Sir Valddy update plus new progress thread
When I started out on this journey I weighed 334.6 (June~ of last year), today I weighed in at 259.2, so thats a total of 75.4lbs! My goal is to get down to 220, so I still have a ways to go (39.2lbs). The summer between my 8th grade and 9th grade year of school when I got my physical for football I weighed 272.2lbs, and I was only 6'0" tall, now I'm 6'3". So we are talking about June~ of 2008 I weighed 272lbs while being only 6'0" tall. When I was at 334 my size 42 pants were becoming hard to button, and my XXL shirts were too tight for me to wear so I would have to stretch them out. I recently got a couple new shorts/shirts, a size 38 pant and XL shirt fit comfortably, im probably pretty close to being able to fit a 36 as well.
There isn't much of a difference in the 271/259 pictures, but I see a difference in like the overhang of my stomach. Looking at the 334 picture is gross but then comparing it to the current picture is just crazy.
I saw my grandma the other day and my dad said something like look how skinny he is, and then he said something like he needs to stop losing weight or else im going to have to buy him new clothes. So my grandma said dont worry I will buy you new clothes. Then later she said it again so I said give me a couple of months. So then when I was leaving she said call me in a couple of months and I will buy you a new wardrobe. So thats just a little bit more motivation.
My goal is to be done losing weight by Thanksgiving so thats roughly 3 months away. So if I can lose 13lbs a month I would be happy.
