Start Weight:(01 Sep 10) 276.4 lb
Current Weight:(04 Aug 13) 234.0 lb
Goal Weight:195.0 lb
following: technut's own diet
performance: gaining 1.5 lb a week

Woo Hoo!! I've managed to drop approximately 75 pounds since 7/10.
Given my body type I don't think I'm going to lose much more (also can't afford a whole new closet of clothes with this economy).
Now I'll get busy getting what I have, toned.

I lost it all by (in no particular order):
1) Reducing my caloric intake to at/or below my recommended daily level
2) Making it a priority to eat foods that are healthy and low in fat
3) Drastically cutting out/down on processed foods
4) Limiting night time snacks to fruits, yogurt (foods I believe digest easily)
5) PORTION CONTROL!!
6) Not denying myself foods I like but enjoying in moderation and in balance
7) Reading nutrition labels on everything when at the grocery store
8) Eating slower and enjoying each and every bite
9) Changing my overall outlook/attitude to food
10) Recording my weight every day (after the morning shower)
11) Using the Fatsecret App on my phone religiously (It's my daily video game)
12) Treating holidays and dinners out/with friends like any other day
13) It's become a game to create tasty meals that are 500 calories or less (usually they come in under 400 calories and still fill me up)

I highly recommend the "Eat This, Not That" series of books put out by Men's Health. Tons of tasty recipe's and helpful tips on eating healthy.

The amazing thing is, once my attitude to food changed it was way easier than I would have thought!!

Go Losers!!

Problem after update on 11/15/12
After updating Fatsecret on my HTC Evo 4g I cannot enter a new weight value.
Usually I press the menu button while on the weight summary page, but now I get no response from the menu button.
I have done a power reset, but no change. Please help.

Has anyone else tried the "Cranberry Addictives" from Costco? ...
M-M-M !!
They are TASTY and only 100 calories/package.

They've replaced the Biscotti I sometimes have with my morning coffee.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
Every morning before getting dressed.
Even though you may see your weight "Yo-Yo" (hopefully not too much), on the days that the weight has decreased I have a bigger smile while drinking my coffee.

And using the Fatsecret Android App is my daily "Video Game", I check it constantly throughout the day to make sure I'm following my expectations and to strengthen my resolve.

Funny
Tell him you've already lost 200lbs of fat, bloated, useless, dead weight (i.e. HIM) and that you couldn't be happier with how things are and have no desire to re-experience the past. Then go out with your girlfriends and enjoy life by looking for what's beyond the horizon...
