Hey guys!

I see a LOT of new people here, and I simply wanted to tell you welcome!

We're all here for the same reason, and we're all in the same boat.

I just wanted to spend a minute letting you guys know that you're in the right place if you're serious about losing some weight.

When I started this journey a couple of years ago, I weighed 360 lbs. In about 18 months I cut my weight in half. I was literally half the man I used to be. It CAN be done.

I am still here, first of all because I gained weight after surgery (had a lot of skin removed), and because of a changed mindset on weight loss. I am working hard to lose those last lbs again.

The other reason I am here is because I believe in paying it forward. FatSecret is a free service, and the best service in the world. Even when I'm "done" losing my weight again, I will be here to help and motivate and lend a hand (and ear) wherever it's necessary - and of course also to keep myself in check.

Losing weight is the single best thing I have ever done to myself. If you need to lose a significant amount of weight, you're in the right place. Just the fact that you're reading this tells me that you've taken the first and most important step: You made the decision.

Welcome aboard. There's a whole army of people here ready to support you on your journey. Let's make it a good one.

If you need buddies, feel free to add me.

Keld.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

If you want to lose weight, you need to track everything - including that one cup of fruit a week!
