    have you guys thought about weight watchers? My brother has lost 40+lbs on it. He loves it because he still gets to drink his beer and eat like a normal person. If you have an iphone, it is really easy to do.

    Keep up the good work!

    I don't own a Taco anymore.
    I try to keep breakfast around 500cal, lunch at 500, and dinner anywhere between 100-400. The best advice I can give is to keep yourself busy, and your mind off food. I work 55+ hours/week, so it helps me keep my mind off the munchies.

    Full rebuild short of machine work, mean green motherfucker! Lime green block, hand-polished valve cover, and stickers! Too broke for real mods right now. Stonewall is my baby, but he's also a work truck.

    Same boat here- 5' 1' and 89 pounds. You'd think I'd beef up some since I'm working construction, but I haven't seen any weight change. :p

    We're pulling for you, OP! Keep it up!!

    If you are trying to lose weight stick to water. Treat food as an energy source. Your body needs the nutrients. Stay away from restaurants. Prepare the food yourself using natural ingredients. Cut portion size down. When your body says, "I'm hungry", eat sometning but don't sit down and devour a bag of potato chips. Snack on raw peanuts or almonds, carrots, celery, etc.

    This is number one on my list of ways to keep the weight off. If I am sitting and watching TV I am eating.

    Join Mixed Martial arts. Your a big guy, try out grappling or wrestling. Jiu Jitsu ,thai boxing, or traditional boxing. Helped me loose fifty pounds over a course of the year. I am in the best shape of my life, always have energy and can defend myself on the street and on the mat. I am only a year younger, but was battling food problems, and sadly, doing drugs. Joined MMA and my mentality changed about life. Strength, core, and endurance is what I work on every day and see results. Take it easy at first (if you consider this an option), but stick with it. Not only will you know how to defend yourself on your feet and on the ground, you will have piece of mind. Good luck to you!

    woah woah woah....don't assume I gave up because I stopped posting?!?!?! haha

    I'm so busy these days, I'm not even on TW as much as I used to be. I just got laid off from work and I'm very busy looking for another job.

    As far as my weight loss, I plateaued for 2 weeks, trying everything I could to break free from it. I eventually started dropping some pounds again after Thanksgiving. I'm currently at 29 lbs weight loss. I need to find the time to exercise more if I want to reach my goal. That's for sure.

    More good news, it's been 6 months since I quit smoking, and I feel great!

    Down 35lbs. It's proving to be much harder than I thought at first, which was kind of expected. The holidays took a little toll on me, I gained 2lbs that I had to lose again. Started using my Taco to get me to mt. biking spots off the grid, forcing myself to ride to get back to my truck rather than just biking around town.

    I need to keep changing it up. When I get comfortable with a workout, I can see the results start to flatline a bit.

    Still on track, may but I may have to push back the date a bit to get to my goal weight.

    Started a new job (was unemployed for a month after being laid off) and it's taking a lot out of me. But I'm trying to do my best. The best thing that has come of it is the location of my new office being 5 minutes from back bay Newport Beach. There is a 10 mile loop I like to bike along there, and with the 8:00am traffic in the mornings, it's convenient to get up at 6:00am and bike the loop, shower and change at the 24 hour fitness next to my office, grab a protein bar and head into the office.

    Still got my goal in my sights!
