My top weight was 300 pounds. 10% lost was 270. I got the clear benefits of feeling better, more energy, being able to move more, etc. Wonder what the stats would be for doing it twice?
If I lose 10% again, that will be 243. As some of you know, I’m off weighing in. But, for the record, I weighed in recently dressed, mid-day at… 255 plus. A month ago I was below 250.
Heading off to Missouri for a week. May fit in a couple workouts.
