My Weight Progress

photo of a cat lying on a pillow implying that he moved the dog to get the best seat.This is just to give you a quick update as to my progress on my diet. It has been almost a year since I started, and I must say that the journey has not been a smooth one. From the dramatic reduction in my caloric intake to the introduction of an exercise routine, I have lived a very different life from what I had been a year ago.

Besides dreaming of Double Western Bacon Cheeseburgers and big, juicy steaks and fighting the dreaded plateaus, I have made significant inroads towards my goal of 190 pounds. I know, you’re busy so I’ll shut-up and give you the results.

  • Beginning weight on 6 August 2007: 278 pounds

  • Beginning hip measurement:48 inches

  • Beginning waist measurement: 56 inches

    • Current weight on 27 July 2008: 232 pounds

    • Current hip measurement: 39 inches

    • Current Waist measurement: 44 inches

    • Total weight Loss: 46 pounds

The weight of 232 could have been lower, but since a large portion of my exercise routine is devoted to strength training, I have gained, as a conservative estimate, at least 10 pounds of muscle. So, my total Fat Loss would be around 56 pounds.

I am hoping to be able to claim 50 pounds of total weight loss by my first anniversary. I’ll be sure and let you know if I make it or not.
