40 Pounds

As of today I have lost a little over 40 pounds. That is such an awesome feeling. I will never see those numbers again. I can't believe that my goal of being under 200 pounds is actually coming into view. It has been 8 weeks since my surgery and I am feeling great. Averaging 5 pounds a week which is awesome and more than I could ever of hoped for. I bought a pair of size 16 pants yesterday and pulled them on without a problem. That motivated me to get rid of a bunch of pants in my closet that I haven't worn forever and now will never fit again. WooHoo!!!

Sunday I leave for the police academy in Boise for 3 weeks of probation officer training. I will be flying home for the weekends but I am really going to concentrate on myself while I am there and take full advantage of the gym. Hope to be under 200 by the time it is over.

I am also now officially obese instead of morbidly obese with a BMI of 39.57. Overweight here I come.

Starting Weight 264
Current Weight 223.3
Goal 140

01/07/2011 Scale is finally moving again!

While after what seemed like the longest stall every the scale is moving again. Over the last few weeks I have either not lost anything or actually gained a few ounces at a time. I have kept trying to eat right and work out and just wait it out. My clothes really feel different now and I don't think I will be able to keep wearing my favorite jeans much longer. Even my workout clothes are getting too big.

I leave on 01/16 for three weeks in Boise for training and am really going to try and focus on eating and exercising while I am there. It is at the police academy so there is a full gym and pool. I will be coming home on the weekends and only doing weigh ins then so hopefully I get some good results.

Today's weight 226
BMI 40.04 (so close to my first goal of being under 40 bmi).

Here are some pictures I took at the gym on 12/31. They are not the best quality but it is hard to find someone else to take pics of me all the time :)
