I was a little hesitant to post on this one, but maybe it will help keep me honest.  I started the year at about 165.  I put on about 5 pounds through this year and then another 5 after Augusta.  I am current between 170 and 175.  Want to get down to 160-165 as normal weight and under 160 for race weight.

No specific plan to do that yet.  I have cut way down on the booze - may even try to cut it out completely.  Also trying to eat more healthy foods and watch the portion size.

Currently trying to maintain @ 162.  After the first I'll try to start back at losing a few pounds.  I'd like to race Tahoe close to 150, but anything under 160 will be fine.

fwiw, I find my best weight loss occurs in March/April when I get back on the bike for some LSD rides.

currently ~230.  would like to get back down to college weight of 195.  short term i would like to be ~220 for the run up hogpen in january.  

this would be lot easier if someone created a beer that makes you lose weight.

I would like to not drop below 150 as I ramp up my training.  I have managed to maintain 155 but find that once I ramp up training, I will lose weight regardless of how much I eat (and that's a lot).

That being said, I would also like to only have like 1500 Kcal of my diet be 'junk' food vs about 3000 of it.

I'm currently right about 156-158.

Currently at slightly less than 160lbs.

I don't care to lose or gain much, in terms of weight, but I do want to add more lean muscle and lose a little more fat. Let's call it a shift. I think that it can only help my performance, especially if I focus on ST the core.

Wife and family won't go for further reduction in weight. They already think I look like a P.O.W. and have started to apply pressure for me to gain weight.

Soda, beer, and other not so great foods have already been cut out and the extra swimming has already yielded some decent results, but I'm going to need to really focus on this goal to make significant gains.

Love reading these. Funny how we each deal with this particular challenge. Anyway, I am shooting for the 180s this year! Once I can break the 190 barrier, I am sure it will snowball closer to 180 flat. I raced very well in the low 190s this year after starting the year at 220. If I can keep the watts up and the pounds down, letting the stress reaction in the foot heal up, it could be another decent year for the Slayer.

For the record, I will be using Ucan this year until I disprove the MET/UCan pairing as the prime way for me to feed myself during long course racing and training. This is a step up from HIM to IM year, so hoping for the best. Massive discounts this week on the product at their website and hit me up for my code if you want it.

There is huge potential for error in using weight as a metric (body fat v muscle, delicate v sturdy frame, water intake, etc), so I try not to focus on it. That said, I'm hovering around my goal weight (little higher with the holidays) of 118. This number is completely arbitrary, though, and i selected just it because it is what my drivers license says I weigh.i AM trying to eat cleaner, though, and have found that it helps me feel better. Jay was right about the carbs and Doug was right about my beloved cereal. i was eating a lot of empty carbs and sugar-heavy cereal. My digestion and body feel better when I save myself for quality carbs (really good bread, pie, etc) and substitute quality vegetables instead. I am not giving up beer and nachos, but could stand to moderate my intake of those a bit.Kate Brun posted a quote on facebook a while back that said "you can't outrun a bad diet" and I think that a lot of us attempt to do just that with our training. So, my 2013 goal is to maintain a good diet in and out of training. Tracking on www.livestrong.com has really helped me with this and I will start back up on Monday. You'd be surprised at the amount of calories in a tiny bowl of cereal (the healthy kind, mixed with plain rolled oats) versus in a giant bowl of arugula, veggies, and eggs.Edited to add paragraphs.

I absolutely love that quote "you can't outrun a bad diet". Thanks for posting it, it is going on my frig door! I started training for tris about a year and a half ago now. At that time I was already dieting. I thought it could be a better exercise outlet than just going to the gym to lose weight, which I was failing at. It has kept the workouts on track because i enjoy it better and can see improvements more readily and the goals out there have made all the difference. I still have a lot to lose, so I am not going to put a number here. Having races out there to keep going helps me a lot, so I did gobble jog last week for my 1st 10k and have signed up for an Olympic tri in may -- the training plan starts on dec 16 :-). So, my goal is to keep the events upcoming and to keep the number moving down so I'll continue to feel better.

I don't even own a scale.  I try to make healthier choices more often than not, but will never give up alcohol, nachos or the occassional chicken wing. If I eat poorly, I usually just step up my workout the next day or so. So I guess I try to negate the Brun Theory.

Good luck to all of you that have weight loss goals for 2013.

I am planning to run my first full marathon next year.  I'm pretty stoked about it.

I am at 295 now.  After three years of crazy hours and stress, work and family life are lining up to allow me to get back into training and eating healthy (less stress) and my BP is finally under control.

I intend to get down to 265 by the end of 2013.

Definitely a destination race - I imgine NYC isn't even a lottery possibility in 2013, so I'm going to try for Chicago and Marine Corps and run whichever I can get into.

I hit my goal of getting down to 185 for IMLP, then off season and eating crap led to shooting back up to 215.  Got back to eating smart about 2 weeks ago and am now easing back into running and am already back down to 208.  I enjoyed 185 and plan to get back to that asap.  More so than last year, I'll also pay attention to dropping my fat %.  I use a Tanita scale, I know it is not the most accurate but I'd like to just watch the fat % trend down.

Going to do regular check ins on this thread for accountability.  Weighed in at 171 this morning - down about 3 pounds from where I was when I posted a couple of weeks ago.  Still have a ways to go, but at least the scale has started moving in the right direction.

I am blessed with not having to manage my weight...it tends to take care of itself.  I know that is not common and I do not take it for granted (sort of).   My goal for 2013 is to improve what goes into the body.  I have many bad habits as a result of being able to eat anything and not pay a price.   However, there is a silent price being paid!   Processed sugar is my biggest target for reduction.   It is so bad for the body in so many ways especially in the volumes that are consumed.  I will start there and see if I can establish better habits and move on to other goals.

Low 170's is my goal race weight for the year.  I'm normally about 180 over the summer and tend to creep in the 185 range over the winter.  I'm too lazy to cook and make tasty good for me stuff so I tend to snack all the time

x2 on the processed sugar. The more I eat of it the more I want to eat - addiction, right? Combine that with the lack of being able to get away with eating anything I want, and I need to make a change. So I started logging my eating again, which works for me in that if I have to admit to myself what I'm really putting in my mouth, I'll avoid at least some of the junk I don't need. I'd like to take at least 10 pounds off and then see where I stand.

Two babies in 18 months and going back to school has put a damper on my training/racing schedule lately. My goal for '13 is to get under 210 and stay there like I was doing in '08/'09. Racing will be gravy.

Just picked up an elliptical for the missus, and getting the trainer setup reorganized should make things a bit easier. We'll see.

I am winning my war on sugar.   I have been drinking unsweet tea instead of my beloved Dr. Pepper when out getting a quick bite.   I turned down a piece of cake at my buddies 50th yesterday!   Every evening the Trader Joe X-mas Jo-Jos are calling my name, but I am not giving in.   I figure if I keep it up for a few more weeks, it will be a habit.

Glad to hear! 

I've done the same. I have one Dr. Pepper a week now, drink lots of hot tea instead, and don't eat many of the other junk that I have eaten in the past. My race weight is 160lbs and I'm sitting right at that weight.

I think I'm going to try to trim up a bit more for the coming season. I do plan to add muscle though. Not alot, but just enough to not look like a POW.

Keep up the good work, ppl. This is a tough time to keep the weight off and to not slip into bad habits.

My first race last year, I was 201.  Ended the year in Pensacola at 190.  Currently still 190 after the holiday feasts so that's good.  My goal this year will be to race Pensacola at 170.  Lots of support at home so that should help.
