Nope. I've been hovering between 305 and 290 for the last five years. I was down to 282 back in the spring of last year, then slowly rose to about 290 back in September. The holidays, trying to buy this house, an enabling family, and a healthy dose of depression made things worse. So, I'm making a commitment again, with the hope of staying the course.

Twocubs, by the looks of the lot you now own that you posted pics of on another thread you will lose a good amount of weight raking leaves and mowing grass!

At my heaviest I was at 215 and I bought size 40 pants because my "fat pants" were getting tight. Ten days in an I'm at an even 208 and my size 38s fit. I have mostly size 36s but the goal is to get to 34s. Even when I was 178 I was in 35/36s. I don't have any illusions of ever being "buff" because I never was and age is catching up with my joints. I just don't want my ticker to work harder just lugging around this extra weight.

I did it! Major milestone.
I went from a fast walk to a jog!
5 minute walk/ to 15 min jog/ to 5 minute slower walk.
I can already feel the shin splints.
Gonna clean up and put done heat cream on those babies, then try for 16 minute jog on Monday next.

My wife reminded me that last time I got on the treadmill I had 2 seizures in the afternoon. Dehydration, low sugar I guess. Staying hydrated today.

We both lost 4% in 30 days and won our "Dietbet". We're thinking of jumping into a 10% over 6month game. Anyone have any interest? It's putting your money where your mouth is, pay in, lose the weight, guaranteed to get what you paid in back, most double or more depending on how many folks actually finish. Ya don't finish, ya don't get your cash.
