Goal Weight:190.0 lb
following: jmb3450's own diet
performance: losing 0.8 lb a week

Male, 57 years old, married, 7 kids between my wife and myself, 4 grandkids, was very athletic and in great shape in my youth but years of poor eating habits resulted in coronary artery disease, 5 stents in my arteries, and pre-diabetic blood sugar levels. December 2013 I fell off my roof onto an asphalt driveway causing some back injury.

The good news - May 1, 2014 I got to the point where I was ready to seriously take control of my health and since have been working on eating better, exercising, and losing weight. I’ve gone from having difficulty walking due to my back injuries, to being able to walk with ease and jog with little pain. Lab work on my blood is much better than before, cholesterol levels now excellent and blood sugar is in the normal range. My initial goal weight is 190lbs, where I'll re-evaluate and maybe set a new goal.

Congratulations on your success to this point. It sounds like you have the right attitude, keep up what you've been doing and you'll reach your goals. Welcome to the site, it's a great place, and for me keeps me grounded and on track when I need it most.

Nice pics everyone! And it's funny how our perspectives change, or at least mine has. Years ago when pictures were taken I hated them, thought I looked fat in a lot of them. I see them now and I think "Man I'd love to look like THAT again."
