I just weighed in this morning and down three lbs. since last time on scale. Started at 230lbs. and now 210lbs. So twenty pounds lost in 2-1/2 months with 20lbs more to go. Yesterday I walked seven miles in two hours and averaging 40 miles a month walking every other day. Can't expect results overnight. Be patient and you'll eventually get there.
Well I'm 29 years old and was close to the 300 lb. mark several years ago...Last summer, I was at 255 and decided to join a gym. Although I dropped weight over the next few months, I never really devoted myself to it.
So, I started out 2010 at 230 lbs. and really decided to concentrate on my health a few weeks ago. I have been walking between 4 and 5 miles on the treadmill most days, along with hitting the other machines at the gym...My eating habits have also improved a ton...A couple of days ago, I weighed in at 218 lbs, which is the least I've weighed in 15 years or so...My 30th birthday is in June (although I refuse to grow up) and my goal is to be well under 200 by then! That's exciting, because it wasn't long ago that I never expected to be under 200 again.
I'm glad I found this thread, good to know I'm not alone lol.
Sick as a dog with the flu for the past five days and lost another 5lbs without even trying. 205 on the scale this morning with 15 more to go!
when i go to the gym they refuse to give me a membership.
chest 30 waist 28 blood pressure 161 over 68
i still cant find a decent pair of jeans
instead they send me to the nearest restaurant.
the secret to staying slim is less calories in the night. eat healthy breakfast, mega lunch and light stuff for supper more juice.less starch.more veggies.
if u exercise the same routine every day your body will get use to it.and you wont lose any weight after a while. rotate exercise. best vitamin; vitamin s
Good work you guys! I'm back down to 145.
I had to show a new recruit how TKD is fought the other day. He thought since he was 40 pounds heavier than me (and 20 years younger) and trained in "several" martial arts ()that he could clobber me. Apparently I gave him several bruises through his protective chest pad and a new respect for little old people. The point....keep fit..... it's a heck of a lotta fun.

About the time this tread started I weighed 235 lb I weigh 205 now. I need to lose more for medical reasons. It's hard to lose weight even when health is an incentive.
It is nice to compete for weight loss. I took a bet with a fellow employee once and won by a long ways. I found that plateaus are a result of not getting enough minerals to meet daily requirements. When on a diet, it easy to overlook daily requirements.

I never started this when y'all did, but I'm down 26LBS in 4 weeks and need to lose 40-50 more . . .
High protein, low Carbs . . . And gave up everything I love !
09-26-2010, 02:10 PM
since rep posted, and said high protien, low carb..........i need to add to this.
as a 19 year lacto-ovo vegetarian, till april of 2009, i can agree that carbs do have a effect of your weight gain. as you body ages, metabolism slows and get used to carb high diets, you can add pounds easily and without realizing it.
carbs, have 2 basic types, COMPLEX & SIMPLE. the fast food, frozen, quick meals in a box, ARE MOSTLY SIMPLE CARBS.all of those get turned into sugars, the body uses what it needs and STORES THE REST AS FAT.
COMPLEX CARBS, are green vegetables, any and all, broccoli, lettuce, cabbage,peas, grean beans, bok choy, etc. these are all great foods for losing weight.
as of april 2009, my cardiologist told me to start eating PROTEIN BASED FOODS. meat!!!
i started out at 293, and in 2 months was 269. but eating a 1/2 a chicken at a meal, has the same effect as eating CARBS..........so i started to regain pounds. went back up to 280. since then i have decided that i eat WAY TO MUCH, and i cut down or as the old saying goes......"push away from the table." that has made a big improvement.
now, since i was a VEGETARIAN for all those years, i still dont eat beef or want to.
lot of fish, chicken, turkey & a little pork. BUT.........i also eat mainly a big SALAD, with romain/iceburg, tomatoes, cukes, shrooms, some cheddar cheese and some bread crumbs(or a few smashed crutons) this makes my main meal, with a little fish or chicken on the side.
prior to this change my blood sugar was 130, now its 107. iam dropping weight, slowly, about the same speed i PUT IT ON. this is what you want to do.

