Well, I had a physical done, blood pressure is 142/82 and my cholesterol is high...

 

I'm 6' 250lbs.  I've gained 40 pounds in the last year!  Too much eating out, too much driving, plus I quit smoking.

 

So now starts the diet!  I hate this!  I did this once before a few years ago and lost almost 80lbs.  I felt great.  Then I went through a divorce and a bunch of crap.  Kind of stopped taking care of myself.  Then I started this traveling around job life that really makes it hard to eat right.

 

So now the excuses stop and eating right, and doing some walks during my lunch time I should be able to do it.

 

Come on will power!

If you have lost weight before, you know how its done. Cut out the donuts and biscuit/ gravy breakfast pizza, stay away from fast food and soda for lunch and eating until you pop at dinner.... mostly all of the fun stuff. Walk or jog, even when you dont want to, lots of water (1qt a day for every 50# of body weight). If losing weight was easy, there wouldnt be so many fat people

Good luck and start eating apples. Every time you feel like a snack grab a good apple. You'll accomplish two things. Loose weight and learn to hate apples.  :smilewink:

Losing weight is easy, I've lost over a thousand pounds in the last 30 years! Keeping it off, not so easy.

You are exactly right.

 

I am going to use the original version of weight watchers.  That's what I used the first time I went from 270 to 190.  It works great.  No guessing, no counting calories(just points and that's easy)  I am going to start walking at least 30 minutes during the day.

 

I already hate apples.  I found my best way to go is if I get hungry chug a bottle of water.  Teaches me to hate water! 

 

Thanks for the support guys!  I know I can do this.

First, Good Luck. Second, don't make a big project of it. Reduce the size of meals and the frequency of meals. Third, some kind of low impact excercise. Walking is excellant and can be fun if you pick nice places. If you make it a gentle lifestyle adjustment you will be able to stick with it easier and for longer. Good Luck, Rick

If only it was as easy to lose it as it was to find it. The last 10 years I have been able to keep it about the same weight.

Schwanns has some but they arent very good. Casey's has some, but its more of a scrambled egg and sausage. The best one had scrambled eggs, sausage, mushrooms and onions with gravy for pizza sauce, cant remember who makes them. I think it was hunts brothers but could have been made in house at a small town gas station.
