TD30303[501st] Posted July 10, 2013 Report Share Posted July 10, 2013 Hey Troops! So i'm sitting here reading this after doing my morning workout and thought i'd share my story. In 2010 I was 5'11" and weighing in at about 310. I had really let myself go after marriage, kids, being a stay at home dad, and a diet of garbage. Job wise (i'm an actor) it actually helped me being that big, everyone needs a guy that can sing Shipoopi. in March, my father passed away at the age of 55. He was overweight as well and wore it for a long time. It finally caught up to him along with some other illnesses, but it hit me hard. I started losing weight then, walking here and there, being able to finish 2 miles in under 30 minutes on the treadmill was a good day for me. In about 6 months I lost 40lbs. Keeping me at the 260-270 range. I was thrilled, but had more room to go. I started touring with a show in Late 2010 and began working out regularly, and started running. Which has been my lifesaver. It makes me focus, and i enjoy it so much. Since January of 2011, i've run 3 half marathons and a full marathon. This January i'm running a race down in Disney World called the "Dopey Challenge". It's a 4 day event, each day consisting of a race in this order: 5k, 10k, 1/2 Marathon, Full Marathon. Hence the Dopey Part. 48.6 miles, in 4 days. I've been holding at the 230-240 range, so i decided that in conjunction to the 48.6 miles that I am running i'm going to lose an additional 48.6lbs by the time race day comes. So 192 by January 9th. That's the goal. -Running 4 times a week combined with P90X. That's the current plan of attack. -Also, new vegetarian (about 6 weeks in). It's a double edged sword. I eat lots of carbs which i need to cut out in order to maximize potential. I desperately want to look better in my armor. I want my neck seal to not make me look like i have a double chin, I want to feel better. I feel great now, but I know that theres room to grow. Thanks for listening troops!
