This list is to track my entire weight loss journey. I don't want multiple lists going for myself.

HIGH LEVEL VIEW:
-- Started 6/27/2016


Click Here For The Summer 2016 Challenge Main Page


WHAT STARTED IT ALL:
Before the first weight loss challenge, I thought I was around 235 lbs, which is my highest ever, but my first time on a scale in months (6/27) revealed that I was 245.6 lbs. Ouch.

Since I am 6'2", that leads to a BMI of 31.5.

Underweight = <18.5
Normal weight = 18.5–24.9
Overweight = 25–29.9
Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater

I am officially obese. The BMI scale has its limits, but for the most part, it is accurate. The fact is, I am fat and I need to not be.

WHAT I AM DOING TO LOSE WEIGHT:
-- Drinking 125 oz of water a day
-- Walking 20,000+ steps a day (yep planning on doing 10 miles per day!)
-- Not eating any sugar (pop, candy, chocolate, etc), greatly reducing my carbs. -- I am trying to fill up on mostly grilled chicken and salads.

I am also planning on participating in the 5 k Orc Stomp at Origins and don't want to embarrass myself there.

Week 1: 7/4/2016

I am feeling motivated to start this competition... competitions do that for me. While I am definitely aiming for the 6%, and I am gunning for the highest % of weight loss, I know this is a longer term project that needs to last after the competition has ended.

Starting Weight: 245.6 lbs
Body Fat %: 31.5%

This Week's Loss:
Guess: 6-8 lbs lost this week (motivated, drastic change in habits should see higher losses this week)
Actual: (pending)

Goal Weights:
6% To Get Geekgold: 230.9 (-14.7 lbs)
Estimated 1st Place: 215.6 (-30.0 lbs)
Weight to get to "normal" BMI: 194 (51.6 lbs)

Let's do this!

Just a quick update for this week, I didn't even weigh myself yesterday at all, I can't find a reliable scale here in Brazil and probably wouldn't trust or want to see the number if I did. I am spending about 8-10 days in Sao Paulo, Brazil and have not been here in 21 years. I am taking advantage of the food as I LOVE Brazilian food. Also I am staying in a pretty sketchy area of the city and so haven't been going out on runs at night or in the morning. I have been walking a lot and not overdoing it too badly on food, but I know I haven't been as strict as I was planning on.

I'll be doing better next week when I return to the States but for now I'm pretty much coasting this week. I expect big things next week though!
