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.
