Taking Shape for Life - an Update

It has been three weeks since I last updated you on my weigh loss progress. At that time I weighed 204.5 pounds. I now weigh 193! An 11 pound loss over three weeks this far into a weight loss program is just plain awesome. That is pretty much the only way I can describe it.

I have lost 80 pounds since Memorial Day, that is Memorial Day of this year. I am very happy with my progress and excited about this weight loss. V's kinda excited about the new me also.

I am just 3 pounds shy of my goal weight of 190 lbs. At my goal weight I will have a healthy Body Mass Index for the first time since my time in the Navy. I will no longer be counted amongst the obese or overweight of America.

If you are interested in losing weight, in achieving the same success as I have achieved, shoot me an email (address is in the profile) or head on over here.

Yes, this is for real. And yes, you can do this.

Congratulations, JR! I've been reading your blog for a while and when you first started this program I pretty much assumed it was yet another weight-loss gimmick, until you started posting your progress. Then I got intrigued. And THEN, you posted pictures, and my mind was blown. Tomorrow will mark one week that I've been on medifast, and so far I've lost 4 pounds. Only 50 to go. I'm definitely happy with that. So, thank you for introducing me to this and congratulations again on your change. I can imagine how great you must feel.

The blog header picture with you and Todd Jarrett is good but I think it's time for some pics of the "new you" at the range, JR!

Also, I'm currently at ~week 7 of the Medifast plan and still loving it. I've come down from about 260 to 229 in that short amount of time. All my co-workers have been noticing my weight loss and that just keeps me motivated to stay on track. Even right now I'm enjoying my after work Dutch Chocolate shake. Over the last 6 years it's been the single greatest step toward life-time weight loss I've ever done.
