Ht. 5'8", Start: 247 lb, Today: 221 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 147 lb - Thought i'de just share some tips for everyone that have helped me personally and I hope they can help someone else :)
1) only eat when you are hungry-don't stick to a schedule
2) stop eating when you are not hungry anymore - rather than when you're full
3) diet is more important then exercise so if you're just starting concentrate on what your eating - I restricted to 1600 cals and I'm never hungry
4) plan what your eating for the day and try and stick to it
5) allow yourselves treats - if you restricted these too much you will end up binging (pr I always did)
I hope this helps someone and good luck everyone!
