On the left is me today at 167lbs and 6’2”. On the right is me December 2010 at ~285lbs and 6’1”. Went from a size 46 in pants to a 32 or 34. Shirt size XXL or XXXL to a M or L. It took me about 2 years to get down to 185lbs and not until about a month and half ago I started my diet regime to get from 185 to 167.
I can confidently say that when I saw this picture of me with my cousins (on the right, they were cropped out obviously), my weight problems were really put into perspective. That New Year’s Day (2011), I made the same resolution as I had done multiple times before. This time, I was determined. I am so happy of how far I’ve come and how much farther I could go.
