A WOW Triple Play
Aug 01, 2009
I'm not sure how it happened, but within the space of 10 days, I've scored a WOW triple play!
Nobody out. Runners on First and Second. Here's the pitch….
100 lbs Lost Forever -- July 23, 2009 -- "It's a line drive to the shortstop. He snags it!"
I started out this journey at 303 pounds. I lost 30 pounds from October 2008 to my surgery in March 2009. By July 23, 2009 (almost 4 months after surgery), I had lost another 70 pounds.
"One-derland" -- July 29, 2009 -- "He steps on the bag at second for the second out"
It had taken me almost a month to get from 210 to 203, but once I crossed the 100 lb barrier it didn't stop. Six days later, I was at 199.8. Yeeee Hawwwww! I hadn't been below 200 in 10 years and that was only after I had been in the hospital for a month.
No Longer Obese -- August 1, 2009 -- "On to First -- TRIPLE PLAY!!!!"
OK -- Just Barely. Today I hit 197. It shows up on my ticker as a BMI of 30 (Obese). But officially, it is 29.95!!! I'm now down into the Overweight category!
I don't post here very often but I do "lurk" everyday. I get a lot of encouragement and help from all the great supporters on this board. So, thanks to ALL of you.
The journey is only beginning.
