For me it is a matter of health. Once I got that straight the weight just started to come off. I have three brothers all with diabetes and heart problems. My father was diagnosed with it at 78 but looking back I think he was a diabetic in his 50's. He just never got really overweight and I think it was missed. Some of his health problems at that time were related to diabetes. At 50 I don't want what everyone else in the family is going through .

Weight is the result of what you have been doing for the past week.

Both, but health now more than ever since I was on the verge of a heart attack. I had to have a stent in my left anterior descending artery in my heart since it was 98% blocked. I have already lost almost 100 pounds so I have met my realistic goal and am now heading toward my idealistic goal which is only a few pounds away now. This heart incident kind of caught me by surprise since I have been working out for over 2 and a half years. We have also been eating healthy foods and I have never had high cholesterol. My doctor told me that I was doing all the right things but there is one thing I could not escape and that is genetics. My Dad had a heart attack six years ago and ended up having to have a quadruple bypass surgery. So, maybe doc was right! I am doing better now and am in cardiac rehab so I am on my way!

I also have a family history of diabetes. I agree that you need to focus on the health and the weight should take care of itself. Be honest with yourself!
I know I track all my food here but would neglect the beer or two I had after dinner. Not hard to guess why I didn't have much success.
I've started a LCHF/paleo-ish lifestyle (NOT a diet - as this suggests that it's temporary to me).

Good Luck.

Focusing on health instead of the numbers on the scale is a very wise choice that many people forget. Being a yo-yo dieter I can guess that you do not like most diets, my suggestion is to find something that you can stick with for the rest of your life otherwise you will just quit it again and that does you no good. I found that a "diet" was not good for me, so instead I just limited my calories. Figure out how many calories you eat on a normal day then slowly start cutting back. Say you eat 3000 a day, keep track of that and make sure you do not go over for a week. Then the next week cut back to 2900. Once you do not feel it is too limiting (week or so) then cut back to 2800 and so on. That way your hunger cravings will slowly get tamed.

Another thing to do is to get a heart monitor that tells you how many calories that you actually burn in a day without working out and figure that as your baseline for calorie intake to shot for eventually. For me it is about 1800 a day but everyone is different.

Hi,

I'm new to this forum and its good to see there's a man section on this site.

I'm a pretty big guy (133kg or 294 pounds) and have always been my whole life.

I'm a bit of a yo-yo dieter, but this time I'm gonna stick with it.

I want to be around a long time for my kids

I have a family history of diabetes and knew I had to do something about my
weight now before it was too late.

How many other guys out there have a history of family disease and are more
focused on there health more than fast weight-loss?

Looking forward to meeting some other like minded humans ;)
