Great post! To add to this: "The Nike+ FuelBand is an awesome piece of technology that you wear on your wrist and synch to your iPhone" - I think there's major potential in wrist band technology. Not just for measurement/tracking purposes but for interacting with our environment as well...

David Meerman Scott

Adam - I agree. Thanks.

Peter Clayton

Great post, David. You look 20 yrs younger as well. A real inspiration.

Eugene Zelenyi

Thank you for the inspiration. I'm currently in the process of shedding some extra poundage myself, so the intro didn't seem long at all.

Great work, but don't you mean: "I now have the body of people just out of University, people who are *half* my chronological age."?

Dennis @ Brochure Boxes

Well done David. Thank You for sharing. With the nicer weather coming, a great motivator is someone who wanted to change and did.

David Meerman Scott

Thank you Eugene, Peter, and Dennis.
Facebook user - yikes! Yes. Thanks - I fixed it.

Bob Zagami

Unbelievable David, especially when you consider your travel schedule, foreign countries, airport food (ugh!), etc. Great motivation for the rest of us.

David Meerman Scott

Thanks Bob. Yes, all the conferences I speak at are a challenge. But I made a lifestyle change so it is easier than you'd think.

Jamie Turner

I always tell people it took me 10 years to lose 5 pounds, so I know exactly where you're coming from.

This is a print-worthy post, David. Thanks for sharing.

Bravo! A truly inspirational post!

Great post David. Metrics are important to achieve any goal. For me, my weight loss came when I engaged in the sport of cycling this past winter. I immediately purchased a GPS on-board device that measured more than the basics, such as monitoring heart rate and how fast I pedal. Big difference between knowing how hard I worked versus just knowing how often I went for a ride. Calories burned is my favorite as long as I don't view it as permission to indulge in a treat afterwards. Congrats on achieving your health & fitness goals!

Anne Sorensen

Thanks David for this. Loved the analogy with organizations and measurement - measuring what matters. Congratulations too on your awesome weight loss -- very inspirational! The metabolic age of a 25 year old -- fantastic! Wow! (watch out 25 year olds! :) ) Take care - have a great weekend!

David Meerman Scott

Michael - the GPS units are great. I have one as an iPhone app which I use when I go for walks.

Thanks Anne!!

Great post. It is easy to put on the weight as you get older. Just by getting into a habit of having an extra snack here and there you can put on excess of weight.
There is also a cool iphone app called Myfitnesspal which also helps you record what you eat, exercise and so on.

Devise a plan or a way of getting there which makes the goal realistic. The goal needs to be realistic for you and where you are at the moment. A goal of never again eating sweets, cakes, crisps and chocolate may not be realistic for someone who really enjoys these foods.
