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.

Brilliant loss!! Getting close to the century club well done!!
 
You totally will make it. I've been around the weight loss forums block once or twice and I am willing to bet money you'll make it :) You are determined enough and on your way to get addicted to exercising which would be the key.

Loads of good luck!
