As for the still running weightloss challenge between the lovely and talented Alex "formerly BIG Toon" Deligiannis and I, I saw him last friday and he was looking pretty svelt. But I am doing my best to keep up with him. At the start of our competition, I weighed in at 292lbs and as of the last time I weighed myself I was 238lbs. When we first started our competition, the pants I wore on the night of the weigh in were size 58 and last week I bought a new pair of pants that are size 48 and they're already starting to get a little loose. I went from wearing size 3-4XL t-shirts to currently XXL. Don't get me wrong, I'm still very overweight and have a long way to go, but I am starting to see results in the clothes that I wear and I think this competition has a been a good thing for both Alex and I. I don't know about him but I very much want to keep going, even after our competition ends in September. Maybe a sequel? Though I have reached the point where my weightloss has slowed and I need to start readjusting my exercise routine and diet, I unfortunately don't fit into any of my old clothes so I've had to start digging deep in my closet, as you can tell by the picture below.
