Hurray! :D

It's been 5 years last month since I lost 200lbs and have been keeping it off ever since. Hope you do too! ^_^

Lol I'm 6'3", and have no idea what my weight should be. Besides it also has to do with your frame, I have a pretty big frame so my weight is supposed to be a little higher. For a while my family called me "ghandi" I was so thin and frail. But I put on some muscle and now just need to tighten some unsightly skin.

Some advice though don't let image consume you, I've struggle with self image all my life and it has only been in detriment to my self esteem.
