    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.

    Exercise wise I do now

    monday, Wednesday, Friday -
    Bike 15 mins.
    Weights - 10 shoulder lifts, 10 bench press, 10 squats, 10 bar curls. Then with dumbells 10 pec fly, 10 side lifts, 10 curls.
    Walk round block [about half a mile]

    Tuesday, Thursday -
    Bike 20 mins
    Walk round block

    Saturday, Sunday -
    Walk round longer walk [about a mile]

    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!
