It was a very long day.  Waiting around forever for the weigh-in. My Optifast meeting is at 6pm, so it is a full day of waiting.

Now those of you that have been following along my journey already know that I have a whole lot to lose. I am hoping by the end to have lost 225 lbs. I am a very big guy. I am 6’5″ tall and I started this with a grand total of 449.8 lbs. So I am warning you: big guy, lots to lose, male — this is going to be a big number.

Without further adieu (as it is late as I write this and I am very tired):

422.8 lbs. — my BMI is 50.1 — I lost a grand total in Week 1 of 27.o lbs.

1/2 of it must have been water.

Here is the chart:

The before and after shot for week 1:

Before: Starting Weight 449.8 lbs.                                                          After: Ending Weight 422.8 lbs. -27.0 lbs.  

  1. Great Caesar’s Ghost!!!

    Holey Moley!!!

    27 pounds. I’m stunned.

    Keep up the fantastic work. WOWOWOW!!!

    Too stunned to be grumpy,

    The Stunned Man 😀

    • Thanks for the comments…
      Yes, well the best news is now I have less that 200 lbs. to lose.
      I might be just under but I am under!

        Way to go optifast Loser!! Looking good! You can really see the 27lbs gone…forever!

        I am in binge mode at the moment and feeling a little envious. The pain and emotions you are feeling from “deprivation” are positive. The pain and emotions I feel from sabotaging myself over and over are negative. I won’t do optifast again, because the deprivation did something terrible to my psyche. But I know it works for you and am happy for you. I will join you eventually and then we’ll both have something positive to share.

      • It is a personal journey and you have to find your own way.
        My wife is at the same place.
        She knows she is going to do it but she just has not figured out how.
        Whatever you choose, I will always love ya…

    I laughed in delight at your number. I am going to read the rest of your blog while I wait for my consult on the 12th. Reading everything about Optifast I can get my hands and eyes on. I like your style. I am a woman but I am “one of the boys” in my mind. I know where you are coming from. I have (only?) 100 to lose and can’t wait to get going!

    • You mention your consult… Is that to start Optifast? Where are you located — what city? 100 lbs. seems impossible when you start this journey — but it is a very attainable. Congrats on taking the first steps… Check out Angry Woman (link here on my site). I am sure you will enjoy her story. Go back and see her first days and you will get a great sense at what is going on.
