Here I am at my start a few years ago in the vicinity of 240 lbs. and more recently on the day I dropped under 200 lbs.I have other pictures, but let’s stick with these for now. A big change is that I don’t have a fat face anymore. I hated looking at pictures and seeing myself with a spreading neck. It is vain on some level to critique your little faults and try and improve them, but a great positive feedback that I get is when people compliment me and notice a change. If you can eat a little better and become active right away, then people will notice a glow about you and will comment within the first couple of weeks.
