96 percent

Last September I set out on a goal to lose weight. My birthday was coming up in a few months and I was feeling old. So I thought it would be neat to try to lose 100 pounds by the following birthday. That gave me just over 14 months.

I didn't do any exercise. I didn't work out. What I did do was eat less. I cut out all sweets, all desserts, and quit drinking during the week. I also ate a lot of popcorn.

A few days ago, that birthday came and went. My 14 months is up, and I've lost 96 pounds.

I think I'm pretty close to my ideal weight now and I actually weigh less than I did in college. I'll keep trying to lose that last 4 pounds, but as of right now, I'm pretty satisfied hitting 96% of my goal. That earns an 'A' in my book.

Who knows, maybe next year I'll try working out and build some muscle tone. (But don't hold your breath.)

How appropriate that your website lost 96% of it's content all the while... Just kidding. Congrats.

Dude, I have been sooo busy lately. 2008 was a very transformational year for me.

Holy Moses! Congrats. What an accomplishment. Here's hoping you can work out a lifestyle that allows you to comfortably keep it off.
