I could never sleep right after exercise. It might wear my body out but it gets my mind going like crazy.

Try taking some fish oil supplements, it usually helps me a lot with DOMS.

That, and foam rolling.

If I may suggest... the one thing I wish I had done was take progress pictures every week. Since you're at the start of your "journary" (as they say) it could provide incredibly inspirational in the next few months if/when you hit a plateau.

I had meant to post this before... here's my weight lost over the last year. Just some proof that weightloss is pretty much never linear.

Second on weight loss never being linear.

There are too many variables for weight to be an accurate measurement on a day-to-day basis anyway. If you want to eliminate all the variables, ensure that you're weighing yourself at the same time every day, directly after a trip to the bathroom, and before eating anything, on the same scale you've been using for the purpose (and even then, scales have a margin of error on them that could run as far as +/- 2-3 pounds).

The best measurement for overall health is a body fat percentage test. It's easy to measure that with a tape measure, to boot - and will give you a better indication of how well you're doing.

In general, you'll see the biggest loss in the first 4-6 weeks of a change in lifestyle (eating healthier and exercising more, preferably, but either one on its own will likely have some positive impact), then a short plateau, then 3-5 weeks later it'll steady out somewhat with minor fluctuations.

That said, if you're concerned with just your weight (and you shouldn't be!), then don't weigh yourself daily. Weigh in weekly or bi-monthly at most.

101 lbs lost.

Size L in shirts achieved.

For the first time in my life, I'm actually ok with being photographed, and looking in a mirror.

*Just not naked. I'm still working on that part.

I don't agree with this. And I know a lot of people don't agree with me on this, but I think it's helpful to know the fluctuations in your body. If you only weigh yourself twice a month then you could be met with an awful shock if you're up a few pounds or still stagnant. When I'm not being a bad player, I weight myself daily, naked, after having gone to the bathroom and before breakfast. It takes some getting used to, but it helps calm the panic you can get if you see the scale go up because you get used to knowing when you'll weigh more, or when you'll weigh less. For "fun", I'll weigh myself at night just to see how much weight I've "gained" throughout the day and it can easily be up 3-4 pounds depending on what I've had to eat. If I only weighed myself twice a month I might be panicking with numbers like that!

Also... totally ridiculous Shoju - congrats man!

Thank you Nika,

It feels pretty good, I'm sitting here in my office, waiting on a meeting to start, and for the first time in a VERY long time, I'm just focused on what the meeting is about, and not trying to make myself look like less of a total fat ass.

Since I made 100lbs faster than I expected, I'm going to set 180 (target weight, and 12 pounds) by christmas as my goal. That will put me ending the year at pretty close to the "first" goal weight. I want to get to 175, and then decide from there how much more I want / need to lose, and really start focusing on the "lester burnham" portion of my fitness journey.

Double cardio is working. Hit the 140s finally (149). Aiming to lose another 4 by Christmas still (so it's a good thing I'm eating Halloween candy right now...).

Also... I tried Zumba. As my friend said to me "I think you're a little past that by now...". So right. The cardio is too weak/low impact and it's just not a comfortable form of exercise for me. Ah well, was worth a shot - I wanted to try something new but I think I'll be sticking to my Jillian Michaels dvds and running.
