Smile Hi decided to Join

Hello everyone Perhaps this is what I need to not only get me motivated but to stay this way without despairing.
I was until 30 yr old slim and svelt even with 4 children at the time. When I would get complements I thought people were just being nice since I always felt I was far less then perfect I am 5ft 8" was 145lbs.

However now at 42 and 3 more children later I weigh in at gasp 270lbs I do not binge (unless I am in denial) except for Saturdays, though my body will aknowledge that I definatley make the wrong food choices, note I excercise twice a week now , I walk for 1 hr done it for two weeks with NO RESULTS

My husband is not much help he just tells me that there is more of me to love especially my top half then he buys me chocolate!!!

I guess my first question is, how many calories are you consuming? You can't out-exercise a bad diet.

Give us some more info and we may be able to help you come up with a plan that will get your weight going away at a good rate.

47 M 5'8"

May 4, 2010...... 440? lbs. (Start FitDay Size 60 Jeans)
June 19, 2010.... 393 lbs. (First Weigh-in)
June 19, 2011.... 229 lbs. (164 lbs. gone in one year :-)
Current Weight... 185 lbs. (Size 36 Jeans)

Next Goal 169 lbs. (07/04/12)
Ultimate Goal 165 lbs. (12/31/12)

The best exercises for weight loss are Fork Putdowns and Table Pushaways.
