Yes it's true I have finally had enough of all this weight that has been on me for the majority of my life. For those of you that know me I am one big man. I have always used "being tall" as an excuse (I am 6'7"ish) and in the past I have avoided threads like these like the plague. But this last Friday I dusted off my old scale and I weighed in at an alarming 311lbs. I stood there and thought about my two young daughters and wife and I realized that if I keep ballooning like this I may not be around long to see their long lives. I did the math and I at times was eating over 4,000 caloires a day!!! So I got this great app called "Lose it" for my smartphone. After just watching my calories and some mild exercising (I am in no shape to do anything rough) for 5 days I have already lost 4.6lbs (weighed in at 304.4). My short term goal is to lose 30lbs. Long term is to lose 100lbs. This is very hard as most of you know but with the support from my famliy and my Icrontic family I know I can do it! I will keep you poseted on my progress.
