Beginning in 2004, my weight increased from 220 to 250. I wasn't pigging out, just eating a bit too much.
Last year I decided I needed to lose some weight. I don't starve myself. Just holding back on the snacks and forgoing that extra helping. Today I'm 242.5 lbs.
Not anything to be particularly proud of, but the direction and trend are correct.
If I keep this up, I'll be back in 36 inch waist jeans by 2020. And I'll be able to wear XL clothes, instead of XXL.
