    As of July 2, 2012. I'm now 330 lbs. I've lost 37 lbs. altogether since my highest weight in late 2009 was 367 lbs.

    I'm a sedative person. I control my calories, don't each much before I go to bed mostly. Sleep more than 7 hours mostly. What do you think about my weight loss?

    Now I can wear 18" neck 34" sleeve. Now my chest is 52" with 36" waist. I've got an Inverted V body.

    That's awesome that you've lost 37 pounds. How tall are you? Age? Do you have a target weight?

    I'm 6'1.5" (same height as ex-My Name is Earl/Memphis Beat star Jason Lee), and I'm 26 years old. I don't have a target weight yet.

    Good job on the weight loss. Unfortunately, at that weight, it's unlikely the correct pants size is as small as 36".

    I was just thinking that, I'm a 41" chest and 36" pants and thats overweight. You sure you didn't mean 46" pants? a "Normal" person is a bout 6" between chest and waist so your 16" is close to biologically impossible....

    Either way, real good work. Keeping weight of is 10% exercise and 90% attitude. No amount of running will help when you cave and eat two cheeseburgers per day.

    Congrats on the weight loss and all, and do keep it up, but gaining an inch in height at 26? Prove it.

    The OP probably wears his pants at his hips below his gut. We had a pretty large guy in our office who would boast about his 36" waist for this reason.

    Hi doughboy,
    Congratulations in losing 7 lbs and set realistic goals to lose more weight as obesity is one of the major factor for heart disease so follow balanced diet plan and workout daily to lose and stabilize your body weight. Break your meals in 5/6 small meals including snacks and prefer raw food over processed food. Increase your water intake, drink green tea avoid beverages, soda and even diet soda.

    According to recent research, water and green tea is the best way to lose your weight. I took 8 to 12 glasses of water gradually and 2 to 3 times cup of tea in a day. And now i feel much difference in my weight.
