Great idea, though this belt would not have come close to fitting around me back in May. I used one of those 72" web belts that you trim to fit back then.

Going from size 60 jeans to size 44 in 2" increments gives me a pretty good idea of how my "waist" has shrunk. I have some 44 Wranglers that are a bit loose and some 44 Levis that are a better fit (both "loose cut"). I suspect I'll be into my 42s sometime in April or thereabouts.

47 M 5'8"

May 4, 2010...... 440? lbs. (Start FitDay Size 60 Jeans)
June 19, 2010.... 393 lbs. (First Weigh-in)
June 19, 2011.... 229 lbs. (164 lbs. gone in one year :-)
Current Weight... 185 lbs. (Size 36 Jeans)

Next Goal 169 lbs. (07/04/12)
Ultimate Goal 165 lbs. (12/31/12)

The best exercises for weight loss are Fork Putdowns and Table Pushaways.
