It’s been just over 30 weeks (213 days) since I’ve last blogged. And nearly a year (Memorial Day last year 339 days ago) that I weighed the most I’ve ever weighed at 331 pounds. October was when I dropped down to 288 pounds.
I hovered in that range and down to 280 for a bit, but mostly around 288 to 293 or so for the last 30 weeks.
Two months ago I weighed 295 pounds. Today I weigh 273. I’ve not done much different with my life. I just have more drive. I workout five days a week and no more than 2 hours each (1 hour on a bike at a slow to moderate pace while on conference calls and no more than 1 hour of strength – TRX on specific routines I’ve done and documented in many past posts). My eating is pretty much salad, water, and I don’t watch calories. I just kind of eat when I feel like it and I don’t eat a lot. Which really means I eat once a day and that’s it. I’m not hungry the rest of the time.
Here are my measurements over the last year. I could not pull my leg onto my other leg at all. Like a figure-4. I can now. Total weight loss so far from Memorial Day 2018 to today is 58 pounds and I drop size faster than weight these days, which is to be expected.
apr 17 2018 – apr 29 2019 waist – 49 – 41.25 = 7.75″ butt/hips – 54.5 – 45.5 = 9″ chest – 43 – 39 = 4″ thighs – 31 – 27.25 = 3.75″ apr 17 – apr 29 2018 I weighed between 315 and 320 may 1, 2019 I weigh 273
imagine having pants that were tight and you couldn’t put a belt on and losing 9″ off your butt and hips and almost 8″ off your waist and now have to wear a belt because those pants and shorts you bought would just fall off? It’s a very exciting and confident feeling.
it’s also very nice, even at 273, which I weighed in spring 2010, to be the smallest size I’ve been even before that time. That means that I’m able to wear clothes now, that I had for a smaller me when I weighed like 253-260. That brings up ones confidence level quite a bit.
