Yeah, I gotta start doing the bike thing. My best judgment has led me to eating less recently, and I'm already working hard during the day...and have gone from 315lbs @ 6' 2'' -to- 272lbs @ 6' 2 1/2''

I'm pretty sure If I implement some more aerobic type exercise into my daily regimen, I'll definitely get there.

Congrats on your first significant weight drop, wish you the best of luck.

Awesome man! I'm currently slimming down, but toning up, so my weight'* been a bit of a see-saw after the initial 10lb loss.

Whatever you're consuming, try to spread it out along the course of the day, from wake-up to sleepytime. This way your metabolism is increased and your body'* internals are in contant busy mode while your awake.

Good luck with the diet just make sure you consume enough nutrients at least 1200 calories a day. I recently started a VLC diet and well at under 800 calories a day and eating no meat after a week it put me in the hospital. I am now on a 1500 calorie low fat diet but against the doctors orders I have still cut out meats.

I weigh a little more than you do so lets keep in touch and compare notes and whatnot on our progress. I find it much easier to diet when you do it with someone.

Good luck to you and be safe.

Update! 25 lbs total lost, I am now down to 240lbs, but still look fat as ever. My pants feel looser, and now I find the need to tighten my belt just a bit more.

I need to start riding my bike again, I stopped riding when my grandma went into the hospital due to my nerves being frazzled.

I AM still eating good though.

My 2 cents.
Remember that it has taken many years to gain it. Don't expect it all to come off in a few months.
Those people on "The Biggest Loser" have professional trainers workintg with them daily.
Way to go.....keep it up, but remember MODERATION when excercising

I am in a little different boat than you, I am trying to cut down to 185 from 215 to do Bodybuilding competitions in Nov or Dec.

I have lost 12 pounds within the last month (i am about 203) which is for me a hugh deal. Most of this is from the diet I am on, although I have been gaining muscle too since I work out 4 times a week. In body building its 70% diet 30% working out.

I would tell everyone you know about what you are doing so you get a little more motivation to continue riding your bike and what not, because you dont want to be a quitter in front of your friends. I did that and thats probly the only thing keeping me hitting the gym 4-5 times a week and still eating the way I do.

Another thing should help you out is small meals at least 6 times a day spread evenly apart. I am sure you know that though. Its amazing, when you do that you dont feel hunrgy anymore. Sometimes I even feel like skipping a meal (which I dont)
