Back in the winter of 2007 I worked as a copywriter for an online merchant in Chicago, IL. One day, five co-workers and I decided to have a weight loss pool. We each put in $100 and tried to see who could lose the most weight over the course of a couple of months—I believe the contest went from the beginning of March until the fifth of May.
If I recall correctly, I placed third in the contest. My weight loss method back then was Atkins (I don’t recommend it) and jogging around the track at Bally’s during my lunch break.
I ended up going from 199 lbs to 172, a loss of 27 lbs. The reason I bring this up is because as of this writing I am down from 212 lbs to 171 lbs—a total loss of 41 lbs since November 2nd. I have now crossed the threshold of what my weight was back in 2007 before I gained those 27 lbs back and then some.
There will be no current weight loss pictures for this weight update. I might not even show any more until I reach my goal of 149 lbs. For now, please enjoy the before and after picture below of my weight loss from the above mentioned 2007 weight loss competition.
Oh, and I apologize for the striped shirt and cargo pants. A very special woman with a great fashion sense, except for her prolific use of scarves, (sorry, you-know-who) advised me to stop wearing them both last year. Sigh. If only I knew her in 2007. I have since donated all my striped shirts and cargo pants to goodwill.
Striped shirts really are ugly. Ugh.
Talk to you soon!
