As Dave G’s 4 month (and $50 bet) came to a close last week, he sent us an e-mail outlining his accomplishments during that period, as well as some impressive photos! Congrats, Dave …
Hi Greg –
Here are my before and after pictures, as promised. It should be pretty obvious which are which. In retrospect, I have come a long way, and it is a great feeling. I lost my fifty dollar bet fair and square, but the fact remains that I lost forty-one pounds of fat in 16 weeks. (April 19th to August 16th) Even though my coworker Erik won the bet, he admitted that he thought I did a great job which was both unexpected and way cool.
This morning I went into the Amity Starbucks. I haven’t been in that one for 3-4 months because I usually take a different route to work and hit the one in Shelton. Anyway, Moira, the sweetheart cashier, greeted me – “Hello David! Where have you been? We missed you! Wow – you lost so much weight – you look great!” I have to say, it felt really good.
My original intention was to join CrossFit just until my big fiftieth birthday last week, then quit. But since joining in mid-April, there has been such a transformation on so many levels in *addition* to the physical ones that I won’t be leaving anytime soon. But yesterday’s goal is already old news, and I have to set some new ones. Back to business I guess.
See you soon,
