performance: losing 1.5 lb a week
I've always been big, even as an infant. However, big and obese don't have to go hand in hand. I've had moments of success before, but for the most part, my life has been a steady process of moving up pants sizes. The most I've ever lost in the shortest amount of time was back in 2002 while I was working with a trainer. I think I ended up losing 60 lbs in 4 months. For a couple years after that I kept loosing, but I don't think I ever got below 280. Somehow I screwed it up. Got depressed, got married (unrelated) and gained all of it back. Whats worse is that I knew exactly what I was doing. What kept me from trying to lose it again was that I knew how hard it would be and how long it would take. It's been until now that I finally worked up the motivation to do it.
Now that I've started, it doesn't seem so hard anymore. It'll still take a while, but I'm patient and determined.
