You and I have about the same body size/composition I think. I believe you are quite a bit taller, though.

I didn't. I just know that he's outnumbered.

I'm going to be an attention whore on this. For those of you who don't know me, I'm a morbidly obese individual. I grew up overweight. Like, as long as I can remember. In the beginning of 2008 a weight loss thread started. I decided for the first time in my life I was going to go see a doctor and try and take off some weight. I was 450lbs.

I learned how incredibly ignorant I was to health, fitness, and food. Over the course of a year and a half or so, I lost 185lbs. I went from someone who had never been able to run a mile in his life, to someone who ran 30-40 miles a week. I have a framed picture of myself completing my first 5k, and it was one of the proudest moments in my life.

In August of 2010 my wife and I decided to move to Branson, MO from Seattle, WA. I've lived here before, and wanted to come back. I've never really drank in my life because I come from a long line of alcoholics. I chose a different poison, and always smoked pot. (Yeah, lost 185lbs with the ****ing munchies every day. Go me!)

Needless to say, I started drinking when I got down here because the pot was horrible, and eventually stopped running. When I stopped running, I started gaining weight. Today, 2 years later, I weigh approximately 380lbs. I say approximately because frankly, I would have to find a freight scale to weigh myself.

Today is the day it all begins again. I thought long and hard about putting myself out there on this board, because it has changed so much since I did this the first time. But it was such a great release for me, and an insane source of positive encouragement, and valuable information that I decided to do it.

I also know that all that weight I lost inspired a few others on this board to do it as well. My understanding is that they have all kept that weight off. I'm hoping to replicate those achievements with some current fatties out there. Let's band together! Let's learn, and fight, and be who we want to be, rather than who we are right now.

I'm going to post before and after pictures in the next post. My before and after is a little different though. I'm going to post pictures of me at 265, and one of me today. I look forward to posting my after-after picture at the end of the year. I am going to lose 100lbs+ before this year is over. My goal, is to weigh 250lbs by January 1st. That would be the same weight I was at in the 8th grade. Public accountability is a big part of why I was so successful before I think. The idea of putting this up and being the same or worse by year's end is disgusting. I believe it will help me. I will be bumping this thread perhaps on a daily basis. It worked the last time.

Who's with me? Who is ready to put in the blood, sweat, and tears necessary to change your life forever? If I'm alone, I'm alone. But I hope some of you will join me in the battle of the bulge. We'll call it "Custard's last stand"! And to anyone who wants to talk shit to me, about me, or whatever, bring it on. It fuels me.


The Fatties:

Mr. Flopnuts
Mr. Plow

You are awesome Mr Flopnuts or whomever you are.


I'm in good shape, though a recent surgery has left me refraining from normal work outs until just this week, good luck to you all.

Otherwise, I'll just click to check the status of everyone's keto from time to time.

There isn't a lot to talk about, it is mostly calorie counting. WW is just an easier way to keep track.

Buck 08-24-2012 12:23 PM

For the record, I'm in.

Dr. Johnny Fever 08-24-2012 12:27 PM

You go Flop! Good luck!

Yeah, it's pretty easy if you aren't sure about something.

Gotta have a food scale though, IMO.

Exercise sucks, so I make it fun. I play soccer twice a week for 2-3 hours at a time at Lake Country. That's my exercise. Beats the lame gym.

How do you plan to teach yourself healthy eating habits?

It's really just discipline. I know what to do. It's applying it every day, and remembering that a mistake doesn't have to be compounded into this. Obviously there was some depression and things going on, but that's just not a good enough excuse. It is what it is.

Also a tip for everyone.

Diet isn't supposed to be defined as "the food you eat when you want to lose weight." It should be defined as "the food you eat."

The point is that you need to make a lifestyle change, not just go on a "diet."

I don't have any idea what to eat to remain in keto. I guess it's probably better than juicing, I just ****ing love potatoes and pasta. But if I'm juicing I don't get those things, I may as well dig in on some sausage and eggs. :D

I'm the guy who would make moms blush when I went to a friend's house because I was asking for seconds and thirds (thank god my metabolism is high as hell, which is probably one reason I should stay out of these threads... because I haven't ever had to deal with the shit that other people do as far as weight loss). When I travel, I travel to eat, researching the restaurants I'll eat at for months in advance. I spend an average of 1-2 hours in the kitchen an evening cooking. In short: I'm a foodie.

Fasting, though, has allowed me to just ignore all the shit meals and calories I was taking in out of habit and really focus on enjoying and doing the food right during my eating periods. It also has allowed me the ability to splurge on occasion when traveling or during holidays with the confidence that I can get the pounds off again if necessary.

But yeah, I freaking love to eat. But I'm also an all or nothing guy. If I get started eating something, then it's really hard for me to stop until it's all gone. IF I start in on chocolate chip cookies or cake or something that someone brings to work, then I'll probably have multiple servings, not one. It's much easier for me to never start eating the food than to stop once I do eat it.

My wife, on the other hand, does small snacking portions (handfuls of almonds, piece of fruit, slice of cheese, etc...) all day long with no problem.

Will you do me a favor, and explain your fasting regimen? I did VERY well with fasting but I'd like to get an idea of how often you do it, and how long you go. TIA. And please, come into this thread. God bless you for not having to deal with this, but the fact is, you're supportive as ****, you're very positive to hear from, and ****, you're Trent Green's BIL. :fire:

Me too. Donated to my buddy before I moved. Oops. They were a little big on him at the time, and he's filled them up. I still have my size 52 shorts and 6xl shirt that I first weighed in at 450. I'll never get rid of those.

Ceej 08-24-2012 02:46 PM

Count me in, Mr. Nuts.

However, can we go with Flopnuts' Husky Individuals?


I'm at 286.

Shooting for 250.

Mr. Flopnuts 08-24-2012 02:48 PM

Hey, I am a (UW) Husky nut, but sorry, we're all fatties here. We embrace it, because we know we have the power, ability, and knowledge to fix it. :)
