    I was never real fat, but over the last 10 years I've gained some weight. I am about 6-1 and in highschool weighed a whopping 150 lbs and could not gain no matter what. Once highschool ended I started working out and was a steady 170ish for a while. Moved out on my own, turned 21, started drinking beer, had a steady GF and managed to work my way up to 210! Got back into gym and diet mode, and I was pretty steady at 185-190 for the last 5 years. I felt good, thought I looked good...

    Well, I hit 200# again and clothes were tight. A little pissed I decided to re-vamp my diet. Cut down on carbs, more protein, eat more times a day and, cut the high sugar fruits, etc. My workouts did not really increase, but I did make them a little longer and more intense.

    My Goal was to get a 6-pack by summer, I had a month to do it. I lost 15 lbs incredibly fast...like in two weeks fast. I have since been losing 2 lbs a week steady. I weighed in sunday and I was down to 170#. A weight I thought I would never see again. I feel great, look good and I am as strong as I was when I was 200. That is a 30 lb drop in 3 months. 30 lbs of FAT. How sick is that.

    The drawback is nothing fits. I mean even my shoes are loose now. My pants have gone down 2 sizes, my shirts have gone from Larges to Mediums. I have relaxed my diet slightly the last 2 weeks and I STILL have been losing 2lbs a week. I can't believe it. I still don't have a six-pack, but it is soooo close lol. I am just happy I don't have the belly I did in spring.

    I know no one probably cares, but I am pretty stoked about it. I don't really want to get under 170, but if it keeps coming off I don't know what to do.

    That's my story.

    I think the clothes are not a big deal, to be perfectly honest. :thumbsup: That's a good sign, congratulations on your weight loss. Dropping pounds always feels great.

    Gees Roy I'm the same height as you but weigh 245! Don't sweat losing too much weight now at 29-as soon as I reached 30 yrs old my metabolism slowed down. I'm 50 now and trying to lose weight. I am disabled but manage about a pound a week which aint bad. You still have that furnace in ya working fulltime.

    Thanks guys. I think once I hit 30 I will be ok now that I am back on track! It seemed to had slowed down when I hit 21. It just happened to be the same time I moved out on my own too. I guess I was just eating wrong the whole time. Who woulda though that frozen pizzas and cereal could be so bad for you when they taste so good!
