60 Days – Over 30 pounds and 13 inches

It’s really hard to believe that I am 60 days into this crazy idea I had about getting in shape and making some huge lifestyle changes, but I am. First, a huge thanks to everyone who has helped along the way. Julie and the kids, Ed at Ed’s Gym and everyone who works out there with me, and everyone who has read, commented and shared here on the blog and on all the social media platforms, your support has kept me going on the days I didn’t want to go to the gym and wanted to eat junk.

I’m making progress towards my goals and wanted to give everyone an update on where I am 60 days in. Here is a comparison between day one and today. If you want the 30 day comparison you can find it here.

Waist at umbillicus: Day 1: 48.75, Day 60: 43.75, Difference -5 inches

Hips: Day 1: 42.5, Day 60: 41, Difference -1.5 inches

Chest: Day 1: 47, Day 60: 44.25, Difference -2.75 inches

Around Shoulders: Day 1: 54, Day 60 51.75, Difference -2.25 inches

Mid Thigh: Day 1: 23.25, Day 60: 23, Difference -.25 inches

Bicep: Day 1: 15, Day 60: 14.25, Difference -.75 inches

Neck: Day 1: 17.75, Day 60: 16.75, Difference -1 inch

 

That’s a grand total of 13.5 inches lost in 60 days.

When I stepped on the scales Day 1 I weighed in at 263.8 pounds, today I stepped on the scales and saw the number 232.2. I’ve lost 31.6 pounds in 60 days.

I’m really excited about the progress I’m making – not only are the numbers dropping, but I’m feeling better and better and getting stronger. I’ve almost reached my weight goal to start running. Hopefully, I’ll be there in a couple of weeks.

The rest of the post comes with the same warning as the 30 day update. For those of you who havent’ eaten yet, or will be eating shortly, proceed with caution. I’ve included some before and after pics and I don’t have a shirt on. So if you want to continue, get out those sunglasses again because my tan-less, flabby body may cause irreparable eye and psychological damage.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So 60 days in and I’m feeling better than I have in years. I still have a long way to go, but I can’t believe how much progress I’ve made.

If you’re in Colorado Springs and are thinking about starting your own journey to health and fitness, I can’t recommend Ed’s Gym enough. In fact, I’d love to have you come down and join me for a free session to find out what it’s like. If you’re interested, let me know in the comments.

For those of you who started the year off strong and have already given in or are slowing down – get back in the game. For those who haven’t made a commitment to be healthier in 2012, today is just as good as Jan 1 to start the journey. You can do this! I know, because I’m doing it.
