Great job guys! I got on the scale this morning and almost cryed when I saw 180. This is the officially the heaviest I've ever been. I'm 5' 11" so I don't look fat at all, but I feel like crap. I get winded very easy and my legs are sore as Hell from doing basic work in the welding shop this weekend. Sitting behind a desk has been the worst decision I've ever made in my life!

Quit eating processed foods. Eat locally grown/organic as much as possible. Control portion size. Eat whole grains.

I think we should do a 3 month contest for salty cash to see who can loose most weight... A "SaltyCajun biggest looser" :-) guys will always perform better with competition!

That ain't a bad idea. I could use some encouragement. I'd be down.

Get past the first 2-3 weeks and it gets easier. I made a change the last week of June and I was at my all time record of 260. Last week I hit 220 for the 1st time in 8-10 years. More importantly IMO, I have lost 5 belt loops. I am with Gooh and his math. Plenty of calculators on the net that considers age, height, weight, etc to figure out a game plan. I down loaded an app called MyFitnessPal and I keep track of EVERYTHING I eat and drink and bought a cheap food scale so I could see what my meat weighed before cooking. I am trying to keep it all fresh. Fruit, Veg's, grilled meats, eggs, plain oatmeal, and water. Combined with major portion control and added some exercise. Incline walking on treadmill. I try to keep calorie intake to a max of 1200 for now. It was hard at first, but kept the mentality to eat to survive not eat for the taste which is my vice. The excitement of watching the weight come off over 8 weeks and hitting -40 started to change my thinking to dietary instead of change. My original goal was 220, but now I would like to see 200-210. I started becoming obsessed with the weight and I have learned in the past that is a guaranteed way to put it all back on. My thinking becomes "I have made it so I can stop." To keep it off, I can ease up but can never stop. So last week, I told myself no more weight checking. Give September all I have with intake control and exercise and come October 1, I will weigh myself and compare that to how I feel and look and decide whether to keep going or start maintaining.

I switched to just drinking water ONLY as much as I can. Try to stay away from plate lunches for lunch.(which I LOVE) Try and just eat turkey sandwiches for lunch. And making sure I eat breakfast is the biggest thing cause I am not so hungry at lunch time. I used to hardly ever eat breakfast. I started out bike riding and have gotten up to 12 miles per ride but I feel like running is burning more calories so I kind of rotate between the 2. I don't own a scale but I have had to drop about 10 lbs or so by now.

Don't let 1 bad day kill it which is the trap I always fell in to. Kind of like 1 bad shot in golf or a 1 day skunk fishing trip. Keep the overall mindset and don't let a little stumble knock you down.

Breakfast is huge. I also never ate breakfast, but force myself now days even if it is a couple of apples or banana if I am running late. My key is to never allow myself to get hungry which is when I go stupid.

Also, use the internet and search calories burned on your exercise. For those of us with weight loss as our primary focus, calorie burn is the #1 goal when exercising. You will be surprised at what you find out if you search.

Just got back. Almost didn't make it back home! My stamina is building though. Only had to stop for a break 2-3 times.
