    Losing weight is praised

    and even encouraged in our society. However, I've lost so much this summer that half of my wardrobe doesn't fit me anymore. I lost a total of 40 plus pounds guys. People have told me I look great, which puts a big smile on my face. To be honest, I don't feel as sexy as I use...

    Soooo..... I lost 182 lbs total.

    Now I'm 163. It feels awesome, but I hate having a bunch of loose skin. People are definitely nicer to me now, which is unfortunate when you think about it. I never realized how much discrimination I experienced when I was bigger until I got thinner.

    And it feels so good.

    It's the only thing (of myself) that I'm actually really proud of. I used to be the type of guy that sits in front of his computer for entire days/nights, consuming a lot of unhealthy snacks and fizzy beverages which led to overweight. At one point, I was starting to get tired...
