Hi there, Losers (LOL).
I'm Sam! I'm 34, and started using this site almost ten years ago to count calories. It worked really well, and I lost about 45-50lbs. I started at 250, lost the weight pretty quickly, and have been hovering between 200 and 210 ever since.
Fast forward to now, and (I don't wanna blame COVID, but...) my weight has jumped back up to 225ish. I saw that number, remembered how hard it was to lose the weight before, and signed back onto here. I also got in contact with a dietitian through my work benefits.
So far, I've lost about 10lbs from there. Ultimately, I'd like to get down to 150-160lbs, which would be about 100lbs less than I weighed initially. This seems like a huge amount, but seeing so many people on here being so successful has been inspiring.Struggles:
Exercise. I haven't found anything I really enjoy. I do go for walks a few times a week.
Eating snacks after dinner. The hours between dinner and bedtime are really tough.
Portion sizes and stopping eating when I'm full. Don't know if I'd call it a binge problem, but...
People around me eating whatever they want, while I try to stay within my calorie allowance.
I'm learning that the struggle is the journey. Looking for people to connect with on here with similar ambitions and challenges. Maybe we can help each other out! Add me, if any of this resonates with you. Looking forward to this chapter of my very long weight-loss book.

I found myself on Jan 11th at my most Loserest potential ever (heaviest) at 344.6 pounds and decided I was tired of panting when I got out of bed, or when I changed clothes and so on. I had lost my weight before a few decades ago (45 now) before I was married and met and courted my wife I was at around 212 pounds, so I can do it again right?

Last time I got down to a weight I am comfortable with, I gained it all back plus.
