    I thought about it but I'd rather not do it, at least at the moment. But its considerably noticeable in person.

    ...though I can't figure out how to get the last 15 off my belly. That's one stubborn area, I'll tell ya.

    Congratulations! I started dieting in January this year and lost 45 lbs by June. Stay strong and keep the weight off. I try to fluctuate now in a 6-8 lbs margin and so when the weight starts creeping up towards that 8 lbs I just take it easy on the portion size for a couple days. So far it is working like a charm.

    A new coffee addiction certainly helped as I was drinking about 4-5 cans of soda a day.

    It was definitely intentional. :)

    Was 226 as of New Year's. Now I'm 155. ...goal though is to get rid of my belly, which I'm still working on. In clothes I now look skinny. I suppose I have time before "bathing suit season". :oops:

    Congrats! Yes, keeping it off is going to the the real test. I think the first 50 came off in the first 5 months, but the last 5 months has been much slower for me. I've been using the Lose It app, which has been extremely helpful tracking things.

    You did not have 70 pounds to lose :?

    I had gained a bit since you kindly treated to drinks a few years back but luckily my face shows it last. :) It crept up and then accelerated over the last 2 years, so I decided to get tough on myself. Plus I cut off my "member", but that only accounts for 12 pounds of weight and girth.

    Three years ago I was around 268 (i was too nervous about getting on a scale), now I'm 198 but I need a new wardrobe. I also decided to become a vegetarian for the second time and this time it has stuck and the no meat lifestyle is just fine. I can't seem to gain weight though or is it that I'm just getting real old?

    Congrats!

    I've taken off 25-30 lbs. this year myself. I started running and trying to eat just a bit healthier. All it really takes is consistency. The running helps because I can watch my progress getting faster and being able to run longer distances. I sign up for a 5K race every other month and that gives me something to "train" for.

    I've plateaued a bit in the last month or so, but would like to ultimately lose about 10 more.
    The only people we should try to get even with...
    ...are those who've helped us.

    Oh along with becoming a vegetarian I rode my road bike all up and down State Road 7. Averaging about 30-40 miles a ride. However last week I crashed and snapped off my derailleur. Man that piece of equipment alone was $325. 8 years ago I can just imagine what it costs now. :shock:

    One good thing no belly or excess fat....working on strengthening my quads for my knee and tightening my abs, man it's a lot of work.

    Thanks bb!

    My weight crept up each year over the last decade but would never go down, last couple of years most noticeably.

    When I use the "lose it" app to track calories, I actually do plug in "drumming" under exercising which burns about 210 calories per hour. My fiance is probably skeptical about the drumming/calories feature on this app. :D

    Congrats on being coming vegetarian g/p! I've been trying to ride to work a bit, but it's nowhere near the mileage you're doing. Your bike sounds expensive - I think mine cost me all of $325.

    I'm 5'8". I recall having a belly in 2000 at 150, so I'm just wondering if I'll always have one to some extent. I've heard that you can't focus burning fat from a specific spot (like if I did situps, I would just build muscle under the belly).

    it's relatively easy to lose weight ... it's keeping it off that is hard ... mostly because of the changes to one's metabolism ... even tho you lose a significant amount of weight - you have to continue to eat less calories to keep it off ... that's why so many people who get heavy end up yo-yoing with their weight ... you kinda have to pick a healthy weight you want to be at and stick to a plan that will keep you there ... the yo-yoing is not good for the body ...

    Very true.
    The only people we should try to get even with...
    ...are those who've helped us.

    Right 'round the corner could be bigger than ourselves.
