Ht. 6'1", Start: 275 lb, Today: 260 lb - This looks like a great site, good to share with others who know the struggle. I've been overweight my entire life, and it sucks. I've always been the fat kid, but it wasnt that big of a deal since I always had friends and was well liked by everyone. Anyways, im in grade 10 now and have finally just had ENOUGH of it. I want a girlfriend and thats just not going to happen having me being really overweight. I always thought i would be fat forever, but i've found inside the means and motivation to lose weight, and realise that yes, it can be done but i've got to work for it. When I started my war on flab in mid november i weighed in at about 275 pounds, although I am 6'1 and have a large frame and am fairly muscular (underneath the coat of fat that is lol). Since then i've lost about 15 pounds and am down to 260 and am already feeling and looking better. I don't eat too much, usually a nutrishake in the morning, some fruit for lunch then a regular dinner. I don't count calories or anything like that, i just make sure that i dont eat too much. I also lift weights and walk about 1.5 kilometers on my treadmill (i increase the distance as time goes on) everyday. I really hope that I can keep it up and stay motivated, and I wish the same for all of you too. My secrets so far have been killer music when exercising, and keeping my eye on the prize (picture my body the way i want it).
