6.6 pounds lost in the past 7 days, 54.6 pounds total in 10 weeks!

I’ve gone from a size 48 waist to a relaxed 42, probably 40 if I tried.  I’m also comfortably fitting into 2XL shirts, down from 4XL, and in another couple months will probably be considering 1XL.  I haven’t worn 1XL shirts since middle school.

In the next few days I’m going to post before and after pictures from “in the wild,” family events, around the house, etc.  The videos don’t show the entire story even though you can see drastic differences from the first video and today’s video.

Stay tuned!

  1. I am so proud of you… i’m sure your wife is as well, just like your daughter will be when she gets old enough to know what you did for her.

    Keep up the good work!! you’re in my prayers.

  2. Roll on Dude. That treadmill rocks, you will burn calories faster on that thing. Keep it up, you’ll pass my weight soon. Maybe I should challenge myself to see if you get to my goal before I do? (210)

  3. Over 50 pounds in 10 weeks? Amazing. Some people say things like “keep it up!” to encourage – I’ll say “Never forget how it feels to have achieved this,” because it’s a feeling you can’t get from being complacent.

  4. I have to confess, I’ve never needed to lose weight (yes, I’m one of those tall skinny people whose BMI’s say “underweight”- thank you, good genes) which makes it odd that I read this blog, but I’m amazed by your progress.

    Seeing your intensity and determination certainly helps me with my own workout. You want to lose 100 pounds, and I want to run 26.2 miles. You’re working hard and seeing (frankly awesome) results, so it’s time for me to step it up.

    Great work and good luck!

  5. Congratulations on your weight loss. That is amazing you are losing 5.5lb/wk. I better get off my ass and try harder as I am only losing 0.7 lb/wk.

    Did you try to go with a little weight training? I hear it burns calories pretty eficiently, but it might cut into your weight loss as you will gain muscle mass.

  6. That’s just awesome! I just did my first physical in years at age 45 and need to loose weight as well. Maybe I will give you a run for your money. I am actually already down about 30 pounds from my high of 354 pounds, just 114 pounds to go to get to my goal of 210. Plan to be there within a year.

    Good luck on the rest of the weight loss!

  7. Look at the change in the curvature in your spine from the first week to this week. It’s remarkable.

    You’re getting other health benefits besides losing weight and feeling better – you’re reorganizing your body and eliminating bad habits that you didn’t even realize were taking place! Good for you.
