Hey Bartee, I'm on a life change too, I'm not working out, yet, as I'm too heavy right now to do so, but I have lost 4 Kg, nearly 9 pounds.
The sad thing is, I have a LOT more to go, but slowly but surely, I must do it.
You can see in my sig line, it says 126 -4, that is my weight now, 126 Kg and that I've lost 4 Kg, so yeah, I was 130 KG when I started, that is darn near 290 pounds. I want to get down to 90 Kg, just under 200 pounds.
I've cut way back on the caffeine, only one cup in the AM when I get up, and way, WAY back on the carbs, eating a lot less on the whole.
Great job on the 40 pounds, that is a lot less weight to be hauling around.
