Start out slow and increase. Don't push yourself too hard. Just remember to eat your five veggies and fruits and dribk plenty of water.

Greetings Jeff,

I had a big epiphany a week ago and can't seem to stop stemming on it. What if at the end of your life you were at the end of the journey that you described, at your weight goal, etc. The real question is why do you want this? For me, I want freedom from having to worry about eating/exercising and be able to enjoy life. Check it off the list if you will, but then again I am a goal oriented freak. I'll start the game for you...you lose 50 pounds and then you will...reconnect with a friend from high school...go on the vacation to the Croatian Island...I'm stretching here because I have no idea why it is important to you and after all that is the only thing that matters.

As for the journey, it is like every other thing we successfully complete in life, little steps with big results.

You can do it!!

Karen

Jeff,

emoticon to one of my many homes, here in SparkPeople Land! You've been given some great advice, and I won't take that away, as it's solid advice. If you're concerned about not being able to get out and walk, go to Wal-Mart on line, as it's the only place you can get this, that I know of. Check out a DVD called "Walk Away The Pounds" by Leslie Sansone. She the walking Queen and the DVD that I just mentioned is the one I cut my teeth on. If you get any other, as I have many, the pace would be too fast for you to start off with. Give her a try. If I'm not mistake the DVD is about $10.00. Let me know how your journey goes!

Be blessed,

- Nancy Jean -

Hi - my name is Jeff, and I live in upstate NY. I've always been a "big guy"....I'm 6ft4, and usually weigh, plus or minus, about 300 pounds. I used to work in mental health, where size was often a factor in dealing with patients. And I've always felt that I derived part of my identity, from my size.

Weight was never a problem - or at least I never perceived it as a problem......a number of years ago (probably more than 10), I was diagnosed as Type 2 diabetic....and I was maintained by oral medications. I could still eat and drink whatever I wanted - as that was why I had medication. Due to the nature of diabetes, in addition to the oral medications I take, I'm now maintained on 3 IMs a day of insulin.

I've never been one to go to the gym, and with the often severe weather during the winter months, its difficult to go outside and walk, especially when temps remain in the low teens, and there are no sidewalks.....

I' currently at 301 pounds, and would love to get back down to perhaps 250 pounds...once the warmer weather arrives, then will go out walking..and the complex I'm moving to has a rudimentary workout room, and will avail myself of that....

Would be interested in hearing from other members....
