6-24 am UPDATE- NOW DOWN 71 LBS!

After reaching my goal weight....I decided to take a break from logging everything and just do it and see how much I could remember. It went excellent.

Consider that I lost another pound this week.....I am fired up!

I am down to 227.8, which I call 227!!!! That makes it a total of 71 pounds.

I will tell you what though the 50lb kettle bell for 75 reps is kicking my a$$!

I do think it is an awesome minimum effective dose workout!

Now on to my reward. Double Cheat Day in Vegas with my 4 Hour Crew and Friends!

Saturday, June 18, 2011

6/18 - am -update - GOAL ACHIEVED! 70 lbs lost!

So I woke up this morning and my weight was 229.2

-I was down .6 pounds from yesterday
-But my goal was to hit 228 point anything

So I was PO'D to say the what to do?

I went and ran up and down the back stairway probably a good 20 times, got winded an worked up a sweat. This is before eating or drinking, stil haven't had anything yet. I then jumped in to the cold shower. Came out jumped on the scale.....and presto 228.8!

So this mornings official weigh in was 228.8!

Fighting for that last .4 was important, because I am headed the San Diego County Fair and it is going to be a FREE DAY, cheat day extravaganza. Next week I am going to Las this was an opportune time to get my goal weight.

So here I am 70 pounds lost over 187 days since 12/20/2010. It feels like a great accomplishment. Besides the weight loss, this time and experience has taught me to live life better, to be better, and experimentation.

I have always been a person who loves to learn, but before the 4 hour body, it was all about learning at work. Focusing on the learning on the personal part of life is just as important, scratch that more important.

The 4 hour body experiment continues.............

6/11-am update-down 68 pounds!

This mornings weigh in was 230.4 pounds! I should be happy, right? I am disappointed because I thought I had a shot at 228 this week. That being said, i reached back into the blog archives to give myself some perspective.

Here is a list of my Saturday weigh in's recently

-232.2 (2 day cheat)
-235.8 (2 day cheat)

So over 7 weeks I lost 6.2 pounds and mixed in an extra cheat day twice. The disappointment has disappeared!

If I really think about it, and I haven't put this down in awhile but my waist is now 39 inches after being in the 55 area when I first started.

The most important thing, I feel great!

I can't think of a better way to celebrate...than to enjoy FREEDAY!
