Week 9: Weigh-in Results
It took me two decades to reach 300+ pounds and only 9 weeks to leave that scary, morbid place for good.
Mar 25 weight: 296.2

Jan 28 weight: 338.2
Starting weight (Jan 21): 344.2
6.4 pounds lost in the past 7 days, 47 pounds total in 9 weeks!
After my 4 week weigh-in I talked about how I knew I couldn’t sustain losing several pounds a week and how I’d be happy losing just 2 or 3 pounds on a regular basis — that’s why with each new weigh-in I’m shocked by the scale. I’ve moved 4, 5, 6, and 8 pounds each week over the past several weeks with absolutely no signs of slowing down or “plateauing.”
That being said, I still know that my drastic weight loss can’t go on forever; it’s just not mathematically possible. As I weigh less, my body uses less calories to perform the same exercises and daily activities. Thus, if my calorie intake stays the same (which it will) and hovers around the 1800-2,000 mark every day, I’ll have a calorie deficit that just keeps getting smaller.
Being under 300 is a major milestone — I can’t thank you guys enough.
