Good job, your pack will be forty pounds lighter now!!

Clip those toenails and paint them white, for comfort and good luck.

Congratulations!! I'm almost with you. I was at 247 pounds in March and have a goal of getting under 200.

Six years ago I was pushing 275, easily out of breath and size 2 xl tops and 40" pants were getting tight. I began working out 5-6 days a week, focusing a lot on cardio and strength. I had gotten much more "fit" but still had plenty of fat. Prior to March my fitness was much improved, size xl tops and 34" pants. Right now I'm at 203 pounds. Still wearing the same sizes but they are fitting much looser. Can't wait to see the scale break that 200 pound mark. Leaving for a Coues deer hunt in 9 days, hope to see it happen before I go!

I've been following along with your posts. Best of luck on your hunt, you've earned it!

Congratulations! Great accomplishment already! Now go put some red on that white icing on the cake ;-)

Way to go Forest! Outstanding results seen from all of your hard work. I have a feeling those goats are in trouble! My goal this summer was to lose 20 pounds, only 25 more to go. :-)

From: Florida Mike

congrats Forest!

From: Franklin

Losing weight as we get older is not easy....good work. That comment about your toenails was just a joke...those could be a potential issue. Good luck you have addressed the number #1 problem for goat hunters....conditioning.

From: Scoot
20-Aug-18
Bou, just so I'm clear on what you're telling him, did you mean 1) "you deserve one man" or 2) "you deserve one, man!"? Big difference! :) Haha

Congrats again Forest! Now go get one, man! ;)

From: kota-man

Jeff, I stalled out at 202 for almost a week and a half.

210 was my nemesis. I was stuck there for entire month of July. August hit and boom, started falling off again. I'm sure I have hit just under 200 after a workout but I weigh myself at the same time each morning before the workout. Don't want to include the sweat loss.

I turn 50 in just a couple weeks. I will be in WAY better shape at 50 than I was at 40...or even 30 for that matter. I love the workouts.... and have accepted the better eating (I hate the term "diet"). Can't wait to follow your goat hunt.

20-Aug-18
Nice work, Forest! Scoot... well played, man! :)

20-Aug-18
Wowza. Congrats!!

Get em Forest.

Great job Forest!!! Now go run, Forest run and get 'em!

Scoot, it's like helping your Uncle Jack off a horse...

From: Shug

Good for you...isn’t it nuts that it takes an animal to have us try to get into shape?

From: Forest bows

I would lift heavy 3 days a week at least 30 minutes of hard cardio four times a week eat a lot of salad and protein shakes about it

Looks like your all ready for a great hunt. Hard work paying off, gotta love it.

congratulations on the hard part! Pick a spot and make it happen.

From: Russell

To reduce the leverage the bow induces, I would suggest rigging the bow as close to your back as possible. Secure to the side of your backpack worked well during my goat hunt.

Can't wait to see/read what's next. Sure hope it ends well for you.

From: Paul@thefort

I see the red spot but that looks like the same red I saw when trailing a wounded cow elk. The red turned out be be some mashed red berries on a log that a squirrel had left.

Good luck Forest. my best, Paul

08-Sep-18
Looks good! Looking forward to the story!

08-Sep-18
Good luck Forest!

From: Treeline

Hope that’s more than mashed berries!

From: Medicinemann
08-Sep-18
I don't see any berry plants around.....and there is no "height" to the red color.....implying that it is probably liquid rather than solid......I'm betting that it is blood from goat....probably a dead one. Might be time to check Facebook.....

08-Sep-18
Jake has Facebook? Say it isn't so?! Lol

Nice job, Forest!
