Weight Loss Wednesday ~ Week 7 ~ Fitness Tracking


what’s going on everybody it is weigh in
Wednesday the start a week seven here so the weight-loss competition I got going
on with James over there at Juan de les estate and I’m excited let’s get right
to the weigh-in see what we are today dum-dum-dum week seven weigh-in
to put this into perspective one week ago on week six I was one ninety point
six what are we today one eighty eight point
two well not a monster amount of weight loss in a week but two point four pounds
in seven days nonetheless brings my total for this 90-day challenge to
twenty two point six pounds lost which is pretty incredible I’m well on my way
to hit that thirty pound mark in ninety days I am seeing some unbelievable
changes in both my body and my facial features my attitude my depression my
energy level my my pop I’m waking up earlier in the day and I’m still eating
healthy which is just incredible and so cool man
I honestly have not been in this good of shape since I was in my early 20s and
I’m working hard see what you guys don’t see from week to week is all the
behind-the-scenes dedication to eating healthy or at least a lot healthier than
I was previously on YouTube I’ll think about all the stuff I’ve dropped and
swapped for I’m still not eating the best but I am seeing just you know
pounds and pounds shaved every week and this is just so cool man I feel
fantastic James this was a trick I know it was because even though I can’t beat
you because he’s like walking like nine miles a day or more you’ve changed my
life man I’m so excited every day to keep this up I do have some updates to
share with you last week if you missed last week’s week six check-in I was
talking about exactly what I eat every single day and exactly what workout I do
for how long and the reps and everything like really specific details and what I
forgot to mention is that this changes as far as the workouts every single week
in fact in just seven days now I’m already noticing that on the body boss
system I’m adjusting the band’s to have more
tenshun already and my reps nearly all my reps from last week are changed
instead of 20 they’re now 33 times you know it’s just it’s always gonna change
because you always want to push yourself so I can’t just say it’s gonna be this
amount of push-ups each day no it’s constantly changing if I start
capping how much I’m gonna work out and base it on week one or week two I’m not
going to be able to maintain and continue to lose weight and I am doing
the hardest work I’ve ever done in three months trying to lose as much weight as
possible so I can get to a target way and then start working on toning up so I
mean I just I feel fit I hope you guys have seen it I feel fantastic and I’m
full of energy it’s not caffeine I swear right now I’m wearing an extra-large
shirt he’s right all my shirts are and I’m just I’m swimming in an extra large
shirt which kind of looks funny eventually I’ll probably be getting
larger medium shirts but right now that it is what it is and I’m just working
out in them and I’m just gonna support it anyway you know it’s been a while
since I’ve done the before and after and and understand that I’m uncomfortable
baring it all on camera but it is kind of essential to take a look back so just
bear with me I want to show you some body changes real quick now first of all
I joked about this last week but getting my my neck features back and my my
jawline starting to get more defined kind of like it was when I was in my
early 20s but definitely a slimming down here in the face area and every time I
walk into the bathroom and look at myself in the mirror I’m kind of just
shocked at first I’m like holy cow and then you know getting these new muscles
up here it’s it’s it’s it’s weird to see it’s been a long time so I’m seeing
definitely some physical changes when I look in the mirror and because I know
how much you guys just love looking at my Simpsons tattoos again this is week
one January 1st of 2020 okay compared to the progress I have here at the
beginning of week seven six full weeks of working out and making huge lifestyle
changes I’m losing weight around the midsection I’ve obviously still got some
work to do we’re only about halfway through basically man Tony my midsection
I am gaining muscles and adding new muscles all over my body I
don’t know if you see the change but I definitely see a huge change in my body
in just six full weeks also noticing some changes in my thighs much more
muscles and in my calves that’s mainly due to all the elliptical workouts I’ve
been doing I feel like I’m gonna look back at this video and laugh because I’m
so proud of where I am I’ve never looked this good or felt this good since I was
in my early 20s and there’s still so much work to be done obviously but still
these are huge improvements and I hope you can see the difference because I
can’t stop looking at the difference in in my body and everything so I need to
lose exactly seven point four pounds in the next five weeks to reach my thirty
pounds in 90 days goal which at this point well nothing’s guaranteed but you
know I am finding that the temptations well they’re not as bad as they used to
be because hanging out with other people tends to tempt me a little more also
just being in areas where there happens to be a taco bell right across the
street or I Drive past a Burger King’s obviously there’s there’s some things
that I’m like oh I wish I could but right now I think I’m in a really unique
situation living in an RV and doing this challenge because inside this RV I mean
I am literally completely in control of everything okay I put what I want in
that fridge in the freezer oftentimes I am boondocking or camping away from
places that would break my diet or make me feel guilty so really this is a great
environment to lose weight and stay on this new lifestyle you know food goal
whatever you call it but I ain’t gonna lie I’m tempted all the time every time
