Though I weigh 270 I am not all fat, I got on a weight bench last fall having not looked at one since high school (15 yrs ago) and put up 250. Realistically my long term goal is to get down to around 220, thats where I would like to be. right now I am looking to get to 250 so that I can actually accomplish a goal. The only real exercise outside of work I do is hiking, and I hike a lot (normally 5-10 miles at a time, sometimes 25-30 miles in a day) but work has been so busy and its rained so much this year I havent had time to hike much

I go to the gym and do moderate weight training 3x per week and actually enjoy it. My work has me sitting on my ass much of the time, so the physical activity feels good.

I like to weigh around 190. I can creep up to just shy of 200 pretty easily, but as long as I keep lifting and reduce my food intake just a tiny bit, I drop right back down to 190 to 192. Controlling food intake is the main thing, but the weights stoke the metabolism. I like to eat, and eat a lot. Not junk, but after a workout or a dirt bike ride, I can eat 2 pounds of turkey spaghetti, no problem

Moderate exercise, moderate food. My theory is don't kill myself in the gym and don't starve or eat too much (lean towards eating too much, like most of us). The body, for better or worse, wants to hang onto it's current weight (setpoint). This makes it hard when losing, but lets you get away with some indiscretion here and there once you reach target weight.

Its been about 3 weeks since my last post on this thread, I am now down to 262, a loss of 8 pounds. My goal is 250 by the end of the year, after I hit that I will be setting new goals.

On March 9th I started my new job at Chrysler. I build the gas and diesel engines that go into the Jeep Wrangler. I weighed 285 lbs that day. It is now 6 months later and I weigh 234 lbs. I have not changed my diet, have not started working out, literally no change in lifestyle other than going from 6 months of unemployment to standing on my feet 10 hours a day building engines. Heaviest thing I lift at all at work is a starter. Crazy how just being mobile can attribute to so much weight loss. I would imagine doing a lot of walking would have the same effect. Just thought I would share.

Not much weight loss but I did managed to ride the 129/180/60 loop Saturday. Even rode from the rockpile back up 60 for a few added miles.

Oh yeah, it was on a bicycle

Congrats on the job and weight loss!

Uh oh, hit the 220 lb. mark. My wife is an Arbonne consultant so we're both starting the 28 day detox program. My goal (not in 28 days but a little longer) is to be under 200. We need better life insurance and I'd like to be closer to my "ideal" weight for this. Will report how things go. Stay tuned.

I've been fluctuating between 185lbs - 195lbs for going on 25 years now. Can't ever seem to get any higher, and never lose enough to drop any lower.

I know I could cut out the brownies...but I won't.

True, true, Johnny. I just like food too much. Maybe if the effin' farmers figured out how to grow chocolate flavored carrots....

Big changes on the horizon.

Some of this may be stress - are you pressured to turn out high numbers constantly? I remember losing 5 pounds a week when I was stressed by heavy work loads at work - metabolism would ramp up.

And I was lifting nothing heavier than a pen.

Well, I am still stuck at around 178-179. But I have some new motivation - I was out in Santa Barbara two weeks ago and my cousin's know it all husband was telling me all about his new high tech bike and how fast it (and he) are. He was practically daring me to bring my bike out so we could ride together and he can kick my ass.

I don't mind being slower than my friends. But not my smart ass relatives.

So I need to get down to 160 by next summer -- at that weight, I can sprint away from him on Old San Marcos Road, up the Santa Ynez Mountains, and leave him for dead.

If I can get down to 170 or so by year end that wil be a big step. Then the rest can come from increased riding in the spring.

I expect you all to hold me to it! Don't let those young whippersnappers show me up!

I've sort of hit a plateau, but I fluctuate 3-5lbs per day, which is most likely just fluid. Even after Thanksgiving and Christmas gluttony, I'm staying within that spread. Looking forward to dry weather (I like the cold) so I can be more active outdoors again..

I was getting geared up and about to restart the effort... a year ago Thanksgiving, I weighed in at 195... by June, I was down to the high 160s... goal was 165... hit it... but the next goal was just somewhere in the mid to high 150s... didn't get there.

back to 178 this morning... can't do my workouts with a bum shoulder, but the diet is restarting... I'll add the workouts soon...
