Is it possible?

Don't know, but I'm about to find out.


I've been kind of half assing my exercise and dieting. I've been mainting my weight but not taking any off.

Time to get serious before I end up looking like the star wars kid ;)

I lost 30 in 14 weeks, but that was basic training.

Once those super-third-trimester hormones kick in, I bet Kari would make a great drill instructor.

I once lost 10 pounds in a month and my doctor got really concerned.

In short, it's not healthy to drop that much weight that quickly.

I dropped almost 50 in 3 months. Wasn't too hard.

Yeah when I went on my diet back in...'99 (Shock...has it been that long ago), I dropped 80lbs in five months.

But of course that was almost ten years ago, and I'm old and broken now :D

Well it depends on your starting weight, I'd imagine. 10 pounds in a month really isn't that much. 2-3 pounds a week is about normal for a diet.

noble

I guess it helps if I say my starting weight is 198. So there you go :)

Most guys I know seem to gain sympathy weight when they're wives are pregnant. And don't forget, you're drinking for two now.

Damn. It took me a year to lose 30lbs . . . of course I wasn't TRYING to lose any weight I just did.

And you want to get down to 168? That's gonna be tough. Those last 10 pounds will be really difficult. Any immediate and drastic change in diet will likely result in about a 7- to 10-lb weightloss the first week with a dropoff each week that follows. 30 lbs in 30 days is very possible but will be difficult. It would have been easier if you were 250 lbs and wanted to get down to 220 (which would, in theory, still be overweight)

Yeah that hasn't been helping.

I've been trying to watch what I eat, but when the wife is constantly snarfing down Ice cream, chocolate, and everything that doesn't move, it's kind of hard not to want some.


Damn you will power!

Yeah when I lost the weight before I got down to 155. Which was a bit too skinny IMO.

Over the last eight years I've slowly gained some of it back, and I want to knock it off for bikini season :p

A hair under six foot. Like 5'11'' and some change.

2-3 pounds a week is a healthy weight loss. Anything more than that is probably pushing it.

I don't know. 168? and you're 5' 11" isn't that kinda pushing it?


EDIT: of course it does depend on your body type. Because I'm not chubby whatsoever anymore and I still weigh 203.

I've got a barrel chest and broad shoulders.

Here's a pic before I lost the weight(feel free to make fun of the horrible hair)

I was at 228 here.

Which was too skinny if you ask me.

Possible? Maybe. A good idea? No.

2-3 pounds a week is the safe amount to aim for.

I started excercising regularly as my New Year's resolution, and I've only dropped about 10 pounds, but I've gained a ton of muscle and dropped a lot as far as percentage body fat.

Roman Noodles
07-05-2007, 09:06 AM
Wow. Two extremes. So 168 is about right.

Just think of losing weight as adding more achievement points in Xbox Live and you'll lose it all in a matter of days.

In all seriousness though, I would say cut out sugar completely (especially soda if you drink it) and run a mile or two everyday with some weight training if you want to tone up.

Dont jump into a exercise program without taking it slow. I did two days ago and my entire chest and arms are sore as hell. Damn bench press, I wasnt even going all out but it was the months of inactivity that got me.

And I agree with that one dude, if you have to drink soda, get the kind without sugar. Theres some good stuff out there.

Well at my age(and the abuse I put myself through as a teenager(wrestling and the like), I'm gonna be stiff no matter what I do ;)

But I agree it's always best to start out slow on anything :)

i think the most you should shoot for is 20, then give yourself a little longer to drop that last 10 pounds. as someone said, it will be more difficult.

I just lost about 20 pounds in about 3 weeks. I ate mostly fresh fruits and vegetables and no fried food or that kind of stuff. Plus regular exercise. It actually wasn't too hard.

A pound is about 3500 calories. The average male burns 2000 to 2500 calories a day. If you're on the high side and eat nothing all day, you're still 1000 calories short of losing a pound. Running a mile burns between 100 and 150 calories for the average person at an average pace. So to burn those extra 1000 calories you'd have to run about ten miles.

So if you don't eat anything for 30 days and run 300 miles over that time, you'll lose your 30 pounds. Of course you could run more and eat more, but the difficulty will still be the same.

A pound or so a week through diet and exercise is probably a realistic, yet still ambitous, goal. That means 30 pounds in 30 weeks.

It's true :twisted:

on the other side for every 30lbs overweight a man is he 'loses' an inch.

(you actually aren't gaining or losing, it's just that guys get most of their weight around their mid section, groin area, and the flop rolls are just hiding your dinkie.)
