The official day when I began reducing food intake was May 1st, 2020. I figured it would be easy to remember being a Communist Holy Day and they specialized in starving people and all that.

And after 2 years, here is where I stand:

I cropped the pic to avoid the “you need a pedicure!” jokes.

190 pounds gone.

Yeah, I am pretty proud of my weight loss.  I am done actively trying to lose anymore, but just stay between 210 and 215 depending on the season of eating. (Trying to lose weight in cold weather is next to impossible! Your body is like I WANT BISCUITS, SAUSAGE AND HOT CHOCOLATE! STAT!) and I have to by pants again which is becoming annoying even if I carry IWB.

And yes, I am gonna pig out (once) in celebration and take the missus for honest to God BBQ next weekend.  Any recommendations in the Murfreesboro area?

UPDATE: I found a “Before” pic. As soon as I can get the missus to take a pic of the “After” version of me, I’ll post both.

    1. The Slick Pig BBQ. It’s next to MTSU. Well done on losing the weight sir.

  1. You’re only half the man you used to be. Good work!

    Been there, done that. Peaked at 450 lbs. Current weight 180 lbs. Your back and joints will thank you for it, although you will have a certain amount of residual wear and tear on them from the heavier times.

    Just be sure that you don’t relapse into bad eating habits and gain it back. A lot of people do that.

    1. Congratulations! May I ask if you followed any particular diet plan or if you just used self-control/portion control?

      I’ve been fighting for years and keep going back to old habits. Considering surgery, but really don’t want to go that route.

      Thank you.

  2. What did you do with the body that you “lost”? 190 pounds was a hefty body to hide, just saying. 😉

    1. Reduced calory intake. Measured everything I ate and found ways to enhance flavor to fool the mouth. I used the Noom app to keep track.
      And took it very very slow and patient.

  3. Whitt’s. Also, across from Toots on Broad there is a BBQ place in the gas station.
