Hi, I am William and I am 343 lbs. I have been overweight pretty much my whole life, but it’s time for a new me. Here, I go again on this voyage to a healthier lifestyle. I know it will not be easy, and there will be some road blocks, but it’s my time to bust through them and continue down the path. Wish me luck!

My Goals:
In the long run I would like to lose around 142 lbs, which would but me at 200 lbs. For my short term/weekly goal I would like to lose about 2-5 lbs a week. Hopefully, by July 1 I will be less than 300 lbs. Also, I would like to be able to run/walk a 5k by May 5th. Also, I have come to enjoy trail riding and my ultimate goal is to ride the Chickasaw Trace 8 mile loop without stopping at every hill.

Start Weight: 342
1) 10% -308 ()
2) 20% - 274 ()
3) 30% - 240 ()
4) 40% - 205Goal

My Program:
Well, I joined Weight Watchers at the beginning of 2010, but it’s been a slow process. Keeping track of points is a little boring, but since I started keeping track of my food on Sparkpeople.com it has been easier to keep track of my points. Also, my wife and I both have started eating healthier and cooking dinners at home. We have a subscription to a magazine called Clean Eating, so we try recipes out of it every week.

On the exercises front, I really have not been doing to much, but I have started working out more then I have in a long time. I have started swimming and riding my bike, so it’s been a fun process. Hopefully, I can start doing more cardio during the week.

    Hey there. thanks for the add. It sounds like you are off to a great start. Bike riding is great cardio. I've just gotten into it this year and I'm loving it! I actually made 2 rides already over 25 miles this month. Keep tracking all your foods and the exercises will come. Best wishes to you for continued success! I know you'll hit ALL your goals! Take care and God Bless. Rick emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Yes you can !!! Getting to 200 lbs will take some time but it could be before the end of te year for sure! I had great results I followed WW for to help me on portions but I used super foods and a nutritional plan that gave me great results so I know it can be done and 7 of my friends have lost over 100 lbs as well. So believe!! IT can happen. If you need some support let me know I'm in your corner!!!
