This is my fat burning blog. Update for December 2011 I built this site to share some of the good and not so good experiences I have had with a fat burning diet. I have also kind of been getting into some of those weight loss TV shows lately, like the biggest loser. Occasionally I […]

The key to losing weight in 2012 and beyond I know there are a ton of people planning on losing weight in 2012. I want to share a few thoughts on it. I am not an expert on weight loss. I am an expert on my own weight loss. I won’t claim to know what […]
Another Random Rambling Weight Loss Update Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle Still Great My fat burning journey started about a year and half ago. It has been an interesting journey. I must say.

I know I have not updated my fat burning progress in quite some time. I’m just unreliable at times when it comes to updating these pages. I got some great news last week. I track my weight daily and average my weekly totals but I use my monthly doctor visit for my official totals. With […]
The importance of goals in weight loss. I know goals are important in everything in life. Just about every diet plan stresses the need for goals, not just fat burning diets. I just reached 85 pounds lost and I still don’t have a long term goal set. My short time weight loss goal was and still is to lose 100 pounds by the end of the year. That will be about 9 and a half months.
I’m sure I won’t have a problem reaching that following the fat burning diet that I use. I’m just not clear on how much further I need to go after that.
Ideal weight charts suck. I’m 6’1” I have seen as low as 164 and as high as 225 on different charts. Those numbers both seem wrong to me. I haven’t been below 220 since I have been this height. So therefore as far as weight I can’t set a number. I think somewhere between 200 and 210 but I don’t know for sure. I know 164 is freaking nuts. Hell I’d rather stay fat than be that skinny.
I figure I’ll know it when I get there. Fat burning diets focus on building muscle while losing fat. I’m hoping at around 205 with a low body fat percentage I’ll reach the shape I’m looking for. Who knows in the end I may even shoot for 225. So I guess it is not always possible to set an actual number when it comes to weight loss goals.
I definitely am beginning to believe the tape measure is much more important than the scale when it comes to burning fat.
As I’m sure everyone knows Meridia has been pulled from the US market. The dangers of these weight loss pills amaze me. On top of that recently there was the study that showed increased suicide risk in people who had undergone bariatric surgery. I know losing weight is hard. I just don’t understand why someone would assume all that risk, isn’t the point of losing weight to get healthier.
I’ll admit that I have tried fat burners myself to try and lose extra weight. I even tried thermogenic fat burners fairly recently. The truth is they helped some. That isn’t the point though. It dawned on me that I didn’t need them or the possible risks involved.
The truth is a good fat burning diet works. This in my opinion is much less work than preparing for and going through surgery. Of course this is also pretty much risk free. Forget the Meridia the Xenical or any of the fat burning pills, prescription or otherwise. Find a good diet and exercise program and follow it.
It’s all about taking responsibility and then taking action people. There is no magic pill. Weight loss takes hard work and dedication, but it is achievable. I’m still on my way to reaching goal, 85 pounds down as of today.
The Money Hungry finale on VH1 did not disappoint. The three teams that were left all deserved to be there. From the beginning my favorites were the Slenderellas and Mission Slimpossible. I hope the lady from Grading curves has a speedy recovery. That was a nasty spill. Slimpossible giving that 10 G’s to Grading Curves […]
