Losing Weight


Losing weight


About a month ago I weighed myself.  270 pounds.  (Yes Canada went metric, but we still think in pounds for personal weight).  At 27 years old I saw 30 on the horizon.  I looked at 270 lbs and saw 300 on the horizon.  I am 6′ 6″ (still think in feet too) so 270 lbs is still fairly reasonable.  I can’t reverse the aging process, but I can reverse the weight gain process.  So I started.

Week 1: 270 lbs
Week 2: 268 lbs
Week 3: 266 lbs

Slow and steady I guess.  The goal is to lose about 1 pound a week until I hit 235.  Am I on Atkins? No.  I just removed some of the pop, french fries, and sweet snacks from my diet.  I do a lot more walking or cycling each week.  It’s working.  When I’m up at the lake I’ll be doing lots of hiking so that should help as well. 

Stunning fact: the highest calorie item at McDonalds is a Sausage and Egg McGriddle at 680 calories.  Mmmmmmmm…..McGriddle.

    Good man!

    I’m 5’10″ and 175lbs. I was in the high 160s, but I’ve not ridden seriously since about February :-(
