I Hate Linux

Wednesday, December 12, 2007

Now merely overweight

This morning I hopped on the scale for my daily weigh in and it told me I'd reached 246 lbs.

Woot!

While not an important number on it's own... nor is the 169.2 lbs I've lost since starting very special either, a quick look at a BMI calculator (along with my height of 6'4") tells me that I've now got a BMI (yes I know it's a flawed system) of 29.9... which means reached the zone of 'overweight' instead of 'obese'.

Yippie.

Today:

169.2 Down - Front

169.2 Down - Side

Compare that to before this all started:

Before - Front

Next stop... a BMI of <25 and being of 'normal weight' which we should see in another... 42 lbs or so.

  • What's your secret (seriously!)?

    And when will you release the I Hate Linux Diet Handbook (not-so-seriously)?

  • In fact the I Hate Linux Diet relies (at least for me) on laziness through Nutrisystem which I've been doing for ~18 months now.

    Back in May when I hit one year on the plan I wrote extensively on it.

  • Well Done!

    I'm also trying to loose weight - and failing to get below about 280lbs - Nutrisystem looks good (and would probably suit me too) - but doesn't appear to be available in the UK :-(

    Seeing your "before" and "after" photos makes me think I can probably try a bit harder and make some progress too.

    (and yes, this is my first comment on your site, been following for a while thanks to the Home Server content!)

  • Thanks Tom,

    From the sounds of it Nutrisystem should be coming to the UK sometime next year.

  • Brendan -
    You look good, dude! Great work in getting the weight off! You look 10 years younger -- seriously!
