Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: There's been 3! LOL, September 10th, 2011

Starting Weight: 296.7 Lbs

Present Weight: 293

Goal Weight: 140

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: My excuses for exercise and my struggle with quitting smoking

Following any specific plan: Calorie counting and regular exercise

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I lost 40lbs in the past, and thought it was now part of my regular routine, 9 months later, the weight is completely back. This time I won't let up, I've realized this will be a life-time of watching and caring.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm getting married in August of 2012, and I don't necessarily need to be at my goal weight, but I sure would love to be able to enjoy the day without being out of breath, looking and feeling uncomfortable, and not feeling like people are staring at me for all the wrong reasons. My soon-to-be wife deserves this as much as I do.
