The THIRD 10% Down

Tuesday, July 29, 2008

I've been hovering around 171 lbs for about a week now and I feel that I've safely lost my third 10%!

So to recap
start - 235
1st 10 - 211.5
2nd 10 - 190
3rd 10 - 171

Whoa almost a third of me has gone bye-bye. It's hard to believe. It's taken me longer than I hoped but it was worth it. I'm studying abroad in Germany in October for 10 months and I want to be as fit as possible for Europe!

    I was actually taking 10% off each increment, not from the total weight.
    So 235 - 23.5 = 211.5
    211.5 - 21.15 = 190
    190 - 19 = 171

    Good for you! Congrats on reaching your goals and sticking with it!

    (By the way, I am such a math geek, that I actually HAD to figure out that there is, rounded to the nearest tenth, 27.2% less of you than when you started. I see math problems, and I just feel a compulsion. It's an sickness, I tell you. Of course, this does not take at all away from your third 10% accomplishment because that has to do with the percentage of the new weight you've achieved and the other is from your starting weight.)

    That's so exciting about you studying abroad, too. I haven't ever been out of the U.S.. What a cool adventure that will be and how fun to have all these new experiences with the new lifestyle!
