Since starting our diet in late February my son is down 31 lbs., I have lost 21.5 lbs., and my wife is down 18 lbs. My wife of course is a runner so she wasn't really out that out of shape anyway but she decided since I was going on the diet she would also. She is back to less than she weighed before having my son 19 years ago. I still have a long way to go but losing what I have lost is inspiring enough to keep going. We all also feel much better eating healthier foods, heck even my 16 year old daughter is eating better which is something we always fought with her about. She doesn't however need to lose weight she is only 102lbs. Summer is making it more challenging as being outside doing things makes it hard to eat every 3 hours to keep the metabolism fired up and in the summer I could care less about eating I just want water or lemonade all the time.

Nice work. Do you need to have your wedding ring re-sized?

Keep kicking ass Sandals, bigb, farva, kerryann, mikey, etc.

Just think, everytime you buy new clothes, that's just 5 more years of retirement money you have to save too since you're gonna live longer too!

I'm about 318 now even lifting weights and watching what I ate for the most part I couldnt get under 300 lbs unless I did a strict Atkins diet then the weight came off fast and the gain faster when adding sugar back in. As Americans we have way too much temptation and bad food choices and high fructose corn syrup in just about everything! Have to try to eat whole grains and limit simple sugars.

I feel for the most part our body weight is like a thermostat and will creep to a weight and stick there and losing weight fast is like starving so ur body adapts and it is hard to drop wright after the first 20-30 lbs or so.

Keeping weight in check is very tough for many people me included. We can look at food and gain weight! :what:

Over the past year and a half I have been working to get my weight down below 200lbs. On Jan 1st 2012 I weighed 237.6lbs and finally this morning, 6/14/2013, I was down to 199.6 lbs. It has been at least 13 years since I was below 200lbs! I... haven't done any crazy diets, taken any magic weightloss pill or signed up for the latest workout program... Just watching how much I eat and trying to stay more active. Training for my first Triathlon has speed up the weight loss in the past few months, but overall it has been slow and steady.

nuthin' but a bunch of fat fukcs on this site!!!!
me included...you a$$hats have motivated me to shed some lbs now.
I stepped on my scale said 293 (it's 8 lbs light, but good to use as reference)..i nearly sh!t my pants. i'm the biggest i've ever been and everything hurts...my knees, my legs, my back, my front...

in the last 4 yrs i've had 2 back surgeries and broken my pelvis and got a new job.
i leave for work from 6a and get home at 8p pretty much daily, have re-established horrible eating habits (taco bell 3x a week for lunch), wolf down my dinner at 9p, then sit in a recliner for an hour then go to bed....i've picked up 65 lbs in the last 3 yrs...i',m afraid to know my blood pressure and i'm pretty sure my cholesterol level is 100%

but i still ride mx bikes a couple of times a month (mostly trail riding), i like to hunt and fish and i'd like to see my pecker again

i'm down 10# to 283 (or 291, remember my scale is just a reference)
i need ot see 200....i'm gonna do it with the rest of you fat bastards

keep up the good work and i'm gonna try like hell to do the same
