Archive for June, 2012


This is scale reading for my weigh-in on May 18, 2012:

That meant my BMI score was 24.7. For the first time, it was below the magic number of 25. That meant I was (finally) in the “normal” range. No longer morbidly obese (ugh!), or obese, or even “overweight”. It took a year, and 122 pounds lost, but I was finally considered at a healthy weight.

Of course there has to be the obligatory Before and After pics:

Me in September 2010. Not at my heaviest, but I generally avoided cameras back then.

Me on June 22, 2012. 157.6 lbs., BMI - 23.9, 16.4% body fat
