How do you measure a year in the life?

March 23rd, 2011


I’ll take a stab, how about twenty six thousand and seven hundred and sixty-two grams. (fifty-nine pounds or four point two stones)

According to my logs, today marks the one year anniversary of the first weigh in of my journey to become healthier, primarily by losing weight.  My strategy has been to eat less and move more. Using mobile applications and online tools like Weight Watchers Online and LoseIt! I’ve tracked how much I’ve eaten and adjusted my intake to eat sensibly.  I’ve used iPhone applications and websites like DailyMile and RunKeeper to track my exercises, and making steady progress without major injury.  Finally using social networks like Facebook and Twitter (as well as my LoseIt! friends Holla!)I’ve used the support of many friends (both online and offline) to encourage me on this journey.  I’m not done yet, I still have around 2/3rds, but I’m proud of the steady progress and the 59 pounds I’ve lost so far.

Thank YOU! For all your encouragement and support!

    Jon, awesome man. Simply awesome. You should be very proud of your accomplishments!

    On a side note, how did you make that graph? Is that something you created or is that from a site/app?

    Thanks all. The encouragement y’all give me helps me carry on!.

    @Rob: The graph is a screen capture from the iPhone app True Weight (in landscape mode). I edited it with GIMP, and deleted the blue background and overlaid it as a layer on top of the two photos.
