Week 13 Weigh-In

330 lbs. baby! 4.6 lbs. loss this week! 50 lbs. overall loss!
I know...I know...I won't continue to lose weight at this rate. I will hit a plateau or 2 or 10. Actually, I am astonished and humbled by the amount that I seem to continue to lose each week. I fully expect it to slow down. I thought it would have happened already.

In the meantime, I am excited that there is 50 lbs. less stress on my heart. There is 50 lbs. less bulk trying to squeeze into my clothes. There is 50 lbs. less weight wearing me out while I play with my kids. There is 50 lbs. reasons to consider bariatric surgery.

This 50 lbs. is merely a reflection of my new lifestyle of fitness. Unlike diets and programs, my new lifestyle is for life. My goal is to live like this always.

p.s. Gross pictures will have to wait until Wednesday since I am out of town.

Living Fit is my #1 Job!

Half the Man,
Your helping me relive that excitement of the first fifty pounds. You must be stoked!!! The only thing better going 299 will be that moment when you drop 100 lbs and hit 280. Remember these real up times, because they get you through, and I hope you don't go through these, periods where maybe you only lose 1 pound in 2-3 weeks. Great job and thanks for posting on my site.
