Hello 239lbs, How Ya Doing?

Today I hit 239lbs on the scale! Woot! I can't remember the exact time I was last at that weight but I think it was right after I got married that is when I was passing it up in the wrong direction! I've always considered 240lbs my "starting point" as that is the first time I realized I was heading down a path but never EVER did I think for a moment I would get as far out of shape, gain as much weight, and get as unhealthy as I had.

I don't consider the 239lbs "real" just yet. Could be a temporary water weight thing and I will put some back on when I drink all my water today. However what it means is that I hit it.... and making it "real" is either HERE NOW or right around the corner.

Getting below 240lbs took longer than anticipated due to the fact I was able to get back on my bike and ride for exercise. When I do that the first thing that happens is I gain a bunch of leg muscle and of course that adds weight. No problem, happy to have it!

I can honestly say that if AdvoCare had not come into my life I would still be struggling and attempting to out-exercise the problem. For sure I would have cleaned up my eating and lost a bit more but there is NO QUESTION that the addition of the 24 Day Challenge and the nutritional habits I've gained from staying with it has been the key. Success has followed success, meaning I see progress so I wanted more. I've had a day here and there where I blew it (sometimes on purpose) but I was able to get back on track and keep moving forward.

When I get to 220lbs I'll post a before and after photo set.

Great job. I hit 239 today also. I was 272 back in January. Goal is 210 by 7/12 and 180 by the end of the year.

Nice job! I don't think I can get below 200 safely.
