So I have now hit 6 months out. This morning, I weighed in at 279 pounds, which is 99 pounds from my top weight on Aug 1st. In my eyes, the changes on the tape measure are more substancial than that... here are those numbers.

For those of you keeping score at home, that is a total of 72" or 6 total feet!!! The exciting part is that I have a long way to go as well! For you who are considering this process, make sure you take lots of pictures and measurements before and regularly during your weightloss. You will be glad you did!
