I intend to lose 10% or more of my body weight in 2017.

Currently I am 191 pounds. My goal is to reach 170 pounds. I will be FIRE'd as of January 4, 2017 so I am hopeful that this will be a good time to make a genuine lifestyle change as opposed to the usual cycle of gain and then lose, gain, lose, lather, rinse and repeat.

My motivation is to better my odds of staying healthy by reducing my blood pressure, the risk of stroke, heart attack, and Diabetes, all of which unfortunately run in my extended family.

I will post updated stats weekly, or at least every two weeks. But may post more frequently to discuss diet and general strategy if anyone else is interested.

Anyone else in?


Simple step is diet and burning more calories. This simple step helps you to lose weight.

I'm in, pretty much have to.

Current weight 230lbs

Want to do a USAPL powerlifting meet @ 205lb weight class in April
Doing Ironman Lake Placid 70.3 in September for which I need to be even lighter so my joints don't fall apart.

I actually got up to 235 after returning from vacation ~January 5th.

Weight today is 210.2, so I am officially down 10% of my bodyweight with another week to go (and I do plan on dropping another 1-2 lbs)

I'm in.  Weighted myself 2 days ago, I was 228 (I've been fluctuating around 230).  I'm 6'4, so while I'm overweight, it's not super obvious.  I was 180 almost 2 years ago, and had a lot of health issues since.  If I was at 100% that would be my goal, but 200 with some of my muscle back would be fantastic.  My biggest hurdle will be saying no to the snacks at the office.
Weight went up.  More health issues, less energy.  Hopefully I'll figure out what's going on soon.  As soon as I do, the weight is coming off.  The scale said 240 over the weekend.  At least I saved a ton of money this year.

I had to google it.  A ton of quarters is worth $40k.

So, a December of booze and Christmas cookies erased a lot of the progress I'd made. Back on the wagon, and shooting for a 15% loss in 2018.

I'm in on this one.

Current weight 285. 

I have spent the last few years focusing on making sure our financial future was taken care of, now I need to focus on my getting more healthy so I can enjoy all of our hard work in the future. 

2017 goal:  Lose weight, not worry about money (we have plenty) and learn to live in the moment.

Failed.  Miserably.   I stopped worrying about money as much, tried to live in the moment more, but actually gained weight.  Extremely busy and stressful work year for me.  It was fun and challenging, but the long hours, travel and high stakes took their toll.

Need to do better in 2018.

Need to take my own advice from 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014...sigh.

Actually I am pretty excited to turn the next chapter here.  Everything else is in place.  Just need to tackle the fitness side of life and feel like I have sufficient motivation.  We'll see.
