One Year of Weight Loss and Maintenance

One Year of Weight Loss and Maintenance

I think my 2-year old nephew's birthday party last year was the last straw.  I had just come back from Berlin feeling bloated and slow, and then I pigged out on pizza, chips and brownies at Nate's birthday party.  That Monday, I decided to change things up.

I was going to start doing three things:

  1. I was going to modify my diet. Essentially, less sugar and junk food and smaller portions of the foods I love.  I was going to be smarter about what I put in my body.
  2. I was going to exercise more - more walking, biking all summer long and now swimming every weekday
  3. I was going to weigh-in every morning, documenting my progress via Wii Fit

Below is how my weight chart looks after this morning's weigh-in.  I bounced off the bottom in September and started building mass with the swimming.

Here's the tale of the tape:

  • Feb 3, 2012: 86 kg (189.5 lbs)
  • Jan 31, 2013: 66.3 kg (146.1 lbs)

I still eat lots of pizza and pasta, and if you bake me cookies, I'll have a few, I'm just aware of what my decisions do to my body.  It's simple math: calories consumed - calories burned.

I've never felt better.
