been a bit of hard work but it should be worth it and I'll have a pool that I can get more than 2 strokes in before I have to turn smile

What's confusing? it's just a big bag with a frame to hold it up then you fill it with water smile

[Linked Image]

Now I have to sieve the earth (black sand) behind the pool as after all the work that has been done there are a few places that need filled in. At least it is helping in getting the weight down and the muscle tone is getting better, I'm now at 86.4kg, at least it's going in the right direction smile
The sides of the pool will straighten as the water fills up and pushes them out but they will never be straight.

It just doesn't seem possible to me that this "big bag with a frame" structure can hold that much water. smile But then you've shown a pic of what the finished pool looks like so I guess it can. Wow.

That video... rofl

1. What fantastic exercise you're getting just putting the darn thing up.
2. What further fantastic exercise you will be getting once it is up (above ground that allows you to swim laps).
3. Standing in the pool gives a reference of just how deep it is (impressive for an above ground, I think).

This whole thing is very intriguing. Nice job. cheers

Looking at the sides of it just now, they are so bowed in that it looks impossible that it will straighten up but checking out other videos on youtube about it they all say the same thing, the sides only start to straighten when it gets within about 4" of the top. The last little pool we had was 5.5m in diameter and held around 25k liters of water, that's 25 tonnes of water sitting in a plastic bag biggrin we had that pool for almost 12 years.

We had lots of fun and exercise in the pool while we had it, but it got eaten by mice and the sun had started to eat into the tube at the top and so it constantly leaked air in the last year.

My wife having found the high speed shutter on the camera was having fun with it while I was horsing around with our youngest son smile

Lol. I think the length could handle a decent-sized backyard water slide though...

I got a new job in November that has me constantly moving (vs old desk job).

I was 260lb when I started the job. I'm now 205 and I have to eat half again as much and drink a protein (muscle milk) shake in the morning.

I think I've found a ballance. I've been around 205 for a month now with no significant changes. I could still loose some more weight (my ideal weight is 185lb I think @ 6'2") but if I did that none of my clothes would fit anymore. As it is I have to wear suspenders to keep my pants on.

Master, over 50 lbs. lost (50 lbs. = one of those large heavy blocks of salt I used to have to put in my water softner system when I lived in Jax, FL). Man, that's gotta feel good on your feet. smile

Good one Master, you are now down to the weight I had gotten up to! it was when I got to 92kg (205lb) that I realised I really needed to do something now down to 87.4kg (192lbs) mainly due to having to do some hard work for a few months.

It's been the one good thing to come out of one of my tenants wrecking one of my houses, I had to gut the place and start again with new joists and re build from the floor up, my body did not know what hit it biggrin

After a day of shovelling a couple of tons of sand and sieving it through my son's old bed frame. I'm knackered, and I have still to tackle the bigger pile behind the pool, well it's all exercise.

The sides of the pool are starting to come out now thank goodness... just over a foot to go, the pump has been running since last Sunday evening so looking at about a week to fill the darn thing, but it is already deeper than our last pool.

Last summer I got the wife one of those fitness watches with a heart rate monitor in it as she was getting concerned with how slow her heart is and how low her blood pressure is, on the advice of the doctor we got a blood pressure meter to go along with the heart rate monitor. I got myself a fitness watch too and am now recording my daily exercise... or lack of this is today's readout:
Marcos is a friend in the US, and Marie H. is my wife on it.

Neat gadget. How accurate is the watch compared with the blood pressure meter? Oh, and what is that flying through the air on your first roof pic (at first I thought it was a fish)? smile

++++++++++

6:30 this morning I was on a farm not 10 min. from my home picking blueberries...
http://www.berrysweetorchards.com/News.html

...and in a little while we'll be heading out to a nearby farmer's market. A nice thing about living in the rurals is the large quantity and selection of available produce. Of course a city slicker could always drive out to the country, but besides distance there's also limited hours of operation, usually just Saturdays before noon.

The idea is to, as much as possible, eat foods which are not packaged with a list of ingredients.

++++++++++

The one constant these days (we do these first thing every single morning, no excuses) is...

More difficult than it looks, except for the first one ("I'm a coptor! I'm a coptor!" in my best Richards Simmons voice).

I even have the pajamas and a couple of Tibetan Rites manuals/books, plus a new pair of yoga shorts. eek2

I need to check in town for a martial arts class, at least that would be kinda cool (we need a Karate Kid smiley).

The watches only have heart rate, no blood pressure on them but the heart rate coincides with the blood pressure meter.

The flying object is a grey lesser winged rat, more commonly known as a Pidgeon, you can just see it's reflection on the roof of the sunlounge at the bottom of the picture.

Pool is full and 175kg of salt added and the chlorine generator started, temperature of the water is 14c Brrrrr! family events on just now so construction of the car port to hold the solar panels has been delayed until next week so I'm not that inclined to take a dip just yet biggrin

That looks to be so enjoyable, especially in the current heat. And it looks like you really did it right, the sides are very straight for what it is. Holy crap that's a lot of water for an above ground pool, and the perspective doesn't even emphasise the length!

14,364 gallons(US) it says in the book, looking at it from ground level it quite dominates that side of the garden. There is a large drain at the side if the house quite close to the pool and as the ground is sandy it drains away very quickly if something should happen

after 40 years of taking 165 pounds for granted, I have been prescribed ensure plus to get back from 152 caused by Parkinson's. my first shipment was stolen from my driveway. Requesting delivery to the front porch . VA didn't want to mess with a claim , just send another 8 pounds of powder. My wife is a great cook and we eat well, so it will be interesting to see what results we get.

Coasty, I'm sorry to hear that, about the Parkinson's and the theft.

My parents drink Ensure (liquid in plastic bottles) and it takes all of my willpower to stay out of the butter pecan. The last thing I need is to be drinking concentrated calories but these taste so good to me.
