Ok, before I begin let me just say...I am a guy. A dude. Yep, a Male. A fellow FS'er told me that she didn't realize I was a guy till we chatted. SO just to make it obvious...I am a guy. Now with that out of the way. I know FS has a lot of women but there are a few men who are battling the weight on FS as well.

UPDATE: Ok I am back after being FS for about 2-3 years. The weight crept back and pushed me to 256.7. I realized I needed to get back on the horse and lose the weight. Its time. So I am now at 244.5 but I still need to keep going. I was at 238 about a month ago but Christmas/new years and some careless eating caused some weight to creep back in. SO I will keep the same goals I had the last time and update these as I hit my marks.

Goal 1: Wear Size 40 Slacks without Cinching - Feb 2, 2015.

Goal 2: Reach 230 lbs

Goal 3: Reach Size 38 Slacks without Cinching

Goal 4: Reach 220 lbs

Goal 5: Wear Size 36 slacks without cinching

Goal 6: Reach 211.7 lbs (my lowest weight before the prior weight gain)

Goal 7: Reach 200 lbs

Goal 8: Reach 190 lbs

Goal 9: Reach my HS Weight: 180 lbs!

Goal 10: Maintain that weight and stay fit (Good Muscle tone).

can you recommend a good bathroom scale ?
UPDATE: I bought a FitBit Aria scale and I love it. It relays my weight to fitbit.com. I also purchased a FitBit one which will track my activity. Should keep me very well monitored and I can see where my exercise gaps are.

Yes, i bought my digital scale at Ebay. It was like 20 dollars and it has worked for over 3 years. It doesn't have to be pricey to work well. The key is weighing yourself around the same time everyday (if you do everyday weighings) and in the same location (for me its the bathroom). that way you control the factors for measurement and you will get consistency in measurements.

Ok, first things first. Whatever you get, make sure its a digital scale. Something where you can see the weight in at least tenths of a lb/kg. Those old spring loaded dials are hard to read. Secondly, always weigh yourself at the same time everyday. Me, I prefer to weigh myself in the morning when I get up. That is why I keep mine in the bathroom. Brush teeth then weigh myself...Good luck in your search for a scale.

Chicken Breast. For me, a great protein source.

Congrats! I completely understand the CPAP thing. I use one and when you strap that thing on you feel like Darth Vader. It does provide a comfortable sleep but you hate that you have to wear it. Last night, I didn't wear mine and I don't think I snored at all. While my throat was kinda sore this morning, I don't feel like I was snorring. I cannot wait till I have hit my goal weight and do not need the CPAP anymore. Good luck to you and I hope you lose those final nine pounds!
