  1. Wow again! How much is that over how long of a time? You've got alot of fans cheering you on! Gentlemen - start your engines!

  2. You're gonna get there and feel absolutely fantastic!

    Rooting for you all the way!

  3. Really? Trent McCool? That is too funny. He is obviously a COOL dude for offering that deal though! Is the stretch your ride to the races? let's do the math... it's June, so April is like 36 weeks away and he wants you to lose 300?... does this mean you are going to lose 8.33 pounds per week?

    OK, just checkin!? How did grocery shopping go? I really hope you will be not buying waffles this week...PROOO-TEEEN!!

  4. Hey Robin,

    It's 300 pounds since the beginning of this blog. So far I've lost 72 pounds, this means 228 pounds to go. Which makes it 5.18 pounds per week.

    Honestly, I don't know about hitting the 300 pound mark, I would be happy with 200, but it wouldn't hurt to try.

    You are not a "pain in the ass". We did buy some waffles but we also bought almonds, and I've got plenty of oatmeal and protein powder.

    Have a great week.

  5. Oh yea, the stretch limo is our ride to the races!!!

  6. Keep it going!! I'm here cheering for you!!

  8. Dude! You can do this!! Don't settle for 200!!

    BTW: I totally agree about losing the waffles. You've done your research and know that weight loss is a simple relationship of how many calories you take in vs. how many you burn. Waffles and honey are PACKED with unnecessary calories. Try this instead:

    4 - egg whites
    1 - full egg (with yolk)
    1/4 cup - hot salsa (optional)
    1/2 cup - oatmeal (plain) w/ Splenda

    To keep the eggs from being too dry, you can add the full egg later in the cooking process so that the yolk stays a bit runny. The salsa also helps with the "bland" taste of eggs and the "heat" will speed up your metabolism. You'll get your good carbs from the oatmeal rather than those janky ones from the waffles and oatmeal that only add inches and pounds. Eggs take almost no time to cook. In fact, they'll be cooked before the water for your oatmeal is done heating up in your microwave.

    Seriously, COMMIT to trying this breakfast out for 3 weeks and see what happens. I think you'll like the results.

    300 lbs is no slouch goal!!! You're going to have to work EXTREMELY hard to get there! As Maximus said in the movie Gladiator, "The time for half-measures and talk is over!" AND, as Trent said in the movie Swingers, "You're money baby! You're so money!"

    NO REGRETS! You can do this!!

  9. I'll try your breakfast T-Money - I have already walked this morning and will swim this afternoon. BTW everybody, I ate oatmeal this morning.

    Also, I won't settle for anything. I am going to push my body to the limits to see what it'll do.

    In a few months, I am considering some serious weight lifting. Right now I am focusing on getting in better shape and getting used to an exercise routine.

    Thank you T-MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. That's an incredible goal and wonderful motivation. Hope to see you at the race in the Spring, Stephen. I go to both races each year. I will be pulling for you!

  11. FYI: Watch how full you feel after eating the breakfast. If you have that "stuffed" feeling, try cutting the oatmeal down to 1/4 cup instead. You never want to have that "full" feeling. You want to eat just enough so that your stomach isn't grumbling.

    I have a diet plan that a friend gave to me that was developed by a professional body-builder. This friend ran into him at a show and he jotted the diet down for my friend on a piece of paper for a measley $400... talk about an expensive diet! Regardless, you may be able to take it and modify it to fit your needs. Hold me accountable to get that to you.

  12. Go Stephen, and GO TONY STEWART!!!!!! Whoo-hoo!

  13. I'll be rooting for ya! Car Races aren't my thing but one day maybe someone will explain the allure to me! right now i have to go play mediator between my 66 year old mom and 3 year old son!!! fun times.
