    I have lost 170lbs over the last year,

    130 of that in the last 6 months. I had Gastric Bypass surgery in Sept 2013 and feel like a different person. I have more to go but I am enjoying it so far.

    I've been eating super healthy lately

    and I'm losing a good amount of weight. Two weeks ago I was about 238 and now I'm 229. Maybe if my laziness allows me to, I'll start working out too. :P

    A little over a year ago I lost 40 pounds

    and as of right now, I've kept it off. I did have a goal of losing 50 pounds total. I'm slowly reaching that goal. Just this morning. I put on my new, smaller jeans, and they are getting loose. What a good feeling when you're smaller jeans are getting too big for you.
