Almost, but still I am pretty darn happy

OK OK, I might be just a shade disappointed, but I am going to weigh in on Saturday to see if I "officially" my personal goal.  I lost a fantastic 4.8 lbs this week. leaving me 1.8 lbs to get below 300.  For those of you just joining us, the goal was to be below 300 by the time of the first Mizzou football game that was originally noted in this post here.

Now I know that goal was / is aggressive and I know all the things about not reaching your goal, but I am seriously not upset about this one.  I might make it by Saturday, I might make it by September 30th, who knows.

I do know this, I will weigh on Saturday, take the results and have a great day regardless.  After that the goal is to run that 5k in October.  My energy will be very focused on that and I am sure weight loss will come along with that.]

Thanks for all the well wishes yesterday.  I really do appreciate it.

Congrats on the great loss! Stay on plan the rest of the week and I'm sure you'll get to your 299.8 goal by Saturday.

Good luck on your football season, too. I'm in Lincoln, Nebraska and we're just hoping this year isn't as bad as past years. ; )

Read some of your early posts after my wife (to lose 80 pounds) forwarded your site on to me. Congrats on your progress, I know the feeling. In the time that my wife has lost 63 pounds, I went from 285 to 235, and I feel a lot better. And I didn't give up my beer. I just added Anytime Fitness at 5AM and made portion and diet changes. You have seen the height/weight charts that say you should be at about 200#. More importantly you need to talk to your doctor when you get close to that. Chances are, your body will tell you where your ideal weight should be, like it did with me. Keep up the good work.

Hi Dude,
It's a tremendous thing you've done. Don't be surprised if it's a little anticlimatic. The satisfaction from your own good habits will keep you motivated more than a number. But it still feels good too! Please post a before and after picture. We'll all celebrate with you and use your success as a motivation for ourselves too.
