Even though I got a cold and spent a week in bed, even though I didn't get to go to the gym much, I lost five pounds in four weeks. If that wasn't good enough I also ended up hitting some weight loss milestones which is what makes it even more of an achievement.
|I did that too.|
As well as hitting that goal I also reached another good one. A damn great one if I do say so myself. This is going to be kind of hard to admit but at my biggest I weighed about 350 pounds. I weighed over 150kgs. I remember the shame I felt when I admitted to my dad we couldn't buy a stepladder because it couldn't support my weight. I'm pleased to report that since then I have now lost over 20% of my original body weight.
That feels pretty good if I do say so myself.
They say that to feel good you should lose 5% of your weight. To those people I say, screw you, lose 20%.
Though seriously losing any weight is an achievement. If you only manage to lose 1% then good for you. Lose as much as you need to. Only really, really, stupidly obese people like me need to lose half their body weight.
