    Another newbie... I've lost a bit over 75 lbs and thought these forums could give me a little bit more support when the going gets rough.

    I started dieting and working out every day after my wife left me for another guy. My main intention was to get under 300lbs because insurance wouldnt cover me if I was over 300 once I was off my wife's insurance plan. Since then I have been determined to get back into shape (I used to be a big time athlete in HS and college- but as a 6'9" Football lineman, 250 or so would be pretty "toned").

    Since getting back to a workout schedule, I am off anti depressants (dont need them anymore because I've been feeling great).. I was on them for years.

    I am also feeling much more self confident, and I'm getting the attention of females again! (as sad as that sounds, it boost self confidence!)

    So far so good. Now I just hope to keep it up because my goal is to use the swimming pool in my new house this year. I haven't gone swimming in years because I've been so self-conscious about my weight.

    I lose about 10 lbs a week, and then gain 6-8 on the weekends compliments of being single and going to bars... but it leads to about an 8-12 lb net loss per month.

    I'm planning on starting the P90x in a week or two as well!

    thats pretty much me! I look forward to getting to know you all better on the forums!
