    Thanks again, all! One thing I've noticed about being the smaller size me is that warning signs of veering in the wrong direction come sooner. Back in the old me days, I could lose of gain 15 pounds and it was pretty unnoticeable. Now..3-5 pounds really show. Heck, if I eat a single particularly carb heavy meal, it's obvious as I begin to jiggle again and my ab definition begins to wash out.

    Cupcake, It has been 6 months since I lost all of my weight. It is very easy to lose focus and start putting the weight back on. When I want to eat a cookie or some other junk, I start thinking about how hard I work out and quickly realize it isn't worth it. My goal is to eat clean 90% of the time and allow 10% for me to enjoy a treat (pizza, chicken wings, etc.) in moderation. I started 265, now around 205 (I'm 6'1 13% BF). My plan is to go on a cut for the summer and drop a quick 10 lbs. For me, that could be done by simply reducing my daily calorie intake by 500. Most importantly, make sure you are getting all of your daily macro nutrients through whole foods.

    - I agree 100%. The other fact is that being unhealthy is more likely to reduce your lifespan more than a random act of violence.

    I was at about 28% body fat last summer and decided to start eating better and exercising a lot more. I was down to 18% body fat about three months ago and haven't check since then, but I probably lost a few more percent. I doubt I'll ever be back to the 11% body fat that I was in high school though. Another benefit is that eating more fruits and vegetables has been great and my energy levels are higher than ever.

    Congratulations to Cupcake for changing his life for the better.

    That's really true. I quit soda four months ago and I don't miss it anymore. I used to drink a six pack a day starting at 6 am. Very bad I know. My stomach finally had enough and I had to stop.

    Good job cupcake. I'm trying to eat better as well and I hope to start exercising soon. So far I just dropped meat from my diet. All vegetables all the time and I've managed to lose 20 pounds since January 1st.

    - I'm not Ponchsox, but I like "Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard" and "Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein" (Available at Walmart). They both taste good and are great after a workout. I usually put it in a blender with almond milk and a banana.

    Whey is probably the most popular, but I prefer a blend of whey and casein. Whey is available for quick utilization, while casein is more like "slow release" for a steady supply. You can find it for shakes but it's hard to find in bar form which is most convenient. Even better - real food. I'd often rather stop by McDonalds for a chicken sandwich.

    Ponchsox what protein powder and bars do you like if you don't mind more asking?
    Best protein bars- Quest Bars (hands down for low cals, sugar free, 20g protein, good flavors)
    Best whey protein- Myofusion is best value, XF UP Peptide Cinnamon Roll best flavor (more expensive)

    Check out the forum on Bodybuilding.com. There are a ton of threads on these topics.

    What a great feel good story. I am 30% of the way to losing 100lbs. My goal is to be 210 lbs at a nice steady pace. I've lost 30 lbs since Jan. 1, 2012. I read a book called WHEAT BELLY and it is amazing how much better I already feel just by following the suggestions in the book. I'm a believer wheat and sugar are the devil! I've started going to the gym and can pound out 2 miles on the treadmill or 44 min. on the eliptical. Did you ever hire a trainer or just start making changes your self.

    Thanks...it feels awesome. It's tough at first...detox your body from sugar and simple carbs and it will get much easier. That means a couple of weeks of suffering withdrawals and cravings like a heroin junkee, but it's so worth it. Yes, just one will hurt. It will restart the cycle of wanting more carbs. Like STLTiger just mentioned, you'll feel great once you're off that crap for just a short while.

    Congrats on a great start! You're farther along then I was...my first run I lasted 1/10th of a mile. I think it was closer to 3 months before I could run 2 miles. Contrast to today - tomorrow I've got a 10 miler, and last night was a 5 mile run, 90 minute bike (on the trainer), and two mile run with no breaks in between. Not attempting to brag, but be persisten and relentless and you'll be able to do thing that will inspire awe in people you used to think were "in shape." You've got at least 1/2 of it figured out - simple carbs are in fact the devil, and getting your exercise in is important. Don't neglect your protein and fit in some strength training and you, sir, will be an unstoppable specimen of superhero ability and appearance!

    Nope...never hired a trainer. I just studied (and continue to study) everything I can get my hands on regarding nutrition and exercise. I would occasionally pick up ideas for new exercises by watching the trainers with other clients, and from some group fitness classes. Don't get me wrong - a good trainer can be great..I just couldn't justify the expense so long as I continued to make progress on my own. I could probably do this Ironman thing on my own too, but I am shopping for an experienced coach anyway. It's such a big deal to me, I want to stack everything possible in my favor.
