I was just doing some research on dieting and the "how-to's" and came accross this fitday that just seems so perfect. I was also contemplating Jenny Craig or Nutrisystem, but I knew their system was all about calorie intake and balanced diets, but way overcharged on food.
Anyway in 2007, after avoiding the weighing scale for so long, I finally did with some buddies at the gym and it read 295lbs. I was in shock because I knew I was heavy, but didn't think I was THAT heavy. I went on a diet and played a lot more basketball when I found out my weight. I lost about 60 lbs in about 6-8 months time. I wasnt really keeping track, it was just a complete change of lifestyle, but I plateued and just couldnt get past 230lbs.
My wifey got pregnant in 08 and I just kinda let it go a bit. After my daughter was born, I completely let it go. Im went back to 270lbs but I fluctuate at around 265lbs!!!
My stats are pretty identical to Ron's:
First, my name is RON
Goal: 200lbs (first goal is 230)
Currently I'm eating about 1500 calories a day and I'm trying to get a high protein and fiber diet. I play basketball about twice a week, but I sit at a desk all day.
Any suggestions guys?
