    Hey guys. So I didn’t wanna gravedig the old post so here we are. New Years 2019 I decided to lose weight and did great until around April. Lots happened and not only did I gain all the weight I lost back.
    I gained an EXTRA 30lbs.
    My breaking point was right before Christmas I weighed myself... I was ABOVE 310. I was so embarrassed and tried to ignore my reality. Then Christmas happened and I saw the pics of myself. 3 days later I started my diet.

    March 20 2020, my father in law passed away suddenly. I almost gave up again. But I was starting to see positive changes.
    May 14, I lost my job. Fired over office politics.
    I almost broke again. But I had lost about 20 lbs at this point. I will admit for about a month I wallowed in my own self pity and fell off the wagon but got right back on it.
    June 14 I started my new job at a gas station. Standing instead of sitting all the time. I don’t snack as much if at all and I eat once a day usually.
    As of today I’m a few lbs off of 30lbs lost
    I’m down 2 shirt sizes (3xl was beginning to get tight when I started and now I comfortably fit an XL)
    Down around 4 pants sizes, from a 20 to a 16. When I started I couldn’t get my 16’a over my knees.

    I’m no where near done. But I’ve never stuck with this this long and haven’t gotten this far before
    I’m officially below where I was when I started last year. Here’s to more success I guess.

    I hope you all have been happy and healthy.

    It's nice to see some dedication.

    When it comes to losing weight, it's all about having a plan that you can maintain. As long as you eat healthy and get some exercise, good things will happen.

    Like Panduh said, keep on that dedication and plan famalam.

    It's pretty smart to do it slowly, honestly that never crossed my mind before. But hey you have my support fren, keep up the amazing work and good on you for being brave.

    You'll get to that goal in no time, and be what you want/need yourself to be!

    Keep it up!

    Being dedicated and losing that much weight is great. My advice would be to plan for a diet exit plan in the future after you hit your goal to avoid my mistake of gaining back all the weight i lost in 2 months.

    Great progress, but look into fasting. It will help you greatly.

    So here we are almost a year into it and I’m damn near 50lbs down. [​IMG]
    I had got a job at Walmart and walking almost 10k steps a day. Then I got hurt and have been bed ridden for almost 3 weeks. But I’m keeping the weight off and down so I’m happy even tho I can’t really walk still[​IMG]

    Back in my prime I was big as hell. My last doctors appointment, 8 or so months before deciding to lose weight, I was around 250 pounds. No idea what I was at my heaviest. The biggest thing that helped me lose weight was cutting back the junk food. I found that it didn’t matter how much I ate, but what it was exactly that I was eating. I’m able to say this kind of stuff now, since it’s been a long long time since then, but I used to drink an entire 12 pack of coke in a night. Easily. I would always go out and get McDonald’s or on the way home stop at the gas station and buy honey buns or a few bags of chips. I went from that to eating high protein foods like white meat and tuna while drinking nothing but water. Oh my fucking god the amount of water I drank was stupid. I used to fill up one of those big ass jugs you get at Walmart (I think they’re 1.5-2 gallons) and I’d drink 1 of those daily. It took about a year but I lost about 100 pounds.

    Its a long road ahead for you shel. I’m proud of you for sticking it out this far. You’re doing great and I hope you can stick with it. Keep us updated Ight?

    So I know it’s only 8lbs difference between the last time I posted but this is the “year” milestone (off by a few days ofc)
    Pretty fucking proud of myself tbh.
    This year has been hard but I’ve learned to love myself, something I’ve never been able to do. Which is part of the reason I gained all this weight to begin with, among other shit.
    Goal for end of 2021; be at or under 200lbs.
    I appreciate all of your kind words and words of enthusiasm and support. Especially in this community it means a whole lot.

    here’s to 2021 being better

    (also I’m uploading this via mobile so if the pic needs resizing lmk)
