The Flopnuts Fatties Thread
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.

I'd join you but if i lost 180 pounds i would cease to exist.

Kick some ass there Flopnuts, and might i suggest a tight pair of underwear when you run.

DMAC 08-24-2012 10:01 AM

I would dude, but I am already in perfect physical condition.

If you want, drive up and watch me eat Chinese food later today and look at me for motivation.

Good luck Flopnuts.

HemiEd 08-24-2012 10:04 AM

Good luck to you nuts, hope it works out for you long term this time.

I would love to lose 30 pounds myself, but it gets harder the older you get.

Donger 08-24-2012 10:04 AM

Best of luck to you. Are you also going to stop drinking alcohol?

Bugeater 08-24-2012 10:06 AM

I went on a crash diet last night and lost about 40,000 posts.

RedNFeisty 08-24-2012 10:06 AM

I need to get in shape, not to lose weight but to keep up with my kids. I started running/walking Monday. I'll join you on the running. It's kicking my tail end, my gluts are on fire this morning.

I'm in on the weight loss deal, though I'm not exactly a good partner for you since I only want to lose 15 pounds. But still, the first 15 pounds is the hardest.

I won't be successful unless I drastically reduce my alcohol consumption. I'm not saying I'm going to quit, but I'm definitely going to detox for the rest of the year. It's necessary for my mind, as much as my body.

LTL 08-24-2012 10:07 AM
