In 2001 I weighed 272 lbs. When I made the decision to loose weight, I decided to compete with me.

I put on some shorts, no shirt and had a picture taken from the side. I took a new picture every two weeks. I used my computer to put the pictures beside each other. I looked at them often.

I weighed every morning. I wasn’t looking for weight loss each day. I kept a running total for 7 days, added them up and divided by 7. This gave me a trend weight. 

I counted calories, everyone of them. I was shooting to stay under 1800 per day.

Competing with me worked. I lost 100 lbs in 11 months.  

Slow improvement is better than no improvement. 

Loosing weight changed my life for the better. 

Pictures are powerful
