    Eastmans' Get "Hunting Fit" Challenge - April Update

    Okay, you hard-workin', weight-losin', endurance-gainin' hunting addicts, time for an update. Put your starting weight, current weight, net loss, and goals accomplished and keep pushing each other toward our goals. Here's mine (and it ain't pretty yet, but'll get better):

    Start 232
    Current 230
    Net loss 2
    I started off with a bang, losing 8 lbs. in 11 days. Unfortunately, I had two big roadtrips (not good), two colds (thanks daycare kids!), and fell off the wagon a bit. So, not happy with the first month, but hoping to be 220 by the end of April.

    Let's hear your story.

    Don't feel bad Ryan, I'm right there with ya. 180 at start, 178 now.....2 big ones! Guess I'm not so much worried about the weight as getting in better shape. I do feel a little better though, wife And I went out shed hunting the other day, put on a few miles and I'm trying to eat better......we'll get there.

    Yeah, I hear ya! Started @ 344 lbs lost a quick 8 lbs in 10 days now I'm at 335 for a total of nine pounds in a month. I hit the wall too. Gotta start increasing my exercise time. Want to lose at least 50 pounds for my late August archery hunt in the GIANT Sequoias of the Sierra Nevada Range.

    current 148
    net loss 17 on top of this I've gained 10 in muscle All in all I feel great!!
    I'm happy with my lose now I just got to keep it off.
    This is my wall for now since I can't work out for now.I want to lose more but for now I'm going to have to be happy with it as I'm out with a injury{from work} to my left knee just had my MRI today.Doc thinks I'm going to need surgery that I torn something.Hope he's wrong. Ten days until bear season I'm going hunting even if I have to sit in my car.
    Chin up everyone you can do it Just remeber the end game!
    Can you handle the challenge.... hunt hard but safe!!

    Started out at 170 stopped drinking Mt. Dew and lost 13lbs in 3 weeks, started lifting and running and now am at 167, can't seem to lose the spare tire around my waist, I'm thinking I might have to hit more cardio. Good luck all!

    Start: 223
    Current: 205
    Net loss: 18
    I've been working my tail off! I pulled a muscle in my chest so I stopped lifting and have been concentrating solely on cardio and weight loss. Feeling pretty good so I signed up for my first 5K in June, maybe look for one in May also. Hope to be healed up when I reach my target weight so I can start lifting again,but then will probably gain allot of pounds back, just not as fat. When I was in the best shape of my life( many moons ago!) I weighed 220. I really want to end this cycle of getting in shape for hunting, then fattening up for winter!!!

    Well...Start weight was 220. Current 211. ( 9 pounds down.) However it was as low as 205, then back up to 215. I need to stop holding on to the counter top I guess! lol....but, but, my wife is making a batch of BBQ ribs so big it is bigger than the pan!! How am I supposed to say no to that? Been walking with the wife and kids. Bought a bag of sand, and will start hauling that around in my frame pack to work out the hips and gluts. I hear the school opened up the track finally, so going to start running again too!
    I hunt because......

    Down to 207 lbs, 5lbs in the last month, 13 lbs for the year so far. Started P90X 21 days ago, its kicked my butt some days, but I can tell the difference in my waistband and in the mirror already, even if I dont have much weight loss to show for it so far.
