Default Re-introduction

Hi all,

I know itís been a while since Iíve been around. I see a lot of new faces. Iím doing well. I had that 30-40 gain after my back surgery but at least I had kept it at that. Anyway Iím ready to get serious about this again. I never really meant to leave the board but it seems like that is what we all do with the exception of a few.

Anyway for those who donít know me I have been around here since 2003. Iíve lost half of my weight as of 12/21/05 which was 245 lbs. I am now at 282 and on my way to my new goal of 225. I plan on being there by the first of the year and that is very doable. It would mean a 2 lb a week loss and I think I can do that.

I have always been a calorie counter. I find that to be the easiest most effective and healthiest for me. I eat 1800 calories a day and drink around 90 oz of water per day.

This is a life long journey we are on. It never ends even when we get to goal. We hit a few fat bumps here and there but thatís life. Anyhow itís good to be back and I look forward to getting to know some of you new folks. This board has been a tremendous help to me in the past and I hope I can help others.

Hey there. It's nice to officially meet you. You have done an amazing job with your weightloss. I really am looking forward to having you be an active part of this board. I wish you continued success on this very long, though not always easy road we're on. It DOES get bumpy sometimes, doesn't it?

Something to add...

Howie, I hope you don't mind! I was trying to find an overview of Howie's story for those that don't know. I don't know all the details but I know he had to lose a lot (all?) of his weight without exercising due to a bad back.

This is some information from his wife about some of Howie's struggles -

Hi, Howie and welcome back!

I've seen your story around the place and all I can say is WOW! You've done so well in the past with losing that I'm sure you'll end up exactly where you want to be in no time!

Thanks for the kind words. I too have realized I do much better when I come here for help and to help others. It keeps me motivated.
