  1. For me personally, results are the best motivation. Patience is key in weight loss or whatever you want to achieve. It's just like anything else in this world. You have to WANT to lose weight. You have to WANT it bad enough to suffer a little, whether that be spending time in the gym or cutting out foods you like to eat. If you WANT it more then you want the other bad stuff you will succeed. Keep a daily/weekley log of you weight or whatever it is you are tracking. Once you see good results, you will have all the motivation you need.
  2. I probably should clear this up. It's not weight that I am most concerned with, it's body fat. I don't care if I weigh 600 pounds as long as I a good body fat index. :P My goal is to get to 10-12 % body fat. I know, based on my past, that I will be there at about 185. - My wife is also doing really awesome. She had gotten up to about 140. She is around 105 now. She is great runner like her brother. I am a terrible runner. I am flat footed as all get out. The fastest I could ever run a mile in was about 7:45. My brother in law can get to below 6:00. She runs a 5k in less the 25 mins and he can get to around 21 mins. They love running. She runs about 6-7 miles 5-6 times a week. He runs more then that. They love it, I do not. In fact, one I get to an ideal weight, I will only run sparingly. I have had to knee operations so I will stick to the eliptical and stair master. I just can't the fat burn on those machines like I can a treadmill.
  3. I haven't been around the ABF forum for awhile. Football season keeps me the TATF forum. I am glad we have this pinned though. I enjoy talking about this. My background. Was pretty much a fat little kid. My parents are awesome and my mom is now a health nut, but when I was little it was like snacktown. I was fat up until I turned 22. I started lowering my calorie intake and exercising for 1-2 hours a day religiously. I went from 268 to 173. So life went forward. When I got married I was about 188. I had a 33 inch waste, pretty fit. Enjoyed running and lifting. 3 years later, 259. I ate terrible, felt terrible, looked pathetic. Back in October I decided to change. Again, I lowered my caloric intake @ 259 lbs to about 1000-1200 calories per day. Started running. I could barely run 1/2 mile in October. Today I am running about 2-3 miles, still in weight loss mode, and I lift daily. I am 205, which for my body type is looks fine. I am thought going to get back to that 185-188 range. When I am that point I can start increasing my diet and start introducing more calories. I like eating fibers and proteins mostly. This is kinda funny, I was thinking about this the other day. Food makes me happy. I love eating mexican, chinese, cheeseburger, etc, but I am happiest when I eat healthy. Hope everyone is keeping up the healthy lifestyle.
