How about that? I lose more on vacation with buffets galore than I do back at home. Actually, I am not disappointed. I took the week of vacation off from lifting weights and now I am back at it. Also, My cardio was way down last week. It was a combination of weather and trying to get over some aches and pains in my feet. So I am pretty happy...except I really wanted to break the 260 mark today. I am sure I will next week. It's all good.

I am a members of Kiwanis. It's a community service group. We meet for lunch once a week. Each member is responsible for finding a speaker for those lunches once a year. Next Tuesday is my turn. I plan to be the speaker. I am going to speak on my journey of fitness. They all know that I have lost weight and that I have been running, but they don't know any of the specifics including how much I lost. I plan to purposely not tell them how much I have lost in order to emphasize the importance of overall fitness rather than just scale numbers. My goal is to encourage the members to improve their own fitness.

I wish someone would tape that so you could post it here... It should be quite a speech. Now, you can inspire other people besides us! Go, Half-Man!!!!

Make it into a quiz - the closest guess gets to buy you a donut...

I'd just like to agree with Sayre and say that a recording of the speech would be awesome.

And Kiwanis! I knew a couple people who were Kiwanis, I think. They even went to the States for something to do with the Kiwanis. Must have been a conference.

Congrats on the continued loss :)

That should be a great, very inspirational speech.

Now when you get to your goal weight don't gain 16 pounds back like the Captain did. Great job. I am very proud of you. I hit 16 reps on the 135 today. I was pretty happy with that.

Congrats on your continued success.

What method do you use to calculate your BF%?

Half Man said...

Sayre - Thanks for your confidence.

Kim - What a fantastic idea, but I was thinking more like Fettucine Alfredo.

FTL - That reminds me. One of our fundraisers is selling nuts and kiwis (basically turtles).

Sally - I hope that I will encourage some to improve their fitness.

Captain - I am sure you will lose it again. What did you do 16 reps at 135?

bryguy - Plug your measurements in inches into the following formula [Waist+(1/2Hips)-(2.7*Forearm)-Wrist=%Body Fat] or you can do it online at
