I'm just going to have a lot more emphasis on cardio over the next 3 months, than I normally would have in my routine.

I'm not a newbie when it comes to lifting weights, dieting, and cardio. I have dieted down to 8-9% body fat before, several times actually. I have tons of pics to prove it, if you'd like me to post them. Thanks for the input though.

Thank God for server rooms up at work, it's so nice to be able to go sit in the 60 degree server room for 30 minutes after doing my cardio. I do my cardio at work in the stair ways that is used when the elevators go down (nobody can see me while I do my cardio, they are closed off by doors)

Thanks for the comments, I've been busting my ass off with working out and dieting. If I keep this up for another 2 1/2 months, I know there will be nobody that will beat me (everybody that claims they're going to win, I see eating Taco Bell or McDonalds every day for lunch)

Thanks for the comment. I'm going to need some luck to come my way, out first weigh in next Tuesday, so if I win for this month, I'll get a gift card with $5 added on to it for each pound I lose.

Gained a pound since I last weighed, but I figured that is due to my carb up meal I had 2 days ago, and b/c I have not gone #2 in about 10 days (hence the fiber supplement I added to my diet)

Weight loss has slowed down. I think this is due to cutting out the cardio, but hopefully it's due to muscle gain since I've been back in the gym hitting the weights for only a month now. I will probably add the cardio back into the routine though.

Thanks, I'm glad to be back. I've put off the gym and my health for a few years now (mostly due to having another kid and school). Time for me to get back into shape like before.

****UPDATE****

So today was the offical weigh in for the month of May. I weighed in at 247, so I lost 20 pounds for the month of May. Assuming I win, I'll get a gift card for this month for $100. I'm hoping by adding the cardio back into my routine I can drop another 12-20 pounds for the month of June.

I think I'm gonig to keep doing what I'm doing until it stops working or I hit my goal. I mean, I Know my calories are a little low, but it's working. Once I get my body weight to around 190-200, then I'm going to concentrate more on building mass, but until then my main concern is just fat loss.

This workout was from Saturday. I had to work some over time on Sunday and my daughter had a dance recital on Saturday night, so I've been too busy to post this. Also, my diet kind of went to hell this weekend. I didn't really cheat, but just ate a lot more than I should had with a lot more carbs. I'm gonig to skip my mid week carb up meal.

I may have to take a week or 2 off from deadlifting. I'm not sure if I have a bruise or blood under my one of my callus, but it's black and it hurt like hell yesterday when gripping the bar to do deadlifts.

So here is an update..the contest is coming to an end next Tuesday. I've still been working out and dieting, just been too busy to continue to post everything in here. Between family, work, school, and gym, I don't even have enough time to watch TV, much less post my routine on here.

I've lost 32 pounds. It's not 57 pounds, but I need to replace some clothes and I've been getting compliments, so I'm happy. But I do need some help now, my final weigh in is next Tuesday, there is only one other person that is going to be some competition since we're going by percentage instead of pounds lost. To win this contest I need to lose 5-7 pounds by Tuesday at 10am. Since I'm doing the NHE diet, a lot of my water weight is gone (I'm skipping my carb meals until after the weigh in, so I don't add any water weight). There is an article on this web site that I plan on following: http://www.wannabebig.com/article.php?articleid=288

I also plan on taking a crap load of fiber over the next few days too. I just want some tips to temporarily lose a few pounds just for the weigh in within a very short period of time. Any advice will be very much appreciated.

First, I just want to say congratulations on the weight loss. I don't if I could've managed your diet, it seemed kind of skimpy and I can get kind of hungry. How much money have you won so far?

As for an idea...Harvey on Celebrity Fit Club always claims that you can poop out at least two pounds, so maybe a colonic or a colon cleanser? :eek:

I'm sure someone else will come along with something healthier. But, until then...

So far I've won $100. The month of June I didn't do so well, so I didn't win any money for that month. July I'm hoping to win about $150-170 (pending I win this whole thing).

I do have some colon cleaner that I purchased at GNC. I plan on taking double the recommended dosage amount over the weekend to make sure my system is completely cleaned out.

Thanks for the input

Well, they have pushed the weigh in back another week. So I have until July 31st. So that gives me more time to do a lot more cardio and stay on a strict diet to lose some more weight. Although I just want this to end, so I can have a carb meal, eating steak, beef, chicken, fish, and eggs is getting very bland.

Did you win?

Well, I won. I lost a total of 35 pounds (came to like 13.something%). If it matters, I didn't cheat by trying to reduce my water by sitting in a sauna or anything.

So I won $100 the first month, and I will win $185 for the last month/whole contest combined. I'm going to ask the program manager at work if it's possible for them to hook me up with 4 Cowboy/Patriots tickets (company has great season tickets) instead of the $185 gift card. Maybe she'll be cool and give me both, tickets and the gift card??

Congratulations. I'm sure it will be nice to not have as restrictive of a diet anymore.
