Yesterday, while starting a cut to try and hit 10% BF, I was looking for an app to help track my calories. I downloaded MFP and found something I wish I knew existed while I was losing weight.

I was fat for most of my life, coming to a point in 2010 where I decided I had enough and needed to change. I was 309 lbs. Through this 2 year process I developed healthy eating habits and became active. During this time I managed to lose 152 lbs.

I did nothing special, anyone can really do this. Just takes a little time and dedication. Being honest with yourself is key.

Congradulations on everything. We've lost the same in the same amount of time. Feel free to add me.

I was lucky enough to have MFP throughout this process and continue to use it daily as I still have more to go.

Thanks for sharing, it really does inspire peeps. :-)

Awesome job!!! I wish that I would have a before pic of my whole body for motivation...but, to be honest, I never would allow anyone to take any lol.

Anyhow, amazing transformation :)

I was the same way, I didn't have a large selection of pictures to chose from. I didn't have the foresight to take many before pictures because I didn't know I was really going to do it.

Yep!! Thats why my dog is my profile :) the ticker is my perfect jaw line from my high school senior pic. Mother nature is a whore!!

Much thanks everyone. I'm still not even close to where I want to be so I'm not satisfied yet.

After the first year, and it was a combination of things. I had eaten low calorie so long without a cheat day. Once I started eating more, I actually lost more weight. I also switched to HIIT instead of long cardio sessions. The rest was patience.

Once again, thank you all. My hope is that it motivates someone to start, or helps keep someone going who wants to quit.
