Was my biggest issue. I love it. I hurt my back pretty bad aug of 18. I was drinking more beer to help with the pain. I would drink 3 unibrouque trois pistoles a day. Well I finally broke down and got my med card and started on rso for my back. I have lost 60 lbs and am now 210 lbs, which is 10 lbs lighter than my college athlete days 25 plus years ago. of course I have a lot less muscle mass lol. Beer was my biggest issue , it caused my stomach to expand and I ate more because of it. Now i literally eat a small sandwich and i am stuffed.BEER
Awesome story!!! Keep up the great work!!Aloha Gang,
I’ve been slacking over the Holidays and into 2020, I put on a solid 18lbs. and I’m approaching the 300lb. mark. Weighed in this morning at 295 ugh. So it’s time to do something about it. I’ve read some great post on this thread, and will use for motivation and encouragement. For me it’s been a life long struggle, as a Hawaiian that loves to eat. I don’t want too get long winded and put up a very lengthy post, so I’ll keep it as short as I can. Ok 9yrs ago I fell into a category called Super-Super Morbidly Obese. Yes that’s right Super-Super Morbidly Obese, I didn’t even know there was such a thing. In order to qualify to be in this category ur BMI must be over 80, mines was 81. At the time I weighed
Yes Fat Albert status, well for those of u that r old enough to know who Fat Albert is. At that time I had every FAT BOY health issue u can name, including CHF and my Cardiologist gave me 10-12months to live. My heart was enlarged and struggling, also pumping fluids into my lungs that were 80-85% filled. It was a wake up call for me, then my wife dropped one more bomb telling me she was pregnant. And that she didn’t want to raise our children without a father. At that point I finally flipped the switch in my head to do something about it. Not only because I was dying, but more so for my wife and keiki(children). Well as u can see I’m still here, I’ve lost more weight then weight then all of u weigh over 350lbs. I need to pump my brakes, and slap myself in the face. And get back in line, I never want to go back to where I was. Life has been a Blessing everyday, I’m back doing the things I love, and loving on the Ohana(Family). So that’s my FAT BOY story, I will keep u folks posted on my Battle. Stay focus we all can do it.
Mahalo ke Akua
Aloha @BigAbe75 to answer ur question I’m 5’11”, I tell everyone I was 6’2” but when u pass 600lbs and add gravitational forces u shrink. I like u want to get to my High School football weight too, which was 225lbs. So I’ve got a ways too go, even more since I went backwards over the Holidays. Glad to hear that u’r doing great urself and winning ur battle. Keep up the great work, and U’ll reach that goal. What wakesurf board do u use? I need to find a Blahlah(Big Boy) board. LmkAwesome story!!! Keep up the great work!!
Do you mind sharing your height? Not that it matters much at your starting weight.
My story is similar, though not quite as extreme. Steadily got heavier after college and always sedentary jobs. I’m 6’5” and was 460 in 2016. I didn’t have any health problems, yet. But, at that rate it was just a matter of time. Lost 120, then found 60... now losing again and finally feeling like I may have stumbled on a program that I can stick with. Weighed in at 356 today. Down 28 since Jan 6. I’ve got a couple periodic goals in mind... 1. < 350 2. < 325 3. < 300. And super duper awesome goal weight is 260. (11th grade football weight)
Not sure what the difference is, but this year all of this feels much more doable than it has in the past. Starting off the year with the wife on the same eating plan was a huge bonus and made the first several weeks easier.
I used to laugh when searching the internet looking for advice on surf boards for bigger riders. But, I found one that I’m happy with and was surfing ropeless behind our yamaha last year at 360ish lbs.
This year is going to be even better!!
