My name is Jim. I'm 43 years old and living in Pittsburgh and I've been fighting weight problems my whole life. I have been as light as 158 and as heavy as 230. I have my father's curse: a pot belly...

When he passed away in 2007, I ballooned to my heaviest, so I decided now is the time to slim/trim down once and for all, especially for my daughter.

All the regimented diets are too hard to follow (I've tried them all), and the easiest way is simply this:
Calories burned > Calories consumed = Weight Loss

Really simple, but some foods (especially pizza and beer for me) just taste so darn good, and no matter what any one says exercise is not fun.

Lifestyle changes, good support, and not beating myself up over moments of weakness will get me through it.
