11.5 pounds so far…

Check in the Weekly Update section – I’ve lost 11.5 pounds so far!  I’ve got a long way to go, but its only been 6 weeks, and I’m close to 2 pounds a week. 

At my heaviest, I weighed in at a huge 330 lbs!  I lost 30 pounds in Columbus, OH two summers ago through walking, geocaching, and at the end riding my bike.  It took me 10 years to pack on the 100 pounds I once carried.  I weighed a mere 230 lbs when I left high school, but I also bench pressed 300 lbs, and box squatted over 1000 lbs.  Each winter in Ohio, I would put on 20 lbs, and each summer I would take off about 10 lbs.  Ten years later, I was 100 lbs heavier.

But now… I have lost a total of 40 lbs from my heaviest; 11.5 pounds since I started cycling to work.  At this rate, I’ll be down below my high school weight in about a year… to bad the 10 year reunion is in about a month – :)

  1. Very good, Dale.

    Certainly the weight loss is a gratifying step toward better health. And even without the weight loss the bicycling would do a lot of good.

    You’ve got a double whammy going! Keep on rolling.
