performance: gaining 0.7 lb a week

I am a 32 year old software architect in Seattle, WA (although originally from a small farming community in rural Ontario, Canada). Been overweight for most of my life except for a short period of time when I lived in Thailand for a year and managed to unintentionally lose something like 70lbs. I have been holding steady at 29x for the last few years, but recently my weight jumped up into the 300s and I decided it was time to do something about it.

I am starting with a pretty basic low-carb diet and will add in some exercise along the way. My first goal was to reach 250lbs by December 1st (which I hit on October 27, 2001). My second goal was to hit 220lbs by February 14th, 2012 (which I hit on January 3rd, 2012). My next goal was to hit 200lbs by the end of March (which I hit on February 29th, 2012lbs). Next my goal was to continue to slowly lose another 30lbs to reach a final weight of 170lbs which I hit on May 30, 2012).

My current (and hardest) goal is to maintain this weight for the rest of my life. But I have developed some good habits along the way -- and with a bit of luck and support from my loved ones I am sure I can do it!

Milestones:
August 17, 2011 - 25lbs lost
October 14, 2011 - 50lbs lost
December 08, 2011 - 75lbs lost
February 07, 2012 - 100lbs lost
April 22, 2012 - 125lbs lost
May 30, 2012 - 136lbs lost

Before and After, anyone?
I have been watching this thread for a bit over a year now -- I remember seeing a photo of kingkeld and thinking “wow – that can’t be the same person!” I have drawn tons of inspiration from him and many of the other posters here and just wanted to say thanks! One year, one month later I am ready to share by ‘before and after’ – 146lbs lost:



Be Happy!
