Default Weight Loss

On January 7th 2017 I decided it was time to lose some weight. I was 270 at the time. Today marks the 18 month anniversary. I stepped on the scale this morning and weighed in at 185 pounds. Basically the only thing I gave up was soda's and sugar. I also walk a mile 3 days a week and do DDP Yoga every morning before work. I still eat whatever I want, but eat small portions.

The Before pic was Aug of 2016. After pic was taken this morning at work.

And for those wandering I was size XXXl and 44 waist before. I'm now XL and 35 waist

Well done! I wrestled heavyweight in High School. 205 lb. Between Jr year and sr year I went down to 155. Not easy, and 40 yrs later I still see myself as at 205.