well, i was quite alarmed to realize at the beginning of the month, I gained a whopping 20 lbs of my 65 lb original weight loss back. I knew I needed to get back to and did. I wasn't done losing at the 65, so, 13 out of the 20 back to the good... whew! very proud of myself for catching it and getting it back under control instead of gaining it all back like in the past, so many times.
09-26-2010, 08:06 PM
DIET...........is not the answer or the fixall. you need to make PERMANENT the dietary changes and stay with them. as i have said, i make most of meals a salad, if not that then a good portion of some other green leafy vegetable.......and my PROTEIN(meat) is an addition to or with that.
good wonderful dinner: STEAMED BABY BOK CHOY, WITH PORTABELLO SHROOMS IN A BROWN ORIENTAL SAUCE!!!!!!!!!!

starting a new phenomenal program (hopefully Monday)! Can't wait! Lost 65 lbs on my own and it's been a really long time since I've lost anything else. It is harder after 40!!! Anyway, I kept it off but I'm hoping this is the boost I need :D
03-11-2011, 05:33 PM
Well, I think it's about time I piped in here! Some of you have likely seen our posts (my wife & I) on Facebook, but others would not have!
Wendy & I started to change our lives for the better in November last year (just a short 4 months ago!). We have tried every weight loss program out there and failed. We "tried" eating good and "exercising"... and failed! I peaked out at 302lbs and ENOUGH WAS ENOUGH! It was either fate or a Godsend (depending on your beliefs), but one Saturday late in October last year, we "stumbled" upon a Franchise show here in Calgary. What we found in that show has changed our lives and is literally turning us into new people!
As of this morning, I have released 51 lbs. and lost 43.5" of body. Wendy has released 36 lbs. and lost 37.75"! I feel like a brand new man lately, and I can't begin to explain just how great I feel lately. Just imagine carrying around a 50lb. sack of potatoes on your back for a day... or even an hour... then imagine the relief when you finally put it down.
The funny thing is that the program we're doing is not even a weight loss program! It is a full body nutritional cleansing and fat burning program, and weight loss is just one of the many wonderful "side effects" of doing this! My mind is clearer, I have a ton more energy, I don't get tired nearly as easy, my mood has dramatically changed, and people tell me I have life and sparkle in my eyes like never before. I am no longer a slave to junk food and diet pop... hallelujah!
Anyhow, I thought this was the appropriate thread to share this news in. I still have 40 or 50 more lbs. to go before I hit my goal weight, but the train has left the station and it's well on it's way!!!
Here's a head shot from 18 months ago... and here is one after releasing 40lbs. It's just gonna get better! I'm pretty sure you'll figure out which is which!
03-11-2011, 05:47 PM
Tim that is fantastic.
Good for the both of you!
03-11-2011, 06:31 PM
Thanks Jill! I just can't decide if I like the hairless look or the aging, (mature) receding hairline look!
09-23-2011, 02:21 PM
well.... I'm 6'1", and I've been between 160 and 175 since high school 10 years ago. Tried my damndest to put some pounds on, just can't do it. Stupid metabolism!
Good luck to those that now hate me ;)
09-23-2011, 02:26 PM
Time to update.... After being stuck in the 215-225 range for the last year or so I hit 193 this morning. The least I've weighed since I was in 8th grade.

Good for you Tony.
Still 5'8" and 148 lbs. Good fighting weight for me. Still train 3 nights a week, lift weights in between. Started doing 50 situps every night about 2 months ago. Use it or lose it.
09-23-2011, 03:19 PM
5'10" 135 here...wrestled all my life. About a year and a half ago I was consistently going to the gym every day and was up to about 150 solid on weight gainers...not anymore lol
