I'm in. My gf has been fattening me up the last few years with her excellent cooking. I told her no more big portions!
I've put on 25+ lbs the last few years.

I'm at 199. Goal is to get back to 175.

It's funny I just saw this thread. My wife and I have been on the Medifast plan since April. I've lost 85 lbs and she's lost 90. It wasn't something I had really planned on doing, I did it because she wanted to do it but was afraid it would be too hard to do alone. I guess it would have been hard watching me eat a pizza every night. Losing the weight wasn't hard really. I try not to say that very often because I know how much people struggle with it. I just followed the plan and ate the food you buy off of the Medifast website. You eat every two hours to keep the metabolism going then have a "lean and green" meal for dinner or lunch. Your allowed 6 oz. of a lean meat and a lot of no starch vegetables. I've really learned a lot about watching the nutrition content and calorie in take. We are getting ready to transition off the diet part and get back to a normal healthier diet than what used to be our norm. It's really been a great experience, I was up to 250 lbs (at 5'8") and was really uncomfortable riding the bike. I gained a lot when I started a new job that wasn't as physical and as a result the last few years I didn't ride as much as I used to. I weigh 153 now which is less than when I was in my 20's.

I couldn't recommend Medifast to everyone. A lot of the food isn't that great tasting but once I got used to it and saw the results I didn't care. If you're not picky it may help. My wife's client is our health coach. It's nice to have someone to ask questions but after about a week we really didn't need her help much, it's a pretty simple plan.

Well somewhere in the history of this thread I stated I was 220 and wanted to hit 180. Well I got to 191ish around Thanksgiving when I ran the 1/2 marathon. Since then it's gone to hell in a hand basket. Up to 199 as of this morning......so back on the horse.

Got a 10k end of Feb that I have a goal time of less than 48min so I think I'll be back to the 190 fairly quickly, now if I can just get over the hump and into the 180s.

Damn eating disorder!

Hey, but now you know you can do it!! You got this.

I'm actually having the reverse problem. I had gastric bypass surgery almost six years ago at 310 pounds. Today I'm down to about 157!!! Too skinny. Yes, I'm more flexible and my wife says I look great, but my back is so jacked up I can't exercise (going for a surgery consult the 17th) so hopefully I can get it fixed and get back on the exercise horse. I'm definitely a little malnourished and need to be better about taking my supplements. I like being this light though as it sure is easy to move around and my joints, except for my back, sure thank me for it. Good luck, guys.

I will be 43 on the 18th and I started my life style changes March of last year.

I am 5'8" - 5'9" depending on which gas station I am running out of. lol

I was 379 lbs on March 11th, 2013. Today I am down to 228lbs with more work to do with body fat loss and muscle gain but I have given my life the changes to get it done.

Congratulations Brian and Bogie! Great accomplishments for sure. And Kris, 199 is better than 220. Keep it up.

For anyone considering it, I got the family a Nutribullet for Christmas. What a kick ass little machine. It really does work better than anything else I have ever seen.

Went to Costco, got some big bags of frozen fruit, toss in a banana, a scoop of protein powder and holy crap - what a tasty smoothie. Been drinking these about 40 minutes before working out and feel turbocharged in the gym. The kids tend to be breakfast skippers, which is a terrible habit. They have been enjoying these as well. Dunno if the Nutribullet is is really a weight loss thing, but it is definitely a feel better energy thing.

Amazing amounts of weight some of you have lost. That has got to be so liberating!

That's great, you've not only lost weight but it looks like you lost years too. Glad to hear you've changed your way of thinking. I always joke that losing the weight is the easy part but keeping it off is something else.

Congratulations.

Thanks. Yup. The key is to change your entire way of thinking. If you don't start with the mental changes the rest won't stick.

This pic is after I had lost 106 of the 151 lost so far. I actually hate the word lost as I have no intention of ever finding them again.

Wow! Great inspiration from Brian, Bogie, Kburggibbs, Andy, and Wiley. I hope to be also reporting some similar successes.

Thats good... You're losing weight pretty consistently. If you want to maintain you should probably up your protein intake... That'll help you keep weight.