I turn the TV on to see commercials I’m like its pizza its its pasta its
hamburgers it’s everything that I’ve been avoiding in 2020 soda
Bud Light I mean I couldn’t possibly sit here and say that this is not difficult
that I’m not making non-stop conscious choices to do the right thing for me for
nobody else but but for me that and maybe that’s why this is working so well
because if I if I cheat myself I mean there I’m not cheating anybody
I’m literally just ruining it for myself so that’s all I’m saying it’s working
really well I’m really happy you don’t see all the behind the scenes stuff and
there’s a lot going on but look I have found a new way to track my progress
both through the Apple watch series v and my iPhone 11 Pro and that is the
health app before I go into the health app and show you some specifics here you
know I’ve talked in the past about the watch itself helping me close certain
rings as far as moving and exercise and standing 12 hours a day and tracking
calories and stuff like that but what the watch doesn’t tell me necessarily is
also the other natural calories that I’m burning just throughout the day without
my workout so the health app on here is really helping me look at something
which has changed everything and I’m not a professional or anything but look if
you want to lose weight there’s no magical science behind it but you need
to work off more calories than you’re bringing in so if you’re bringing in
2,000 calories a day you need to be burning more than 2,000 calories each
day to be able to drop some pounds I don’t care who you are that’s just the
simple mathematics of losing weight you don’t need to be a nutritionist
or an expert to know that now sure it’s probably better to eat better foods but
last week I showed you that I’m keeping Erik why don’t you just throw the iPhone
on the ground you know it’s it’s only a 14-under dollar phone anyways I showed
that I’m consuming less than 1200 calories a day every single day bottle
what was it 11 82 calories a day that I’m bringing in let me show you
something real quick okay so don’t judge me or anything as I show you some
specifics here but as my iPhone shows all the dates these three rings it’s
showing you there’s a couple days like the 15th there I play wasn’t feeling
very well I didn’t finish my exercise or my my move there but see how the move
says that I did 614 of 700 calories hit in the exercise this one doesn’t say
calories let me go back so if we go back and look at February 9th for example
this is my active energy these are my workouts and as you can see it lists the
exact amount of calories I burned eight hundred and
calories.that day day before 775 then a bad day 568 then is almost a
record-breaking 1209 burned calories none of this includes your normal
resting calories so again if we go back to our rings this was a really good day
where everything kind of looped around and I overdid it a little bit but this
is Wednesday February 5th last week on weigh-in of last week where is it right
there you can see right there it does the total calories and we can see that
but 3541 total calories which includes my workout and my normal burned calories
go to the next day Thursday again 3243 calories Friday was a cheat day not
gonna be as good what does I say 26:43
again now these are not James type numbers because I don’t hike like him
but if you’re doing the math along with me I’m eating I’m consuming 1200
calories I’m burning an average of like 3000 calories a day 1200 3000 burned
again you don’t need to be an expert scientist here or anything but I’m
burning double what I’m putting in my body
therefore my body has no choice but to lose weight every single week that’s not
to say I’m not working hard and look some of these nights come by and it
reminds me hey you still got 20% left on this might be raining I may have to put
a jacket on walk to the Walmart and do three laps around the outer perimeter of
Walmart in the store to finish that and you know I’m on it
I like being able to track it I like being held accountable but with my walk
in and exploring and filming and my workouts at night my cardio and my
strength training I’m still in this perfect rhythm to continue to get fitter
and to lose weight more importantly that’s the main goal right now for this
90 days is to lose weight and I know I got two hundred and seven thousand of
you out there who all have some sort of opinion on what I should be doing
instead and I have mentioned that I appreciate all this awesome advice but
still give me some credit I’m sticking to my
plan and it continues to work every single week I’ve never in my life seen
this kind of results so possibly I’ll take into account some of the other
advice that people have been giving me starting April 1st as I begin phase 2 of
this new healthy journey in life but let’s see I’m putting lemon in my water
for a little change which is great you know like two or three quarter slices of
a lemon squeezed in my water and tastes great makes it a little different so if
I get a gallon of water at least a day haven’t been walking as much as I’d like
to really lately because of the rain the rain has been changing today I mention
that week seven again raining again seven straight Wednesday’s with the
ringing outside I would love to be doing something different in filming outdoors
for a Wednesday weigh in it ain’t gonna happen I don’t think but I got plans I
got things going on I’m trying to get healthy I’m gonna stick with this and I
got an awesome video coming up here in just two days on Friday so don’t go
anywhere anyways guys I love y’all James you’re
watching this and don’t just go ahead and brag you lost more than me but you
know what I lost more than I ever thought I possibly could at age 38 so
anybody can have a new me and that’s the cool part about it guys take care I’ll
see you on Friday and I’ll see you again next Wednesday for week eight weigh in
Wednesday bye guys

