Hi everyone,
My name is Bill, and unlike many who were overweight most of their lives. I was the athletic skinny kid next door. But due to some serious injuries I received early in my life, I found myself unable to stay nearly as physically active as I once was. Although I still had the appetite of an athlete. Over the years my weight crept up to 340 pounds on a five foot eight inch frame. I knew I was overweight but denial kept me from taking a good look at myself. Then one day while at a doctors appointment at the local Veterans hospital I witnessed my doctor write these words in my medical chart, "morbidly obese." It woke me up and that is when I decided I had to do something or die at a young age. I asked my doctor for help, but nothing worked. He finally suggested low carb. I hadn't heard of it before because to tell you the truth I never even thought of losing weight. I thought it was useless because I couldn't even walk at this point. A combination of my weight and disablities. We decided on Protein Power. So in early May 2002, I started my journey. From the start I did great. When I hit the seventy pound loss point I was able to walk with the assistance of two canes. By January of 2005 I had lost 105 pounds bringing my weight to 235 pounds. I was doing great and decided to reward myself with one of my indulgences of pre-Lcing days. Just a little Ben & Jerry's. Weeeeeellllll, 6 months later and about 15 regained pounds, I found myself restarting my WOE. Since my restart in early July, I've been true to my WOE and have gotten my weight down to my present 204 pounds for a total of 136 pounds lost. I learned my lesson from that little cheat. And that lesson was that I can't cheat. So from my restart date of July 7, 2005 to the present I have remained cheat free. Bringing my cheat free days to a grand total of 216. I still use two canes to get around but now it's only because of my disabilities and not my bulk.
Sorry for the length of this post, I hadn't intended to be so long winded.
