Week 37 – Who Are You Calling Extra Extra Large?

Week of 01-13 through 01-19 in the year of our Lord 2012
This is the first weigh-in of the rest of my life. Here are the results for week 37:

Today: 250.4 lbs.
Last Week: 252 lbs.
Week Difference: -1.6 lbs.
Total Loss: 84.2 lbs.
Body Fat: 19.6 % 
Lean Mass: 42.6%  
Blood Pressure: N/A
BMI: 31.3 (-0.2 )

Who are you calling extra extra large? Me? No my friend, I am only extra large at this point.

That is one of those little victories that makes this whole journey to getting healthy so sweet.  I pretty much can wear XL shirts now. I say “pretty much” because some shirts like AA run smaller anyway. Fatboy tax still applies.

I tried to take a picture (below) of what the difference between an XXXL, which is what I was wearing when I decided that enough was enough, and an XL, the shirt I wore to the gym this morning. It is not really all that dramatic of a picture, so I added the dramatic chipmunk to make it MORE dramatic.  I think, as you can see, that it had the desired effect.

So I am almost 85 pounds down in 37 weeks. 2 and a quarter pounds per week average.  That seems healthy and sustainable.  I know my attitude has been up and down about how quickly I wanted to or even COULD lose 100 pounds, but I am happy with the average. I can definitely tell that it is getting harder though.

 I think I will go read through some of my previous weight loss motivation posts and see if there is any of my own advice I can take.

Don’t forget that I will be going on live tv on January 25th, at 9:30 to talk with the folks at Lowcountry Live about my weight loss journey and how I have supported Louie’s Kids as a part of my journey.  That is when I will be presenting a check to the organization. Read more about how I am fighting childhood obesity and see if you are interested in participating.

Until next week’s weigh-in,

Remember that all is permissible but not all is profitable…

Beast face out.
