170 pounds in 16 months (figured i'd start a new thread)
 
I have another testimonial thread that I posted when I lost my first hundred but I figured this milestone deserved its own thread.

Starting weight: 340.8
"Now" weight: 170.2

Wow - that's all I can muster. Good for you! What you've accomplished is awesome. I love that once you reached your weight goal, you said "ok, now I'm going to up the calories and get stronger" where I think the natural reaction would be to take a break.

Tomorrow I'm going to show your video to my coworker. He is about 340 lbs and i have been trying to get him in to crossfit. Hopefully this helps him make that move!

Congratulations on your newest milestone and all that preceded it. I have things I have never admitted from when I was a smoker (quit in 2011). It takes a lot of courage to admit our darkest moments. Thanks for sharing and wishing you all the best moving forward.

Massive congrats Jeremy! And crazy stuff, I live 5 minutes from Gtown.

I'll be showing your video to my buddy as well. Trying to get him inspired a bit as he's in the same boat as you once were. Thanks for sharing and keep up the good work!

This is very impressive--congrats. I started at roughly the same weight and am down 40. I think it's time to dial in the nutritional side of things even further. I'm curious what you mean by mostly paleo? What has your nutritional intake looked like throughout all this loss?
