Default Photo Update - Almost 3 years after reaching my goal

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!

Here are a few before pictures...

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!
