    Congrats. I have to lose roughly the same amount, if i can manage it in 16 months like this it'll be shocking.

    For such a young person to be so disciplined. You deserve every reward you get. Now Id say you have maintenance ideas to cover. Keep at it.

    you did a fantastic job!! also thank you for mentioning the optical part. I lost 50lbs & couldn't figure out why my eyesite changed, I'm guessing it's the weight loss

    I think you were the same starting weight as me. I got fed up of what I became and was having trouble sleeping because of my weight. I started at 382lbs and am now 278lbs 6 months in. I made it my goal to get to 225lbs in a year. Maybe eventually get down to 188 lbs which is when I was at my best in the marine Corp. Thats impressive doing it in 16 months without surgery. My eyesight also got a little better.

    I have prolonged my weight loss attempts longer thank I would like to admit! I’m ready to lose at least 100lbs. I’m 60 and weigh 256. My health is beginning to suffer so it’s time! I love food! Cheese, bread, pancakes and sweets! It’s going to be difficult but I’m ready! It’ll be a fun journey and the results will be the best! 🙋🏽‍♀️

    Well---it WOULD be interesting to hear from the OP, since he last logged in in 2015. It makes you wonder if he was able to keep the weight off and what happened.

    I posted but didn't see the 2015 date. I agree with your comment and hope the OP is doing well today.
