It's been about 6-7 weeks now since I started some lifestyle modifications to shed some excess poundage. Before actively starting to do anything about it, I remember tipping the scales at approximately 267 lbs. Today when I stepped on the scale I was 243.5. So I lost about 23.5 lbs. Next stop is 240 or better. I'm also really digging that shirts that I was once too big to wear, now fit, and that my pants are falling down. Yes, I'm sharing this with people here because I don't have much of a support group here at home, but also as inspiration to others that are also struggling with weight issues. If I can do it, then anyone can.
