    Get you butt to the gym 3-4 times a week for 30 to 60 mins each session. The exercise not only burns cal but helps your mental well being, you feel better! If you can't do that then walk everyday for 20-60 mins. Exercise is key to getting your body reshaped.

    You can do this! I was the exact same way. Always yo-yo dieting and never lasting longer than a month. It was once I realized that I had to remove the word "diet' from my vocabulary and add 'lifestyle change'. There is no quick fix(I had to understand). Portion Control, moderation, substitution, healthier choices and exercise where the main keys that kept me going, motivated and successful.

    If I can do it, ANYONE can do it!

    Lifestyle Change is the key to your success, so you are on your way. I joined up about 35 days ago and am 22 pounds lighter just by logging my food and exercise. Set your micro goals and macro goals, use all the tools around you, surround yourself with positives and before you know it, you will begin living that Lifestyle effortlessly.

    Friend me if you like.

    I lost to 315 from 410 in 2012 using MFP so it does help! Unfortunately I gave up around the holidays like a dumb dumb and in the year since I have gained it all back. I am back in the saddle thanks to a loving wife and the will to not die young. Feel free to add me and I will do what I can to help motivate as well ^_^
