Ok hi. I'm Zero... Um, found this through a friend's lj and though meh, why not? Let's cut to the chase, shall we? I'm overweight. By a lot. By 60-70 pounds to be more precise. It's college weight, and I'm graduating next week, so it's time to put college and all of it's added poundage behind me. The size 14 jeans I had to buy in the fall are going in the trash. I'm currently studying to pass my CSCS exams, which stands for "Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist," and is a part of my athletic training (NOT PERSONAL TRAINING!!!!!!)degree. Essentially this means that I know quite a bit about working out and nutrition! (I just haven't chosen to apply it recently...) So yeah. In a week I will be putting together a workout plan and using http://www.mypyramidtracker.gov/
to analyze my diet and caloric expenditures. It's an excellent source, and if you guys aren't already using it I suggest you try it out!
hm.... guess thats about it!

Hi, I'm new. It seems like this place has been dead for quite sometime but, what the heck, might as well give it a try.
I have been trying to lose weight since.... ever really. My mom has had me on diets galore since I was 7 (or maybe earlier). Ya it doesn't help that I'm adopted and all we know of my family is that all the females were 6 feet tall and about 300 each.
I am 5'7.5 and 226lb. As mentioned above I have tried a bunch of diets, nothing giving me any success. Recently I have been eating healthily (salads and water) with regular exercise. And for the past 8 months of doing so I've stayed at the steady weight of 226 (save for the month of December when I had a stomach flu and threw up everything I ate if I ate anything at all, and I ended up weighing in at 216).
So, I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for me.
(And I was hoping to not have to resort to Alli or any crap like that.)
And mind you I'm not round so much as flabby and big boned...

New Guy Ahead!
Name's Rob and I just joined this community!
My reason for that is in hopes that maybe joining a fitness community will help me in my quest for weight loss. I am, as expected, overweight, by a lot. At the moment I don't have much money to follow a very good diet (we have a lot of chicken and chef boyardee in the house now), nor go to a gym to work out there.
Fortunately, I live on a mountain neighborhood. My wife and I go for walks around the neighborhood and that's all up and down hills, all around.
At the moment I've lost about 13 pounds just walking and doing some crunches and sit-ups every day (xept for one, which is our rest day).
Unfortunately we've both been sick for the past few days and haven't done anything, and I took a nasty fall too which hurt my right leg pretty bad, but we're planning on starting again tomorrow, Monday, even if it's slow at first.
Anyway, thanks for having me and have a nice day!
If y'all have any hints, tips or suggestions, please lemme know! ^-^ Oh, and if you just wanna plain chat, my contact info shall be posted below!

Yay! :D My weight has gone down to 82 kilos (180 lbs) as of this week! :D I started out at 97 kilos (213 lbs) over a year ago, and I want to get down to around to 60 kilos (132 lbs), so that's 22 left to go...But even if I get down to 65 kilos, I'll be happy. :) Gonna have a breast reduction too (sorry if that's TMI), which should take off another 3 or more kilos right there, and then when I'm down to my ideal weight (or as close as I can manage to get), I'll have a tummy reduction as well. My goal is not just to do this for better health, for lowering my risk of diabetes, and for making it easier for me to get around, but also to (hopefully) look halfway decent in a fursuit! :)

Went to the docs today and came to 228lbs.
|Monday, February 12th, 2007|
Im not really counting this as it was one of those 25 cent gas station scales. but it said I was 233lbs. Not really bad considering Ive not weighted since Tak went to work and I'm home alone most of the time. Last weigh in was the 2nd week of Sept. at 226lbs.

my weigh in this week
Well as I said last post that the place i'm working out in is keeping an eye on my weight so today they weighed me and I lost 5 lbs. I am happy that it is only 5 lbs since that means I upped my intake of veggies and good foods to the right anount for what I'm doing all day long five days a week.
I seem to have infected the rest of the people there with eating good food habbits and wanting to know how I'm loseing the weight so nicely. I will help them out and talk to them do too all bodies are different, just get them on track to knowing how to understand what goes in comes out .
255 lbs and counting down to 200.....or less lol Current Mood: crazy
I just did my exercises. I used my stepper for ten minutes while using my hand weights as well, then my peddle thingy for about 20 minutes while I was watching EastEnders. Apart from my throat, and my head being a bit icky, I feel good for having done my exercises.
Yay me!! Current Mood: accomplished

A dat late but tizz ok, I had to toss my home scale out the door this weekend. I found that it was broken and was stuck at 260 lbs. I found this out by being weighed in at the Work harding clinic I am in right now with there test day. I weight 272 lbs on Wed JAN 3. I weighed myself on there scale again on friday Jan 12 , And found I lost 12 lbs in a week of doing a workout all day long at this new place. I talked to the people there to see if this was ok.... They told me if i feel good and now rundown or sick then my body is good with the lose.
I do feel good but sore from working out 5 days in a row from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. A lot of the stuff I do is easy for me but the few things that make me feel hurt is the bending and lifting workouts they gave me in my program. This is the part that needs work for me to get back to work.
This new Program is six weeks long. If I keep working hard and lose weight like this every week... Man I will be a different horse when its all done.
Doing good and ready to keep going in the new week. I will post again at the end of each week with weight.

Two week update for Dec
It has been 2 weeks since my last weigh in ... well I did weigh myself lastweek aswell but kept it to myself. I lost 3 lbs last week and now I lost 7 lbs this week... I don't know how I did that, I have been on the go for the last few weeks and eating like mad aswell as workingout hard. I feel ok about it, alittle much for one week but if i don't feel ill about it .. I should be ok.
Total of 10 lbs and to top it all off I hit a BIG goal!
Goal lost over 100 lbs to date..... well 105 lbs to date now *DANCES*
Now I am 260 from 365, been a long road but there is still a little way to go!
Remember the light at the end of the tunnel may be you!

I saw the dietitian yesterday, and we went through the usual questions, has my diet changed any in the past three months, and yes it has. I dont have crisps (potato chips) as much as I used too. In fact I think in the last 3 months I have had 3 of those little snack bags.
My daily routine is:
Breakfast: Two slices of wholegrain bread, light cream cheese, diet cola, and pot of yogurt.
Lunch: Turkeyham on wholegrain bread, light mayo, cup of soup, and a cup fruit juice, and sometimes an apple for a snack.
Dinner: Varies, usually skinless, boneless chicken, oven chips (fries) and an apple for snack, sometimes have mac and cheese with sausages,
Weight: Sept 9th, 144kg/317lbs, however as of yesterday I weighed 142kg/313lbs.
The Dietitian was well impressed with the changes in my eating habits. She only suggested that I do more walking. There was some talk of putting me on a tablet which I cant remember what it is called, but it limits the amount fat that is absorbed by the body. I want to see how well I do without the tablets first, because I am enough of them as it is with my diabetes, depression, high-blood pressure and such. Current Mood: accomplished

Hello all, I've been lurking around here for a while and thought it is about time to say hi! I've not owned a scale for several years but have been dropping a quarter into the truckstop pay scales every 3 months or so, and am back down to 290 lb. fully clothed now and going to start exercising and working more directly on weightloss again so was wondering if anyone has anything they'd like to pass on in the way of "start up" ideas-tips-encouragement or whatever that they haven't already posted here.
Best of progress to you all-
