Weight: 298 – Pounds left to lose: 138

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

I did it! I am now below 300 pounds for the first time in over a decade.

Once again I have to thank you for documenting your journey because your success is what allowed me to never give up hope of one day doing this incredibly hard thing.
