Hey guys, just wanted to add to the awesome success stories here because MFP has been instrumental in this whole process. I ended up somewhere around 460 pounds a few years ago and started considering surgeries but decided to give it a shot myself. I'm 26 now and was younger then so I'm glad I did.
Anyway, I don't take many pictures so I had to track some down! First one was several years ago before I started this. The second was from a few months ago. Now I'm down 100 pounds and still have another 100 to lose but I'm getting there! I'm at around 355 now. I'm 6'4 which helps haha.

Wow! What did you do at the very beginning? When you were at your heaviest? My SW was 280 and my CW is 249. My GW is 155. I’m so proud of you that you lost 180!!!! That’s so amazing and no easy task.... I have a ways to go and was feeling a little down but after seeing your post I have renewed hope. Thanks so much!

There's nothing more encouraging than finding success stories such as yours. You have just revitalized my hope for success. Patience has never been my strong suite and you're living proof that it does pay. Thank you for sharing this update.

I can't tell you how much I needed to hear this this morning! The part where you talk about gaining ten pounds at times, I'm only 6 pounds up from my lowest weight (in years) and it gets so disheartening but I need to just remember how little and insignificant that number is in the big picture! I just need to push through! I've lost 50 so far and I have about 50-60 to go, I'm about half way and I need to be more thankful for that. Your post really helped, thank you.
And congratulations you are so impressive!! You look dang good!!
Oh also I have a question, have you noticed a difference in how people treat you? I'm really curious about that.. (I used to feel invisible and have already noticed people being much nicer)
