’30-In-30′ Low-Carb Weight Loss Challenge Hits The Halfway Mark

Filed under: Events — @ November 15, 2006

This is Week 15 in the “30-In-30″ Low-Carb Weight Loss Challenge which means we have officially hit the halfway mark!

Despite some fluctuations in recent weeks with my weight, I am proud to say I have lost a total of 25 pounds so far:

My current weight of 215 pounds is my lowest body weight since I began my “30-In-30″ challenge back on August 1 to lose 30 pounds in 30 weeks. Actually, I’ve never been this skinny as an adult!

At the halfway mark when I was hoping to lose 15 pounds, I have lost a total of 25 pounds. WOO HOO! Of course, I revised my goal to 199 pounds a few weeks back and I am only 16 pounds away from that goal now. To reach it, I will need to lose about 1.1 pounds per week–VERY DOABLE!

What’s most amazing is that when I hit my goal of 199, it will be the first time I have been at that weight since the 5th grade! Yes, I was a very big boy as a child, but those days of the nerdy fat slob are long gone. B-bye to the old me and a hearty hello to the new one!

Won’t you join me and the rest of that gang in the “30-In-30″ Low-Carb Weight Loss Challenge, too? There are a bunch of us all sticking together to support each other through this journey and we’d love to have you be a part of the fun.
