Default 50 pounds in 10 weeks

So far I've lost 50 pounds in about 10 weeks by completely changing my eating habits and dedicating myself to the gym as well as other physically active activities.

My biggest NSV to date is completing the couch to 5k program last week and being able to run a 5K on the treadmill without stopping.

I've still got 60 pounds to go before I hit my first goal and then I will reassess where I'm at, but i figured I'd post a progress pic to help keep me motivated.

Also, I'm 6'3 in case anybody was wondering.

oh my gosh, there's such a giant difference! Good job! Not only do you look thinner, you also look younger. Keep up the good work!

Big difference in your body- but really big difference in your face! I agree with Becca- you look younger, but you also look more self-assured. From these pictures it looks like you went from obese to chubby-fit, which is a great place to be!
