I wanted to post a new picture - I lost 355 pounds over the laat 4 years and 3 weeks ago I had a lower body lift to remove the loose skin I had. I cannot believe how good it looks and it is still healing!!!

I wish everyone the very best and if I can ever help anyone - please let me know.

Here is the link to my before and during photos as well...

You truly are an inspiration. Today is the beginning of my new life. I am at 400 lbs or so (not really sure) and I am determined to make a change. I have no knowledge about calories, counting percentages, or protien foods. I don't have any idea how this is going to happen, but after reading your story (thru all my tears!) I am ready to do this. I want to be as successful as you. Congratulations on your weight loss and THANK YOU for giving me hope.

I loved your story. I read the whole interview from myfooddiary.com. I looked through your pictures and the whole story radiates success. I had tears in my eyes by the end.

You're right, I do have willingness. When my lack of willpower makes me feel weak, I just have to remember that I was, am and will continue to be willing to stick to my healthy lifestyle!

Thank you. :)

I remember when my dad lost a lot of weight. It was so exciting to have him go to the pool with me and play basketball... Your daughter must be just as excited as you are. :]

Great work Charles.

I'm down 55 and probably have another 40 at least before I reach Goal. 220 has just been a LONG time goal so I want to get that first.

Anyhow I think I have good skin, am losing at a not too fast pace, exercising, drinking water.

So I thought I would never need any skin removed. But I has a huge belly and well not sure now.

I read in weigh loss surgery forum, get to goal weight, maintain at least 6 months, then think about it. Sounds like good advice.

Congrats on your Amazing achievement.
