283 and holding

The diet starts in earnest tomorrow. The first three days are a gorge. Eat everything you want. Tonight I am going to hit Crown Burger. It will be the last decent meal I will eat for 40 days. I am not sure why they want me to pig out for 3 days but it worked last time. Tomorrow's diet. Four ounces of chicken an apple and some green beans for lunch. Dinner will be similar. Four ounces of fish, broccoli and an Orange. The first two days were really tough last time. I know what to expect so toughing it out should not be too bad.

The dietitian tells me to be very careful with riding. I fear that bonking will be all too easy if I ride more than an hour so the rides will be short. I will post some photos of the basement after this weekend. The tile is getting much closer. Only about 200 sq feet left. 200 of 900 is not too bad when I put it in context.

283 Started the Diet again today.

I dread the diet. 500 calories per day is just not enough. Then again I need to get down to 240. I will keep you posted.

I am trying to decide if I am going to do the pre ride for the race on Friday. Ty from Revoluion is leading the pre ride. Erich has a Lacrosse tournament so maybe I will do the ride on the way to the tournament.

Good Luck to the team and break a leg Boo.

I went for a ride today. Took out the single speed. I am not sure if a 40 something fat guy should be riding a SS but hey it is simple. I think I am faster going up hill on the SS. It makes you stand up and grind it out rather than noodling up the hill in your granny gear. I will have to test this somewhere or post a comparison from Motion Based. As you can see my heart rate hit the 160's a couple of times. I figure my max heart rate is around 178. I could have gone harder but the hills were short. Thank God.

I have decided to list my weight on the blog. Little shaming is good for you? I got the idea from . I guess he lives somewhere near me. Fatty is not really much of a fatty any more. The guy is probably more than 100 lbs lighter than me. Right now I want to give the excuse that I am taller but lets be real. 6 feet 3 inches is not all that tall and realistically I will still be fat after losing 40 more lbs. I need to get down to around 210. This seems to be a moving target. I had thought 220 would be good but the more I think about it even 220 is too heavy.

I am starting my diet again on Tuesday. I hope to drop 40 lbs in the next two months. I started at 310 back on Dec 5th. So I am down 24 since I started. Too bad I pigged out and gained back 13 lbs in the last 40 days. I have to stop the yo yo. I only wish I still weighed 273. I will be there again soon.
