April 6th of this year I was at an Obese Class 2 BMI, and on the last day of the year I hit normal weight! I know it's just a number, but it was a goal that I thought would take me a couple years to achieve if ever.
Starting weight: 280 lbs
Current weight: 189 lbs
Ultimate goal weight: 180 lbs
Diet: Nothing special, just strict and consistent calorie counting and staying within my calorie deficit. I only went over my calories twice this year, Thanksgiving day and Christmas day. For my first 50 lbs, I logged in a notebook. I joined MFP in July and have lost an additional 41 lbs since then.
Exercise: I started off my journey with just walking around 2-3 miles a day for 5-6 days a week. I now exercise 7 days a week alternating between full body weight training and spin bike for my cardio. I also do 100-150 push ups on my cardio days. I went from barely doing 2 pushups to 50 in a row.
