In Topic: My weight loss

05 June 2013 - 01:33 PM

What I've found to help is to start using a food journal in conjunction with a daily caloric intake limit that you set for yourself. Nothing too insane like less than 1000 calories as that basically forces your body to eat itself (i.e. muscles which you want to grow in lieu of fat. Source: physiology background at Northwestern). I have started setting it up so that I can max out around 1300 to 1500 calories so that a big guy like me (5'7", 220lb) can burn off the excess fat load on my body just by switching up into healthy eating. :tup: :lol: I lost 5 pounds in 7 days prior to implementing my workout regimen.

And yes, working out in conjunction with controlling and picking what you eat will work wonders.

It's pretty cool how the body quickly starts adapting to the longer runs once you give it the right fuels through your diet. :D Having you for inspiration I've noticed how quickly weight starts dropping once I've started feeding myself healthy foods. =)

When you say closed, do you mean it's out of business or just not open that day? :blink: :blink: :blink:

That last part is horrible advice about not telling them. :blink: While the paintball marker isn't a gun you should still tell them so that your baggage doesn't get delayed because some over zealous Homeland Security officer sees your marker when they scan your bags. It won't cost you anything extra by informing the airline staffers and as long as your regs are off your HPA tanks, you'll be fine. :tup:

This is directly pulled from the Southwest Airlines (SWA) Website (http://www.southwest..._tab_list_tab_7)

'Paintball guns are allowed in checked baggage and are not subject to the container requirements of firearms. Customers must declare the paintball gun to the Customer Service Agent at the ticket counter. Compressed gas cylinders are allowed in checked baggage or as a carryon only if the regulator valve is completely disconnected from the cylinder and the cylinder is no longer sealed (i.e., the cylinder has an open end). TSA Security Screeners must visibly ensure that the cylinder is completely empty and that there are no prohibited items inside.'

Hope this helps. =)
