As I wrote about on here earlier this month, I’m trying to lose weight after years of being severely overweight.
Well, it’s been a week since I started trying to lose weight, and my effort to lose weight is working!
When I started trying to lose weight a week ago, I weighed in at 281.5lbs (127.69kg). As a result of my efforts to lose weight, which involves 45 minutes or so of exercise, usually in my small bedroom, daily and eating less food, I now weigh in at 274.6lbs (124.56kg). To put that another way, I’ve lost 6.9lbs (3.13kg) in one week! You can view the before and after photos of my tummy below.
There’s not a lot of visible difference between the before photo and the after photo, except for maybe a slight flattening of my tummy around my belly button. If I continue to lose weight over the next three weeks or so, I’ll provide updated tummy pictures three weeks from now or so.
I thank everyone who has encouraged me and praised me in my efforts to lose weight and become a fit person.
