Hi everyone

My name is Ryan and I'm here to join the 300+ club.

I'm 30 years old and I currently weigh in at a fluffy 336 pounds. (It hurts just typing that number) I'm married, have an 8 year old son and currently live in the Atlanta GA area. It's sad but I've been overweight all my life. It's finally time to change that.

I just wanted to say an official "hi" and that I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone.

Thanks everyone.

@mamadoll - My plan at the moment is to reduce my calorie intake, eat better foods and exercise daily (30 min walking). I guess I'm trying to change my lifestyle rather than just diet.

Good plan! I am a calorie counter as well, I try to stick to whole foods and exercise and with only 16 lbs lost I already feel better. I look forward to seeing your progress!

Thanks everyone

@sweetcakes736 - I thought you'd like that. I was a little hesitant at first but figured why not. I'm hoping it'll help me stay motivated.

Celestial-
For me the exercise thread has made it so much easier to stay committed to my new journey. Since December I've lost 70 pounds and when I first started when I walked a half a mile, I needed a hour nap, but now I can do 3 hours a day and not even sweat it.
Last week, I went canoeing down the Buffalo river for 8 miles, I wasn't sore after I was done and the morning after I still felt great. Sunburn but that was about it.
It's amazing how belonging to something bigger than yourself can help you in so many ways you never even dreamed possible.
I look forward to traveling with you as you gain health and endurance.
Take care
Faith

Welcome from another newb! I'm 34 and started at 306. I'm also following the same "diet" (ie lifestyle change) you are. Just eating healthier/whole foods, and lower calorie consumption.

Looking forward to sharing this journey with you!
