Dave's Not Here

It is done. Kind of.

by on Apr.29, 2010, under Dave's Rants, Workout Logs

I have been saying, for quite a while, that I’d know what my goal was with my diet when I got there.  Today I ran five miles.  Without stopping.  For the first time in my life.  And, I suddenly realized that I was done.

In high school, I ran 3 miles a day after football practice.  I got my bench press up to 225-235 or so.  And, I wore 32″ pants.  Today, I’m wearing 32″ pants, medium shirts, and I can bench 225 lbs.  While I have been stronger (I’ve pressed 250 before), I don’t think I’ve been in better shape.  I still have a gut . . . and some back fat . . . but I can live with that.  (Or, it may go away in the next couple of weeks . . . )

I am in the final weeks of a “Biggest Loser” challenge at the gym.  I could win . . not sure, I’m afraid to do the math, because it could be impossible at this point.  That challenge ends Monday, May 17th, 2010, so, that will be the official end of my diet.  I will continue to train for the Warrior Dash.  And, I’ll continue to hit the gym.  But, I’ll move on to maintaining my weight, and, hopefully, not obsessing about it as much 🙂  While I’d like to lose another 10 or so, I won’t be bothered if I don’t.  Especially if I continue to stay fit.

So, just to recap:

Starting Stats, May 2009

  • Weight: 257
  • Pants: 42″
  • Shirts: XL / XXL

Ending Stats, May 2010

  • Weight: 182
  • Pants: 32″
  • Shirts: M/L

I’ll get out the tape measure this Monday, and on my official end date, Monday, May 17th, and probably post some final stats (I got plenty!)
