c. I do not have the energy to do stuff, I have 5 grandkids and two on the way
d. I do not want my family to be embarrassed of me
e. I am tired of people looking through me
I hope it works this time!!!
Bill, you're in the right place. Our stories are similar. FitDay is the only thing that's ever really worked for me.
Eat less and track it in FitDay, and move move and track it in FitDay and I guarantee you'll lose.
Hey, if I can drop 100 lbs in 26 weeks, you can too! And, you're starting in at a svelt 305 lbs--I was way over 400 in May of last year.
Please drop in on the 100 + pounds to lose thread in Diet Tips if you want--lots of nice folks there. And don't hesitate to ask if there is anything we can do to help.
