At work today we were having a discussion on weight loss and getting into the groove of losing weight. My boss is a big guy who has lost a lot of weight and is changing his eating habits. One of the guys I work with lost over 100lbs in the last year. Both of them are trying to encourage me to lose weight. Last time I weighed myself I was 285lbs (I am 6'3). I am certainly a big guy. I am one of those "ugh.. fat kids" who can go to a buffet and eat 3 or 4 plates. I work two jobs and so I do eat a lot of fast food and a lot of snacks. I enjoy eating, in fact earlier this month I went to Hut's hamburgers in Austin, Texas and had two large hamburgers and large fries. I love eating. I suppose most people do and there are some people who can eat way more than me and never gain a pound, I haven't gained too much in the last five years but I certainly haven't lost anything. We had the thread about fat kids, and really didn't seem to go anywhere. I would be curious to hear other peoples stories. Are their other people that are in my position where they have decided they are big people and that they really have no desire to lose weight or that they don't have the desire to put forth the effort to lose weight. Or those who have decided to take those measure of exercise, portion control, counting calories, diet pills, etc. What are you stories? I put this in PRSI because I know that it could go that direction as discussion continues.
