This is my resolve. Can't Post

Well I made a few jumps in 2007 with my aim being my license. Well I injured myself (my fault) and baloon'd up to 275 lbs Shocked. Now I am on a mission to get back up in the sky in May of 2013 to go back for my license. I have already lost 16 lbs. I work out daily and have changed my diet completely. I can't wait to jump again.

I have resolved to change my life and start skydiving again.

I can't wait.

Good for you!!!Smile


So, many people find reason why they CAN"T do something, it is refreshing to see somebody making the effort to do something.


There are so many excuses why we don't do what we really want and not enough resolve to achieve a goal.


Congrats on your resolve and good luck.


Be safe!!!

That's awesome! And I think it's good that you're giving yourself a reasonable amount of time to lose the weight. It seems too many people get impatient and set themselves up to fail by expecting too much too soon.

Keep us posted on your progress! It's exciting when the pounds start to melt off.

Well today is day 64 since I decided to make this decision and as of today I am now at 253 lbs!! Lost another 1 1/2 lbs last week! I stretch everyday, strength train mon-fri, and do cardio as much as I can.

I can't wait until March. My wife is even on board now and is almost more excited than I am.

Have you run across this guy's story? More extreme than you, but a similar strategy of setting a goal.

Good story man. Too many people see something they want, and say they can't ever do it. Not alot of people are willing to put in the work to achieve!

Well I lost another lb this past week and am currently 252 lbs. Starting at 275 lbs that's stilll not too shabby since I'm only 70 days in. I obviously need to start to work harder to brake 250 by next Monday. I want to get into the tunnel and start flying again before next season starts.

Yippee!! I think of my husband who has been obese most of his adult life-265 at his heaviest. Over the course of the past year and a half, he's lost over 80 lbs. I think slow, gradual changes are so much more sustainable. For him, it was the changes to his diet that really kickstarted his weight loss.

Interestingly, he started to feel more confident, too. And women started checking him out. Wink

Keep it up!! It just gets better and better. Smile

Re: [jessicamarie] This is my resolve. [In reply to] Can't Post

The women checking me out has definitely started! My wife hit on me yesterday! It was wicked hot.

Yeah changing your diet and understanding what your body needs to sustain is so much better than any stupid diet that's out there.

All I am doing is watching what I eat and working out.

That's it.

Feeling better and looking better is definitely a plus but my major plus will be when I get that letter A with a number combination after it. Sly

Woot! You're down to about what I was on my first AFF jump! Since july 7th, I've lost about 20 pounds. Not so much because Skydiving is a workout, but I finally have some motivation to get in shape! Just from eating a bit less and doing some pushups and situps in the morning, it's just been coming off!

I read your other thread that you resurrected. That was kinda weird, getting 6 years of updates when I was expecting the timeline to be less. I had to go back and look at the dates while scratching my head.

I imagine a lot HAS happened in 6 years, but I'm glad to see you're back in the sport. I don't see many people who seem to have the enthusiasm that you do. You were excited to have surgery!

Hopefully this time around, it'll be the right time for you! Do keep us posted on your progress!

Re: [DanDanInc] This is my resolve. [In reply to] Can't Post

you can do it, bro! I lost 140 myself...and no, that's not a divorce joke. I really was freakin huge. Stay with it, stay strong, train with intensity, and keep your eyes on your goal - not a number on a scale, but the ability to do what you want to do! DO IT!

THANK YOU! I know I can do it! I lost another lb this past week for a total of 29!!

My trainer told me that I am allowed to start my aff when I hit 225 because of all the strength training I am doing. That's only 21 more lbs to lose!

I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!! Laugh

Re: [FlyingRhenquest] This is my resolve. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm glad the thread was still there. I wish I still had the video. Lot's of people don't believe how bad it really was. It was a freak accident that was my fault.

Definitely won't happen again. I am definitely enthusiastic!! I can still remember what it felt like 6 years ago to be sitting at the door excited to roll out of the plane for my cat B. This time around I will remember to pull.

I have an old Altimaster V on my lunch bag that I stare at every day. I would wear it on my wrist everywhere but that would be taking it a bit to far. Either way I won't forget to pull this time and I will be a skydiver hopefully before I turn 35. Smile

hahahahaha

Re: [jessicamarie] This is my resolve. [In reply to] Can't Post

Well I was bound to have at least one week where I didn't lose any weight. Still at 246 lbs. I will obviously have to stop eating cake for breakfast and cookies for lunch for a while. It is good to know that I didn't gain any weight even though I ate like an asshole all week long and didn't do any strength training. Time to start lifting more, pushing myself harder, and eating better. (I didn't GAIN any weight which is a positive note) Angelic

For those following my progress... I'M SORRY! I WON'T LET IT HAPPEN AGAIN. *bangs head against the wall*Pirate

What accident are you talking about? I cant find you explaining anywhere what happened to you. Good job on loosing weight to jump again, skydiving seems to be a great motivation for people to turn their life around. Good luck :)
