I passed the 225 pounds milestone this week.

music selection: “I Can’t Dance” — Genesis

weigh-in: 224.2 (2.2) #loser

It’s been a long uphill slog since I got serious about losing weight in early March 2015 when I was 250 pounds.  Twenty five point eight pounds later, I feel pretty good.  Last week was a turning point where I gave up sugary drinks like sweet tea and Coke and started drinking more water.  I still crave sugary drinks but I’m finding I can mostly tolerate their absence.  I’ll cheat a couple times  a week just to keep myself sane.

I promised myself I’d return to Jiu-Jitsu at the 225 pound mark so I’ll dust off my Gi after this post and plan to make the 7 oclock BJJ Fundamentals class at Team Tooke tonight.  I’ve been doing bodyweight squats for a couple weeks to prepare myself for repeatedly clamboring back up off the mat.  We’ll see how my wind holds up through a two hour class.

Next milestone post is at 200 pounds.

    Congrats on the progess and that huge 10% decrease. That’s amazing and I’m sure it has taken some hard work/dedication. Was it always easy, no. But you found a way to make it work for you and you killed your goal.
