    I know I might get killed for asking lol but I've dropped 10 pounds in two weeks and I'm wondering if anyone else here is trying to lose weight.

    If you have (or are) dropping lbs, let me know what your diet/exercise is. I'd love to hear some feedback.

    Over the past two years I've dropped about 100 pounds. I didn't exactly start exercising I just started eating "healthier." I made a change in my eating habits; cut out the soda, If I REALLY craved it I'd get a Perrier (I realized it was the carbonation in my throat I really liked not necessarily the sugar.) I drink about 4-6 liters of water a day on average I made sure I started eatingy greens. Lots of spinach and kale, also cooked at home a lot more instead of eating out. I'm still around 300 lbs but I feel good. I love how I feel now compared to myself at the 400lb mark. I'm still just as sexy though.

    I lost 75 pounds in 2009 and kept it off. Now, in 2012, I've gained 50 pounds back. I've quit drinking that damn Mt. Dew. I'm going to start the P90X stuff in a few days. I'm ready to lose it for good. My brother is in the army, so he's giving me advice straight from his nutritionist.

    There's an iphone app called tap & track that does a pretty good job of calorie counting, without a subscription cost or any sanctimonious bs.

    Heh... I lose weight all too easily, thanks to the leg muscles from years of being a pedestrian. I'm approaching 250, and trying to gain! :) :eat1:

    Brave posts, guys! Very impressive too. BHMs wanting to loose a few to be more comfortable in their own skins, while not getting all hollywood-obsessive & remaining big & handsome = some serious respect!

    I am having some serious issues with my weight; at least as far as my happiness with it goes. I think I am going to try to take some of it off.

    I've lost a bit over a hundred pounds. I've always been strong and active but I've found myself on the cusp of some very serious health issues in the past two years, so I weighed the scientific evidence and had gastric bypass surgery 10 days ago. I'll never be thin, but i hope to avoid a lifetime of crippling and fatal disease. It was a very tough decision but I'm confident and hopeful :)

    Best of luck to everyone struggling.


    I've lost 365 in five years. No surgery. It's possible. Do what you think is best for YOU but don't do anything stupid or extreme like I did.

    I am very curious with regards to losing weight. have you found the ones that were interested in you when you were larger and now that you lost weight do you find they do not talk to you much or avoid you all together?

    Im trying too but it's a hell of a fight, I have had medical advice and was told I was'nt eating or drinking enough, what I was eating was no good for me I needed to change my diet fullstop and increse exercise . Originally this was going well but then i got a dvt in my leg and cellulitus and became deeply depressed that put a stop to things but I am starting to get better and I do eat better now and hopefully the weight will start to come off again.

    I've recently realized that I don't want to lose weight, per se.
    As it turns out, I actually really like being a big guy.
    What I don't like is being fat, that is to say huge and not fit in any way.
    So lately I've taken up an exercise regimen intending to convert my adipose into muscle mass.
    Not trying to go roidfreakmode but I am going for that strongfat aesthetic.

    Still a big dude, but not a blubbery mess which I personally feel like I am right now.

    My ex-husband didn't want me to lose weight even though my life depended on it. He became controlling and the more weight I lost, the worse it got until he assaulted me and I left him. We were married ten years. Marital counseling didn't help because he refused to talk. So now I go to therapy alone and am much happier and healthier without him.

    Also, an ex-boyfriend who've I've remained close to for 15 years isn't happy about my weight loss and has virtually stopped talk to me.

    but one must also face that will be or may lose some long time friends. Everybody has their likes and dislikes and I cannot fault them but I also think you could be large and healthy if you work out or at the very least walk everyday which I do. Let your body dictate what is a good weight for ya and you will possibly stablize at that weight.
