Seen a few posts about weight loss, better health etc from TBHers.

I started working out during my lunch hour 2 months ago, instead of stuffing my fat face. I started on the scale at a blistering, sagging weight of 287.

Yesterday I got on the blimp scale and now 259. I have not seen 259 since 9th grade.

Doing a modified carb watch diet. 5 days of cardio, 5 days of light weight lifting. I will let yall know how I progress. Best of luck to the rest of you trying to lose the pounds.

Good job last time I seen you I could tell a noticeable difference. You were still ugly but lost a lot of weight.

30 minutes on the Eliptical. I have heard others say that is the worst equipment to use but with my back surgeries etc it is the safest for me. I do that 5 times a week. Cardio 5 times a week no exceptions.

It has worked wonders for me. Low impact and heart rate goes up. Sweat like I am in a hot box.

15 minutes of LIGHT WEIGHTS. Monday, wednesday and friday I work upper body chest. Tuesday and thursday are legs. Light weights and 4 sets of 15 reps each set. I am looking to tone not build mass.

Watch carbs. Notice I said watch. I did Atkins and lost right at 100 lbs. Problem was I couldnt keep it off. Lunch today will be nachos. Cheese, meat and a very few chips.

Best of luck to yall BTW I am 6'2" if I can get at 220, I will be good. My BP and diabetes is doing much better. Watch your sugar levels as you lose.

Best of luck to you CrookedArrow. Please keep up the good work and post up your progress. Sometimes it is good to be held accountable so we'll be your judges. It also provides motivation for folks like myself to read other experiences like yours to get me/us off the couch and on the road or gym. Lord knows I need to lose a few as well.

Nearly everyone of us "overestimates" our ideal weight/bone size/muscle mass, etc. Not saying we should be in the marathon runner category of 2 lbs per inch of height meaning a 6-footer would weigh 144 lbs (72" x 2 = 144), but 3 lbs per inch would put a 6-footer at 216 lbs which most docs would frown at unless you are really muscled with low body fat percentage. Harder to figure body fat percentage but it is generally a better indicator of a good weight.

CrookedArrow--you are on the right track for sure, just keep with it and you'll be far healthier.

Good job and keep it up! I dropped from 235 to 145 (not the healthy way) and then bounced back up to almost 200. The hardest part for me was finding a diet that didn’t leave me craving junk. Once I figured that out this February, I was able to drop back down between 180-185. I feel better, look better, and really look forward to my workouts because I eat enough to fuel up. There is a balance you have to find, but once you do you’ll wonder how you ever lived another way.
