My friends and family are tired of hearing me, so I'll bug you guys instead:

In the last year:

Net weight loss: ~40lbs (@ 237 from ~275)
Body fat percent loss: ~15-20% (to ~25% from ~45%)
Waist: Down to 38 from 42-44
Belly;down to 46 from ~56
Blood pressure: 130/70 (from 145/85) -- all reduction from better eating/exercise, no meds/etc.
Resting heart rate: 64 (from 76)

I even got lazy/stopped dieting for a few months --so even though it's a year's worth and therefore not particularly great result compared to a lot of folks around here, I'm proud of myself.

I'm fully back on the wagon now and have lost 3-4 lbs in the last two weeks, yay!

My favorite stats are those medical ones (for lack of a better word): blood pressure, blood sugar, A1C, choloesterol, even resting heart rate. These things mean more to me than pants size or body fat percentage or weight (though those are exciting, too.)

Congratulations to you. Ultreya! Keep on keepin' on!

first post - a little bit about my background
Growing up with judgmental family members, always being compared to my sister, my family making fun of me and giving me nicknames, plants the worst possible seed in my mind. That looks body image and ...

I'm curious?. You posted this on 9/20. How many calories for maintenance did you use? Have you gained any pounds? If so, how many? The reason for questions? - see my post on 10/16
