edited June 2020 in Success Stories
I started January 6 2020 at 245 pounds. My height is 5' 3". I'm counting calories and doing some strength training, since the weather warmed up I've been swimming. As of the start of this thread I've lost 53 pounds and am currently at 192. I started out at about 50% body fat, and right now I'm a little under 40% body fat. I started at BMI of 40 and now I'm at around 35. Muscle mass is currently 25.5 percent and hasn't dropped appreciably.

I'll update this thread as I make significant improvements. :smiley:

Anyway, here's my starting picture, taken in the middle of 2019:
