Swedish Viking need some weight loss! (around 50lbs..)

Post by Wolfer » Sun Jul 10, 2011 6:55 pm

Hello guys!
A Swedish fellow war-gamer here in need of some weight-loss :D

I actually started 4 weeks ago, and have already lost 4.5kg! (9.9lbs or something)
I started at 296lbs, which would mean I'm at 286lbs now. Also I'm 185 cm tall (6'1").

Methods:
#1. Using my newly invested bicycle to get to and from work. It's around 7,5km(4,66 miles) to my work place so a total of 15km (9,32 miles) 5-6 days a week.
#2. Workout at the gym neighboring my workplace before I go to work, everything before breakfast as well.
#3. I'm on a LCHF diet (Low Carbonhydrate High Fat) which really means I cant eat rice, potatoes, pasta, sugar, bread or anything really that has more than 2% of carbonhydrates. Yes that means I can eat egg&bacon everyday and I lose weight cuz of it. (it works I promise :O )

I'm hoping to lose these 50 something pounds by the end of august, but if I don't I'll just continue with the diet since I'm going to continue my studies this fall(no time to workout or bicycle to work xD).

I'll post weekly updates, on Sunday evenings or Monday mornings if I can remember it :O

This is really great progress man, I think you have earned some enthuseastic encouragement :D

I would just like to add that for long-term healthy nutrition you probably will have to eat some carbs. If you eat them in the morning, however, and stick to whole grains, it shouldn't affect your progress one bit.

Thank you for the encouragement :D It's always appreciated, and helps me to keep on going! :D

I'll continue like this for a while, but I'll take your advice into consideration :)

Weekly Update #1:
This (monday) morning I weighed in at 127.7kg (281.5 lbs). Thats 4.5 lbs loss this week!
Though I missed one days training due to oversleeping... But I'm happy with the result anyway.
It still feels good as well!

Happy war-gaming for any of you who're interested in this :P

Didn't go so well this week, though it could've been worse! I didn't lose all that much weight really.. but at least I didn't gain any! :)
I got drunk during the weekend so that might have something to do with it...



Starting weight:133 kg
Last weeks weight: 125.5 kg
This weeks weight: 125.4 kg
Weeks weight loss: 0.1 kg
Total weight loss: 7.6 kg!

Starting weight:133 kg
Last weeks weight: 125.4 kg
This weeks weight: 124.6 kg
Weeks weight loss: 0.8 kg
Total weight loss: 8.4 kg

Freaking awesome :D