  1. Your doing it pal keep up the great work. Pretty soon they are going to be calling you a
    Skinny Bastard. LoL
    It’s the best thing you could have ever done for yourself for sure.

  2. And to add, wait until he finds a female and sees how much longer he can go!! Yeah a buddy of mine that lost 105 down to 198 found that out and his wife thinks hes another man!
    Ok, he did shave a large hedge off his face on his 6'1" frame after he hit his mark!
    And his bike accelerates a lot faster!

    But it's the satisfying of the females that is the best part instead of feeling and looking like a beached whale that counts!

  3. Congrats Eric! Your new healthy lifestyle is super! It would be great if you can incorporate new healthier eateries in your voyages and share them, like Mediterranean, Indian, Vegan, or Japanese restaurants on your cheat days along the road? Hope you let us know if you do find healthy places on the way.

  4. How about a Weightloss Wednesday behind the scenes video? At 227lbs you just inspired me to order the workout system. Keep up the great work!

  5. Oh guy mosh, Eric, never curb your enthusiasm. You're doing great, and it shows. I'm a 65 year old fart, and get my exercise splitting wood and doing stuff around the farm, but seeing you working out and making lifestyle changes, and taking joy from it. It makes me happy, for you. Keep going young man!

  6. Can I say “Proud of you!” Without sounding condescending? At 38 you DO REALIZE you are up against that middle age nemesis called METABOLISM! The dreaded “M” and I have not been on speaking terms for awhile now. 🤨

    So YAY YOU for putting the beatdown to what is nothing less than a monumental task! Let’s give it up for Eric, folks! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽🎉🥳👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

  7. Congratulations, I am so happy for you. You are doing it all right and your body is thanking you for it. Keep up the good work, I just know you will reach your goal. 👍🙂

  8. You look much better. Please do the same for Jax. I worry more about him than you which is why I stopped watching your channel.

  9. Very happy for you Eric! Yes I can see changes, & good ones at that! Love you & Jax too! Eric, Happy Valentines Day to you both! From Googley & I!

  10. Shoot for your personal best everyday. Proud of you. Your inspiring. Pat yourself on the back. I’m still going to the “shed” soon.

  11. Eric don't worry about your clothes looking big or baggy on you. I would rather have lose fitting clothes than tight fitting clothes for comfort. My opinion is lose fitting clothes look better on a person than tight fitting clothes except for beautiful fit women in tight leggings, spandex and bikini's of course : )

  12. Yes, we can definitely see a huge change! It's pretty amazing. You look great and feeling so good mentally and physically is even more important! You should really be proud of yourself.

  13. Eric you look awesome. Now I just got to get a membership at the y to lose weight. You and my friend losing so much weight is making me feel like it's time for myself to lose weight. Also about the rain in my town alot of older people use the mall to walk around in.

  14. Eric, you might want to get a kettlebell and incorporate it into your workout regimen. It doesn't take up much space and you only need one. I would say a 20 to 30 lb one to start. Kettlebell Kings makes a really nice one with a lifetime warranty. The thing about a kettlebell regimen is that you can get cardio, fat burning and muscle building all in one routine and you can not it out really quickly. There's numerous workouts on YouTube. It looks like your doing really well with your dedication to being healthy.

  15. Eric I love your channel and videos! Major kudos on the weight loss and transformation, it's INCREDIBLY noticeable!…. Your math is wrong tho… 🤐 can't wait for more videos!

  16. Your a inspiration to many my friend…. Make this a continual lifestyle change for life my friend …. The 90 day challenge is good for goals and motivation… Your doing fantastic and look so much better….. Mark UK

  17. Did you have your last meal at night an hour earlier like we discussed….? Would like to know if you have and have had better results …. I walk 8 miles daily but do 3/4 normal speed and the last quarter fast and repeat and I eat chicken and veg and porridge for breakfast and use honey instead of sugar….I dropped my carbs low like you and in 11 months Ive dropped over 122 lb…. And I had to fight through 3 plateaus….I had a bad back injury doing deadlifts has I use to body build but the injury tor my muscle if my back literally…I was out of the gym and any exercise for over 3 years due to this… I gained so much weight and depression set in because I couldn't walk 5 yards with out morphine but now I'm back and on fire my friend….I passed my personal trainer courses and I'm qualified to train others then I studied nutrition and sports science…. Aerobic and lifting weights is the happy medium for weight loss and core strength…. If you hit a plateau message me and I will support you and help you…. Keep up the great work and remember the body gets used to routines and results will slow…. Shock your body Eric to move through it…. Keep it up 👍👍👍🇬🇧

  18. I love your attitude! There are many walking videos available on youtube. I've done several myself when stuck inside. 🙂 Keep up the great work!

  19. YOU LOOK AMAZING, ERIC, AND I'VE MET YOU IN PERSON (A FEW MONTHS BACK AT THE SAFEWAY IN OLYMPIA). SO PROUD OF YOU. THANK YOU FOR BEING SUCH AN INSPIRATION.

  20. Great work on the diet keep it up ! Btw Ive never heard someone use the words I ME MINE AND IM AS MUCH AS YOU DO ……Just saying………
