After several years of losing weight the old fashion way (diet and exercise), this month I reached my goal. I’m somewhere between embarrassed and proud of this “after” picture taken for my testimonial. I don’t think that my self image is still stuck on “jolly fat guy”, but this picture of “fit Alan” still looks like a photoshop project to me.
Yeah, yeah – I worked hard, changed my lifestyle, altered my diet, and work out regularly (under the supervision of Mikki Reilly, the best trainer ever) (and Kalia, my trainer can take your trainer), but I was still stunned when Mikki showed me the results of my body fat measurement – 10.2%. Whoa! That puts me in the “athletic” range. Quite a change from the “morbidly obese” category I started at 6 years ago.
