Weight

I haven’t blogged about this in a while, but figured it’s worth an update.

The day before I started my first day at Walmart (February 15th), I weighed 223.6 lbs and had a 37.2″ waistline.

This morning (April 20th), I weighed 212.0 lbs and have a 35.8″ waistline.

So, in a nutshell, I’ve lost 11.6 lbs and lost 1.4″ on my waistline.

Not only that, comparing with my measurements from before I was original going to start my 60 day routine, I’ve gained half an inch of muscle on each bicep, gained an inch of muscle on my chest size, and lost an inch of fat on each of my thighs.

With nothing more than just having a physical job, eating right, and cutting down sodas to once a week, I’ve lost quite a bit of weight. And even better, I’m still losing weight. I mean sure, I’ve probably lost a lot more than 11 lbs in fat (remember, muscle weighs more than fat), but just the fact that I’m still losing weight is even better.

What I can’t wait to see is the before and after from the academy. We’ll do a lot of running and a lot of lifting weights, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens there.

I’m hoping to get down to what I weighed during marching band in college, when I was at my peak physical health, 175 and a 34″ waist. I know that’ll probably never happen with the lifting of weights and those effects (toning and building muscle, again, muscle weighs more than fat), but hopefully I can get back to feeling as good as I did physically.
