The Overweight Outdoorsman – Part 10, A Month Later

It has been over a month since my last blog entry on weight loss.  The past 30+ days have been busy with family activities and lots of trip planning for 2018.  I added a new summer fishing trip to the calendar this past week up in The Ely, MN area along the Echo Trail.

But, this is a weight update.  And I am on track to losing the 40 lbs I wanted to drop before my May BWCA solo camping trip.

The Overweight Outdoorsman – Part 10!

Starting Weight as of 12/7/17:  325 lbs.

Weigh in on 4/13/18:  286.6 lbs.  I have lost 38.4 pounds so far.

My Daily Routine

It really hasn’t changed much since I started.  I have not joined a gym and have just been slowing dropping the weight through diet and daily activities.  From week to week when I weigh in I usually loose between one and two pounds.

I’ve had to buy some new clothes, but have not purchased more than what I need to get by.  The weight will keep coming off, so once I start to level out on my weight loss I will start to get more serious about buying an entire new wardrobe.

  1. TD, Just wanted to congratulate you on your progress and I hope you keep posting. I started doing a group BW trip 6 years ago and in that time my weight has fluctuated between 220 and 250…closer to 250 now. I find that everything outdoorsy is just way more difficult at 250. Deer dragging this year in the UP was hard, huffing and puffing the whole way. I figure at 53, if I want to continue to be active in the outdoors, especially alone much of the time, I owe it to myself and my family to get healthier. You are an inspiration and I truly hope you achieve your stronger and more resilient self. Stick with it, I will too. We go in through entry point 30 May 17th, providing that the ice is out, maybe we will run into you. EB

    1. Thanks for the awesome post. Still plugging away at the weight loss. Things have slowed down a little, but it’s still ticking off little by little. I had a big eye opener this past October dragging a deer out of the woods… never felt so drained and exhausted doing that before. It made we rethink things a lot. I do many of my outdoor activities solo, so I need to take better care of myself.

      I too am keeping an eye on the ice off this year. I think it will be okay for my trip on The 23rd at entry 64. The temps the next few weeks are looking very promising. There are a couple webcams at various resorts up there that I have been watching to see how the melt is progressing.

      Thanks for reading and the comment, EB!
