Current Progress In Losing Weight

My wife and I were looking over old photographs of us from the last few years, and we both were amazed at the changes in our appearances from then until now.  I promised my wife that I would not upload any images of her, even though I personally think that she is smoking hot, but I will upload a progression image of me, from right before surgery, until today, spanning four months progress so far.  I also am uploading an image of me at my all time heaviest, which was about 380 pounds, to give you an idea of what I looked like and the amount of weight I carried.

First the image of me, taken at about my heaviest weight, Christmas 2009:

Christmas 2009.  I am about 380 in this picture.

The next picture is a montage of me in three stages of weight loss: the far left was taken in April 2012, before I started losing weight and before my surgery.  The middle picture was taken two weeks after my surgery, on July 6 and the final picture on the right was taken in August (not sure of the date).  I apologize for the quality, but these were taken by my iPhone.

The next picture is the picture my wife took of me yesterday after my running of the Lost Dog 5K (October 7, 2012). 

October 7, 2012.  256.8 pounds.
And that is my progression so far in my weight loss.  The next two pictures show it all.

I still have a long way to go until I reach my goal of 180 or so and even that can be changed down some, but I look forward to that day.  I will say that I would never be where I am today in any fashion without the assistance and help, and pushing from my wife.  She is one of the guiding forces that has helped me come to this point in my life.  The other?  My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Without Him I would not be able to accomplish anything.

Thanks for reading and have a great rest of the day!
