Would 40lbs really be that noticable on someone his size though. I mean, yes, it's a great acomplishment but with someone that size you drop the pounds and you're left with flab that still needs to be firmed up. I know when I went from 200 to 150 the first 20lbs or so that I lost wasn't very noticable. I stayed in the same pant size and everything. I don't know where those 20lbs came off of but I didn't go down a pant size until I got to about 170.
