Default Newbie here!

Started fitday halfheartedly late last year, but have recently been diligent in checking in almost everyday and listing my weight and foods for each day. I started at 253 and am now down to 237. My goal is 120. I have been trying to stick to about 1000 calories a day with less than 50% carbs. I get very little excercise because multiple back problems. I am 41 yo and have been overweight (technically obese) since about 2003, after my last surgery in 11/02. Multiple medications had pretty severe side effects of slowing my metabolism and simply making me gain weight. I have not bought any new clothes in 4 years, as I refuse to buy even 1 more size XXL or 22 item! When I hit my goal, only then will I buy a new wardrobe, size 7 hopefully!
Hello to all!

Welcome aboard and congratulations on making the decision to become a loser. If you need a little encouragement, I started at just slightly less than you, 244.6 and have the same goal weight (so I'm guessing you are short?). I was also 41 when I started on fitday, although have since celebrated a birthday. As far as health goes, I'm an asthmatic with bad knees, very bad knees, and like you I take a fist full of meds, although to my knowledge none of them hinder my metabolism. Anyway what I'm trying to say is I've been in your shoes and fitday has been a really great tool for me to lose weight, and if I can do this, so can you.
Starting weight: 244.6 lbs. 10/01/09
Pounds lost: 80.6 lbs
Current weight: 164 lbs
Goal weight: 120 lbs
Weight to go: 44 lbs
Goal Date: 1/1/13
