Really inspirational post. Thanks for sharing! I especially appreciate the observation that Diet was 90%. I have suffered for years under the self delusion that I can "work off" my weight like I did in my teens. I am a very strong "fat" man. 100 calories indeed is easier to avoid then working off 100 calories!

I am trying to reduce from super clyde to clyde status and finally clyde emeritus!

My library has this book. I'm going to check it out. 4 years ago I weighed 282 lbs and now I'm 211 lbs. Through exercise? Diet and exercise. Initially I lost a lot of weight a few years ago by running. I went from 282 to 212 then leveled off at around 215 for a while and got up to 220. I then joined a gym and started weight lifting, running on the tread mill, doing stepping classes, and a few spinning classes (15 times) but mostly weight lifting 7 days a week, Mon-Fri at 5:00am I was there at the door. My weight went from 220 lbs to 242 lbs but I lost 8" in my stomach, 7 1/2" in my thighs, my body fat went from around 30% at 220 lbs. to 21% at 242 lbs. I was doing weight lifting for strength. If you want to lose weight, try a dedicated weight lifting program with a plan but work on 20-30 reps with a low weight for endurance
