I’m much fatter than I should be and it’s starting to wear on me. I generally avoid the scale and let how my pants fit do the talking but I checked in at 239 pounds this morning. That is too many pounds. Ideally I like to operate in the 200-210 range but at this point its been quite a few years of creeping upwards since I’ve been there.
So I’m starting this thread as a sort of public shaming/community support group. I am guessing by the demographics we have around here that there are some others in a similar boat. And if we can help each other shed a few, that’d be just one more cool thing about this place.
Tell us how much you weigh, or don’t. Tell us you are trying to drop a few pounds and why. Tell us you used to be fat and now you aren’t. Tell us you are fat and you like being fat, outline the benefits of the girth. We all know how to lose weight, so we don’t really need the calories in vs. calories out discussion or to get down in the weeds on workouts. But tell us what has worked and what hasn’t or what you are currently trying.
I’m 6’ tall and almost 35 years old. I want to lose 40 lbs. I want to be able to crawl around with my 7 month old without my back giving me fits. I want to be able to fit into all the clothes in my closet. I want to be able to swing a golf club without having to suck my gut in. I want to not get winded and sweaty doing simple tasks. But mostly I want to live longer and feel better. I’m gonna report in on here semi-regularly with updates and hope people will do the same.
