A little over a year ago I weighed 210 lbs. and I was a junior in high school. Then one day I decided that I was going to get down to 160. Once I achieved this, I lowered my target weight. Now I weigh 125 and I feel good. How did I do it? I didn't follow a diet, because I was never able to stay on them, so I kinda did my own thing. I stopped drinking cola, and switched to diet. I also read portion sizes and ate the proper amount at dinner, rather than eating a huge amount. I never snacked...or at least I tried not to. I rewarded myself at the end of each day that I did good with a sugar free Klondike bar (not the healthiest snack, but ice cream was my vice). If I snacked during the day, I wouldn't get a reward.
I hope that I am well accepted here, because I want to help you all genuinely.
And now I have a question...
My father weighs a lot. He has tried to lose weight like I did, but he just doesn't have the self-discipline that he needs. He has decided to get gastric bypass surgery, but I've heard it's risky. For everyone who has undergone this...were you satisfied with it?
Once again...I'm here for support... :)
