Hi all,

I mention not exercising because that's "my story" - by all means, if you CAN exercise - GO FOR IT!!! But if you can't or know someone who can't I would love to share my story & be a source of encouragement!!

Take care & thanks!!!

Hi Ken, welcome to 3FC! Congratulations on your wonderful weight loss. Please do share your story. I'm sure there are some people that may be hesitant to speak up that would be encouraged by reading it.

Congratulations on your success! It's great for those that are unable to exercise to see someone who has had success by changing their eating habits alone. What is/was your food plan like?

Thanks to each of you for the warm welcome!! (& compliments!!)

Here's a few tips from when I was getting started:

I have never counted calories but I believe it's a good thing to do, at least to get into a healthy eating pattern..

Skipping the part of HOW I gained.. getting to the point of HOW I lost...

First off I was not heavy growing up.. so when I decided it was time to lose I knew nothing about dieting and I didn't want to know anything about that lifestyle - I have watched friends/family yo yo over the years... so I researched everything from Weightloss surgery to many different diets to try and find the commonalities... and to pick the things from each that I believed would work for me...

I started taking notes and made a list of foods that would take more calories to burn than they gave me...

I started having SOMETHING for breakfast (I almost NEVER ate breakfast)

I started drinking SOMETHING... I was never good at even finishing a drink before... A business associate once asked why I never finished my drink when we would go out.. I was surprised by the question as I didn't realize I was doing that...

I started eating whole wheat/grain bread and pasta and brown rice (instead of those with white flour...

I started eating only meat & veggies @ restaurants - and would get a kids meal at fast food restaurants..

I started breaking my meals into smaller portions (instead of eating only one or two times per day)

I started eating a small snack between meals... (again, a healthy snack!) usually fruit.. but not always!

Please keep in mind that I could not excercise - if you can - I suggest that you do!! I wish I could!!!

gotta run for now.. I'll post more tips later!!

Much success to all!!!

Hi Ken,

I am not sure how old you are, but WOW! The pics look like you went from age 48 to age 28! Hopefully this will end up being a compliment, I am terrible at guessing ages, but nonetheless, the pics literally look like TWO different people. There is Ken, and there is Kens Hard Body younger brother! HA HA... but the "younger brother" is YOU!!! What an awesome feeling!

Sending you a pat on the back man, you did it!

Barb

Great tips Ken. Very similar to what I have done. I wonder how many of us used to skip breakfast. I did for more than 25 years. Eating breakfast was a big change for me.
