My Weight Loss

Bod Pod Results!

Ok – those of you that have followed my trek from the beginning know what the bod pod is – the air displacement body composition test. I started last summer in the middle of my cycling season. I started riding my bike last year to and from work two to three days a week. In all I put about 1500 miles on the bike in about two and a half months.

Anyway, at the end of the summer I weighted in at 291.5 lbs with 169 lbs of lean weight and 122.4 pounds of fat. After my 10 year high school reunion, the riding season was over, it started to get too cold for me to ride to work and the holiday seasons activities began to pick up. At one point I weighted 311.9 lbs! Just before I left for the D-Tour 2007, I weighted 302.8 lbs with 166.5 lbs of lean weight and 136.3 lbs of fat – that’s 45.03% fat!!!

Today I found that 735 miles in two weeks seem to be worth about as much as 1500 miles over three months! Here are the results:

Lean Weight: 166.4 lbs
Fat Weight: 124.6 lbs
Total Weight: 291 lbs

That’s right – I lost almost 12 pounds of pure FAT!!!  WoooHoooo!!!!
