A whole lot of weight to shift.
So I have a whole load of weight to lose.
Starting at over 500 pounds I had to lose over half my body weight.
Started early February and in 22 since have lost 88 pound. Things are going great and couldn't of hoped for a better start to my weight lose journey, but I know that's just what this is a start and I have a long way to go.
My main vice use to be alcohol, but since starting this I have cut it out completely and the binging on crap after I drank as gone with it.
I still have a treat meal now and then, but make sure it isn't more than once a week, going to go with a treat meal every two or three weeks.
Started out not being able to even walk round my block, as the first time I tried in February I had to turn round and go back home, while this is a bad thing it gave me great motivation to lose the weight, as at thirty years old the way I was carrying on I would not of lived more than a few more years I don't think.
Moving on to my food now I have cereal in the morning a sandwich and a packet of crisps or two for dinner and a veg dinner or stir fry, beef bourguignon, spag bol, jacket, salad or fish for tea. Also having a yogurt and banana and four crackers in between, also a apple now and then.
Will cut the crisps out when I stop loosing weight, but for now they are OK.
I did go out to stay with friends in Spain for three months and that was a massive boost, as they have a pool and was in there nearly every day.

You're doing FAN-BLOODY-TASTIC! Keep it up
My Minimins diary Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off of the goal.
We would accomplish more things if we did not think of them as impossible.
