I want too be in the best shape possible for him and my family but I'm starting too loose hope because nothing seems too work. I've heard that this is a good community too try too seek help. I'm asking for help from anybody. Please I am %100 motivated too reach my goal.

    Hi Curt. What have you been doing so far to try and lose weight? I understand the importance of wanting to be better, healthier you for your family. It will take hard work, dedication, and some great willpower but you can do it buddy.

    losing weight is 90% diet (or more) the main thing is to sort out your eating and how many calories you can have per day and you will lose weight quickly

    Congratulations on your son!

    You should start counting calories. Buy a food scale and start weighing everything you eat. Start by just cutting down on "comfort food" such as juice, soda with sugar, candy, etc. Try to get an idea of your maintenance calories so that you can start planning your weight loss and have control over it. Then decide on how much to lose each week - a rule of thumb is that you need to eat about 500 calories below your maintenance level every day in order to lose 1 pound each week, about 1000 calories less a day to lose 2 pounds a week and so on. Weigh yourself daily and track your weight over time. It will fluctuate on a daily basis but you should see a trend downwards over time. I would aim at losing about 3 lbs each week if I were you as there are major health benefits of losing fat at your size, but maybe the best advice is to try to lose as much as you feel you can sustain for a long time as you will have to lose weight for a long time in order to get down to a healthy size.

    You should also start doing some resistance training so that the weight you lose will be mostly fat.

    I was about 230 lbs in March this year and I am now about 177 lbs, following the stickies on this forum. You can turn this around, it will take time but if you stay consistent you will lose weight. Best of luck!

    was going to say this as well

    OP, you need to have a rough idea of how many calories you're eating. whole foods don't help if you end up eating like 4k calories per day and your maintenance is (hypothetically) around 4k too

    OP, you're adopting a defeatist attitude when it doesn't even sound like you've approached weight loss with any real structured intent...

    You need to at least get an idea of your calorie needs, and get yourself into an energy deficit while keeping protein adequate and (hopefully) doing strength training too.

    Heck, I would bet if all you did was consume 4 meals a day consisting of 500 calories each while walking a few miles a day, you'd lose 2lb in a week easily...

    This all really good feedback from a lot of you guys. Its helping me figure out a good starting point. I know some of the feedback is blunt but it's what I needed too hear. What is a good consistent workout plan. I love hiking trails for sure but I need a good plan for when I'm at home. You guys are awesome, Wish I would've reached out sooner.

    I strongly recommend you get your nutrition squared away, someone else said it’s 90% of the battle, but it’s actually 100%, because you can’t out-train or out-exercise bad nutrition. No matter what you do for exercise if you’re still eating too much you’ll never lose a single pound.

    In addition to the Don’t Look Past the Basics thread in this forum I recommend you check out the first post in the below linked thread. The #1 thing you need right away is a digital food scale that weighs down to the gram, you can’t get by without one. You can get one for less than $20 online. Good luck man!

    Good advice here too.

    And OP, don’t think that you’ll HAVE to weigh everything you eat forever.

    However, in the beginning you need to learn the basics about how calories, macros, and food volume are associated and without a quantifiable way to measure what you’re taking in, you’ll likely eat way way more than you think.

    In time, it’ll become very much second nature, and you can relax on being so meticulous on measurements.

    But for now, you gotta familiarize yourself in the 101 level stuff.

    Hi EiFit91, you mention cutting back on candy. Did you do a low carb diet to lose your weight?

    At your weight counting calories is important but not that important right off. You can start by eliminating or GREATLY reducing certain things from your diet:

    Liquid calories including fruit juice, non diet soda, alcohol

    Processed carbs including sweets, bread, chips, pasta, tortillas, etc

    It isn't so much that these are BAD foods, it's that for how many calories they contain they don't satiate well and you tend to overeat them. The foods below will satiate well and hunger control is your biggest challenge when attempting to lose fat

    Include the following as much as possible:

    Lean cuts of meat

    fish

    Veggies especially green ones

    water

    By immediately doing these things you will notice a good weight drop in the next 4 weeks. In this timeframe educate yourself on calorie intake, etc by reading the stickies at the top of the forum. The more fat you carry the faster it will come off if you do things right
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough

    Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

    Don't give up. Everybody fails and has setbacks. The main thing is to keep at it. Track every calorie you're consuming until it becomes a habit. Once you start losing weight, it will motivate you to keep going.

    Some good info above already.

    I'll just say that there's no magical formula or diet plan.
    It's purely calories in vs calories out.
    You can lose weight eating cheesecake if you ate less calories in cheesecake than you expend in a day. Is it the healthiest thing to do? No, but I'm making a point of calories in vs calories out.
    You simply need to eat less.

    So, tracking your calories for a while is a good place to start because I guarantee you, you have no idea what 2200 calories looks like and I can assure you, you are eating more than you think you are.

    Some hard truth bud; at 330, you should be able to lose 2-3 lbs per week extremely easy.

    Many members have given good advice and I don't mean to separate one but read Tommy's post #18....then read it again.

    I've been honest with you and I'll continue that by saying it's all willpower. Is it easy? Nope
    Is it worth it? Damn straight

    The benefits of better mobility, a healthier body, being ably to run and play with your son, and the pure self satisfaction of knowing you made progress are worth every minute of it.

    I have faith you can make some postive changes man
    Go get some

    No, just a consistent calorie deficit. I live by the stickies on this forum - get enough protein and fat and the rest is flexible. If I cut carbs completely my gym performance and ability to concentrate tend to suffer.

    I did keto once, about 8 years ago. Dropped almost 30 pounds in three months. A year or so later the weight was back on, and more. I think keto/low carb is a good idea for people who have diabetes, for most other people I think it is like other "diets" in that it is hard to stick to it forever. There is just so much good food that will be eliminated. For instance, lasagna with squash will never taste as good as the real thing. Indian food without the rice and bread, tacos without the tortillas, etc. Cannot imagine going through my entire life without those.
