How are you achieving the weight loss?

Diet, exercise, both?

I've been eating less, small portions my friend. Didn't eat hours before I go to bed. Three meals a day!

The best advice I can give you? Cut out all soda/ sugary juices and replace with zero calorie options (preferably water or flavored sparkling water).

You will notice pounds melt away pretty quickly

congrats! keep up the good work. if you actually start exercising regularly, and maintain a healthy diet, i'm sure you can skim down to the sub 300 lbs. range in no time.

Well I've went to the doctor today because of a earache, long story. But good news, I've lost 2 lbs. Now all together I've lost 33 lbs. since my highest weight years ago of 367 lbs. I'm now 334 lbs.

An UPDATE: My mother bought me a measuring tape for clothing at Wal-Mart this past weekend. I've measured myself. Did a little improvisation, I pretend the measuring tape is the shirt collar, and I measured it on my Adam's apple (which is the right way). I've put my finger under it. It I put more than two fingers under it and it's snugly, it fits. If I put more than two fingers under it and not snugly, it's too big. Since I control the calories and not eating hours before I go to sleep.

I measured myself. Here's the results. Neck size: 17' 1/2" (I was that size around 1998), Chest: around 54". Waist: around 56". BTW, my mother measured my sleeve length: 34" inches.

The problem, the waist is bigger than my chest.

What do you think about it? Am I doing good on my weight loss?

if you're losing, then yeah it's going well. but I'm not going to lie, slimming down from 300+ lbs to wherever it is you want to end up will be a long road, but you can absolutely do it. just stay consistent and watch the inches come off your waist.
