Weigh-In: Week 10 (7-14-2011)

Week of 07-08 through 07-14 in the year of our Lord 2011
This is the first weigh-in of the rest of my life. Here are the results for week 10:

Today: 293.8 lbs.
Last Week: 298 lbs.
Week Difference: -4.2 lbs.
Total Loss: 40.8 lbs.

Well I have done it again this week.  I have reached another milestone.  Wow! 40 pounds down in 2 1/2 months by counting calories and exercising.  It can be done folks.  It can be done.

I wish I had more profound words for you but I don’t.  I am excited beyond belief to be 40% of the way to losing 100 pounds. Shawn (Tyler) over at 344pounds.com said he would give me a plug if I lost 40 pounds in 3 months.  I am not sure if he actually thought I could do it or not.  2 and a half months later let’s see if he is a man of his word!  Shawn, your move grasshopper. 🙂

Hey guys, I have gotten a lot of messages since I started this blog from folks who, just like me, want to lose weight and keep it off.  They have told me that I am an inspiration to them and they have enjoyed my writing.  I want each and everyone of you to know that your messages are an unexpected perk of losing weight.  I did not ever think I would come across as an inspirational person or a motivational tool, but it encourages me on a daily basis to get those types of messages.  It is an amazing symbiotic relationship when your messages telling me that I am inspiring you, in turn dive me and inspire me to keep at this.  Thank you.  You guys are my inspiration.  I hope to be able to help inspire you more and more every day.  Let’s do this together!

My hair might be out of control, but my weight is being beaten into submission.

40 Down. 60+ to go.

Make sure to check out the updated Commitment to Louie’s Kids page to see how much is going to be donated!

Until next week’s weigh-in,

Put down the kettle-corn, pick up the kettle-bell.
