My Story

Hi my name is Ben and I have been overweight most of my life. I quit smoking after 14 years 3 years ago, I weighed 220lbs. Last December I went to see my doctor my weight was 272lbs and my blood pressure was 144/100, obviously he said that I needed to do something. I have been dieting, watching my calories, and walking on the treadmill at least 40 minutes every day, Now my weight is 238lbs and for the first time I am happy about being on a diet. I work away from home so I used eat out 5 nights a week usually fast food, it has been hard not eating the foods that I am used to, even harder than quiting smoking. Now my diet consists of fruit, salads, yogurt,wrap sandwiches from gas stations, subway, and frozen dinners like weight watchers. I would like advice on things and/or places I can eat away from home. I am learning that there are other things to eat besides cheeseburgers, but I think the biggest thing I needed to work on was my portions. When I would go to a fast food place I always would get two meals, now I haven't had any of this stuff in almost 4 months. Me and my wife have a 7 year old daughter we always tried to teach her better eating habits than our parents taught us. I am learning so much about healthy foods now, and it has changed the way I think about what she eats. Its only been 4 months but its hard to believe the junk that I used to eat, I miss some of it but I am much happier this way and I know I will be succesfull. My goal is to be 200lbs and maintain that weight, hopefully I will reach that by this september. I am looking forward to advice and support from people like myself.

My Goals For This Year:

I would like to get my weight down to 200-210 lbs and continue to be more active.
