Achievement Accomplished: 175 lbs


Well, 174.2 lbs, actually. I blew past 175 and into 174’s. I know, the stars aligned and conditions must have been perfect, because I lost 2.8 lbs this past week alone after going months with that much total.

175 lbs was my initial goal when I started before I reduced my goal weight to 165 lbs. 175 is still a big deal to me, though. It is the max allowable weight as a Marine according to MCO P6110.3 (the Marine Corps Order on body composition and military appearance), and at a minimum, I wanted to be within the order. Now that I’m there, I will continue to work to 165 lbs. If I get there, I’ll be happy. If not anytime soon, it’s okay. It’ll be my goal to hit at some point, but I’m not going to go through any crazy lengths to get there. 175 lbs is a good weight for me, and I’m okay with it. My clothes all fit nicely, I feel good, and I am getting more and more fit by the week.

So, it was happy dance time for me on Saturday (when this actually happened). I almost cried. Yes, it was a big deal. Before Whole30 and Paleo, I never thought I’d be this light again. Ever.

Yet, here I am.

It feels good. Really good.
