Fourth of July Lose 10% of Your Body Weight Challenge
With April 1st come and gone, it's time for another Challenge. Just like last time we'll have a check-in thread and a discussion thread.
Post your starting info (I like to list starting weight, then pounds lost and percentage, but to each his/her own) then update as you like. To create your post, "Copy and Paste" the last thread and add/update your info. Let's keep the list in alpha order if we can.

To calculate percentage of body weight lost, you simply divide pounds lost by starting weight. Ex: 10 pounds lost, starting weigt of 185 equals .054 or rounded down, 5%.
Note, the 10% figure is just a suggestion and you're free to work towards any goal you like.

The Fourth of July is our thirtieth wedding anniversary. (yikes!) Another 10 percent would put me at around 185 which is about what I weighed at our wedding. I was an avid runner back then, not so much anymore. Not sure I can get back to that weight but it's worth a try. My lovely wife, of course, weighs exactly the same. Her weight never varies (except when she was pregnant). I am sure my wife has secretly disposed of my wedding suit despite my claims it would fit again. I guess that my second motivation to lose the weight so I can say "i told you so". Nothing like being married 30 years
