As God is my witness, my weight in pounds shall never start with the number 3 again! Let this proclamation ring out through the land!
I realize this milestone is really only a fluke of our base 10 number system. If we had 8 fingers I probably would have gotten all excited when I hit 320 pounds which is 500 in octet. But a milestone is a milestone, mathematical fortuity or not. So let’s reflect on how far I’ve come, shall we?
Starting BMI (Body Mass Index): 54.9
Current BMI: 44
BMI Loss: 10.9
(Great improvement, but I’m probably still 14 points away from getting health insurance.)
Pounds Lost: 74
Percentage of Starting Weight Lost: 20%
Percentage of Way To Goal: 35%
Pounds until my BMI qualifies me as ‘overweight’ instead of ‘obese’: 96
