If you keep that up you wont be the heaviest person here for long.
That's one of the few advantages to being really heavy--you can lose weight FAST! When I was over 400 my daily calorie burn figured over 4,000 calories--cut your calorie intake to 1000 and your deficit equals almost a pound a day, not to mention the vast amount of fluid that your body starts to release once you give it chance.
It's certainly not unheard of to drop 40, 50 lbs or more the first month if you're really heavy.
PS Mark, I see you're also chuggin' right along--that April 1 goal looks good!
