Wow wow wow.... and thank you. i never expected to get that kind of response. I still havent sorted through my emails.

hugs and kisses to you all.

Truth is, i may be moving to springfield and getting an in house job. I feel really fat and need to spend as much time as possible losing weight. So i changed my diet completely and am walking as much as possible. i have been searching for apartments and trying to talk my mom into moving out there too She is 80 and stubborn.

A friend told me to YouTube my weight loss so that I held myself accountable with that..... but I recorded some trucking videos first lol

Hopefully everything works out as well as you hope! I know you mentioned it in a different thread, but those Leslie Sandsone walking videos on youtube are great. My wife used them after pregnancy and dropped 60 pounds in 7 months. Of course a healthy diet is also needed, and doing them in a truck isnt very feasible to get the most out of the workout.

Oh great, another YouTube Trucker, just what we neededsmile.gifrofl-3.gif

Many ways to lose weight. I struggle with it constantly. Got 70 lbs off - labs and BP are good - but by "the charts" I still have another 40 to go.

Happy you are making an effort to restore your health, as you get older, it gets more difficult - and the consequences are cumulative.

Best of luck to you.

Im down about 8 pounds in 2 weeks. My DOT physical is coming up so i can see what the real numbers are compared to the scales at a truck stop.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Probably not what you're planning to do, but ...

When I came off the road and started teaching CDL backing, I was standing & walking around on pavement for about 8 hours a day. Lost 80 pounds, and 10 inches in my waist.

I think getting out of that cab and not having such an opportunity to snack all day contributed.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Good luck, Rainy. I bet everybody was worried that you had a more serious problem to deal with, not that weight loss is not serious. You have lot's of company here in the weight loss category, including me. Now that I have a very physically demanding construction job going, it's really working for me, but I've got another 15 lbs. to go, 20 would be even better. One driver I know went from 238 down to 150 by fasting. I've been doing research on fasting and may take the plunge in some way, shape or form myself. There are different forms of it. This guy is 72 years old andis as light on his feet as a teenager. Plus his joints don't hurt anymore, like mine do.

Or you could move to my town and I'll buy you a tool belt, hammer, utility knife, etc. and teach your how to build houses! (LOL)

I have been fasting for about 2 months and it has been really good. There are several versions of it and I never did it because I do not believe in "starvation diets"

After reading on these methods I began to understand it a little better. I simply eat between 11am and 8 pm. Sleep takes up most of my "fasting time" It really kick-started my weight loss. I obviously still watch what I eat from 11-8 but have adjusted to it and prefer it.
