Day 120: 4 months of FUCK YEAH

The journey so far:

120 days since Feb. 1st.
62 gym workouts
100+ miles walked around the neighborhood

Net loss so far 18 pounds since Feb 1st. Net loss since last year is approximately 32 pounds.

Now I can say that but it doesn't really convey a tangible sense of the progress so far. Here's a little math and then a more visual example.

1 pound of butter (4 sticks) carries 3200 calories. If you're up to scratch on your nutrition you know that one pound of fat has about 3500 calories. The difference comes from some water and milk solids in said butter.

Now 18 pounds of fat in the body are sure to include some water, protein and bloodvessels so we'll use it as an analog for body fat. 18 pounds of butter is 72 sticks of net fat loss over the span of 16 weeks.

That's about .6 sticks of butter PER DAY for about 4 months.

Oh and here's a picture of 20 pounds of fat for comparison.

Mmm, bacon. At my current level of progress, despite the 2 week slow down, I could probably live on bacon and still lose weight.
