Maybe if the 'scouts said "hey would you like to buy our genetically modified wheat, round-up ready sugar beet and high-fructose corn syrup-sweetened death cakes?" you might just balk a tad...

I find it safer to just buy the cookies.

I was doing good, too, until those damn girl scouts talked me into three boxes of Thin Mints.

Ha ha! Oh, no way- they can't get Mike & me with their enticing displays & little puppy dog eyes- we just say "no thank you" & breeze right past them, (and never, EVER look directly into their eyes- they'll have you for sure if you do!)   ;)

I apply my steely stare at the grocery store, and ignore the tables at the entrance.  But when my niece calls, how the hell can I say no?  What kind of shitty uncle would I be?  It's not that I like the cookies, you understand...   ;D

Luckily our girl scouts on this side of the pond are happily entombed in village halls doing crafts and dancing - not learning the evil ways of the free market, emotional bribery and violent retribution.... ;D

(I think the bankers do that here!!) :o

My problems are portion control and lack of exercise.  I'll be posting here periodically -- I'm 6'3" and 255 lbs and would like to drop at least 30 lbs.

I'm still 20 pounds less than my all time high of 275 in 2002.

Actually, I was mistaken.  Right after I posted that I stepped on the scale and realized that I actually weighed 260.0 pounds.  It was the incentive I needed.

Monday is "weigh-in" day, and today I'm 249.0.

Ten down, thirty to go!

Congrats, guys!  :)

I'm down 9lbs since starting P90X almost 2 months ago. I can't credit the program entirely, though, since I hurt my knee not too long into the first month & wasn't able to do the lower bod or cardio DVDs, (only upper bod & abs.) I'm getting back to running and stuff now, but for awhile I could only ride the stationary bike at a very low resistance level for my cardio workouts. Oh, and I also got super-strict with my diet right after I hurt my knee, because I knew that if I couldn't do all my cardio stuff, I'd blow up like a rubber raft if I didn't drastically cut calories!

Anyway, 9lbs down & a few more to go!

Way to go, folks!   ;D

I'm down about 5.  Biking season has begun, so I should increase the pace of loss over the next few months.  I got my first good ride in on Sunday - 50 miles on the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes.  If I can ride 100 miles a week, I should hit my target of 200# by fall easily.  And with riding partners like these four lovely ladies, motivation should be easy to find.   ;)

Wow! 9 pounds! From your pictures it  looks like you were fairly small to begin with, so 9 pounds is a lot.   Harry

Aw, thanks Harry! I gained some weight over the winter, though, when we quit doing our super-long runs and big hikes and stuff. I'm really excited to start getting back outside for some nature adventures, (if it would ever quit raining!)  >:(

Ha! There are soooo many musicians who go by "Lena," it's crazy! I even had a GUY write me once, demanding that I stop going by that name because HE was already using it, (his real name was like Mathias, or something.) I wrote him back and told him, "Sorry, dude- that's my actual name!"  ;D

Try being named "John"...  ;-)

And Lena - she looks just like you!  Just not as cute.

OMG, ha ha- thanks, John!  ;D

(However, I think being a teenager pretty much always trumps the more "mature" girl in cuteness factor.)  ;)

My knee injury is FINALLY, (after two months), getting better now, and I'll soon be able to get back to lifting heavy weights for my lower-bod strength training sessions, hooray!  :)

Another Monday.  Today's weight is 246.5.

My last dream before I woke up this morning was about buying a bag of potato chips.

237.5

According to my BMI, I am officially "overweight."   Of course, I came at it from the other side!  ;)
