Inspiration: 10% Weight Loss

Posted by: delitaagain In: Motivation|New Me

Round, a 3FC chick who switched to her own website: http://lowstressweightloss.com, admits to having found this somewhere but can’t credit it. I’ve already done this and today I am thinking about doing it again.

  • A fall in premature death by about 20-25%
  • A fall in diabetes-related death of about 30%
  • A fall in obesity-related cancers by about 40%
  • A fall in blood pressure of about 10/20 mmHg
  • A fall of 50% in the risk of developing diabetes
  • A fall in glucose levels of about 30-50%
  • A fall in total cholesterol of about 10%
  • A fall in LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) of about 15%
  • A fall in triglycerides of about 30%
  • A rise in protective HDL of about 8%

Weight Watchers also shares What Losing 10% Can Do. Be sure to scroll down to read the article.

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.
