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...
I weighed 146kg/ 321lbs today I am 121.3kgs/267lbs.
It's a long road, but I am getting there.
Before my gastric bypass on April 8, 2008, I weighed 23 stone/150.8kg as of May 21st I have lost 3 stone and 6 inches off my hips.
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! :)
I went from a size 26 jeans to a size 20. Ive not been a size 20 in like 12yrs. I dont wear jeans in the summer, just stretchy shorts. I knew they were getting to big but WOW!!
New to the group here.
I'm kind of a big guy and trying to lose weight. Going to start taking martial arts and stuff, but looking for a group for some tips, advice and support.
Went to the docs today and came to 228lbs.
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.
