Default 70 lbs down, 1/3 way to goal

For obvious reasons, I'm not keen on having my picture taken, so there aren't many pics of me at my heaviest weight. I relocated in Nov. 2010 and the pictures in the grey sweater are from Dec. 2010 at around 290 lbs. I gained 25 more lbs (depression, stress) before I embarked on my current weightloss journey. The picture in the purple shirt was late May 2011, not quite at my heaviest of 315 in August 2011.

I lost 24 lbs between August 2011 and Jan. 2012 by making simple adjustments to my diet. I started following the IP protocol using alternatives Jan. 3rd 2012. As of last week, I've officially lost 70 lbs. in one year and I'm now back to what I weighed about 7 years ago. I have a long ways to go till goal, but seeing the progress in pictures is certainly encouraging.

Pic 1: 12/26/2010 (290 lbs)
Pic 2: 5/21/2012 (apprx. 300 lbs - highest weight was 315 in Aug. 2012)
Pic 3: Head Shot 8/26/2012 (245 lbs)
Pic 4: Before/After head shot (1/3 way to goal!)
Pic 5: Before/After full length (1/3 way to goal)
