I'm new to the site and I gotta say I love it. I'd use it just to know what was in what I ate even If I wasn't trying to diet. I figured I'd come into these forums and try to make some friends. I've tried diet or exercise before to lose weight but never tried both at the same time. Usually when I work out its for some strength or conditioning goal, and not weight loss(I do some amateur fighting) but seeing as how that's just a hobby I've decided to put weight loss first and to not concern myself with muscle or performance..they are good but I want to focus on losing weight now.
I'm 352 pounds and I love to eat..so I don't plan on starving myself. I'm not planning to lose 100 pounds by next month..but I may push as hard as to lose 30 by mid-June. I've never had a problem with exercise, I just like to eat. I often run/jog/walk. I have fighter practices every week, and hit a heavy-bag a few times per week.
I actually don't have much of a problem with the way I am, I feel great, last year I did a 10 mile run, this year a few 5ks, there are just things I want to do in life that a fat guy can't. I think it's affecting me getting jobs, I wanted to join the military since I was a boy and at 28 I think its now or never. I want to go skydiving..they told me the equipment didn't fit anyone over 250 pounds..so hey let's lose some weight and do some skinny guy stuff for a change
Anyway that's me, good to meet you all.
