Weight Update

Even though I am much skinnier, people still have a hard time getting past the whole "two head thing"

August 1st  242 lbs (BMI of 32.8) classified obese with a risk factor for high blood pressure, heart disease, adult onset diabetes, hypertension etc and etc.

November 29 194 lbs (BMI of 26.3) classifed slightly overweight with all all of the above risk factors either eliminated or seriously diminished

Total weight loss to date= 48 lbs.  

When I hit 184 lbs I will have fallen into the "normal" category with a BMI of 24.9

Stay tuned......................

Wow, are doing GREAT!! I am so proud of your determination to not give up.
The most important thing is that you have a healthy lifestyle now and many years ahead to enjoy your family. It is so important to cut out those health risk factors. You are increasing your odds for a fit longevity!
Love you, Mom

Congratulations, Garrett! You look so wonderful, but then, you always look wonderful to me. You may have lost weight on the outside, but you seem to have grown in strength and wisdom on the inside. Making this lifestyle change early on is a tribute to you and the devotion you have for your family. Tasha and the boys are blessed to have you (and so are we).
Love you lots,
