Believe it! It took me 20 months! I use to be 250 pounds, XXl-XXXL shirt, 42 and up pants, Now I am 150 pounds, and wear a small shirt and a 30 waist! I starved a lot, it sucked, but I was desperate and tired of being made fun of! Ate tons of healthy foods, did so much cardio, I was doing 56 miles a week rollerblading and don't forget about the running I did too lol! Any ways, the best think I have ever done with my self! I did it all by my self, I had no support, no suppliments, NOTHING!! HARD WORK!! This is me now, I need to get my before picture back from the gym because they are going to post it on their website under RESULTS!
