OK, it looks like ETS stands to make a few hundred bucks if I get my weight down to 165, and a few others are going to join in.

To make it easier for you to keep me and the others on track, here's a spreadsheet where you can monitor my progress.

I'll be posting pix of my progress, and anyone else who's joining in can keep this thread bumped for the year.

Keep it going. I cannot wait to give money to ETS at the end. Aw, shucks!! I'll just give the forty now and make up the difference when you finish. That way you are on the hook. Anyone else want to join the "so far it's MoBOB's one-man dogpile" to add some pressure?

29 March 2010 - 195 Lbs. As expected, a slower drop. Slowly ramping up exercise routine. Got the bicycle ready to roll for the season.

Keep pluggin' along Marty.

I had to stop running until I can see what happened to my knee. I am using my Arc Trainer as a substitute. It not the same as pounding the pavement, but it is good for the heart. Hopefully I will be able to do the marathon this year.

Actually at 192 mid-week, on target for 194-193 range by next check-in. Will experience the muscle-mass "weight gain" for a little while, expect to hold in the 190-195 range until at least mid-may. Sugar cravings are passing. Really liking my new breakfast routines (Yogurt with Meusli, which is, to me at least, a real treat). Saturdays are "free" in that I can - and do - enjoy a sweet treat or two. Whole family has joined my "no refined sugar" shift. It's harder on them than me. Saving a LOT of spending cash by noy picking up a bagel, a candy bar, an iced tea. In NYC, a Snapple Iced tea is $1.85 to $2.25, and a bagel with cream cheese is about the same. A candy bar is $1.30 at the bus terminal. Cut all that out and I'm finding an extra $20+ a week in my pocket.
