FAQs

This is a list of the most frequently asked questions I receive about my 125+ pound weight loss, 344 Pounds (this website!), and my personal life.

I just found this website.  What is it?

This website, 344Pounds.com, is a weight loss blog that I started in 2009.  The name is derived from my starting weight of 344.2 pounds.   It started innocently enough — I posted updates on my weight loss progress, talked about how I was losing weight, what I was eating, that kind of thing.  Eventually, the blog found a following.  After a few months, I had hundreds of people watching my journey.

By January of 2010, one year later, I had well over 50,000.

Today, the blog has well over 600+ blog posts and follows my entire journey as I lost 125+ pounds.  It’s been featured on CNN, CBS, Newsweek, and The Globe.

How did you lose weight?

I lost weight by counting calories, not by following a fad diet or gimmick.  I consider counting calories and practicing portion control to be the best way to lose weight.
