Keith Richards (Rolling Stones) singing 'Slipping Away' during '14 on Fire' Tour 2014. Keith Richards has been 'slipping away' away for a few decades - still a great performer and I can be counted as one of his millions of fans.
Saturday February 28 means that I have completed 66 days on my new program, which I have named the 'Rabbi Hillel Diet.' Since I began this journey on December 24, 2014 my weight has been steadily slipping away. Today begins Day 67. Saturday is the day to weigh myself so I can gauge my progress. It is my favorite day of the week.
I weigh 252.1 lbs.
I lost 2.4 lbs this week.
I lost 56.9 lbs in 66 days. Today begins Day 67.
I have lost nearly 7 inches on my waist.
(I can just about squeeze into a size 42" waist slacks, although they are tight - 66 days ago I was wearing size 50" waist slacks - and they were starting to get tight!)
I am still at the beginning of a journey that never ends.
I weigh 252.1 lbs. (66 days ago I weighed 309 lbs)
I have lost 18.4% of my weight since Dec 24.
I have lost nearly 1% of my weight since last Saturday!
I have had an another successful week losing 2.4 lbs.
I have a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 33.72 (still Class I obesity)
I had a 42.0 BMI on December 24, 59 days ago (Class III obesity)
I will 'graduate' from Class I obesity into simply 'overweight' in a few weeks (224 lbs)
I have three words to describe how I feel right now - I feel good.
