Bob - after

Bob lost 172 lbs!


What were your weight-control goals?
I am trying to reach 250 by my 40th birthday which will be in February, 2004.
What motivated you to lose weight?
My first motivation was a cousin having weight loss surgery. I decided to see how much I could lose without surgery. But my most important motivation was and still is, I want to live longer than I was going to be able to do at a weight of over 650 pounds.
What was your weight-loss method?
In a nut shell, my method is eat less and move more. While that can be pretty hard to do, I made myself do it and am happy with the results. I now keep to 1,000-1,200 calories a day, walk a minimum of two miles every day and drink enough water to make a duck nervous.
What were some obstacles you encountered while losing weight?
So far, my only obstacle is myself. Don't get me wrong, I am doing very good so far, but there are days when I think about giving up. I then overcome that thought and move on towards a better me. My family and friends have been great!
What tips do you have for others who are trying to lose weight?
Seek support! While trying to lose weight is hard enough, going it alone can be nearly impossible. I will submit a side by side photo of myself that shows the difference from March, 2002 to November, 2002. I think it speaks for itself. I will submit another photo once I reach another major milestone.
How do you feel now that you've lost weight?
I am feeling a lot better! I do not get tired while doing normal every day things and I can now go to a concert or drag race and know that I will not feel like I need to dial 911 every ten steps. I am still quite heavy though, and am working on making it to a much more "normal" weight. When I get there, and I will, I know I will feel 1000% better!
How have the products or services offered by CalorieKing assisted you in your weigh-loss journey?
I am too new to Calorie King to have used many of the available services. I do think however, that the ability to share with others, my goals, achievements and set backs is of great benefit. I use the calorie/BMI tools and from time to time check into the food data bank. I know I will use more of these services as time goes by.

Is this the right time and program for me?
