This thread is awesome. Fantastic work, Moses.
A few years ago I'd reached 224 pounds which felt very uncomfortable to me and affected a bunch of different aspects of my life. After eating sensibly and starting a fairly basic exercise routine, got down to my broadly ideal weight of 182 pounds. I could still do with losing anoth 10-15 pounds, but it's those last few that are hardest to shed. If you're heavily overweight, a simple change of diet and adoption of a light exercise regime will show big results in a short space of time (as you're already seeing).
Anyway, you're doing an awesome job. Keep going at it and keep us all informed.
