    Just sign in below...let's DO THIS!!! Week of 3/31/14 KCRob - 245/232/195 - Have been unable to run for a few years now and that's still pretty sad for me. However, I'm starting Yoga this week and I'm pretty damn excited about it. It's the first exercise/fitness thing I've been able to get pumped up for since I stopped running. nomore4eyes -199/191/183- You're doing great KCRob! and welcome & best of luck BigRed! Gigem21- 216/202/195 - Holding tight around the same weight. I seem to have hit a plateau. Any good ways to break through it? Great job to kcrob and nomore4eyes. Keep it up and welcome to the club bigred! Big Red - SW 273 / LW 273 / CW 267 / GW 230 - Lost 6 lbs my first full week of diet and exercise. Swam for 5 days and rollerbladed for 1 for exercise. I am going to post in on Fridays now. On my first go around I would do less calories to break a plateau and it would almost never work. I found that more water and exercise would help. I think just changing something up for a little bit makes your body react as it was getting comfortable with whatever you were doing. Week of 4/7/14 nomore4eyes -199/193/183- Sorry to slink in here with a 2 lb. gain to post. Parents in town = lots of dining out, but I'm tired of making excuses. Great start Big Red!! maquit -221/218/175- Hovering, still not drinking. Working out, feeling good. need to change my diet now, but just taking baby steps. KCRob - 245/230/195 - No apologies necessary NoMore... use that little setback as a motivator. Says more to me that you still came back after a gain than just giving up! Awesome job BigRed.. To anyone else who's watching with some weight to lose, please post up. Just like your Quit Group we can help each other with this goal too. Gigem21- 216/200/195 - Ran my first 5K this weeked and it felt great. Still on the path, eating pretty good, drinking lots of water and running 3-4 times a week. It is finally starting to feel normal to be working out instead of eating crap food. Keep it up fellas! BigRed - SW 273 / LW 267 / CW 262 / GW 230 - 2 weeks down. I lost 5 lbs this week. I am up to a mile in swimming now. Feeling good about how much energy I have now.

    Just sign in below...let's DO THIS!!! Week of 3/17/14 nomore4eyes - 199/193.5/179 - a week on a mission trip eating poorly but working hard left it a wash...will really try to get to the 180s by next Monday!! maquit - 221/217/175 - starting a 6-week alcohol abstinence program. 6-weeks until my 47th birthday, a pound/week plus one for good luck will get me to 210. KCRob - 245/234/195 - 11 down, 39 to go. That's a lot of extra weight I'll be glad to STOP carrying around with me. Gigem21 - 216/203/195 - No weight loss this week but looking to drop to 200 by April. Here we go! Great job guys! Week of 3/24/14 nomore4eyes - 199/191/179 - Didn't quite make it to 189, but I blame that on the stressful NCAA tournament and lack of warm weather to enable physical yard work... KCRob - 245/233/195 - Apparently this is gonna take a while, but I'm definitely in it for the long haul. Hope you all will still check in on me after you're done. gigem21 - 216/202/195 - 1 pound down. Ran my first race last weekend, which was a lot of fun. Next weekend is a 5k in Austin. Looking forward to it! Great job guys, keep going! BigRed - 273 / 270 / 230 - This is round 2 for me. First round lost me 76 lbs. I have gained back around 40. I am 6' 6". I have been doing swimming this last week for cardio. the pool is longer then I remember. KCRob I will be here for a while too...

  6. Let's see. I lost my job, with no work for 30 days. I spent 30 days in prayer and online looking and applying for everything I could. Very few interviews. Issues with wife and kids. I now have 2 jobs, 1 full and 1 part to make up for lost wages. I work with a dipper that puts a dip in next to me all the time. I am still dip free though.

You have a plethora of experienced quitters in your group. Use them as an asset of what worked and what didn't work on their previous quits. Phil- 72- Caving if for little nancy boys. People who aren't man enough to make a commitment and stick to it. When you are dipping, we all bitch and moan about how badly we want to be free from the can. Now we are free. YOU made the decision to quit. YOU can make the decision to cave. Just remember that there is no excuse. By caving, you are showing that you are not tough enough to face down the Nic Bitch.

    OCTOBER 2012 HOF CLASS The Glue Factory--Sniff All you want, just don't eat it. Wednesday September 5th, 2012 "I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances to turn back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something... There is still some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting for."- Sam, "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" (2002).

    2 Problems I need some help with...

    I work with several guys who dip all day long. It has been a bitch, I will not lie to you. I have told each of them in private that I have quit and not to be offended if I walk away if they are putting in a dip. By doing this most of them don't open their can's around me anymore or they will be a ninja dipper around me to help out. I used to have fake stuff with me at all times. I am now on week 3 without any fake stuff. I now have gum, mints, and seeds in my car and in my office. I have a mini fridge in my office so I have baby carrots and other healthy snacks to help keep the edge off. (I am on a diet to lose weight, hence the veggies instead of candy bars) I have heard of others that keep a medication bottle filled with cotton balls soaked in mouthwash on them, or tooth picks that have been soaked in flavoring such as cinnamon extract. My advice to you, be ready to go for a walk when he lights up. It is not worth a cave just to be sociable. Have crave killers with you at all times. Maybe talk the missus into kissing you every half hour to an hour to help keep you honest.
