High Bob welcome to Fitday. Everyone is different with respect to their matabolism and the amount of weight they lose. If you set up realistic goals for yourself which you can adjust, you will do fine. I also do not compare myself to anyone else since we are all different. If you do exercise daily, ie walking swimming, treadmill, etc. with reading and eat high protein , high fibre and low fat, and low carbs you will accomplish your goals and I know from me having lost 23 lbs in 5 weeks, I feel really good about myself. Best Wishes Allen

(But my name isn't actually John, so HA!)
So real quick, why am I here? Well besides the extra 20 pounds around my gut (I quit smoking in 2004, and within 2 years grew the extra blubber which has stayed with me).
I have children who are active in sports and I do a fair amount of coaching. I have bad knees though (no cartiledge) so I can't run at all. I would like to stay active for them.
But what gets me really erked is my dad who is 84 recently went from 204 to 184 (he had help though, had his gaulbladder removed)
Still, not fair that he loses weight and I stay the same day after day.
I am determined to feel better!!
Now just need to learn how to use this website.
If you say Hi, I'll share my carrots with you
And I promise to be a good neighboor here too.
Thanks and Hi All
Bob (real name)
