IronDad50 Posted October 31, 2015 Report Share Posted October 31, 2015 An introduction is in order. Contrary to my name - I am not quite 50 yet! But I am closing in on that number. Over the last few years, the weight has added up (409 lbs) and I am looking at shedding 150+ pounds from my frame. I heard about this web site and it made sense to me as I work in I.T. and have been gaming since starting to play D&D back in the late '70's. I am starting to see the physical effects of carrying around this extra baggage and want to slow that process. MAIN QUEST: To get my weight down to 320 Quest 1 - Bring my lunch from home rather than eating out at least 3x per week A- 20 lunches B- 18 lunches C- 14 lunches D- 10 lunches F- 6 or fewer lunches Quest 2 - Do Bodyweight workout 3x per week A- 18 workouts B- 15 workouts C- 12 workouts D- 9 workouts F- 6 or fewer workouts Quest 3 - Walk at lunch for 30 minutes 2 x per week A- 12 days B- 10 days C- 8 days D- 6 days F- 5 or fewer days Life Quest - Read a book 15 minutes a day A- 40 days B- 35 days C- 30 days D- 25 days F- 20 or fewer days Motivation - I want to begin to get back in shape to walk either the Columbus half or full Marathon when I am 50 years old (completed the half marathon twice). I also want to be able to buy clothes in regular stores and not from the Big & Tall sections. 3 Quote Link to comment
