I idled at 250 pounds for a little over a month. In the middle of June, I decided to join a gym and start eating right.
Since that time, I have used all 5 notches on the belt, and I've drilled 6 additional holes. I keep the belt around, and I call it my Fat Belt because it helps to remind me of the results I've obtained, and that I still have work to do. The days that I get to drill a new hole are always fantastic motivators.
I still have a long way to go. I'm getting there by hitting the gym at least 5 times a week, taking diet pills and vitamins on a daily basis, and by watching my diet.
My current weight is hovering around 220, and I estimate my target weight to be around 200. It's only a guess because my ultimate goal is to have a flat gut and firm man boobs.
The process sucks, but the phenomenal results are worth the effort. You just can't put a tangible value on physical fitness.
