As part of my Health Optimization Plan (H.O.P.) – I only weigh myself (officially) once a week.
Here is a summary of my progress to date:
Starting Weight (September 29, 2008)
For the rest of my life, two calendar dates will stand out: April 5, 2005 and September 29, 2008. On April 5, 2005, I started my debt reduction site, No Credit Needed – and in less than a year, I was debt free. On September 29, 2008, I finally felt the “switch flip”, and for the first time in my life, I’m putting all of my effort towards losing weight. It’s hard to describe, but I feel exactly like I did back in 2005 – only this time, I’m focused on weight reduction instead of debt reduction. I’ve never felt (truly) confident about losing weight – until now. So, even though No. Cals has been around a long time, for me, September 29, 2008 will be my true starting date.
Current Weight (October 27, 2008)
I am down 10.4 Pounds. I have been working out (a minimum of) 4 times a week. Just this past week, I started doing interval training – and I feel great.
Goal Weight (September 29, 2009)
My ultimate goal is to lose 90 pounds. 162.2 pounds seems like a long way away, and I might find that my body feels better in the 170 to 180 range. But 162.2 is my goal, and that’s where I’m headed. I’m already 11.5% of the way there!

Current Weight Loss Pace (October 27, 2008)
.3714 Pounds Per Day
I am losing .3714 Pounds Per Day. At that pace, I should reach my goal weight of 162.2 Pounds in 214 more days – May 29, 2009 – which puts me ahead of schedule. Of course, these first pounds will be much easier to lose than those last few, and my pounds per day will decrease, over time, but it feels good to have a head start!
