Ultra R-A-N-T of the year!

I am twenty-two.

Have you ever seen someone that is fat/chubby and thought, "Wow... they'd be HOT if they lost some of that..

Well guess what. I AM ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE. How could I know that?

Well, right now I am not in shape. I do not attract girls, well not pretty ones anyway. (except one, she's cool). I am overlooked and underrated. It wouldn't suck this bad if I was used to it all my life. But guess what? There was another side... just 3 years ago I was prom king and I had some of the hottest girls EVER tell me I was hot and they wanted me. Of course I was in shape too. I could dress very sexy and I could work magical wonders.

I WILL NOT LET FOOD BOTHER ME ANYMORE! There is PIZZA in my fridge. I will not eat that. I will piss on it and throw it away. I am tired of living like this! Too fat and lazy to even ride my bike anymore!

No more! No more! I will crusade against this evil empire of food! I am tired of this cluster-FC[K] my life has been!

It is war!

I will not let this TRUE SCUM 'food' push me around! PROGRESS will be made, I shall BLAST THROUGH! It is time to be VIOLENT. Use flamethrowers and miniguns on the enemy, nuke them! No mercy! No bush war style, just TURN IT INTO A GLASS FACTORY!

Food shall be DESTROYED. Now!

Not any more.

Formula4, good luck.

Say, perhaps you might want to visit the Clydesdales/Athenas forum? They are very helpful over there.

I'm 25, have a couple extra pounds...somehow the other sex finds me sexy still, though!

If you used to be in good shape just a few years ago, it shouldn't be too hard to get back into shape with proper diet and exercise. Don't destroy all food! There are plenty of healthy foods that taste great and you can eat a lot of.

Good luck.

Worry and the stress resulting from worry is far more "fattening" than any food.

All you need to do is: 1.) Make sure there is no underlying health problem for which "excess fat" is symptomatic (and deal with it if it exists); 2.) Get it through your head that if someone does not think you are "hot"...it's THEIR problem and not yours; 3.) Do you want to really get 'involved' with someone who thinks more of appearances than other things...such as intelligence?; and, 4.) If someone rejects you because you are fatter than they think is "pretty"? Their loss.

And...Get out there and ride! Fit does trump fat...

My shop is currently out of stock on your requested film, 'Asian Ladyboyz III'. We usually can only special order it because its not that popular. Just email me so we can sort this all out. Thanks.

In my mind, there's nothing wrong with being "fat," but having determination to change that. There is something wrong with those that feed that bad habit or fail to follow through.

Not to rant (much), but I was very much overweight about a year ago, and every time I looked at the mirror, I knew that I couldn't keep being that way. I was short (5'8"), but somewhat heavy (185 - 190 lb). I decided to get on the spinner for three times a week and cut back on some foods I didn't need (but not go ultra-healthy). I got enough money to get a good starter bike (a great Costco Schwinn), and I just rode, rode and rode some more. Before I knew it, I was in the 170s. Then I got myself a road bike, had an accident and totaled it, then got a much nicer road bike that led me to two centuries and a LOT of mileage afterwards. I am now at 158 lbs and am in the best shape of my life (i.e. I have a six-pack. WTF?)

I really wish I was like another poster here that actually took a before and after photo. To me (and everyone else that thought I was dying of starvation or something), the change was dramatic. This year was also the first winter where I didn't gain any extra weight (as I usually gain 10 lbs sort of automatically during this period). I actually lost a bit of weight during this period due to winter cycling brutality. When you make it to that goal, you feel better in every single way!

Good luck, man!

A little unsolicited advice...

The best thing you can do to immediately change your eating habits is to have breakfast everyday, eat your big meal in the middle of the day, and have a very light supper. You will be amazed how quick this works.

And ride more.

To add to the above:

You might also want to throw in a few (small) snacks every two or three hours. This will inhibit any hunger craves that result to large lunches/dinners. When and if you start exercising seriously, this will help the increased pangs of hunger you will receive throughout the day. I usually recommend vegetables (bananas FTW) or Balance Bars, as those are very filling, but moderately light. The Special K bars are alright, but I usually felt pretty hungry after having one.

Also, drinking more water helps A LOT. It seems like such a small change, but you'll be surprised how beneficial this practice is.

Get out on your bike and RIDE! Great way to burn the fat!

Six years ago, I weighed ~195 lbs at my heaviest. Today, I weigh 140-145 lbs and it seems I can keep that weight relatively constant. I'm pretty sure cycling helps a great deal...

I'm right there with you dude. I used to weigh 440#, but now I am in the low 200s and have been for 9 years (knock on wood). The food addict is still in me and I struggle with it every day. Keep it up, I'm here for you.

the real world isn't some PC dream where anyone decent would be oblivious of what you look like.

I'm in the same boat...5'10 and in the mid 160's. I've got at least 10 - 15 lbs i need to lose. I feel like i've been cutting down on bad food intake, but its hard to tell at the moment. I've started cycling again too...a real short 12 mile loop...i'm happy enough that i can do it at a 15 - 16 MPH pace...but this time 5 years ago i was riding 3,000 miles a summer. Down here (orlando) i should be able to do that all year (since it never gets cold). But motivation + stress are a real killer for me right now.
