Week 7 Check in

Down 2 more lbs this week down to 267lbs. Seems like I’m on the 2lbs a week schedule. I’m happy with that... I wanted to be 260 by the end of the 8 week challenge, I might not make that. But honestly Ill be happy with anything under 266, That will be 30llbs in 8 weeks.

This is the last week of the Challenge so It’s time to take out all the stops.. and work my ass off...
So this week Ill keep the same diet 1500 calories a day all protein. Monday Wednesday friday will be fasting, Keep my same work out and cardio...

I have also decided since I’m making pretty good progress, I’m going to keep going 4 more weeks and make this a 12 week challenge and see how much fat I can loose.

Next Sunday Ill post up my 8 week progress pictures.

Week 8 final check in and end of the contest.
This weeks weight 263 lbs down from 267 last Sunday. So in total I’m down 33lbs in 8 weeks. thank you guys for all your diet help and supplements advice. I have a good 20 more lbs to go, I ve decided to keep going till I hit 240lbs. I have not been that light since 3 years ago and it took me 8 months to get there. I would say I’m a fan of the DNP, and think it helped a lot so Ill keep using it 5 days a week. I’m going to keep my calories between 1500 and 2000 a day. I noticed the weeks were my daily calories were not consistent, higher or lower each day, and fasting a day in between my weight dropped the most. Kind of like keep changing training so you dont get stale, keep your diet changing so. Your body’s doesn’t get use to it...

Keep up the good work. Make your mind up now that you're never going back. The real story will be told after you discontinue the DNP and see how you can maintain the lifestyle. People through numbers around all the time but 1,500 cals for a big man like yourself is no easy task. I have to give credit where credit's due, that takes drive and perseverance.

In time, once you settle into your final bodyweight, you're going to feel so good and your body will thank you. Would love to see the improvement in the blood work and vitals when that happens.

Body comp wise it looks like you lost more since the fat over the muscles decreased. When do you know who wins?

Great job all around.

They will let us know in the next week or so.. I’m hoping I did enough to win, if not at least I’m on track to hit 250 lbs by my birthday May 14th. Then I’d like to stay there, there is no reason for me to be 290lbs again.

Did you get to see who else entered and their results so you can gauge your chances?

Right now there is no way of knowing who entered and how the did. It’s kind of blind entries, and we dont get to see the other entries. I’m sure the winners will have pictures posted on their web site. For now its wait and see what happens. I bet I am in the top 10% of people who entered. That just my guess based on how hard it was to change my look..
