Week 65: Notable Numbers

This was a fairly uneventful week in my Operation Melt journey particularly compared to last week’s excitement. So I thought I would share some notable numbers from the week.


Yesterday was the 15-month anniversary of the decision that changed my life. On 6/15/2017 I decided that I had enough of being obese and I was committed to fixing it. I committed to losing over 100 pounds in under a year. I didn’t know how I was going to do it, I didn’t know if I was going to be successful, I did have a bunch of rules about what I wasn’t going to do but I decided I was going to try.


This week marked the 6 month anniversary of achieving my original weight loss goal of losing 100 pounds. I accomplished the goal in just 9 months instead of my planned 12 months. Since then I have not only kept the weight off but continued to make progress.

129 or 39.8

My total weight loss is up to 129.2 pounds as of Friday. This represents nearly 40% of my body weight lost through this journey. This is particularly notable this week because my weight loss has slowed significantly but I did see some new movement this week and am at a new low weight!

110 or 56

I set a new personal record this week with my deadlifting weight. I deadlifted 110 pounds with my trainer this week. That is 56% of my body weight! I am going to say I am on track to be able to deadlift my body weight by the end of the year!


I only ran 12 miles this week because of a series of changes to my exercise routine. Fortunately 8 of those 12 miles were my long run on Sunday. I am getting a little nervous about my readiness for the half marathon but I have come too far and accomplished to much to be afraid at this point!


The last number to share this week is 100. I am 100% happy that I made the decision to change my life! I am 100% proud of myself and my accomplishments! I am 100% convinced that I am unstoppable and can accomplish anything!

Thanks for reading! Check back next week for more!
