    So awesome that you need to change your name. . . no chubby face any longer! Congrats and kudos for sharing your story. You're an inspiration.

    Agreed! SlimmyMcDreamy or some such thing would be far more appropriate. ...and would love to see that smile from your ‘before’ pic when you are ready to post it. Thanks so much for the post. You give us all hope and inspiration that we too can overcome 💪

    Thank you so much for sharing this inspirational story! You should be so proud of yourself for the changes that you have made and being brave enough to try something different and make the change that made the difference for you.

    Thank you all for the kind words. It means a lot!

    In response to a couple posts:

    - I'll make sure to smile in my next update :smiley:
    - I would change my username, but I had already changed it once so MFP won't allow me to change it again. Oh well.

    You have accomplished something so amazing. Congratulations! So many people need to hear your story. They are stuck in a place where they see no way out. Overweight, depressed, no motivation to begin the change. You dug your way out one shovel full at a time and changed your health so you can live a long life, your appearance so you can have self esteem and feel confident, and your environment so you can go out into the world and make friends and fall in love. Blessings to you my friend.

    Wow. You are such an inspiration and I'm sure many people do and will feel that way. Depression alone is a killer in less obvious ways. You have managed to kick multiple things and find yourself for the first time (I still haven't kicked the smoking). You are AMAZING :smile: and you deserve love and you deserve happiness and this wonderful woman you met loves you because you are you. Not because of your weight lost or anything, but because you are you. Thank you for sharing. I struggle with depression and this is so wonderful to read!

    Congrats brother! What a milestone. I clicked your thread because of the 200lbs. That is approximately my ultimate goal loss. I know what you've been through. I started at 397. What broke it for me, was the realization that I was about to broach 400lbs. It was an arbitrary ceiling, but one I was determined not to breach. I am only down 104lbs so far, so it is encouraging to see someone who has done it and lost more. Thanks for sharing!

    You make me smile. Your story is amazing and your determination and willingness to achieve are going to take you even further. I can do nothing but wish you continued success. Great work!

    Really interesting and inspirational story. I think many men have depression but it is undiagnosed and untreated as they power through it. A good lesson for men of all weights.
