Jared Lorenzen is down almost 100 pounds

By now you all know much we love Jared Lorenzen around here. Not only is he a KSR podcaster and a member of our team, but he’s also a dear friend who we adore.

So it was exciting to read USA Today’s story on Lorenzen’s weight loss progress, which is nearing the 100-pound mark over the course of a year. I spoke to Jared this afternoon to check in and he said he’s down 80 pounds as of today since starting the Jared Lorenzen Project.

“It’s amazing how much better I feel,” he told me.

The craziest part about his weight loss is, according to the story, he dropped 70 pounds in six weeks. But with the rapid weight loss has come the realization that he’s not the athlete he once was and he has to be careful with how hard he pushes his body these days.

For more, read the story here and then send him a tweet or comment below to let him know we’re all proud of him and rooting for more.

Keep it up, Jared!

    ‘ATTA BOY JARED! This news makes my day….one of my all time UK favorites showing he has the right stuff to take on a huge challenge. I’ll get a few extra minutes on the elliptical machine every day myself in tribute.

    Keep killin’ it Jared. As a 30+ year old Army Ranger, rest and recovery are just as important as the nutrition and fitness routine I maintain. Just part of getting old, don’t stress that part. You’re more courageous than most to start this journey, now prove to us all you still have the grit and fight in you.
