Weigh In

Special Friday Weigh In – Down 23.4 Pounds – Kidney Stone Goodbye

As part of my Health Optimization Plan (H.O.P.) – my official weigh in days are Mondays.

This week, however, I had to deal with a kidney stone.

The kidney stone is gone, so I decided to do my weigh in on Friday.

Here is a summary of my progress to date:

Starting Weight (September 29, 2008)

252.2 Pounds

Weight Last Monday (December 8, 2008)

230.4 Pounds

Current Weight (December 18, 2008)

228.8 Pounds

I have lost a total of 23.4 pounds!  I lost 1.6 pounds last week!

Goal Weight (September 29, 2009)

162.2 Pounds

My ultimate goal is to lose 90 pounds. I have 66.6 pounds to go.

I was unable to go to the gym this week, due to the kidney stone.  Now that I feel better, I can’t wait to get back on the treadmill.  Frankly, I’m surprised that I lost any weight, and I’m super excited to be so close to 225.  Rock on.

  1. Kidney stones are definitely no fun. I was lucky enough to pass my first one in the hospital 10 mins after getting my one and only taste of morphine! I’ve passed two more at home which were more of an interesting experience than painful. Anyway, one extremely cheap, and healthy, home preventive measure to take is to eat celery on a daily or semi-daily basis. I can’t remember what celery contains that stops the formation of new kidney stones, but this remedy has worked wonders for me, and how can you go wrong eating fresh celery?
