It happened yesterday morning, but I wasn't able to post about it till today and there was even a lower weight this morning :).

As of yesterday, I am half the man I used to be! I started this thing in the fall of 2007 and with many ups and downs I have lost more weight than I currently weigh. I went from 446.8 pounds to 222.2 pounds. My total loss is 224.6 pounds and I have a bit more than 20 pounds till I hit my goal weight.

Thank you 3FCs and this wonderful community for accepting this random rooster into your life. ;)

Congratulations!! That is an amazing accomplishment. I think it is awesome that you kept going even through the hard times. So many people take the easy way out and quit when the going gets tough.

No yard full of chicks is complete without a few random roosters!!

CONGRATULATIONS! I know the feeling of reaching that milestone, as it happened to me not too long ago. The thought of losing half of myself put things in a different perspective. I am so happy for you, and I wish you all the best for these last few lbs. Great job!

I could just about cry for you. :D What an amazing thing you have accomplished. The thing that amazes me the most is not how much you've lost, but how long you've stuck with it. So, so, so many people give up long before. You did it, Matt. YOU did this!

Thanks everyone!

So many of you have been an inspiration to me and kept me going even when things weren't going that great. Its been a long time and the road hasn't always headed in the right direction, but eventually I'll get to where I'm going.

HOLY FREAKIN FREAKIN FREAK!!! lol that's flippin' amazing dude!!!!!

on a side note, don't you wish you could have a guy made out of all the weight you lost, looks just like you

I just imagined a guy shaped like Matt, looks like Matt but is just a puddle of ex-Matt fat. A man shaped blob-o-stuff on the floor.


Back on Topic....Congrats to you, Matt. You continue to amaze me!! :hug:
