AWESOME! Isn't it wonderful when you find what works for you? Moderation in all things (including exercise) is a sensible lifestyle plan. Portion control is definitely a key to my success as well!

I agree that "not dieting" and just changing your diet is the way to go. Simplicity and portion size is a keyword. I really think that portion size is more important than what kinds of food you eat.

Cool Personal experience - I lost more than 100 pounds in 4 months

If your doctor recommends it, there are ways to lose weight safely. A steady weight loss of 1 to 2 pounds per week is recommended for the most effective long-term weight management.

The preliminary findings of all the studies to date show that combining exercise with a healthy diet is the most effective way to lose weight. Unfortunately, When it comes to exercising people tend to procrastinate a lot.

Now you don't need to spend much time exercising. You can lose thigh fat/fat thighs by exercising less than 15 minutes/day.

The ball is in your court!

Iím just a few pounds away from being able to say Iíve lost 100 pounds in 6 months.

Since starting my new healthy lifestyle (not diet) on January 15th of this year, Iíve lost 92 pounds. I started at 344 pounds and I currently weigh 252 pounds. The transformation has been unbelievable.

I want to tell you my story. While this might be presumptuous to say, Iím like many of you who might end up reading this post. Iíve always wanted to lose weight. Iíve tried and failed many diets Ė at least count, at least 10. Over the years Iíve read countless advice, tips, and suggestions on how to lose weight from websites, forums, magazines, television programs, so called fitness ďgurus,Ē etc.

None of the information being the ďmagicĒ answer that I was looking for to help me lose weight

On January 15th of this year, I found the the magic answer: simplicity. I suddenly realized (for ME) losing weight wasnít about no carb or low carb, counting points, taking a pill, eating cabbage soup, trying the ďlose 10 pounds in 2 week diet,Ē but simple moderation and exercise. I have lost 100 pounds in 6 months by simply controlling the portions of the food I eat (unhealthy or healthy), keeping the junk food in moderation, and going to the gym almost every day of the week.

The trick is to not feel like youíre on a diet. Because honestly, diets suck.

My breakfast consists of bacon, eggs, and toast almost every morning. Pancakes if I feel adventurous. If I want a snack during the day, itís usually some fresh fruits or veggies. Lunch is a cheeseburger and fries, perhaps a gyro or tuna sandwich. Dinner is almost always a hearty southern meal that my wife makes consisting of meat and two potatoes. Maybe weíll go out for BBQ. As long as I keep the really bad stuff in moderation and keep my calorie intake around 2,000, the weight has seemed to shed pretty quickly.

My gym workout isnít anything special. I get on the elliptical or treadmill 30-40 minutes a day. I lift weights 3 days a week. I make healthy choices outside of the gym like parking a little further away from the door when I go shopping, walk down the driveway to check the mail, etc.

It all seems to be working pretty well because itís simple and sustainable. I donít have cravings. If I want something to eat, I eat it. Cheeseburgers? All the time. BBQ ribs? Great. M&Ms? Fine. An entire bag is 200 calories, eat Ĺ of it. Thereís 100 calories for your day. Donít feel guilty about it, donít call it splurging Ė just control your portions and donít end up eating three bags and youíll be fine.

In addition to eating in moderation and exercising, Iíve also been staying accountable with my friends and family. While you certainly donít need to setup a weight loss blog like I did, you still need someone to keep up with your progress and to ask you how youíre doing Ė keeping yourself accountable is hard until you get into the swing of things, and then you get to the point (where I am now) where itís all about finishing what I started. Iíve lost 100 pounds and have another 50 to go. At the very least, stay accountable to your friends and family by e-mail, facebook twitter, etc. Some way!

Thatís what I wanted to share with you guys. Iíve read a lot from 3FC (amongst other places) over the past several months and wanted to give back Ė Iím tired of lurking. Iím so incredibly blessed to be a success story (albeit, still in progress) and want to answer any questions or concerns that I can.

If you have any questions for me or need some support, please post them up. I am busy during the day with work, but I'll reply at night.


I do agree wuth you.
