The motivation for me trying to get down to a lower weight was shallow: I wanted to look good in a slim cut suit. Searching around, I found that most of the tv guys my height (6') weighed around 155 lbs or so. For most of the last 20 years, I have weighed right around 168 lbs. So I took it as a challenge to get leaner, and to do it in time for AHS12.
My journey started in April at 170 lbs. It ended at 155 lbs in August, for a total loss of 15 lbs. Now I realize this isn't some kind of dramatic transformation, as I was normal weight in the first place. But my goal was to experiment and find out what variables drove weight loss.
So how did I lose the weight? Exactly as I laid out in the "How To Lose Weight" page. By the end, I established a repeatable system that is explained via the page.
I was hoping to end up looking similar to Matt Bomer in a suit (minus the movie star good looks of course). I'm sure he is wearing a more expensive suit, but I think I came pretty close.
I'm working on some followup posts with more detail as well.
