Weight Loss Progress
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

In 1999, I lost 70 pounds. By November 29, 2009 I had gained back the 70 pounds I lost in 1999 along with a 55 pound bonus. Most of my major weight losses have been in years ending in 9. I hope to repeat this history of successful weight losses during 2009 / 2010. I am determined to loose 10+ pounds by the end of 2009, and an additional 140 pounds or so by the end of 2011.

Four years ago today was my last workday. I have experienced a fantastic four years of retirement, and hopefully will have many more. Unfortunately, permanent weight loss has not been one of my retirement accomplishments. Today, I am 110 pounds heavier than I was in August, 1999, 44 pounds heavier than last year, and 28 pounds heavier than my last workday four years ago. Last year I did loose some weight, but, as usual, it was not a permanent loss.

Enough is enough - today I am definitely starting a major weight loss of at least 110 pounds by next June 16th.

Next Monday, June 16, will be the 4th anniversary of my last workday. My retirement date is June 30, 2004. I had to use or loose some personal time before retiring, so June 16 was the last day I worked. I have enjoyed my retirement immensely, but have had no success in maintaining any substantial weight loss. On Monday, June 16, 2008, the fourth anniversary of my last workday, I will absolutely start a major, long term weight loss of at least 120 pounds. I will still enjoy my retirement activities, I just want to enjoy the activities as a thinner man. As indicated in earlier posts, I love to walk; however, the surplus weight has hindered the distance I can comfortably walk. Loosing the weight will help me to walk easier, and thus enjoy my retirement activities even more. I am out every day (usually using subway/bus), and walking is an intricate part of all activities from attending a geek meeting, or movie to just enjoying a nice stroll along Boston Harbor, or the Esplanade.
