I thought I would share a current picture. I hit my goal weight in November of 2006. My starting weight was 562.3 My lowest weight was 210. I have been at 225 for the last year. I am trying to get that 15 pounds back off.
Here is my current picture as of this morning before work.

I wish everyone the very best!

Charles - I'm new here, but I just wanted you to know that I had read your testimonial a couple of days ago and was so inspired by your story! As a matter of fact, I learned about myfooddiary.com by reading your story there and decided I liked their layout so I'm now a member there as well.

Every journey begins with a single step, as they say, and you are proof that no goal is too big to accomplish if you are willing to do what it takes to get there.

Thanks for sharing your story and pictures with us!

Wow, 3 years since you've reached your goal. You are such an inspiration to me! I reached my goal about a year ago, and I've kept it off since as well. It's hard sometimes, but just seeing that you could do it gives me hope that I will be able to maintain this too. Thank you so much for posting your stories and keeping us updated.:carrot:

Charles,

Your pics are "awe inspiring" and proof positive that if you want something to happen badly enough,..you can make it happen,..even when it seems almost impossible. Good luck to you on your last 15 lbs,..even though you already look great. You've not only done something really good for yourself,..but also indirectly for all of us trying to reach our goal weight,...and most importantly for your family, insuring that you will be much healthier and around alot longer to enjoy this wonderful life! Congratulations and God Bless you....

Adrianna

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to you and your family too! You have done an awesome job, and lost an awesome amount of weight. You look very healthy in your new picture; and I'm sure you feel much better too. We are learning that losing and maintaining both take a lot of hard work. May 2010 be a year of many victories for us all ... :flow1:
