Hit Initial Goal

Monday, November 12, 2012

This is me from last Christmas probably somewhere around my highest recorded weight of 285

In August I took my first Spark oriented pictures at 262

My initial goal when I started Sparking at 275 in July was 225 by 3/1/2013. Today I weighed in at 224. I have lost 21% of my body and my BMI is now down below 30. Here are my after pictures.

I have set a new goal of 195 for 3/1/2013. Technically I need to be at 189 to be at a healthy weight. When I reach that goal I will let my body decide if 189 makes sense. My kettlebell instructor said he thinks that the 190s will be a good weight for me so that was the decider.

    Great achievement !! BMI I think can be deceiving, some people are larger boned than others, and need to carry more weight, If that makes any sense.

    Hey, you did great. Go by how you feel and how YOU think you look. The BMI is a nice guideline, but it is only an approximation. emoticon
