Sporty: 50 inch waist

Confession .... I have a beer belly. Yes it's true, I do. I can't deny it anymore. The picture to the right is of a man with a "beer belly" ... a 50 inch waist.
My waist is 52 inches!!! I know I'm fat and in danger of all sorts of health risks but seeing this picture really brings the message home.
So in the spirit of confession, here are my stats and goals:
Pounds to Lose = 118.2
Body Fat % to Lose= 21.9
Inches to Lose = 55
Starting Wt = 248
Goal Wt = 128
Current Wt = 246.2
Body Fat %
Starting BF% = 45.9
Goal BF% = 24
Current BF% = 45.9
Chest = 54 1/2
Waist = 52
Hips = 51
Beer Belly = Motivation

Hi I was searching Google as I wanted to learn more about weight loss. I started at 54 inch waist and 18 and half stones (UK) or 259 Lbs.
Ive been on a weight loss programme for four weeks and have lost 10lbs. My waist is now down to 51 inches.
I had a heart scan last week and it scared me so much that I am 100% zeroed in on becoming a better shape.
I quit all booze and eat according to the food pyramid (see CDC.GOV)
I am one determined old guy!!

I had a heart scare last week. I was hospitalized after chest pains. Apparently I have had 1 heart attack already. YIKES!

I have now lost 15lbs (1Stone 1 Lb, or 7Kg). My fat stomach now measures 49.5 inches.

I have still quit drinking booze and am still focussed. (More so than ever)

Im getting there!

The determined Old Guy!
