When I started on April 24th my weight was 364 with a BMI of 46.73. A month later on May 24th I was at 354 with a BMI of 45.45. Today I am at 348.5 with a BMI of 44.68. Most of my 3x tshirts are getting to be pretty big on me and I really have to cinch my belt to keep my pants or shorts up. I could probably go down a size in my pants but I am waiting to the currents ones literally fall off before I go buy more clothes. My first goal is to be down to 300 by January when we have a big family trip to Disney World. Secretly, I hope to beat that goal and be under 300 by then but I'm not going to sweat that. I know I have a long way to go still but now I know I can really live healthier.
Hope all is well with everyone.
Good going, Chris! I bet you'll easily reach the 200's by 01/01 if you keep doing what you're doing. Congrats on your success thus far.
