This is day one.
Went for my yearly phisical last week and the DR. told me what I already knew but never heard from an impartial person.
He said, You are obese, you are 100 pounds over weight.
If you do not lose weight you will have severe health problems in the near future. So today is the first day of my new life and my new eating habits.
I weigh 254 pounds and am 5'8". It has taken 54 years to get here so I know it will not be lost quickly. My long term goal is 12/31/2012. My short term goal is to get started and move towards the long term goal and my new life.

I wish you wouldnt call yourself lard :( ...weight loss is a lifestyle change. Before today your "thing" was food, for some people their "thing" is playing video games, whatever it is. Your "thing" has to now be about eating healthy, exercising, using fitday to track your food intake as well as your activities and figure out what you are putting into your body. I can only tell you that it's going to be tough to start but once you get in a routine (and you HAVE to have a routine). Make weight loss and healthy eating your obsession and you will get there. Good luck on your journey!
