Quitting smoking was easier than the dieting, I dropped from 220 to 170 like some 7 years ago, it was a deal the wife was doing, and I just ate the same stuff she did along with reducing portion size. Cut the sodas out except for the few diet ones I could tolerate.
We both started going to the gym, but this was after all the weight loss. She lost over 100#s and myself the amount mentioned above. I loved the weight lifting, I stopped with the birth of our daughter, it was damn near impossible to get up at 5 in the morning and go when you had 3 hours of sleep lol.
I would love to start back, but I'm afraid my years of lugging these piles of shyt diesel engine parts and stuff have took their toll on my shoulder joints etc, that and it seemed my muscles when I lifted would tolerate more than my joints would, was always pulling somthing.
It is a lifestyle change, you have to be dedicated and want to do it. I even tried some of the fad diets and all it did was make me more frumpy and intollerable than I already am.
Good luck with whatever you try, and keep with it, even if you have a weak moment just get back on the horse and keep on riding.
