  • This may sound kind of gross but ... so this thing happens to some guys who are over weight specifically in the belly area... basically if you are sitting and lean foreward the pressure of your weight will cause your stalk and rocks to become numb. The whole general area will tingle and go numb... So anyways 15ish lbs down…
  • 10 days in and a 2xl shirt I have did not try to escape from my chest when I sat down.
  • A lot of fascinating responses. Thank you. It was about what I expected several from both perspectives. Perhaps there are more correlations to how we are choosing to use MFP and our relationship with our food. I have not completely cut out "junk" food as I frequently go to trail mix, chocolate chip granola bars etc for…
  • 1. Ive been shot and stabbed. 2. Im a major fan of the Harry Potter Universe 3. Ive moved 23 times.
  • The best advice I can give is that you have to stay busy lol. I know that seems like lame advice but work out, read, do a hobby that is not sitting in front of a tv or tablet or phone ... At least that works for me but mainly because Im a work from home dad so I do my work after my kid goes to bed so I m so side tracked I…
  • Congrats! On the home stretch. You look great.
  • I went from wearing 4x shirts and 48 pants to 34 pants and large shirts a few years ago... crept back up to 300 lbs wearing 2xl shirts and 40 pants... So at this point my mini goal is to wear 2x clothes comfortably again and work my way back down the scale and inches...
  • Nice work! Pretty soon you are going to be half of the size you were.... Put that into perspective... Congratulations on your success and I wish you the best as you keep going.
  • If I can offer an ounce of advice for the maintenance mode - which is a big reason why I am back here. I basically failed. Stick with the community. Stick with logging and dont go as high as your maintenance calories allow you. Your brain will do funny things like "I have enough for that and enough for this ..." and then…
  • Fantastic job. Yeah, those old photos are scary but they are also motivation.... I use to keep old photos around my office to remind me why I didnt need that Cheeseburger and fries haha... Keep it up. You are a new person now and you will continue to redefine yourself as your mind grows while your body shrinks.
  • Getting back on track was a great NSV for me. Ten days of logging. A few years ago I lost 150 lbs and gained back about half of that. Realizing that while others may see MFP as a crutch the concept of logging my food will probably be a permanent lifestyle for me. I tried just controlling my food eating like I normally do…
  • 8 days of successful tracking / eating after a lay over that caused me to gain back 60 lbs of the 150 I lost
  • You do not need to conform to societies ideas of breakfast. Just eat whatever you want. I went through a phase a few years ago where I hated eggs so in the morning I woke up ate a serving of Almonds and had coffee with a bit of cream in it. Then I fried up some bacon or ham and called it breakfast. I always kept a bag of…
  • Wearing a Star Wars t shirt, I made a wand holster for my Harry Potter wand, I also worked a bit on my EVA Foam Death Eater Mask. I purchased two blank baseball cap hats to iron press Hufflepuff and the Punisher patches to them. Oh yeah and I also watched Doctor Who today and listened to my John Williams soundtrack track…
  • I originally lost 125 lbs. Then I got off track and gained back about 40... I feel your pain I am back on now
  • I am wearing a lightsaber in public. I win.
  • There is not a whole lot of logic in the arguments to not buy used fitness clothing. I generally do not buy any used clothing, I do not know why I have just never considered it as a general overall cleanliness thing. I do find the repulsion to it fascinating though, specifically the people that are not willing to buy…
  • Great work ! Keep it up.
  • Yeah I am happy with my current calorie allotment so I will probably stick with it.
  • Mine was a 100000% shopping. I hated going to the XL stores. They were nice stores but way over priced and it was sad, wander around looking for 3x and 3xlt t shirts and size 48 pants. I got down to a large t shirt and size 34 pants. Recently Ive ballooned to 36/38 and XL T shirts so I am working on getting back down to…
  • Not playing sports I bloomed to 275 when I was playing sports I was at a solid 215 (benching a lot, squatting ridiculous weight etc) I am as of this morning 249. I bloomed to 370 two years ago when I started MFP...
  • Over a year and a half period I lost 135 lbs (gained some back recently) and I can tell you plateaus exist. I did a strict regiment when I was not losing as much as I was originally losing down to the same time, weight resistance, sleep cycles and I ate literally the same darned food for a month. I plateaued, I was pissed.…
  • I am glad the OP had these results. I on the other hand keep fighting off depression and therefore keep fighting the weight. I was at 370 - then got down to 215... Now I am back up to 255. I started back yesterday, and I am fighting through the lovely cleansing sickness...
  • At 370 I was easily a B cup ... At 225 I am probably still an A Cup Man boobs!
  • I am a good restaurant tipper but I have never heard of tipping for groceries… I have yet to have a properly bagged grocery trip… My uncle has been in the grocery business for 35 years or so and he explained to me the proper way and I have yet to see it done right… Maybe if it was done right at least once I would tip……
  • My vote: My opponent: Shark My choice of location: My backyard My choice of weapon: Lemon juice and tartar sauce ! Or oooo maybe a nice cornmeal batter and a beer !
  • Hey hey hey Lets not try to make men sound bad like vaginas and boobs are the most important things we find attractive in a woman... We like small mouths too... KIDDING I KID But seriously... My ideal body weight or shape in a woman ? I have dated a variety and have been attracted to a variety... Yep based on the range of…
  • I LIKE CAKE WHY ARE WE YELLING
  • Personally I kind of enjoy conflict so I am of no advice here... "So how did you lose all the weight? Surgery... Lap band ?" No just diet exercise and I use the spike method "Oh is spike some sort of drug?" Yes, you see I go find a really fast runner and I spike them with my soccer cleat and then run as fast as I can...…
  • nirvana was over rated I never did get the fascination with them... was it posthumous love for a guy who blew his brains out with a shot gun? Foo Fighters > Nirvana and I am not a huge fan of the Foo Fighters... It is not that I disliked Grunge ... oh wait it is that I disliked Grunge...
