7 Percent Bodyfat by July 7 2007 Goal or 7777

My goal has always been to get to 6 % bodyfat by the summer of each year and so far the best I’ve gotten is 8% in February of 2005.  So here it is christmas again and I’m driving towards a new goal.  I saw a guy over on 35 to 35 because of his link to my blog so I dropped in for a read.  I believe his goal is 35 pounds in 35 weeks and that is the reason behind his domain name.

So, I realized that 7% by July 7th of 2007 would become 7777 (7%, 7th month, 7th day, 7th year) and would also be a cool goal.

So here it begins. 

I am not that lean now, and have a ways to go, but I know how to do it and I’ve done it before, so it’s just a matter of discipline, hard work and sacrifices in time and eating habits.  That should be easy.  It’s the decision that begins it all though and I have to get my head around that.

It begins with training harder to gain muscle mass which then accompanied with Cardio makes the muscle more efficient at burning fat.  I’ve spoken with my personal trainer and I’ve got a new program.  I have not been in the gym for almost 4 months due to work and travel and it’s time to get back at it.

Eric Chopin Drops 214 Pounds and Becomes the Biggest Loser


  1. I’ve been looking for my next challenge. Why not jump on your bandwagon? In fact, I’ve got $1 that says on 7.7.7 I’m even lower BF than you.

    Care to make it interesting?

    Hey Rob

    I don’t think that I could drop that much body fat between now and then but I would like to throw my sombrero into the ring. I’d like to get down to around 250 pounds by 7.7.07! I think that it’s an achievable goal and with Rob’s help I will be able to get to it.

    Looking forward to working my ass off!!!!


  3. Originally, I thought betting $1 was “making it interesting.” However, I am thinking this is just the type of thing others need. With New Year’s upon us, the timing is right.

    Now, obviously, we couldn’t have a massive internet gamble with you betting everyone a dollar. Or could we?

    What if we were to set something up that people could bet $1, all of which would go to a worthy cause. Something weight related, like children’s diabetes. Perhaps we could start a challenge like Body for Life did a decade ago.

    What could we do? Let’s MAKE it interesting.
