At the start of January I went to a soccer game with some friends. I was so big I could barely make it up the stairs. My knees felt like they were gonna give out. I was getting winded showering. At my heaviest i was 388.6 pounds. My dad died of a heart attack at age 51 and the way I was going it was gonna take a miracle to hit even that. I had actually made an appointment with my family Doctor to look into weight loss surgery. I canceled at the last minute and decided to give it one more go. Started swimming since it was the only thing i could do. I was too big for exercise bikes. Im now running again! Feb.24 was the day i decided to make a change. Today I saw this number staring back at me: 288.4. I've lost 100 pounds. I can't believe it. I'm not done yet though. My goal weight is 230 so I've got a ways to go but it'll come.

I can't believe I did it.

    Congratulations on your weight loss. What a major accomplishment. I have 40 pounds to lose and I'm counting on MFP to help me and keep me on track. I log ever bite I take.

    That's how I did and it really works.
