It is tough when you feel like you are doing all the right stuff, but all your weight is still with you or God forbid it is going up! I know mentally that the muscle weighs more and I know we all plateau at some point, but we are a generation/society of instant gratification. It is hard to be patient! With that being said... here is your cyber kick in the butt... GET OFF the couch/chair and MOVE!!! Think about what you are putting in your body.... make it good healthy food not the empty(but tempting) sinful stuff you want! I will be your buddy and together we will no longer be bigger than we should!

Actually - kinda motivated myself there.... sort of... think I will take a walk around the office and deliver paperwork Smile

It's tough but LOGGING all you eat helps a lot. Even if its something you shouldn't eat, at least you know the calories and may choose something else next time...or not. Just don't give up : )

We have it tough, but just remember the largest roadblock to your success is yourself. I'm confident that you'll succeed, posting your pictures here to show us all how well you've tackled this issue, inspiring all of us to do the same.

The only thing I can unofficially advise is to limit your carbohydrate intake to at least 50% or less. You have to stay away from sweets or anything that stimulates your sweet tooth (including fake sugar), which is what gets you craving fattening food in the first place. Good luck and feel free to ask me or anyone in here that's lost weight and kept it off as a veteran of dieting.

Diet should always come first before fitness. As you'll see below, I lost all the weight without doing any exercise during the 6 months of my experimentation with the LCHF diet.

It's safe to say it was a successful personal experiment (and the only diet that's kept most of my weight permanently off, without exercise). The only diet that ever worked for me and saved me money because I ate less food, despite hundreds of diet fads out there that's trying to sell a magic lose-weight-quick pill.

Since January 1st this year alone, I've lost a total of 50lbs on diet alone. I've been meaning to go to the gym, but I'm too lazy, that's okay though, I still lost significant amounts of weight despite my lack of "activity."

My goal is to reach a weight of 175lbs by September this year and of course I'll inevitably integrate some form of light-exercise into my daily routine (still too lazy right now). I used to weigh 280lbs. It's been a long journey in my trial and error when it comes to weight loss, but it's been worth it.

I can now say I've conquered the repetitive yo-yo effect of my weight gain/loss history by taking a risk most people advised against, eat tons of fat and very little carbs and actually lose weight and keep it off.

Keep your head up and never quit and finally, never stop learning about nutrition. You must do more than just feed your body, you must also feed your mind.
