Happy to report that as of Saturday I'm down another 4 lbs! I've lost a total of 15 lbs since I started counting calories and sticking to my eating plan - all inside 36 days. It sounds like a lot at once, but honestly when you're as big as I am right now it's kind of a drop of rain out of the ocean. My last weigh-in was 324, my highest weight of all time was 390. It should feel like more of an accomplishment than it really does, but it's taken me just about 16 months to get this far.
On the upside, it's making my goal of getting under the 300 pound mark by the end of August feel a lot more reachable, knowing I've only got 24 pounds to go and I'm steadily losing.
