Re: Fitness Checkin

Well, after seeing the incredible weight loss that a friend from high school pulled off, I've realized I need to get up off my ass and get in shape. I've always been a big guy. I'm at 290 lbs right now. I've started the first leg of couch to 5K. I'm tired, and kinda sore, but not as much as I expected. This seems doable to me. Encouragement is appreciated so that I don't slack off. I want to be better than I am.

Okay, after a valiant effort in the fall, I more or less fell off the bandwagon. And then... I started easing up on the treats. And then... epiploic appendagitis hit two weeks ago, destroying my appetite. I am therefore down 11 pounds and a full BMI percentage point!

Unless you're morbidly obese, your "weight" really isn't that important. What's more important is how you look in the mirror.
I don't know about all that. It's been reported that even having a "pouch" is enough to cause problems.

...which would be how you look in the mirror.

Weight by itself is too vague a number to be truly meaningful. Saying "I lost 5 pounds!" could mean so many things. Was it 5 bs of fat? Was it 5 lbs of muscle? Was it water? Did you just take a big shit?

Fat percentage is one thing, but weight in and of itself just doesn't give you enough information, especially since muscle is heavier than fat.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Although when you're athletic weight becomes more important. I've heard as a rule of thumb: For every ten pounds you are overweight, you lose 20 seconds per mile. And for stuff like rock climbing and obstacle course races, if you're not trim it's much harder to do obstacles like rope climbs and monkey bars.

Yesterday I weighed in at 182.6 pounds, which is the lightest I've been since I was 13. But I'm trying to get down to 160.

Hopefully sooner rather than later because in August and September I'm doing a full Spartan Trifecta.

Takin' selfies in the weird jungle bathroom in my gym.
