Default Haven't seen this in a while!!

5 weeks ago I started dieting and weighed 250

This morning for the first time in probably 6 or 7 years the scale was in the two-twenties ... Gotta decide where I'm gonna stop, seeing results gets addicting, and I'm catching myself only wanting to lose more

Thanks guys! I'm 6'2" and I've always weighed more than I looked .. I graduated HS at 205 and I was thin, I'm thinkin if in drop down to 210 or 205 I would just try to maintain that weight, I'm afraid anything more will just be too much

Started a low carb diet 3 weeks ago and I went from 283 to 269. I am 5'11" so I would like to get down to 200 or less.

If you look at it as a change in diet, rather than going on a diet you will see great results, and have no problem maintaining.

I changed my diet and stuck to it, I'm down from 220 to 183 and have no problem maintaining, I still go crazy here and there though.

Nothing tastes as good as being fit and healthy feels! And your adding years to your life, as well as making the ones from here on out more valuable and enjoyable...

That's awesome. I'm working on dropping a few myself. Im about 235 trying to get back around 200. Gave up cigarettes at the same time so it's even tougher to shed the weight.

I've dropped down to around 210 from 225-230. Just by changing my diet. I might start exercising once the weather cools down some

I dropped cokes and all fried food .. We subbed turkey for beef, alot of chicken and fish, and just avoid the things you know are bad. Watch for foods loaded with carbs, especially if the have a small amount of protein that's a bad combo, and cut your portions. I also pick one day every 2 weeks to drink alcohol (Bacardi and diet coke) and I don't drink any other time except that one day

The weight loss slowed a little for me, but I'm still at it ... 225 this morning, 25 LBS total

portion size, watch your carb intake, no sugars sugars are bad regardless if its form fruit or candy sugar is sugar. a bottle of oj for the store has just as much sugar as a snickers bar. this is what i have been doing down to 220 from 230-235

There are 3500 calories in a pound of fat

Intake vs outgoing calorie ratio is what you have to watch.

If at rest you MIGHT burn 1800 calories a day, so eat 700 calories more than that in a day and you will gain a pound in no time. Burn an extra 700 and you will lose a pound in no time.

This is all I look at. Calories are calories for the most part, you can get fat on lettuce and fruit if you consume more calories than you burn.

Keep it simple, don't be miserable, and eat carbs!! Carbs are the brains primary source (if not only source) for water - hence CarboHYDRATE. You gotta have them to feel good and think properly.

Eat to live, don't live to eat - and get up and move instead of watchin the tube. Hell, park the zero turn and push once a week - that'll increase the gap between calories is and out!
