Great for you. Betting you also just feel a lot better.

I lost mine several years ago and have done a pretty good job keeping most of it off, but have backslid a bit over this winter. Now have about 10-15 lbs I need to shed.

For me, it really is a function of what I put in my mouth. I have a sweet tooth that I sometimes have difficulty in curbing.......but it has to be not a diet, but a lifestyle change..

Yep... miles better. But yeah, society and advertising has pretty much convinced us that a diet is something you just "go on," when in fact EVERYONE is ALWAYS on a diet as a diet is just what you eat. So just make good choices and know what you're eating and how it will effect your body and weight. Education is a huge key. Also understanding that you need to have a 100% mindset to meet your goals.

I also am close to my goal of 200 also. Down to 207..from 248 this time last year. My gym opened up a functional fitness facility in January and Im going to 4 to 5 classes a week. Ive picked up muscle in places Ive never had it. Best part of this is that NO diet has been involved. Just exercise. I never thought Id like group exercise but Im having a blast with all the young people. Ive even surprised myself at 58 by being able to keep up with many of them. I did 556 ab mat sit ups in 30 mins last week. I could not have done a 100 a year ago.

Nice! Me too... I'm going to exercise classes three times a week. And I can now keep up with everyone in the class as well as being able to complete all the exercises properly.

I've also now been practicing for my first official 5K in May. I'm currently just over 33 minutes which is fairly decent for a 51 year old.

Good work.....Im not much of a runner but my wife has me signed up for a 5K also. It will be a very slow jogged attempt. My goal at the outset with the FF class was to be able to do 20 unbroken plank pushups. I could not do one at the outset. I did 7 last Friday..so..Im making progress...slowly.

Nice. I can comfortably do at least 10 now. I could not even do 1 a year ago.

What’s a plank push-up? Is that something done on an incline bench or something?

I assume he just means being on your toes and keeping you knees off the ground, and your body as parallel to the floor as possible. No butt or chest sagging.

RE: < 200
Forgot to post that I ran my first official 5K on May 12th. I surprised myself finishing 47th out of 407 who did the whole 5K run/walk. Finished 2nd in my age group with a new personal best time of 28:02.9.

I also started another total body challenge in April and am down another 16 pounds so far to 165. I have two more weeks to go and hope to lose another 8 before then so I can reach my next goal of 125 down total.

We started doing an additional training after my normal M-W-F exercise class where we focus on one part of the body (legs, abs, or arms) and just basically do rep after rep to the point of muscle failure. It's a beast, but so rewarding when done!

I decided on April 7, 2017 to change my life to a one of health. Giving up soda, added sugar and fast foods, for a diet of fruits and vegetables along with healthy proteins.

I also started walking...and a lot of it. For several months, while the weather was nice, I was averaging close to 20,000 steps a day. Of course my employer helps in this as I can get around $100 every quarter for tracking my steps and a few other daily things.

Anyway, I'm happy to report that for the first time in over 30 years I am now below 200 pounds and am less than 20 away form my ultimate goal to lose 100 pounds total.

Well done. Nothing is more important than your health. Its irreplacable. 04-cheers

That's the next goal... I'll likely have a new one once I reach that one :)

RWT, are you in a dieting plan? I dont know if you mentioned this or not. I did the Whole30 challenge (I dont know if I mentioned this either) at the beginning of February and ended up losing 35 lbs. I started at 197 and I am down to 162, which was my normal weight in the Marines. I have been able to keep it off for at least 3 months now.
