    Just wanted to stop in and introduce myself.
    My name is John and I am huge again.

    Starting in 2007 I let myself go from 220 to 418 lbs withing the course of 2 years.

    In 2009 I started eating right and working out and got down to 270 within a year and half and have maintained that weight for years until maybe last year with bad eating habits and poor exercise practices (none) have managed to get up to 311lbs.

    I want to nip this in the bud right now and get right and stay right.

    I am now 44 years old and losing the weight this time seems a little harder than it was the 1st time.

    I have joined the forum to get a public log going, as I know this helped me last time.

    Look forward to being a part of the family here.

    Welcome! I'm sure you'll be back under 300 in short order, and from there 275 is very attainable.

    Welcome (back?). If you have questions or need advice, there are people here to go to. Start a journal. The best part of this community us the accountability and support offered. That is where a journal is important.

    Also remember that it is not an all or nothing proposition. 50 % is better than nothing and 80 % allows you yo be healthy and to still enjoy an life.
