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
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.
