Default Finally Hit the 10% Milestone (37Lbs)! With Pics!

I am so ridiculously proud of myself today, because I finally hit that mythical 10% of my total body weight lost that doctors always say helps reduce your risk of myriad health problems. I would love to get my blood sugar and cholesterol checked again now.

As you can see by my join date (2007) I've been hanging around here for a LONG time. However, you'll also notice that I don't have many posts to my name; I've always tried to do this thing by myself. Now I'm trying to reach out more, build a support network.

What I've been doing to lose weight is simple. For the first month (November) I slowly eliminated sweets and junk food from my diet in phases. Going into December, I began counting calories through MyFitnessPal and walking several times a week. Finally I drastically cut down my diet soda consumption and began drinking tons of water. Then, viola, weight loss.

I don't have any pics of me at my highest weight (366 lbs or possibly higher; I didn't weigh myself for MONTHS) but here's me at about 355 in April:





And here's me today at 329:



With my size 30 jeans that are now too big:



OBVIOUSLY, I have a long, long way to go still. Like, another 164 pounds to go - almost half my body weight. But I feel like I'm making real progress here, you know?

Congratulations!

I have been struggling to lose 10% and I really appreciate you posting this thread. I'm inspired by your success and by the photo of you with your old jeans. It must feel great to see the transformation through clothing. I can't wait!

Keep up the good work and keep us posted!
