Im 35 years old and I started at 293 pounds. I have never weighed this much in my entire life. I am a former college football linebacker at UCF and my playing weight was 215lbs. That is my goal. I have lost 30 lbs in two months (Im 263 lbs today). Im figuring Ill be 250lbs by cruise time.
What I did to lose the weight:
portion control- no more large portions
Changed what I eat- I eat lots of fish and chicken and veggies. no sweets, fried food, and very little red meat. I snack on carrots and celery with light sour creme ranch dip. And rice cakes (30 calorie kind)
Exercise- I jog or at least fast walk 1-2 miles 3 times a week.
I use a nike running GPS app to track my exercise and I use the my fitness pal app to track my calories.
Losing weight isnt complicated at all. Its one of the simplest things on earth. The hard thing is keeping on the diet. After a while you dont even crave the bad foods anymore.
It sure feels good to be able to sit down and not be uncomfortable because my belly being tight on my pants.
