Day 20

Three weeks into The Drive to 55
I can see some progress
I have to focus on the progress
I get more of what I focus on
I measure success by what I have changed
224 lb to 211 lbs

I thank God for progress so far and pray for an appetite only for things that nourish my strength

Nine weeks to go
Goal is 196 lbs and bodyfat 9%
Goal bench press body weight 30 reps
Goal cholesterol 185, Total/HDL 3.0
Goal 32” jeans

  1. Wow. The pictures speak for themselves. Progress indeed. Keep strong. I’ll be weighing myself on Tuesday morning as I’m away until tomorrow eve (and I just use the one good scales for consistency). Got my walk done, and bodyweight upper (situps, triceps between 2 chairs, use my suitcase for shoulders, superman with 2ltrs water) and plank 5×45 secs.. we are in the middle of nowhere so no gym. I’ll pinch some of your power focus visualizations. Mine to date as I do my power walks are more on body shape, living long and healthy with my girls, and how I will feel without the weight. Tomorrow I’ll get my walk done before I leave, but the workout will be when I get back to Ireland. My nutrition travels with me 😉

  5. This is incredible progress, Bill! I started my journey at 212lbs and I’m now at 197. I think I will be happy in 9-weeks if my “after” pic looks anything like your “before” pic. I’m still with you so thanks for the inspiration!
