I lost 125 pounds! (before and after pic) it wasn't easy but MFP was a lifesaver!

Starting vs Current
Weight: 305 to 182
Pant size: 44 to 32
Shirt size: 2-3xl to L-M (depends on brand)
Mile time: 12 mins to 7:22

It was tough but so worth it. I am still trying to lose slightly more but I'm about there! Now its about staying the course and continuing to improve myself :)duuessca1b64.jpg

    I lost around 30 pounds in about 6 months. And then found MFP. I started this at 273 in February of last year! So all in all it took about a year and a half but it sped up a lot more when I tracked what I was eating. I try to eat "natural foods". So fruits, vegetables, nuts, unprocessed/lightly processed meats, mainly chicken and fish. I'm not immune to occasionally being lazy and buying a few lean cuisine premade meals.

    I stick between 1550 and 1750 ccalories a day (gradually went down from 2200 to 2400 at the beginning) I also have one calculated cheat day a week. Usually Friday. I eat whatever I want but I have to write it down on Thursday. So if I want Brownies or Taco Bell (my old favorite lol) I can but I have to decide exactly how much I'm going to have and what. So I call it a "calculated binge" and it can be up to a 2800 calorie day.

    I have found jogging or even walking to be really good exercise. I also like run a mile as fast as I can at least once a week to track that progress. I try to do cardio 2-3 times a week. I also lift weights 1-2 times a week. I don't lift much but try to do a lot of reps.

    It might not be the best way for you or anyone else to do it but it worked for me! Thanks for all the support guys! :)

    Now for the difficult part :wink:

    It's good that you did this at such a young age. You wont have the same problems with lose skin etc. That "older" people face (like me).
