Hello fellow weight loss enthusiasts,

Today is my first real goal day weigh in. My Goal was to hit 275 lbs by today from my starting weight of 305.7 lbs on August 1st. Guess what … I Crushed it 🙂 !!!!! Here are the before and after pics. I need to try and start to take some better one. It may not be very obvious, but I lost over 3 inches in both my chest and my waist as well. Let’s hope I can keep up the good work. Next goal is Nov. 1st and 250 lbs!!

So Yeah I got a long way to go. However, I have been feeling GREAT since I started hitting the gym on September 1st for my 2 a days. Maybe a little sore sometimes, but I think the weight training is definitely helping as I approach 50 years old. Keto has been a Godsend. I appreciate all the other people out there that are posting their stories and helping us all stay motivated. I hope that I will be able to do the same for some people as well.

Here are the Stats:
SW: 305.7 lbs | CW: 272.3 lbs | GW: 185 lbs | Total weight loss to date: 33.5 lbs

Measurements:
Starting: Chest: 54 inches | Waist: 56.5 inches
Current: Chest: 50.5 inches | Waist: 53.5 inches

Welcome to my blog my fellow weight loss seekers and fitness enthusiasts!! This is the site that I will be posting about my journey to a healthier lifestyle through fitness, nutrition, and weight loss. My current weight as of July 30th is 305.8 lbs with a BMI of 43.9 and a body fat percentage of 48.3 (depressing!! – nearly half of my body is just “FAT”). I haave some knee problems, I am on high blood pressure medication, and I am borderline diabetic. It is time to make some big changes!!

I will be officially starting this journey on August 1st and see if I can get to my goal weight of 185 lbs by my 50th birthday on May 20th, 2019. That gives me about 9-1/2 months to make this happen. This is a highly aggressive goal, but I will have smaller goals along the way. The “diet” I will be following is Keto. It is not a diet per say, but a lifestyle change. It includes eating a high percentage of “good” fats, some moderate protein, and of course LOW carbs. The macros that I will be trying to follow are somewhere around 75% Fat, 20% Protein, and only 5% of net carbs. I will eventually start throwing in some fitness after the first few weeks of “dieting”.

How about you guys follow along. Maybe you can join with me on this challenge. Maybe I will start a pack, troop, horde, group or something for us to join in and help motivate each other. Let’s see how it goes.
