I am 34 years old and weighed 447 pounds when I started my program January 14th of this year. I weighed a couple of days ago and am down to 400 pounds. Losing weight is the hardest thing that I have ever physically had to do and there are many times in the past where I have tried and failed. However, I have done something considerably different this time. I have made God and prayer a center focal point in my weight loss program and for the first time in my life I honestly feel like I am going to lose and keep this weight off. Before.....when I would weigh and find that I had not lost any weight after a period of time after putting forth so much effort....I would usually quit and go back to my eating habits. This time I have not done that. Here is also an interesting fact that I learned. If you are sedentary and want to know what it takes to maintain your CURRENT weight then multiply your current weight times 10. That will tell you how many calories approx. that it takes to maintain what you currently weigh. By always eating under that number you will lose. Anyway....I am new on here and just thought I would share. I feel that anything that God has a hand in has to succeed. Take care and God Bless.
