The season should help in the continuing weight-loss goal.

I hope there is some Plaidman left for this fall's Facelift...

Thx Studley for posting up that pic from last week.

Choss is good to make Plaid appreciate granite even more.
El Cap granite is SO GOOD!

Mister E I will be at Facelift even though I will be a shodow of my former self.

Good for you!! Getting the weight off is a bitch, especially after 40. Keep up the hard work. The rewards for getting to your ideal weight (and staying there) are worth the effort!

Thx Ncrockclimber. I have definitly made rhe lifestyle change.
I have a new mind set on food and eating.
For instance when I eat my snack
it is raw almonds. I know that 23 is 200 calories.
I eat 5 at a time, chew them thoughly eating 5 more.

Now at 182. 6 more pounds to go to get to a net lose of 40 pounds.

Tried to climb a 5.11b yesterday. I think my arms are broken. Lay backs on finger tips is hard work.

Much easier now. My foot work was good. Lose more climb better.

What was that formula? <# = >FUN!!!! Fun should have a symbol. :)!

So

<# = >:)!

179 this morning. That is 37 pounds gone, gone, GONE! That is a confirmed 6 inches off my waist. WAIT! I now have a waist. Maybe I could buy a waist coat. Whatever that is?

I reached my goal! I am now at 176. That is 40 pounds since Feb. I have been taking it easy since the surgery on my mouth. Still eating right though. Going climbing tonight with my wife at Beacon Rock!

I originally in Oct. of 2012 set a goal to lose 40 pounds. I was 210 then so to stay true to the first goal I will continue to lose. So 6 more pounds to go. So I am now shooting for 170. At 5' 6" I think I have a few more to lose. I think I will try to get to 155. I was told by a coach/trainer that that was doable. We will see.

All I know is that I am a sending machine!

Thanks Mark! Sure has been the best gift I could EVER give myself. Feel fit and ready to send whatever.

I am going up Mt. Adams next weekend to get my son his first glaciated summit so that he can be a real deal Mazama like his dad. Should be fun. A buddy of mine is a cheerleader coach and is taking his team of girls up. That should be fun for my boy.

Looking forward to my time in The Valley in Oct. I think I have earned it.

ANOTHER 2 POUNDS DOWN. I led something last night that I have had on the list for the last 4 years. Got it clean. Super psyched. Lighter is better. I'm a sending machine!

Plaidman led the infamous "butthole" 2nd pitch on Young Warriors at Beacon Rock. Sketchy gear, chossy rock, and sustained climbing, its a head game for sure. Way to send Plaid, you are getting after it and getting it done.

Congratulations plaidman. The last time I was at 176 was 30 years ago in college while on the swim team. Then I started playing rugby and bulked up to 200 pounds and was right around there for years. Then my health went south and I gained a bunch of weight because I couldn't be as active as I was accustomed to. I ballooned to 252 this winter. Now I am down to 240 and I hope to keep taking it off.

Don't hate me cause I'm fat
Love me cause I beat anorexia

heh heh..

Hit 172 this morning. Getting closer to the Oct 2012 goal. Just 2 more pounds to go! That's 44 pounds down since Feb.

Here are another set of before and after Photos. I'm not sick I'm just a little green. It's not easy being green.
