Early March I had booked an appointment with a sp for an hour. The encounter started off great until we got to the straight sex. Started off with cowgirl (my favorite postion, also the lazy mans position). After a while the sp then asked me to go doggie style, her favorite. Even with her on all fours on the side of the bad with face down, ass up and me standing on the floor I had to bend my knees quite a bit to fit in. Then I started to go at it again, grabbing the hips and jackhammering away. After five minutes I was sweating out a storm and sucking wind hard. I could go no longer and stopped. Not only was I embarrassed at my poor performance but I saw the look on the sp's face and could not help to notice a look of disappointment. I lay on the bed took a couple of minutes to catch my breath, then proceeded to rub one out while she caressed my chest. The silence was deafening.
March the 8th, a few days later I went back to my gym. I have a one year membership that is over this May 16th. Until March the 8th I had been to the gym a total of 18 days. The first two weeks of my membership my attendance was good after that it became sporadic to non existent. Well on March the 8th, I stepped on the scale at the gym slid the bottom weight down to 300lb mark and inching the top weight until the balence started to finaly move form the bottom. The end weight...333lbs, afew more pounds and I would be off the register. Now I feel as though I must qualify the weight. I am 6'3 with a large physique, an offensive lineman type of physique (whitch fits considering I still play contact football in the Quebec senior league). So I do have a good amount of muscle underneath the flab with a strong base to start from. Still 330lbs was disgusting, with most of the weight going to my gut whitch had become very large.
So with the previous sp encounter and the verdict from the scale that was enough for me. Started on the treadmill for 60 mins (+5 mins cooldown) at a slow walking pace of 2.5 with no incline. The next day I used some tactics from my old wrestling days when it was a bitch to make weight. I dressed in layers a apair of sweatpants, a t-shirt and a heavy sweatshirt with a hood or wearing a baseball cap. Covering the head is one of the most important things, its a major heat escape source. I will not go to the extreme like I used to in wrestling like skipping rope in a shower room with all the showers turned on hot full blast and wearing garbage bags. Nor to the extent of some of my fellow wrestlers by eating exlax, sticking the finger down the throat or my favorite sleeping on top off all the covers bare naked with the window open in the cold months (actually I did that one a few times).
I have also cut out the 2L of coke (cola) I used to drink a day. Replaced that with one glass of juice in the morning followed by water all day long, alot more then 2L. I have cut out all unnatural sugars ie: no more chocolat, candy, cake and my biggest loss no more pie. The last elimination no more fried foods. Otherwise I eat what I want just smaller preportions. I will not do the atkins diet, it might be a good jump start to weight loss, but long term effects are a possibility. I try to have a large bowl of cerial in the morning (bran related, my choice right now is Raisin brand) instead of always skipping that meal. I also try to have a salad in one of the other meals.
The past thirty-one days I have missed only four days at the gym. I remember watching a show a while back, it was a study by some university in the US, that showed people who have lost weight and have been able to keep it off for periods of 10 to 15 years all had one thing in common. They all had a minumum of 60 min of exercises. I have made my official weigh day every monday, so far it goes as such: March 8th-330lbs, 15th-326lbs, 22nd-319lbs, 29th-312lbs, April 5th-307lbs and Thursday April 8-303lbs just because it had been a full month. The last week my pace of a pound a day fell off whitch was to be expected. Still this week is looking promising and 30lbs in 31 days not too shabby. So far I have only used the treadmill (with CD walkman to put my mind elsewhere while I work out. When I first started the treadmill I was doing a 2.5 speed with no incline (the treadmill showing me I lost 452 cals in that 1 hour and 5 mins.). I have gradually increased that to last nights numbers of starting at a pace of 3.2 throughout the 60 mins.(medium to slow walk, I can not run due to bad football knees). With an incline starting at 6 moving it upward during the 60 mins to an incline of 10 (with less weight entered burned 1038 cals).
I am on a real high now and feel much better about myself. I have small goals that I shoot for ie the 300lbs barrier, but my overall goal will be to reach 220/230 lbs (might have to leave the O-line, but DE might not be a bad idea). I like the treadmill for right now, I will eventually start lifting weights again, this time lower weight more reps. I know my weight loss will eventually level out, so not to loose my enthusiasm I will keep on posting every monday my results as an incentive.
Talking about it is great, so if anyone else wants to share their experiences present or past, please do. All suggestions are welcomed, and if anyone would like to have a HEALTHY, friendly competition to spur me on that would be great.
