    I know this is off-topic, but I'm damn proud of myself. I've been on a diet/excercie program for about 7 weeks now and I've currently lost 32 lbs. I now weigh 238. Only 18more to go! 220 is about ideal for me being 6'5". Anyway, just thought I'd share.

    Congrats man. I've been trying to do one too, but mine consists of running 2 miles 2 days, then sitting around for 2 weeks and repeating again. Haha.

    You're in for a wierd time my friend. I'm 6'2" and used to be around the 265 mark. Since the end of this summer I've been anywhere between the 205-215 mark. Everything seems really wierd after losing the weight. Like sleeping, now my knees touch and there's no fat cushion and its not comfortable. Also being able to walk into a store and being able to have the majority of stuff fit you. You can actually jog for more than a block too, always fun to be able to do that! Of course at ripe age of 18 I've noticed wrinkles and line appearing in my face after the excess padding was gone. Congrats man is all I gotta say, you're gonna love it!

    I've been working at it for the last 6 months, and have managed to lose all of 10 lbs. Ahh the blessings of a slow metabolism.

    Congrats man!![​IMG][​IMG] That's just as good news as getting new axles or something like that.

    I just started jogging and excercising (today was my fourth day) and news like this is what I need to encourage myself to go on. I'm 6'0 and 210lbs. My ideal weight is 175-185.

    Thumbs up, and keep up the good work!![​IMG]

    Congradulations are in order. I've also been working out and have gone from 235 to 212 in the last 8 weeks. That's 23 lbs for me and two belt holes. I'm 6'1" and still have a way to go. My goal is 200lb. It's great to hear someone else doing the same thing.

    I'm doing the Body for Life program. I had a free coupon on Amazon.com so I used it for that book. It has made a huge difference. I was always athletic and even had some football offers but I split my knee cap in three and that was pretty much the end of that. I bloated over the last ten years and got high blood pressure and colesterol. It wasn't good.

    The Body for Life book got me to eat better and excercise. I think the eating right and weightlifting are the key. I'm no Hulk or anything, but I feel much better. Blood pressure and colesterol are close to normal. I don't follow the eating 100% but I eat alot better. No more eating 2 or 3 whoppers just because I can.

    Anyway the main message is this. Excercise and you will feel better about yourself and be healthier for your family. Not to mention it is easier to lift all those bolt on parts for your blazer!

    No joke man, I feel so much better, and I have a load of energy. I didn't follow any one program, I just took what I've been reading on the internet and what I already knew and just went with it. Cool thing is I don't follow the diet on the weekends. Kinda hard when the girlfriend wants to go out to eat all of the time. I can't complain though, hehe.

    Congradulations, you will like being thin. I'm 6'2' and 200 lbs and have been that way for years. However, I once got up to 240lbs and absolutely hated it. I was able to loose those extra pounds by watching what I eat and doing moderate aerobic exercise. I now go up and down within the range of 197 to 205 and I consider that normal for me. But when I go up one belt notch, I immediately go back to more exercise and careful eating until I'm back down to 200. That works for me. Good Luck.

    Good Job! gotta say this, drink more water. Course if you're not in the desert you don't need to, and maybe I'm a camel.
    Sounds like most of us are in the same boat, lifestyle changes and we take it out on the gut.
    As for tthe 18 yr old punk :-) your time will come. I was in the same boat, lived in the dorms, ate about 4 octagonal meals a day (that's a square with 4 helpings of ice cream) and couldn't make it an ounce over 195. Lifted my ass off, ate like crazy, then figured it out. Played basketball for about 2 hrs a day average. Oops. Gave up on gaining weight and just played ball. Then graduated and spent free time hiking, same results. Start business and get married, and it's all of a sudden a struggle to stay in the old jeans.
    Anyway, hang in there, I know there's some strange stuff that you'll have to deal with but you're well on the way!
    Maybe we should structure some events like the triathalons they tried. Except instead of doing stuff like shooting clays (not that that's not a good way to spend some time) you run or ride or hike your ass off. We could make it to where you had to navigate a loop and meet up with your codriver and vehicle, then trade off. This could get out of hand! good night.

    hey congrats. man. I just thought that was a cool message to read on here. It's not often you reaad a message like yours. Hey if I can be of any assistance, I would be more than willing to help. I am a Kinesiology student...I want to be a personal trainer when i gratuate. Actually it sounds like you are doing great already. I know for me lifting weights is the Key. I am 6' and 210, I know i need to loose some but i know i can do it. With lifting you can set a new personal best nearly every week. keep up the great work, and once again congrats.
