Update: The lifestyle change is going well, almost 5 months in and I am down to a size 50 pant from 60 and size 3x shirt down from 6x. I will update again in January when I do my first weigh in.
Update: 12/27/13. Got a smart scale for Christmas and could not resist the urge to weigh myself. I am proud to be down to 335 from 450!
Update : 2/8/2014 Things are going great, down to 306 ( so close to that 300 mark!) Wearing size 44 pants and 2x shirts!
Update : 3/2/2014 Down to 292! Still in 44 pants and solely 2x shirts. I threw out all of my old 5-6x shirts and 60 pants! The journey is going great, just wish I had somebody to share it with!
