A few quick thoughts

Hard to wrap my head around the weight loss. Down 98 pounds from where I started. Two more and I can say I lost 100 pounds. I am at odds with the idea of being proud of this. I realize that it is a significant accomplishment on my Journey to good health and fitness. I also have to step back and acknowledge that I had 100 Plus pounds to lose. That is a tough thing to accept overall. It is also a cautionary tale for me. If I gained it once, the risk exists that if I stray from the plan, lose sight of the goals I risk gaining the weight back. I have more to lose. I have my sights set on 200 pounds as my ultimate destination on the weight. Then maintain it. Stay with the plan, stay on the Journey, never lose sight of the fact that this is a lifelong commitment.

A few numbers to absorb:

Starting weight: 305.6 pounds

Current weight: 207.6 pounds

Starting Body Mass Index: 39.9

Current Body Mass Index: 27.0

Current Neck Size: 15.5

Starting Shoe Size: 11.5 EEE

Current Shoe Size: 11 D

Days on The Journey: 226

Calorie Deficit to lose 98 pounds: 343,000

SO Far to go

I say this a great deal: no matter how far I have come, I still have a lifetime to go. I want to lose another 8-10 pounds. I want to keep my weight there. I want to continue to improve on my fitness. I want to ride from High Point to Cape May. I want to get back to backpacking. I want to stay on the Journey.

I will keep looking at this picture to make sure I remember how far I have come and why I am on the Journey.

My reminder
