Weighed in under 200 pounds.

music selection:  “Night Moves” — Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band

weigh-in:  199.8

On 1MAR2015, I hit 250 pounds.  I decided to do something about my weight.  It has not been easy.  It has taken almost 3 and quarter years to lose 50 pounds.  Importantly, I still have 35 pounds to go to my target weight.

I find that the process of losing weight is a lot like saving for early retirement:

  • It takes discipline
  • It takes time
  • Small wins add up over time
  • It is a marathon and not a sprint

I need a little extra oomph to lose that next 35 pounds as progress has gotten really slow.  Starting this week, I will be doing the Strong Lifts 5×5 program.  It was recommended by some early retiree aficionados at local meetups as an effective way to gain lean muscle mass and lose fat.  I am prepared to give it a try.

To that end, I’ll be posting a series each Wednesday (Bro, do you even lift?) that tracks my progress.

Devour your prey raptors!
