Weight Loss Goal (Revised)
My original weight loss goal was to lose 100 pounds and finish my journey weighing 244 pounds. About a month ago, after realizing I’d still have an incredibly large stomach (and two chins) remaining once I hit 244, I revised my goal weight to 225 pounds.
I’m changing my goal weight once again: 200 pounds.
Typing “200 pounds” seems so surreal; I haven’t weighed that much since middle school. I also fully expect to reach my goal weight of 200 pounds later on this year. While it might end up being a close race in December, I’m fairly sure I can lose 55 pounds within the next 6 months.
That’ll be just shy of 150 pounds lost in 2009.
With all of that being said, it’s important to remember that the scale is just a random number (much like BMI). Neither number is really important nor relevant at the end of the day – what matters is that you are healthy and happy with the way you look and feel. I personally think that 200 pounds is going to be near where I’m going to be happy with myself and my body.
Standing at 73 inches tall and weighing 200 pounds I should be lean and devoid of any gut, but still feature some pretty big guns.
I know that’s what the ladies wife likes.
