For the first time in 18 years, I've seen a number starting with something less than a 3 on the scale. I broke 300 for the first time this morning, and I am so excited. That's 75 lbs. total lost for me, and another 75 or so to go. I played football in college at a solid 240 lbs., so I'm hoping that 225 is about the right spot for me now. This morning was 299.6.
Thanks to all on this board for the advice and encouragement.
