0 to 60 in 102 Days

June 28, 2012

On March 18, I weighed 362 pounds.  Today, I weigh 302.  I’m not exactly DJ Qualls yet, but I’m headed in the right direction, having lost 60 pounds so far.  (I did the math, so you don’t have to.  Never let it be said that this isn’t a full-service blog.)

Yeah, I know 302 still sounds ridiculously overweight, but keep in mind I’m 6’5″ and “big boned” as they say.  When I eventually reach my initial target weight of 275, I’ll actually look reasonably fit.  If I ever make it to my ultimate target weight of 250, I’ll appear damn near emaciated.  It’s something of an optical illusion, but it’s just how a guy with my frame looks.

But as excited as I am about losing 60 pounds, I’ll be even more thrilled once that first number drops from a 3 to a 2.  Only three more pounds to go (actually, 2.1, to be exact)!  Hopefully, the next three months of non-stop triple-digit temperatures will keep my appetite suppressed long enough to reach my remaining goals.  Bring on the heat, Mother Nature!
