There's an old phrase about gift horses and mouths. I think I'll abide by it and not spend too much time trying to figure out how I lost another 3 pounds this week, but rather just enjoy what appears to be a weight loss fiesta of incredible proportions. I am now within 18 pounds of my goal with 18 weeks remaining. I think it's safe to say that if I remain dedicated I should be able to get there earlier than expected. I've been getting a lot of questions about what I am going to do after that and how much I plan on losing total. The answer is pretty simple. There is no after, and wherever I level off is fine with me. That's been my whole philosophy with this thing is that I'm doing it in a way that I can live with it for the rest of my life. I will continue to run and work out, I will continue to eat smaller portions every three hours. In fact, I can't imagine it any differently. My guess is that I will level off around the 250 mark or so, which should be around 15% body fat. Where I will be come December 7th though is anybody's guess (well unless you want to do the math, in which case I've averaged 2.41 pounds a week, so another 18 weeks will put me 43.41 more pounds down, leaving me at 244 on December 7th, but really who needs math.) The point is, things are going amazing and I appreciate each and every one of you who check in on this blog and encourage with your words and pledges. Feel free to drop me a note in the comments and I'll see you next Friday!
