On June 1st I decided to quit being a fatass. When I quit clogging I gained about 30 pounds. I'm too fat to start clogging again right now, so I started walking and practicing portion control and so far I have lost 15 pounds! It was actually pretty easy. The greatest anxiety I experience is when I load my plate for dinner I only take about half what I used to take. It seems like I need to get more food while I can, and I find it difficult to walk away with room on my plate. I have had lots of setbacks, but the general trend has been headed in the right way. These next three months will be tough, but I hope to be a fit 160 by next June. Right now at 180 pounds I'm ahead of schedule!

So are you gonna start clogging again when you reach your goal weight?!

I'm doing the same thing right now. My mom and I were talking about weight, and working out, and all that stuff, and she went "After you had James, you looked great. You didn't look like you'd had a baby at all." and I went "Oof...", so now I'm up at the gym in my sub as often is I can get there (I shoot for five days a week. It ends up being more like three or four). I'm hoping to drop a clothing size by my grandpas birthday party the end of October. But right now I'm kind of stuck. lol!

I'm in the same boat. When I quit teaching a few years ago, I gained about 20 pounds. Now I've lost 10, with 10 more to go.

FU old age!!

Congrats dangslow! Weight loss is a hard road to travel, as I'm going down it myself. Though you guys generally zip down that road on a Porsche and women get a bicycle. *shakes fist* Still, that's celebration-worthy! Great job!

Congrats!! I'm on the road to try and lose another 9kg. I've been really ill with some ovarian cysts, kidney issues and the like, as wel as just low self esteem. I weighed myself the other day, and I'd lost 2kg and just had a spray tan. Its amazing how differant and better I felt!

Good luck with reaching your goal weight!
