50 lb challenge

Here's an email I received from my friend Kevin B about last weekend:

Let’s chalk this up as a splurge weekend. You have been going hard since January and maybe this will be a good break. BUT, tomorrow, you have got to get back on track. How about you knock out another 50 lbs before the end of June? Good goal to set?
I believe this is a good goal to set. I can't control how much my body loses, but I damn sure can control what I eat, drink, and how much I exercise. I will hit all of my marks and see if I can lose another 50 lbs by the end of June. As Joe from Family Guy says, "Let's do this!"
Today I brought my lunch to work, and I'm about to go drink a lot of water. At the end of June I will post my first after picture. Right now at a 50 lb loss there's not too much of a noticeable difference, but all of the blogs that I follow of people in similar situations as myself, 100 lbs seems to be the start of a very noticeable difference in appearance.

I will post my food and exercise tonight.

  1. Good luck with your goal! I look forward to that picture :)

    I had a bit of a splurgy weekend myself, but it's over now.

  2. I don't know if it's a weight lost thing as much as percent loss to notice change. Though I'd bet you can tell a 50 pound loss by putting two pics up - that's quite a lot so far! I didn't have people comment on my weight loss until I'd lost about 16% of my starting weight.

  3. Stephen, congrats man. I am looking forward to hearing about your progress. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help out. You are correct, your biggest challenge is yourself. Good luck and I know getting into better shape is only going to make you a better businessman.

  4. Keep your goal in sight and as long as you are moving in the right direction be happy with the smallest of steps.

    We are all rooting for you and will keep an eye on your progress!

    enjoy every day!

  5. New here, via your new friend Jack! ;-)

    I am very impressed with how you are getting back on track and putting new goals out there. We all just have to keep doing the right thing for ourselves.
