“are you a bigger loser than marko?” update, week 7

i made it through my week of vacation in mexico, dieting. it was rough not to indulge in all the yummies normally associated with vacation, especially one in mexico where they were serving margaritas and pina coladas on the beach! but i was a good boy, and enjoyed my morning workouts in the gym while my family was still asleep.

i lost 4 pounds even this week, for a 7 week grand total of 40.2 pounds. 5 weeks to go before the end of the competition. my original goal was “at least 30, but 40 would be nice.” now i’m thinking, “at least 50, but 60 would be nice.” i doubt i’ll get to 60 in the 12 week competition timeframe, but even passing 50 pounds in 12 weeks will be quite the happy accomplishment. that would put me under 200 pounds for the first time in about 9 years.

  1. congrats on the continued loss. I’m officially down 31 lbs from teh beginning. I’m below 250 for the first time since high school. Its kinda cool! My new goal is 240 but again i think i’ll be able to hit that fairly easy so maybe 230…crazy!!! thanks again for doing this!

  2. i would be interested in knowing what your workout routine is. although i’ve not been competing with you, i have been fortunate to lose over 15 pounds without a workout in the same timeframe. i’d like to speed this process up a little bit and was wondering what your workout is like.

  3. pat — i’m basically working out about 6 days a week, making sure i do cardio every time, and some other stuff most of the time.

  4. nice job! I threw down five and was hoping (in a good way) that you slacked off a bit and I’d do somce catching up on ya. Impressive bro!

  5. Great job Marko. I’m back on track this week and I know it’s not for a contest but rather for overall health. Though i won’t be bigger loser than you for the contest, I should be in your range next time we see each other.

  6. Way to go! I would be willing to host a similar contest for YS, BTW, called the biggest gainer. Just in case this one proved to be too successful not to repeat.

  7. Marko, that is great! I am below 200 pounds now for the first time in probably 10 years. I am hope you make it. But I think you will be needing to get a new Michigan football jersey.

  8. I got resigned from my youth pastor job and lost 30 lbs in 3 months just not sitting in an office eating candy :) Saved me the trouble of working out:) Again, great job Marko!
