123 pounds down now

JosephfunkJosephfunk Member, Premium Posts: 31 Member Member, Premium Posts: 31 Member
hey all i haven't posted in a while so as the title states I've now lost 123 pounds in a little over a year. Im not done yet but I'm in a great groove at this point so I know i will succeed. I probably have 50 pounds or so left but as I go I reevaluate my goals. I started over 350 pounds a day currently sit at 228 I'm 5'7 so still a bit heavy for my height but overall feeling great and looking forward to seeing what year two brings.

    Good for you!!! Looks like you have a young child - your endeavors will allow you to do so many more activities and sports with him; and, watch him graduate, get married and maybe one day bless you with Grandchildren. Keep focused and working on your goals. You've got this!

    When i started i was prediabetic with stage 2 hypertension so I began keto and used that for about 5 months. After that point everything was in check and since I started hitting the weights I started to add back in carbs. I eat pretty much everything at this point but I still avoid sugar for the most part and occasionally cut carbs and switch eating styles depending on mood. I never eat back the exercise calories the app says you can have because when i would the scale wouldn't move. Be patient and consistent even if you have a slip up brush it off and get back after it.

    Congratulations, you are doing very well. Love your positive mindset. I am same height as you, started out with 108lbs to lose, still have 68lbs to go. Like you I am determined!

    its a good place to be compared to the starting point and the little things people can do movement wise become a big deal when you can do them lol. Keep it up and feel free to add me.
