I was a 52 now I am a 42!!!

Wednesday, February 24, 2010



My trainer took a picture at the gym of me holding up my old pants. It is a real reminder of where I was and how far I have come….and where I NEVER want to be again. I was 385 and am now 302. My goal is to get down to 250 for starts, ultimately down to 210 ( My military weight) I know I can do this, and when I do, I will help as many people as I can to get there as well!

You can do it!

    I had to read this.

    I started May 08, at 244 pounds, 54 years old and little or no exercise.

    By Apr 09 I was 160 pounds 55 years old and in the best shape since High School.

    Currently I am 160 pounds 56 year old do an average of 10 km per day.

    My pant size went from 44 to 32, blood pressure when from high normal / low high to classic normal. My resting heart rate went from 85 to 65.

    I have often noted that the only stat that I don't seem to be able to improve is my age.

    When I saw, "I was a 52 now I am a 42!!!" I thought, "Man, someone has figured out how to fix the aging issue!!!"

    Imagine my disappointment. LOL

    Great Going!!!
