I'm fairly new the boards on Fitday.com but not to the website itself. I've used it off and on for a couple of years. When I use it, I do really well. Then I fall off the proverbial wagon.
I realized (again) that my weight was getting out of control. In November 2013, I was at my heaviest at 363. Since then, without a huge amount of effort other than cutting out dark soft drinks and caffeine, I lost about 20 lbs. Since September 10th, I've recommitted myself to my weight loss.
I've cut out all soft drinks except for about once a week or so (I only buy one at a time or have one when out to eat) and drink water instead. I'm keeping between 80-100 oz of water a day. I'm walking almost every day plus just generally getting off the couch more. I'm eating smaller portions and recording all my food in my food journal. I've set some mini goals to meet to make losing 208 lbs (from the 363 in November) seem a little less intimidating.
I've gotten some great tips from here. Thanks and good luck to everyone!
