    3. Get Smaller, Faster, Stronger
    4. I started with a 5-6 day a week cardio for an hour and 10-20 min circuit. If I can keep it up I should be ready for bear the 15th and keep going from there.

    Weigh in last night - 336 lbs

    Lost 8 lbs in ten days. I have been severely limiting my food intake. I think the first 20-30 lbs are the easiest to lose when you are as over-weight as I am. I'm still shooting for 100lb loss.

    RYAN - Thanks for starting this thread and encouraging me to go for it!

    1.Current Weight = 180
    2.Goal Weight = ? (will see at the end of the summer) (IMO this shouldn't be a focus. The more you work on your routine and get in it you will find your ideal body weight. If you pick a number and hit that number your motivation and work ethics are likely to go by the way side)
    3.Other goals- to do another century ride this summer or the Tour de Tahoe.
    4.Cycle three days a week averaging 60-90 miles per week for four months. Continue to weight train and eat as healthy as I can. In August I will focus more on climbing and hauling a pack around.

    Current weight - 225
    Target weight - 195
    Training techniques - varieties of: running, mountain biking, backpacking, swimming, upper body strength training, Insanity circuit, shoot my bow, restrict my diet
    Measuring sticks (Goals) - compete in three local adventure races, finish in the top ten in one, group 12/12 arrows in a 4" target at 70 yards, climb the Lake Michigan sand dunes with a weighted pack for at least an hour, three times this summer (that's gonna suck!)

    Great idea for a thread! Ed Cole says, "It's not real unless it's written down." I've been talking about this for a month. I guess It's time to go on my first run. Thanks.

    Current weight 248
    Goal weight - under 220
    Training - I spend alot of hours on horseback working which helps build leg muscle and core strength. Also I've been heading out with a 43lb pack walking 3-4 miles through the steepest country around, trying to hit all the rocky sidehills to strengthen my ankles every other day. On my 6th week of doing it currently. I also pick out a rock at unknown range while winded and shoot one shot each trip, concentrating on making it perfect. I work on getting the rifle out of the eberlestock and on target quick and smooth using a bipod, pack, or improvised rest. Also I shoot my 22 or centerfire rifles 3-5 days per week all year. I don't want work my tail off to get a shot only to miss or worse cripple game.
    Goals - I will be 32 this summer and can't just rely on youth and effort to get around in the mountains anymore, so I need to make changes to keep tough hunts enjoyable. My goal is to be able to keep up with the guy I elk hunt with, a feat very few have ever accomplished.

    My biggest challenge is that I seem to have a much easier time gaining muscle than losing fat. Since starting my walking routine I have gained 8lbs. I am getting more fit and the hills are getting easier, but I really don't want to gain alot of muscle just lose the gut and tone up.
