Weight Loss

So back in November at my peak i think I weight 284 lbs. Started a new job as a vendor which whooped me into shape. Fortunately I found a picture of myself last summer and it got me to do a comparison shot of myself now (compared to then).

Nothing really fancy with my diet, but I did learn to control my portions (at least 5 days of the week, I still indulge on the weekends for my sanity). As for exercise, I get it all on the job which helps because I am one lazy sob when I get home.

Here is my pic(s). Anyone else have a weight loss story? All of the feedback I've gotten elsewhere has inspired me even more. Hopefully those of you here, can keep it up if you're working on losing weight as well!

You look great!!!! Keep up the hard work.

I am down 60 lbs from August 2012 until now.

I cut out heavy starches, sugars, I eat plenty of proteins and vegetables, workout cardio for 3x a week for about one hour sessions and twice a week I do lite weight training. I stopped using the elevator at the hospital.

Awesome man, lookin' great. Unfortunately my eating habits only changed from the "amount" perspective, but I know soon I want to move into less sugar and more fresh vegetables. I eat plenty of vegetables now but they aren't fresh.

I need to do something. I'm really just not motivated enough to make the necessary wholesale changes I need to make.

I'm either all in or all out... right now I'm all in... Completely addicted to going to the gym every day. If I get out for more than 5 days or so, it's hard to get back in it...

Just got to make the decision to do it and do it. My wife finally got her poo together and has been doing weight watchers for three weeks... so far she's lost 2 pounds a week and is down 6. Now she's motivated to stick with it... she only wants to lose like 20 so it's def doable.

I'm happy with my weight, but would like to lose more around my gut, which is the hardest part... more cardio!

gut gut and gut!!!

I need a little bouncy "girl friend" to get and keep me motivated.

she can make all sorts of promises and break each one of them...but that's how shallow I am. That would be enough to motivate me for at least a few months and a couple of pounds!!!

No carb diet started last week to lose the weight I gained over spring break.

Lost around 5 lbs the first week (cheated all weekend), and I'm doing it again this week at least. Used it to lose a lottt of weight in high school and although I'm essentially happy at my current weight, I would like to lose around 10 more lbs.

I thought to add... I use the Alli pill as well, its not a miracle weight loss drug but it helps block some of the fat from my meals as well.
