Wow. Three back surgeries?! And here I was feeling cranky when I slept wrong and still got up to run.

How are you now, several months later?

Between 22 Sep 10 and 7 Oct 11 I had 3 back surgeries...talk about frustrating for an overly active person. I did learn one thing - you have to heal before you get back to the routine. But after that ya have to kick it in and get'er done even though the mind wants to use excuses...

I would recommend that you run out and get the book Body for Life by Bill Phillips, it is a quick read and gives you the information. He teaches to exercise six days a week & eat clean six days a week, give yourself a day to eat what ever you want and let your body rest. I weighed 355lbs Feb of 2010 and an older friend that was buff told me about the book. I looked at the thumbnail before & after pics on the inside cover and found guys that looked just like me. I read and applied what I read. Today I am at 266lb and my goal is 230lbs or less by the end of the year. It is a healthy lifestyle that makes it healthy weight loss and makes it sustainable. I eat six healthy proper portioned meals (because I know that I am going to eat something again in 3 hours I do not need a large portion) each day and I do cardio three times per week and weights three times per week in my home. I hope you will take a step back invest in your future by reading Body for Life and applying what you read. If I can loose 89lbs so far, then you can too. Decide to do it for yourself and you will change your future.
God Bless,
Josh

I've lost 30lbs in the last three months by going low carb.

Read: Gary Taubes: Why we get fat. It's about the science of low carb eating and will get you on the right track. You can look at the Atkins books too (I'm not technically doing atkins, but there's some good basic informaton there about what you should or shouldn't be eating.

Too bad you didn't start 6 months ago. You could have done it in a healthy manner. Just as putting on 34 lbs in 3 wees would be unhealthy.

Loosing weigh can be done relatively easily. Doing it in a healthy manor is the trick.

Why is it we scorn people who gain 34 lbs in 3 weeks, and laud those who loose at the same rate.

Im a 40 yr old male. I need to get 2 hip replacements. My first surgery is scheduled for September. I also have lipodystrophy (where you basically lose the fat in your arms & legs, and it redistributes to your abdomen). It is impossible to lose this weight according to the drs. I am determined to lose at lease 30 pounds no matter what it takes. I have lost 20 pounds before but I am finding it almost impossible to start my diet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
