Contest officially ended yesterday. Bodyweight yesterday AM was 263lbs, down from 285 on July 16th.

23lbs in 4 months. I’ll take it. Proof that a Hardloser can get it done.

Photos and other measurements will be posted within a few days.

There were spots during that time that I could have done better, been more compliant with my diet, etc, but overall I fell pretty successful. I am gonna get new clothes for Christmas.

I have not missed a single scheduled workout in over 4 months. My SSST (24kg) numbers went from a PR of 230 to 260, and my 32kg number has gone from 137 to 166.

My next short term goal is my birthday, which is Nov.23rd, the day after Thanksgiving. I’ll weigh in for that on Wed. the 21st, since we’ll be travelling. Plan is to drop below 260lbs for the first time in over ten years.

I have recieved a LOT of support from people via email and if I am very thankful that so many people have been so kind and have found something useful from my journey so far. You have helped keep me on track.

Time to go train.
