I've lost: 9 pounds, 5% body fat, 2 percentage points off my BMI, 13.5 inches and one dress size. Woohoo!
Here are the team results. I've changed their names. We really don't have people at work named Curly, Moe and Larry - though sometimes I feel like I'm working with the Three Stooges. (sorry about the formatting, it's wonky with this editor):
Name %Wt loss / % Body Fat loss
Moe: 5 / 5.2
Curly: 7 / 1.4
VegSexy: 5 / 1.7
Larry: 0 / 0
Groucho: 3 / 0.9
Barney: + / 3.3
Fred: 3 / 0.4
Mr. Rogers: 5 / 0.9
So, being that I was competing with a bunch of "young guys". I feel I gave them a serious run for their money. I guess I came in a strong 3rd. The results were based on %Wt loss and % Body Fat loss. The guys knew the odds were not in my favor. I knew that. The nurse knew that. I still rocked.
I want to mention some key weigh-ins I did on my own:
November, 2011 - 184lbs.
January 1st, 2012 - 179lbs
January 20th, 2012 - 177lbs
March 16th, 2012 - 168lbs
So, depending where you want to start the clock I've lost 16 to 9 pounds. Not bad. Not bad at all. Proof is in the numbers, this way of eating will let you eat to better health.
This has been a journey for me since 2011. I used to have migraines, GERD, IBS and PMS. I've always struggled with my weight. This WOE has helped me beyond dropping a couple of pounds. I'm not stopping.
We're extending the program another 6 weeks at the suggestion of the nurse at work to make it a real contest. Sign me up! With the weather better, I can get out biking in the evenings. I'll keep up with my yoga and this way of eating. There is no way I'm going back to my old habits!
I really want to thank everyone for your support. This board has some of the best people I've come along on the web. I've learned so much and made changes based on suggestions that were honest and brought about true results.
So, my journey continues!
BTW - My trip to NYC was good yesterday. Good client visit. Stopped at Whole Foods at Union Square. Nice walk up to Penn and train ride along the Hudson was really nice with the sunsetting to the West. My cold is pretty much gone.
