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.
